Dr. John McDougall
John A. McDougall is an American Irish physician and author whose philosophy is that degenerative disease can be prevented and treated with a low-fat, whole foods, plant-based/vegan diet – especially one based on starches such as potatoes, rice, and corn – which excludes all animal foods and added vegetable oils. Passionate? Incredibly. Compelling? Totally. Convincing? Yes – because of the science Dr. McDougall brings to the table. If you have EVER wondered or want to know more about the benefits of a plant-based diet and want to educate yourself, make joining us a “must do.” You will be glad you did. Our thanks to the Tucson-based Healthy You Network for introducing us to Dr. McDougall and for helping make this interview possible. This show sponsored by Goodwill Industries of Southern Arizona.

We all know how to cook meat, fish, and other animal products but if you are making a lifestyle change or just want to add vegetables to your daily intake, how do you cook them? Microwave or raw seem easy enough but which vegetables work with what type of cooking or do they need to be raw? After a while, salads and smoothies can hit the road if they are always the 'same old thing'. Today, we are going to add diversity and taste back into the plant food diet and many recipes are naturally gluten free.
