Plant Power Event

This event is the kickoff event of an overdue collaboration with the dynamic fitness entity in Hicksville, Will-Power Fitness (WPF). This event will introduce the WPF crowd to Beetroot and Brooke's story of how she came to find food as medicine.


Event description:

Brooke Gordon was a powerhouse athlete until health problems quickly slowed her down. At age 15, she found herself getting prescribed steroids and inhalers for breathing problems that spiraled into adrenal burnout, weight gain, and depression. To top it off, she tore both of her ACLs. After searching for answers for 10 years and seeing more than 15 doctors, she found food to be medicine.

Hear her full story, try some of her amazing food,  and stock up on her famous salty chocolate bars.

You will leave inspired, shocked, or challenged. Maybe even all three.

Admission is $10; Open to everyone

If you have not yet heard my story, I would love to have you. My physical and emotional struggles, all stemming from a poor diet, have taught me so much and I love to share that experience. Maybe you will find a light at the end of the tunnel for what you, your child, or your spouse are experiencing. Don't suffer alone. Reach out! I hope to meet you at WPF.
