what is protein?
Protein gives your body the structure and raw materials to anchor itself to the earth.
Your body needs protein for growth, repair, & maintenance of body tissues — muscles, blood, bones & hormones, including immune system function, energy production when blood sugar is low, metabolic & digestive enzymes, and hair, skin, nails, collagen, & elastin production.
Proteins are made up of individual building blocks called amino acids. These nutrients can be classified into three main categories: essential, nonessential and conditional amino acids. Nine of them are called essential because they can't be made by the human body and must be obtained from food.
A “complete protein” from sources like organic eggs and dairy products, fish, beef, and poultry contain all 9 essential amino acids.
When choosing animal meat, choose pastured or wild animals. Not only are they much leaner than their conventional counterpart but they are also higher in key nutrients, including antioxidants, vitamins (A, D & K2), and a beneficial fat called conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) that's been tied to improved immunity and anti-inflammation benefits. Plus, these animals are sustainably fed and in healthy ecological conditions.
Choose grass fed beef, organic, free-range poultry, pork, pastured dairy like cottage cheese, ricotta cheese, ghee, yogurt and kefir, undenatured whey protein powder.
Choose free-range, organically grown animals as the inherent energy of the animal combines with the vibration of the quality of the animal’s life. These animals are good at staying in the moment and living according to their instinctual selves. As we gratefully eat animal products, their energy is transferred into us and we feel more nourished and grounded.
Seafood is best when it is wild-caught, cold-water and oily fish like cod, halibut, herring, mackerel, wild salmon, sardines, and anchovies.
Farmed seafood on the other hand typically contains hormones, heavy metals, and toxins. The essential fatty acid ratios also change in farmed seafood then in wild seafood.
Food grown organically and sustainably will have a harmonizing effect on our energy because there were thoughtful and respectful ways that were brought in the cultivation of the food.
