"I see about twenty to thirty new patients per week, and I always ask them, “Which has more protein - one hundred calories of sirloin steak or one hundred calories of broccoli?” When I tell them it’s broccoli, the most frequent response I get is “I didn’t know broccoli had protein in it.” I then ask them, “So where did you think the calories in broccoli come from? Did you think it was mostly fat, like an avocado, or mostly carbohydrate, like a potato?”
People know less about nutrition than any other subject. Even the physicians and dietitians who attend my lectures quickly volunteer the answer, “Steak!” They are surprised to learn that broccoli has about twice as much protein as steak."

"When we feel a deep longing for a more inspired and healthy life, it is a very sure sign that we are called to seriously take note of, and attend to, our soul, to heal our exhaustion, to mature our character, and to discover life’s deeper layers of renewal, meaning and direction."
