Everyone wants to tell you how to eat. Everyone wants to sell you a diet plan. And everyone wants to make you feel terrible for your personal habits.
What nobody wants to do is build you up and show you how great your life can be if you actually eat well.
We all have dreams and desires for our lives. But what we don’t realize is that eating properly can actually help us to accomplish those dreams and achieve those desires.
That’s right, not only is eating well good for your body, but it can give you the energy and well-being to actually make your dreams come true so you can live out your purpose in life.
Wondering how to eat properly, so that this becomes your reality? Here are the most important tips to keep in mind.
How Eating Healthy Will Empower Your Life
What are the things that hold you back in life? What are the reasons you don’t spend enough time pursuing your goals and achieving your dreams?
Many people will provide answers like this: not enough time in the day, not enough energy, always sick, too tired, too stressed, not enough mental clarity, and so on and so forth.
If you want to live out your purpose, guess what you need? Time, energy, enthusiasm, a good spirit, and a body that can keep up with you.
That’s exactly why it’s so important to eat healthily.
Eating processed food and fast food not only kills countless people every year, but it leads to obesity, illnesses, cancer, lower levels of intelligence, and chronic fatigue.
When you eat good food instead of crap, you will have much more energy. You’ll sleep better at night and won’t feel tired and groggy all the time.
Your brain and body will get the nutrients they need, which will provide mental clarity and general enthusiasm about life.
All of this leads to lower levels of stress, higher levels of contentment, and more motivation to get after and live your best life.
How to Eat Well
Feeling motivated yet? Eating well will empower the life you dream of.
But how is it done? Here are some of the foundations you need to prioritize.
Eat What Nature Supplies
Healthy food comes from nature. Unhealthy food comes from factories and laboratories.
What does nature supply? It supplies meat, fish, eggs, fruits, and vegetables. Most of the time, nature’s bounty requires refrigeration.
If you want to eat well, you need to spend most of your time in the refrigerated sections of the grocery store, which line the outer walls.
That means avoiding the middle sections of the grocery store, where plastic-wrapped processed foods are waiting. These are foods loaded with preservatives, artificial ingredients, refined sugars, and harmful toxins.
Sure, they are convenient. But they will conveniently prevent you from achieving your life’s purpose if you eat them every day.
Sourcing Your Own Food
Want to take your diet into your own hands? Then learn to source food for yourself.
If you have a little bit of space in your yard, gardening for fresh vegetables is easier than you think. Plus, it becomes a relaxing hobby that provides fresh air and even a little exercise.
You can also visit your local trails and forests to forage. Mushrooms are a favorite among foragers and provide tasty, incredibly healthy treats.
Learning to fish is both fun and fruitful. Whether you live near saltwater or freshwater, eating fresh fish on a weekly basis can provide you with some of the healthiest protein and omega-3 fatty acids around.
Lastly, learning to hunt for red meat might be worthwhile as well. Venison, which comes from deer, is eom of the leanest meat you can eat.
And when you hunt your own deer, you are getting the healthiest meat on the planet. It’s all-natural, free-range, and eats only wild, natural plants and acorns.
Hunting is definitely a process and requires lots of time and energy. But harvesting just one deer can put upwards of 100 pounds of all-natural meat into your freezer.
Get Supplements Where Necessary
Some of the healthiest superfoods are either really expensive or really hard to come by. They might not be found in your local area.
In this case, adding some supplements is a good idea. You can add superfood powder to juices, smoothies, and other recipes. Reds and greens powder can provide you with multiple superfoods all in one.
Most people don’t realize how healthy organ meats are as well. These are the original superfoods, that past civilizations have relied on for thousands of years.
Organ meats include liver, heart, and others that we Americans aren’t too familiar with (or fond of) these days. And they are definitely an acquired taste.
Luckily, you can get these in supplement form as well, since the nutrient content of organ meats is outstanding.
Slow Food Is the Best Food
Here’s what most people don’t want to hear, especially in America; slow food is the best food.
Anything that is worth putting in your body takes time. Time to harvest, time to prepare, and time to cook.
The reason most Americans are unhealthy is that they depend too heavily on fast food or readily available processed foods. They don’t want to take the time to peel, chop, or cook.
But if you want to be healthy, you need to embrace the slow food movement. This is how humanity has eaten for their entire existence. Only within the last few decades have we abandoned slow, real food in favor of toxic, instant foods.
The best thing you can do for yourself, your future, and your family is to learn to cook and learn to enjoy cooking.
A Worthwhile Lifestyle Change
In all honesty, it’s difficult to learn to eat well. It requires a complete lifestyle change.
It’s not just about how you grocery shop. It’s about how you spend your time. Eating well requires sourcing, preparing, and cooking food. And that requires a reorganization of your day.
But it’s worth it knowing you have the energy and the health to conquer whatever mountains are on your horizon.
