A vegan trailblazer, public health nutrition expert, speaker, and author, Tracye McQuirter, M.P.H., is passionate about inspiring people to live healthier, happier lives.
"As a vegan for 23 years, I know what it's like to experience vibrant health. But I also know this makes me uncommon among U.S. women, where up to 80% of us are overweight and up to 50% are obese. As a result, we experience among the highest rates of death and disability from heart attack, cancers, stroke, and diabetes.
The good news is that these chronic diseases can be prevented and often reversed by eating plenty of plant-based foods that we all know are good for us. Foods like fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and legumes (or, beans, nuts, lentils, and split peas).
That means eating meals like Curried Chick Peas with Sun-dried Tomatoes; Spicy Kale Salad; Toasted Olive Bread with Fresh Basil and Garlic Sauce; Chocolate Chip Cookies; and Raspberry Banana Smoothies. Surprised? They're all vegan and they're all delicious!
My passion is empowering people to experience vibrant health--by any greens necessary. I'm living proof that you can be healthy, hippy, and happy by eating a wealth of delicious and nutritious plant-based foods."
