The best foods to consume when you are energy sensitive…and even if you aren’t!
We all know that some foods are healthier for our bodies and some aren’t. We’ve been taught for years that we should avoid consuming too much junk foods. They just aren’t so great for our bodies. And we have also been taught that we should consume more fresh foods, such as fruits and vegetables. They are good for us. But food is energy and passes that energy onto us. And every food has it’s own energy level.
As someone who is energy sensitive, this idea was even more important for me. Food holds energy and eating too many of the wrong foods can lead to energy depletion and sickness. We are all energetic beings, whether we are sensitive to the energy of others or not. And so every person can be impacted negatively by low energy foods and get healthier with the help of higher energy foods.
So what are the best foods to consume when you’re energy sensitive? Which foods are energetically higher? Whole, fresh foods are best! This includes fresh produce (organic is best), grass fed and pasture raised meats, eggs from free range chickens, hormone and antibiotic free dairy, organic grains and legumes and high quality fats. When it comes to protecting energy levels, organic is always best. Organic foods are free from synthetic pesticides, herbicides and fungicides which could impact energy levels.
These foods are beneficial because they are found in their most natural state. The produce has gotten plenty of sunshine and has absorbed nutrients from the soil in which is was grown. The meats were all raised humanely without drugs and hormones. Because of this, these foods have a higher energetic footprint and are more beneficial.
What you should limit or avoid
It should come as no surprise that junk food is definitely on this list. But the list is even more expansive then just candy and chips!
Industrial processed foods are typically stripped of most of their nutrient goodness. In fact, many companies often add synthetic vitamins and minerals to boost the nutrition levels. Unfortunately, these synthetic vitamins are not processed and used by the body the same way that nature created nutrients are.
And to make matters worse, often these same foods are full of synthetic additives…preservatives, artificial flavors and colorings and more that can, in fact deplete energy levels. Empaths and highly sensitive people are usually sensitive to chemicals. So foods that are loaded with them can be draining for energy sensitives and are best to be limited and avoided when possible.
This also includes fast foods, sit down restaurant foods and convenience foods from places like your local grocery store deli as these are usually loaded with additives and preservatives that can be harmful to your energy.
If you are currently relying on a lot of packaged and processed foods in your diet, you will need to think about beginning to add in more whole foods. It does not have to be a daunting process. Making changes a little bit at a time can make it much easier for you….and your family!
