47. Eat low on the food chain(g).

Changing the way we eat can feel like ripping away our personality. “What would (important person in my life) think of me and who would I be if I started eating berries for breakfast instead of lobster souffle? The people I love (and who love me back) know me for my breakfast-eating lobster souffle mornings!” 

If we are what we eat, then being low (after eating low) will help us “look-up” to a new persona. To make this chain(g) mesh ‘well-ish’ with our new skin, it’s recommended to keep the new fruit-focused alter ego on the down-low. Do not tell anyone about being ‘berry-breakfast’ for several weeks. This will help simplify (and pun-ify) the low-hanging fruit approach to being our berry-best each morning.  

To help you “Eat Low on the food chain(g)" here’s a simple 2-step process.

  1. Think highly of lowly fruit, berries and salty veggies
  2. Mange-mange

Your Future You will be relying on you to eat into this chain(g). In fact, your Future You sent us a message just the other day about the current day local DC area company called Eat the Change who is taking the ‘low on the food chain’ items to a higher level. We were told that with enough momentum, they will build the ‘fast-food chain’ for the ‘low on food chain’, chain. Eat the Chain(g). 

P.S. - It’s been reported that Corporate Housing companies help people ‘Eat low on the food chain’ by letting people choose what they want to eat.  While we don’t necessarily provide food (hey, did you know we provide full-sized kitchens?), we do believe in providing our guests with choices for living (and thusly eating) to align their life with whatever generates their aliveness. Living high on low-chain foods, it’s the chain(g) we can eat (and still indulge in Lobster Souffle).

Eating low on the food chain refers to eating fruits, vegetables, beans, and grains. Essentially, vegan. Because meat and dairy are the main cause of greenhouse gas emissions—both account for 14.5 percent of the total—eating lower on the food chain, meaning cutting out meat and dairy for just one day, can actually reduce your carbon footprint by as much as eight pounds.
