Jump-Starting Your Nutrition:

  • RECIPES - For healthy and great-tasting meals, snacks and desserts, you will find everything you need in Devoted Bodies and at Devoted Bodies will get you on the plant-based path with all the helps you initially need. The Forks Over Knives website is a go-to spot for additional recipes—from Indian food to game-day finger foods! Both resources use whole plant foods, no oil, no added sugar and delicious spices.
  • SUPPLEMENTS - If you use supplements, you owe it to yourself to explore the science behind the whole-food vs. the vitamin approach. Most people take supplements to bridge the gap between what they eat and what they should eat. The key is getting in more plant foods. For over two decades, Juice Plus+® is the only supplement Judy and her family has used.She has recommended them for a couple of reasons—the products are food (with food not supplement labels) and there are 38+ published studies showing the exact benefits derived from taking the products.
