Giving Thanks For Food :)
you are what you eat. this is an oversimplified statement and not entirely accurate, yet it is basically true idea for most of us. choosing to eat poorly, i feel, literally makes your body into a "chemical prison" of sorts. or more accurately it greatly influences how you view your world through the filters of chemistry, at the most very basic. if you don't have access to healthy food, i feel, what you can do is give thanks for what you have. the very act of giving thanks is transformational to energy/food. this is the most important step. no vitamin supplement can give you "heaven". but giving thanks can.

"The world will soon wake up to the reality that everyone is broke and can collect nothing from the bankrupt, who are owed unlimited amounts by the insolvent, who are attempting to make late payments on a bank holiday in the wrong country, with an unacceptable currency, against defaulted collateral, of which nobody is sure who holds title."

Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.

Re: Giving Thanks For Food :)
what you can do is give thanks for what you have. the very act of giving thanks is transformational to energy/food. this is the most important step.

 Quoting: pink cat


Agreed.

Many, if not most, of the old 'ways' have their roots buried beyond conscious memory in actual knowledge... In this case, knowledge of our connection to and use of energy, as well as how our bodies function.

On the purely physical, 3D plane, taking a moment to appreciate the food you are about to eat has very real benefits too. During that time your body responds to the stimulus (hunger, smell, appearance, etc.) and has time to prepare. Saliva, with its enzymes, begins to flow; the stomach produces more acids... this activity allows the body to fully break down what is consumed and enables it to extract every last bit of nutrition available in it.

Chewing slower and for longer than we normally do (I forget the recommended number of chews :) is another old "instruction". Doing that give the salivary enzymes time to do their work to its utmost.

Even most 'crap' food does contain quite a bit the body can use. If the diet is marginal, our bodies will make the most of what it does get... and filling it with light through thankfulness can indeed be transformational, imho.

Thank you for the nice reminder of something too easily forgotten!

I always pray before I eat. Not only because I'm thankful but that I want my food to be blessed because I don't know who might have handled it before I ate it.

It is, to me, sad how fast people forget the FOUNDATIONS of our fine country! This country was built by an armed population capable of fending for themselves, and will be lost by couches full of potato-sheeple riding their 52" HD-LEDTV's into the orwellian sunset. :(

Re: Giving Thanks For Food :)
I've thought about this before, have heard that positive energy can help you heal and be healthy regardless of what you may be consuming.

I may try and do this when I eat from now on, giving a short thanks for being able to eat what I am about to when others can't even do that.

I think maybe I get so worked up about eating right, (not that I shouldn't try) that I forget to be grateful that I can eat at all even if it isn't the best a lot of the time here.

Eating slower is a good idea too, though didn't think about the nutritional benefits part as much there. Same for the 3D thing.....little things can make a big difference can't they?

Good posts. hf

No one is perfect. A babe before walking will first stumble and fall many times but NEVER gives up until he succeeds.

Always remember, ultimately, to never follow any person's belief. Your relationship with God is between you and God.

If nothing else, remember this: religion = subservience, control and conformity, the same template as EVERY government

"Most believers would kill truth if truth threatened their religion." L. K. Washburn

"This crime called blasphemy was invented by priests for the purpose of defending doctrines not able to take care of themselves." Robert Ingersoll

"If anyone wants to know how God feels, it's a warm light as if the sun is poking through dark clouds and lifting your spirits with pure joy."

Science supports this theory! The observer affects the observed, this applies to food stuff too. The energy with which the food is prepared is important too, giving thanks imparts the enrgy of love into the food. hf

Only if you mean it. You don't want to know what goes into McD's food chicken nuggets are made from recovered meat that means tendons, fat, salami and other meats are blended into the chicken, chemicals etc.

Re: Giving Thanks For Food :)
This is true. We should thank God for the days we eat and also for the days we don't.

But back to topic, I eat 'junk' all the time. Pretty much everything is GMO. I also work labor and ride a bicycle as my main form of transportation. I smoke cigarettes and used to heavily use illicit drugs. I lift weights also and have done so for about 7 years now.

People can eat all the non-GMO fruits and veggies they want but the human body is designed for physical activity. It's proven that people who excercise have better circulation.

Eating healthy and refraining from physical activity that elevates the pulse rate to 120+ bpm will only accomplish so much. Eating junk high in caloric energy and burning through that energy using the bodies ligament, bone, and muscles to contract and expand against some form of resistance will also accomplish so much.

To each his own. I think I'm addicted to the endorphins now. Addictive personality.
