At 86 and 56, Ann and Jane Esselstyn are pictures of ageless health and vibrancy and spend their days hiking, doing yoga, gardening, cooking, and spreading the message that diet is the key to living a happy, strong, and disease-free life. They’re sharing their best tips for plant-based health in this episode!

Sometimes, it can seem rare to come across family members who are all plant-based, but the Esselstyns have shown us that it is indeed possible, even across three generations!
In this episode, we talk with mother-daughter duo Jane and Ann Esselstyn about their experience going plant-based as a family long before it was popular, and their drive to spread the message of a healthy plant-based diet as the key to living well.
We also share some tips from their new book: Be a Plant-Based Woman Warrior!
Jane and Ann share their deepest insights about what it was like to realize that the diet they thought was healthy in the 1980s was not actually supporting their highest state of health, and what it was like to start transitioning the entire family into a plant-based diet.
They also share the inspiring work of their husband/father Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, author of Prevent & Reverse Heart Disease, and their son/brother Rip Esselstyn, author of The Engine 2 Diet. They share specifically about the challenges that women face, especially as athletes, and how a plant-based diet can help support women in achieving their best mental and physical health.
