What I have seen this past year.... Pain, fear, lives being turned upside down. Waiting rooms overflowing, anxious couples holding hands. Parents with young children worried and waiting Adult children holding elderly parents too. And despite all the care that’s offered, It’s hell and nobody gets through it without paying a steep price. And those are the lucky ones.
Only one year ago I was right there with them. I swore that if i was lucky enough to make it out I would dedicate the rest of my life to helping others stay well and avoiding my ordeal. I would use my limited talents, resources and all that I had learned to inform and inspire those who seek wellness. I would help people not only save themselves but to also save the ones they love.
And that's how What to Eat came to be. Yes it’s pretty, positive and practical. But what people who have seen it really connect with is that it’s personal and authentic - it’s my story. An average guy who gets cancer, gets well and sets off on a search for the wholesome delicious food that can keep him well. It’s that journey that resonates with people everywhere. Sick or healthy, they really do want to know just what should they eat.
So here we are March 9th. The pilot has been shot and the spring planting season is coming fast. Myself and my crew stand ready, willing and able to shoot season one, we know how to do that and are eager to dive in. But we can’t move forward without help / guidance / collaboration.
