In the past several decades, talking about veganism has often been met with discomfort, assumptions, and suspicion.
Or, like in the case of today’s guest, it was met with jokes that you might be in a cult.
The world is continuing to progress and plant-based diets are becoming more and more popular, but there still isn’t enough focus on the big picture of health.
Dotsie got to know Jason at the Remedy Retreat, a weekend of education and inspiration for people who are struggling to take control of their health where Dotsie and Jason both had the opportunity to speak.
