Living the plant-based lifestyle

Our Autumn 2021 issue contains more great food recipes than ever.

In this issue, you will discover how to make a simple flatbread with only two ingredients. Innes Hope presents a delicious buttercup dip, and Diana Noonan explains the value of the sandwich press – whole food eaters shouldn’t be without one, she says.

This issue is probably our most detailed yet.

Should you be gluten-free? Dr Michael Greger talks about non-celiac gluten sensitivity and explains why you might not be one of the 99 per cent of people who are not sensitive to gluten. If that’s the case, he provides some easy to follow advice on what to do if you suspect you might be gluten sensitive.

Whole Food Living magazine is all about food and the lifestyle that surrounds it. Not only does it contain lots of plant-based recipes, it also contains personal recovery stories on how some people have changed their lives by changing their diet. 

In this issue, young mother and social media influencer Taylor Toney explains why she became whole food plant-based.

After losing an amazing 32kg over eight months, she says she “highly recommends this lifestyle to anyone who wants to reclaim their health and be at their desired weight.”

For Taylor and her mother, who is also on the same journey, the WFPB diet has “reversed all of our health problems,” she says.

But, when it comes to fully understanding all the benefits whole food eating has to offer, probably one of the most contentious concerns centres around its exclusion of oil.

In a detailed article in this issue, Melbourne’s Dr Malcolm Mackay explores why he labels oil ‘junk food’. As he explains, olive oil, coconut oil, and other vegetable oils are processed foods that do not support good health.

On his website, he presents an extensive list of peer-reviewed studies to back his case and leaves little room for doubt on how oil affects our arteries.

And while we’re on the subject of references, don’t forget to check out our own online reference pages which often contain relevant videos to subjects written about throughout our magazines. The Autumn Issue References contain an extensive list of peer-reviewed studies on gluten as well as videos on The China Study and bowel cancer.

For many, the WFPB movement had its origins in this part of the world, with the arrival of Dr Caldwell Esselstyn on a speaking tour over ten years ago. In Aotearoa, he spoke on Radio New Zealand to interviewer Kim Hill in November 2010. On page 14 of this issue, Radha Sahar explains her part in making this happen.

And, in this issue, we focus down on two steps you can take to reduce your colorectal cancer risk.

On both sides of the Tasman, bowel cancer has become a serious problem. It is the second most common type of cancer in Australia, and New Zealand has one of the highest rates of bowel cancer in the world.

Overall, Whole Food Living magazine shows how easily you can make a huge variety of plant-based dishes and explains why you will become healthier when you eat them.
