Social Justice & Why We Should Eat Plants with Dr. Milton Mills

Oct 19, 2022

We are so fortunate to have a guest who was with us when it all started. He was our very first guest on the Switch4Good podcast, so it’s only fitting that he should join us for our very special 200th episode. You will even see him on our Switch4Good staff page, that’s how closely we work with him. We’re so thrilled and truly honored to have with us, the esteemed Doctor and vegan activist, Dr. Milton Mills! For those of you who missed our first episode, Dr. Mills earned his medical degree from Stanford University and did his Internal Medicine residency at Georgetown University Hospital. He now practices critical care medicine in the D.C. area. Dr. Mills was also the lead plaintiff in PCRM’s lawsuit asking for warning labels on milk, and he also stars in the very excellent documentaries “What the Health” and “The Invisible Vegan.”

Tune in to this very special, must-listen-to episode as Dr. Mills shares his boundless wisdom with us!

Fiber is our Favorite F Word with Diabetes Dietitian & Author Lauren Plunkett

Fiber is our Favorite F Word with Diabetes Dietitian & Author Lauren Plunkett

Who says you have to be defined by a type 1 diabetes diagnosis? Who says your life can’t continue to be just as rich or fulfilling? Certainly not today’s guest. Lauren Plunkett is a registered dietitian, a diabetes education specialist, a fitness instructor, a dynamic national speaker, a plant-based nutrition advocate, and a shining beacon of positive energy, exemplifying how to live your best life with type 1 diabetes. And she does it all with so much empathy, a keen intellect, and a smile so radiant I swear you could see it from ten miles away. Lauren is also the author of the book Type One Determination, which I love because it’s from the perspective of someone who’s both a patient and an expert, offering applicable strategies to anyone suffering from type 1 diabetes. Some of our listeners might even recognize her name for her contribution to our very own Switch4Good blog. 

From Prison Rags to Plant Based Riches with David Israel

From Prison Rags to Plant Based Riches with David Israel

Okay, today’s guest has an incredibly compelling story. He’s someone who truly knows how to turn adversity into opportunity. Uber-successful serial entrepreneur, David Israel, has owned, among other things, a nightclub, a jewelry store, a chain of upscale pawnshops, and a maintenance company. But what’s most interesting, is that in 2011, while enduring the most personally challenging period in his life, he founded POP! Gourmet Foods, taking the snack industry by storm and forming partnerships with globally recognized retailers, nationally and internationally.
