How does Solar nutrition work?

This day in age there are thousands of diets to follow. When you think about how many humans are on earth, and the intermingling that has led to millions of vastly different genetic combinations, it makes sense that different diets work for different bodies. We may all be the same kind of machine, but we each have different mechanics – what is good for one human body, may be detrimental to another.

For this reason, the best eating habits are ones dictated by your own body. But in order to do that, you have to be connected; out of your head and tuned-in to your gut. Sadly, most of us are not. We have become incredibly disconnected and bogged down by information flooding in from all over.

 

Solar nutrition takes us back to the root of things. Or rather: the roots, trunks, leaves, seeds and fruit of things.

 

What is solar nutrition?

Solar nutrition is the notion that food should be eaten based on the time of day that food source receives energy from the sun while it is part of a plant.

Solar nutrition is a plant-based diet. You’ve heard it before, and you’ll hear it again: Your diet should consist mostly of plants (for most of us anyway). Keep arguing against that if you want, you’re only hurting yourself🤷🏽‍♀️

Modern agriculture has made it so that we can grow food in all sorts of odd ways – from greenhouses to hydroponics with artificial light. Solar nutrition follows the cycle of how plants grow without human intervention.

What makes solar nutrition work?

The premise is that our bodies work on a circadian rhythm and are better equipped to digest foods at different times of the day. For example, your stomach may produce an enzyme that better metabolizes fructose in the morning, so eating a high sugar fruit like a banana or mango in the early morning feels better because your body is ready for it.

If you’ve ever wondered why eating a specific food sometimes feels fine and other times causes you discomfort – the principle of solar nutrition may be a good explanation.
