Hidden Garden Revised Home Image 5.png

How do we break this vicious cycle. The bodies we have been given are so wondrously made and why do we not consider that we are divine in creation. No other creature on this planet is as gifted as we are. Our bodies were created by an intelligence so great that we were created to live life and not to have sickness and underlying conditions. Maybe we just do not know how to have a healthy food plan. Below I have placed the definitions and foods that are contained in healthy food plans. Why not choose one, or be creative and make your own. Whatever you decide, stick to it, you must do it.

 

Hidden Gardens Healthy Food Plans

Vegetarian food plan - contains only plants (such as vegetables, grains, nuts and fruits) and foods made from plants. However, many vegetarians do consume byproducts that do not involve the slaughter of animals. These include: eggs, dairy products, such as milk, cheese, yogurt and honey.

 

 

 

 

 

Vegan food plan - consist of avoiding or not consuming any animal products or any products that come from animals, including dairy products and eggs.

 

 

 

 

 

Mediterranean food plan - consists of vegetables, fruits, herbs, nuts, beans and whole grains. Meals are built around these plant-based foods. Moderate amounts of dairy, poultry and eggs are also central to the way of eating, as is seafood. In contrast, red meat is eaten only occasionally.

 

 

 

 

No sugar No flour food Plan - consist of meats that are not processed. Like protein, sources of fat should theoretically be free from sugar and flour. Any forms of fat in baked goods, ice cream and battered foods is not eaten. Some choose to include natural sugars such as fruit or starchy vegetables like carrots and sweet potatoes they will provide important nutrients,  such as vitamins and minerals, and they contain fiber.

 

 

 

 

 

 

A gluten-free food plan - involves excluding foods that contain the protein gluten, including wheat, rye, and barley. Avoid processed food, cereals, and grains that contain gluten. Most studies on gluten-free diets have been done on people with celiac disease. In this diet, people should eat mainly healthful whole foods, as most whole foods are naturally gluten-free.

 

 

 

 

There is no excuse, you have everything you need to have a healthy food plan or to create your own.

About 

 

 

 

Hidden Gardens was started by Artelle Gandy, who had gained a significant amount of  weight over the years, which caused many health challenges.

Artelle was sick and tired of being sick and tired!  She found supportive people in her quest to lose over 100 pounds and maintain it over the years.  This challenged her to discover the many aspects of a healthy balance in adapting nutritional changes in her lifestyle.

 

Artelle created Hidden Gardens as a sacred space that allows others to know that their birthright is complete health and wholeness.  It was developed to raise the level of  awareness and to enlightened others as to healthier food alternatives and the benefits in maintaining a balance of mind, body and spirit.

Mission

Hidden Gardens' mission and goal is to enlighten and encourage every human being that their bodies are created by a divine intelligence that knows no sickness or disease.  It is through healthy eating that we become healthy, wealthy and whole.

 

Vision

Hidden Gardens' vision is to see everyone adapt and maintain healthy eating habits that would ultimately lead to a healthier lifestyle.

Did you know these facts about Plastic...

  •   100,000 marine animals are killed by plastic bags each year

  •   You can save hundreds of dollars per year by saying goodbye to single-use plastic bottles

  •   Re-cycle and save 9,000 pounds of plastic waste from going into the landfills each year

  •   Save 25,000 miles by avoiding prepackaged foods by getting your foods fresh from your local     farmer’s market

  •  Plastic straws are the 6th most common trash item found during ocean cleanups.  The question   of whether or not plastic straws should be banned has been debated.  A plastic straw ban would   serve to reduce the number of plastic straws entering the ocean. Most plastic straws are made of   polypropylene and not accepted by most recyclers. Most plastic straws are toxic and some    carcinogenic (i.e., “cancer-causing”). 

   

Plastic bags start out as fossil fuels and end up as deadly waste in landfills and the ocean.  Fish, seabirds, sea turtles, and marine mammals can become entangled in or ingest plastic debris. Causing suffocation, starvation, and drowning.  Plastic waste kills up to a million seabirds a year.  As with sea turtles, when seabirds ingest plastic, it takes up room in their stomachs, sometimes causing starvation.  Birds often mistake shredded plastic bags for food filling their stomachs with toxic debris.  Microplastics are also consumed by people through food and in the air.  The chemicals used in the production of plastic are toxic and detrimental to the human body.  Chemicals in plastic like lead, cadmium and mercury directly can come in contact with the humans.  These toxins can cause congenital disabilities, immune system problems and childhood development issues.
