Here are Five Quick and Easy ways to improve your Health Dramatically…

  1. Plant Based Breakfast. Start your Day with Zero Cholesterol, and get ahead of the pack right from the start. Plant foods contain NO cholesterol. So, while others are clogging their arteries at 8am, you can be cleaning yours. (Many Plant Foods help to reverse Heart Disease, by gently unclogging arteries). Quick and simple choices include Fruit smoothies (Soaked dried fruit, peeled bananas, water, and any other seasonal fruit), or Oat flakes (Try this: 1-2 cups oatflakes, Half cup raisins/sultanas, pour boiling water over and mix well. Allow to soak for 5-10 mins).
  2. Berries. One of the top health foods for your heart and overall health. Aim to munch on a handfull of berries a day.
  3. Flax Seeds. This is especially important if you make the wise choice to increase your intake of Plant Food over Animal products. The one slight drawback of a largely/entirely Plant Based diet is the possibility of not taking in enough Omega 3 oils, and too much Omega 6 oils. This risk is entirely averted by 1-2 Tablespoons of ground Flaxseeds/Linseeds (same thing) per day. However, they must be ground, or they go through you with no benefit. Sprinkle on your breakfast, Lunch or Dinner. Ground Flaxseed/Linseed is available in all supermarkets and health stores.
  4. Apples. Apples are an amazing food. Firstly they are a super aid to digestion due to an abundance of both soluble and insoluble fibre. Then they also help keep your breath fresh by combatting food odors. Then they help to improve your blood sugar levels. And finally, Apples are anti viral. So expect less colds and flus. Ah… That’s why Granny said “An apple a day….”
  5. Potatoes. What? Potatoes… Healthy? Actually, yes. Potatoes contain all the nutrients necessary for life. People have thrived on potatoes for extended periods of time. Indeed, the pre-famine Irish who subsisted on potatoes were noted for excellent health, strength,  and good looks. Potatoes contain No cholesterol, but an abundance of Vitamin C, Fibre, and minerals. Potatoes also have Low Calorie density. In other words, a bellyfull of potatoes contains enough calories, but not too much. (About 110 calories for a medium potato). In contrast, a meal containing meat/dairy and/or oils will contain too many calories per bellyfull. Be careful what you eat with potatoes. Adding butter, cream, oils, or meat will negate the above benefits. Here is a potato recipe I made yesterday: 4 medium potatoes quartered. 1 cup red lentils. 2 cups blended tomatoes. 1 chopped leek. Simmer the potatoes for ten minutes. Add the chopped leek and lentils. add blended tomatoes. Simmer for another 15 minutes, until everything is soft. Add water as needed, as the lentils tend to dry out the dish. Add salt to taste.

I hope you enjoy trying the above tips. They are all consistent with a Low Fat, Wholefood, Plant Based diet. That is the diet proven to reverse Heart disease, diabetes, cancer and overweight/obesity.
