This month November is a time to be thankful, not eat anything and everything, but to be thankful for the simple things that sustain us. Fresh fruit, fresh vegetables and organic meats. Choose, and cook wisely. Be mindful of what your cooking for others this holiday season.
First and always is to be thankful for our breath. We take the simple act of breathing for granted, we take our health for granted, we take our bodies for granted. “My parents never came down with cancer, so I wont either.”
We also take for granted that if we are healthy so will our kids be healthy, that is the furthest of the truth and here is why.
Every year 10,000-12,000 new man made chemicals never before exposed to the human body enter our environment, and through our environment enter our bodies. We are overloaded by toxins. Studies show 234 foreign chemicals cross the placenta into the fetus and over 170 are present in breast milk. Babies today don’t stand a chance against all these chemicals when they lack the good micro flora in the gut and lack whole food nutrition. Thus, Autism is a multi-generational disorder. Because the parents lack proper micro flora and whole food nutrition, the babies do not have the right micro flora and whole food nutrition as well, making them vulnerable to these toxins and other disorders.
Make your own sauerkraut, you can find the recipe below. Great for your digestion and full of vitamins and minerals. If you buy it at the store it’s Pasteurized , not the same.
Chemicals is our enemy, both in our food and our environment. As we are thankful at this time, also be mindful of the choices we make in and around our home (use vinegar). The food we eat, the chemicals we use to clean our house and the pesticides we use in and around our gardens. All affect us and our children in one way or another, now or in the future. If you don’t know, can’t pronounce an ingredient on a package of food, don’t buy it, cook with it, or give it to your children.
Breath, eat whole foods, clean with natural cleansers and be thankful every day. It should be the first words you say the moment you wake up.
