Praise For The Greenprint: Plant-Based Diet, Best Body, Better World

“I grew up with a misconception that getting older meant getting sicker.  I thought the secret to health was youth.  I now realize the secret is food.  Our bodies are of full of potential that our diets can unlock.  Today, as I strive to be my best, I move toward plants, listen to Marco Borges, and follow a lifestyle that truly reverses aging – The Greenprint.” -- Steve Harvey

“After over 40 years of directing scientific research showing that comprehensive lifestyle changes can reverse most chronic diseases, I have come to realize that vital lifestyle information can only affect change if it resonates with people. Marco Borges has made plant-based eating an aspirational part of pop-culture and attracted some of today’s most influential figures to scale messages of truth and health. The Greenprint is a revolutionary movement that will surely inspire current and future generations to eat more plant-based foods than others in recent American history.”  --Dean Ornish, MD, New York Times bestselling author
