Hello eKa CIRCLE
Today I cooked lunch for hubby and I. It is a crisp winters day; blue skies out to celebrate. Hubby had a purple sweet potato on the bench I always see that as a bit of a “hint hint.” So I fried it into a delicious warm salad. “Fried you say eeek- I thought you were all about healthy?”
I got to thinking about the fear people have around fat. “FAT IS BAD” has been the mantra- I personally never bought into that one as I noticed they replaced all low fat products with items packed with carbs, sugars and countless chemical cocktails of thickeners. Besides the substitutes taste @*!#! We fast track a little and see that it is the processed carbs and sugars that have caused most health issues that were blamed on poor old fat. Strangely you may have noticed though that the good fats are demonised by mainstream, even though countless studies have shown miraculous things such as improvements in cognitive brain health when coconut oil is introduced. I am just giving one example. Other oils like our precious olive are infiltrated without standards by the adding of other vegetable oils and still being allowed on market as 100 percent olive oil, what robbery- much like the honey -it has glucose syrup added. How does this happen?
When I speak on fats, please know that I am speaking of good natural fats.
Healthy free farmed halal or kosher animal fats ( I say this in love even though I choose to be vegetarian), cold pressed and organic natural oils like coconut, olive and avocado. I would definitely steer clear of any oils like canola (rape seed says it all!!), vegetable & margarines. The heat temperatures used in processing make them incredibly toxic to the body. I am astounded that when I was writing recipes for a major world wide health food company they instructed me to replace the coconut oil I had in a recipe for margarine! Needless to say I dropped that client like a ton of bricks. It is pretty clear that margarine is one molecule away from plastic and I am fairly certain most people know that now- for a corporation to say they are promoting health and still recommending people eat margarine blows my mind. Indeed this world is upside down. Big business has a lot to answer for. You call yourself whatever you like but “by their fruit you will know them!’
One can see the movement of healing that is happening with those embracing keto, spokesmen like Pete Evans are having amazing results backed by trained professionals that agree. Alas they are heavily censored, mocked and shutdown by guess who- yes big business that is in bed financially with the media. What is an expert anyway if the morals are “sold out” for a cash payout to influence you? I always bring it back to the energy involved- what has one to gain for speaking out the truth if they are not receiving the currency of a paycheck?There really is no excuse for not educating oneself these days; there is information available if one cares to dig and search as opposed to being spoon fed.
Leviticus 3:16 says “the fat is Yahs”…. indeed if we are the bride as were the high priests of past then it is ours; at least until we are shown a better way.
When I lived in Asia I was astounded at the amount of food these spritely slim people eat. They graze all day, most of it deep fried- yet they were not fat. Neither were our cultures in our not so distant past. The only ones suffering obesity were the ones influenced by the western diet. It got me thinking. The oils they use there are mostly coconut and palm; now I know palm oil is controversial due to rainforests but my goal is to have you see there are some oils that are more superior and some that are just plain toxic for the body. Don’t you find it interesting that most processed manufactured foods choose the toxic?
Long long ago (pre lockdowns) when I was able to go to the gym everyday- I met a gal that was working out really diligently. She was so strong and so determined I had nothing but respect for her. Her goal was to lose weight and yet it wasn’t budging much at all. I offered to train with her (which was great inspo and motivation for me) as we trained I would chat about other areas of health, for example some obvious ones most overlooked like the motivation for a workout being love energy not hate or self loathing. Then I taught her about food choices one of the main changes she implemented was reintroducing fat. Lots of people trying to lose weight stop fat altogether which means they overeat as fat is what satiates and makes food taste great. A little whisper about not over training and embracing some well deserved rest…fast forward 6 months later she had lost a whopping 22 kilos and had never felt better. I was so jolly proud of her. If you want to take things further binaural beats help vibrate the cells and lift our metabolism and burn through fat cells. It gets very interesting looking at that as a lightbody.
Fat is not your enemy. For as long as we are operating in these bodies our cells require good healthy fats, inside and out. Look at the mediterranean diet it speaks for itself. Look at the Japanese when they eat so much oily fish. Try telling an eskimo to survive without their fat!
It is time to return some love energy back into our food sources and stop seeing the fat molecule as the enemy. We are what we eat including the frequency that we place into each food chosen. Let that energy be gratitude.
Here’s my yummy fried warm salad I made today for our lunch. Always add a handful of herbs from your garden to balance things out. Life’s beauty is about balance. Winter is a great time for a little good fat. Fat by the way is another great thing we call energy. Everything is energy. Please don’t forget most blood wars are fought over oil- the black gold. Its all about fractals.
