We take so much for granted, very often come to realise when it’s a little too late, damage is done, & deterioration has deeply set in, so now is the time to take charge for improved quality of life! If ever you ask anyone what they would love most, they will almost indefinitely mention health as number one top of the list. With health we can climb mountains, swim across oceans, help others, find love, and obtain wealth.
We consume food at least three times a day on average, why not make that fuel count and ‘nutrify’ each and every single organ and living cell, as we have one body, one life, lets make it count.
Consuming healthy well balanced meals from all food groups (fruit, veg, nuts, seeds, legumes, grains, herbs, spice, edible roots & flowers), as well as eating from rainbow colours (white, yellow, orange, red, green, red, blue, purple, black, brown), daily sunshine D, exercise, and relaxation leads to good health.
In today’s world where toxins are rife, they linger in the air that we breathe, swim in our waters, and leach into our depleted poisoned soils, it’s imperative that we start to heal ourselves with whole vegan foods, in order to detoxify our bodies & our minds from the daily garbage, grunge, heavy toxic metals, pollutants, and the violence, and start cleaning up and taking good care of our ecosystems. Health starts on our plates, as does peace.
We have all come to know someone with heart issues: hypertension, high blood pressure, stroke, heart attack and or inflammation caused by not so healthy eating choices. As most are caught up in everyday life, long hours at work, and seemingly lack the time to cook, lack nutritional knowledge & know how but, if we compare the pain, expense, danger, and inconvenience of taking 18 pills every day that break down immune systems even down further and leave us feeling lifeless, and affect & negatively impact other organs, surely, it’s worth to take time out with loved ones to learn to cook, to enjoy time in the kitchen, prepping healthy food for the week, and converting to whole vegan foods that nutrify organs and cells, which keep us healthy. There are no grey shades in-between. Let’s face it, today’s diseases are on the rise, as are the toxins in meat, dairy & eggs. We need to make a choice if we value sentients, health & ecosystems. Doing good bounces good right back. Peaceful actions are great for the heart. Anyway, below spoils us for choice once again for great heart health. Wishing you love.
