Whole Food, No Chronic Disease and Food As Medicine – Podcast with Dr. Steve Moreau, AP
Eating clean, whole, unprocessed and organic food is perhaps the most important thing we can do in the world today in order to be physically healthy. In the USA today, most people live on a SAD diet (Standard American Diet). This diet includes consumption of boxed, packaged, and processed nutrient deficient food. This diet also includes lots of refined sugar, fried vegetable oils, dairy, wheat, alcohol and other things which are massively contributing to chronic disease in the world today. In addition to eating many unhealthy foods, people have strayed away from eating many servings of vegetables, which are the most nutrient dense health protective foods that one can consume. In this podcast, Dr. Stever Moreau, AP will discuss his journey of being a vegetarian and vegan eventually finding a diet that helped him to heal the most. He also runs an operation that provides organic, small farm food to people in the Orlando area. Learn more about the role of whole foods and how they can help to heal you, contributing to abundant health.
