Natural Food

What is natural food anyway?  Natural food is food that is minimally processed by humans with nothing added that was refined or processed any more than is necessary to make it consumable.  Natural flavors are not necessarily natural foods because natural flavors are often made through a chemical process.   There is nothing that guarantees something called a "natural flavor" was naturally created.

When you look at our history as a species, we have been eating a raw food diet for most of our time on the planet.

Most people know the benefits of organic food, but fewer know the virtues of eating raw food and even fewer still know the benefits of eating cultured "live" organic and raw natural food.

Raw cultured "live" vegetables provide an excellent self-rejuvenating source of non-dairy lactobacilli, including acidophilus and lactobacillus plantarum, which aid the digestive process and can help alleviate digestive disorders.

The following is an excerpt from The Complete Guide to Raw Cultured Vegetables, Nature's Rejuvenative Foods, and their Use for Peace by Rejuvenative Foods founder Evan Richards:

The Most Natural Food Option

In the 1930s, Weston Price closed his dental practice so he could travel to study the problems of the Western diet. Michael Pollan, in his book In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto (The Penguin Press, 2008) discusses how Price traveled to the mountains of Switzerland and Peru, the bush of Australia, the jungles of New Guinea and New Zealand, among other places, to learn about how indigenous tribes eat. Price found that “isolated populations eating a wide variety of traditional diets had no need of dentists whatsoever,” Pollan writes (96).

Pollan notes that many of the diseases that plague us in the Western world today are very rare in traditional diets among natural tribes, and that tribal peoples assimilated into Western culture often see sharp increases in diet-related diseases when they start eating a Western diet. “The human animal is adapted to, and apparently can thrive on, an extraordinary range of different diets, but the Western diet, however you define it, does not seem to be one of them,” Pollan writes (100). (Today, author Sally Fallon, who calls raw cultured foods “super foods,” serves as president of the Weston Price Foundation.

Our goal for natural food is to perpetuate a consciousness on our planet where we humans are here to nurture each other with food; which is important for our health and the health of our relationships with each other.

Natural foods are free of genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Many foods these days contain GMOs, which some people think may cause harm to human health and the environment.
