Health: These Foods Could Save Your Life

Scientists now tell us the Standard American Diet (SAD) causes even more deaths than smoking. This diet largely consists of ultra-processed foods loaded with chemicals, added sugars, and industrial oils.

A growing number of doctors and other health experts recommend replacing the SAD diet with one that’s full of whole, plant-based foods. Whole foods are ones that are as close to their original state as possible, and plant-based foods, as the name suggests, are those that grew out of the ground.

 These Foods Could Save Your Life

Consume the following plant-based foods each day:

3 Servings of Beans (such as hummus, lentils or tofu)
3 Servings of Other Fruit
3 Servings of Whole Grains
(such as 100% whole grain bread, oatmeal or pasta)

 2 Servings of Greens (such as kale, romaine or collards)
2 Servings of Other Vegetables (such as mushrooms)

1 Serving of Cruciferous Vegetables (such as broccoli, cauliflower or Brussels sprouts)

1 Serving of Berries
1 Serving of Nuts

1 Tablespoon of Ground Flaxseed

 1/4 Teaspoon of Turmeric

Here are the four major plant-based diets.

  1. Vegan: 100% plant food. No animal products whatsoever
    2. Vegetarian: Mostly plants but some eggs and dairy foods
    3. Pescatarian: Mostly plants but some eggs, dairy and seafood
    4. Flexitarian: Mostly plants but some eggs, dairy, seafood, poultry and meat
