In this episode, we get political—in a good way. Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams joins us to discuss his journey to the plant-based lifestyle, his meaningful work as a public official, and the responsibility he feels toward improving the well-being of his constituents. As a Black leader and former type 2 diabetic, Adams serves as an example that the plant-based lifestyle is not a “white person” thing, but an accessible choice everyone can make to live healthier, more fulfilling lives. We also touch on his experiences while serving 22 years in the police force and get his take on the current social discourse surrounding the Black Lives Matter movement. Adams is thoughtful, informed, relatable, and empowering. Get ready to improve your day and listen in to the conversation.
