As an adult, I wish I listened to my parents more growing up when they begged me to eat my vegetables. During my mid-to-late 20s, I experienced minor health issues that made me question what foods I was putting in my body and how they affected me. Despite eating healthy (healthy being a plate of complex carbs, high quality animal protein, healthy fats and a side of vegetables) I was still experiencing low energy, adult acne and terrible stomach issues like bloating. 

After getting food poisoning from grilled chicken and doing some research, I decided to remove all animal products from my diet a little over a year ago. And while I know that eating an all plant-based diet doesn’t work for everyone (as a certified Precision Nutrition coach, I see clients with a wide range of nutritional needs), going plant-based worked well for me and I encourage anyone who’s never tried it to test out a plant-based diet too. And no matter what my clients’ nutritional needs are, I always encourage them and others to eat more plants.
