TODAY'S MESSAGE

Let the Love-Powered Diet Heal You!

Fill your plate with fiber-rich foods to help keep you full! One of fiber’s greatest attributes is its ability to tackle your appetite. Here’s how it works: In your stomach, fiber holds water, so it’s heavy enough to trick your stomach into thinking you have eaten quite a lot before you’ve eaten too many calories. High-fiber foods satisfy your appetite with fewer calories. Fiber is in beans, vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. You won’t find any fiber at all in meats, dairy products, or eggs.

A Message from Victoria Moran

As you’ll soon discover, eating a whole-foods, plant-based diet will enliven your inner love and provide peace. Spend the day looking inward and becoming aware of your unconditional love for yourself and your health. This will make a profound impact on how you treat your body and soul. Inner changes include the ability to make positive, loving food choices. No matter what your body size, choose foods that express love for yourself and the world in general, including nonhuman animals and the environment. Eat, love, and live.

Oatmeal Banana Bites

Susan Says:

Whole grains are often stripped of their fiber, fat, and protein to make them more shelf-stable in foods such as white rice and white bread. Stick to whole grains and reap the advantages of their natural goodness. Think oatmeal, brown rice, and barley!
