Meet our Herbie of the Week, Lynnette (and her family!). I first heard from Lynnette back in 2012, not quite a year after beginning her plant-based journey. Since then, Lynnette has lost weight and enjoyed more energy and clearer skin, plus reduced allergy symptoms and fitness success. Her husband John is off ADHD medication, has reversed digestive issues, lost weight, and has increased athleticism. And their children have been enjoying plant-proud meals and have begun making their own changes.

Tebben is in the Army (he just finished his two-week Annual Training with his unit!), and  I was so interested to hear more about his plant-based journey in the military. I thought today was the perfect day to share his story. 

HH: Tell us about yourself! How long have you followed a plant-based/vegan diet ...

Perhaps what I love most about our Herbies of the Week series is that it shows how different and unique everyone's journey is. We all end up at the same place — good health, from the same approach — eating whole, plant foods... but we all have such different starting points, different motivations, different ways of going about it. 

For some of us, like Ami, our journey is long with many starts, stops and restarts. For others, the journey is short ...
