Meaty Matters: Let the Truth About Veggies Set You Free

Marilynn Preston on

You heard me. There is no one best way of eating that works for everyone. Your body tells you if it's getting the right ratio or carbs, fats and proteins by how it's feeling and how well it's moving, sleeping, thinking, reacting, creating and problem-solving.

If you are feeling 100 percent -- strong and energetic, no health problems, a calm mind and positive sense of personal well-being -- feel free to ignore Vegetarian Awareness Month and enjoy your next fried pork chop.

But if you're like most Americans, sick and tired of feeling sick and tired, changing your diet -- eating more vegetables and eliminating processed foods and factory-fed meats loaded with toxins -- is a fantastic first step toward regaining your health, your strength, your vitality.

So think about it. And be cheerful: Ice Cream Month is just around the corner.
