Under ideal circumstances, we would all be eating organically grown
vegetables and fruits from our own gardens or neighborhood market gardens. For
many of us, the garden is a distant retirement dream and we must do our best
with store-bought food. Our intention is to simulate eating from the garden by
buying and preparing fresh or frozen vegetables, fruit, poultry and fish,
according to our own preferences and tolerances. Most of the desired food is
purchased in the regular supermarket or produce store.
We would prefer organically grown produce and naturally raised and fed animal
foods. Whenever organic foods are available and affordable - these are our first
choice. Unfortunately, pure, uncontaminated food is not always available or is
too expensive, and we make due with the foods at hand. We occasionally look for
unusual rice products, wheat flour substitutes, and dairy substitutes such as
Eat More Vegetables.
Many people are shifting to less meat and more vegetables and fruit in their
diet and more are choosing a vegetarian path. Increased vegetable intake is a
key to the success of the program and one of the clearest emerging dietary
recommendations from all scientific studies. Increased vegetable intake reduces
obesity, coronary artery disease, strokes, cancer, and diabetes. Vegetables and
fruits should account for more than 60 % of daily calories.
High protein, high fat diets such as the Atkins’ diet for weight loss are the
opposite of healthy eating and are examples of what not to do. Plants provide
more carbohydrate and low fat as energy sources; this is normal for human
metabolism. Sugar is not “bad” since glucose is the main energy source for all
living cells on planet earth. Any proper nutrient in excess, however, can turn
from good to bad. The idea of right nutrition is to get the right amount of
nutrients at the right place at the right time. The program advises against adding sugar to foods that already contain natural
sugars. You do not add sugar, syrups, honey or molasses in the kitchen or on the
table. The elemental nutrient formulas (Alpha ENF and PMX) contain sugar in the
right proportion to supply energy since glucose is the fuel required by all
cells to function. Again, the trick is to have the right amount, at the right
time associated with all the other nutrients in the right proportion.
Complete, if not superior, nutrition is possible with vegetable foods alone.
Many people are unaware that vegetable foods have enough protein to maintain
athletic bodybuilding. The only trick is to combine vegetable foods in groups of
three or four. If you mix four vegetables from different botanical families
(carrots, peas, broccoli, and squash) with rice, you tend to get complete
nutrient sets with the exception of Vitamins B12 and D. The
combination of rice and a legume (peas or beans) is an easy method of increasing
vegetable protein intake. Use 3-4 vegetables per meal. If you wish, the addition
of small portions of poultry, fish, or red meat easily completes the daily
requirement for protein.
