Less Meat, More Plants For Healthier Richmond Kids The meat-heavy Standard American Diet (SAD) is, well, sad. Richmond diets high in meat and low in plants are the reason we have higher rates of heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. If you have been eating the SAD diet for the past 30 years, you probably ought to get your cholesterol checked.

How can we help our Richmond kids eat more live foods? One of the best ways is to grow them yourself.

You can plant a garden in a yard, in containers on a deck or patio, or even in pots indoors. I have seen each of these types of gardens in my Richmond neighborhood.

Your garden can be pesticide and hormone free. Your kids will have fun planting, weeding, and harvesting their own ‘crops’. Our children don’t need to grow up believing that carrots and spinach come from the produce section at their nearest Richmond grocery store.

My family is trying to eat less meat and more plant-based foods. I also sell a fantastic antioxidant plant-based product. For more information on my kids favorite health food, call me today at 604.943.8598.
