Like many of you, I have been searching for years for a food plan that optimizes my health, and also allows me to enjoy my favorite foods. For decades I battled high cholesterol and blood sugars with little success. I remember saying to a friend that, if I just knew what to eat to make myself healthy again, I would do it. Then a close family member was diagnosed with cancer and I became even more motivated to find a food plan that improved our health. I was lucky enough to take a class offered by my medical providers called Health and Wellness with a Whole-Food, Plant-Based Lifestyle. The doctors who taught the class had all been on this food plan for years. They showed us a plethora of research and data in support of the health benefits of the whole food, plant based diet.
I have been eating a wholesome, plant-based diet for years now and have lost weight and improved my health. I can run 3 miles a few times a week and I can do pushups and sit-ups. These are all things I never thought I would be able to do again. I don’t crave sugar or have daily highs and lows, and I eat three meals and three snacks a day. I enjoy my food and enjoy cooking it and sharing it with family and friends. I would not go back to my old way of life and my old body for anything.
I feel so blessed to have finally found this way of eating and I want to share it with you and show you how to cook these foods and change your life. This is the cookbook I wish I’d had when I was transitioning to wholesome, plant-based eating!
After all, the most important thing in your life is your health!
