Whole Plant Foods are the Foundation of Health.

What to Eat or What Not to Eat... That is the Question.

  The films and people listed above can be found on the internet through YouTube, Netflix, FMTV, etc.

We do not have any affiliation with any of the above mentioned films or names. 

 We have found these sources to be excellent forms of nutritional education.


   We promote unadulterated whole foods daily physical activity and we encourage uncompromised  lifestyle changes. We hope this information can help set free anyone who is in bondage to the "Standard American Diet". 

What is Food?

image116

(food) n.

Webster's  Definition  1. That which is eaten or drunk or absorbed for the growth and repair of organisms and the maintenance of life; nourishment; nutriment; aliment.



FDA's  Definition  1. Articles used for food or drink for man or other animals.


The United States Food and Drug Administration is preoccupied with pharmaceuticals, vaccines, food contamination prevention, tobacco use, etc. These are only some of the FDA's responsibilities that make up the majority of its budget.

  

Meanwhile the American people are not protected against the toxic processed "food like" substances that promote over consumption, deplete nutrition, and ultimately cause sickness and disease.

An important question to ask yourself is; How much fiber am I getting?

There is a circulating myth that brings fear and concern to those who are considering an all whole food plant lifestyle and that is; How will you get your protein? What we need to know is,  protein is made up of amino acids. Some of these amino acids, (the essential) have to be obtained from our food and others are synthesized in our bodies.  The amino acid profile of a specific plant's protein differs from that of an animal in that  the appropriate amount of essential amino acids are not all present. This is not a reason to be concerned because while consuming  a variety of whole plant foods all the essential amino acids will be acquired. 

Plants with high essential amino acid profiles

Lentils, Peas, Spinach, Millet, Kale, Broccoli, Buckwheat, Brussel Sprouts, Asparagus, Almonds, Collards...

High Calcium Plants

 Spinach, Collards, Kale, Swiss Chard, Lettuces, Rhubarb, Mustard & Turnip Greens, Broccoli, Sesame & Chia Seeds... 

Essential Supplements

Vitamin B12 is made from bacteria that humans today do not typically consume. 

Vitamin D 3 is made in the skin through a chemical reaction from  regular direct sunlight.

Sprouting For Life

 Sprouting is a great way to get familiar with real foods and observe their different stages of growth. Sprouts are more nutrient dense than the mature plants they become. The website links below are loaded with sprouting info, seeds, and supplies. The most economic and very simple way to get started is with wide mouth quart sized ball jars and some insect screen, like shown in the picture below.
