I want people to think about food in a different way. Fruits, veggies, seeds, nuts, herbs…these grow outside in nature. This is what we should be eating. Food doesn’t grow in a bag or a box. It doesn’t come from a factory.
God gave us these amazing bodies and He also gave us amazing food. You see the birds and the animals outside everyday. Do the birds worry about what they will eat? How do they know what to eat? God feeds them. God feeds us in the same way. We have all been provided for.
Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.” – Genesis 1:29
So why all the confusion about food? Why are there thousands of blogs dedicated to food? Why all the diets, hoopla, fads, trends and so forth? If a bird intuitively knows what to eat, why are WE so confused?
I watched an inspiring video the other day. In it, Paul Risse, founder of Cleanse America, said, “You can take every book in this room on nutrition, you can take every doctor in the world on nutrition, you can take anybody’s opinion- including my own- on nutrition, but it all pales in comparison to the intuitive wisdom that God gave you on understanding what is right or wrong in leading to health (and that can refer to mentally, emotionally, spiritually, any of those things) but the bodies that we are given are such a blessing from God, and if we were to truly develop an intuition on what and how to eat, there would never be a question left in the world.”
That completely resonated with me and inspired me. I’ve always felt that if people just ate real food, the way it was provided to us, there wouldn’t be any confusion. I often wonder why it is so hard for us to accept that fruits and veggies are the answer. They are right in front of us…growing, season after season. They are simple, healthy, delicious and designed by God for our bodies.
I read a quote once that said, “You put a baby in a crib with an apple and a rabbit. If it eats the rabbit and plays with the apple, I’ll buy you a new car.” That always makes me laugh, because it’s true. If we could peel back the external layers of messaging that we have all been surrounded by and subjected to…if we could get rid of all of the external information, media, society-diet-messaging, and be still, hear our own voice and our own intuition, what would we choose to eat to nourish ourselves?
That’s where the idea for a Creation Bowl came from. It’s really just a cool way of saying, let me see your bowl of raw goodness! Let me see you make something with the food that God has given us! Let me see you eat from creation.
Your bowl can be as simple or as creative as you like. It could be a bowl of carrots. It could be a fruit salad. It could be raw zucchini noodles topped with mushrooms, olives, tomatoes and herbs. It could be a smoothie in a bowl topped with hemp seeds and chopped fruit. It can be any raw combination that your intuition tells you to put together.
It could look like these:

Let’s get back to basics. Let’s get back to creation. Let’s get back to real food, the way God made it.
