Energy Efficiency for Body and Planet

Whether you’re heating your home or moving your body, green power
generation is where it’s at. The idea in each case: Using the most efficient,
cleanest-burning fuel possible.

By Jessica Ridenour

October 2007

Back in his day, legendary smartypants Leonardo da Vinci filled notebook after notebook comparing the microcosm of the body to the macrocosm of the planet. As da Vinci, ever the Renaissance man, studied anatomy, he also studied geology, noting the striking similarities in the ways both body and earth functioned, such as how arteries convey blood the same way rivers transport water. Da Vinci understood that the body and the planet are inextricably connected in countless ways.

Half a millennia later, when we, as humans, seem to be more enamored with our modern convenience culture than our connection with nature, da Vinci’s analogy takes on new urgency. Look around and you can’t help but notice that the environment is suffering—natural resources depleted, water and soil contaminated, and air, in some cities, gray with particulates. If the human body is a microcosm of the planet, and the planet is showing signs of stress, then what’s going on with our bodies? While scientific advances allow us to fight once-fatal diseases like smallpox, rates of obesity and diabetes are higher than ever. What gives?

Energetic Eating

Jeanne Peters has worked for over 25 years to connect her clients with that feeling of aliveness that only fresh food from the earth can provide. At Nourishing Wellness ( www.nourishingwellness.com ), the medical center she founded with her husband, Allen Peters, MD, she preaches the gospel of healthy eating habits. Here are a few of the foods they recommend for optimum health and energy efficiency (organically sourced whenever possible):

∗Leafy greens contain vitamins A, C and E (all powerful antioxidants), B vitamins, vitamin K, fiber and minerals (calcium, iron, potassium and magnesium). They are known to combat cancer, heart disease and osteoporosis.

∗Cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage and kale are off the charts for vitamins A, C and K, and are also high in folate, fiber and phytonutrients. These crunchy veggies protect against cancer and have detoxifying properties.

∗Whole grains, such as brown rice, barley, whole wheat and oats, are loaded with minerals and fiber. Whole, unprocessed grains protect cardiovascular health and provide the fuel we need to function.

∗Legumes are rich in fiber and antioxidants and in protein, which is necessary to build and repair tissue. They’re great for cardiovascular health and they help keep cancer at bay.

∗Berries are loaded with antioxidants, such as vitamins C and E, and phenols, as well as fiber. These richly colored fruits protect against cancer, macular degeneration, arthritis and cognitive decline.

∗Citrus fruits are brimming with antioxidants, fiber, potassium and folate, and are ...
