Did Hallelujah Acres Start A Trend… 23 Years Ago?

When Hallelujah Acres was founded on February 12, 1992 — promoting a plant-based diet — we received a lot of criticism from the Christian community.

Fast forward 23 years and that idea isn’t so crazy anymore.

In fact, we would like to think that we have had a big part to play in the wide acceptance of a plant based diet today.

This past week there were several newspaper articles promoting what we have been proclaiming these past 23 years and I thought you might be interested in reading a few of them:

Two New York Public Schools adopted a 100% vegetarian menu and the results are showing improved test scores and longer attention span!

In another article, obese children experienced profound health changes in four weeks by eating a plant-based vegan diet!

And then there was this most recent article issued by the U.S. Government titled “New Diet Proposals: The article begins with:”Eat Your Veggies” and continues by saying: “New dietary guidelines for Americans should aim to get people to eat more vegetables, less fat and salt and to exercise more.”

The report goes on to say:

“On average, the U.S. diet is low in vegetables, fruit, and whole grains and too high in calories, saturated fat, sodium, refined and added sugars … a diet higher in plant-based foods, such as vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes, nuts and seeds and lower in calories and animal-based foods is more health-promoting.”

Why has it taken man so long to accept what God has been telling us from the beginning in Genesis 1:29:

“AND GOD SAID, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing (VEGETABLE) seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the FRUIT of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat (FOOD).”

It has been almost 40 years since I changed my diet from an animal flesh and dairy-based diet to a plant-based diet and I attribute my excellent health at the age of 81 to this diet change.

In fact, I haven’t experienced a cold or the flu even one time since making that diet change almost 40 years ago.

    Reverend Malkmus…You must tell Oprah about Barley Max. Her appetite will become controllable when she feeds the CELLS of her body well. Everytime my appetite got a little out-of-hand, I would do a short fast with Barley Max. It fed my CELLS so well, my appetite would begin to TELL ME what I REALLY needed to eat! Now, I have the Berry Barley Max every morning. My weight is completely under control without struggle.
