Eat Real Food




Fast-food culture has produced a population with widespread chronic illness and is a primary reason that health care costs are taking a devastating toll on society.


"The standard American diet -- in which 62 percent of calories come from processed foods, 25 percent from animal products and only 5 percent from fruits and vegetables -- is nothing less than a health travesty." 


Over the last year people have died of covid-19. The vast majority of them had pre-existing conditions, many of which are preventable.

One of the best things one can do for one's health is eat real food, and stay far, far away from fast and processed food.


"Do you have to be a strict vegetarian to enjoy the considerable health benefits of a vegetarian diet? No, you do not."


The food-like meals served at places like the golden arches and other joints, is literally deadly. The past year highlights this fact more than ever. 

It is hard to fight disease if you are medically compromised by the effects of modern consumer society.


"What's important is to eat a plant-strong diet, with a high percentage of your calories coming from whole foods such as fruits, vegetables and whole grains, and a low percentage coming from processed foods, sugars, unhealthy fats and animal products."

  2. Yes! Eating real food is fundamental to regaining and maintaining health. As people regain health they can begin to wean themselves off health-destroying medications also. Regaining health is simple, but not always easy. You need to be willing to cook!

    Only one generation ago, everyone cooked, busy or not. If you feel you are just too busy to cook then consider how much time it takes to deal with chronic and serious illness.

    I have spent a lot of time pondering the fact that most people feel food preparation is too time consuming. At times I have been guilty of these thoughts myself. Upon reflection, I realised it shows a complete lack of gratitude for the incredible abundance of food many of us have available to us. If you have the means to buy and prepare vegetables, fruits, whole grains, nuts, seeds, beans and so on, be grateful and go for it! And remember that every hour spent preparing real, whole foods will pay you back tenfold with greater energy, health and mental wellbeing.
