Plant-Based DFW

Plant-Based DFW

Welcome to the Plant-Based DFW (Dallas/Fort Worth) podcast weekly show. Every week we will feature guests who are either physicians, dietitians, health coaches or chefs who will tell us about their journeys towards becoming plant-based and how they have now helped others. Every now and then we will feature testimonies by individuals who have seen significant changes in their own lives.
