The Plant Strong Club

About the Plant Strong Club

A Plant Strong Club member will probably be someone who is interested in learning more about the plant-based, whole food, nutrient dense lifestyle. Whether you’re just gathering information or looking for encouragement and support in leaning more toward this lifestyle, you’ll find those among us who will gladly share our experiences and resources with you.

Kellie and I both radically changed our beliefs, choices, and health based on science-based research, anecdotal stories, and our own personal experiences. And, I’m happy to report, neither one of us feels like we’re missing out or being deprived. This is a get-to, not a have-to! But I do have to say I believe you have to – if you want to experience optimal health and a greater sense of well-being. It truly raises your energy level to eat and drink food that’s more alive and closer to its natural state – and that doesn’t have a mother.

Arkansas Wellness Forum – Maryelle Vonlanthen, M.D. – Two Events This Weekend!

Yikes what happened: time warp that is what it is.  I was in NW Arkansas yesterday until very late. Sorry for not giving you guys much notice time for this coming week end’s activities. 

Bernadette will be in Germany (lucky her) and I am trying to convince my husband to come and present one of his awesome inventions.  

On Friday I am planning some easy portable meals. Something in the line of salads as this is pot luck time.  But who knows what surprises we will have depending on available produce.  

On Saturday we will have 2 wonderful guest speakers: Cathy Christian and Kellie Coleman .  They are doing a wonderful job with programs at Natural Grocers and public libraries. I wanted them to discuss what they do and get us all connected!
