Natural Eating: Everyone Thinks They Know

You can start your search on google for natural eating or clean eating [or God forbid healthy eating] but just know you will be disappointed. Everyone thinks they know about clean and natural eating, but most of the crap you will find is just plain wrong. I have no faith in the people telling me to read the label or follow the food pyramid. I don’t even feel like they are really what I am looking for?.?.? Natural Eating to me is something different. It would consist of knowing what I need to eat to thrive in health both body and mind. It is literally the very thing that could drive your survival.

If you and I went to the store and looked at labels would we feel better at the end of the day? Would we have known all the things to avoid?

Natural Eating should be easier

Thank you for shopping face down

You may know more than I, we may come out pretty well. But this article is about looking at some alternatives to the mainstream advice, expanding on what I have found more recently, and trying to give you and I some “tools” for making better choices from this point on.

It will Save You Now

I feel like you and I are on the same page, but if you are not seeing the big picture let me spell it out: Natural Eating will save you money, time, health, energy, quality of life; shall I keep going? I mean I could…

If you eat something that makes you feel bad, let’s say sluggish as a huge bready meal does for me, why would you keep doing it? Do you not think you will lose out later? For instance, those 1-2 hrs I feel sluggish, I could literally fall asleep behind the wheel, nothing gets done work-wise, and my wife says I am irritable. If we want to look at wealth alone that meal cost me between $40-120 depending on what I am doing and what I could have done instead.

Listen don’t take my word for it just take a look at these articles from Harvard:

Healthy plant-based diet linked with substantially lower type 2 diabetes risk

This interesting article says whole-grains save lives but fails to distinguish if the people not eating whole-grains are eating some other form of grains.

There was another article I read about salt. The gist was that if you cut salt out for a few weeks you will start to automatically hate fast food.

You Actually Will Save Money

Guess what else!?!? You can save some dang money!!!

Yeah, no joke, people always say, “eating healthy is expensive” guess what your definition of healthy sucks if you want some insight into what I am talking about, check out this film That Sugar Film (links to Amazon) our hero eats the so-called healthy way only to find his body and mind in dire straights.

My wife and I also did our own natural eating experiment based on The Whole 30 (links to Amazon) the first thing we noticed is we were spending way less at the grocery store. Cutting the crap out cost less… What? If someone tells you it is too expensive to eat “healthy” then you know already that they don’t have a clue what it means, and they likely didn’t try. Between eating less in total, because we felt less hungry, and buying higher quality calories we saved money week after week.

It Will Save You Later

Here is the kicker of it all; eating natural will save you money now, and your health later. If you were in a survival situation roman noodles seem like a good investment, but those seed-savers will be running circles around you. You would be better off to learn about canning and other food preservation techniques like drying, then you are buying crap.

I have always wondered; if an MRE is designed to last for 7 years what chemicals make that possible? Do you think eating MRE for an extended period was something they really tested for or designed them for? Sure, stock up, but watch out. Know that temperature diminishes the shelf life dramatically.

(Sep. 2, 2005) - Thousands of meals, ready-to-eat (MRE) are stacked on pallets in hangar bay two aboard the Nimitz class aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75), waiting to be distributed to those in need along the hurricane-ravaged Gulf Coast. The Norfolk. Va., based ship will serve as the command center and afloat staging base in the waters off the Gulf Coast. The Navy's involvement in the humanitarian assistance operations is led by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), in conjunction with the Department of Defense.

So not only can you save your money and health; now and later. But you can also save your survivalist plans [if it ever came to that]. Yes, you read that right eating natural can keep your plans for Armageddon on track. It is a tactic that pays off in almost all for the long-term strategies.

Eating Natural is Eating Clean and is Truly Eating Healthy

Your good ol pals at acme diet corp caught on to your desires. Now they are marketing the crap out of “healthy eating”. And they have done a great job of pulling the wool over our eyes. If you did not see the previous recommendation That Sugar Film (links to Amazon) gives an interesting look at this little marketing ploy that is designed to separate you from your money and make you feel really good about the crap you are buying because it says “healthy” on it. Here is another interesting look at the industry as a whole (links to Cooked on Amazon) and how we got to where we are.

For me it used to be I would crash after every meal,

Sometimes it doesn’t matter how uncomfortable it is

But here is what I can tell you I learned over the last 60 or so days we have been eating Natural and Clean and Healthy; it works. For me it used to be I would crash after every meal, not closing my eyes and micro sleeping was near impossible. Now I know I only experience this when I eat certain and very specific things. Guess what, that’s great! I mean now I know!

Man jumping and cheering on beach

Yeah he knows what I am talking about

I feel like I have broken out of a damned trap designed to keep me passive and foolish. Or as they say, “ignorant and dependent”. What I am trying to get at… Eating the right way can literally be a matter of life and death, but more than literal it can also impact our general health. The things we put into our bodies are important to our survival.

It Comes Down To Good Choices

I kind of went all over the place just to say one thing. Eating a natural diet is healthy by a matter of practice. The benefits are numerous and often missed when you look at the cursory information or the value of right now. Eating healthy takes a little more work in the kitchen and at the store. But the rewards are fantastic. From a survival standpoint (which I will get into more detail soon) I think it is the right tactic and you need to start now. I would think it wouldn’t matter as to your overall strategy. This is a blanket tactic that will pay off in the long run.

Leave a comment, tell me the honest truth about what you think. And please share this with others.
