Today’s bonus episode was recorded last year in 2019. This was the first time we attended a plant-based potluck by Pat & Dianne Doyle of Plant Based Dallas. They were recently featured in the Dallas Morning News for the work they have been doing for the last 6 years. Pat & Dianne Doyle are cancer survivors who learned about the power of plant-based foods months after making drastic choices.
To learn more about their story you can listen to episode 8 of our podcast. Here is the link: https://soundcloud.com/plantbaseddfw/pat-diane-interview We got to know them last year and have now attended several of their events. As a matter of fact, I learned about jar swaps from Dianne.
In this episode, Dr. Riz introduces us to the group. This was a casual conversation that I filmed with my iPhone. He talks about the devastating effects that lifestyle choices can have on the body and why he now prescribes plant-based nutrition to his patients. He answers group questions. He also addresses our initiatives to help spread the world about lifestyle medicine. Keep in mind that this was pre-COVID. Some of our events have been canceled as a result.
