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

Robyn O'Brien, author of The Unhealthy Truth.

It’s time for me to give a big, big Engine 2 shout out to Robyn O’Brien, the whistle blowing Mom from Colorado who’s impressive and compelling book, The Unhealthy Truth: How Our Food is Making us Sick — And What We Can Do About It, was just released. When the youngest of her four children came down with a food allergy she starting digging around to find answers. The  relationship she unearthed between the toxicity of America’s food and the connections to big business and big money is nothing short of startling. Robyn was in Austin, Texas promoting her book Friday. She spoke at the Livestrong headquarters at noon and Book People on North Lamar at 6:00 PM. Robyn will be making waves and turning heads as her message reaches the masses. Again, here’s an E2 shout out to you Robin.  You got spirit and  guts!! Go get em!!!!

 

Robyn and Rip meet to share their message and books.

As a friend to other firefighters, he transformed the way Austin ’s Engine 2 firehouse ate in order to save a firefighting brother’s health. Now, as the author of The Engine 2 Diet, Rip is teaching people the irrefutable connection between what they put in their mouths and their ability to reach their ideal weight and their ideal health.
