Go Plant-Strong!
The Daily Beet: Tips, Advice and Stories

A PlantStrong Thanksgiving

Whole Foods Market Raw Apple Crisp

From late November through December, we enter a season rich with traditions that center around food — most of which involve meat, cheese, butter and sugar.  Not the PlantStrong, nutrient-dense food we’re ultimately after for our health.  Rip recently sent a Thanksgiving pep talk note out to some Whole Foods Market team members that are newly embarking on the PlantStrong path.  He wrote:

“Remember — YOU are in control of the food that enters your mouth and YOU hold the winning hand.  Now if by chance you slip up, I suggest you say five Kale Mary’s before tucking yourself into bed and all will be well. You get two of these over the holidays — so use them wisely….if at all.”

You can get some additional support, tips and great recipe ideas from the  “Think PlantStrong for Thanksgiving” post on the Whole Foods Market “Whole Story” blog.
