The Whole Food Plant Based diet has changed our lives in more ways than ever could have anticipated. It has changed our bodies to be slimmer, healthier, stronger versions much like our decades younger selves, only better. It has changed our meals to be more economical, delicious and energizing that ever before. The physical feelings evoked from nourishment delivered from a belly full of whole grains, starches, vegetables, legumes & fruits are proof positive that there is no lack of nutrient available to our bodies.
There is a massive amount of evidence as to The Whole Food Plant Based Diet and how it relates to health.
So why doesn't everybody know about " The Whole Food Plant Based Diet"?
The answer is simply because there is no additional money to be made by encouraging and promoting people to consume a variety and abundance of Plant Based Whole Foods as the entirety of their diet.
Our food value system as it relates to consumer spending is driven by money not health.
No Corporate profit driven marketing meetings are held to influence your thoughts or purchasing behaviour when it comes to eating Whole Foods which are Plant Based.
The Whole Food Plant Based Diet costs the same or I would venture to say far less than the current bag of groceries which you are already purchasing. Remove meat and dairy from that bag and replace with the same amount of dollars spent in starches, vegetables, fruits, whole grains & legumes and your bag would multiply and overflow.
Consuming a Whole Food Plant Based diet has changed more than our physical health and bodies. We now "think" differently about the messages delivered to us daily in the news, through the internet and various social interactions.
The marketing of food promotes dollars spent not good health. If good health can be tied into the commercial messages in any which way or form it will be delivered as people very much desire to purchase that which is good for them.
If you think about any related messages regarding "health and diet" ask yourself; "Why is this message being sent to me and is there any financial transaction involved or intended?"
If the messaging is supported by a nutritional study then ask; "Were the participants solely consuming a whole food plant based diet?"
For example, nutritional studies which malign the Potato as a harbinger of bad health often group all potato eaters in the same result group be it baked, boiled, or french fried. I think we can all agree french fried potatoes have been shown to be detrimental to health and yet they are included with the mix along with likely more healthy preparations.
What else did they consume with their potatoes? If they are all eating steak frites perhaps they do not really represent an appropriate study group as far as health and wellness and the potato.
In a dream world, we would be able to hold Marketing Meetings for Nutrition and Health. The discussions would focus solely on the best and proper way to combine foods and delivering the educational messages to support through the channels which reach the most populations.
In the meantime, we are left to sift through health messages and highlighted nutritional study results on our own. Why? You can't patent vegetables.
