The plant-based diet, or simply the desire to add more plants to our plates is here to stay. There is simply too much evidence supporting the health benefits of this way of eating, not to mention, every time you turn around someone else has reversed their type II diabetes, lowered their cholesterol, stopped taking many of the meds they've been on for years, etc. We all have to start somewhere (good heavens there is a lot of information out there now!) and we must all go through our "firsts". This means our first holiday! Take a breath. You've got this.

I create recipes for the plant-based beginner and I'm honored VegWorld Magazine has chosen a few of my favorites to share with their readers. It's exciting!!

A cancer diagnosis was also the impetus for Caryn Dugan’s foray into plant-based eating in 2008. Still reeling from her father’s death from cancer 10 weeks prior, Dugan, of St. Louis, Mo., received her malignant melanoma diagnosis. Feeling sad and overwhelmed, she began reading about how to heal and prevent cancer. Dugan found several references to plant-based eating to prevent and resolve illness. At the time, she says, “I thought, from my cold, dead hands will you take my grilled chicken.”
