Jessica Murnane is the author of the new cookbook, One Part Plant. The idea behind the book and her awesome website is to inspire people to eat one plant-based meal per day. It started as an attempt to feel better after suffering from Endometriosis (Endo), a disorder that can cause severe period pain, blood-clotting, and infertility. It’s very common for people to suffer with Endo and not know they have it. Through the suggestion of a friend, Jessica started changing her diet and it helped manage the symptoms. Since it worked for her, it inspired her to try to help others going through the same pain.
What I love about Jessica and her intentions to help people feel better is that there’s nothing scary about her approach to wellness. It’s simple and easy to take her advice without committing to any scary “diet.” She’s as real as her approach to eating and living well and I was super excited to ask her these five questions to learn more.
If someone wants to make the change in their diet to introduce eating one part plant, what is the first step they should take?
What’s the best lessons you’ve learned from a podcast guest and how has it impacted your life?
But here are some of my favorite lessons:
Ally Hilger teaching me about Focus Wheels.
Giselle Wasfie helping me understand how to confront past trauma.
Ruby Warrington sharing what “doing your dharma” means.
So you have a mini series on your podcast where you ask question about “things that freaked [their] week” and we want to know, what are the things that have freaked your week?
