When I was growing up I learned malnutrition as a function of not having enough food to eat. That definition obviously still holds, however, malnutrition in the day and age of genetically modified processed and prepackaged foods yielding little to no nutritive value seems to also be an accurate definition. Pretty sad really. Food, it seems, now carries more risk than reward. Wiring our brains with little hits of dopamine pleasure creating a vicious cycle…
I don’t need to tell you how bad it is – Just look around. I’m not here to tell you about how crappy things are and how healthcare costs are skyrocketing as a result- I’m assuming you know that much already and frankly, I’d rather just pass along some good information that you can start using today!
Here’s My Friend Mark. He’s Got That Good Information You Can Start Using Today.
I met Mark back in 2004 on the island of Kauai. He was running a small plant-based restaurant with all kinds of raw food options. It was hands down the best food I’ve ever had. So good in fact, myself and my wife decided to have our wedding reception at his restaurant. All of our food, including the wedding cake was 100% vegan. All of our guests were in awe of the food!
