Family Friendly Plant-Based Recipes


This is Ellsworth Wareham he is 95 years old and lives in a beautiful home in the mountains of San Bernardino Valley He needed an 8-foot-high wooden fence to border the steep edge of his property. A local contractor quoted a price of $5,000 to build the fence.He did a little math and realized he could buy the materials from a local hardware store and do it himself for just $2,000.

He had the money and he was more than 90 years old but he decided to build it himself…Why? How?   And for that matter why and how does he still perform heart surgery at his age? 
His story is truly amazing.  Did he just get good genes or does he eat some special berry that keeps him fit and active at 95 years old?  I think we need to find out!
Dan Buettner author of the National Geographic Study “Secrets of Longevity” and New York Times best-seller “Blue Zones,” has spent years learning what makes people live longer healthier and happier lives. He found four areas where people live the longest and he has dubbed them the “Blue Zones”. 
I am part of that Blue Zone culture who has been promoting healthy, plant-based diet for more than 150 years.  I made the change myself 15 years ago from a standard American diet to a healthy, whole-foods, plant-based diet and love to help others make that life changing decision to eat healthy and give their own families something better
