About Anne Bean

I’m married to a family physician, I’m the mother of five kids, and I’ve been feeding my family mostly plants for more than a decade.

Stick around and I’ll show you what I know:

You can do it!  There’s a lot of confusing information about health online, but it’s universally true that the more plants we eat, the healthier we are.  You don’t have to be an expert or have all the answers in order to make simple, powerful changes for your family.

It’s not expensive. Plants are the original poor man’s food, and you’ll find wiggle room in your budget when you ditch the meat and dairy.  First tip: You don’t need to step foot in Whole Foods.

You don’t have to enjoy cooking.  Thank goodness, because I usually don’t.  The hour before dinner can be downright cah-razy at my house. Anyone else?  There are lots of sites with fancy, fussy plant-based recipes. You won’t find that sort here, but feel free to google them for special occasions like I do.  Personally, I’ve got to get something yummy on the table pronto 9 times out of 10.

Picky eaters have potential to change. I’m living proof. When I switched to a plant-based diet, I thought I only liked two vegetables: corn on the cob and raw baby carrots.  Now I like almost* all of ‘em!

*Beets still taste like dirt to me.

About Scott Bean, MD

I am a family physician, a devoted husband to Anne, and a father to five wonderful children. I have been deeply interested in nutrition and health for many years. Most of the problems that I see my patients struggle with are a direct result of lifestyle choices, and I love helping people understand the connections between what we eat and how we feel, both physically and mentally.

About Our Little Beans

Our children are 1, 4, 7, 9, and 12 years old.  

Because we changed our diet before Anne was pregnant with our eldest, they’ve all been mostly plant-based since the beginning.  They were all breastfed, then weaned to drink what we drink: water!

They all love vegetables, but they definitely have their favorites and ones they could live without.
