Know that the risk factors for most chronic disease center around poor diet and physical activity. They’re modifiable and nobody is preventing you from making better choices about either of them. Those things lie completely in your power to change. It’s time for our families to discover together how to address chronic conditions, and improve outcomes together.

I’m sharing a few of my favorite recipes to get you started. You can add other plant powered items to fill out the meal. There are a variety of ideas, ’cause everybody ain’t ready to do a big ‘ole meal.

Whatever you choose will still bring your people together so that you can have that Talk around the Table. You can do all the cooking or make it a potluck!!

We’re pulling for you! Nobody is coming to help us get out of this mess our health is in.

But, if we make a conscious effort to change, do the work, and depend on the Creator, we can have His greatest wish for us, which is being in health.
