Just 1 Thing (at a time) 4 Health

“Because changing habits and lifestyle is daunting without support.”


Featured Doctor:    Kim Scheuer, MD

Dr. Kim Scheuer is Board Certified in Family Medicine and Lifestyle Medicine, primarily located in Aspen and Basalt, CO and is affiliated with Aspen Valley Hospital. She graduated from Univ of Rochester School of Medicine & Dentistry, has more than 20 years of medical experience. Dr. Scheuer specializes in family medicine and began her journey into the WFPB world as a result of learning about the nutritional value of cruciferous vegetables. Recognizing she didn’t like vegetables, a friend suggested she blend them in order to drink them in her efforts to prevent breast cancer.

Now Dr. Scheuer brings her knowledge and experiences from her own WFPB diet and lifestyle and what she gains from collaborating with other doctors, to share these life-changing options with her patients. She advocates to help others prevent cancer and reduce the chronic illnesses associated with inflammation, infections and more.

Finding ways to get the vitamins and nutrients from cruciferous vegetables can be a challenge until you try a few of the ideas Dr. Scheuer shares in her Just 1 Thing Challenge video.

Joe’s Healthy Meals
According to Joe, cruciferous vegetables all belong to what farmers refer to as “cole crops”. Cauliflower, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, kale, cabbage, bok choy, collard greens, and the like are loaded with vitamins A, C, and B6, as well as folic acid, and fiber. They also are filled with antioxidants which help your body fight the bad stuff. Your diet should be filled with these types of vegetables and roasting them is a tasty way to prepare them. Here is a juicy delicious roasting recipe.

The 7 Original Heroes of the Movement

Honoring the 7 Original Heroes
of the Whole Food, Plant-Based Lifestyle Movement

Honoring Those Who Continue to Lead the Way…

Over the next several weeks and months, we will share a special video from each one of the 7, that is hosted by a Hippocrates Doc who will comment on the subject matter and answer any questions you may have. We are honored to join forces with these Original 7 and every other doctor who is a part of the Movement to bring a greater level of awareness, health and wellness to adults, children, pets, animals and the planet.

Enjoy what we’ve put together honoring the 7 Original Heroes of the Whole Food, Plant-Based Lifestyle Movement.

This week, we want you to get to know 
Dr. Michael Greger 
Licensed General Practitioner Specializing in Clinical Nutrition.

Dr. Greger works to persuade people to change their eating habits from a Western pattern diet to a whole foods, plant-based diet. It is this shift, he says, that can help prevent and reverse a host of chronic diseases. It is because of this that he is critical of other doctors for not encouraging their patients to adopt plant-based diets and avoid animal-based products, and the US government for giving watered down advice about healthy eating in a bid to protect the economic interests of nutritionally unhealthy food producers.
