Make Sweet, Passionate Love to Your Life

It breaks my heart that so many people are in a funk with their health and don’t know what to do about it.
I’m bummed by the number of people who are just getting by when life is meant to be made sweet passionate love too.
I’m saddened by how little power people think they have over their health and well-being.
I’m angry that we have a “health” care system that pushes drugs on people after they’re sick and talks nothing about what can be done to prevent crap from happening in the first place.
It makes me do a face-palm, accompanied by a “WTF?!” when I think about all the research that has been done by amazing people like Dr. T. Colin Campbell, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, and Dr. Dean Ornish on the clear health benefits of plant-based nutrition that people have no idea about, and that scientists and people in the medical field don’t take seriously.
Do you know why they don’t take it seriously, btw?
Because people don’t profit from cruciferous vegetables.
Why the hell is this not a huge global discussion?
When my girlfriend at the time and I turned Clean Food Dirty Girl into our full-time business, I knew I wanted to do more than just write cookbooks. Cookbooks are fun and sweet, but I wanted to create something tactical, guided, personal, and a step-by-step solution to eating better.
I wanted to put my passion, skills, and know-how to use in a way that people could get the maximum benefit from. I wanted to create something that would actually change the course of someone’s life for the better.
I needed to know how to do this, so I stopped talking and started listening.
You know what I found?
People are fed up.
- People want to detox from junk food and processed sugar.
- People don’t want to be addicted to salt, sugar and fat.
- People want to be healthy and live full lives.
- People want to get off their medication, not be given more of it.
- People don’t want to be skinny, they just want to lose a little weight and get their lives back.
Doctors are great for a lot of reasons.
If I break my arm, no amount of kale will set the bone. But apart from emergencies, we as a society must do better in taking responsibility for our health and stop leaving it up to government agencies, doctors, big pharma, and agrochemical giants.
They do not have our best interests in mind. It’s their bottom line that trumps everything.
Here’s a chart of the biggest pharma companies and their revenues for 2014 to ponder on.
What I really, really, really want to tell you, my love, is that it’s time to put your health into your own hands because you have the power to feel good all by yourself.
You can break free from processed junk food, untangle the web of what’s healthy and what’s not, and then reap the benefits of a plant based diet.
Benefits include releasing weight naturally, getting your energy back, sleeping better, having a more positive mindset, regaining your confidence, and generally feeling like the badass that you are.
And when you’re ready for a change, I have something for you.
I created our weekly whole food plant based meal plans because I concluded that people want change, they want to feel good, they want to release weight in a natural way, they want a damn pep in their step, and they want their mojo back… they just don’t know how.
Each Friday, in Plant Fueled Life, we feature yummy meal plans with everything you need to eat like a plant based boss all week.
Grocery list, batching recipes, tips – it’s all there. And the food tastes damn good. When you’re ready, I will show you exactly how. I will hold your hand, and I will show you a better way. I will help you detox from all the crap so you can get on with your life.
In the meantime, here’s a plant based Gluten Free Eggplant Lasagna recipe from one of our meal plans for your sampling pleasure. Go make it.
