One of the interesting aspects about my work is the people who call me each day and the conversations we have. Among those today was a call from Sherry Strong . Sherry is a food philosopher and nutrition strategist. She’s also big into drinking healthy water as part of a sound nutrition strategy. She called to tell me that she’d been on my website and resonates with what she referred to as ‘the wisdom of my philosophy’ about what constitutes healthy drinking water.
What followed was, for me, a fascinating conversation about eating ‘naturally’, a concept she’s developed that suggests that natural ecosystems provide sources of food in abundance levels appropriate to the levels we ought to be consuming. Lest I mix up her message I invite you to learn more about her by watching her video on what she calls:
Frankly, I’d not given this concept any thought in the past and find it to be a refreshing and valid perspective. My background in ecology has led me to know that natural ecosystems provide valuable models for successful survival strategies for life here on earth. If we humans had the wisdom to learn from and mimic natural systems, rather than trying to modify and improve them, our chances for long term survival would increase.
I’ve just learned of Sherry’s eating concept today but intend to learn more. She also tells me that she is launching a training program to teach the concept to consultants who will then take the message to the public.
