Mary Ellen has a certificate in Plant Based Nutrition from Cornell and the T Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies, and is currently completing a plant-based cooking course through Rouxbe culinary school. She also has a passion for learning about health and wellness, passing this important information on to others and spending time in nature with her husband and adorable dog Frankie.
I believe that the science is clear that a plant based diet is essential for our health and the restoration of the health of our planet. I am a Christian of deep faith and personally tie this into my faith. My husband and I see this as our calling from God…as caring for our bodies physically as well as spiritually is important to our faith. Eating mindfully and WFPB has been shown to decrease depression and improve sleep, all of which tie together. Caring for Gods creation (earth) is also important.
Stay tuned for more WFPB classes!
