Hello there, champion of true wellness...

It’s critical to understand that everything you put into your stomach – every sip, every morsel – affects the chemical universe inside your body. This triggers a chain reaction. Your body’s internal reaction to what you consume determines how you feel physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. In other words, what you eat and drink affects your experience of life.

It's a fact: Your body’s efficiency is largely determined by what you put into it. You can only be healthy if you eat healthily. It's essential to know what food you should eat, when you should eat it, and why you should eat it. Ignorance is no excuse for not obeying the law: The Natural Law, that is! You can get the death penalty for not eating properly. (It’s that serious!) You’ll eventually pay a price for poor eating. Disregard for your body results in sickness, pain and premature death. 

Break the habit of unhealthy eating. If you’re not already eating a healthy diet, you’ve got to change your ways. The right way to go is the natural way. Eating natural foods is the only way to enjoy radiant health and vitality every day for the rest of your life.

If you're on a healing or wellness journey, then you've probably read a few health books. They  usually go on and on about diet, don’t they? It’s actually mind-boggling how complex they make eating. Fortunately, Henry Jones makes it really easy for you to understand. He says:

“If it looks like man made it, don’t eat it. If it looks like Mother Nature made it, do eat it.”

A sure giveaway is the packaging. As a rule of thumb, if it comes in cardboard, plastic, polystyrene, or a can – don’t eat it. If it comes in a peel, skin, or shell – eat it. It’s that simple!

Here's another thing...

Change How You Think About Food.

Try to move away from the concept of breakfast, lunch, and supper. Your pre-conceived ideas of what to eat at these mealtimes are deeply ingrained in your mind. Rather think in terms of morning, afternoon, and evening meals, and try something new.

  • In the mornings: Make a big bowl of delicious fruit salad (eat as much as you like).

  • In the afternoon: Make a big scrumptious salad (dress with lemon juice, fruit juice, honey, olive oil, or a blend).

  • In the evening: Make a big bowl of tasty vegetables (preferably raw, steamed, roasted, or stir-fried). Yummy!

Moderation. Variety. Simplicity.

Make this your mantra for your diet. Repeat it over, and over, and over again. Then live by it.

The True Power Of Conscious Eating.

Conscious eating means thinking about what you put in your body. Henry Jones encourages us to meditate with our food. He recommends we pay attention to the true purpose of every morsel we ingest because they enter a fragile biological and chemical universe in our bodies.  

These tips will help you to eat mindfully on your healing or wellness journey:

  • Eat slowly, without any distractions.
  • Notice the colors, smells, textures, and tastes of each mouthful.
  • Appreciate the origin of your food and be grateful for it.
  • Say grace or bless your food.
  • Become aware of the effects of food on how you feel— things like feeling bloated after a meal, getting sluggish and tired, becoming flatulent, or experiencing headaches. These are all signs that something you’re eating isn’t working for you.
  • Eat only until full.
  • Pay attention to your body’s hunger cues. Learn to tell the difference between real hunger and other triggers for eating (like boredom).

Ask yourself these questions:

  • Mind: Am I truly tasting each mouthful or am I ‘zoned out’ while eating?

  • Body: How does my body feel before and after I eat? Is my stomach grumbling? Do I feel full? Am I bloated?

  • Feelings: How do I feel about the food I’m eating? Guilty? Pleasure? Regret?

  • Thoughts: What kind of thoughts does this food bring to mind? Fears, beliefs, memories, etc.

It's also a good idea to create an intentional eating space. Avoid scoffing down your meals on the couch in front of the television, or at your work desk. Rather, find a comfortable place where you won't be interrupted or distracted, such as the dining room table or in the garden, and enjoy your meals there.

Conscious eating calms you down, makes you enjoy your meals more, and connects you to your true-self. It's a wonderful practice. You should definitely develop this habit.

Culinary Tips From Henry Jones.


  • Eat five, small meals each day. (Three meals and two veggie or fruit juices.)
  • Plan your meals in advance.
  • Don't eat meat. Beside the ethical reasons, meat has no fibre in it and it slows your system down.
  • Only eat natural, live, fresh foods – preferably raw fruit, It’s also okay to eat brown rice, grains, sprouts, legumes and nuts.
  • Add seeds and nuts to all of your meals. (The natural oils are essential).
  • Take two extra minutes to present each plate of food, so that it looks neat, attractive, creative and appetizing.
  • Make each plate of food colorful. (Mix green, brown, yellow, white and red foodstuffs).
  • Chew your food into a fine paste (22 times-plus). Only put the next mouthful into your mouth when you have swallowed.
  • Whenever possible, eat with your fingers. (This connects you to your food. Each mouthful is more manageable. Plus, your food will taste better. The feel of food in your fingers causes enzyme-rich saliva to build in your mouth. These enzymes break your food down, so your body has more energy.)
  • Don’t stuff yourself (but always eat enough to feel full).
  • Only drink water and herbal teas, as well as vegetable and fruit juice (if liquidized by you or a  trusted source).

Experience The True Benefits Yourself.

In summation, follow a whole-foods, plant-based diet. If you want to be your true-self, heal your body, and enjoy radiant health and vitality every day for the rest of your life, then you must be in harmony with Mother Nature. You can't be your true-self and be okay with violating the natural laws. Neither can you hope Mother Nature will heal you if you consume man-made food substitutes.

So, give up man-made food. Only eat food that Mother Nature made for you. Do this, and you’ll start to feel better within a few days. Seriously!  When you feed your body natural food your internal system starts to function optimally. It will be more regular, you’ll feel lighter, you’ll sleep better, and you’ll lose a few pounds too. And that’s just for starters!

On a biological level, millions of functions will perform better because they'll have the natural energy they need to work for you as Mother Nature intended them to do so. You'll be amazed at how great you feel on a whole-foods, plant-based diet.

Try it on this Challenge. Put nature on your plate, and prove it to yourself.
