“I think it was more like a midlife awakening. You awaken to the fact that life is short and what are we here to do and I want to make the most of it.”


“My immune system can handle whatever comes its way because it’s its job. If we feed it the right nutrients and the right fuel, it will do its job to protect us.”


“I eat normal things like whole grain pasta, Mexican dishes, and pizza. They’re just tweaked to become whole food plant-based.”
