Here is something that I came across when I became Macrobiotic in 1970/71, and it is just taken as read now. It was a real struggle to get people to believe this in the 70s though but it is still a Truth today."You are what you Eat". Therefore you should think about where the food you are eating has come from. All food was at some point "Alive" in one way or another, so give thanks to it for being sacrificed so that you may continue to live. Try to eat food that still has some life left in it. I personally think eating Organic is best for You as well as The Earth, but if the organic food has been on the shelf for so long that it has lost all it's Life Force then this may no longer be the case.
