Ahhh, to be a part of VegSource...a dream-come-true!  I am writing to introduce myself as I am a new member in the blogosphere of the VegSource Universe. 

I am known as the Plant-Based Dietitian and I am "on a mission to change the world".  Those are the lyrics of my theme song for the documentary my co-producer (Jesse Pomeroy, award-winning director) and I are currently in production on, "Going Veg with the Plant-Based Dietitian".  We have had the most awe-inspiring experiences, touring the country and meeting with all of the greatest experts and pioneers in the field of nutrition, the same gurus that have been affiliated with VegSource since its inception: Dr. T. Colin Campbell, Dr. Joel Fuhrman, Dr. John McDougall, and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn to name a few.

It has been a world of wonder as all of these pioneers have very different perspectives, despite the proximity of their research and intention.  It is a collaboration of thought, detail, and experience.  All of their wisdom is critical in us understanding the science behind whole food, plant-based nutrition and confirms any hesitation one might have initially breaking into the genre.  I know I had many concerns, especially when I became a Mom.  But I have found the answers in the research.  There is no denying science and I am grateful to each of the aforementioned geniuses.  Their passion is infectious and it fuels the strength of their loyal followers as we cope with the everyday battles against society.  For instance, being able to quickly come up with five fantastic facts about how you get enough protein from plant sources is invaluable.

I am honored to be a member of this community and love every minute of inspiring others and watching the breathtaking results unfold.  I never believed in magic...until now!
