Let’s talk about real food. What exactly is “real food” and why is it so important?
Real food is food that is as close to its natural state as possible. It’s primarily unprocessed, free of chemical additives and rich in nutrients.
Our bodies constantly require nutrients to function and replenishing them with wholesome real food is absolutely essential for optimal performance and health.
One of my favorite quotes I have come across is “Processed food can support life, but real food supports health and adds to quality of life.” That is, in a nutshell why it is so important to eat real food. Sure, you can stay alive by eating processed, factory-made foods but you certainly won’t be feeling your best.
So visit those farmer’s markets and meet the farmers that grow our fruits and veggies, get to know our local fishermen who spend their days out at sea to bring us the freshest and healthiest fish and seafood, and it never hurts to make friends with hunters who harvest their own wild proteins free of antibiotics and hormones, sometimes they even share. Best yet, get outside and do it yourself. There is truly nothing more rewarding than harvesting your own meal whether you’re growing a garden in the spring, picking berries in the summer, foraging for mushrooms in the fall, or stocking that freezer full of nutrient-rich proteins all year round, having a connection with your food is life-changing.
