What is high vibrational cooking and which foods can you eat when you follow this dietary lifestyle?
Every so often a new fad comes along, and though high vibrational cooking is hardly a new-new trend, it’s still as contentious as ever. Here’s everything you need to know to make up your mind about the high-energy, life-force-giving cooking method so many swear by.
What is high vibrational cooking?
The concept of high vibrational cooking is made up of three components: the source, the quality of one’s produce (the combination of the two will result in foods that are high vibrational in their nature), and the intention when cooking said produce, says the founder of the Starseed Kitchen: High Vibration Foods, Whitney Aronoff, a holistic chef and medical intuitive based in Laguna Beach, California.
Foods, therefore, need to be responsibly sourced, unprocessed and steering clear of genetically modified foods, with no refined sugars and oils altering their makeup.
To ensure the meals you’re preparing stick to a high vibrational lifestyle, you need to be mindful of the energy you’re exuding when cooking as well. Prepare your food thoughtfully, taking care when you do so.
Gourmand Award-winning author and dedicated intuitive health and wellness coach Maria Benardis provides a good understanding of high vibrational cooking.
She explains, rooting her argument in ancient Greek philosophy: “We are all made of energy and we therefore require the consumption of energy in the form of food, air and water for sustenance and good health.”
When you eat highly nutritious, energetic foods, such as fresh organic fruits and vegetables off the tree, you’ll automatically feel a lot better than having a cheeseburger, for example.
An apple a day keeps the doctor away, sure, because it’s filled with nutrients. Having McDonald’s for breakfast, lunch and supper will undoubtedly have the adverse effect – we know this.
On the latter, Maria explains: “Food that is prepared by loving hands adds to the good energy of the dish. Prepare food slowly, lovingly and peacefully. But, above all, the Greeks show gratitude by giving thanks to God for his guidance and for the wonderful food they are about to enjoy. Gratitude, truth and love have the highest energy vibrations.”
