Decades ago, our great-grandparents and maybe even our grandparents lived off the land and ate foods grown in enriched soil. They seemed to maintain a degree of vibrant health because their foods were dense with nutrients. Today, it’s a different story, you only need to go to the nearest fast food restaurants to get a meal. But ingesting these processed frankenfoods comes at a hefty cost, our health! This needs to change, and a call to action is required. My newest book The Real Food Revolution, Healthy Eating Green Groceries and the Return to The American Family Farm, dives deep into the subject of mindful eating and offer doable solutions.

9. Educating the Next Generation
Our current lifestyle of unconscious eating has lead to an onslaught of chronic illness. Diseases and conditions like diabetes, coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity, and many more are commonly accepted as normal. Sadly, our younger generation is growing up with these conditions and think nothing of it. They have never been taught what the effects of a diet can have on their mind, body and spirit. They don’t understand what a healthy diet is. I actually met a child who never saw a tomato before; I was shocked. This has got to change, and education is the key.
This book is filled with factual data and common sense solutions that will widen your eyes. It’s time to get real and understand how these unhealthy, tampered food sources impact our body, our health, our family, our nation, our world. It’s time to roll up our sleeves and take action whether they’re small steps or giant leaps. Whether it’s changing one meal a day or creating a whole new diet plan, it will make a difference. Making this change means fewer illnesses, less medical costs, and less suffering because they can be preventable.
