"Cathy, thanks for all you are doing to help spread the word about dietary sanity. Please keep sharing the life-saving message about plant-based nutrition."
Michael Greger, M.D., physician, founder of NutritionFacts.org. How Not to Die: Discover
the Foods Scientifically Proven to Prevent and Reverse Disease (2015), with Gene Stone
People everywhere, increasingly, are adding plants to their plates. What's the excitement all about?
Turning to plants and away from animal and highly processed foods can address today's most pressing, pernicious problems: From climate change to the mass extinction of species to our epidemics in chronic and infectious diseases, shifting our eating towards plants holds a very powerful key: It can drastically lower greenhouse gas emissions in the food system and protect ecosystems. It can vanquish chronic inflammation and oxidative stress, key precursors to chronic disease, as it fortifies a healthy gut microbiome.
From climate change, to the mass die-off of species, to our epidemics of both chronic and infectious diseases, cooking with plants plays a pivotal role.
"Yours and your husband’s story of success can surely be an inspiration to so many who are wandering in the dark, unaware of a safe, simple and enduring treatment which can vanquish their disease. Keep up the wonderful work. You are a kindred spirit."
Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr., M.D., physician and author. Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease: The Revolutionary, Scientifically Proven, Nutrition-Based Cure (2007)
"Cathy led us through an extraordinary wellness journey, providing evidence-based support and expertise in whole food, plant-based nutrition...This program...began with a kickstart which entailed lectures and cooking demonstrations spanning over three months...
She taught us how to make wonderful recipes that we thought were only available to us at the finest of restaurants, certainly not coming from our own kitchens...Our company was so enthralled by her teachings and fabulous recipes that we purchased her spectacular Love the Foods that Love You Back cookbook for every associate...
Cathy is an incredible teacher, who is caring and has a beautiful tenderness which comes through in a big way. My team and I are extremely grateful..."
Vice President, Culture, Wellness & Engagement
