An Interview With Jeff Sandborn

Jeff Sandborn lived a pretty average lifestyle following the motto “everything in moderation”. That is why he was surprised to find himself being flown by helicopter to a hospital at the age of 46, where doctors put two stents in him. He was only slightly overweight (35 - 40 lbs), had only slightly high LDL (112-118 mg/dL), and ate everything in moderation. The surgery definitely got his attention and he began making small improvements with his eating habits. Fast forward 2 ½ years and Jeff found himself only slightly healthier.

A Testimonial From PlantPure Challenge Winner Pauline Samual

"My name is Pauline Sumual and I am 22 years old currently residing in Chicago, IL. About a month ago I was watching a number of documentaries on Netflix associated with American's daily consumption of food and what they put in their bodies. One of them was PlantPure Nation.

After watching these documentaries they all started to make sense...

Annette Fowler's Plant-Based Transformation Story

"My name is Annette Fowler. I have struggled with my weight from the age of 13. I was led to believe that an obese life was my destiny. With that belief, I never truly tried to lose weight, as I thought it was not a possibility for me. I spent my teen years steadily growing through the high 100s. The last weight I remember being was 167lbs when I was in grade 10. After that, I never really weighed myself unless I went to the Dr's, and even then, the weight was recorded and never mentioned...

Building School Lunches

Building school lunches was an important task when getting our kids off to school.  As busy working parents, we came up with a variety of simple ideas that were quick and easy to put together.  Eventually the kids took over and have since reminded me of the ‘formula’ I used when teaching them to build their own lunches.

"7 years ago I was have trouble when running (I've always been a runner and have run 5 marathons). I went to my doctor who sent me to the hospital for an angiogram. Turns out I had one artery that was 80% blocked. I received 2 stents in 2 different arteries and was put on cholesterol medication, blood thinners, high blood pressure medicine and a baby aspirin. I always thought I ate well so I didn't understand how this could happen. Unfortunately what I thought was a good diet was pretty bad...
