Going Vegan

Going vegan/plant based is probably one of the most important, beautiful & beneficial decisions you will ever make. For your own physical health as well as that of the planet. 

These resources will inspire you while transitioning to a whole food plant based lifestyle. A WFPB diet will prevent, reverse & heal many common chronic diseases, including obesity.  “Fall in love with food again”. – Hallelujah Acres

Knowledge is power. It’s important to educate yourself on both the healing power and benefits of a plant based diet as well as the cruelty involved with the raising of animals for meat & dairy. This is what will keep you motivated when temptation arises.
