So, we all want an easy fix right? I know I do, if I could just magically have abs by tomorrow I think I'd be pretty stoked, So in this day and age, when we want things fast and we want them easy and we want self care, nice skin, low cholesterol, good digestion, no illnesses, and we all love animals so we certainly don't want to contribute to their suffering, and the planet is in a mess right now so you definitely want to help that cause...but geez if there were just that one thing we could do that could be the answer to all of that!?! Oh wait there is...Go Vegan! You heard it right, it is as simple as eating fruits, veggies, whole grains, beans, legumes, and cutting out meat, dairy, and eggs,
Everyone tries to complicate it, but it truly is that easy, I like to find a few recipes online or in books that I want to try out for the week and always have my staples of smoothies, avocado toast, oatmeal, fresh fruit, chickpea salad, and any kind of veggie pasta. Then I try to get creative with a few other recipes.
Studies have shown that eating a plant based diet can prevent and reverse heart disease, the number one killer in the United States. It can prevent certain cancers, help manage blood sugar, regulate hormones, lower cholesterol and triglycerides, lower blood pressure, help with infertility and erectile dysfunction, heal digestion and digestive related illnesses, and even prevent Alzheimer's. Do your body and mind a favor and let it heal by eating a plant based diet.
The topic of diet and disease is certainly not a new one, but no one wants to believe that it is as easy of a fix as it is. The evidence based research is there. Now all we have to do is get in the kitchen and start chopping, blending, baking, and sauteing our way to better health.
Change is always a bit difficult at first, but you can do hard things. Especially when those hard things lead to massive gains in so many different areas.
So head to the garden, the farmers market or the produce section, keep it simple or get creative and let Google guide you to some plant based heaven.
