Like so many others, Carleigh had grown up on a standard meat and potatoes diet, with steak and pork-chops on weekly rotation in her family kitchen. The news was particularly shocking as her father was a stage 2 colon cancer survivor. Armed with a bachelor’s degree in media theory and journalism, Carleigh began to do her own research, reading landmark and life changing books including The China Study, finally enrolling in a one year holistic health coach course to become more versed in nutrition. The decision to go plant-based was an easy one. Carleigh began cooking vegan meals by simply replacing the meat in her favorite childhood recipes with plants. And that’s how Plant You was born. In 2019, she launched her own whole-food, plant-based digital meal plan program, Plant Ahead, which was an instant success, allowing her to leave her corporate job five months later. Carleigh is a graduate of the CNS and eCornell Plant-Based Nutrition Certificate program. You can follow her on Instagram @plantyou and on Facebook.
