Almost every day, I am asked how I manage to get an average of 17 portions of vegetables and fruit per day into my all-natural, nutrient-dense diet. I eat between 10 and 20 servings of veg EVERY day, averaging out in a typical week to 14 or 15 vegetables per day, plus 2 or 3 pieces of fruit per day.
Look at these meals -
- eggs and greens, loaded with broccoli, rainbow chard, kale, dandelion greens and spinach. Read more

MND on holiday!!
‘Team MND’ recently took a holiday - a week hiking in the French Alps. We rented a small and very basic apartment and went hiking every day, which was great fun. I’ve not got time to write an extensive trip review, and I don’t suppose you want to read it anyway! So I’ll stick to the relevant and interesting stuff.
We hiked for 5 days, covering between 11 and 17 miles per day, and climbing an average of 4500 to 7000 feet per day. On average, we spent about 10 hours out on the hills each day, and our average daily mileage was 14 miles, and 6000 feet of ascent, 6000 feet of descent. Read more
This is important.
YOU REALLY NEED TO READ THIS.
It you have ever been prescribed statins, or if someone you love is taking statins, you DEFINITELY need to invest half an hour of your day into reading this post and watching this important and educational video.
This is a fascinating watch, well worth 18 minutes of your life.
I posted a slightly controversial post on our very active MND Facebook page the other day, in a nutshell I was saying “We seem to have more medical science and nutrition knowledge and qualified experts than ever these days, yet in general the whole of society is fatter and sicker than they have ever been before. Are we getting lost in the detail, buried in science, digging too deep and missing the bigger picture? Is all that science being hijacked by companies trying to sell us stuff, supplements, compression clothing, training programs and exercise equipment? Maybe all we need is to get back to nature, use some common sense, live more naturally and shun some of the endless modern inventions.” I have spoken extensively about this here: http://mothernaturesdiet.tv/2014/09/01/mnd-tv-episode-1/ That was the thrust of my post - but it’s a highly relevant thought to keep in your mind as you watch this video and read this post.

Truth That Lasts: David Newman at TEDxColumbiaEngineering: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UCk_vTkS6bU
The first 6 minutes Dr Newman explains how “scientific research” showing truly miniscule results, really imperceptible results that actually aren’t results at all, ends up reported in the popular media as “fact” which is “proven by science” and people believe it and spend years basing their behaviour on these reported facts.
