Did you know that the food you eat can impact your energy? It can! Food has an energy all it’s own.
We all know that some foods are healthier for our bodies and some aren’t. We’ve been taught for years that we should avoid consuming too much junk foods. They just aren’t so great for our bodies. And we have also been taught that we should consume more fresh foods, such as fruits and vegetables. They are good for us. But food is energy and passes that energy onto us. And every food has it’s own energy level.
As someone who is energy sensitive, this idea was even more important for me. Food holds energy and eating too many of the wrong foods can lead to energy depletion and sickness. We are all energetic beings, and influenced by the vibrations of the people and the world around us. Therefore every person can be impacted negatively by low energy foods and get improve with the help of higher energy foods.
So what are the best foods to consume to maintain or even raise vibration?
Which foods are energetically higher? Whole, fresh foods are best! This includes fresh produce (organic is best), grass fed and pasture raised meats, eggs from free range chickens, hormone and antibiotic free dairy, organic grains and legumes and high quality fats. When it comes to protecting energy levels, organic is always best. Organic foods are free from synthetic pesticides, herbicides and fungicides which could impact energy levels.
These foods are beneficial because they are found in their most natural state. Fresh produce gets plenty of sunshine and absorbs nutrients from the soil in which it was grown. The meats were all raised humanely without drugs and hormones. Because of this, these foods have a higher energetic footprint and are more beneficial.
What you should limit or avoid?
It should come as no surprise that junk food is definitely on this list. But the list is even more expansive then just candy and chips!
Industrial processed foods are typically stripped of most of their nutrient goodness. In fact, many companies often add synthetic vitamins and minerals to boost the nutrition levels. Unfortunately, these synthetic vitamins are not processed and used by the body the same way that nature created nutrients are.
And to make matters worse, often these same foods are full of synthetic additives…preservatives, artificial flavors and colorings and more that can, in fact deplete energy levels. Empaths and highly sensitive people are usually sensitive to chemicals. Foods that contain them drain energy and should be eaten rarely or avoided when possible.
Fast foods, sit down restaurant foods and convenience foods from places like your local grocery store deli are energy drainers. These foods are usually loaded with additives and preservatives that can be harmful to your energy.
If you are currently rely on a lot of packaged and processed foods, it is important that you consider beginning to add in more whole foods. It does not have to be a daunting process. Making changes a little bit at a time can make it much easier for you….and your family.
The great meat debate
Many other experts will encourage you to give up meat completely and move to a completely raw, vegan lifestyle. I’m not one of those people obviously.
Here’s why I don’t do that and recommend organic, pasture raised (and local when possible). I know what works well for me and my body. I’m regularly in touch with my own inner guidance…and that leads me to make food choices that are right for my body. Because of this, I believe that there isn’t one “right” way to eat for every body. And some people may find that they feel better including meat in their diet. I can’t make that choice for you….that is between you and your own inner guidance! As you start listening to your intuition, it will guide you to foods that feel better energetically for you. And you may find that you start leaving other foods behind.
What you eat is your choice!
