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 – Dr. Maryelle Vonlanthen – Upcoming Class and Meeting

Summer is definitely here .  Heat and food and travel: these are the themes for this week’s food adventure ! 

As you know the past month has been a whirlwind for me with travel and such .  So our theme will reflect some of that. 

And Bernadette is back!!!! So happy ! 

On the theme of heat and travel we are preparing an Ethiopian Feast.  

This Friday we will try to recreate an Ethiopian platter.  We both had it at restaurants and loved it. Come prepared to enjoy new flavors and a food adventure!  You will learn how easy it is to make you own spice blend.
