I’m so excited to announce a new project I have been developing– but before I explain what I’m doing, let me explain why I’m doing it…
You see, “In the United States and most Western countries, diet-related chronic diseases represent the single largest cause of morbidity and mortality.” –Origins and Evolution of the Western Diet
Translation: more people are dying as a result of the food they eat than through all other causes. Every day, nine 747s full of passengers crash into the mountainside of Heart Disease, Cancer, Diabetes, and Strokes – all diseases directly related to a poor diet. Nine 747s crashing with no survivors. Every day.
The worst part? So many of these crashes can be prevented simply by making smarter choices about food.
Something has got to change. As individuals and a society, we can’t afford to continue at this pace. This is such a catastrophic problem with such a simple, scientifically-proven solution (eat unprocessed, plant-based foods!). My hope is that the new project I’m announcing, One Ingredient Chef, can be a part of the solution.
It all started last year when I developed something called The One Ingredient Diet – a simple, unprocessed response to a world of overly-manufactured foods. The “diet” basically says that everything you eat should start out as one whole ingredient. It’s so simple, but so powerful.
But… are we just talking about munching on celery for the rest of our lives? No way! As I started to experiment with this way of eating, I was shocked to discover that the ‘real’ food I began cooking was some of the most delicious I had ever eaten. I fell in love with cooking and food like never before. Healthy food tasting bland? It’s a myth. Whole-food, plant-based cooking can be insanely satisfying and delicious.
Now, I just want to share what I’ve learned about cooking in a way that can contribute to this dismal food crisis we face…
I’m taking that mission to OneIngredientChef.com, a cooking blog built around a healthy-eating movement. The recipes I teach you how to cook are simple, plant-based, “one ingredient” (unprocessed), and incredibly delicious.
The One Ingredient Diet is my message. Delicious food is my medium.
I’ve never been so excited to bring a much-needed service into the world and I’m grateful to have found something I enjoy so much. This is going to be epic and I hope to have you right there with me.
How you can help…
Obviously, this is a completely different path than BlogAndrew, but helping people live healthier and more satisfying lives is something I care so deeply about and I would love to have your support. If you’re interested in delicious food and healthy eating, here are a few things that might interest you:
- Download my manifesto. It’s a free 16-page guide that explains how the way we eat is making so many of us sick, and how a whole-food, unprocessed diet can change this.
- Cook something! My goal isn’t for you to just follow the message, I want to help you actually cook better food! Try making a recipe with just whole, fresh ingredients and see what happens.
- Connect. Social media is a big part of One Ingredient Chef. You can Like the Facebook Page, follow me on Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, and Google+.
- Share. If your friends/followers might like to hear about this project, let them know! A Tweet or Facebook Share of One Ingredient Chef would mean a lot.
I appreciate any help in getting this project off the ground and I look forward to seeing you there!
