We discuss how to know if a plant-based diet is right for you and some common pitfalls people have when they go plant-based. Many people can eat a balanced diet and thrive, but some people need to pay closer attention to the nutrients they are taking in. And finally, we talk about mitochondria…if your thinking mitoWHAT?
