I recently had the pleasure of sitting down for a chat with Stormy Ray of New Norm Co. Her mission is to spread the word about how powerful a low-fat whole food plant-based diet can be to transform lives. A worthy goal indeed! She does this through her website and her podcast, The New Norm Show.

A Bit About Stormy
“Discovering plant-based eating gave me a life I never thought possible. Since childhood, I was always in and out of the doctor’s office with chronic IBS and many many other health issues. It felt like something was always wrong with me and I constantly needed antibiotics for one thing or another. I thought that I was destined to feel horrible forever.
But in my 20’s I discovered a plant-based diet and it changed everything for me. My health rocketed and for the first time in my life, I finally realized what it felt like to feel good- to have energy, to be free of gut pain, to think clearly.
It blew my mind how much what I ate influenced my health and how amazing plant foods were for me.
I just can’t imagine where I would be if I never found this lifestyle. I now feel it’s my duty to spread the word so other people can get their health back too!
Because you can’t achieve your dreams when you feel like crap…and everyone deserves to feel good so they can get the most out of life. ❤
And that’s why I created New Norm Co. To make plant-based eating the new norm. To making feeling good the new norm!”Stormy Ray on her plant-based journey
