A Call to Potential Plant-based Bloggers

A Call to Potential Plant-based Bloggers

Each one of us who has embarked on a plant-based dietary program has a story to tell or some positive contribution to make in order to help bring others along on the journey that has been so helpful to ourselves! There are people who will listen to you that will not listen to me, or others. We all may have some shared experience or motivation, with which someone else might resonate. Your message could be exactly what is needed to help another person make the decision to adobt a plant-based lifestyle. We all have the ability to influence others! For this reason, we would do well to support, encourage and promote each other. It is for this purpose that we set up a blogging platform with the express intent of promoting plant-based living. Our thinking is that many people can benefit through creating a central gathering place where people come to blog, and read blogs, regarding a Plant-based diet.

Help! I'm married to a meat-eater!

Help!  I'm married to a meat-eater!
Actually, I'm grateful to be able to say, I personally am NOT married to a meat-eater.  My hubby willingly went vegan along with me, almost 30 years ago.  However, I have often been asked that question by both men & women.    Usually what has happened, is that the couple married when both were still eating the SAD, and then one of them finds the Vegan Advantage.  It has often come as quite a shock when the spouse refuses to embrace it too. Has this been part of your experience? If yes, how did you handle it?

Plant based motivations face-to-face

Hello everyone.  This is my first blog entry, so it is as much a test as anything.  :-)  The topic I have on my mind today is about dealing with people who (in theory) are on the same "team" (ie., committed to eating a plant-based diet) but who come to it from such a radically different perspective that makes respectful discussion difficult. Personally, I have a background in science so I have a fairly indepth understanding of both the value and limitations of research.  So when I find myself attempting to communicate with someone with very little formal education... but a lot of self-confidence... how do we find common ...

It is interesting to watch people who start plant-based because they are interested in the welfare of animals who then become very... Read More
