    Hello everyone,

    I'm Christine. My journey into the plant-based world started with a career in ornamental horticulture where I contracted Lyme disease that went undiagnosed and untreated for 5 1/2 years. After being on I.V. antibiotics for over 2 years, although I was over the Lyme, I now had fibromyalgia, candidiasis, and food sensitivities. Eventually, I went to a doctor of Chinese Medicine. He changed my diet (not plant-based), but I noticed tremendous improvement in how I felt. So I got curious about the connection between what I ate and how I felt.

    I started reading and researching and learned that a plant-based diet was the best diet for my health, the planet, and the animals. Eventually I went back to shcool to become a health coach and then later certifed in Plant-Based nutrition.

    I now help others increase plant foods in their diets through my business where I offer diet coaching, cooking classes, personal chef services and workshops and lectures.

    So many clients that contact me have diabetes and heart disease and I know that a whole food, plant-based diet without oils is the key. I started to educate myself on cooking without oils, and avoid them at home as much as possible now, but I've got so much to learn.

    I figured this would be a great place for me to ask questions and learn more.

    Thanks for having me!
