Just when you thought that your everyday food shopping was fraught with a myriad of edible temptations around every corner, we now have a ‘new kid on the block’. Yes, the so-called plant-based food products seem to be everywhere we look, including fast-food chains around the world.
So, what’s the problem? Well there’s good news and bad news.
On the positive side, the more people opting to eat plant-based foods is good for our fellow creatures and the environment.
Unfortunately, from a health perspective, the majority of these foods are made using refined carbs, sugars, unhealthy fats, processed soya, too much salt, and dubious additives.
In other words, a recipe that increases our risk of succumbing to chronic diseases such as heart conditions, arthritis, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, strokes, and chronic fatigue syndrome. They’re also highly addictive!
Having observed what is going on with the ever increasing number of vegan junk foods appearing on our supermarket shelves, I was prompted to write a book that highlighted the dangers associated with regularly consuming these processed vegan foods.
So, this book fulfils that objective; however, I would have failed in my mission if I’d not offered an alternative choice. Yes, I’m talking about a whole foods vegan diet, which is based upon fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, whole grains, and pulses. A diet that’s much more in tune with nature and conducive towards good health.
In essence, this book is my ‘guide post’ to help vegans navigate the sometimes convoluted route that can lead towards making healthy food choices, whilst avoiding the crossroads designed to tempt you towards the addictive and alluring vegan junk foods.
