Meet our Herbie of the Week: Penny!

Back in 2011, Penny was scheduled for an angiogram and stent when a failed stress test showed she had a coronary artery blockage.

After hearing a friend reversed his own heart disease by going plant-based, Penny spent the entire weekend researching and reading everything she could about "that way of eating". By Monday, she canceled her surgery and changed her diet, even though her doctor didn't think it was going to help ...
