“Sometimes the most elegant solution is the most simple solution. Why plant-based nutrition? Why not? Why develop heart disease? Cancer? Diabetes?
The epidemic of chronic degenerative disease that is sweeping the western world cannot only be stopped, it can be reversed. The power lies in the hands of the consumer, in the choices we make about what to put on our plates.”
~ T. Colin Campbell
Research shows that people who eat mostly plant based foods are the healthiest and tend to avoid chronic disease. In contrast people who primarily eat animal-based foods are more vulnerable to developing inflammatory diseases. The main reason for this is the PH balance that occurs in your body. Plant based eating is highly alkaline, verses the typical American diet that is quite acidic. A well-balanced alkaline diet prevents inflammatory diseases such as arthritis, heart disease, cancer, irritable bowel syndrome and a host of other inflammatory diseases.
Optimizing your health is the driving force of our Nutritional Coaching service. We accomplish this by:
- Creating a plan that works for your life.
- Discussing portion control and menu options that will help you introduce and/or increase plant based foods into your diet.
- Helping you choose tasty, nutritious foods with the
healthiest ingredients available.
