Why Plant Based Cuisine?
Sometimes the most elegant solution is the most simple. Why plant-based food? Why not? Why develop heart disease? Cancer? Diabetes? The epidemic of chronic, degenerative disease that is sweeping the western world can not only be stopped, it can be reversed. The power lies in the hands of the consumer, in the choices we make about what to put on our plates. T. Colin Campbell Foundation.

Our food supply is contaminated by GMO (genetically modified organism) that are PATENTED by huge food production conglomerates. These patented plants often will 'cross-contaminate nearby fields; thus naturally cross-breeding the crops. This is Natures way; but the result is control by the corporate conglomerate by this invasion to neighboring fields. The USA Supreme court has unfortunately upheld many decisions legalizing GMO product patents.
The end result of much of this is that we have a plentiful food supply that may not be all that good for us! Naturally and organically grown raw whole foods are becoming more plentiful. This is due to the awakening of the American Consumer and the realization that some of our food supply may in fact be harmful.
Fast foods, sugary drinks, artificial sweeteners and frankly, a lazy lifestyle, has caused the average American to be less healthy than some third world citizens. Yes, we have easy access to a huge variety of foodstuffs, but are they nutritionally good for us? In our opinion, not so much!
