Are we heading towards a quarantine summer?

Maybe, maybe not. But either way, it is always great to continue to nourish our minds with good books, am I right? Personally, even though I love the tangible element of a book in my hands, I actually read better with an audiobook at 1.5x while riding my bike or walking along the boardwalk, with a mask of course!

Here is my list for your summer mindscape:

  1. Looking for a good starter book to jump into a plant-based lifestyle, which is actually evidence-based? Check out The Vegan Starter Kit by Neal Barnard, MD, FACC
