A PlantPure Testimonial: Eloise Chocalas

The story of Eloise’s plant-based transition is highly unusual because throughout her life, quite a few physicians suggested she look into a vegan diet before she actually made the change. Her story begins in the 1980s when she was working in Silicon Valley and was a self-described type A personality. At 122 lbs., she looked healthy on the outside, but had high cholesterol.  Interestingly, her physician recommended that she change over to a vegetarian diet to control her cholesterol. At the time, Eloise did not take his advice, but later wished she could turn back the clock to transition to a plant-based lifestyle much sooner.

2019: The Year of the Vegan!

I do not consider myself to be a trendsetter. In fact, I am typically the last person to adopt a new fashion—usually right before it goes out of style! So when I reviewed the recent statistics associated with plant-based eating, you can imagine my surprise when I realized I really am a trendsetter!   The trends around the vegan/plant-based movement are nothing short of amazing. 31% of Americans now practice meat-free days each week. Last year, 51% of chefs in the U.S. added vegan options to their menus. 6% of Americans now identify themselves as vegan, which is an increase of 600% in just three years! Fourteen years ago, when my family and I began our transition to a plant-based lifestyle,...

A PlantPure Seminar Testimonial: Annie Oliver

When January 1st, 2018 rolled around, Annie Oliver knew she had to make a change to improve her health.  Like many women, Annie had struggled with her weight for years, gaining and then losing the same 25 pounds.  She tried the Paleo diet and lost 30 pounds, but unfortunately, she regained the weight. The thought of eating all of that meat and cheese again literally made her feel ill.   Two things happened that helped guide her to a solution.  Annie’s sister had recently changed to a vegan lifestyle and, as a result, had lost weight and felt great.  At about the same time, she saw an ad for the PlantPure Health and Weight Loss pilot program in her local newspaper...

A PlantPure Testimonial: Warren Corporate Jumpstart Challenge

There is nothing like a little friendly competition to motivate people!  That is just what three Warren, Pennsylvania companies did to improve their employees’ health.  A few months ago, the Healing America tour came to Warren and we had the opportunity to meet with these companies.   Not one of the companies had management staff that were already plant-based; however, they were open to new ideas to improve their employees’ health and wellbeing.

A PlantPure Testimonial: Marge Lieblein

Ever wonder how you can optimize the aging process?  We interviewed Marge Lieblein to gain her insight on this topic.  Marge is 84 and lives a vibrant, active life. She began transitioning to a plant-based lifestyle 14 years ago when her daughter started peppering her with articles, books, and documentaries on the benefits of a plant-based diet.  Reading the research influenced her to transition to this lifestyle and continues to reinforce her motivation to stay plant-based. The transition was slow, but steady, and today she describes herself as a “mostly plant-based eater”.  When asked if her plant-based diet has affected aging, she responds with a resounding “Definitely!” She and her husband were very social during their 40s, 50s, and 60s;...

Nelson's 10/19 Update

Last week, we finally heard mention in the mainstream press of the connection between food and climate change.  The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released a report on climate change and noted this important connection, which major media outlets picked up. The IPCC argued in their report that we have just over a decade left to make the transformational changes required to avert catastrophic climate change.  As some climate scientists have pointed out since the issuance of the report, they built their argument on conservative assumptions that excluded uncertain but very important feedback loops. On the flip side, while noting the food-climate connection (a good thing), they understated the power of our food choices to mitigate climate change.  In...

Nelson's 10/5/18 Update

On November 1, the nonprofit PlantPure Communities is holding its annual Party with a Purpose event in NYC.  Anyone is welcome to attend. My father, Dr. T. Colin Campbell, will start off the evening with some discussion about the importance of grassroots action to promote the message of plant-based nutrition, and then I will follow with some discussion about how we can do what he suggests.  Executive Director Jody Kass will finish the presentation segment with a short update of recent progress by PlantPure Communities.  Once the presentations are done, we will have a lively Q & A session. If you are interested, you can find more detail here. Much has happened since our last event a year ago.  The Pod network...
