My guests today Shoshana and Adam Chaim are a #plantstrong powerhouse couple bringing up 2 plant-based thriving kids!
Though years ago they led a fairly typical – if on the gym going “healthier” side of things lifestyle that including all the standard animal products we’re brought up to believe “we need” to be fit, strong and healthy as athletes and indeed in life.
It took a major wake up call with Adam’s health before their family adopted a plant-based lifestyle. As you might guess it was not a simple over night transition. This really is an inspiring story.
The type of story that needs to be shared because unfortunately too many of us believe our health outcomes lie first at the mercy of our genetics and then purely in the hands of medical professionals and modern medicine.
Not to discount the huge medical advancements we are so incredibly lucky to have access to.
However what if at 35 you were told you wouldn’t make it to 40? That is the devastating news Adam and Shoshana faced.
You know there’s a happy ending however before we get to it and before we share an abundance of goodness to help create healthy plant based recipes for families and especially tips to get kids onboard with this way of eating… here’s a little official bio:

If you enjoyed that chat as much as I did I really recommend you connect with Shoshana and Adam online and to do that I’ll have you all linked up in the show notes via strongbodygreenplanet.com. As you likely noticed they have such a fun banter to their communication which I love.
I’m aware that my advice as a non parent might seem a little idealist or unachievable at times to you if you have kids or even if you have a non vegan partner – though my regular shows with mum (Annie Galli!) do give you a great insight into effectively negotiating living with a non vegan I guess! I’ll have to get mum back soon!
