The Plant Pledge is not just a book, it's a social initiative. The book represents a way for entire families to become more educated about how they can live healthier, happier lives simply by learning about the importance of eating more whole foods and less processed foods. It's a lesson that extends well beyond the dinner table.

We all know the golden rule of good parenting is to take care of yourself and emulate the behaviors you want your children to follow. Your children eat what you put in front of them, so by simply choosing healthy foods like fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts, and seeds, you will instill a lifetime of good habits. Join me and your local community in a sustainability effort to educate our future generations.

This book came about because I volunteered in my daughter's public school classroom. During National Celebrate Reading Week, I wanted to bring in a book about vegetables to help encourage the children to get excited about learning to eat healthy food. I searched all over the internet for children's books on the topic of whole food, and I couldn't find anything that highlighted the importance of eating more vegetables and less processed foods. That was when I decided to write one myself. It is my hope that this book will make a difference in the lives of every family that reads it, and that is the ultimate goal, to inspire people to make better choices about what they eat so they can feel better and live happier, more balanced lives.
