Become advocates for plant-based diets

During an Earth Day service, I will share information about how Native North Americans appreciated the land and left small footprints. By choosing a meat-free diet, one can greatly reduce their impact on the earth. I chose this goal, because I eat a plant-based diet and hold monthly meetings encouraging and supporting others.

    I watched the movie, Kiss the Soil, which taught me about regenerative agriculture.  When cleaning out our vegetable garden beds, we left the fallen leaves as they will provide a good covering for the new plants, as well as good mulch for the garden beds.

    Today I signed on to the Food Revolution Summit.  Listening to the professionals speak about whole-food plant-based diets and the benefits made me realize that there is a big difference between veganism and eating whole foods.  I'm going to try to eat more whole foods and less processed foods made with flour, salt, sugar, and/or oils.

    Yesterday I watched Dr. Klapper speak about plant-based diets in a TEDX talk.  He discussed the fact that eating whole-food plant-based diets is not only good for your health, but also good for the animals and the planet.  It re-energized me and made me proud to be called a vegan.

    I noticed that spring has definitely sprung!  The brilliance of all the colors of leaves and flowers is outstanding.  My citrus trees also emit the most delicious smells - can't wait to harvest the fruit next winter!

    Food, Agriculture, and Land Use Eat Mindfully
    Mindful eating is healthier for us than eating with distractions. How does your eating experience differ when practicing mindfulness?

    I am thankful that I'm eating food from a local farmer and that the food hasn't traveled thousands of miles.
