Why did Pass the Kale begin as a FREE class?
Because people deserve access to resources.  DIET is a leading risk factor of disease, but few traditional doctors treat  preventable and reversible diseases such as heart disease, Type II diabetes and obesity with food. Why?  Because healing sickness with food takes hours of patient education and doctors (and most patients) don't have time (or $) for this. Affordable and updated nutrition education services  are in dire NEED, and we want to help.  
Our book/online portal is not about designing a new diet program. Rather, it compiles information from many sources, such as Dr. Joel Fuhrman, Dr. Neil Barnard, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, Dr. Alan Goldhamer, Dr. McDougall and more.  It serves to advance the "Nutritarian" lifestyle, as termed by Dr. Fuhrman, the author of "Eat to Live." Our resources outline the format author, Jodi Patterson, used to get her family (and many other people since) off of the SAD diet; which eventually got her father off of statins and her mother off of blood pressure medicine (while shedding 40 pounds of fat from her own body!).  

Drugs did not heal Jodi's dad, nor did multiple stents.  However, within less than two years of right-eating (after being on drugs for over a decade), he became drug-free.   How?  By eating foods that have powerful disease-protecting and therapeutic effects:  plants.

One of the tricks to learning how to eat healthfully is to realize the old dieting wisdom so many of us were taught in school is just plain wrong.  For instance:

  •    Calorie counting is a waste of time.
  •    Milk is not the best choice for calcium.
  •    Chicken is not "better" than beef.
  •    Food labels cannot be trusted.

Once revealed, people come to understand how dangerous (or helpful) food can be. They realize a whole foods, plant based nutritarian diet is really a lifestyle based on abundance ... not deprivation!  Curious?

There is no time to waste.  Common diseases such as atherosclerosis, Type II Diabetes and obesity are preventable.  The best part is, these diseases can also be reversible via diet … but healing likely won't happen if you maintain the same diet that made you sick!  We know that it is hard for people to realize how "else" to eat, but there are sooooo many amazingly healthful and delicious foods to substitute bad-for-good … eating well is FUN … feeling well is MARVELOUS.   

Order "From the S.A.D. [Standard American Diet] to a W.F.P.B. [Whole-foods-plant-based] Lifestyle" NOW.   

Our Workbook is designed for the beginner!  It is:

1.  Easy to read.  The 8/12" x 11" format allows 
for big print, and makes photo copying 
worksheets easy.

2.  Compact.  We know you are busy.  We give
you just enough information to get you started!

3.  Affordable.  We want you to WRITE IN the
workbook - circle ideas, highlight inspirations 
and jot down thoughts without feeling guilty.

4.   Engaging.  Our positive encouragement
prompts you be involved in the change
process.  We ask you to journal your 
thoughts (and even give you space to
do so), suggest some YouTube videos to
watch, and give you things "TO DO." 

Either way, we just want you to START building new habits ASAP. Remember: the goal is not to learn a new "diet," rather, it is to form a new lifestyle/habits. This requires education AND action.  YOU CAN DO IT!

Are you curious about the benefits of a more "plant-based" diet, but don't know how to begin? Have you heard that a plant-based diet  might help prevent or reverse heart disease (and other ailments)?  Would you like to learn how "food" can almost immediately:    

  • lower your cholesterol levels
  • lower your BMI (body mass index)
  • lower your risk of dying from heart disease
  • advance your overall health and wellness?

In an effort to answer these questions, Pass the Kale implemented a free online educational portal in 2011.  Many people began asking for that course to be put into a book form … so we made one! (Titled "From the SAD to the WFPB Lifestyle:  A four week workbook.) 

Our workbook provides readers with things "To Do" each week to help them make lifestyle changes.  It also houses recipes, shopping tips and behavior change strategies to set them up for success.
