Health Site

We converted to a vegan, plant based whole foods diet in 2006, and have gathered factual, interesting documents to help those who don't know or understand the health benefits of a plant based diet. The following documents emphasize less widely-known and often-ignored facts about health and diet, especially in the United States, facts that we believe if people were aware of, the epidemics of obesity, cancer, and heart disease would not be epidemics or problems in this country. They are caused by diet and can be cured by diet, I know, who new.

Here are some informative and useful links and resources

Our Vegan Cookbook Library (coming soon)
Here are "all" the cookbooks and websites we use to prepare meals. If you want to cook vegan then you "need" some (meaning more then one) cookbooks that specialize in vegan. So you can easily make food that is healthy beautiful and delicouse. Isn't that why you are vegan to begin with? (Side note: When we say "books we use to prepare meals" we mean April and our daughters. Jared has made a few things here and there, but is mostly an idiot about cooking (said in a very kind and loving way)). This is updated with each new addition.

Book Reviews
(coming soon)
We have reviewed a few books here we consider important life changing books. Why? Well that is very simple, we believe that if you were to read these books and apply their simple principals, your life and health would change drastically. We just want to share that with any who are interested in hearing it.
