π†π€ππ‘πˆπ„π‹ 𝐆𝐀𝐀𝐑𝐃𝐄𝐍, MPH, RDN, LD, is a registered dietitian passionate about investigating and implementing the most effective evidence-based strategies for promoting improved human health and athletic performance, health equity, social justice, and environmental sustainability. One such game-changing strategy in this quest for a better world is that of whole-food plant-based nutrition. This paradigm shifting nutritional approach has the capacity to simultaneously improve human health and fix the broken, exploitative, and unsustainable relationship that we have built with our environment and the countless but dwindling number of other animal species with whom we coexist on this beautiful planet. Whole-food plant-based nutrition is among the most vital solutions at our disposal for improving our wellbeing and the long-term viability of human and other life on Earth. When and where barriers exist, may we work diligently to assure that good nutrition is accessible and affordable for ALL.
