IS YOUR FOOD ALIVE OR DEAD?

Shelf life is something that amazes me about food.

Produce has a short life span when in the market or in our refrigerator, but then there are the foods that come in cans and boxes that can last a short life time!

Amazing.

Now, I am not a food specialist, but using some common sense I ask myself, "Which is healthiest and which provides the most nutrient density?"

I came up with this answer: The shorter the shelf life, the healthier the food.

This is what I believe!

Even though we can now consumer our fruits and vegetables in powders and tablets, I still put food with a short shelf life in the first position!

Makes sense right?

Even the same is true with fish, poultry, and meat as opposed to a canned meat product.

Freshness is key when it comes to your food. I know this sounds like a very basic rant, but how many foods, spices, seasonings, marinades, and other canned/ boxed products do you consume over the course of the day?

I call this negative nutrition.

Why?

Because instead of fueling yourself with a food that is perishable due to the higher nutrient content and values, you are subbing it out in favor of something with shelf life, or a "Dead" food.

Give todays video a look and see what I mean!
