SUN TEMPLE FOOD
Recipes for a healthier you.
Someone once said that if you can’t pronounce the ingredients list on a food product, and have no idea what they actually are—don’t eat it!
The Sun Temple Food philosophy is actually quite simple. The closer to the way God made our food and the less tampered with by human hands, the better it is for us. In other words, less processing is more healthful! I don’t bang a drum for any particular way of eating, as I believe extremes of anything are not usually good. But I have been an insulin controlled diabetic for 20 years and I am fit and healthy, with clear eyes and skin and lots of energy.
Eating the Sun Temple Food way is not a restrictive diet. Quite the opposite. So let’s eat fresh! These recipes are simple and made with island sourced ingredients.
I had a chat with a dramatic looking rasta recently.
He turned out to be very well travelled and knowledgeable about natural remedies and this is what he said: “When we eat food which has been imported from afar, we are eating the illnesses from that country.” I’m not sure I would go that far, but he is in fact a proponent for trying to be a “locavore.” That is, eat what is being grown or produced where you live—and not processed. We have so many amazing food products well known for their health-giving properties, like turmeric (chi chi ma in St. Lucia), cocoa and coconut.
But that’s for another time…..
