Coffee and Creamer

by Agile Collaborator August 21, 2018

Coffee and health is controversial for some, and not a topic I am addressing here.  However, if you want to know more about coffee and your health, you might want to check out an article by Dr. Michael Greger at https://nutritionfacts.org/topics/coffee/. Rather than addressing the health issue, this blog is about creamers!
Birthdays: Plant-Based Style

Birthdays: Plant-Based Style

by laura dietrich April 22, 2018

Staying plant-based on birthdays can be tricky!  First, if you are the parent of a child and it is their birthday, you may not want to dictate a whole food, plant-based dinner.  But, if it is you or a loved one who is already plant-based, then it is both easy and fun to create a special celebration. Here are several ideas to try:

Planning...the key to success!

Planning...the key to success!

by laura dietrich March 25, 2018

As you begin to make whole food, plant-based (WFPB) eating part of your new lifestyle, a key skill that needs to be sharpened is learning to plan.  In the past as a SAD (Standard American Diet) eater, you might have run to a drive-thru or popped a frozen pizza in the microwave when you were hungry. The problem is that these habits harm your health and well-being.

Helping Kids Try a Plant-Based Diet

Whether you were a picky eater as a child or not, chances are if you are a parent, you have dealt with the struggle of trying to get a child to eat a certain food. If your kids have grown up eating the Standard American Diet or basically any other diet besides a whole food plant-based one, chances are that they will be at least a little reluctant to try some of the new foods and this new way of eating.

Snacking is a common habit that almost everybody does. Can it be healthy? Yes! The trick is keeping our snacks unprocessed and plant-based. We often reach for things like chips, cookies, crackers, and even candy.

How to Handle Those Tough Questions From Family and Friends

by laura dietrich January 11, 2018

As you transition to a plant-based diet, you may be asked “tough” questions by your friends and family about your new way of eating. The good news is that after the transition, these questions often begin to disappear. Plus, with all of the information on the benefits of plant-based eating penetrating deeper into the mainstream, these types of questions seem to be diminishing.

Three years ago, Mark and I decided to live a plant-based lifestyle... and we did it overnight. We are so passionate about what we have learned, that we want to do our part in spreading this information. This is why we started Plant-Based University (http://www.plant-baseduniversity.com). Our hope is to help those who wish to learn and transition into the plant-based lifestyle.

"I've been a strict vegan for many years, and at first I lost a lot of weight. 
Then over the past few years, my weight crept back up197lbs to be exact.
So I'm struggling along using my fitness pal counting every calorie. Losing weight was such a struggle..."

"I lost 150 pounds and have kept it off for almost 5 years now.
Initially, I lost the weight because I did not want to be put on blood pressure medication. This helped me learn about what foods I put in my body and what foods to avoid eating in my quest to lower my blood pressure..."
The Protein-Combining Myth

The Protein-Combining Myth

by laura dietrich October 06, 2017

Recently, my daughter received all of her textbooks before heading off to college this fall.  A required class for first year students is Health.  She started reading through the book and was surprised that they said to approach a plant-based diet with ‘caution’ because you had to watch your nutrients very closely.  They also referred to the “importance of combining vegetarian proteins during a meal to get a complete protein.”  The amazing thing is that this book was published in 2015!

"Less than a year ago, at the age of 49, I was well into my second year of suffering from angina, shortness of breath, and fatigue. I used the maximum dose of nitroglycerin daily to help with the chest pain, but it didn’t improve my exercise tolerance and I was extremely limited in my day to day activities. A trip to the grocery store would require most of a day to recover from..."
