Today I’m venting about our culture surrounding food. The way we purchase and consume food has been dumbed down to translating ‘labels.’ Moreso, labels that are often very misleading ‘low fat,’ ‘diet,’ ‘light,’ ‘no fat’ etc. Our attention has been diverted away from the what is real – and I say this quite literally… processed food isn’t ‘real.’ ‘Low-fat’ isn’t real. I could go on. What we need is to eat a balanced diet of high quality and low processed foods. Maximum ‘bang for your buck’ nutrition is what we are looking for! Not overly processed ‘wannabe’ foods. Never in the history of the human race have we seen more obese, chronically ill people – these people are fuelling their bodies with poor quality food and their wavering health is no surprise.
So in light of this, I wanted to share a few of my favourite online nutrition resources that have a particular focus on nutrition, good quality food produce and well… healthy eating!
- Sarah Wilson often chats about sustainable eating & good quality produce, she also shares recipes she loves
- Angela at ‘Oh She Glows’ has a beautiful blog with plenty of recipes catering for intolerances
- Pete Evans shares some of his paleo recipes on his site
- Jenny at ‘Nourished Kitchen’ shares an array of recipes with a focus on sustainable agriculture and nutrient-dense, whole foods
I hope you enjoy looking at some of this wonderful nutrition resources.
Love & light,
