There are some foods we can eat to help us live our best life. Plant-based foods encourage your body’s natural function, but it is important to have balance. It’s generally recommended to follow the 80/20 plant to meat ratio, and it’s important to watch out for eating too many carbs and not enough protein.

Holistic Chef Adrienne Falcone Godsell, also known as The Food Whisperer, joined Gayle Guyardo, the host of the global health and wellness show, Bloom, to share more about why plant-based foods are important in our daily eating lifestyle, including plant-based foods we should watch out for, all while cooking a delicious spaghetti squash recipe.
