So many of us who want to be vibrantly healthy, toy with the idea of being 100% ‘plant powered’. But cutting out animal products can lead to huge health issues… or can it?!
To bust through the myths and cut straight to the facts, I decided to do a ‘Round Two’ with one of my all-time favourite podcast guests. Yep, after popular demand, Dr Stephen Cabral is back! And in this episode, he’s dishing all on how to do vegan RIGHT, so that you can achieve the radiant, robust health you’ve been seeking, and avoid the common pitfalls that keep so many vegans from attaining peak wellness.
If you haven’t heard of Dr Cabral before, you’re missing out. This guy is smart. So smart, in fact, that he’s become one of my husband and my most trusted sources of information on all things health, wellness, nutrition, diet, Ayurveda and more.
A board-certified Naturopathic Doctor specialising in Ayurvedic and Functional Medicine, Dr. Cabral also heads one of the biggest nutrition-based practices in the U.S., where he and his team have helped more than 250,000 clients achieve optimum health. He’s also host of the mega-popular podcast, The Cabral Concept, where he shares information on how to get well, lose weight, live longer, and feel alive again.
Veganism can be a hot-button topic. (And it sometimes seems like everyone on the internet has a different — and strong! — opinion on the subject.) So it’s a breath of fresh air to hear Dr Cabral’s calm and considered take on how to embrace a plant-powered diet, backed up by his extensive clinical experience and numerous case studies.
So if you’ve been searching for answers to your ongoing health niggles, if you’ve been considering embracing the power of plants in your own diet, or if you’re already vegan and want to make sure you’re doing it right, then this episode is for you!
