Today’s guest was on Episode 43, and we’re so happy he’s on again to talk about his upcoming book and new documentary! From the rough-and-tumble streets of Ferguson, Missouri, to the tropical shores of Miami, Florida, Vegan Badass John Lewis has an inspiring story. Growing up on a diet practically devoid of fresh fruits and vegetables, and weighing in at over 300 pounds when he was just thirteen, John decided to make a change. He immersed himself in basketball and football excellence, changed his diet and his life.
Flash-forward to today and he’s a renowned fitness expert, speaker, author, and director/producer of the documentary They’re Trying to Kill Us. John is also on the front lines of social justice – sharing his passion, infectious energy, and belief in the healing powers of plants to change the world.
“We don’t even call them food deserts anymore. We call them nutrition deserts because there is food in these areas, it’s just there’s no nutrition in these areas. So the food that they’re getting is not the most nutritious. I mean, you can find a bodega somewhere, you can find a corner store, you can find a liquor store with snacks in it. So there’s food there, but there’s no nutrition there. And that’s where we’re having all these problems because the options aren’t available.” - John Lewis
