Why Transition to a Plant-based Diet?

It is about the food and the healing power it provides when you eat nutrient-dense plant-based (starch-based) food.

Did you know that many chronic illnesses can be linked to our meat, dairy and fat-laden western diet? Awful diseases such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and digestive disorders can be reduced, controlled or reversed by adopting a plant-based diet and this is based on decades of peer-reviewed scientific evidence.

I can help you achieve your health and nutrition goals. In my program I can provide customized meal plans with tasty, easy-to-fix recipes, provide a diet analysis, show you how to read food labels and grocery shop for healthy alternatives. I even provide cooking classes! I can help you make the transition to a healthier lifestyle!

If you’re tired of the status quo and looking for a different approach using nutrient-dense food that have no negative side-effects, only benefits. And, if you are ready to make a change to a healthier diet to live longer with a better quality of life, help you with healthy weight loss, and reduce your risk of many chronic diseases, then call 303.944.4172, or email me for a free half-hour consultation.

Forks over Knives Trailer

The feature film Forks Over Knives examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting animal-based and processed foods. The idea of food as medicine is put to the test. Throughout the film, cameras follow “reality patients” who have chronic conditions from heart disease to diabetes. Doctors teach these patients how to adopt a whole-foods plant-based diet as the primary approach to treat their ailments—while the challenges and triumphs of their journeys are revealed.
