Is A Vegan Diet Better?
With all of the attention on specific diets and specific foods within those diets, it's normal to question whether things like the vegan diet or lifestyle is actually health? It really doesn't matter if you break it down by philosophy or by what you may have read in the newspaper, it comes down to whether or not the foods you eat help you get to an ideal weight.
Is there an absolute best way to grocery shop for healthy foods? There is when you focus on the produce section for your nutrition.
Finding new ways to grocery shop is to better understand what is important, like the difference between food pyramid and myplate. Taking a step back and objectively looking at these guidelines can show you how to be more conscious of nutrition. In this podcast episode, I share my thoughts on why you should change the way you shop and spend your nutrition dollars on produce.
NOTE: Thank you so much for listening to this brief podcast. I hope you will use my guidelines to become a healthier shopper.

Is there a significant relationship between food nutrition and your health? Ultimately it comes down to finding out what works well for each of us and understanding health related issues like, how many edible plant species are there and available for us to eat.
In this podcast episode of The Mental Minute, I look at nutrition from the basis of how nutrient dense whole foods are so that we can learn how to spend less money on food. By getting more nutrition from our foods and eating a wide variety of foods like more edible plants, there ultimately will be a significant correlation between, food diversity, illness, and our health.

Eat Like A Bear Diet Plan
I'll just go ahead and ask the question, "why should you be an omnivore"? This really stems from the thought that we should let our environment determine our diet.
The commonality we all share, is that we want to get the most nutrition from the foods that we eat. It doesn't matter if you're vegan, or vegetarian, or paleo, pescatarian, the way that you get the most vitamins and minerals from the foods that you ingest, is through good gut health and digestion.
Going forward, I want you to try to model your nutrition plan around the bear. Bears are omnivores, but, they're mostly vegetarian. They're also adaptable creatures, based on their surroundings. Polar bears eat seals. Panda bears eat mostly bamboo. North American Nordic bears eat pretty much just anything ... berries, fruits, nuts, mushrooms. But, they also eat meat, as well. Again, based on their surroundings.
Healthy Diet Lifestyle Change
Why is it that when people live a certain lifestyle, a general assumption that everyone should be that way follows? Now the title of this podcast speaks to vegans, but in today's episode, I actually breakdown why it's not really important what you eat, but what your body thinks is important to you.
In true digestive fashion, the body doesn't really care what label you put on the foods you I'm sure you've had a conversation with someone before about what's the best diet or meal plan. If you have, this episode is definitely a must. Click the link to listen or download.
These podcasts are an extension of me sharing what I believe is the source to be healthy emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually: a strong gut.
