We often talk about eating “whole foods” or “real food”. What does that mean? To me it means taking raw ingredients and mixing them together yourself. It means becoming more familiar with what food looks like at every step of its journey to your table: what a coffee plant looks like, what a coffee berry contains, how coffee is freeze-dried, roasted, ground up, filtered and decocted to make a delicious cup of morning Joe. The more steps we do in our own kitchen (grinding, brewing, filtering, drinking) the more contact we have with real food, the less need we have for chemical additives and the more control we have over what goes into our bodies. But, most of all, the closer we are to real food, the better the food tastes and the better the relationship we develop with the molecules that will become incorporated into our bodies. If food becomes our bodies, it goes without saying that, in order to know our bodies better, we need to get to know our food. Here is some Facebook inspiration about what “real food” means.

And, in the words of Michael Pollen of The Omnivore’s Dilemma, “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly Plants.” So, what are you waiting for? It’s time to get real!
