If you want to drop that extra 10 pounds... if you want to get back in shape... if you want to become healthy... here is a great way to do all of that and more.
And this is a time-proven way to become healthy. Full of great protein, vitamins, life-giving nutrients that supercharge your life and move you towards my full plant-based diet.
This 10 Day Diet is Simple—
Your Plate Should Look Like this - 1/2 Organic Greens and Veggies, 1/4 Organic Brown Rice, 1/4 Organic Beans... that's It. If you want to have a couple of fruits daily that is OK too.
Health Benefits of Organic Greens and Veggies
Green live veggies like kale are important. To lower the cost of organic live veggies contract with an organic farmer in your area. Cut out the middleman and thus reap the benefits of lower cost, which is lower than regular food at supermarkets and these farmers also deliver. Google "Buy Organic Veggies Direct from Farmer" and lots of places in the area to order great organic veggies at wonderful prices will come up. Also add in other types of veggies, including red veggies, orange, white, purple, all of these different types of veggies are important for great health.
Kale is full of lots of nutrients found in green leafy veggies that will alkalize our body... and it's full of Vitamins, A (more than 500% of your RDA of Vitamin A), C (More than 200%), and B6 and K (About 700%) and also calcium, manganese, and potassium. Kale also contains iron for building our red blood cells and preventing anemia and boosting vitality. And kale, broccoli, spinach, lettuce, turnip greens, swiss chard, and many other greens are full of live enzymes that we need to stay healthy. And most of these green veggies should be consumed raw but they can also be cooked. Remember up to 75% of all nutrients and 100 % of all live enzymes are lost when we cook food.
Plus kale contains lots of lutein and zeaxanthin that are great for preventing macular degeneration. And kale boosts our immune system, promotes healthy blood clot formation, and kale is also loaded with beta-carotene helping to prevent cancer and other diseases, and it's also anti-inflammatory. And kale is part of the cabbage family—all of which contain colon cancer-preventing nutrients, plus kale boosts our metabolism and helps us lose weight. Raising our own greens in your yard, or in pots inside, or having organic greens delivered to our door by organic farmers is super inexpensive.
Health Benefits of Organic Brown Rice
Brown rice is full of vitamins, minerals, and fiber that are not found in white rice. Organic brown rice is high in fiber, and antioxidants, and releases sugars slowly, prevents diabetes, makes great baby food, and prevents yeast infections. Also, brown rice is much higher in good fatty acids, helps with weight loss, it's a whole grain, and helps to prevent chronic disease. Brown rice is rich in selenium, helps to prevent cancer, arthritis, prevent heart disease, high in manganese for good reproductive and nervous system health. Brown rice has a low glycemic index, contains lignans that lower blood pressure and blood fats. Brown rice reduces the risk of having heart disease and strokes. Brown rice is higher in B-Vitamins, Phosphorus, Iron, Zinc, and other trace minerals... and so much more. Brown rice is a super important part of a Whole-Foods Plant-Based Diet.

Organic Beans are Life-Giving
It's been shown that those who switch to plant-based sources of nutrition, and especially fiber and protein-rich beans have a reversal of their cardiovascular challenges and premature death caused by heart attacks and strokes. Legumes are full of plant sterols which help to remove cholesterol and help with inflammation thus preventing cardiovascular disease.
One cup of beans contains up to 16 grams of total fiber and up to 7 grams of soluble fiber. This creates 70% of the daily fiber allowance we need to stay healthy and stave off heart attacks. In fact, plant-based diets not only help to prevent heart attacks in general, they even help those people who've had 1, 2, or 3 heart attacks in the past and want to keep from having another heart attack. Angiograms with people who have vascular blockages put on a whole-foods plant-based diet completely reverse their cardiovascular disease— Amazing!
There have been many studies showing that animal protein intake is directly related to diabetes. And being on a plant-based diet rich in fiber, with lots of plant-based protein, plant sterols, and lots of antioxidants (Black Beans contain more antioxidants than Blueberries) and choosing plant-based low glycemic foods can heal diabetes. The glycemic index of pinto beans is almost 39 or 39%, while white wheat flour has a glycemic index of 100 or 100% which is not good. And the total amount of grams of carbs times the glycemic index gives us the total glycemic load. A 1/2 cup of pinto beans contains 22 grams of carbs, times 39% which is the glycemic index = 9 a very low glycemic load. Thus beans are great for those who have diabetes and want to control their blood sugar and start transitioning to get off of their insulin, getting off of medications, and heal their diabetes.
Studies show that those who eat a fiber-rich diet have a much lower chance of coming down with cancer, and especially colon and rectal cancer. And beans and legumes are full of fiber and antioxidants that help to prevent and heal cancer. In fact, in laboratory studies, it's been shown that cancer can be turned on and off by just changing our diet. Cancers are activated with animal-based proteins and these cancers can be put into neutral and negated with plant-based diets. Studies such as the "China Study" show that those who eat lots of plant-based nutrition full of fiber have a much lower chance of coming down with cancer. Animal protein creates an acidic reaction it the body, while plant-based diets create an alkaline based reaction in the body.
Acid creates inflammation, and inflammation leads to disease, and sometimes that disease expresses itself as cancer. Thus eating plant-based diets rich in fiber and plant sterols such as beans is essential for great health. And beans are super inexpensive a single pound bag of dried beans can feed a person for a week.
