In today’s episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast we talk to Jane Esselstyn, a fresh and charismatic voice on the plant-based, whole food diet. She brings her perspective and passion as a long-time health and sexuality educator to creating on-ramps to the plant-based way of life. Jane is an avid and inventive designer of plant-based recipes and the co-author of The Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease Cookbook with her next door neighbor and mom, Ann and also helped write recipes for Rip Esselstyn’s book Plant Strong. Together with her husband and fellow educator, Brian Hart, they have three plant-based children. Jane graduated from the University of Michigan, where she competed nationally as a recruited swimmer and rower, and earned a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Kent State University.
In this episode we talk to Jane about the role a plant based diet plays in preventing and reversing heart disease and how this can be applied to younger generations, not just adults. Unfortunately, we find children getting heavier and sicker at younger ages. We discuss the role education needs to play and the role parents need to play. We also discuss the study Jane took part in at the Cleveland Clinic researching health markers in 9-18 year olds.
After the show we talked to Jane about her event, Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease for Women.
