Made a commitment to stay on my path with a whole-foods plant-based diet.  The blogs were eating me alive so to speak.  I don’t think anyone has a clue how much time is spent on that FB page to make memes, research, research videos.  It’s an all day project, then add Instagram, Pinterest, and Twitter.  Whew!  Is all I can say and Veggie Grill was my thing for too many days, lol.  Although my son is here from college, he has spent so much time with friends and is always eating out with them.  So yes onward and upward with my commitment to putting better food in my body.  How about you?  Are you eating just vegan junk food?  Think of colors and add color to your meals.  Buddha Bowls are the best way~!  Think a grain, protein and multiple veggies of color and you’ve got it covered!  Blessings, would love to hear from you~!  Much Love.
