3 Food Philosophies
To begin, a philosophy is not a diet. A diet tells you what to do. Our goal is to create a live-it, a program that assists with your dietary needs while overall still giving you room to be flexible, experiment, and play.
The 3 philosophies detailed below are the main things I keep in mind throughout the day. They help me to eat in an environmentally conscious way while at the same time keeping me on top of my peak, performance that is, which is a win-win in my book.
My first philosophy introduces the idea of a food filter.

Philosophy 1: Eat a Tree A Day
By learning the core principle of any philosophy you can adapt your own unique program based on it. To do this here, explore each part of the tree. Find a few things in each category that you like, and start eating! This list is by no means exhausted. Once you start looking at your food in this way, you'll undoubtedly find new foods to enjoy. How many edible roots are there? Etc. But not only that, this philosophy acts as a food filter:
Because if it's not a root, seed, fruit, etc. you don't eat it.
Philosophy 2: Eat the Rainbow
Ultimately, health & wellness is a personal responsibility. Take time to cultivate your lifestyle and habits around what makes you feel good, then live in that goodness fully. From a place of empowerment, miracles can happen. Miracles like rainbows, fruition, and fire.
Besides eating a Tree A Day, I also strive to eat a Rainbow A Day. Take a look at your daily intake. Are you favoring a color? Or missing one altogether? Pigments ARE nutrition.
Philosophy 3: Nutrition is like a Fire
Whatever your present condition is in life, I feel confident that it can be greatly improved upon with the integration of these 3 Food Philosophies.
