Plant-Based Cooking | Gabriel Miller
In this episode, I interview Gabriel Miller, a speaker, chef, organic gardener, and author of the best-selling cookbook, The Plant-Based Diet for Beginners.
Gabriel was a starting football player at the University of Nebraska until he suffered a career-ending back injury. At the time, he was also pursuing a degree in livestock production, but he began to do his research on diet and health after his injury. Unable to maintain his previously active lifestyle, Gabriel started searching for ways to lose weight and become healthy through his diet.
In the process, Gabriel found that what he was learning in his classes contradicted what he was learning about health and contradicted his own beliefs about animal welfare and preserving the environment. Still, Gabriel chose to finish his degree while also pursuing his research into sustainable and ethical agricultural practices that promote health.
Now 100 pounds lighter than his playing weight, Gabriel runs his blog, Plant-Based Gabriel, which is focused on helping individuals and families transition to a plant-based diet and vegan lifestyle. Besides producing helpful recipes and videos, Gabriel also loves working on his vegan and organic vegetable farm.
