“You're thinking I'm one of those wise-ass California vegetarians who is going to tell you that eating a few strips of bacon is bad for your health. I'm not. I say its a free country and you should be able to kill yourself at any rate you choose, as long as your cold dead body is not blocking my driveway.”     Scott Adams    
Vegan: These recipes are vegan because meat eating is not healthy.  Fiber is what we need to eat more of, not protein.  When protein was first recognized in food, it was recognized in meat, so scientists assumed that animal sources of food were the only sources of protein.  Thus, our obsession with food from animals began.  Not true, all vegetables contain protein.  Even though we need protein, more is not better.  Few people in the world, except in cases of extreme poverty, lack sufficient protein.  What Americans lack is adequate fiber to live a healthy life.  You will sacrifice your health for that meat/dairy/egg habit.  The reasons for not eating meat are too numerous for me to go into here.  Click here for more information about why being vegan is a good idea. 

Gluten Free:  Why not wheat?  Throughout the history of the growing of this grain, we have remade our wheat so that it is very much unlike original wheat, so much so that the DNA has changed.  We have made our wheat so that it gives us the specific textures we want to make soft cakes and breads, for instance.  Not only is the refining process bad for our digestive systems, but the wheat grain itself is bad for us.  Not even in its natural grain form should it still be considered healthy to eat.  (ref.: Wheat Belly by Wm. Davis, M.D.) 

Raw: Natural food is not cooked.  All arguments in favor of cooking food fall short when the total nutritional value of food is considered.  Cooking a food chemically changes it.  That change causes our white blood cell count to increase.  If we eat a raw food before eating our cooked food, a banana before breakfast or a salad before a meal, our white blood cell count doesn't change.  So, it is important to include as many raw foods as you can throughout your day.  For more raw information and recipes click here.
