There is a marvelous video that my friend Elizabeth brought to my attention. She posted the link yesterday on Facebook. I took a look and decided it is too good to pass up.
Rip Esselstyn is a former All-American swimmer, pro-triathlete and retired Firefighter. Inspired by his father (Caldwell Esselstyn), he persuaded his Austin Fire Department’s Engine 2 Company to adopt a plant-based diet. The story is written in his best selling book: Engine 2 Diet: The Texas Firefighter’s 28-Day Save-Your-Life Plan that Lowers Cholesterol and Burns Away the Pounds.
I could tell you about the video, but Rip is his own best advocate. Besides he is eloquent, passionate and humorous. AND he’s kinda nice to look at too! Do yourself a favor and watch this short video!
