Raw Foods: Evolution In Simplicity

By: Jenny Berkeley, RN, Health Educator

My passion is about health and healing. That’s why I went into the medical profession and that is why I teach people about their responsibility for their own health and well-being. I’m not just talking from my soapbox. I have also dealt with my own personal health struggle before my enlightenment.

My personal motto is: “Good health is our birthright. Keeping it is our choice.” It all begins with us. The choices we make today flow as outcomes into tomorrow. The raw food diet is not really a diet; it is an exercise is mastering your ability to choose health, wellness and vitality. There may not be a need to go 100% raw if your personal circumstances do not merit it.

The mere act of choosing to go 50%, 60% or more raw can lead to amazing outcomes. On a personal level, you are choosing to not be part of industrial processing of foods and all the pollution, waste in packaging, waste in resources all along the supply chain, and everything else that goes along with it. By choosing to eat more living foods, you begin to connect with nature again. You find within your soul affection for living things in a way that is eco-friendly. By choosing to eat at high raw levels, you support local farmers because you desire fresh, tasty and locally grown foods. One small conscious choice leads to others which begin a journey on the path of eco-responsibility. It is truly an evolutionary path to a higher consciousness.

There is so much to gain plus raw gourmet foods are exceptionally tasty, filled with active enzymes, vitamins and nutrients, and the life-force of the food. They look almost like their cooked counterparts. But I find after a while, I want to simplify my diet. I want to use less energy. I want to do my part to help preserve our fragile world.

As with good health, being eco-conscious is your choice. The right choices lead to good health, enjoyment of the things of life, and so much more. And that is really what it is all about, isn’t it?

Come on out to Ecofest Barrie this June. Learn about simple ways to live in harmony with the planet while doing your part to be eco-friendly. Your choice makes a difference.

Peace and be well.
