Food portions is a very important topic when it comes to calories and wellness. Our food portions have reduced significantly since becoming Vegans. We have really noticed the change of portions to the whole food plant based lifestyle that came naturally and without force. The better we eat the less we eat it was just a natural turnaround. Our plates have become smaller and we use bowls more. We just love the smaller portions the less washing up and the amazing energy we get from our good food.

Thoughtful Gift from Boss to Teen Employee (my daughter) – Vegan

IMG_2847

My daughter works in a retail store and look what her manager gave her for Christmas. She was thrilled with the consideration of the items as she is at 16 a Vegan and very disciplined. What an amazing thought gift to a teenager from her boss. I had to share. She felt her manager listens and learns about her. The gift was thought out and respectful. Anyone can give anything however this was a well thought out gift that really empowered my daughter to know that she is valued at her work. She is the youngest on the team so this was awesome and she contributed to our cupboards right away. Really nice eh!
