Saturday, November 7, 4:45AM – we dropped the car in long term parking and trudged to the airport. Six hours later we were racing along I78 leaving the New York City skyline behind us, heading straight into the sun. Our first stop was at the home of Dr. Joel Fuhrman a whole-food, plant-based physician and author of Disease-Proof Your Child and Eat to Live.

He and his family welcomed us with open arms, salad and soup before we headed to Dr. Fuhrman’s office to set-up and record our interview with him. The time spent was informative and compelling and the resulting video, priceless. Sunday morning, after Julieanna was interviewed for Dr. Fuhrman’s website, we hit the highway again, into Pennsylvania, over the Poconos, through Scranton and into Ithaca, NY where we met Meghan and Mikaela from the T. Colin Campbell Foundation who put us up, fed and entertained us. We visited E Cornell Online (where Julieanna is currently working, albeit from home in LA) before meeting T. Colin Campbell, Professor Emeritus at Cornell and author of The China Study, and sitting down to another amazing interview at his home overlooking picturesque Lake Cayuga.

Later, after being treated to another great meal, we climbed into our well-packed Saturn Outlook and following the sage advice of Gigi, our intrepid GPS locator, made the four and a half hour trek back to Newark in three hours and forty-five minutes. We’re thrilled with our first round of interviews, our footage is great. We hit the road again in early December, this time a little closer to home in the Bay Area. Our sincere thanks to Dr. Joel Fuhrman, his family and Elijah; Meghan and Mikaela; T. Colin Campbell and his wife Karen. Now eat your vegetables!!!
