Movie Night! Thanks to Fit Bodies CrossFit and Station 220 for hosting Hungry for Change. A wonderful meal, an amazing film, and four pages of notes later (front and back!), I’d love to blog like crazy. But since I learned what an important part sleep plays in health most of it will wait until tomorrow.
I will leave you with one of my biggest take-aways.
I will ask you to think about visiting a zoo. My favorite part is usually the monkeys. If you think about the animals in the zoo, you can imagine them in their habitats–surrounded in the zoo by a native environment. Think about feeding time. What do they eat? A native diet to their species, of course. The types of food/s and drink/s that they would normally have if they lived in the natural environment and not in a zoo.
So the next part is a bit harder to imagine. But, imagine visiting humans just like yourself in a zoo. What would we be eating and drinking? What is the native diet for our species? What would we be eating in our natural environment, if we weren’t in a zoo?
This question made me pause and think. Deeply. I’m not sure what the answer is, though there are many things I’m sure it isn’t. Twinkies come to mind. But there is something about having to think about myself in a native habitat (what might that look like), eating and drinking a native diet (what would that consist of) is so simple its’ powerful.
Much more tomorrow. After a very healthy sleep.
