Welcome to our PBNM Blog

We hope you’ll visit our blog often for information on a wide range of health and nutritional topics, and to learn more about the Whole Food Plant-Based without the use of added oil lifestyle. Over the years we’ve discovered that many of the “truths” we grew up with have virtually no basis in fact. As a result, we are all in the process of “unwinding” our perceptions about food and building a brand new fact-based understanding that can heal so much of what needs healing: our own bodies, the earth we wish to leave our children, and all the sentient creatures with whom we share our planet.

Join us on this beautiful journey. And we invite you to engage with us as we move forward toward a more sustainable and compassionate future!
