ABOUT BREN
 

"eating lightly" means bringing light into our bodies...




... what we eat

can bring LIGHT or DARK to our cells.

Food that has very recently been alive in the fresh air and sunlight can be called light-giving food. People thrive on a diet of wholesome fresh food.

The average Westerner lives on a diet of fried, fatty, sweet and highly processed foods, with a large proportion of meat and meat products. I call them “dark foods” and statistics now show that our health as a nation has never been worse with cancer and heart disease the number one killers.

I can eat a rainbow!

WHITE LIGHT contains all the colours of the spectrum and an exciting project is to eat a Rainbow of food each day!

The better our food looks, colour-wise, the better it tastes.

Try it and see for yourself: next time you make a meal pay attention to which colour sits next to which and wait for your family or guests to say, “That looks delicious.”

Bring colours into your life and you invite better health to come along too! Fresh fruit and vegetables are the very best way to introduce more light into our bodies.

Here are some colourful food suggestions:

  • RED tomatoes, peppers, strawberries
  • ORANGE carrots, apricots, turnips - and of course oranges!
  • YELLOW bananas, lemons, sweetcorn
  • GREEN peas, spinach, kiwi fruits, leeks, courgettes
  • BLUE berries, grapes, plums
  • PURPLE broccoli, beetroot, blackberries, red onion

veggy basics


All the nutrients you need can be easily obtained from a well-balanced vegetarian diet. In fact, research shows that a vegetarian diet is far healthier than that of a typical meat-eater.

As a general rule, as long as you eat a variety of foods including grains, fruit, vegetables, beans, pulses, nuts or seeds, a small amount of fat, with or without the dairy products, your diet should be healthy and you will be getting all the nutrients you need.

For new and old veggies alike, here’s some useful information for reference...

Nutrients are usually divided into five classes: Proteins, Carbohydrates, Fats (including oil), Vitamins and Minerals.

All are important to our well-being, although they are needed in varying quantities, from 250g of carbohydrates a day, to less than two micrograms of vitamin B12.

But every one of these essential food ingredients may be obtained from non-animal sources.

did you know?

Medical research has shown that on average, a lifelong vegetarian visits the hospital 22 per cent less often than an average meat-eater

it's a fact!

A study conducted over 13 years by Oxford University concluded that vegetarians were 40 per cent less likely to suffer from certain cancers. Vegetarians are also 50 per cent less likely to suffer from gall stones and less likely to suffer from diet-related diabetes.

Fresh whole food has recently been growing in sunlight. When we eat food which is absolutely fresh, we automatically nourish ourselves with ‘earth energy’. If we continuously feed ourselves on ‘dead’ foods like meat and refined, processed food we deny our body the essential ingredient of light that we get from foods which rely upon light to grow.

full spectrum light contains a rainbow

Have you noticed how oil spilt in a puddle creates a rainbow of colour? Well oil in our diet allows full spectrum light to enter our cells. EFAs are not called Essential Fatty Acids for nothing! Miraculously Omega oils bring light to our cells as well as a host of other health benefits, from reducing depression to helping our brains function better.Conditions found to improve with the addition of EFAs in the diet are, heart disease, osteoporosis, Altzheimer's, deafness, dementia, psychiatric disorders and many many more. If you don't eat a lot of fish then buy a good quality supplement.
