Knowledge Is Power

‘Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world’

Nelson Mandela

As a child I adored Nelson Mandela. In my decades of teaching, I have used his saying to remind me that when we focus on problems we will have more problems. But, when we focus on possibilities we have more opportunities hence my relenting chant about food and health for humans and non-humans alike. I am in service for a healthy world for all who live here, that’s my mission.

The topic of nutrition has become a bewildering landscape of cultural myth and vested interest. There is an urgent need for a new approach to human diet, one that cuts through the commercial PR, the political caution and the nutritional confusion.

The MACROVeganapproach to eating addresses these concerns with a fusion of two important doctrines. The first of these is the ecological insights of ancient Asian healthcare found in macrobiotic studies. This tradition points to the benefits of seasonal, regional and ecologically sustainable nutrition.

The second set of standards come from the ethics of the modern vegan approach to eating that drives the leading edge of contemporary nutritional science proven by both medical study and extensive epidemiological research.

The MACROVeganway of eating addresses the requirements for vibrant health as well as a delicious, diverse and socially responsible way of eating.

Never in modern history has there been such an interest in food and at the same time, such a lack of confidence in the basic quality of food, and more to the point ‘what is actually in the food’.I like to think of myself as an ‘information broker’ and share what I learn in the hope that those who read what I write pass it on because ‘Knowledge is Power’.  

Bill and I have been very fortunate over the decades to have developed the gift of knowing how to take good care of ourselves and others in terms of food and lifestyle. We are not driven by the latest food fad or popular theory but on a solid principled approach that considers both Modern Science, Ancient Wisdom and Human Ecology.

More studies are constantly shared about what you are actually subjecting yourself to by eating animal products, let alone the cruelty that is inflicted upon our animals. It’s important to be on top of what is surfacing here. As a long-time vegan I am an eternal optimist that we can increase the number of people worldwide to switch to a wholefood, plant-based diet and vegan lifestyle.

Healthy Eating

Every major health organization in the world including The World Health Organization and the Food and Agriculture Organizations of the United Nations, The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, The American Heart Association, the American Diabetes Association, and the American Institute for Cancer Research agree that a well-balanced plant-based diet is best for a healthy life. It not only helps in the prevention of disease but often promotes the reversal of serious health problems. It is only individual and social habit that limits positive change.

The personal, social, economic and environmental impact of what we eat should be at the top of the social agenda. The changes that are essential are not part of a passing fad, super foods or superficial “detox” approach to healthy eating. Eating well is not being on a “diet” it is about eating in a way that supports a healthy, responsible and ethical way of eating. It is ending the suffering of our animal kingdom. It is about having an awareness that for decades it is known that we had begun passing some crucial ecological tipping points beyond which our civilization, and even our future as a species, could be in jeopardy.We must connect the dots regarding our food choices and the ecosystem that supports all life on Earth.

There are endless possibilities to touch the lives of all who cross our path. Over the years Bill and I have had such fun creating a plethora of different workshops, classes and courses and changing the lives of thousands. We are blessed to do what we do. Our human ecology project is the driving force to all we do daily. Join us in service for a healthy world for humans and non-humans alike. Being vegan is a great joy. We look forward to meeting you.
