Spent most of the day curled up on the sofa reading Conscious Eating by Gabriel Cousens today, and came across this paragraph copied below that I loved. What is going on here? We have gone so far in the other direction that we think it’s normal… The fact that burgers & fries are standard (in almost any country nowadays), and raw food is so crazy and ”out there” is scary to me. We have to begin eating more simple organic food from the earth, the kind that our bodies truly need. Here is just a little food for thought to start your week. I hope you are with me in changing our habits, one step at a time, one person at a time. xx
”In today’s world of fast food and food irradiation, the relationship to food has become confused and degenerate. Many of us are disconnected and perceive as foreign the natural foods that Mother Nature offers us. The natural way to eat somehow seems ‘old-fashioned’ or strange. The diseases that unnatural diet causes are so rampant that they are thought to be an inevitable part of life. This is not the case. Western medicine approaches this problem in convoluted ways and continues to spend billions of dollars developing sophisticated technologies to treat headaches while continuing to bang its (and our) head against the proverbial wall. The one who chooses to stop banging his or her head against the wall by giving up destructive food habits is often ridiculed. Our culture has become so upside down that one who chooses to heal and maintain good health with a diet that brings him or her into harmony with nature is often considered the idealist or extremist, rather than practical or appropriate. If this seems far-fetched, consider all the people who have repeated triple by-pass surgeries for clogged arteries with out eliminating the proven cause of the problem, which they could do by adopting a diet that does not clog the arteries,” (Concious Eating by Gabriel Cousens).
