first love, then food

July 14, 2009

I’ve been late in telling you about the Dr. Brian Clement event I went to at the end of June.  As many of you know, Dr. Clement and his wife Anna Maria run the Hippocrates Health Institute in Florida, a living-foods destination.

It was the first time I had heard the Clements speak.  Naturally, they had a lot to say about the ideal growing, procurement and preparation of food, but what stood out for me most was not about the food at all.

Dr. Clement spent a great deal of time talking about the emotional and spiritual side of eating, something I’ve thought about a lot but had not articulated in the way he did.  Simply, he said that food is a way to realize self-respect.  Feeding ourselves high-vibrational, pure foods is an act of self-love.  And self-love is the pre-requisite for love of others, which is our purpose on this planet. “We are here to give 100% of ourselves with love and compassion,” he said, “Nutrition is only the fuel.”
