Welcome to Christene’s healthy food. This website is a labour of love and is a place where I am going to share information on what is known as a whole food diet. In fact diet is probably not the best word to use , as to many people the word “diet” means something of the short term to achieve weight-loss goals. The term diet has been banded around in the weight-loss industry for years, promoting the next best fad diet that all the celebrities are on and seeing ammmazing results!
No this is not what I mean when I use the word “diet”. In fact a better suited word would be lifestyle. – whole food lifestyle. It is a way to change your current eating habits into something healthier for the long term. So this website will be using the word diet in a context of what you eat and drink each day – not something you do for a short period of time to achieve a goal and then revert back to your old eating habits undoing all your good work.
Now let us get back to talking about what a whole food diet means. Whole foods diet, means eating foods that are as close to their natural form as possible, where they have little or no refining or processing and they contain no artificial additives or preservatives.
Under the whole food banner there are many different diet and/or lifestyle choices that we will touch on here. For me personally I am still a work in progress I follow the whole food lifestyle, I read, learn and then apply different concepts to my own lifestyle. For example I am currently learning more about sprouting and the benefits of fermented foods. So my journey is for ever evolving. I encourage you to do the same. You are the one in control of you, so if being on a fully raw diet doesn’t resonate with you, but you want to incorporate concepts from this diet into your own for your health and vitality then do so.
