Fly like a bird and soar into a healthy life
The sun was setting and above me I could see starlings, sea gulls and black birds all soaring, dancing and glistening in the sun. How healthy these birds are and how streamlined their bodies are. What can we learn from the birds to keep healthy in our own lives?
What can we learn from birds?
Those birds I saw flying above my head weren’t overweight, they weren’t ill or suffering from a disease. They were healthy, strong and their bodies were working exactly as they were intended to work.
So why are we all suffering from disease and obesity? Because we don’t eat food that is meant for our bodies.
Birds are at one with nature. They are part of the cycle of life, eating foods they find in a natural environment that keeps them healthy. Sometimes when you go into a nature reserve they tell you not to feed the birds as it makes them ill. Or some places have a list of foods you should never feed birds. And surprise surprise, these foods include coffee, alcohol, white bread, meat, and any junk food.

A lot of people believe that cats and dogs have started to get the same diseases as us humans as they are eating the same.
Can birds resist an unhealthy snack? No, they flock down and eat the white bread or the chips. So if birds can’t resist the junk food how are we supposed to? I admit it’s very hard, but I believe the key is in the way you look at food.
How to identify foods meant for healthy humans
Tell yourself that food for you is fresh whole food. Fruits and vegetables are your natural food. Anything in a packet with a list of ingredients, especially ingredients you don’t recognise as food is not food. It will often contain chemicals that will interfere with your body, throw it off balance and cause you numerous health problems and cravings.
If a food doesn’t need an ingredients list, such as a pack of tomatoes, potatoes or a bunch of bananas, then that is your natural food.

Have you ever looked closely at food advertising? The most enticing food always has some fresh fruit or vegetables in the food somewhere even if it’s not part of the meal. That is because our eye is naturally drawn to the wonderful bright colours of foods that are meant for us. There is a reason our eyes find them attractive. Unfortunately our taste buds have been warped by chemicals and foods stripped of their nutrients such as refined sugar. If you start eating food in it’s natural state your taste buds will return to normal and eventually you’ll be able to pick out the more subtle tastes of fresh food and you will actually start to crave them instead.
I really want to eat this way but…
Don’t worry, you don’t have to be a perfectionist about this. I don’t always make healthy choices but I do plan to eat healthily at every meal which does happen most of the time. You will feel so much better just by eating whole foods most of the time, and your diet will keep improving as you get more used to a more wholesome diet. I do find eating a lot of vegetables takes a very long time to chew which is why I drink so many Green Thickies as I don’t always have time to sit down and chew my way through a massive salad for an hour at lunch time. However you consume your fruit and veg is fine as long as you make them a priority in your diet.
How to avoid unhealthy food
So next time you plan your meals for the week or go shopping, don’t go down the packaged aisle at all. Don’t go down the chocolate or cakes sections. Plan a meal around a salad, soup, jacket potato, squash or fruit. Make sure at least half of your meals contain raw uncooked fruit or vegetables and watch your energy levels sky rocket.
Fly like a bird, eat whole natural foods that don’t come in packets and watch your health soar to the highest heights.

Get results like this...Hi Katherine,
I just wanted to tell you I completed the 7 day detox and I feel so great.
I have lost 6lbs, do not feel like I need more my morning coffee, the flushing of my facial skin from rosacea has dramatically reduced and I am so excited to wake up each morning and make a green thickie for breakfast!!
I am a stay at-home, homeschooling momma of 3 littles and at times so busy I would forget to feed myself!
I would go most of the day without eating and then snack on random things.
I gained 60 pounds the last 6 years during pregnancy.
I have lost 30lbs but recently plateaued and have felt so frustrated.
I’ve tried everything from paleo and keto to the point where I didn’t know what to eat or how much and felt like even eating fruit was bad for me which thankfully it’s not!
What a game changer for me. Thank you for sharing a simple but effective program.
I’m so excited to continue another week with this plan! Thankful Stephanie
