EAT WELL, BE WELL!
I never tire of telling anyone who will listen about the extraordinary health benefits of PLANT-BASED EATING. Four years ago I was in pretty bad shape—45 pounds heavier, trying to keep track of multiple daily meds, no energy, too many doctor visits, too many aches and pains. Then I had a heart attack just like my father and 3 brothers.
That heart attack was a wake-up call for me. It gave me a second chance to make changes to restore my health. When I learned that Bill Clinton had lost a significant amount of weight and had reversed his heart disease with PLANT-BASED EATING, I said to myself, “If he can do it, so can I!” And so I did. I read, I studied, I changed my diet and here I am today, “fit as a fiddle”, on no meds, with more than enough energy to play with grandchildren, garden, “jog” on the Beach, write a blog and teach classes about PLANT-BASED EATING.
Does the story end there? NO! I continue to study and learn daily about the effect of food choices on personal health and--are you ready for this?--on GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE! What we choose to put on our plates has a dramatic impact on global health as well as on personal well being. This is the topic of a new course I will be teaching in the Fall at the Osher Life Long Learning Institute at the University of Delaware in Lewes.
