26 Days Book


And so it starts.

All I wanted to do was accomplish my first book and the next thing I’m doing is learning how to create videos.

Nowadays, creating ideas has to be all over the internet.  Your business has to speak in digital languages to be effective but when I think about all the misconceptions of diet, health, and foods, I’m compelled to say something.  I’m compelled to learn all these new digital languages.

Actually, we live in a world of misconceptions. We can be led down the wrong path mentally, physically, and spiritually by what is on the Internet, TV, and everywhere we’re exposed to in the same way driving down the street in Las Vegas.

After starting and stopping a blog for nearly ten years, the fruits of my labor are finally budding. I’ve completed 26 Days; A Whole Food Plant-Based Diet and What You Need to Know, a collection of diaries on how I challenged myself to not just diet but how I could transform my diet. Even though that’s not what it looks like in the beginning, in my first 26 days, the lessons in the experience were lasting. And that’s my point. If you were looking for perfection or you were trying to find some kind of magic in how you can become a vegan overnight, I hate to disappoint you.

And with that, I’d like to talk about what we accept as normal everyday knowledge that is so common, that we actually believe to be true. Like for example when I heard someone say that living paycheck to paycheck was normal.

I had to sit and think about that for a while when I realized that it’s not normal to live paycheck to paycheck. It’s common, but not normal.

Perhaps you think I’m trying to start a debate when actually, I’m trying to start the conversation.  Let’s start having these conversations with each other. Let’s rationalize the beliefs we’ve had of what we think is true and perhaps we will lead a brighter future.
