Play • 48 min

Today's brand new podcast episode features plant power.

Plant power? That's right.

By now you've already seen, read, and heard information on both sides of the coin.

Plant-based anything is the best way to go.

Ultimately, you'll need to decide for yourself. Perhaps my conversation with Dr. B will help!
