Sharon McRae runs Eat Well, Stay Well, a plant-based health coaching service. She's an expert at balancing a full life with feeding her family (busy husband and three kids) well, and knows how to help others transition to a healthy plant-based lifestyle.

Sharon teaches Food for Life sessions for the Physician's Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM), and conducts eating seminars for a local physician.

In this call, we talk about:

  • how to channel short-term motivation into long-term behavior change
  • what's easy and hard about transitioning to a healthy, plant-based diet
  • her can't-live-without kitchen gadget (and mine too!)
  • the key skills that make plant-based eating easy
  • the importance of tackling more than just nutrition
Sharon kindly provided some links to help families upgrade their meals. If you're into recipes, here's a bunch: http://eatwell-staywell.com/recipes/

anonymous user Great podcast with Sharon McRae. Children can learn healthy eating habits and can actually enjoy it too! I like the accountability idea of letting all of your friends and family know what you are doing. That will definitely help someone to stay on track.
