Meet our Herbies of the Week: Sara & Jeff!

After losing his dad to congestive heart failure, Jeff started researching different diets when he came across a plant-based diet. Following a long discussion with his wife, Sara, they both agreed to adopt a plant-based diet as an experiment for 3 months.

It wasn't long before for their experiment became a lifestyle change, especially when Jeff lowered his blood pressure in two weeks! He also lowered his cholesterol and they both lost a combined total of 35lbs.

In addition to their newfound health, Sara and Jeff also noticed improvements when it came to their running abilities and are teaching their 4 children how to make better choices when it comes to their health.

I'll let Sara take it away!

I emailed the cruise company (Costa) ahead of time about our dietary requirements, and they assured me they would accommodate us. To their credit, Costa offered three set dinner menus each night, one always being fully vegetarian. Unfortunately, the vegetarian option was always cheesy, and when the kitchen is cooking ...
