In 2012, I'm turning over a new leaf--lots of them really.
I've decided, for the month of January, to eat an entirely plant-based diet. Whoa. Yeah. Its going to be awesome!
But I don't love the word "vegan". I like "plant based", "raw", and "plant power", so those are the words I'll use.
I've been consuming a lot of plant-based food propaganda recently that has influenced my decision to make this goal. Most influential have been the documentaries "Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead", "Forks Over Knives", "Food Matters", and "Food, Inc". As I progress toward my goal of eating only plant-based food for 30 days, I will chronicle my experiences and progress here on my blog. There are a lot of concepts, facts, and research that has contributed to convincing me to try this out, and I plan to summarize my findings for you here.
I couldn't do this without the support of my amazing husband (who will NOT be eating tofu), who gave me this ridiculously awesome juicer from Breville as a Christmas present. Here's what I woke up to on Christmas morning--way to go Kyle!:
I am really excited to plunge into this new lifestyle and look forward to sharing my experiences with you!
