Please take the time to watch the documentary “SUSTAINABLE” on Netflix (see link to trailer below)! It is well done and so beautiful and inspiring!
I was moved to tears by the farmers, chefs, and bakers interviewed in the film and the selfless work they are doing. They are true examples of spirit!
They’re working every single day to make our world better but don’t crave attention or the spotlight for what they do.
They are visionaries who strive to protect the planet we depend on to live, trying to leave it better for future generations through organic, sustainable farming, while making sure people have access to healthy, nutrient-dense food not only today but also thousands of years from now.
In the Obstructions section of THE SPIRIT FACTOR, the first obstruction I discuss is Our Health and Food because of the significance they play in our ability to create the lives we want and live to our full potential.
Our health truly depends on what we eat, and if we lose our health, we lose our freedom … and sometimes even our lives. We also destroy the health of our planet through factory farming and agriculture that depletes and poisons the earth.
Unfortunately, much of the “food” sold in grocery stores in the United States is highly processed and filled with fat, salt, sugar, and preservatives.
This “food” lacks nutritional value and is the culprit in many preventable diseases that the majority of our population now suffers and dies from.
We are literally malnourished and starving to death from this nutrient-void food even though so many people are obese.
Our bodies continue to tell us that they’re struggling, but it’s hard to break free from these foods that are so aggressively marketed to us and intentionally made with addictive ingredients.
In a way, I think many of us have forgotten what real food looks and tastes like. But this documentary reminds us.
I have to tell you, my insides ached when I watched the love that the farmers put into their fields, the chefs put into their food, and the bread baker put into his handmade breads.
My body and spirit are STARVING for this kind of real food that is made with such love, and I plan on looking for ways to support those who grow, cook, and bake it.
Maybe if enough of us do this, we can not only create healthier lives but also a healthier world for all of us!
