I was in my 30s before I really started to take care of my body. My motivation back then was purely physical: I wanted to keep my weight under control. And so I began running and working out, but I was still missing a vital component to my health: diet. I didn't realize that the meat, dairy and sugar I was consuming was undoing all of the good that running and weight-training was providing. It took me another ten years before I put it all together and today my body runs on a plant-based, low-fat, low sugar diet that keeps me fueled, strong and at a good "fighting" weight. My goal is to share what I've learned and what I'm still learning by offering simple, delicious and nutritious "unrefined" recipes that nurture body, soul and conscience.
