Have you ever heard, you are what you eat? Discover what foods are dense and unsupportive of your good health and how to incorporate high vibrational foods into your life.
How do food choices help maintain a higher vibrational frequency?
One way to know if you have chosen a dense food is the feeling you have after you eat it. The feeling of being bloated, weighted down or lethargic. This can lead to feelings of futility and depression, lowering the vibrational frequency. When choosing foods to maintain a healthy body, fresh raw foods and high quality grains usually have a higher frequency. Also foods grown and raised organically and prepared with integrity have a higher frequency. More dense foods are meats, fats, & starches.
Another concern with the foods we eat is the prevalence of wheat allergies and gluten intolerance.
As defined by Mayo Clinic: [Wheat allergy is an abnormal immune system reaction to one or more proteins found in wheat. Allergy to wheat is one of the more common food allergies in children. If you or your child has a wheat allergy, the immune system has developed a specific antibody — a disease-fighting agent — to a wheat protein…
Avoiding wheat is the primary treatment for wheat allergy…
…celiac disease, an immune system reaction that causes inflammation in the small intestines when a person eats any food containing gluten, one type of protein found in wheat.]
One great way to begin a healthier program is to notice how you feel after you eat, without changing anything for one week. Then begin adding healthier options like organic fresh, raw vegetables and fruits, whole grains (quinoa, millet, oats) and nuts. Again, notice how you feel. Keeping a written record will help you stay on track and provide a valuable reference you can refer back to. This is a guilt free, long-term method for finding a healthier you, naturally. You may also gain greater awareness and insight into your body.
Remember, you can also add vibrancy to foods by giving thanks for nutrition and good health before you eat them.
