I know firsthand what it’s like to feel out of control with food. Although I grew up in a vegan household where we grew our own food and relied on herbal support for many ailments, I struggled to maintain those health values as I entered adulthood. By age 22 I was pre-diabetic, lethargic, anxious, and truly directionless with my life and career. My food and lifestyle choices were increasing my risk for type 2 diabetes and had me set to continue the generational cycle of diet-related disease that haunts communities of color.
The journey to becoming empowered to make better health choices has not been linear. I went through cycles of stress-induced binge eating, crash dieting motivated by reaching aesthetic goals, and witnessed my fitness clients do the same. Over the last 5 years, I’ve embraced an incredible holistic wellness approach to food. Personally, and professionally, I’ve witnessed the life transformation that comes when we address nutritional health along with mental, emotional, social, physical, spiritual, and financial health.
High -Protein Plant-Based Diet for Beginners is MORE than a collection of plant-based recipes. It’s a message of empowerment to beginners of both a plant-based diet and a holistic wellness lifestyle.
