A Plant Fueled Cross Country Cycling Tour

 

Marianne Shalewa has been planning this trip for the past three years, and after meeting her boyfriend, Matt, two years ago, they decided to embark on the adventure together. After all of the planning, the adventure is finally happening in June! They will cycle from Tofino, British Columbia, to St. John’s, Newfoundland.

In general, it takes about two months to cycle across Canada, but Marianne and Matt are taking three months so they can visit Pod groups along the way. To get ready, they’ve been contacting different groups and are trying to get in touch with as many as possible. They are planning to average around 100 kilometers (62 miles) per day.  

Marianne became interested in the PlantPure Pod network after watching PlantPure Nation.  After hearing about the health benefits, especially for athletes, Marianne and Matt became motivated to spread the message. Marianne has done exercise therapy for six years, and she became certified in plant-based nutrition through e-Cornell in order to consult with clients more effectively.  

She says, “I can’t believe what I can do now as an athlete, that I could never do before.” She anticipates the journey will be challenging in terms of planning meals, but they are both up for the challenge.  

Marianne recently started the pod group Yegplant, in Edmonton, which you can visit at https://www.facebook.com/groups/1685041395090868/.  

If you’re a Pod group leader in Canada, get in touch with Marianne and Matt now via Facebook, so they can visit you along their journey!  You can follow them on their journey through Facebook, Instagram, and their YouTube channel:

Last Friday night we launched the new version of our PlantPure Entrees on Amazon, and the response has been overwhelmingly positive.  We are humbled by some of the great reviews, and are also taking note of the suggestions people have provided.  
One thing we noticed was a trend of some of our meals being delivered with seals that were not fully intact.

From Plants to Politics

I try not to be overly dramatic in my writing, but I think most of us would agree we live in troubled times. We might define these troubles differently, but most of us have this sense. Most distressing in my view, however, are not the actual problems we face, but our inability to work together to find their solutions.
