John Gagliardi brings not only years of experience in traditional and new media, but also firsthand knowledge of the benefits of plant-based nutrition. In addition to creating and managing content for well-known catalogs and ecommerce sites, he has actively supported numerous non-profit organizations through his work with the Taproot Foundation, a volunteer organization that provides pro bono marketing services to NPOs.
A competitive runner and triathlete, John accepted his joint pain, inflammation, and frequent headaches as the inevitable effects of aging. That is, until he transitioned to a mostly whole food plant-based diet. Powered by plant-based nutrition, John was amazed to find that he could train harder, recover more quickly, and require far less pain medication–he went from popping ibuprofen several times a week to just a few tablets a year. His goal is to educate and inspire as many people as possible to lead longer, happier lives through healthy eating.
