In my podcast, 135: Eating You Alive The Movie, we interviewed the director and co-producers of the movie, Eating You Alive.  We heard the health benefits of eating a plant based diet, but after the interview, we had a lot of comments saying they agree that they should switch to a plant based diet, but they don't know how. So I invited Nancy Addison back to the show to talk about becoming a healthy vegetarian.

Studies show that a plant based diet is the healing diet, and whether you are a vegetarian, vegan, paleo eater, raw foodist or someone who just wants to be healthier, when you add more plant based foods (fruits and vegetables) to your diet, your health is going to benefit. Many have called this books the quintessential encyclopedia of health because it is filled with well researched nutritional information that benefits everyone.
 
You will find out why Celebrity Chef and Nutrition Expert Nancy Addison has been sought out by  Doctors from all over the world as well as celebrities and other famous people like Larry Hagman, Linda Grey, Bob Fanucci, Sir Earl Toon, Bill Booth, Beth Morgan, Suzie Humphreys, Maryann De Leo and many others.
 
How To Be A Healthy Vegetarian includes links to FREE RESOURCES and SPECIAL GIFTS for readers only.
 
Nancy Addison is the author of numerous books on health and nutrition. She travels internationally speaking to corporations, groups and schools. She has workshops and classes and is a favorite media personality because of her glowing health and her radiant personality.
 
Nancy has been nice enough to offer a sample of her book - How To Become A Healthy Vegetarian for you to check out before you buy the book.  Find out why doctors and medical professionals recommend her book to their patients.

Half of all adults in the U.S. struggle with chronic health conditions. Despite countless dollars spent on medical research and drugs to improve our health, more Americans are disabled and dying from chronic disease than ever before. Featuring leading medical experts and researchers, Eating You Alive takes a scientific look at the reasons we’re so sick, who’s responsible for feeding us the wrong information and how we can use whole-food, plant- based nutrition to take control of our health—one bite at a time.

Advocates for this nutritional approach to wellness include Suzy Amis Cameron, James Cameron, Samuel L. Jackson and Penn Jillette as well as healthcare experts Doctors Dean Ornish, Neal Barnard, John McDougall, Joel Fuhrman, Caldwell Esselstyn, Michael Greger & T. Colin Campbell.

Featuring leading medical experts and researchers, Eating You Alive takes a scientific look at the reasons we’re so sick, who’s responsible for feeding us the wrong information and how we can use whole-food, plant-based nutrition to take control of our health—one bite at a time.

If you can't wait to see a screening in your area, you can buy the movie now at this link: https://www.diginextfilms.com/projects/eating-you-alive

I also interviewed Nancy Addison who was in the movie. Nancy is a nutritional consultant, author and lecturer has helped thousands of people overcome health disorders. Her book, “How To Be A Healthy Vegetarian,” was written after years of research to find a cure for her own health problems. Frustrated with conventional medicine, she embarked on a long course of study into many different healing concepts, including ancient Chinese medicine, macrobiotics, Mediterranean cuisine, natural hygiene, raw foods and mega-supplement therapy. Incorporating the most beneficial components of each concept into her own system of health and healing, her success inspired her to share it with others.

Nancy is offering a sample of her book: How To Be A Healthy Vegetarian to all my listeners.  You can download it here  If you want to purchase the entire book it is available on Amazon*, or on Nancy's website:

Force of Nature on Clean Green Talk

"We created Force of Nature because we don’t think families should have to trade off great cleaning results for safe ingredients."

Force of Nature is a small appliance that turns tap water plus a capsule of salt, water & vinegar into a cleaner & deodorizer that powers through odors, grease, grime, oil, sticky messes and soap scum as effectively as bleach.

Melissa Lush is one of the co-founders of Force of Nature.  She heads up marketing for the company, which means she works like crazy to introduce this amazing technology of electrolyzed water to families who are trying to avoid toxic chemicals.  She is the mother of a curious little boy (messy scientist, explorer & artist) and a very mischievous border collie (who never met a cabinet door he couldn't open). When she heard about electrolyzed water and started doing some research, she couldn't believe how unsafe even so-called "natural" cleaning products were. She was shocked about how hard it was for families with allergies, asthma, babies & small children like her own to avoid harmful chemicals because of the lax oversight of cleaning product manufacturers.

Melissa’s been fortunate enough to be part of Force of Nature since the very start, figuring out how to describe the product, how it works, what it's called, what the website looks like, etc.  And definitely testing the product on everything you can imagine - her husband makes fun of her because it's her answer to just about everything! Her family is in the blog, her house is in our ads, she does all the blogging, copywriting, social media, market research, photography, ad creative - a start up in every sense!  She believes it’s a true privilege to work for a company with such a great mission - helping families to keep their homes safe from toxic chemicals.

NEW Force of Nature lets you turn salt, water & vinegar into an all-purpose cleaner & deodorizer that’s as effective as bleach with no toxic chemicals.

We have a special offer for you for listening. You can get a free product guide by clicking here and downloading.  You can also get $35 off your purchase of a new Force of Nature by using the coupon code GreenClean35

Chemical Free Cleaning. This isn’t some marketing gimmick and E-cloth is not an As Seen On TV disappointment that you hear about on the evening news - In fact,e-cloth is featured in the May issue of Real Simple and has been rated Best of the Best in three separate categories! Chemical Free Cleaning isn’t a product as much as a lifestyle change. Choosing to clean differently in order to clean better with less effort, and make your home safer by eliminating toxic chemicals.

e-cloth is just a better cloth and a better clean!

Scientifically Better

The best microfiber cloths on the market have between 90,000 and 200,000 fibers per square inch (MOST cloths being sold only have 25,000-75,000). E-cloths have 3.1 Million* fibers per inch. This is possible because they've developed a better manufacturing process – using technology to be better. Why are fibers important? The cloths are made of polyester and nylon, so they don’t “absorb” anything. Water, dirt, oil, grease, grime and even bacteria are trapped within the fibers – so the more fibers you have the better the cloth works. Think of it as millions of tiny hands grabbing onto everything on the surface of your counter-top or sink.

The cloth is also proven to remove over 99% of bacteria from a hard surface.  These cloths don’t kill bacteria, they collect bacteria from surfaces.  This is another benefit of all of those fibers – they literally scrape the surface clean at a microbial level.  The best part – when you run this cloth under hot water in your sink, all but .01% of that bacteria, dirt, oil and grease is released from the cloth down the sink.  So, there is virtually no transfer back onto clean surfaces.

A Better Clean

E-cloth is the best clean you can give your home or office.  Using an e-cloth and just water can give your home the best clean it’s ever had with less effort and expense than your current cleaning method.

E-cloth is the best solution for the tough cleaning challenges like windows, stainless steel, bathrooms, and kitchen countertops.

Your windows and mirrors be crystal clear clean and the glass is left lint-free and streak free. Your stainless steel surfaces will be smudge-free and fingerprint-free. Kitchen surfaces from counter-tops to sinks, stoves, and microwaves all clean up quickly and completely using just an e-cloth and water.

Better for your Family

 A surface cleaned with an e-cloth is free of two potentially harmful things: cleaning chemicals and bacteria. One of the scariest things ever written is this excerpt from a Columbia University College of Physicians & Surgeons study:

“Women who work at home have a 54% higher death rate from cancer than women working away from the home.” A 15 year study concluded that it is directly linked to the toxic household chemicals in the home.

The National Research Council reports that “No toxic information is available for more than 80% of the chemicals in everyday use products.” Not only do you not know what chemicals you're exposing your family to, there isn’t a way to find out.

These chemicals leave residue on every surface of the home. Eliminating them is good for you and your family. We all know why it’s important to get rid of bacteria, but the chemicals we’ve been using to kill them might be just as harmful to us.

Better for the environment

“How can a cloth made of polyester and nylon be good for the environment?” In this interview you will here the answer. E-cloths come with a 300 Wash Guarantee. You do daily cleaning with e-cloth and rinse the cloth out in the sink under hot water. Once each week, wash the cloth with your regular wash (do not use bleach or fabric softener) and they are ready for another week of cleaning. If you wash the cloth once each week, the cloths are guaranteed for about 6 years of cleaning. In six years, how many paper towels, wipes, spray cans and bottles of chemicals will you go through?

Eliminating or reducing the use of household cleaning chemicals is a major benefit to the environment. Those chemicals go down our drains and remain on surfaces in our homes. The cans and bottles they are sold in end up in our landfills forever. An e-cloth and just water avoids all of this mess.

Paper towels are also a huge burden on the environment. According to the EPA, “every day 3,000 tons of used paper towels are discarded in landfills”. It takes 51,000 trees per day to replace those used paper towels. By using an e-cloth to wipe up spills and accomplish those quick cleaning tasks, your home gets a more thoroughly cleaned surface, you save the cost of the paper towel and the waste doesn’t end up in our landfill. That is a lot of benefit from one simple change.

E-cloth really is a better cloth and a better clean. Still not convinced? Buy a Window Pack and try it. They stand behind their products 100% and if you’re not satisfied, they will refund your money.
