“Our ancestors were eating generally higher quality food. They had less options but they were eating locally.” Evan Rilling is a health-conscious chef and a food shaman. His mission is to help clients to connect more to themselves by creating a healthier relationship with the food they consume daily. He has almost 20 years of chef experience, has worked as the personal chef to actor, Will Smith, designed menus for retreat centers around the world, and worked for major health brands.
“You can learn to understand your own body in order to find out the kind of food that works best for you.”
We all are familiar with those moments in life, in which we don’t allow ourselves to eat healthy food without time pressure but rather with joy and pleasure. Our brain knows about proper meals. It knows “we are what we consume”, but our limiting beliefs cause us to believe differently.
People have different perceptions on what’s healthy for them. But there is no general health nutrition plan that would be applicable for each of us. We all have different bodies, different ingredients within us and different ways to move. Evan’s recommendation is to recognize that our bodies are built differently and needs to be treated differently. What is healthy for you might not be healthy for another person, what food works best for you, might not work for another one. He said, you “just” have to be more knowledgable on what your body likes, digest the best and what feels the best after you have eaten. This means, do you feel tired after a dish, activated or energized? Self-responsibility is his key for a proper health.
“Just because certain food is said to be good for you, doesn’t necessarily mean that it is good for you and your health system.”
