Today I made a choice to eat a plant-strong diet, which means no more dairy, eggs, or meat, and a lot less oil.
Eating a plant-strong diet not only means better health for my body, it also means less impact on the Earth. I’m no longer contributing to the entire commercialized livestock industry with large inhumane factory farms that use harmful hormones and antibiotics humans should not be consuming. Instead I’m getting my nutrients from plants, which is just one step closer to the original energy source–the sun!
I’m very excited! There are so many great blogs I’ve found and recipes I’m eager to try. I’ve always loved fruits and veggies and grains, so I don’t think the transition will be too taxing. The biggest adjustment will be in regards to baking. I’m so used to using butter and eggs! But I know that with the power of the internet, anything is possible.
I’m looking forward to sharing recipes and ideas with you, my awesome readers, right here on Knitting Naturals! Although we only sell organic and ecofriendly knit and crochet items in the shop, I believe that “Going Green” can be incorporated into all aspects of your life (even your food).
