Scot & Emily McKay’s first date was over breakfast at an IHOP in San Antonio, and since that fateful morning, they have made it a habit of breaking all the rules. They own and operate their own online business, live much of the year on the road and make it a point to go to off-the-beaten path locales such as Ethiopia, Cappadocia, India and more.

Coffee, Cookies & Cheese. This was the basic, daily diet for Pam Popper (before she was “Dr.” Pam Popper). She was overweight, unhappy and exhausted. She was 38. And she smoked 4 packs of cigarettes per day. Now, she is one of the preeminent experts in the expanding field of diet and chronic, western disease. She, like Dr. T. Colin Campbell & Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, is now at the forefront of a true revolution. One which advocates eating a whole-foods, plant-based diet, eliminating processed foods (as much as possible) and learning how to tell your doctor, “no”. In this interview, Dr. Popper most importantly shares with us the urgent need to move away from the standard western diet, embracing a whole-foods, plant-based diet (WFPB). She also discusses the tragedy of modern medicine & her new, empowered vision of healthcare.

First, through his “No Impact Man” project where he actively demonstrated how to stop harming the planet by becoming more conscious of our consumption choices. Second, on how to delve more deeply into our individual “calling”, enabling us to powerfully impact others by authentically living our unique gifts.
