I’m sure you understand that eating a healthy diet is physically beneficial for your body. However, did you know that the foods you eat can also have quite a profound effect on your moods, your concentration, and your mental & emotional health?
Eating junk food puts many toxins in your body and leaves you feeling lethargic and crappy much of the time. If you’ve gone through a few heavy ayahuasca purges then you will have eliminated many of these toxins from your body, but do you want to put them straight back in again?
If you want to stay feeling positive – on all levels of your being, then it’s important to eat healthy foods. And by healthy foods, I refer to unprocessed foods that are locally sourced (when possible), fresh, natural and ideally organic (including meat).
I won’t tell you that every bit of food you put in your mouth should be healthy. Most of us have our guilty pleasures we don’t want to give up (like pizzas, burgers, beer, ice-cream… whatever). However, I do recommend using the 80/20 principle. If 80% of what you eat is healthy and good for you, then you can allow yourself your 20% of guilty pleasures without worrying about it too much.
In summary, my recommendation is to take a good look at your diet. If most of what you eat is unnatural, processed food then begin taking steps to change that as soon as you can. It’s a sad reflection of our world that it’s often a lot cheaper to eat junk food than food with positive health benefits. So expect that your grocery bill may increase. However, try to see it as an investment in your health and not an expense.
