It was so fascinating to go to the Healthy Lifestyles Expo to hear about nutrition, health and the environment straight from the experts last weekend. I met so many inspiring people. In fact, pretty much everyone I met inspired me in one way or another. Each had their own unique story to tell about what it was that sparked them to start a plant-based diet.

One man’s story caught my interest because he has been plant-based only since October 1st! He is also sixty-nine years young and was excited to be seeing changes in his health after only three weeks! He described a physical and mental “lightness”, better sleep and an overall sense of healing taking place since he had adopted a plant-based diet.

As excited as I was for him, this was not surprising to me. The body is always attempting to find a state of health and feeding it nutritious foods as found in plants is a major step in helping the body to do this. The benefits of a plant-based diet truly are amazing, and just as described in The Wellness Diaries, one notices changes in overall health almost within days. The impact is that profound. This is because it is a more natural diet for people, one that helps people return to their natural state-health.

Just as my own account explained in The Wellness Diaries, after I adopted a plant-based diet, I noticed changes nearly overnight. I began sleeping much better, I felt up to some activity to where I eventually started exercising again. There is so much evidence and there just is no mistaking the profound effect of adopting nourishment via nutrition, (a plant-based diet).

I realized that everyone who eats a plant-based diet will have their own stories as they took this vital first step that opened up the other steps of health for them. Each unique story includes details of how their physical symptoms of illness disappear, they shed excess weight, cholesterol drops dramatically, they begin to sleep better, they feel up to doing some activity, they gain a better outlook on life. It becomes easier for them to shed the negativity and to focus on the bright side. The body is able to regain balance and wholeness when it is fed what it is designed to eat. This is plants.

Hello! The above is health described.

Yes, there really is something to the cabbage, kale, rice, sweet potatoes, lentils, quinoa, potatoes, carrots, balsamic vinegar salad, apples, etc.

It is never too late to start eating well on a plant-based diet. Not even at sixty-nine.

This was my first year attending the expo and it was great to hear the facts confirmed straight from the experts.
