One of the biggest problems in the diets of most people today is the fact that so much of our food consumption comes from processed meats and packaged foods. Not only will this cause the body’s natural pH balance to shift, setting you up for problems, but it’s also going to cause you to place a high number of toxins in your body that will end up damaging your organs, causing blood sugar instability, and could even impact the way your brain functions. By making the shift over to foods that are entirely natural, you eliminate the probability of these problems from ever occurring.

If you’ve seen the outstanding documentary Forks Over Knives you know its premise that “most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting our present menu of animal-based and processed foods.” (If you haven’t seen the film and you’re contemplating a plant-based diet, it’s a must-watch. Rent it tonight). The film gives an important overview of the 20-year China-Cornell-Oxford Project that led to findings that a number of diseases can be linked to the Western diet of processed and animal-based foods.

Here are 101 of the best foods to be eating as part of your plant-based diet plan.

The Growing Fight Against Food Fraud

WHEN YOU’RE SHOPPING AT THE grocery store, you probably expect that the olive oil you see came from, well, olives. And that the organic vegetables were never exposed to toxic chemicals, the cod fillet is sliced from a member of the cod species and the spices are the pure ground form of whatever flavoring they represent. Increasingly, however, there’s a chance you might be wrong. In recent years, there has been an uptick in reports of so-called food fraud, or attempts by various entities—including storage workers, suppliers and distributors—to alter products and mislead customers and food comp

From Soup to Nuts: Science-based Recommendations for FDA’s “Healthy” Label

If you wanted to offer your two cents on how the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) defines “healthy” food, you’ll have to keep those pennies in your pocket for now. The public comment period closed on April 26, and the people—more than a thousand in total—have spoken. The comments represent a diverse range of perspectives. Some are purist, suggesting that all artificial colors or flavors, preservatives, and genetically engineered ingredients be excluded from foods bearing the “healthy” label. Others raise concerns about consumer (mis)interpretations of “healthy” and related terms, and reco
