Consumption of beans in particular have been shown in large population studies to be protective against heart attacks. They are packed with slow burning complex carbohydrates, protein, iron, and other minerals. Beans are one of the most affordable superfoods! And they taste great too :D #staplefoods #beans #bluezones #nutritionfacts #gutbacteria #foodRx #forksoverknives

Fall Harvesting Your Nutrition | Huffington Post

"It seems like in today’s world we are constantly hearing about the latest diet or food trend that is all the craze...the actual best piece of advice is to do as our ancestors did. Count on the bounty of the seasons to feed and nurture our bodies. Eat foods that are harvested locally, when they are in season, and in their natural state. Because eating these seasonal foods in their natural state is one of the healthiest ways to eat this time of year." I've been going crazy over the fall/winter squash, sweeter cooler kale, broccoli, and arugula harvest that has begun here in NJ. Go with seasonal foods that are at their most delicious and nutritious this time of year! #fallfoods #autumnharvest #eatseasonally #foodphilosophy

'70's Food Movement Promoted Benefits Of Plant-Based Diet

On NPR this morning. Frances Moore Lappe started advocating plant based diets in the 70s, back when we didn't have a lot of the published science and supported evidence we have today. She's still making people more aware of the social and environmental consequences of our food choices and her book, Diet for a Small Planet, is as relevant today as ever. “Hope is not what we find in evidence, it's what we become in action. ” -Frances Moore Lappe #realfoodheroes #dietforasmallplanet #npr

International Day of Peace 21 September

Happy International Day of Peace! The UN is using this day to promote its 17 Sustainable Development Goals to Improve Life All Around The Globe. If there is 1-thing -- actually 3-things, for most of us -- we can do TODAY to make a positive difference in ALL 17 goals, that thing is leaving animals off our plates. Even if it's just for one meal, if all of us do it everyday, it makes a huge difference. Our food choices are inextricably connected to the health, well-being, and peace of ALL life, people, animals, and our planet. "Every single one of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals is a building block in the global architecture of peace. It is critical that we mobilise means of implementation, including financial resources, technology development and transfer, and capacity-building, as well as the role of partnerships. Everyone has a stake and everyone has a contribution to make."
