Happy New PBNM Year!

Hello, my PBNM Pumpkins!

Happy Winter Holidays and a Joyous New Year to you all!  As I look forward to the coming year, I want to share my gratitude and excitement for your continued support for PBNM and our 6 Million Seeds project.

Over the past year, I had the opportunity to meet many of you online and in person. I attended the PlantStrong Retreat in March, the National Health Association Conference in June, and the Center for Nutrition Studies Retreat in November. We worked with kids and food all summer. We also held monthly A Delicious Adventure gatherings online, as well as larger events focused on specific aspects of nutrition. We hosted Chef AJ, Dr. Michael Klaper, and Glen Merzer for a Take Back Your Health event. We also had two events focused on Child Nutrition featuring, The first featured Dr. Antonia Demas, Ariel Demas, and Dr. Elizabeth Winings. The second one had Jane and Ann Esselstyn. The year’s work culminated in our inaugural 6 Million Seeds Child Nutrition Summit with 11 speakers over 4 days! All these experiences have strengthened the connections we have with this wonderful community.  For this, I am so grateful.

One thing that I think stands out across these events and venues is that people from all walks of life are ready for the transformation that whole food plant-based eating patterns deliver. Regardless of where people are on income, age, marital status, gender, educational, religious, racial, and ethnicity spectrums, there is a demand for this information. Witnessing this firsthand has only deepened my commitment to making this evidence-based body of information readily available to everyone. It also inspires me to support activities that focus on the same goals, especially for children. The potential to improve health, life, and planetary climate chaos is so exciting! And we can do it from the comfort of our own kitchens!  That is just plain too amazingly doable to be ignored!

One more thing: We recorded the 6 Million Seeds Child Nutrition Summit. If you are interested in obtaining the recordings and other bonuses, please click here. I encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity so you can refer to the wisdom they contain for years to come.

I am on pins and needles looking forward to the coming year! I honestly can’t wait to see what the future holds, especially for our children!  Thank you for your growing support! May you and your kiddos be gifted with brilliance, strength, and vibrant health!
