If you are following a plan of vegetarian diet nutrition, are you getting it all? First we have to destroy the myth that eating a Standard American Diet (SAD) provides you with what your body really needs.
If you’ve been learning at the Hippocrates Health Institute for any amount of time, you now know that the food pyramid’s aim is to help the lobbyists , not your health. Most people on the SAD are starving their body of vitamins and minerals, enzymes and phytochemicals.
Phytochemicals are the electricity of the body. If your energy and reactions in your body are weak, this is the bottom line even more than vitamins and minerals.
You may be taking many vitamin supplements, but for the most part the body cannot digest and metabolize them because they are artificial. Only when we get back to our design and eat fresh organic plant-based food do we find the vitamins, minerals, enzymes and phytochemicals the body can readily use.
You get all these straight from the food you eat when you consume growing sprouts: sunflower seed sprouts, pea green sprouts, alfalfa sprouts, bean sprouts…
…The growing sprouts and wheatgrass have literally 30 times the phytochemicals you find even in other organic vegetables.
Plant-based food in its raw unaltered state contains about half the enzymes you need to digest it. So you can imagine the encumbrance you are placing on your body if you regularly consume food that does not come with its own digestive enzymes and is also not easily digestible.
The digestive system is the most energy intensive of all the body’s systems anyway. If you over-burden it with heavily refined, cooked foods and meat, there is barely any energy left to perform cleansing and repair functions.
Do you ever feel really tired after a meal? I know I have and I thought it was normal. But you’ll find that eating an 80% raw vegetarian diet, you get the nutrition your body needs and you will have a lot more energy.
