Whole-food nutrition is based on natural, seasonally grown foods such as beans, grains, most vegetables, and greens. It has a close relationship with nature as it teaches us how to select foods that respond to the body’s natural rhythm thus restoring health and bringing about deep physical and emotional healing.
The practice of whole-food nutrition follows an ancient tradition that divides life into five seasons: summer, late summer, autumn, winter, and spring. Each season has many aspects; among them is a symbolic color, a representative element such as wood, earth or metal, specific tastes and foods that are recommended for that season, the organs that are best supported by those foods, and appropriate cooking methods for that time of year. By following this tradition, we not only become tuned into our own bodies but also sensitized to the healing properties of nature.
