Dirty Girl Betty Haynes Went from Eating Meat, Dairy and Processed Food to Loving Plants (Video)

Today I’m sharing a chat that I had with Dirty Girl Betty Haynes. I kept seeing Betty’s comments and posts in our Facebook group and I knew she was someone I wanted to personally touch base with. We had an awesome time talking and I know you will find her inspiring.
We often hear from members of our community who were inspired to make dietary changes after they were put on medications and facing serious illness.
Then, there are people who are still considered healthy but for whom medical problems are on the horizon – gradual increases in cholesterol and blood pressure at yearly checkups, and gentle suggestions from their doctor that medication should be considered at their next visit.
For most people, just the suggestion of going on medication by a doctor isn’t enough to motivate what can be an intimidating lifestyle change – it’s just not jarring enough.
But maybe, going through the experience of seeing a loved one, genetically related to you, suffer and succumb to disease is the final straw. Even if your genes destine you for disease, maybe it’s worth a shot to change your lifestyle and give your body the best chance possible to avoid suffering unnecessarily. At least then, if you do get sick, you’ll know that you did your absolute best.
And here’s the thing. As scary as giving up meat, dairy, fried food and processed food sounds, once you get over the palate hump, the learning curve to batch your food, and side-eye from your family and co-workers, it’s smooth sailing. You will eat all the plants and you will end up loving it more than you ever thought possible.
Betty and I talk about all of this and more in today’s chat. Enjoy!
