123: Camilla Brinkworth: Transforming Lives Through Veganism and Plant-Based Living
In a world filled with various dietary choices, the decision to embrace a vegan lifestyle is often more than just a change in what's on your plate; it's a profound transformation that touches every aspect of your life. For Camilla Clare Brinkworth, this transformation has been nothing short of extraordinary.
Camilla's journey to veganism began with a deep sense of compassion for animals and a growing awareness of the environmental impact of our dietary choices. She realized that choosing to be vegan was not just about what she was eating; it was about adopting a holistic philosophy that aligned with her values of kindness, sustainability, and overall well-being.
Chronic pain was a constant companion in Camilla's life until she decided to make the switch to a whole food plant-based diet. Within weeks of going vegan, she experienced a remarkable reduction in her pain levels, particularly in her neck, where she had been suffering from arthritis. The pain that had once been a daily burden gradually disappeared, leaving her with a newfound sense of freedom and vitality.
But the benefits of veganism didn't stop there. Camilla's mood improved significantly as she continued to incorporate more plant-based foods into her diet. She transitioned from being an unhappy individual to waking up every day with gratitude and joy. Her baseline became one of positivity, and she couldn't be happier with the transformation.
Today, Camilla Brinkworth is not only an advocate for veganism but also a living testament to its transformative power. She embraces a lifestyle that prioritizes non-cruelty to animals, environmental sustainability, and individual health. Her journey showcases the incredible potential for change that lies within each of us.
Camilla is also passionate about raising awareness of sustainable alternatives to traditional dietary choices, such as aji flower oil, which she believes can revolutionize the way we approach health and nutrition.

119: Plant Exclusive Culinary Wisdom with Jason Demchok
In this episode of the Plant-Based Eating for Health podcast, I have the distinct pleasure of talking with Jason Demchok, a chef and lifestyle medicine enthusiast who shares his personal journey towards a whole food plant-based diet.
Jason shared how meeting with Dr. Lou, an MD with expertise in environmental toxins and hormones, changed his life by recommending a plant-based diet. This conversation highlights the power of lifestyle medicine and the importance of making conscious food choices for our health.
In particular, the episode focuses on the benefits of fermenting vegetables for improved gut health and overall well-being.
Fermentation is an age-old process that has been used for over 8,000 years to preserve vegetables by selectively breeding probiotics that protect food from bad bacteria. Jason explains that fermenting creates a whole ecosystem of bacteria inside the food, which can lead to improved gut health, digestion, and nutrient absorption.
Fermenting is also an easy and fun process to learn, and Jason encourages listeners to try fermenting at home. He even offers a free lesson to anyone who contacts him after listening to the podcast.
Jason and I discuss the harmful effects of consuming animal products and processed foods, and the importance of incorporating a variety of colorful vegetables in one's diet.
We touch on the addictive nature of cheese, the harm caused by dairy farming, and the role of food manufacturers in creating products that are designed to be addictive. The conversation emphasizes the importance of the microbiome and how plant-based diets can heal the gut.
To start a basic plant-based diet, Jason recommends beginning with greens, organic beans, apples, and cucumbers. He also recommends using whole food dressings such as tahini and balsamic vinegar.
If you're interested in trying your hand at fermenting vegetables, Jason recommends using mason jars with fermentation tops, which are available on Amazon. He emphasizes the importance of cleanliness when fermenting and recommends using organic vegetables for the best results.
This episode of the Plant-Based Eating for Health podcast highlights the power of fermenting vegetables for improved gut health and overall well-being. By adopting a whole food plant-based diet and incorporating fermented vegetables into your meals, you can take control of your health and enjoy the benefits of a healthier gut. So why not give it a try?
