About five years ago, Vicki Spradling made a change.
It wasn’t her hair or her fashion choices, or even to exercise more. It was her diet.
It wasn’t in how much she was eating, necessarily, but what she was ingesting.
After watching several documentaries, reading several books and talking with several experts, Spradling began following the Whole Food Plant Based diet.
In that five-year span, she has shed the pounds, found a whole new level of energy and tossed all of the medications she was taking, as well as reduced her risk of heart disease.
Not long after a heart attack, her husband followed suit.
The pair have taken to sharing their stories, their research and more with the community.
They host once-a-month pot lucks where they share recipes and research with the Lets Get Healthy Seguin Guadalupe County Group.
They invite others who have made the change or who see the benefits of the diet to speak to their group.
They invite community members and encourage them to come talk with them, see what it’s all about and to make a change.
The benefits of a healthy diet can go far beyond the physical appearance. It doesn’t hurt to give it a try.
