It is Friday. Friday is usually the day I head to the grocery store to buy enough food for at least a couple of days. As my kids grow, I seem to be at the store more and more, but that is another story. I don't mind grocery shopping. I actually find it enjoyable to go up and down the isles looking for inspiration. You see, I have two children, and as wonderful as these little divine beings are, they eat the exact opposite of each other. Seriously. So lately I have not really enjoyed my weekly grocery trip. I often feel an internal struggle as what to buy and cook (or not cook) for my family.
There is another reason I have been dreading my weekly visit to the store. There is so much junk in our food these days, like really bad crap. Stuff that is hidden in the food we eat on a daily basis. I am really having a hard time looking at labels. The "food" industry (I use this term lightly) is slowly trying to kill us. There are ingredients in our food that are shocking to say the least, and what is worse it seems that food prices have just skyrocketed.
The point of my little rant is that the more and more I am becoming aligned in my own Divinity, the less I am able to put "junk" into my body. Truly. I have really been thinking a lot about this whole situation. Food is faster and faster, less and less healthy and it feels more challenging to feed my body and my family in a truly healthy, divine way. Even though I enjoy cooking, I have just been in a food funk lately. Ever feel that way? It's like I am so inundated with information on how I "should" eat. I look at so many cookbooks, websites and Facebook pages for ideas. I have given way too much energy to this whole eating thing. Superfoods, organic, free range, raw food, all natural, BPA free this and that, coconut oil, sugar, flour, gluten free this and that. It's just too much for me.
I have decided that I am going to go on an information free fast this week (maybe even longer)! I am going to just stop looking out in the world for what I "should" eat and ask myself what would nourish me the best. You see when we ignore our own wise and divine self, we are not truly living in our power and Divinity. We are giving our power away to someone else. No one knows me, like me. Just as no one knows you, like you. So I invite you to go within and ask yourself what you want to eat, to do, to be. This philosophy applies to all areas of our lives. Go forth my friends, and inquire within. Let me know what happens. Until next time...
