BIOLOGICALLY, as humans we need to be eating foods suited for our species. Do you know you are a homosapien? The following is a list of animal which are all physiologically and anatomically different. As you read through them decide which of the animals you as a homosapien resemble.
* CARNIVORES: Cats, cheetahs, lions, etc.
* OMNIVORES: Birds – to include chickens, turkeys, etc.
* HERBIVORES: Horses, cows, sheep, elephants, deer, giraffes
* FRUGIVORES: Primates – apes, chimpanzees, monkeys
All animals to include humans, eat, have a digestive system, eliminative system, extremities, integumentary system, skeletal system, and urinary system. However, because they are anatomically and physiologically different, their systems handle the food they eat differently. I could go into a long dissertation of the differences, but you would get bored. Soooooo, have you decided which species you belong to? If you decided Primates, hip, hip, hooray. They are Frugivores as are all humans whether you like it or not.
Primates, the apes, chimpanzees, and monkeys know what to eat. Why is it that the human species is the only species confused about what to eat?
I’ve seen it for myself, and often tell my clients that when a table is set with a variety of foods and you put a child in front of it: the child invariably goes to the fruit first, then the veggies. My great-grandchildren always want the bananas, the grapes, the strawberries, and the apples etc. before any other foods. When their moms fill their plates with other foods, they invariably eat the fruits first, nibble at the other foods and (I’ve seen them) throw the rest in the garbage. It is generally mom, dad and other grownup ups that steer the children to the comfort foods, the cheesy foods, junk foods, desserts and candies.
The ancient Greeks and Romans ate a lot of fruit and lived to be 200 years old or older. It never dawned on me at the time, but when I took Latin in school, the fruits and veggies the Greeks and Romans ate were rarely ever cooked. They were eaten raw.
God intended for us to eat food for life, not death. God said to Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, (Genesis 1:29) “Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.” In other words, God ordained for man to eat the herbs and fruit in the seasons thereof.
Basically all mankind no matter your ethnicity are all biologically the same. I encourage you to continue with me on my journey to total vital health – to include the mind, body and soul.
Until next time, thanks for following my blog.
