I believe in preventive medicine.

Many people wait until they get sick to take care of themselves.

I know that ever since I’ve become about 80% vegetarian, I have more energy, feel stronger and faster, and have less stress and better mental clarity.

“Americans have been among the first people worldwide to have the luxury of bombarding themselves with nutrient-deficient, high-calorie food, often called empty-calorie or junk food…The number one health problem in the United States is obesity, and if the current trend continues, by the year 2030 all adults in the United States will be obese…This is especially discouraging for the dieter because after spending so much money attempting to lose weight, 95 percent of them gain all the weight back and then add on even more pounds within three years.” (Furhman, J. Eat to Live, p. 15)

Animal protein causes diseases. Plant protein prevents them.

Am I saying you should become a vegetarian? No, it’s your choice. Am I recommending it? You bet. (But first consult your doctor)

I could go on with facts and stats, but instead I will give you some tips and sample meals to try from Eat to Live

1. Make a salad your main dish, and eat it first.
2. Eat as much fruit as you like.
3. Beans are good for your heart…eat them every day.
4. Eliminate animal and dairy products (or at least cut back drastically).
5. Eat more mushrooms.

1 cup oatmeal
1 ounce walnuts
1 ounce raisins

Salad-stuffed whole wheat pita with hummus
Fresh fruit

Salad with cracked peppercorn dressing
Vegetarian chili
Green apple slices in lime juice

This just an example of a day of eating vegetarian. These powerful meals will energize you, help prevent diseases, help you lose weight and help you perform at a higher level. Try it and let me know your thoughts. If you need any vegetarian or non-vegetarian recipes, email me at
