Metabolic Metamorphasis

The definition of ‘metamorphosis is: A profound change in form of one stage of life to the next in the life history of an organism, as from the caterpillar to to the pupa, and from the pupa to the adult butterfly.

We humans, also have the adaptability to engage in metamorphosis. Not in the literal sense that we will morph from human state into a butterfly, but rather into someone who expands beyond their current self. Many refer to this as evolution. No, this isn’t about humans evolving into man, from ape. There are numerous ways we can morph, or evolve into bettered, changed, and revised beings. We have the ability to grow, to become more knowledgeable, more skilled, more compassionate and kind, more tolerant even. But this is more so about evolving within ourselves, in a dietary sense.

Ya know what I love about watching the waves roll up on shore? the eb and flow of the current that pushes in new water, and pulls the old, flawlessly, without second thought or hesitation. God designed the many waters of our world to do what they do, to maintain their optimum functionality, basically self-sufficient by Divine Creation. Are we too, not the same? I believe God gave us exactly what we need to not only maintain the health of our bodies, but the mental awareness to correct self-induced damage to our every cell. He also provided the perfect foods to achieve it, it just goes overlooked.

And God said, “See, I have given you every herb that yields seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food. Genesis 1:29

Just LOOK at the vibrancy! Why would we ever NOT eat this? Nature’s medicine….. we’ve heard it before. Nature, yes, but God’s medicine, by His Design… and it’s a beautiful thing.

Fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, grains, and the endless possibilities they present, makes for a colorful and healthy life – a sustainable way of living, utilizing the perfect WHOLE food plant based nutrition plan that God created Himself. Every tier of our plant based eco system is complete, lacking nothing. Every mineral, vitamin, amino acid, phytonutrient, antioxidant, and, yes, even protein building block, are all present and accounted for within the plant based lifestyle.

Our bodies were never meant to consume high fructose corn syrup, or anything else that’s heavily processed with copious amounts of unrecognizeable and unpronounceable ingredients. What has our government done to it’s citizens?!

They have made us dependent on convenience, and reliant on fast production. So much so, that we can’t muster the energy, the wherewithall, or the want, to spend a little bit of time in the kitchen preparing wholesome meals complete with a plethora of nutrition. Some of it isn’t even so much settling for quick meals, so much as it is the fact that we’ve been conditioned to actually LIKE and in some cases, love, these poor to zero nutrition food groups instead of real plant based foods. They’ve desensitized our taste buds, and watered down our standards, so a solid, clean living way of life, is almost unattainable, unless we break the cycle. We’ve been fed prepackaged crap for so long, that for the vast majority of this nation, that “prepackaged crap”……. is all we have an appetite for. Decades ago, various food companies and corporations sold their soul to big pharm, and whoever else padded their pockets financially, that all they began to care about, was more, and more mass production of their toxic “food” at minimal cost. By adding various dyes, this and that chemical, and whichever caustic preservatives they could get their greedy little hands on to use – they have, and are making no plans at stopping. They care more about the profit than the health of their communities.

Since when did we become so unimportant?

I’ll tell ya when. Since our government decided to get involved in our healthcare system years ago… that’s when. This isn’t about our precious little ACA that happened on Obama’s watch back in 2010, but rather when lobbyists, and various health organizations took a special interest in making and/or keeping US citizens sick and diseased years and years ago. My hopes is that you aren’t shocked to read that health organizations such as the ADA, the ACS and several others like it, actually willingly encouraged American citizens to eat the very foods that were linked to the contributing of the diseases, that they were “helping” us “fight.” The USDA doesn’t see to it that we are protected, because they’re too busy warming their cold dead beat hands in the back pockets of big name funding organizations, such as Tyson chicken, Subway, Oscar Meyer, etc, and their hearts are too cold to care. What’s even more comical is when companies sold the slogan that “fats” is what we needed to avoid, and mentioned NOTHING about sugar. Sugar is such a contributing factor to so many, if not the majority of health issues these days. It’s unconscionable, but, make no mistake, they aren’t losing any sleep over it at night. Think food companies are the only ones guilty? Nope. big Pharma companies like Pfizer, Merck, Johnson & Johnson, just to name a few, have made their many millions in keeping us sick. There isn’t any money in healthy people, there is only money in sick people. The health care reform this nation needs is an upheaval of the corrupt food companies, organizations, as well as the doctors who get kickback from them. Not that every health care provider is guilty of contributing to the catastrophic chaos that our government started, but there are numerous ones who also, care more about that Porche, than a cure for their patient’s illness. Sad, but true.

So what are you planting in your life? Health and healing are achievable by taking the smallest of steps in the right direction. A seed that is nurtured, be it an actual tree, or your mortal frame can grow to become balanced and nourished at every level. Take that first step today, or leap all at once and embrace a cleaner, more leveled, more vibrant, and much more delicious way of life! So many are under the impression that plant based foods are “boring,” or that they don’t taste good. This is totally myth. Ever heard the saying, “we teach people how to treat us” ? The same, almost exact statement rings true for our bodies. Our bodies treat us better, when WE treat our bodies better. It’s so simple.

Homemade black bean, lentil, and butternut squash “burger” patty, with all the fixings! Everything between these buns, is completely plant based. No meat, no dairy, the calories? WHO cares. I’m eating more now than I have in years, and have dropped body fat, and inches. My digestion? Better than ever. I was the girl who couldn’t eat anything other than those chemical cracker and cheese packs before 1:00 or 2:00 p.m, every day, or I was a slave to the bathroom. Couldn’t make a day without a ginger ale to soothe my tummy. I was malnourished and basically starving for good nutrition, that my body seemed to not be able to tolerate. SO, I switched my way of eating entirely, listened to my body, and went totally 100% plant based two months ago. Like I said, I’ve dropped weight, about 10 lbs, overall body fat % is down, clothes are fitting better, and my body doesn’t feel toxic for once!

This is one version of my nightly “nice cream” There is actually cauliflower in this, and I can’t even taste it. I just know it’s fuel for my body and it’s needed for optimum functionality, just the way God designed it.

The picture above is my homemade hummus.

Not only is it more cost effective, but, it even tastes better than store bought hummus. Honestly, this “taste preference” deal is somewhat of a new occurrence, within the past couple weeks to be exact. Since I’ve started eating cleaner, the flavored ‘healthy’ items, even taste chemically to me. Now, this hummus won’t last in the fridge as long as what a store bought hummus would, but that’s because it lacks the preservatives!

Get out there and enjoy life!

Live cleaner, enjoy more, love more, breathe in gratefulness, exhale frustration, and eat some plants!

  2. Thanks for the motivation!
    Step one for me is no processed food and minimize the amount of meat I eat and no dairy. When I eat this diet, I DO feel so much better! After a couple of days of no sugar and minimal salt, suddenly EVERYTHING tastes so much better. I DO know this but I have fallen into the trap of doing what’s easy (as, at least it seems, the things that stay fresh the longest, are those that are worst for us.).
    FYI, I was referred to your blog by your aunt, Pam Oesch.

  4. I know you don’t create this blog *just* for me 😉 and the food may be a secondary goal for you, but would you consider posting your recipes? They all look so yummy. I’d love to be less reliant on meat products, but the commercially available meat substitutes don’t seem to be very healthy.
