Using Mother Nature's Most Delicious Foods
Whenever possible, choose foods that are:
Whole: As nature provides them, with all their edible parts. Whole foods supply all of nature’s nutrients in a team.
Fresh, Natural, Real, Organically Grown: The foods we choose should be the real thing, full of their life energy, not imitations, which invariably turn out to have some health-damaging effect. Organically grown foods not only have been shown to be higher in nutrients, but taste better.
Seasonal: To be in harmony with our environment, it is a good idea to choose fruits and vegetables in season. They are less expensive and do not lose nutrients like foods that have been transported long distances.
Local: Local produce tastes better, costs less, and is more nutritious because it is picked riper and does not lose nutrients in travel.
In Harmony with Tradition: We should pay attention to what our ancestors ate and incorporate those foods into our modern diet whenever possible.
Balanced: It’s important to make sure there is enough protein, carbohydrates, fat, and micronutrients in our diet as a whole, and to include foods with a variety of flavors, colors, and textures.
Delicious: There is no point in eating “healthy” food if it doesn’t taste good! Our taste buds can guide us, when encountering whole, real, natural foods, to what we need and don’t need.
