The Value of a Plant-Based Diet

The value of a plant-based diet is something that I am always excited to talk about! I was recently given the opportunity to do just that by Foody Direct!

Below you can see the first few questions I discussed with them and you can then click here to read the full interview!

How did you become so passionate about healthy foods and a healthier lifestyle, and why did you start a blog around it?

Growing up, I’ve never had a real taste for meat, so it was an easy transition for me to go plant-based. But the catalyst to that happening was reading Dr. T. Colin Campbell’s book The China Study. That did it in a heartbeat!

When I first began a plant-based diet almost 8 years ago, the biggest challenge was finding tasty recipes! And that’s why I started my blog, The Flexi Foodie, almost 5 years ago to document the recipes I created for my 4 kids and husband. Those recipes must have tasted pretty decent, as that blog got me my first cookbook deal!

On your site, you describe your transformation after embracing yoga and a plant-based diet. How would you describe the difference in how you felt after the change to someone who has never had that experience?

Moving, breathing, meditating and eating a whole foods diet has ramped up my energy levels, my moods, and my happiness! I’ve never looked back.

    I would like to know where do you get your protein needs, only with veggies… eggs?! 🤔

      It is a complete myth that a plant-based diet doesn’t contain adequate amounts of protein!
