Reversing the Aging Process with a Whole Food, Plant-Based, Vegan Diet
Obesity, cancer, and high blood pressure were only a few of the conditions Linda Middlesworth was living with when a chance meeting with a neighbor she barely knew would change Linda’s life forever.
At the age of 44, Linda had grown accustomed to not feeling well. Not sure where to turn for help, she confided in her new friend while walking their dogs at a local park.
“Check out Dr. McDougall’s work,” her friend advised.
Eager to feel better, Linda picked up a copy of The McDougall Plan: 12 Days to Dynamic Health.
Immersing herself in the book, Linda took the information to heart. Within a few days of implementing Dr. McDougall’s information, Linda began to feel better.
The first to admit she was 100% on target, once she adhered to Dr. McDougall’s protocol she lost 50 pounds, reversed her high blood pressure and cancer, and had a completely new lease on life.
Fast forward 34 years. Linda Middlesworth is a force to be reckoned with. Her passion for the vegan lifestyle goes beyond her own health. She is a vegan mentor and very committed to animal advocacy.
V-Dog is Born
Realizing dogs were being subjected to a decline in their health due to the poor quality of most off the shelf dog brands, Linda and her late husband knew there had to be a better way to feed dogs.
In 2005, their dream became a reality and v-dog was born. V-dog was the first vegan dog food company in the USA and remains a family owned, vegan business to this very day. www.v-dog.com
No Stone Unturned
An in-demand vegan lifestylist, Linda keeps busy speaking and lecturing at schools, universities, churches, state agencies, and libraries as well as appearing on podcast shows.
In addition, she teaches step, body sculpting, and Pilates at California Family Fitness and is a Personal Trainer.
Her personal mission is to help people regain their health and well-being through nutrition education and by showing them how to lead a lifestyle of compassion to promote both healthful eating and animal advocacy.
Before the shutdowns from the pandemic, Linda could often be seen leading a group of shoppers on grocery store tours to help them identify and make healthful eating choices.
As a vegan mentor, Linda is committed to helping her clients transition to a vegan lifestyle. This means, no matter where they are on the path to wellness, she helps them make healthy, plant-based food choices.
Linda supplies her clients with recipes and informational books from Dr. Neal Barnard, Dr. John McDougall, Rip Esselstyn, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, Dr. Michael Greger, and Dr. T. Colin Campbell.

What's Changed in 100 Episodes
When I began Plant Based Eating for Health Podcast show, little did I know where my journey would take me.
Join me as I pull back the curtain on my progression from a plant-based eater, who vowed to never identify as a vegan, to now hosting two shows; this one, and Vegan Visibility Podcast show.
Going further into the plant-based lifestyle, I'm finding it to be one of the most spectacular experiences of my life.
What started as an experiment for my health, turned into becoming a voice for the voiceless, a concerned citizen for the Climate Crisis and a woman in her late sixties more committed to health than ever before.
They're Killing Our Children
Over the past decade, there has been a marked decline in the health of our children as well as an increase in obesity.
According to the CDC, in 2018, the prevalence of obesity was 19.3% (14.4 million) children and adolescents. As well, obesity percentages increase with age and race. It’s well documented that obesity puts anyone at a much higher risk for highly preventable diseases.
Children are innocent victims with the prevalence of profits over people initiatives by the food industry.
With food manufacturers continuing to produce unhealthy choices for consumers, this has had a major trickle-down impact on the overall school lunch programs throughout the United States.
While many parents are not even aware of how unhealthy the school food programs actually are, one woman who is on a mission to change the way children are fed in schools is Maria Solanki.
Trying a number of ways to have an impact, including completing a 500-page charter school application that took years to completed due to the complexity of the research involved, Maria turned the denial of the application as fuel for her life’s work; improve the food selections within the school system in her area.
From a concerned mother to a political candidate, Maria is merely scratching the surface of the changes she plans to be a part of through her political platform. http://www.mariaforstudents.com
Out of the Mouth of Babes is the Truth about Eat Nowadays
Disrupting the food industry, one nugget at a time, Nowadays is re-defining what cravings for junk foods are all about. Fried junk foods are often thought of as guilty pleasures, but healthier options don’t usually quite scratch that itch to indulge.
At Nowadays, co-founder and CEO, Max Elder, doesn’t think cravings should come with a side of guilt. Nor should food damage your body or the planet to be delicious.
Nowadays, a venture-backed food tech startup making Plant-Based meats, with only a few simple ingredients and an unparalleled nutritional profile, is fast becoming a favorite of those who want a healthier option to current food choices.
Nuggets Lead the Way
Nowadays’ flagship product, tasty Plant-Based nuggets, made with a handful of simple ingredients, is overwhelmingly approved by the harshest food critics, children.
Nuggets are the perfect category for Nowadays. According to Elder, nuggets is about an $8 billion category in the United States.
With health in mind, the Nowadays nuggets have seven simple ingredients. Hands down, it has the cleanest ingredient list and the best nutritional profile of any nugget on the market; Plant-Based or animal-based.
Unlike many Plant-Based foods, the ingredients the Nowadays nuggets are easy to recognize and pronounce; organic, non-GMO yellow peas grown by US farmers; yeast and mushroom extracts for a distinct meaty flavor; whole wheat for a wholesome and crunchy breading; maple fiber to replace eggs; and a bit of sunflower oil for both golden color and fried crunchiness.
