If you think that the food you eat only offers you physical, nutritional benefits, you've got it all wrong. Believe it or not, what you put on your plate can also have a huge impact on your emotional and spiritual well-being! Nutritionists call this “the energetic power of food”.
Just think of how many times you've arrived home after a long, stressful day and work and felt comforted by a warm, hearty soup. Or how you often reach for a nutrient-dense green juice for a quick pick-me-up when you're experiencing an afternoon slump. These are both examples of the energetic power of food.
Different foods have different energies and vibrations
When it comes to your diet, you may wonder things like, “Where can I get high-quality dairy and meat?” or, “Should I only be eating organic produce?”
While these questions concerning food quality are good ones, they’re only the tip of the iceberg. There are bigger questions to this equation – for example, “What’s my personal definition of healthy food?” To answer this question, you need to observe carefully and consciously.
The theory of the energetic power of food explains that different foods have different energies and vibrations. It just takes attention and thoughtfulness to recognise this connection. A great starting place is to look at the food it its natural state. Let’s use the example of carrots...
Carrots grow into the ground and therefore boost your body’s energy field with feelings of stability, balance and calm – have you noticed? This is why when you’re feeling stressed or anxious, you usually crave root vegetables like carrots, sweet potatoes and turnips.
Another great is example is that of legumes, which you can store for long periods of time in their dried form. They also impart a relaxed, balanced energetic quality when you eat them.
These examples prove how incorporating the concept of food energetics into your daily life and eating habits can improve your overall health and vitality!

Five ways to use the energetic power of food to balance your body and mind
#1: Grow your own fruits and vegetables
Connecting where your food comes from is vital! If you have a garden at home, grow your own fruits and vegetables. If you don’t, buy your produce from your local farmers market so you can see the food you eat in the ground to help you connect with it – this may sound crazy, but it’s not!
#2: Always choose the best quality
You should always choose the best quality foods that you can, no matter what you eat – whether it’s fruits, vegetables, meats, fish or whole grains. Opt for organic, natural, unprocessed biodynamic foods.
#3: Eat a wide variety of foods every day
Mixing up your daily eating plan will keep things exciting and your body satisfied. Eat a variety of fruits, vegetables, healthy fats, proteins and oils every day.
#4: Ensure you eat natural, traditional foods
It’s important that you eat foods that are in their natural state rather than processed, food-like “substitute foods” AKA anything with a label.
#5: Listen to your body
Pay attention to how your body feels after experimenting with a variety of different foods. Jot down your thoughts, feelings and sensations in a food journal. This will help you understand which foods do and don’t work for your body.
