Today’s Health Tip ~ What Is a Whole-Foods, Plant-Based Diet?

What Are the Basic Principles of a Whole Foods, Plant-Based Diet?

    • It emphasizes whole, minimally processed foods.
    • It limits or avoids animal products.
    • It Focuses on plants, including vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes, seeds and nuts, which should make up the majority of what you eat.
    • It Excludes refined foods, like added sugars, white flour and processed oils.
    • It pays special attention to food quality, with many proponents of the WFPB diet promoting locally sourced, organic food whenever possible.



  1. Maybe animal-eating is as bad for one’s spirit as it seemingly is for one’s body. …

    Much, if not most, of the plentiful violence committed by humankind is against God’s animals, their blood literally shed and bodies eaten in mind-boggling quantities by people. That fact even leaves me wondering whether the metaphorical forbidden fruit of Eden eaten by Adam and Eve was actually God’s four-legged creation.

    I can see that really angering the Almighty — a lot more than the couple’s eating non-sentient, non-living, non-bloodied fruit. I’ve yet to hear a monotheist speak out against what has collectively been done to animals for so long.

    (Just to be clear, I’m not vegetarian. Though I seldom eat mammal meat, I do enjoy eating prawns or shrimp pretty much on a weekly basis.)

    1. Thank you for your comment. There is much logic and truth in what you express. What we consume whether food or intellectual materials affects how we respond to life. Have a great day. Ray
