As a vegan I am constantly trying to figure out ways of increasing the energy level of my diet. In addition to sourcing protein, calcium and B12, I find that I am much more sensitive than I used to be to the energy levels of the food I eat. I therefore have to find ways of eating food with a higher vibrational content. Not always easy to do, this task is extremely important for overall health. And with these few tips, anyone can start feeling the benefits of highly energetic food.
This may sound like an obscure concept, but the vibration of food is as scientific a concept as gravity. Although much less understood, the energy a food carries is an important factor in what one chooses to eat. Measured in a couple ways, the life force of food (prana in Vedic culture, chi in Chinese, mana in Hawaiian, and Lüng in Tibetan) can be quantified and visualized.
I was first shown how to quantify the life force of a vegetable on a spiritual farm in Fairfield, Iowa. Using a refractometer, I was shown how to measure the Brix count of a vegetable. The Brix count measures the sugar content of a solution and can determine the health, ripeness, and amount of minerals of a vegetable. Through the refractometer, these results can be visualized.
Using Biophotonics, we were able to see the physical energy level of a fruit by measuring photons. By counting photo-emissions and measuring electrical conductivity, one can actually visualize the energetic activity of a plant, fruit, or even piece of food in the form of light.
A leader in alternative organic farming technologies, Nicola Lampkin affirms that, “This light energy is thought to be stored in the DNA during photosynthesis and is transmitted continuously by the cell. It is thought that the higher the level of light energy a cell emits, the greater its vitality and the potential for the transfer of that energy to the individual which consumes it.” This means the energy transferred from plant to person is extremely important to the energy levels of the person.
So how do we increase our daily energetic intake through our food? Well the answer is found on many levels. The first level is buy organic.
Eating organic food is the best way to avoid low vibratory foods. This is because organic food has no artificial pesticides, fertilizers, or other chemical/genetic manipulations that would alter natural development. The best fruit is the toughest fruit, one that has endured a life of insects, disease, and nature, not one that has been shielded with harmful chemicals. This means dont stray from fruit with blemishes.
Another way to increase energy is by buying local. Eating local produce means getting fruit directly from the vine and into your body faster. As brix count, photo emissions, and other image-forming techniques have shown, the longer a fruit is off its vine, the less energy it carries. This means buy local or better yet, grow your own food.
Something I do to increase my food’s energy is buying live foods. This includes fermented foods, sprouts, and growing plants. Sprouts and other seedlings carry the most life force as they are creating massive amounts of energy (think of how fast babies grow).

Another great thing to do is sprout your food. Last night I sprouted my quinoa by soaking it for 30 minutes, draining, then letting it sit for 12 hours. Not only did this reduce cooking time, but it started their life cycle, increasing their energy. This can be done for all grains.
Lastly, on an entirely different level, infuse your food with intention. Before you eat, give thanks. And by this I mean really thank your food. Imagine its entire life and see its journey to become part of you. Its entire existence was created to support your life. Honor it. Infuse it with positive qualities of love, energy, life, whatever you want. And be sure to enjoy it! Savor every bite and eat slowly. This will create a greater vibration of the food your ingesting.
Using these techniques and this knowledge, eating live foods can be something readily attainable. This is not just for vegans, it is for everyone who eats and the last time I checked, that was a lot of people. We so often overlook the role food plays in our lives. We need to understand the importance it holds and its relationship with our body – all of our bodies: spiritual, vibrational, biophysical, and I am sure plenty more. So go out and eat the apples off of trees, plants in the ground and vegetables on the vine. And don’t forget to say thank you!
