Watch the Video of Tami & Al’s Radio Interview!

You might recall that a couple weeks ago Al Schmidt and I were guests of Peggy Bean on her SOS radio show on KVMR FM 89.5. Peggy allowed hubby Tom to video tape the interview and post it on our You Tube channel. Al is our 82 years young friend who reversed his heart disease and saved his life by adopting a whole food plant based lifestyle! His story is pretty amazing and will inspire you to do your best and to eat healthy and exercise. If you know of anyone who needs to hear this message please forward them a link to this blog post and video. Feel free to share it on your own facebook page or any group facebook pages you follow. You never know who might see it and I believe it could save lives!


Peggy Bean, Al Schmidt and Tami at the KVMR Radio Station – Nevada City, CA

Peggy Bean is an amazing interviewer – she asked all the right questions to help keep us on track. I love her radio voice – smooth and gentle. Her SOS radio show on KVMR FM 89.5 is dedicated to spreading the word about veganism and how it has an impact on saving animals lives, helps the environment and done properly can promote better health and prevent many diseases. Thank you Peggy for the opportunity to share Al’s story and spread the word about this healthy lifestyle.

A Little Nutmeg Nugget: When I started this blog in January of 2010 I followed what I understood to be a healthy version of the standard American diet, ironically also known as the “SAD” diet. As interest in my own health and how it was affected by the food I ate evolved, I transitioned to a whole food plant based diet also known as “WFPB” diet. I have wrestled with the fact that this blog still contains all those posts and recipes from the SAD way of eating I have left behind. I no longer advocate for anyone to eat that way. At this time I am leaving those recipes and posts here. It is a record of my journey and how I came to follow a WFPB way of eating. It is my hope that those who still come here for those old recipes will be curious about what I am doing now. Perhaps they will dip their toes across the line as I did and try some plant based recipes and learn more about the health benefits.
