I've had a tiny bit of time to work on the web site. I've updated the "Food Finder" section and started with Albertsons and Trader Joe's. The links to those stores will have pictures of food I've found in those stores that fits with the diet. I will try to add to these pages as I find more and more products that work. Also, I will expand to the other stores listed on the main "Food Finder" page as I have more time.
Additionally, I like to keep up the "Evidence" page. Most of the updates happen on the right-hand side and highlight articles and blogs that talk about the benefits of a plant-based diet. It's very interesting to watch as more and more people and organizations are advocating for a plant-based diet. It's so simple and yet because of our rich, fatty American diet we just refuse to quit eating meat, dairy and oil....the very things making us so sick. Why do people prefer a "quick fix" pill rather than changing their diet? A pill is convenient but then you still feel crummy, you still have to watch your weight, you increase your risk for heart disease, cancer, macular degeneration, arthritis, diabetes and the list goes on. It sounds dramatic to change to a plant-based diet but ask the people who have made the change.....it really isn't that hard!
Oh....did I mention that I get to eat all the time and I'm down 50 lbs!!!!! Yep, started at 220 lbs. (considered overweight based on BMI set by the medical communty) and now weigh in at about 170 lbs. (normal by BMI standards) wooo-hoooo!!
