    The Compelling Case for a Plant-Based Diet

    in Environment

    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.

    How to Cook for a Vegetarian or Plant Based Diet

    in Current Events

    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.


    My guest is Jill Nussinow, The Veggie Queen and author of The Veggie Queen:  Vegetables Get the Royal Treatment cookbook which has more than 100 seasonal vegetable based recipes.  Jill will be sharing her inspiring ideas for plant based eating and why this type of eating is now taking off with so many people wanting to be healthier.

    Vegan - ish? Perhaps a nutrient dense diet should be the real talk

    in Current Events

    What is a vegan diet?  Why should I try a different diet?  Am I getting all the nutrients I need from my food?  Do you have to 'follow' a diet that others are labeling you with?  Perhaps you just eat healthy foods that support your life and body and do the best you can, is that ok?  What is a plant based diet?


    Mielle Chenier-Cowan Rose is the author of Veganish:  The Omnivore's Guide to Plant Based Cooking which allows us to choose that path of nutrition that might suit us as an individual.  This book shares tips on how to get started with food items that you may not be familiar with.  Many recipes are included to balance a diet with nutrients we may be lacking.  Mielle shares her journey with health challenges that caused her to jump a little off the path of vegetarian and a mother to get dense nutrients in to heal the body.
