Looking for some resources to start learning how to improve your health?
1. Watch the documentary "What the Health?" The full-length film is below!
2. Watch the documentary Forks Over Knives. The trailer is below.
3. Watch the documentary Eating You Alive. Here's the trailer below.
4. Learn the basics of plant-based nutrition - including cooking, grocery shopping, meal planning, and stocking a healthy pantry/fridge - by joining a Plant Based Nutrition Support Group Transition 101 Course or doing a PCRM 21 Day Kickstart program.
5. Check out this free "How To Guide" about eating plant-based foods for Type II Diabetes from the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM).
7. Read, Read, Read. There are so many great books out there now about the health benefits of plant-based nutrition. Some of my favorites are The Whole Heart Solution, by Dr. Joel Kahn, How Not to Die, by Dr. Michael Greger, Eat to Live, by Dr. Joel Fuhrman, The Blue Zones, by Dan Buettner, Whole, by Dr. T Colin Campbell, and Dr. Neal Barnard's Program for Reversing Diabetes."
7. The plant-based culinary scene has exploded over the past several years. There are beautiful, colorful, and fun cookbooks everywhere for those who are savvy in the kitchen and those who are not, as well. Some books I use often include Forks Over Knives, Plant Powered Families, the Get Healthy, Go Vegan Cookbook, and The Plant Power Way.
8. Seek out support. People all over the country are trying to learn how to eat healthier to prevent and reverse chronic diseases. Find a friend or family member to make healthy changes with you, share the journey, and celebrate your progress. If you're in Michigan, there are PBNSG small groups all over the state. If you're not from Michigan, you can form your own local support group, like the Plant Based Nutrition Support Group, or a Plant Pure Pod.
