My platform is to bring awareness to how our health can to radically impacted by the foods we consume. I have suffered from obesity and food addiction for most of my life. At the age of 50, like a revelation from God, I came to a true realization of how strong a hold food had over me. There is a verse in the Bible that says, Life and death is in the power of the tongue. For me, the cravings of my tongue were so powerful and led me to a life time of obesity and constant yo yo dieting. I truly believe that God led me to adapt a whole food plant based (vegan) lifestyle. I immediately saw changes in my health, energy level, mental/emotional capacities, and weight (70lb down). It is so import to me to be an example to others, especially those over 40, that sickness, weight gain, loss of strength, loss of mobility, and decrease in mental capacity does not have to be a natural progression of aging.
I have had such a big physical transformation that I’m often questioned about what I eat. But the notion of not consuming meat or animal products seems so unachievable to my family and community. So I started an IG platform where I post pics of all the amazing plant based foods that I eat. My goal is to ultimately begin recipe development and to gain a plant based nutrition certification.
