Today we dive into the life of Jacqueline Alnes, an author and educator with a unique story to tell. We discuss her upcoming book, "The Fruit Cure," her diverse upbringing moving across the United States and Indonesia, and her transition from swimming to long-distance running. Jacqueline's journey includes her academic pursuits in creative writing, a challenging medical condition beginning in college, and her experiences as a Division One athlete navigating healthcare disparities. Our conversation explores her engagement with fruit-based diets, particularly the '30 bananas a day' regimen, examining its historical, cultural, and social contexts. We wrap up with insights into the evolution of the fruitarian lifestyle and Jacqueline's reflections on her recovery and current focus as a professor.
