Tracye McQuirter on Enjoying Transitions
Welcome to day four of the Kickstart. Focus on eating vegan all day. Load up on fruits, vegetables, beans, and grains. Whether you are eating out or preparing your own meals, you will love these foods. They are delicious and satisfying.

A Message from Tracye McQuirter, M.P.H.
Enjoy the transition. Celebrate the fact that you're taking steps toward getting healthier. That alone is a tremendous achievement. See this transition not as a burden, but as an adventure. It's a life-changing experience. It's not every day that people take their health and the health of the planet into their own hands by eating more plant-based foods.

Cruciferous vegetables such as cauliflower stimulate your liver to make more of the enzymes that remove cancer-causing chemicals from your body. The effect begins within 48 hours of eating them. Cooking them does not destroy their effectiveness.
