The real/fake test

It’s true, there is no denying it, to function properly our bodies need REAL food, not the packaged, processed, additive and preservative –laden goods we often find in our shops.

This begs the question; How do we know its ‘real’?

We can ask ourselves 3 basic questions; is it grown on a tree or shrub, does it come from the ground or does it come from an animal? If the answer is no, or not sure, then you can bet it is fake, not real.

We are all descended from so called ‘hunter-gatherers’ , early humans who had to go foraging and hunting to find their real food.  Today, a trip to the supermarket presents us with a vast array of ‘unreal’ food, tempting and attractive though it is. Due to our resilience, we appear to be able to cope with the strain this puts on our bodies – in small quantities. But the more our bodies are burdened with poor quality nutrition, the less resilient we become. Our bodies need REAL food to power them and importantly, so do our minds.

Food is our body’s fuel. It provides the nutrients that give us energy and vitality. It helps to buffer us against illness and to keep our bodies at a healthy weight. And food really can be our medicine, because so many foods have genuinely medicinal and helpful properties.
