The Power of Real Food
“Please test your servants for ten days: Give us nothing but vegetables to eat and water to drink. Then compare our appearance with that of the young men who eat the royal food, and treat your servants in accordance with what you see.” So he agreed to this and tested them for ten days. At the end of the ten days they looked healthier and better nourished than any of the young men who ate the royal food. Daniel 1:12−15 (NIV)
Real food heals. Real food nourishes. The good news is that the list of real food is short, easy to understand, and easy to identify. The beauty of adding food that heals, nourishes, and satisfies you deeply is that it will almost effortlessly shift your body and mind into a state where you naturally crave what makes you thrive and feel good. As you start to eat real food, your cravings and sugar addiction will be replaced by deep pleasure and satisfaction for naturally sweet things.
