Eating a predominantly vegan diet is no guarantee for long term health, for you could eat nothing but chips dipped in tomato sauce, pasta made from highly refined white flour or handfuls of sugar and be eating a truly vegan diet! But how unhealthy would that be? No nutrients, minerals & vitamins or fibre – a recipe for weight gain, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke and bowel cancer, to name a few.

Clearly this is an exaggeration, but it does illustrate the need to be more precise in describing a diet for long-term health and wellbeing.

The better term to use is a “whole foods plant based diet” and this is why:

We know that red blood cells are replaced in our bodies every 4 months, white blood cells every year, skin cells every 2 to 3 weeks, colon cells every 4 days. This means the body you have today is not the same as it was a year ago.

The body is a wonderful self-healing system but if it does not have the necessary building blocks to replace cells accurately then it just does the best it can.

The poorer the diet the more rapidly the body breaks down and the less it can protect itself from the ravages of time and internal and external assaults, the main reason for premature aging and long term chronic diseases.

This website aims to point you to valuable information based on well researched studies that show the amazing power of food for both good and ill and help dispel some of the food and health myths that have become so ingrained in our thinking.

Our mantra is that “you don’t have to sacrifice your tastebuds to eat healthily”.
