First thing you need to know: I didn’t always follow a plant-based diet.
I think it’s important for you to know that, especially if you’re not a plant-based eater or are skeptical if it’s even possible to eat this way.
If you had told me years ago, before I made the switch, that I would be eating a plant-based diet, I would have laughed and said you were crazy. I thought I could never give up cheese and wasn’t very adventurous in my veggie-eating and believed I already was eating healthy.
And then my dad was diagnosed with heart disease.
That was my wake up call to take a hard look at my own diet plus support him in trying to avoid surgery by going plant-based. He ended up needing the surgery, but by then, I was in love with this new way of eating and decided to keep it up.
While it was tough at first and even brought me to tears at times, I found switching to a plant-based diet not only improved my health, but it provided an outlet for the creative bent God gave me and Wildberry Press was born.
And then I upgraded my health again…
A couple years after going plant-based, I was still experiencing annoying systems in my digestive system and suspected a systemic yeast overgrowth. I felt God continually nudging me to fast from sugar for three months, but it took awhile before I worked up the courage to do it.
It was tough. Harder even than going plant-based because I followed an extremely strict diet that included zero added sugars for three months plus initially limiting the fruits and veggies I ate that contained higher levels of naturally occurring sugars.
But it again changed my health for the better… not only did it drastically reduce the digestive issues I experienced, but I also felt less anxious and was able to decrease the seasonal allergy medication I needed.
A few other tidbits about me:
- Jesus first
- My husband and I have four children who all have very different taste buds despite being born from the same genetic pool
- Tea over coffee
- I can’t pick a favorite color…it depends on my mood
- Extra-Introvert (I like connecting with people but need a quiet place to recharge)
- I was born in one country, been a citizen of two and lived in three
- Morning person
If you still want to get to know me a little better and learn about my approach to a plant-based diet, see this Q&A.
