Planning...the key to success!

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.

Three years ago, Mark and I decided to live a plant-based lifestyle... and we did it overnight.

The Protein-Combining Myth

The Protein-Combining Myth

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.

"Hi, My name is Karen and I am 63 years old. My story starts in 2013. I had high blood pressure and had a hard time finding meds I could tolerate. I was at my highest weight,167lbs. All my life I have yoyo'd up and down as much as 25-30 lbs. always to gain it back yet again. I read Joel Furmans' Eat to Live and thought, well I'll give it a try for a month, can't hurt. During that month I also started to educate myself."
