The Importance of Being a Positive Example

As much as I would love for everyone to go vegan, I know that most people need to come into veganism on their own time. You can explain the horrors of factory farming, you can explain the environmental benefits, and you can explain the health benefits but I've found that the most effective way to attract people is by being a positive influence. Yes, I do think it’s important for people to be aware of all of these issues at some point in their quest to learn about veganism.

First Day of CSA Goodies

I have long wished to sign up for a CSA, but I didn't exactly think it would fit with our schedules and the fact that we plan our menus out so strictly since we cook for others. But... they are always so tempting. We are very lucky to live in Southern California and have an abundance of fresh, beautiful produce year round. A little pricy to sign up for one, but I know it's definitely worth it when I'm supporting local farmers. Plus, I love our weekly trips to the farmer's market.
