Consider, for a moment, the idea of installing a solar power system for your home. Maybe you’ve thought about installing it. Or at least it’s caught your attention. There seem to be benefits to installing one, right?
There are many benefits. Solar power systems for your home serve as a hedge against ever increasing utility rates. The bills are forever rising. A residential solar power system is a type of protection against continually rising electricity bills - they provide very low-cost power and put you more clearly in control.
I've come to believe that plant-based diets offer a very similar proposition.
I like coffee. Probably just as much as you do. I enjoy the alertness it brings, and the conversation it can fuel with my friends.
The downside is that coffee also makes me nervous. It’s a fine line, but once I cross my threshold, I start to get jittery and a little tight in the chest. Low-level anxiety looms on the horizon.
Luckily, I've found a couple of really nice alternatives to round out my toolkit.
I had elevated, firm expectations when I wanted to change my diet over to a plant-based program. It was go big or go home. My motivations were sky-high and I was determined to be fully, 100% plant-based, right away. I m' not sure if you can believe this, but, surprise surprise, it didn’t work out that way.
At it’s core, going plant-based is dead simple: all you have to do is eat plants. But navigating this terrain in real life presents challenges. Finding some direction and a momentum can feel elusive, especially in the beginning.
Solutions are available, however. And it starts with simplifying access to plant-based produce and dry goods.
If you watch What The Health, you can get some of the most powerful information from the Plant-Based Nutrition course I completed for only the price of a Netflix subscription. And you will spend a literal fraction of the time it took me to learn some of this information. The film is also engaging from start to finish; it's not a cardboard sandwich.
