What an egg-citing time of the year...family, food and holidays. Easter, has been celebrated the world over for many centuries and irrespective of religious denomination, is celebrated primarily with symbolic food. In our home as it is many, its hot cross buns on Good Friday, and a massive family feast on Easter Sunday. Typically rich and decadant, it makes me feel like I need to alkalize the rest of the year.
You see holidays, Easter in particular have evolved from a wholesome traditional occasion to a commercialised opportunity for mass consumption and indulgence of foods that rob our bodies of health.
Ironically Easter, the world over is a symbol of the regeneration of Earth, so why not use these couple of day's off to re-evaluate where your are health wise and where you want to be? What you can you do to help your body re-generate health more effectively? What foods should you eat? What foods should you avoid? Ironically it's most of the foods that we celebrate Easter with, refined processed sugars and products, that we need to reduce. So this Easter in the midst of the food madness why not make like a bunny and munch on a carrot, some raw spinach or make a delicious juice. You see food needn't be unhealthy to taste good, its quite the opposite, the best tasting foods are generally in their natural state, raw, unprocessed, unrefined, full of flavour and always ORGANIC.
Give life giving gifts, foods that promote health, make everyone a delicious salad and at least enjoy before indulging in all the Easter fare.
