Plant foods alone can keep you healthy in every stage of life.
There is so much information available on the benefits of a plant-based diet from infancy, childhood, adolescence, pregnancy, lactation, middle age and old age.
But just like with any diet, you have to know how to eat right at each stage in order to remain healthy.
In August 2013, I became convinced enough in my mind to make a complete change from a meat and dairy based diet to a plant-based diet that contains almost no meat or dairy foods.
I mentioned in my last post how one of the things I’d done to change my diet was I stopped eating sugar or foods that contained sugar.
Today Australians consume almost a cup of sugar a day every day of the year, most of it hidden in drinks. So my statement may strike some readers with disbelief – how can anyone live sugar-free, and why would they want to?
