Nutritional Necessities: Adaptation to the Context

Version en español

versão em portugues

As humanity evolves, eating habits are transformed. Milk and meat have been necessary, especially for people who have lived as nomads (usually blood type B) and for people who have been hunters, either due to lack of knowledge to work the land or the Infertility of the soil they inhabit (usually blood type O), but, are dairy and meat products really necessary for our nutrition? The answer is NO. The only reason why these foods are still relevant is because of the presence of vitamin B12 that can easily be found in the consumption of boiled eggs. In addition, vitamin B12 is preserved in the liver.

Currently, we have a greater stability that allows us to develop agriculture in our fertile soils and transport the natural products to several places, making possible the consumption of the nutrients that we really need. For this reason it is possible to adapt to the context so we can really give our body what it needs to nourish our cells and bring more energy to maintain our health (click here to read about micronutrients for cell regeneration), this way, and associating nutrition with healthy habits such as learning how to breathe, how to allow emotions to flow, how to get enough sleep and doing physical exercises (click here to buy the ebook 7 Levels for Personal Empowerment, which brings practical exercises to integrate and create a more integral and healthy life), we increase our energy levels and we learn to relate in a more conscious way with our own body.

Now that we have the option of acquiring habits that construct our nutrition, it is important to begin to seek knowledge, to experiment with our own body (click here to read about expanding nutritional consciousness) and to find the most appropriate way to nourish ourselves. By doing this, we are supporting the construction of a more conscious and peaceful consumption (our bodies, the animals and the planet are grateful for it). These are some actions we can take to perceive the response of our body:

  1. RESTRICTION TEST: Choosing a food to suspend for a week, first beef, then pork, then chicken, then fish (according to each case) and then milk, cheeses, prepared meat products, etc. . This same test is good for all the food we eat, since each organism reacts differently and the idea is to find the foods that really give us energy because they nourish ourselves.

  2. SMELL AND TASTE TEST: The taste of food varies a lot, especially when there is a tendency to mix food with other foods, which is very common. The proposal is to take each of the foods separately, without salt, to feel if we really like the smell and the taste of them alone, raw and cooked.

By understanding how our body works and learning to give what it needs, we perceive that we can maintain a high level of energy during the day eating less (click here to read about eating less nourishing more) and restore our organs health and integrity from the cell (click here to read about the importance of proteins for cells).

Natural Cycles: Vegetables

Version en español versão em portugues

I want to be more respectful with life, and that’s why I’m going to be a vegetarian. I don’t want to kill living beings to eat them, I want to eat only vegetables. The question arises, do vegetables have no life? Should I eat them? How do I eat them when they no longer have life?

Vegetables are an imaginary group of plant species that is very wide and varied in the world. There are so many and there may be many more, the transgenics and the artisan selection of seeds continue to diversify our food reserve! It is a reserve that seems inexhaustible. Although we have to be careful with genetic erosion (see here what it is).

Our grandparents, and our grandmothers, selected the richest and most nutritious weeds, carried their seeds in order to give their grandchildren the best food. It is a precious process, it is the flame that we carry as humans. We have to thank that, their life.

Taking that into account, we must know that when we eat the plant it is likely that it took a huge effort to produce it. Not only we, but a series of humans who produce their fertilizers, who produce their seeds, who prepare the soil, who care for and watch over the crop, and then harvest,take the food to the table. All that chain is a little hidden lately, but it is amazing how much food we plucked from the soil.

We eat the vegetable in its most vital state, when it is richer and concentrates more energy from the sun and the earth. Food is energy from the sun packaged by different plants and animals into carbohydrates, fats and proteins. In grains, such as bread wheat and corn, we eat their babies, which are their seeds. Some are reseeded, others are eaten. Life works like this, this concept is called trophobiosis. Also the oil and charcoal that feed our industries are sun energy produced and stored by animals and plants millions of years ago, but that is another discussion (if you are interested look at this concept of EROEI).

I say that we pluck the food from the soil because the current technologies of usufruct of the earth are UNSUSTAINABLE, that is to say that in the future they cannot continue happening. All our food, all our constructions, all our technological tools, all our clothes, all our activities on the planet are inherently linked to destructive practices. There are a few exceptions, but they are isolated cases, the real tragedy continues to happen and scales are much greater than before. They say that having a child is the worst thing that can happen to the planet … I don’t know, for me, those people confuse life with death and death with life.

The more conscious people there are, willing to change, the more opportunity for biodiversity and ecological stability. We are potentially destroyers or constructers.

From the lettuce only leaves can be eaten if they haven’t started to bloom, same with cabbages. The broccoli and cauliflower can only be harvested at a specific time, it is the sepal of the flower, the first stage of flowering of the plant. Carrots and beets lose a large part of their fruit if they are allowed to bloom, we need to choose the most beautiful ones and removing the seeds, others we eat and thank. The same with animals … there are optimal times to eat them.

Yes, for both there are MANY technologies of sustainable production, but almost all affirm that there must be such a radical change that it must affect all spheres of coexistence between humans, nature and other species of micro and macro living organisms. But that’s another GIANT discussion.

It’s been a pleasure,

Nicolás.
