Food that cures: the revolution of the vegan fork

The great Greek physician Hippocrates used to say: “Let food be your medicine and let your medicine be your food”.

When we are sick, we generally look for additional remedies, products that can overload those we already have in our body to change the state of things. In fact, chemical medicines.

This is what the Western healing tradition generally makes available. But what if we thought of removing instead of putting on?


Not everything is healthy

The revolution of the vegan fork it is a text based on this very principle. On foundations that come from the East and from veganism, which invite you to choose with awareness what you bring to your mouth, a choice that aims to seek what is fresh, vegetable, wholemeal; a choice that invites you to practice fasting, if necessary. In short, to seek the balance of the body thanks to his raw medicine: the food.

This is the message of a book written by several hands, closely connected to the documentary "Forks Over Knives", American film, directed in 2011 by the independent director Lee Fulkerson.

It is an invitation to remake one's ability to choose food, an invitation that wants to make it clear how often bad habits that are difficult to leave behind, media influences and more are aspects that do not benefit the health of individuals at all, but only serve to inflate the wallets of industrialists and doctors!

It is a suggestion to vary the taste, to be eclectic, curious, eager to experiment a way of eating with a view to a sought-after well-being for oneself and also for the Planet.

Apparently, in fact, even the most harmless things, such as simple breakfast cereals, for example, can hide pitfalls and dangerous elements: are we able to notice them?


To love yourself is to change

Changing your eating habits is possible. It can break with bad traditions and with the intake of heavy, processed, fatty foods; we can think of adopting healthy, clean, fresh foods, which we may learn to cultivate with our hands, which enter the body with joy and to which the body responds by giving us as many.

"Change your eating habits - whether it is taking the path of a new plant-based diet, or simply reducing the consumption of meat and dairy products and adding more plant-based foods, or perhaps even perfecting one's habits by eliminating oils obtained with industrial processes - requires consistency and commitment ". This is what the authors write.

As often happens, sometimes it is more difficult to plan, think, plan things than to put them into practice. Not everything that may seem impossible at first is actually impossible!

To begin to really love ourselves, to heal ourselves with food, we can, for example, start with the replace refined bread with del wholemeal bread without salt, change the jam made with sugar with sugar-free jam, perhaps homemade. Just choose to make the tart without using butter, putting oil instead.

At breakfast matches with of fruit and vegetable smoothies, to cook use water, vegetable broth, lemon juice, instead of heated fats, eat more whole foods and less and less refined ones. Finally, check that your pantry is full of spices! Here are just a few small tips.

The recipes of the revolution

Here the third part of the book takes us to the heart of the matter, proposing well 125 vegan recipes ranging from oat porridge with fruit, oatmeal and blueberry muffins, smoothies, potatoes cooked in various ways, pea guacamole, aubergine mousse, bean creams; and again fusion tastes like the yamadillas, soups, creams and velvets; salads for every taste, such as the delicious quinoa salad with currants, and alternative dressings of all sorts, such as tofu mayonnaise.

And still puddings, biscuits, brownies and crunchy bars. The chefs who collaborated in the creation of the book are committed to drafting vegan recipes healthy and tasty, which have nothing to envy to the old less healthy dishes.

Furthermore, in the text we find the illuminating explanations of important scholars, including the Dr. Neal Barnard, Dr. John McDougall, Rip Esselstyn and many others.

There is no shortage of first-hand experiences, stories and success stories of people who have adopted a vegan diet, such as San'Dera Prude, who no longer needs diabetes medications, has lost weight and feels great. In short, there are millions of men and women who have not been afraid to change their diet to improve the quality of their life.

They decided to follow a diet that would help them to live in full health, to prevent diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, cancer, arthritis, Alzheimer's and much more.
