if we think raising our kids is tough with social media and gaming, imagine what our kids will face when they raise their kids with food shortages and deadly weather patterns
do cows give us milk, cheese and ice cream or do we take it from them and their calves; if we understand how food gets to our mouths, will it change our behavior? learn more...
"Some people think plant-based diet, whole foods diet is extreme. Half a million people a year will have their chests opened up and a vein taken from their leg and sewn onto their coronary artery. Some people would call that extreme."
Starting as a young athlete, then pursuing a career in medicine, and finally spending the majority of my adult life as a personal trainer (and mom of 2 boys and wife of a very active husband), I have been fascinated with the human body and on a quest to maximize health and optimize life. Little did I know 25 years ago that I would plow through a snowstorm of conflicting and confusing information on my path to the tranquil oasis provided by a life of whole food plant-based eating. The topic of food and nutrition is broad enough, and when you add compassion and the environment to the mix, it can be overwhelming. So, I hope that by providing small bits of information, you will be able to explore whatever aspects of a plant-based lifestyle interest you. It will be a journey, if you decide to take it. And, for all of you that like to try new recipes, there is a link to some of the favorites served in my house. I hope you enjoy! Brooke
