PlantPure's Culinary Philosophy
PlantPure Culinary Philosophy
"There is a school of thought in the plant-based community that salt and sugar, as well as nuts, avocados, and other plant foods high in natural fat, should never be consumed. We do not subscribe to this strict restriction."
"Biology is complex — infinitely so. What matters most is not the presence of calcium in milk, but the ‘wholistic’ (“w” has been added to ‘holistic” intentionally) effects of milk on the body."
"The only ingredient we advocate avoiding as much as possible is added oil."
This statement was reviewed and approved by our science advisor, Dr. T. Colin Campbell.

If you are on medication and are changing to a whole food, plant-based diet, you should discuss with your healthcare provider the changes that you are making in your diet and how these changes may require an adjustment in medication dosage. It is important that you work with your doctor to monitor your condition and medication dosage during your change of dietary practices.

Biology is complex — infinitely so. What matters most is not the presence of calcium in milk, but the ‘wholistic’ (“w” has been added to ‘holistic” intentionally) effects of milk on the body. Likewise, what matters most with plant foods high in fat, such as nuts and avocados, is the way they are utilized in context by the body, and research is showing these plant foods to be beneficial in averting chronic health conditions and improving vitality and wellness. We do not advocate eating more than a modest amount of these high-fat plant foods — for example, just a handful of nuts with your oatmeal or cereal in the morning, or half an avocado with your salad for lunch — but we need these foods in our diet.
