Following his own health transformation, John’s goal is to educate and inspire others to do the same

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.
