why go vegan

I like to stress what I call the Three Pillars of Veganism: shifting to a plant-based diet for the animals, for our health, and for the planet. People tend to lean toward one of these, but they are really inseparable issues. It's been said that the single most important thing a person can do for their health and the future of the planet is to go Vegan. 

Today we are faced with more illness and disease than ever. A Vegan diet is the first line of defense to help prevent disease and to reverse many diseases that are oftentimes life threatening. Switching to a plant-based lifestyle also reduces the footprint you leave on the planet and relieves the suffering and death of over 100 animals a year. You can learn more about all of these as we start working together.

Whether you want to transition to Veganism permanently, or integrate healthier plant-based habits into your life, I can help you take the next step. Contact me to learn more.

When Friends Ask:
Where Do You Get Your Protein?

If you don’t know where you get your protein while following a plant-food-based diet, you’re in good company. The Nutrition Committee of the American Heart Association, scientists from the Human Nutrition Research Center and Medical School at Tufts University, and registered dietitians, research nutritionists and physicians of Northwestern University, and the Harvard School of Public Health are just a few examples of “experts” you look to for advice who have the protein story wrong.
