For this Hunstanton vegan runner the future's bright, and plant based
Blossom where you're planted is the message on Kate Dunbar's facebook page, and as a vegan warrior her life has been a transformation since changing her lifestyle to a wholefood and plant-based diet.
Her lifestyle choice as it were, was partly because she suffered a severe type of arthritis.
Her Twitter status says:"Whole food plant-based vegan runner, off meds -recovered from PsA, patient advocate, community art projects, ceramicist, graphic designer, & community orchard carer."
Kate can often be seen running down Hunstanton promenade followed by a refreshing swim in the sea. At the age of 58 she is living life to the full now that becoming a vegan has allowed her to live an active and physical lifestyle that before this consisted of crippling arthritis.
Kate has released a podcast and she said: "I hope this podcast with Clint Paddison @plantbasedhpuk gives others courage to pursue their own journey to wellness, and health professionals more confidence to inform their patients on the potential benefits of a whole food plant based diet."
Kate is involved with the parkrun at Hunstanton every Saturday morning and is keen to show the correlation between a vegan diet and an active and healthy lifestyle.
She said" There are many top sports people such as Serena Williams, Lewis Hamilton and Novak Djokovic, who are vegan."
Supermarkets cater for vegan food and it is easy and affordable to try out the vegan lifestyle which is meat and diary free to benefit not only helping the planet but personal health.
Kate says planting the idea is the first step to weeding out a healthier lifestyle.
