Real Food

Real food. What does it really mean?

There is no official definition for the term, but there is a general consensus for what it means.

“Real food is wholesome and nourishing. It is simple, unprocessed, whole food. Real food is pure and unadulterated, sustained yet unchanged by man.” From Keeper of the Home

“In the simplest explanation, traditional foods focused on four basic principles: 1) avoidance of modern, refined foods; 2) celebration of unrefined, whole and natural foods; 3) respecting the importance of nutrient-density in our food and 4) preparing and eating foods in the same manner that nourished our ancestors and kept them well. In essence, if your great-great-great-great-great-great grandmother wouldn’t recognize it, don’t put it in your mouth.” From Nourished Kitchen

Wholesome and Nourishing.

Our bodies require nutrients to function and must be replenished with wholesome food for optimal performance and health. A nourishing meal will leave us feeling satisfied and should contain vitamins, minerals and fiber.

Much processed food can certainly keep us alive and free from hunger, but real, wholesome food will also keep our bodies in a healthier state, able to withstand the ravages of disease and exposure to toxins.

Pure and Unadulterated, Unchanged by Man.

In an ideal world, real food is grown in ideal plant conditions, free from pesticides and other chemicals. Animals are raised without hormones or antibiotics and are free to roam and eat what they were created to eat.
