"My name is Pauline Sumual and I am 22 years old currently residing in Chicago, IL.

Annette Fowler's Plant-Based Transformation Story

by BOLD SUPPORT August 22, 2017

"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

by BOLD SUPPORT August 17, 2017

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.

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

"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...

Foods to Keep You Full

by Steph Brontman August 09, 2017

As someone who loves food and loves to eat, one of my favorite things about eating a whole food, plant-based diet is that nearly all of the foods that I can eat have a lower calorie density than their animal-based or processed counterparts. This basically means that I can eat more volume and still be eating fewer calories - a win in my book!
