Welcome to my blog! After being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes I switched to a whole food, plant-based diet. The results have been amazing!

Vegan Vs. Whole Food, Plant-Based

What’s the difference between vegan and whole food, plant-based? I get this a lot. I don’t eat anything that comes from an animal, but I don’t call myself a vegan.

My Shortlist of “Healthy Carbs”

Typically, I try to avoid foods that require labels as much as possible, and stick to whole foods: fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts, seeds, mushrooms, and whole grains. When I do buy packaged foods, I try to follow the […]
