Why ‘Whole Foods’ are EVERYTHING


HELLO HELLO! Welcome to our first ever #WellnessWednesday blog post! Today we are going to be chatting about ‘WHOLE FOODS’ … so if you’re not into learning about food or you don’t like to eat food or you’re not into eating good foods… stop reading NOW.

If you ARE looking for a some resources about things to put in your body to make it happier AND healthier, you are in the right place my friend.


What are ‘Whole Foods’?

Definition: “plant food that has been processed or refined as little as possible and is free from additives or other artificial substances.” (Thank you google.) For example.. Fruits, Veggies… good grains.

That sounds easy enough, right? Well.. it’s not. Take a good look at what things you may have in your fridge or in your pantry or cabinets. I am willing to bet most of the food that you have stored away in there doesn’t quite meet the requirements for ‘Whole food’. In today’s world it’s much harder to find unprocessed, unrefined, untampered with food. Even a lot of the produce we consume has additives or artificial substances added to it.

Crazy, right?


Why do we need ‘Whole Foods’?

Now, I don’t mean to scare you, everything will be OKAY. Not having a strict diet of only ‘Whole food’ will not kill you and hasn’t been proven as a cause of cancer or any of that kind of junk… our bodies just don’t function as well without them. ‘Whole Foods’ are an essential part to having a healthy balanced body and life!

Our bodies were MADE to process and use Whole, Fresh, food! Imagine a life where all you ate was ‘Whole foods’, I’m sure you’re picturing more energy, a more balanced state of mind. Perhaps, clearer skin and memory, greater health and vibrancy. You are SO right. Our bodies function on a whole different level when we give them the nutrients they need without all the fillers or frills. Eating more whole foods is essential to health and a HUGE step in the right direction if you are ready for an improved healthy lifestyle.


How can we incorporate more ‘Whole Foods’ into our lives?

That being said, how in the world are we supposed to incorporate more Whole Foods into our diets? Easy Peasy. Buy them. I know what you’re thinking… ‘how am I supposed to eat that stuff?’ RECIPES! If you are on Pinterest I am SURE you will find what you need to make these whole foods sound appetizing. Create meal plans, get your family in on it, make it a goal! You will thank yourself later for being so proactive with your health.

The truth of the matter is that our bodies crave these foods and what we can find at the grocery store wont entirely sate that craving or fulfill all of the nutrients our bodies need. That is the BIGGEST reason I advocate for supplements.

Specifically ‘Whole Food’ supplements.

In my opinion, if its not whole food… don’t buy it. Your body wont absorb it properly and it could cause some issues down the road. Just DON’T do that to yourself OKAY?!

If you are really dedicated to a lifestyle change and want to be healthier, you’re going to rock this.

Some of my favorite ‘Whole food’ Supplements:

Greens- Jade greenzymes

The ULTIMATE super food. You can literally survive off of this stuff and water. This will help alkalinize your system, promote better functioning organs (especially digestion/acid reflex stuff) and it’s definitely the best option for families who need some help in the eating more greens department. PLUS its great at fighting off infections and I even use it as a facial mask to suck out any impurities in my skin! (Seriously, if you have sick kids all the time THIS is a MUST.)

Daily Health- Kenzen Mega Daily (Men & Women)

Most daily vitamins are hard for your body to absorb.. but, because these are ‘Whole food’ supplements your body uses them right up! I LOVE the way I feel one these. My hormones stay so balanced. There’s also a ton of rocking antioxidants AND metabolism boosters. HECK YES.

INSANE Daily Nutrients- Kenzen Vital Balance

I am totally not a protein shake type of gal but, I make an exception for something that has literally changed everything about my health. This stuff tastes good and does the best things for your body. My immunity is much higher, my skin is brighter, my hair is longer, my digestion has improved IMMENSELY (more on that later) and I have a crazy amount of energy. (Not to mention this stuff is the bomb for both building muscle AND losing extra weight you may be carrying around)

Total Detox- Activated charcoal

Lately I have been totally loving on this stuff.. even though its not technically a ‘Whole food’ it will totally help scrub out all the gunk in your system to help you absorb your Whole foods better! Just make sure you continue to drink copious amounts of water to help it filter through!
