FEED YOUR STOMACH WITH FUELLED MEALS We are all made up of energy. It’s obvious. Though, as humans, we forget. Busy lives or chaotic drama can deter us from this knowledge.
To keep us fuelled all day, we need to keep topping up our body with food, water, sunlight, sleep, meditation, exercise and connection [ with self and community ]. The best way to understand this is by thinking you are a car. You fill the car up with petrol to take you to work, home, events, holidays, just to name a few.
The car burns the petrol and eventually, you’re back at the station filling up the tank.
Our bodies are much the same.
Now, think about our tank being our stomach and the petrol is energy. Our body takes us to the same places as where the car does though we need to fill up our tank more often.
It’s important to eat fuelled meals to top up the energy levels of our mind, body and spirit.
To start the day off on the right foot, eating a fuelled breakfast between 7am and 9am is where our energy [ chi ] fires up in our stomach. It’s the perfect time to gobble up a wholesome meal.
