Making the choice to eat a healthy diet is one of the most solid actions of self-love you can choose. The great thing about nourishing the self is that you also nourish the living world. You are actually taking part in the health and future of the earth in a positive and empowering manner.

  • For you . . . healthy foods can help to prevent disease; increase vitality; provide strength; produce strong bones; enhance immunity; and develop creative clear thinking, inner peace, and calm emotions.

  • For the animals . . . you participate in the prevention of violence and trauma inherent to meat production and the unnecessary slaughter that occurs today.

  • For our planet . . . choosing to eat grains and vegetables is a step towards increasing the chance that our fragile planet will survive and flourish by healing the eco-system and slowing down the vanishing rain forests and dwindling water supplies. And eating a grain-based diet is one of the best ways you can help to stop global warming.

We live in a crazy world of salmonella-tainted chickens, mad cow disease, hormone injected meats, e-coli contaminated spinach, and foods filled with empty calories, additives, and preservatives. The decision to eat a diet of organic, plant-based, living foods is a very sensible one and not as difficult as you may think.

It is time to take a stand and to be pro-active in the nonviolent yet powerful movement towards world peace, the healing of the earth, and evolving into a strong, vibrant, healthy and happy person. It is time to grab this book and begin your journey! I invite you to enjoy Eat Me Now!
