Vegan food and health

"There's definitely a connection between the food we eat and our physical, mental, and spiritual health," she says. 'For those who individuals who, for example, identify as Christians and read the Bible, one of the first few things in the Book of Genesis is how God created us from the dust of the Earth.

"He states that we should use food that he created from the Earth, fruits and vegetables, as food. If God who created us from the dust of the Earth, from the soil, he uses these minerals to fuel our bodies that come from Earth.

"I think that's something very profound that a lot of us can take into consideration especially for that vegan diet, that all we need is in the Earth, all we need can be found in plants - every single nutrient and mineral."
