Welcome to Fruit & Stuff for Healthy Living!

Two Cultures and a Wealth of Plant-Based Treasures

I grew up in Texas, and I have lived half of my adult life in Mexico. In Texas, home-grown tomatoes, green beans, okra, strawberries, peaches, watermelons and pecans were just a few of the plant foods that I learned to love. In Guadalajara, Mexico, where I went to live as a twenty-two-year-old bride, I was introduced to an array of fruits and vegetables that I had never heard about–colorful pitahayas, fragrant guavas, cherimoyas, mangos, avocados and chayotes. Giving up meat motivated me to eat more fruit and vegetables, and it has made a significant difference in my health. However, everyone can enjoy the benefits of eating more fruit & stuff whether or not they choose to go vegan.
