What are the biggest changes you've noticed since eating more Whole Food Plant Based?
No belly. Even at 43 y.o. and not always able to exercise due to kids/work/allofthefuckery I've still got a flat stomach that is only a week of core training away from a 6-pack.
ENERGY. Once I got B12 supplements I never have a drop off in energy. No caffeine needed; if I'm tired, it really means I'm hungry.
CLARITY. Not just my skin, which is pretty low on wrinkles for my age. I'm talking about clarity of thought. In the present moment (what am I doing now? what do I need to plan for later today?) as well as the big-picture clarity (Who do I want to be? Spiritually? Financially? Emotionally? And what kind of thinking and actions do I need to take to make this manifest?
What do you know now about food and eating that you wish you knew a long time ago?
The massive amounts of age-related reductions in health that can be avoided (read: NOT standard results of aging).
Also, the massive marketing machine launched by Big Food to convince Americans that fatty, sugary, processed food is "good" for us.

I was forced to become Whole Foods Plant-Based after 18 months of chemo for a brain tumor riggity-wrecked my digestion. Shitting myself in public (more than once) made me finally listen to my best friend about the evils of the S.A.D., and how to go Vegan.
What role did Molly and Clean Food Dirty Girl play in helping you get to where you are now?
As a Speaker and Coach, her potty-mouth and refreshing honesty has given me permission to be less measured in the persona I present and more "real". I'm not dropping F-bombs (yet), but I'm much looser and more relatable.
