Stories of Transformation
About a year after moving to Melbourne in late 2013 my marriage ended. It was, as you might imagine, a very difficult time. I slumped into a state of despair but there was no time to feel sorry for myself, I had to keep working as I had a family to provide for.
On this journey I’ve been inspired by other people’s journey’s too. One such man is Andrew Taylor. You may recall the Australian man who ate only potatoes for a year, well that was Andrew.
The person who actually started me down this pathway of whole food plant based is actually a man by the name of Rich Roll. Somehow I stumbled upon his podcast (https://www.richroll.com/category/podcast/) without knowing anything really about his story.
But it turns out he has an amazing story, and also follows the whole food plant based diet.
