Wholefood Workshop With Vashte

On the 13th Sept 2014 – just passed- Living Life OutLoud held our first wholefood workshop– and it was fun! We made everything from snacks to wheatfree pizzas– to tasty treats and delights….

The point of these workshops is to share how I eat with anyone who is interested in learning basic skills, using beautiful organic ingredients where possible, using quality ingredients, and making wholefood easy- suitable to every single person no matter what the budget is, nor time constraints.

I want to share the power in knowing what to eat, when to eat it and how to eat- for a long term, healthy lifestyle– suitable to all dietary choices.

My philosophy in food is pretty simple: Keep it simple; Keep it delicious! If I don’t make delicious food, then I’m not interested. Who wants to eat bland, boring food? Little wonder we reach for the nearest chocolate cake when we are out if food at home is tasteless.

Wholefood ought to be bursting with flavour! Why?! Because wholefood uses whole ingredients. Ingredients that are often organic; or spray free where possible; sourced locally so that means not frozen and available all year round producing a meh flavour. Wholefood is easy. Wholefood will fill you up for longer because it is nutrient dense- not necessary calorie dense. = This is where a lot of our current problem stems from:

Calorie dense DEAD food but is nutrient empty -think anything pre-packaged, ready made, microwavable, fast food.

We need nutrient dense food, with fewer DEAD calories.

Using the processed and refined ingredients so readily available from supermarkets gives us exactly the opposite to what the human body craves.

Refined flour, sugar, fat free… sugar free, synthesised food, anything man has messed with …… very few of these ingredients are actually fit for human consumption. They offer little to zero nutrient benefit to the human body, but still come with empty caloires and then we expect out bodies to digest these chemically laden ‘foods’ – we wonder why there is a continual increase in terminal illness, children being born with terminal illnesses, obesity and a constant existence of illness- always running to the ‘doctor’ for more pharmaceutical drugs- which may ‘bandaid’ the problem presenting… but how many of you actually read those side effects? Which are very real. And very present.

Be honest….

Wholefoods can significantly increase your overall wellnessthe way you think – the words you speak- the energy you have each day – your attitude towards your life and even give you the strength to overcome the issues you face.

Really?  Yes really. These are my very strong beliefs and I am sure any person living a ‘wholefood’ life will testify how changing one thing– can be the instigator to changing so many other areas in life that you may not even consider to be inter-related. …

Wholefoods are simple. Wholefoods are easy. Wholefoods do not subscribe to one way of eating– but a wholefood lifestyle can give you the power to understand how ingredients affect your unique body and mind–  and what works for you. We are all different. When we come to accept that and embrace this fact, we are more able to make empowered decisions relating to how we choose to live our lives. Does that inherently make sense to you?

I am celiac- which means my body does not like gluten nor dairy. In fact the cleaner I get with my eating, then more this becomes very apparent. Some people have a belief system that says “it was easier when you just at anything’ – my question I ask those people who state this is this:

Would you rather have your body and your mind running below par as it exists in a constant state of inflammation from you ‘eating anything ‘ resulting in you getting the cold, the flu, running on empty, low energy, tired, bloated unable to lose those 5 kilos.. or 25 kilos, get grey hair early, dry skin, gas after eating, constipation, diarrhoea, pains in the stomach, headaches…

The list goes on, but this list is a list too many people live with each and every day! And think it is just the way life is for them.

pfff.

It really is not normal. All signs of discomfort are the body trying to communicate with the brain informing us there is something wrong. It is not OK to ‘live’ with these symptoms and pop a pill to dull that warning. NO!! And if that means changing up a few ingredients in your everyday diet is THAT  a big deal? Especially when many if not all these symptoms disappear.. sometimes even  over night… wouldn’t you think that it is worth giving it a try? Wouldn’t it be worth taking out inferior ingredients from your diet? Is it really that hard?

I can go on and on about the benefits of eating well. Eating well does not mean being sucked into fabulous marketing strategies out there every day.

  • Eating well does not mean thinking that shakes will lose the fat, or detox your body and mind.
  • Eating well does not mean dieting, nor does it mean eating 6 meals a day.
  • Eating well does not mean ‘vegan; ‘raw’; ‘paleo’; ‘protein shakes’….or any other label.

Eating well means understanding your own body and working with what you have. That simple.

Noone can tell you how to eat, nor what to eat. We are all different. Theories change constantly. What was ‘right’ last week is ‘wrong’ this week. What was right last year is changed this year. Consider the war between the doctors, the dieticians, the nutritionists, the naturopaths, the raw food community, the paleo community… on and on and on…. bah blah blah….

Why this war? Who instigated this? Who drives it still? Does it really matter if you are willing to examine a few ideas and come to your own conclusion- every person and theory that has been ‘proven’ right – has also been ‘proven wrong’ – it pays to remember this fact.

September was a blast and I know I opened eyes as to how to create beautiful foods with little time to spare, and money. I am all about keeping it real with no motive other than a genuine passion to empower people- mind, body and soul. It frustrates me to see so many sick people out there- when there is no need– and the answer is and always has been here, under your noses. But sometimes you just need a helping hand to show you the way- and then you fly like the eagles you were created to be – maybe I can be your helping hand..leading you into a fabulous healthy, and delicious Summer and Christmas… ?
