Hi Friend,
Are you tired of waking up every morning to the same health problems, aches and pills, or have seen loved ones suffer from chronic diseases and want to change your path? You’re now plant-based curious or ready to start your transition, but that’s where you’re stuck.

You don’t know how you’ll move away from a carnivore-style diet with meat-heavy mains, and wonder if this change is even DOABLE with a busy schedule working, taking care of the home, or looking after grandkids. You’ve tried to research online but find the flood of information and new plant-based terms overwhelming, and don’t know what’s credible. Most of all, you’re afraid it’ll be expensive, you’ll lack nutrients like protein and that it’ll take hours in the kitchen to make bland tasteless meals. If this sounds like you, I want you to know that you’re in the right place!

Welcome to the ‘Plant Based Eating Made Easy’ podcast. I’m your host, Anna - a master’s level plant-based Registered Dietitian and Transition Coach - with 20 years of dietetics experience. I’m also the Founder of PlantNourished and an award-winning recipe creator. I’ve watched friends and close loved ones suffer and families torn apart by health problems like sudden heart attacks and cancer. Diabetes, high blood pressure, multiple cancer diagnoses, and heart problems all run in my extended family. And having gone through my own plant-based diet transition feeling lost with no guidance or support, I know just HOW challenging this transition can be – especially if you’ve been used to a ‘meat and potatoes’ diet for most of your life. But through my transition experience, I’ve now developed a simpler and easier method to move to plant-based eating – one that I can’t wait to share with you!

I’m on a MISSION to simplify plant-based eating for you so you can transform your health the stress-free way. This podcast will give you top tips, simple strategies, uncomplicated recipes and real-life guidance so you can easily begin a plant-powered lifestyle. I’ll address potential transition challenges, and provide clear nutrition guidance from my plant-based dietitian expertise, so you can fast-track your way to thriving health. I’ll give you practical solutions on how to make a seamless transition along with inspiration, motivation and real-life stories to show you the health benefits that a whole food plant-based lifestyle can bring.

I’m here to help you gain more energy to keep up with the grandchildren, drop unwanted pounds, optimize your nutrition and regain your health through whole plant-based foods. Together we’ll build you a life with less chronic disease, pills and side effects, so you can truly live your BEST life now with the people you love.

So, if you’re tired of going at it alone, and are ready for clear guidance and straight talk, grab your favorite cup of tea or pop me in your earbuds as you walk, and let’s dive into the amazing world of whole plant-based foods together. Moving from a heavy meat-and-processed-foods diet to better health shouldn’t be difficult or complicated. Let me show you how doable and stress-free moving to plant-based eating can be!

Wishing you the best health,
~Anna

    56 | How to BEST Do Your Walking To Maximize Health Benefits - with Courtney McManus [Guest Expert Interview] {Building Health, Getting Started, Exercise, Lose Weight, Live Longer, Healthy Aging}

    Want to start moving but don’t know WHERE to start? You’ve been physically limited and inactive for so long that you know you can’t just hit the gym with hour-long workouts 5 days a week. Plus, it’s not realistic with your current health challenges and busy schedule. Well, if that’s how you’re feeling, I want to help!
    I believe that building the BEST health and a strong body includes not just fueling our bodies the right way with nutrient-packed whole plant-based foods, but also building in more activity into our lives, so we can become and stay more physically fit into our later years.
     
    That’s why in this episode, I’m excited to bring to you Guest Expert Courtney McManus, a Certified Personal Trainer and Movement Specialist, with a deep passion to help midlife moms move more.  She’s a mom of three herself, and was the first to bring the Stroller Fitness franchise to SW Florida and operated it for 10 years in Lee & Collier County.
     
    Tune in now to learn the many benefits movement has for our bodies, and how to effectively do your walking to enjoy the most health benefits.  I know you’ll enjoy the pro-tips from Courtney in this episode!

    54 | Why a Calorie is NOT a Calorie for Weight Loss - Especially on a Plant-Based Diet {Plant Based, Lose Weight, Plantbased, Drop Pounds, Whole Foods, Get in Shape, Weight Loss, Goals, Resolutions}

    54 | Why a Calorie is NOT a Calorie for Weight Loss - Especially on a Plant-Based Diet {Plant Based, Lose Weight, Plantbased, Drop Pounds, Whole Foods, Get in Shape, Weight Loss, Goals, Resolutions}

    Have you ever heard of the saying that ‘a calorie IS a calorie’ and believed it? Perhaps you’ve tried very calorie-restricted diets in the past for this very reason. You know, the ones that have you count every single calorie eaten during the day and limit you to tiny portion sizes of certain foods. Sure, it works for a season, by reducing your total daily caloric intake, but constant macros and calorie counting becomes exhausting to keep up long-term.
     
    So, is it ALL about the calories, and should we just assume that all calories are equal? Not quite. There’s definitely more to this story and I want to tell you about it. In this episode, I’ll give you 3 reasons why we can’t treat calories from different foods all the same. Curious to find out more? Then tune in. I’ll meet you on the inside!

Emanuela, Speaking Coach ,

Love the tips!

Anna’s insight is invaluable! Even as a non-plant based eater, I found the information on how to revive lettuce super helpful. I love adding greens to my meals and I always get frustrated when they don’t last. Thank-you Anna for sharing your expertise with us.
