At Cor, we highly value nutrition.
We cook our organic, vegetarian meals with love and care. We believe in a diet based on healthy fats, lots of protein, veggies, fruits and whole grains.
But we see food not only as fuel for your body, we look further.
The phrase, “you are what you eat” is literally true. Nutrients from the foods you eat provide the foundation of the structure, function, and integrity of every little cell in your body, from your skin and hair to your muscles, bones, digestive and immune systems.
Yet eating healthily and buying the right products doesn’t end with merely choosing healthy food.
In a capitalist society, you vote with what you buy. (Give that one a thought..)
You’re not only buying the finished product, you’re also agreeing to the process of how it’s been made.
The workers or children who’re putting in the labor, the use of chemicals or the choice of natural fertilizers, if the product is local or if it has to fly in from far away, if Mother Earth is exploited or cared for, if animals are respected during the process or being treated as things, undergoing enormous emotional and physical pain..
I know this sounds like a lot to take into account and we can’t be saints with everything we buy, but it’s our duty as people with a sense of consciousness to lead the way.
It might take some time to figure out which products are legitimate and which one carry a load of ‘bad karma’ along, but doesn’t it always feel good to take responsibility for your life? Buying products that have caused the least amount of suffering? Making careful decisions always brings us closer to ourselves instead of making us feel estranged from Who We Really Are.
Overall, buying organic food and skin products that are mostly natural (don’t put on your skin what you wouldn’t put in your mouth;) are the cleanest way to go.
‘Organic’ and ‘natural’ are, after all, reminders of the way things were before we started messing with food, condoned abusing animals and adding chemical processes to our meals.
Before consuming your food, take a moment to think of all the little processes it’s been through to get to your plate. The labor, the love, the hours of ripening in the sun, the water it used to grow.
the food on your plate,
the process it’s been through,
the energy it will
for you are so lucky to be able
to choose so widely.
