“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” ~ Hippocrates

We want to be healthy. We want to eat better. Don’t we?

“Food, sustenance, the staff of life. This is the stuff that keeps us alive. What kind of relationship do we have with it? Where is it coming from, and what did it take to bring it to us? Do we recognize food for the medicine that it can be and pay attention to what we’re putting in our bodies so that we can thrive, or do we ignore the ramifications of our industrialized food system and continue to pollute both our internal and external ecosystems?” ~ Now Share Love/S.O.U.L. “Invitation to Action” short film

Kip and Evan dig into the importance of food in our lives in this installment of S.O.U.L. On Air, asking us to stop for a moment and think about what we are eating, how we are eating it, and what it takes to produce and deliver our food. Without sustenance, we cannot survive. Unfortunately, oftentimes, with our current means of feeding ourselves, the sustenance itself can be the cause of our illness and even death. Many of us in the West have been raised into a world where we eat what is processed for and then marketed to us, not necessarily what is healthy and what nature provided for us. Only now are we beginning to wonder if that was done with our best interests or the best interests of the planet at heart…

However, Kip and Evan are also not trying to sound like they are health gurus, as they, like most of us, are just doing their best to bring awareness to their own eating practices. That is why they are going public with the proclamation that what they do to feed themselves is likely unsustainable, and certainly not the most nourishing and or in harmony with both their internal and external ecosystems. You could say they are, “Evolving out loud,” by sharing with others what they are learning, as well as their personal challenges, to improving their diet and by extension their health.
“Don’t eat anything your great-great grandmother wouldn’t recognize as food. There are a great many food-like items in the supermarket your ancestors wouldn’t recognize as food.. stay away from these”  ~ Michael Pollan
