If I could have just one wish today it would be for all my patients, family, friends & fellow citizens of this world to read Janice Stanger, PhD’s wonderful book the Perfect Formula Diet. Health and healing at its foundation is at all of our fingertips with this simple nutrition approach.
Here is the link to her website: http://perfectformuladiet.com
An excerpt from her book:
The Perfect Formal Diet balances each of these categories of Perfect Foods against each other. By Volume:
1/4 of your food will be vegetables
1/4 of your food will be fruits
1/4 of your food will be legumes (beans and peas) and/or potatoes
1/4 of your food will be whole grains
To this rotation, add a handful of nuts or a tablespoon or 2 of nut or seed butters 4-6 days a week
In addition, be sure to eat 2 tablespoons a day of fresh ground flaxseeds. (buy them whole and use a coffee grinder to grind fresh daily)
Eat flavorful foods with generous amounts of fresh or dried herbs and spices
And that is all. That is all you need. As the Beatles sang to the mountain tops, ‘All you need is Love!” For nutrition, all you need is Plants! And believe me she will back it all up in the book with nutrition science fundamentals. You will learn so much about the myths in nutrition that have been perpetuated by the animal and dairy industries. You will feel a sense of liberation intellectually and then physically, & emotionally as your body heals. So beautiful, so simple, so loving & pure.
And as earth day approaches, know that as you eat to heal your body you will also be eating to best heal the planet as animal agriculture is the single greatest cause of environmental destruction.
If you are local in Oregon, please come on Earth Day, April 22nd to Corvallis (details below) to see Janice and William Ripple, PhD speak on these 2 topics. I will be there and hope to see many of my patients, friends, resident physicians & colleagues there too!
Peace and optimal health through whole food plant-based nutrition,
