Over the past few months I’ve watched my loved ones suffer from heart attacks, bypass surgeries, diabetes and the pain of gout – all diet related issues. Fortunately they are all doing fine for now, but I think it’s time to start making some serious life changes. Diabetes and bypass surgeries have already taken lives from my family and I’m going to do everything I can to make sure that doesn’t happen again. Specifically, this blog is inspired by my Dad, Uncle Frank, Uncle George and Aunt Suzie – your health is very important to me and it would be my pleasure to introduce you to a healthier way of life.
Also, far too often eating healthy is put on the back burner for those who are struggling financially. I’m hoping that this blog will eliminate any excuses about not being able to afford a plant-based diet. There was a time in my life where my dad and I ate chili from a can and hot dogs everyday. I cherish those memories and I think that a little struggle builds character, but I don’t think you need to compromise your health to save money.
I’m completely thrilled about writing for this blog, being inspired by the other talented contributors, and most of all, hearing from any readers who’d like to chat with me about tasty plant-based food.
