the power of food
It is phenomenal here to note the rise in popularity of organic raw milk. In the space of a few years, we have gone from the cautious fear of this local food to an appreciation that is well deserved. The common message we get from customers is the recognition that this is indeed a real food, and it is impossible to go back to the ultra-processed replicas. In truth, this gives us room for hope that there is an innate wisdom we possess to recognise when a food is good for us. In so many ways raw milk is that beacon of recovery.
As the years have gone by though most of the population have been herded into the feedlot of ultra processed foodstuffs to the point that they no longer remember what real food is nor understand why it is important. We have distanced ourselves from where the food originates from and how to prepare it. Little by little we have eroded our ability to understand normal anymore. It affects all of us every day. The ability to access real food is challenging. It is a needle in a haystack at times!
On a positive note, though this innate wisdom is there, and I witness this wisdom coming to the fore particularly when a parent strives to help a sick child. That energy is powerful and latent. The answers are often right in front of us. Real food heals. We need to help each other to access and utilise. When we can harness this energy collectively the potential is endless.
