It’s naturally low glycemic, high protein, low salt, plant-based with lots of grains, seeds, and nuts. Most of all, it’s utterly delicious. It’s what so many diets strive to be but fall short of for lack of context. This is a diet that connects us all to nature and to each other in the most direct and profound ways.”
