I have a friend in London who, every time he invited me to his house, used to say: you can eat this chocolate because it’s organic.
And no matter how often I subtly remind him: “because something is organic, it doesn’t mean is good for you.”
It’s a bit like injecting organic heroin or smoking organic cocaine, it doesn’t really make it better or healthier, does it? Consuming heroin and cocaine is still gonna hurt you – whether is organic or not.
This incident has reminded me of the short examination process I used to employ when deciding what food to eat at the early stages of transitioning to a raw food diet, and it was very effective – still is!
It will help you too.
When face up with a choice of a meal, ask yourself these set of questions, and in this order:
1- Is it vegan?
2- Is it whole food?
3- Is it low fat?
4- Is it raw?
5- Is it organic?
As you can see, organic is the last factor in deciding which foods to eat according to my method, not because eating organic isn’t important, but because I believe avoiding animal foods, extra fats, and processed foods will go further in achieving the level of health you desire.
You should also note that eating raw is at number 4 – which is in line with my teachings of adapting your body to eat a raw food diet at a slow, steady pace instead of trying to eat 100% raw from the word go – because, I believe it doesn’t work in the long term.
