Training with Dr. Neal Barnard in Washington, D.C.

Education and exploration is essential to harnessing the true power of a plant-based nutrition program.  

I'm sharing my favorite resources to help you understand more about how your body works and what food can do for your body.  I have listed only a few of my favorites in a variety of categories so you may find an avenue of learning which appeals to you. 

Whether the information you gather is from a book, a website, or a documentary, remember to branch out to learn about the entire process and approach to a plant-based lifestyle because there are so many interesting facets to plant-based nutrition including an environmental, compassionate, and spiritual side to every food choice you make.
