America is getting its first vegan culinary nutrition center. The plant-based education center is opening in St. Louis, Missouri, amid growing demand for information on meat-free diets. The Center for Plant-based Living (CPBL) is headed by Caryn Dugan. Dugan is a food blogger who has become a local authority on vegan nutrition, cooking, and health. She often teaches classes and presentations and hosts a plant-based nutrition summit at Washington University.

Y98's Jill Devine has a FANTASTIC podcast, Two Kids and A Career - of which I often listen to. Why? I have no idea, but I love the way she pulls info out of her guests and truly it just seems like a party in the studio when she's conversing with her guests. When Jill asked me to be on her show, I immediately said YES!, but what the hell am I going to talk about? No kids here... Jill worked her easy magic and you'll love our convo.

The center aims to serve as a community support system for those researching or adopting a plant-based lifestyle, which consists mostly or entirely of eating vegetables, whole grains, nuts, seeds, legumes and fruits, while avoiding most animal products and processed foods. According to The China Study: The Most Comprehensive Study of Nutrition Ever Conducted by T. Colin Campbell and Thomas M. Campbell II, scientific research shows a plant-based diet can reduce the risk of major illnesses, including Type 2 diabetes, heart disease and certain types of cancer, and plant-based dieters have reported boosted energy, reduced inflammation and better health outcomes. The Center for Plant-Based Living offers educational literature on the plant-based diet, as well as both demonstration and hands-on cooking classes. “I want people to come in if they’re curious about how to add more plants to their plate,” Dugan says.
