Have you considered providing for your families health through nutritional plant foods instead of relying on processed foods enriched by vitamin supplements that provide basic nutrition at best?
I have fully embraced a vegetarian diet since the New Year, futhermore I have largely accepted a plant based diet. Follow my plant food diet journey as I find reason, rhyme and recipes for achieving better physique, increased energy levels and improved memory retention.
Greater awareness and understanding of the effect of feeding processed foods and dangerous packaging, leading to dietary caution as we reject products laden with additives and preservatives, flavour enhancers and colouring.
This shift is led by the desire to control our families health and fitness and shunning the help of large corporate companies who like to tell us what we should be eating.
I only hope the future will see reduced chemical usage policies to further advance the quality of fruit and vegetables shipped in from every corner of the World. But even these chemicals can easily be washed from the fruit and vegetables we buy.
Try removing a little of the unhealthy processed foods which are full of addidtives that hinder our bodies health. Instead prepare a selection of fruit, vegetables, herbs, nuts and seeds which will directly improve the amount of nutrients your family consume at every meal.
I vowed not to buy any more meat or fish. I thought I’d miss bacon in a BLT or Sausage Sunday as a treat. In-fact the opposite was true my sense of smell and taste changed. Meat I guess like smoke to an ex-smoker became unpleasant to smell cooked or uncooked.
In-fact I hurry past the meat isle to avoid the sight, it’s not that I’m precious I’m a muscular toned type of guy with a shaved head. I just happen to prefer a vegetarian diet and loving the challenge it brings.
My role as estate manager meant I was rewarded with both organic lamb and beef cuts throughout the year. Returning to buying meat from a supermarket sweating in plastic packing was a turning point in my decision to ditch meat.
Raised on a small dairy farm, fresh full cream milk was on tap this I believe led to my lactose intolerance. My bowel movements erratic and acid reflux from time to time meant that almond or coconut milk were my only choices.
I plan to cover the following topics and the links will become live as they are published. I hope you enjoy following my journey and perhaps you will consider increasing the amount of fruit and vegetables your growing family eat?
