Get the MEAT OUT!

National MeatOut is coming! This year, it's on Tuesday, March 20th.  In honor of MeatOut, I will be doing one or more special posts, and I'm really excited.  I LOVE MeatOut and you will, too. Don't forget to sign up for their e-newsletter, get a free veg kit, etc.

In my MeatOut post last year, I focused on general advice and encouragement in overcoming barriers for new vegans and folks wishing to explore a plant-based diet, and, I treated myself to a special vegan shopping trip at Trader Joe's in honor of MeatOut.  This year, I really treated myself to something VERY special...but, you'll have to wait until Tuesday to find out!

Here are some tips on how YOU can prepare for MeatOut if you are new to a plant-based diet and plant nutrition.

This year, we are struggling with a serious health issue in our family--one of our loved ones is facing a very serious cancer.  The power of plant nutrition is profound and I wanted to provide you guys with some great resources for quickly and easily learning about plant-nutrition as a tool in both preventing and helping to cure disease. That post is to come as well.

Get ready, MeatOut is coming!  Make a weekend of it, go grocery shopping, try some new recipes (start here if you like:-), stop by the library to pick up some vegan or vegetarian cookbooks, and by Tuesday you will be an old pro.  

Here are some of my favorite dishes from this year:

Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake! (Post to come) 

Homemade (vegan) Pepperoni, fresh tomatoes, Cashew Ricotta and Roasted Eggplant Pizza (100% vegan, of course :-) 

Have a healthful, blessed weekend.
