If there’s one thing Sheri and Nancy both love with equal fervor, it’s food. But they’re in the midst of making a transformative shift in their approach to eating -- moving away from their “meat and potato” midwestern roots and embracing a whole-food, plant-based diet so that they can feel better in their bodies than ever before. Like in so many of their pursuits, Sheri and Nancy were looking for information, inspiration, and a little bit of magic to get the momentum going in the right direction when it came to food and nutrition.
