It was so much fun interviewing Lynda and Tom!  Not only did we make the switch to a plant-based diet around the same time, but we were also inspired to do so by the same person--my sister-in-law, Dr. DeOna Bridgeman. Lynda and Tom have sage advice for anyone considering a plant-based diet: just give it a month, and see the HUGE impact it can have on your health! They saw medical issues disappear, the pounds melted away, they are no longer on the brink of needing blood pressure medication, and they have never once felt deprived.  In fact, they wish they'd made the switch to a whole foods, plant-based diet years ago.
