Physician Profile: Teaming Up for Better Health
Carl Myers, M.D., and Jean Myers, B.S.N., M.S., are on a mission to help their community achieve better health, and people in their town can’t seem to get enough of their good advice—or of their new vegan restaurant’s signature sandwiches.
As an oncologist practicing in Yuma, Ariz., Dr. Carl Myers always stresses that diet and other lifestyle factors play a major role in patients’ overall health.
“Unhealthy diets not only promote deadly diseases, but also affect our energy levels, how we look, and how we feel,” says Dr. Myers. “Some of my patients have switched to a plant-based diet, and I can see the difference in their skin and how happy they are, and they all lose weight.”
Jean Myers teaches The Cancer Project’s Food for Life Nutrition and Cooking Class Series. The Food for Life series is popular in Yuma—every class has a long waiting list. Mrs. Myers wanted all community members to have a chance to attend regardless of income, so she asked the Yuma Regional Medical Center Foundation to sponsor the six-week courses. With generous support from the hospital, she has taught at least six series every year for the last four years.

Nature’s Express Opens
Who: VegWebmistress Laura Beck, VN Publisher Joseph Connelly, and VN Associate Publisher Colleen Holland
What: Grand Opening of Nature’s Express
Where: Nature’s Express, Berkeley, Calif.
When: January 16, 2010
Why: The grand opening of an all-vegan fast-food restaurant? Color me THERE.
The Scoop: We all know that you gain so much from becoming vegan, and the things you miss from your meat-mouth days are seriously negligible, but I’ll tell you one thing: Fast food was THE BOMB. I know lots of vegans who turn their noses up at the golden arches, but I can’t lie. One of the greatest joys from my childhood was pulling up to the drive-thru window at Jack in the Taco King, Jr. and eagerly awaiting my meal. The pure bliss I experienced before biting into some gnarly piece of fake food is hard to compare. I guess if you imagine riding a unicorn over a rainbow made of candy, you start to get close.

Nature’s Express brings veganism to the final frontier: fast food.
By Anneli Rufus
What do we want from fast food? That it be fast, of course. What else? That it be cheap? Convenient? Filling? Portable?
You’ll find some, if not all, of these qualities at Nature’s Express, which opened this month in a convenient location next to Peet’s on Solano Avenue. But in exchange for what’s occasionally missing, you get other factors, mainly this: It’s vegan. From sturdy black-bean-and-”cheese” burritos to velvety peanut-butter “milk” shakes to slender, tender, air-baked golden “fries” to ten different varieties of “burger,” everything served in this spic-and-span, snow-white slot — whose seating comprises tall, square stools along a counter — is not only meatless, but also milkless, eggless, honeyless, and preservative-free.
For a menu whose sixty-something choices span breakfast, lunch, dinner, drinks, agave-sweetened desserts, and snacks — and even includes a special section for kids — that’s saying a lot.
CAFÉ VEG NEWS January 28 2010
The Menu: A huge sampling of the vegan fast-food chain’s tastiest offerings! Joel Daniel, kitchen manager at Nature’s Express’ new Berkeley location, brought us a bevy of tasty menu items. A fantastic coconut-yam soup started the meal, and Grilled Tempeh Reubens and Eggless Egg Salad Sandwiches were shared as the main course. A variety of fresh, flavorful salads followed, including Quinoa, Black Bean and Couscous, Potato, Nature’s Signature, and raw kale and collard greens. No meal at the VNHQ would be complete without dessert, a quota happily filled by both Chocolate Mousse and Key Lime Pudding.
