|Feeling like a star myself with my sunglasses|
So, of course, in true stalker fashion, I follow a number of the authors of the books I read, including Rip Esselstyn, former triathlete and firefighter. He is now employed by Whole Foods and I saw a post by Engine 2 Diet that said he would be at Whole Foods Kahala this past Saturday. Well, luck was on my side as I was going to be in Honolulu the whole weekend. Rest assured, I promise I would NOT have flown to HNL just to see him. I would have thought about it but not done it. Promise.
Rip's dad is famous! He is Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn, author of Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease. Perhaps you recall seeing him in Forks Over Knives. Certainly if you're well read about the importance of eating a plant strong diet for your heart, you have heard his name come up. I'm sure Rip must have been nurtured from a young age on the importance of being plant strong.
The Engine 2 Diet book has some great and simple recipes in the back. Order one on Amazon and let me know what your favorite recipe is.
