Please share with us what motivated you to transition to a healthier, plant-based diet and lifestyle .

On my way to visit my Army buddy Michael, wife Carol, and their children I had ham and eggs as my last animal meal. I was raised that way. They hosted me for 8 days and fed me only organic from their garden. Conversation, nothing jumps into your cart

Do you have any favorite foods or dishes?

Okra is the most unusual, although I appreciate and eat nearly everything from the veggie kingdom on a regular basis. Eggplant, tomatoes, celery, potatoes, carrots, greens, sprouts, beans and rice are a frequent delight. Salads, organic greens. Yes!

Are you vegan? Vegetarian? Veg-curious?

As I wrote earlier, I've participated with all the different vegetarian style diets, no animals. As long as the food didn't have eyes, a brain or a mother I have tried it. The raw diet was the healthiest and most difficult in theAshtabula area.PEACE

If you are not vegan just yet, how is your transition going and how can we help?

The transition was easy for me because they were my role models and guides. I felt so much better during my 8 day stay with them that I chose to continue with this Great vegetarian diet. They are in my prayers of gratitude for them. Love animalsBwell


Hi All, I've been meatless since 1973. It has saved many animals that I love and it has been a healthier lifestyle for me. I believe that the simpler my diet the healthier I am. I strive toward vegan and in the past I've been raw for3 mo. PeaceNow!
