As someone who obviously loves to eat... as evident in the many food reviews I've written on this site and the food porn on my Instagram, I'm learning that not everything labelled as "healthy", "natural" or even "vegetarian" is necessarily good for me.
So while I admit it's still a constant struggle to give up bacon, I've committed to Meatless Mondays, Tuesday, Thursdays and Sundays for the last 2 years and have stopped splurging on new shoes so I could buy organic as much as possible.
I'm not about to get all hippy or save-the-animals here but after doing my own research and talking to older generation family members and my friends' parents, who are battling serious chronic health issues, I recognize that diet plays a tremendous role in preventing and treating progressive diseases. I'm in my mid-30's and plan to stay around for a looooong time!!
With that said, I wanted to share this CONTEST for a "trip that will literally change your life"... AND it also happens to be at a beautiful resort in the Dominican Republic!
My husband's ad agency is working with Dr. Shane Williams and the amazing doctors of Forks Over Knives to help promote this inaugural Plant-Based Health Summit. (If you haven't watched FoK, it's voted as one of the most influential documentaries of our time so grab it on Netflix!)
This contest closes on Friday, October 24 at midnight EST.
The winner receives flight, resort accommodations for 10 days, food/drink prepared by top plant-based chefs and admission to the Summit (valued at $3300). Click here for full details.
Good luck, eat well and please help us spread the word!
