One of the greatest benefits of transitioning from the SAD – Standard American Diet to a intentional plant-based eating protocol is the consciousness that comes with making this type of change.
Keep in mind, this is NOT about being on a diet. Plant based eating is about a way of life that goes beyond a “quick fix” diet. Plant-based eating is a lifestyle choice.
We are a society obsessed with dieting. As author Lana Nelson writes, Our Obsession with Dieting is Killing Us.
Lana is a food intuitive and teaches her clients how to tap into the subconscious mind to uncover what your body wants and needs. By tapping into the subconscious you are moving into conscious (mindful) eating.
Conscious eating is simply being fully “awake” with the food choices you make. It is the practice of cultivating an open-minded awareness of how the food we choose to eat affects our body, feelings, mind, and all that is around us.
When eating consciously, we are fully present with a level of awareness unmatched by how a great many people eat.
Most people have lost sight of the fact that by stuffing food into their body to satisfy a short term need they are among the walking dead.
With disease and obesity dramatically increasing by the day, it’s amazing how many people have not connected the dots between what they are stuffing in their mouth to the way they feel and the diseases that they are subjecting themselves to.
On the flip side, conscious eating allows us to live more fully taking full responsibility for the quality of our life and health.
The top benefits of conscious (mindful) eating are:
- Stress reduction
- Increased enjoyment with food.
- Easier digestion.
- Reduction of bad calories
- Weight release
- Less binge eating.
- Control food instead of it controlling you.
- Being in the present with the way you eat
Greatest Benefit of Releasing Animal Products
By choosing to release all animal and dairy consumption and intentionally adding in foods that support a whole food, plant-based diet, you are moving into a highly conscious way of eating thus creating a healthier life.
“People who maintain a healthy lifestyle and eat nutritious food tend to have fewer doctor visits and hospital stays which lowers their overall health care costs. Plus, healthier people can engage in life more fully.” https://www.momsmeals.com/blog/for-healthcare-professionals/the-domino-effect-of-nutrition-on-health-and-wellbeing/
The energy of food
Everything you consume has energy attached to it. Food is a vehicle for carrying energy, both good and bad. The higher the vibration of the foods you eat, the more this will impact you in a positive way.
Conversely, foods that have death, pain, fear, and anguish attached to them, the lower your energy when you consume these foods. Animal and dairy products are wrought with negative energy. If you’ve done any research on factory farming, it wouldn’t take much to see that consuming animal and dairy would have a very negative impact on your energy.

When you consume foods filled with nutrients you give yourself the ability to live more fully. You balance your moods, have more energy, and overall, live a higher quality of life.
Obesity and Disease on the Rise
You don’t have to look far to see how unhealthy people are. With obesity, diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, and other commonly accepted conditions on the rise due to the SAD way of eating, doesn’t it make sense to do whatever you can to take control of your health?
There is more evidence every day that a whole food, plant-based diet is producing miraculous results for people of all ages.
Take my friend Brian Rodgers. At only age 44, Brian was suddenly diagnosed with SIX life-threatening diseases and labelled morbidly obese.
While determined to beat death, he refused gastric bypass surgery and instead relied on his 30 years’ BBQ experience and his unique knowledge of plant-based food to literally heal himself. Miraculously, within just 6 short months, Brian was off all medications, reversed all six diseases and had lost an astonishing 120 pounds! He did this through conscious eating and a plant-based eating protocol.

Brian’s experience is not unlike many others who gave up meat and dairy in favor of a whole foods diet. There is more proof every day that choosing a diet filled with plant-based foods can literally turn one’s health around.
Increase Your Vibration
A plant-based diet is not only filled with nutrients, it’s a high vibration diet. One that can literally raise your consciousness and help with your overall awareness of the direct correlation between your choice of foods and your physical, emotional and spiritual energy. Everything is interconnected, and everything IS energy.
What you consume has a direct result on your quality of life. You can make choices that feel good in the short term and satisfy a food addiction, leaving you empty, frustrated and feeling emotionally empty, or you can become conscious, right here, right now, that everything you put in your mouth has a benefit or consequence.
The choice is up to you. Every choice you make creates a quality of life that either allows you to live fully… or not. It’s up to you.
