That’s HUGE! It’s an amazing and joyful life where just by aligning with your own morals you positively affect so many others!
Plant Foods Are Delicious!
What we eat can make a big difference! In our vegan life, we can still enjoy tasty and delicious foods. We just eat plants!
Vegan Your Way
There is no one way to eat a plant-based diet as part of a vegan lifestyle. Enjoy everything you have always liked just the vegan version. That could big, juicy plant-based burgers with a side of fries, or desserts, or salads. There are many store-bought convenience foods to choose from as well as literally millions of recipes that range from decadent vegan desserts to whole foods and everywhere in between.
Becoming Vegan is A Process
“It may not happen overnight. Stick with it and be kind to yourself … Veganism is not just a new diet, but a way of life! Living in harmony and peace amongst all living beings! Get creative, become inventive, buy some vegan cookbooks and learn new culinary skills! It’s such a fun thing to do! Spread the love, you’re on the way to no longer eating abuse, fear, and negativity!” ~ Gemma Palmer
