Letting Go of the SAD Diet
Speaker: Selam Teclu
The current Standard North American Diet, appropriately referred to as the SAD diet, consists mostly of animal products, sugar, processed foods and refined grains. This trend is partly based on our need for fast and convenient food to match our fast paced life styles. Unfortunately the SAD diet has failed to meet basic nutritional requirements to achieving a healthy body and a sound mind. Our communities’ face ever increasing incidences of diet based diseases of the mind and body, including: Cancer, High Blood Pressure, Depression, Allergies, Type II Diabetes, and ADHD, just to name a few. However, a vibrant counter trend towards healthier lifestyles has inspired many in Toronto to rethink their eating habits.
