"It's about you. When you truly love yourself... when you treat yourself well, you're able to treat everyone else so much better."
On this week's episode of the Eat Green Make Green Podcast, I sit down with the inspiring and energetic Monica Otero. Monica and I have followed each other on Instagram for a while, as we both have very similar fields of work, helping men and women prevent and reverse health issues with diet and lifestyle. I mentioned I was going to be out on the west coast this week and we were able to link up for an awesome conversation at a local restaurant in the Newport Beach area. We talk about how Monica was aware from a very young age of the environmental harm done by humans, how most Americans pay for things that provide no real value to them, and the importance of self love. Monica's energy is insane and her desire to help others and the planet is truly inspiring. She is also an amazing chef and her meals go to show just how incredible basic recipes with fresh plant foods and a little love can be. Honestly, I thought Monica was like 27 years old and found out she's almost 40! She is a shining example of the power of living a vegan lifestyle.
