World Diabetes Day!

In acknowledgement of “World Diabetes Day”… did you know that current studies show that diet changes are the cornerstone to treating type 2 diabetes? The studies also suggests that people whose diets were based mainly on plant-derived foods—that is whole grains, beans, fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds—were less likely to develop diabetes, compared with people whose diets are fattier or centered more on ‘meat’ dishes.

For more information about how a primarily plant-based diet can help reverse and in some cases eradicate diabetes, check out The Vegan Diet How-To Guide for Diabetes from the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) and/or watch PCRM president Dr. Neal Bernard’s “Program for Reversing Diabetes” presentation.


And because statistics show that compared to the general population, African Americans are disproportionately affected by diabetes:

4.9 million, or 18.7 percent of all African Americans aged 20 years or older have diabetes.
African Americans are 1.8 times more likely to have diabetes as non Hispanic whites.African-Americans

Check out the Chicago Department of Public Health Commissioner, Dr. Terry Mason’s (Forks Over Knives Presenter) interview on Supreme Master Television about incorporating more plant-based foods as a way towards obtaining better health and reversing illness.


Let’s eat for better health!

“365 Days of Plant-Based Cooking, Eating & Living…Made Easy!!!” 2015 Calendar Project Update.

For those of you who have not been keeping up with the progress of this project, you may not know that in order to help cover the cost associated with design, printing, marketing and distribution of creating this calendar, it is my goal to launch a Kickstarter campaign in early 2014. However, because of Kickstarter’s artist product and video guidelines, my initial intent for the concept of “365 Days of Plant-Based Cooking, Eating & Living…Made Easy!!! 2015 Calendar Project has taken on some changes. As a result, I am forced to move beyond my comfort zone and continue to push forward to create and produce a calendar that stays true to both my professional & personal mission of “Changing the World One Vegetarian Meal at a Time!” by sharing in a clear, practical and concise way, easy to use recipes and information that highlights and promotes plant-based eating, cooking and natural/wholistic living on a monthly and daily basis.

So, in order to meet Kickstarter’s artist product and video guidelines, some of the content and possibly the title of the calendar may change. It won’t change too much from the original concept, however, the content concentration will be more in alignment with “sharing” plant-based cooking, eating and nutritional/wholistic information, rather than giving “self-help” tips, suggestions or advice.

On a brighter side of the process moving forward, the graphic design team and myself have created the cover and 2 inside pages for the calendar so far. Here’s a preview of what the cover for the calendar is possibly going to look like. And although this may or may not be the final proof, I would love your feedback and would be interested in knowing what you think of it thus far.

A big ‘Ups’ and huge thank you goes out to Joe Wagner and the design team at ATIUQ89 Graphic Designs & Printers for all of your hard work, patience and graphic design expertise. “We got this!” (https://www.facebook.com/ATIUQ89GraphicDesign) In addition, I would also like to thank Systah Daryl Davis for her wisdom, advice and guidance towards this project.

I’m working on eating oatmeal more…I just have to continue to find creative ways to eat it other than in the form of mush…ugh!!! :-( and cookies…yay!!! :-) What’s your score? Are you getting all 8 in?


“365 Days of Plant-Based Cooking, Eating & Living…Made Easy!” 2015 Calendar Update

Greetings All…It’s been a while since I’v made a post on this page. Mainly, because I have been craaaa….zeee busy! For the third (3rd) year in a row I have taken on the position and responsibility of “Head Chef/Kitchen Manager for Legacy International’s Global Youth Village Summer Camp (www.globalyouthvillage.org).

With a focus on “International Exchange” – “Peace Building” & “Leadership Training” …they serve an all vegetarian/vegan menu/cuisine and I am very happy to be returning.

However, having to prepare food for up to 110 (max at one point), 3 times a day, 7 days a week, manage a staff of 3 while ensuring that the food gets out on time, in a very hot, face paced and extremely busy kitchen, doesn’t leave very much time for me to work on my calendar project right now…especially if I plan to include sleep somewhere in my day…LOL :-)

Initially, it was my intent to post my Kickstarter video to Kickstarter before I started working here, but things didn’t quite work out that way. Once I thought the video was complete and ready to post, glitches were found in the video that I am in the process of correcting. With my working time here at GYV coming to an end soon (July 31st), it is my plan to focus a lot more of my energy and time on this project.

That’s the “365 Days of Plant-Based Cooking, Eating & Living…Made Easy!” 2015 calendar update. Thank you for your patience and support and I will keep you posted on the progress of the Kickstarter video for the calendar project, moving forward.

Thanks again for your support.
