"If you want to make a change this year to healthier eating habits I would recommend watching the daily Facebook Lives at Whole Food Muscle Group.
They post every weekday around 9:15 a.m. and lasts only 10 minutes give or take. They have been so helpful to me! I get tidbits of super useful info that I can then add into my eating routine...like growing broccoli sprouts, health benefits of homemade sauerkraut, why blueberries are amazing, potatoes are a super food, eating 4 brazil nuts monthly, amla powder for cholesterol, and so much more. (I am so impressed by their knowledge that I joined their Club and have access to more content.) They do all the research and reading that I want to do but don't have time to do. They also do a cooking show on Facebook weekly. It's a closed group but just ask for access...tell them Brenda sent you."
My apologies for coming back so late to this, but when I first started to see you talk about it, it got me thinking.
Quite a few members of my family passed away in their 50’s and while I do not know for absolute certain, I am pretty sure much had to do with poor nutrition. I know it was that was with my father. And as I just turned 40 last month, I wanted to continue to eat healthier and ensure I was doing it as best as possible.
I recently told my mother and she cannot wrap her mind around me going plant-based. Even as she is someone who recently lost weight after struggling with it for most of her adult life. I just wish people at least gave it a try or looked into it. The evidence is there, so it isn’t like anyone is guessing. One will only feel better after doing so.
"Thanks for all you guys do.
Having the regular short videos is a great motivator and keeps the mind in the right place."
"Love this website and recommended it frequently to friends and family!"
"Good advises to stay healthy"
"Lots of really informative videos."
"I’m learning more and more by watching. Thank you for sharing your journey."

"Informative on so many topics. The information is fact based rather than opinion based. If you ask a question Robyn has the answer and can support it with research she has read about. If you want to feel better and be healthy I recommend the Whole Food Muscle Club!"
"Truly phenomenal people... I am proud to support RnR and thankful to be a part of the Journey. Trust and believe that what you are seeing is a truly inspiring journey that is health and wellness focused and sincere."
"Dr Robyn and Russ are incredibly educated and well qualified to research and deliver vital information in a palatable and easily understood fashion. Dr Robyn’s curiosity and passion drive a hunger for knowledge, as well as an open and scientific mind. Anybody who wants to maximize their health potential, both physically and mentally, should be subscribing to this page. I’m a long term vegan whose done a bit of research on the subject of health and our diet and I learn something new almost every day by following this page. Thank you, both of you."
S.A.D. & Y.U.C.K. Break the silence and stigma! Jumpstart your day with scientific knowledge, guidance and support with Dr. Robyn and Russ. Witness their journey as they pass along scientifically backed grass roots knowledge and wisdom with a philanthropic approach on a nucleic level in a fun and nonjudgmental environment. Clean out Your Unconscious Convenient Kitchen. (Y.U.C.K.) yes I coined this phrase after looking in my fridge and I was disgusted! Dr. Robyn and Russ focused on the topics of convenience eating and unconscious eating this week. That’s what is in my fridge! Y.U.C.K. Walk away from the S.A.D. (Standard American Diet) “backed and subsidized by Corporate America.” (RE: RnR) I’m looking forward to this journey and cleaning out my fridge! I was lacto vegetarian for 20 plus years, seems oxymoronic now, real cheesy diet. I was vegan for about a year of that without any resources or guidance. 40 pounds overweight now, and 10 years of slipping back into S.A.D., I’m ready to finally claim my inherent human health with the correct tools and scientifically backed resources for a “mostly whole plant based way of eating and intermittent fasting.”
"Such great ideas and inspiration all backed by science"

"I have known Dr. Robyn for a couple of years now. We met online and I have enjoyed staying connected with her. When I saw she was doing a Facebook live one day in October I decided to stop what I was doing and watch it. She and her husband Russ were talking about a BBC documentary they had watched called Eat, Fast Live Longer. They were using FB lives to share their journey into eating a whole food plant based diet and fasting 2 days a week. I was very intrigued.
I changed my whole day around and watched the documentary and was blown away. I even tried my first fast the next day. I wanted to see if I could actually do it. Then I shared the documentary with my husband and he was hooked as well.
We started fasting two days a week from that point forward.
And my next goal was to get my 2 boys and hubby eating more whole food plant based. Keep in mind I grew up in Nebraska and ate red meat literally 4 times a week and chicken the rest. I had rarely if ever had a vegetarian only meal and sometimes we didn’t even have vegetables with our meal. Yup, I was that bad.
But since I have been following Robyn and Russ on their journey we have implemented so many yummy meatless meals into our weekly meals. My boys are loving the dishes we are creating with quinoa, beans, rice, peppers, spinach, corn etc. It’s been so much fun to see us change our diet around and really how easy and fun it’s been to make this change.
Nobody can use the excuse I have kids, I can’t expect them to eat like this. I have two picky boys and we are having no issues. We have even found a way to eliminate milk from cereal by using Almond milk. It’s been a fascinating journey and I am so glad to be on it with Robyn and Russ. Without them we would not be where we are today. If anyone is interested in learning more about moving to a whole food plant based diet, I can honest say work with Robyn and Russ, you won’t be sorry.
We are so grateful to them both."
"No matter where you are on your “Journey”, you need to stop and listen to or read the RnR Journey Facebook page. What are your fitness and health goals? Do you have an image in your mind of perfect heath? If it is anything other than a well oiled, perfectly functioning heart, circulatory, immune system, etc., then your focus may be skewed. It’s time to be healthy and beautiful from the inside out. Robyn and Russ will give you the tools, information and science behind being your best and most beautiful inside self. They provide education that just makes sense and include the resources and the science behind it. Can you get that from any commercial program where paying for the nutritional part of the package is EXTRA! Trust me, take moment and just read. It costs nothing to do that."
"Hey Robyn and Russ, I just wanted to message you and thank you for putting out such great contact into the internet world. You guys are amazing!"

"I just want to say thank you for your help, inspiration, motivation and knowledge!"
"My head has been spinning since the first day I met you! IN A GOOD WAY! You've opened my eyes to so many things and I see food in a whole new light. Thank you for sharing such valuable information and putting people's health as a priority. You two will move mountains - I just know it."
"Love your logo and your enthusiasm! Checking out your videos now and can't wait to explore your website more. You have done an amazing job sharing this knowledge and nutrition science with the world."
"Hello Russ and Dr Robyn,"
"You changed my life and my husband's. His cholesterol has been cut in half. We both have lost about 12 pounds and feel terrific. We don't miss meat, fish, eggs or yogurt or cheese. Thank you so much for all you are doing for the world. We too thought we were eating healthy but couldn't lose weight even though we exercised a lot. Until we changed what we ate. We are truly grateful. I loved your Christmas message about what to say to those comments people make when you say you eat Plant Based.
Thank you again."
“You two are wonderful.
I saw you at Newark Natural foods and have since started intermittent fasting and have lost 10 lbs. Eating healthy is one thing, but finally figuring out how to lose extra pounds has been a true blessing. Thank you! And I so appreciate you untangling all the research out there by separating the truth from fiction.
Keep doing what you're doing!”
"I saw your nonGMO video, that was an eye opener and will be asking the mill about that. Your research has been a huge help!"
