So What Is This Whole-Plant Food Diet?

Well, I'm glad you asked and here are 18 reasons why Whole-Plant Food diets are so important.

It’s hard to imagine anything healthier than consuming a diet that’s abundant in whole, plant-based foods. By whole, plant-based foods, I’m referring to foods that are grown in and from the ground, have little or no processing, never had eyes, a mom, or a dad, and didn’t come from anything that had eyes, a mom, or a dad. These include fruits, vegetables (especially leafy greens!), whole grains, beans, legumes, nuts, and seeds (raw nuts and seeds are best). Here are 18 great reasons to eat a diet that’s abundant in whole, plant-based foods. The more whole, plant-based foods in your diet, the better: (click on any link to read more or scroll down to read about all 18 reasons)

What Our Customers Say About Us?


Terri has been a great inspiration and is easy to work with and extremely giving of her time. She was there for us to answer questions and offer help and was always just an e-mail away. I would highly recommend a plant-based eating program and working with Terri will be a bonus for you.


I enjoyed that Terri made the program so easy and “do-able”. By never reprimanding, and always being reasonable, she convinced many of us right through the program. She always made sure that we were ok and answered any questions.


I never thought that being a vegan would solve most of my health issues, I even sleep more, feel great and look younger. Thank you Terri because you helped me understand how important it is to make better choices in life!


I highly recommend without reservation a whole food plant based diet and I can’t think of a more knowledgeable, supportive, and capable coach than Dr. Terri Quenzer and her program to assist and help you navigate your journey to better health.
