MY ECO-INTELLIGENT EATING PHILOSOPHY
The word "eco", you might be interested to know, comes from the Greek word "oikos", which means "house".
If you can envision your body and the Earth as a symbolic "house", you might also relate to the idea that the sturdiness of its foundation is dependent on the relationships that govern its ecological well-being.
The relationships that govern the health of our human ecology include our bodies, minds, emotions, and spirits, as whole. When these relationships are exchanging positive energy, we are healthy and whole.
The relationships that govern the health of our planetary ecology include plants, insects, animals, and ecosystems as a whole. When these relationships are exchanging positive energy, the earth is healthy and whole. The health of our bodies and the earth are inextricably linked.
The earth cannot be healthy if we are not exchanging positive energy with it, and it cannot be healthy if it is not exchanging positive energy with us.
We can exchange positive energy with the earth when we consume foods that are raised in harmony with the natural world. When we eat health-giving foods whose production has nourished the earth, the earth nourishes us in return.
