Potatoes are a staple in my diet. They are not fattening, healthy, and provide a lot of energy (I teach cardio classes at the gym, in addition to attending a lot of intense classes – need that energy!) I also noticed that my cravings for fat and sugar declined after increasing the amount of starch […]

Both diets do not include animal products (if a “whole food plant based diet” includes animal products, it’s an 80/20 or 90/10 version – 80% plants, 20% animal product calculated by calories – OR – 80% whole food and 20% processed. Depends on the individual. Some may not call a diet that includes a fraction […]
One of the most ridiculous statements I see on a fairly regular basis is the (probable non-vegan) chastising the article about fake meat. They say it’s ridiculous to have such a product because “vegans hate meat! Why make something that’s just like meat? Why not just eat meat!” This statement is so misled (if it’s […]

One of the main reasons I am following a plant based diet is due to my father’s death from pancreatic cancer. For many years I searched for a healthful diet, and finally landed on a plant based diet.
