Eating For Health                                                                          

IMG_0225This blog is a labour of love and my way of sharing just how important it is to eat in a way that will give your body the nutrients (building blocks) to allow it to efficiently repair and heal itself and thus provide you with long term health.
This site will also furnish you with valuable information based on well researched studies that show the amazing power of food for both good and ill and help dispel some of the food and health myths that have become so ingrained in our thinking.
Hopefully you will find this out for yourself as you try some of the delicious recipes that I will publish on a regular basis.
I would love to hear from you with any comments, favourite recipes, questions/answers and any gems of information that you come across. So don’t be shy, just post a message on this site or contact me by email.

I look forward to hearing from you.
Paul Lamb

    Hi Paul. The recipes look great! Keep up the great work, Julia! Thank you for sharing your insight and valuable information.

    • Thanks Chie. Much appreciated.
      My aim was to try to do a recipe a day for at least the first few weeks but I’m finding that some recipes I try, though very nutritious, taste very bland and so don’t fit my criteria to put into the blong.

    Christine Poyser says thank you for the book and she’ll call you this weekend. She told me you had a vegan blog up and we managed to track you down through the powers of Google. It’s looking really good, lots of hits already!

    • Thanks Chris and Christine. The China Study really is an amazing book with scientifically proven conclusive evidence that the major causes of many of the chronic health conditions that we have come to accept as the inevitable result of aging are in fact due to excessive consumption of animal protein along with the minimal consumption of whole-food, plants.
      Start off by reading the 7 page Introduction, published in this blog, as it will give you the confidence in the methodology used in the study as well as Professor Campbell himself and enthuse you to continue reading in greater detail.

    Paul, this is awesome! I love fellow bloggers getting the message out there!

  4. Informative article, just what I was looking for.

    Angina is also called as angina pectoris and this gives you chest pains which are very painful and can cause lot of stress. This pain is mainly due to myocardial ischemia which means lack of daily quota of blood and oxygen supply to the heart muscle. The reason for lagging behind in supply is mainly due blockages in one or more arteries of the heart.This pain is mainly felt as an uncomfortable pressure, heaviness, squeezing of the muscles, tightening and the continuous ache. This pain is mainly felt in the breastbone and branches out in areas like the neck, jaw, thigh, arms, back, shoulder and sometimes in rare incidents may also occur in teeth.-

    • Thanks Edda.
      This is an extract from Dr Joel Fuhrman’s book, “Eat to Live” where he mentions numerous other chronic health conditions, as well as Angina, which are caused by the food we eat and lifestyle we live;

      Food Is the Cure

      Patients are told that food has nothing to do with the diseases they develop. Dermatologists insist that food has nothing to do with acne, rheumatologists insist that food has nothing to do with rheumatoid arthritis, and gastroenterologists insist that food has nothing to do with irritable and inflammatory bowel disease. Even cardiologists have been resistant to accept the accumulating evidence that atherosclerosis is entirely avoidable. Most of them still believe that coronary artery disease and angina require the invasive treatment of surgery and are not reversible with nutritional intervention. Most physicians have no experience in treating disease naturally with nutritional excellence, and some physicians who don’t know about it are convinced it is not possible.

      Dietary-Caused Illnesses with High Prevalence:

      Acne, appendicitis, atherosclerosis, diabetes (adult), fibromyalgia, gout, high blood pressure, irritable bowel syndrome, macular degeneration, sexual dysfunction, allergies, asthma, constipation, diverticulosis, gallstones, headaches, hypoglycemic symptoms, kidney stones, musculoskeletal pain, stroke, angina, arthritis, colonic polyps, esophagitis gastritis, haemorrhoids, indigestion, lumbar spine syndromes, osteoporosis, uterine fibroids.

    You have a great blog here! I am not a vegan but do eat, cook & bake vegan 5x/week & I am loving it too! I also blog about it! Thanks!
    Bye bye for now from a foodie from Belgium!

    • Thanks Sophie. Although I am technically a Vegan I prefer to use the term, “Whole-Food, Plant Based” for my diet as there are many Vegans with very poor diets. A person eating nothing but sugar, processed white flour based products such as pasta and bread with deep fried chips and tomato sauce, is a total Vegan, but boy what health problems they would be storing up for themselves. Eating for health and understanding what foods are healthy and what are not is the key.
      Keep eating well.

      • Sophie33 says:

        I also eat whole foods, but not all plant based!🙂

      • From everything that I have read (Eat to Live by Joel Fuhrman and The China Study by Colin Campbell plus others) if you keep your calories derived from animal products under 10% of total calorie intake and derive the rest from fruit and veggies you’re diet is about as good as you can make it.

  7. alana Morgan says:

    Hi paul. i am interested in having a healthy lifestyle but i am always hungry.

    Ps. i have recently quit smoking for the 3rd time.
    I look forward to hearing back from you.
    Kind regards

    • Thanks for getting in touch Alana. Dr Fuhrman states that if you eat a diet rich in vegetable matter, especially leafy greens, your stomach is filled with food that has a high nutrient density and is high in fibre content and bulk and when this happens signals are sent to the brain to say that you are full. Unlike meat which is packed full of calories but has low nutrient density, no fibre and little bulk, so that even though your calorie needs have been met the signals to the brain say eat more your still hungry.
      You may also be experiencing detox symptoms that you are interpreting as hunger.
      All I can say is that if you hang in there your body will be forever greatful and your health will eventually improve out of sight.
      Please keep in touch as I would like to support you through this as much as possible if that is ok with you.
      Sending you healing thoughts.

    Hello! This is my first visit to your blog! We are a group of volunteers and starting
    a new project in a community in the same niche.
    Your blog provided us useful information to work on. You have done a extraordinary job!

  10. I absolutely agree with you that you don’t have to sacrifice taste to eat healthfully. Celeste🙂

  11. Louey says:

    I’m wondering if anyone has tried your life-changoing loaf of bread with Quinoa flakes instead of Oats? If so, could you send along the recipe, please.

  12. whatarawkus says:

    Thanks Paul! I found you.

  13. Such an inspiration Paul.

  14. Suze says:

    Damn awesome you amazing man

  15. Allan Hughes says:

    Hi Paul I have to confess I am not fully vegan yet. I started to eat mackerel salad once a week to get my omega3. Although it is tasty, I would prefer a veggie alternative that is not too expensive. I am thinking along the lines of say an olive/caper tapenade. Do you have a recipe that I could try that could replace the fish? Allan

    • Allan Hughes says:

      Hi Paul Thanks for you good advice. I have not been able to find the seaweed product yet but I will order it online. I wonder if you have tried using Cavalo Nero. It is quite a robust green veg and can take more cooking than spinach or chard. al

  16. Pau Lamb says:

    You should be able to find the Nori sheets in any supermarket Allan. They will be in the section that deals with sushi as they are the sheets that wrap the sushi rice and its filling.
    No I havent used the Cavalo Nero. Not sure we can get it here. I use Kale almost exclusively as my main green leafed veggie, especially in my daily green smoothy.
    Just as an aside, see if you can find Amla powder in your Indian grocer. It is dried Indian Gooseberries which have the highest concentration of antioxidants than just about any food on earth. Its off the charts. I use it in my green smoothy. usually about a desert spoonfull. Extremely benefical.and very cheap.

  17. Allan Hughes says:

    Hi Paul I will look out for both the Nori sheets and the Amla powder. Thanks Cavalo Nero, I am sure you are aware of, is a type of kale. I have seen it growing in an allotment nearby, here in Glasgow! I think I have found an alternative to my fish salad. Instead of fish, I used feta cheese, black olives, capers and chick peas. Very tastey and also filling! However I am looking forward to including the Nori sheets into the mix. Al
