Posted by:

Good Monday, fellow nerds! Usually I have something punny or witty to say about the weather here, but it’s the same old February in the Northeast, so I’ll just huddle in my perpetual blanket shawl while getting up on my weekly soapbox. 🥶🧊

This week, it’s back to my health coaching roots—and back to the roots of plant-based diets. 🌱 Historically attributed to Dr. T. Colin Campbell, the term “plant-based” was coined in 1980 to “emphasize that [his] work and ...

Plant-Based Dairy Labeling Ban? 🥛 Here's How to Reach Consumers Anyway

Posted by:

Good Monday, my fellow nerds! So, today’s dive into plant-based food and consumer education is a little on the political side. ⚖ I don’t often comment on such things (for obvious reasons; I’m looking at you, social media…), but this happens to have direct implications for how plant-based brands connect with and market to consumers.
