    Not sure if you all have seen this, prayers asked for the little ones that didn't survive.

    I've been overwhelmed at the amount of goodness shown from thousands of people over the one act of evil.

    Hope the boy involved gets the help he needs.

    God bless the animals x

    Thank you 4Elise! I also agree that my faith played a big part in my having to make changes. When the Spirit opens your eyes, your mind, and your heart it is hard not to listen. As in matters of faith, it is our example, love, and compassion ithat will draw people to question and listen. It is for those people that I wish to spend my energy and help them on the way! Blessings to you!

    Your mention of white beans sparked my memory of a fun dessert recipe that helped me transition into less processed, vegan foods.

    This can be made with almond or coconut milk and coconut sugar or agave to keep it vegan and low-glycemic.

    Yummy!

    Have you heard of Vapour Beauty? http://www.vapourbeauty.com/

    I don't have sensitive skin, but their products are lovely, and they offer sample sizes at a discount so you can try before you commit to a full-sized product.

    The proof I can think of is that vegetable eaters have way fewer addictions and maybe more important their children don't get addicted.

    Care to comment
    I don't know of any studies that have or are looking at this connection -
    Making conscious choice about food 'should' translate to other ways that people care for themselves - but in my experience addiction is a much more complicated thing - sometimes seeming to have a genetic predisposition

I went under the non-denominational umbrella for the last twenty years. However, God has been showing me some things that are now leading me to believe that the Catholic Church pretty much has it right (although I'm not sure if any one church has it 100% right) and now I'm seriously considering converting to Catholicism. I have had some experiences and seen certain things that I'm not so sure Protestant Churches will understand. My experiences have led me to do a lot of research afterwards - particularly in the area of purgatory and I've read a lot of what Padre Pio wrote about and what others wrote about him. I was lead to write a book about my experiences and it will be available Free of charge of Sunday, June 8, 2014 and Monday, June 9th. I'd like to know your thoughts, so if you can, feel free to write a review. The link is: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00IT2GIOS. Thank you and may God bless all of you and may He continue to guide us in this journey of life.

Anytime you combine legumes (peas or beans) with whole grains (rice, wheat, quinoa, etc.), you have a complete protein. I also eat a lot of nuts. It may be necessary to take iron and/or B12 supplements, as veggies don't contain these nutrients. However, if you can find farm fresh eggs with bright orange yolks, that may be enough. Don't think in terms of daily intake, but rather of weekly intake, ie., am I getting enough nutrients every week? Your annual check up will show if you have any deficiencies. Secondly, the one time I went to a naturopath, she told me to eat meat, took me off my thyroid prescription, and my hair started falling out. A friend of mine who was nearly vegetarian, had a naturopath tell her to eat fish. I now take my levothyroxin and have given up on naturopaths. (The hair I lost never did grow back. I also suffered extreme exhaustion while I was off the meds.) Lastly, my husband was a carnivore. I didn't cook two separate meals. I made a veggie dish, grain or pasta, and a meat dish. He ate everything; I just left out the meat. Hope this helps.
    Excellent points... We are protein obsessed! I love nutritional yeast... Add it to lots, sprinkle on cooked veggies, sliced tomatoes, popcorn... Great nutritional supplement for vegans!

    BAD HAMBURGER

    The current, August 31, edition of Time Magazine has a plastic covered packet of ground beef on the cover, which has warning label on it: "This hamburger may be hazardous to your health. Why the American food system is bad for our bodies , our economy and our environment -- and what some visionaries are trying to do about it." The headline is "The Real Cost of Cheap Food."

    try it again - or just google peanut butter mixer - it is like a lid for the peanut butter but has a churn type top that lets you stir it - I think regular peanut butter has 'emulsifiers' - don't have any idea what that would be? Perhaps some kind of other veggie oil?

    I LOVE roll ups - think they make great lunches - but don't discount that lunchbox link all together, just go through there are easy things there as well as the more complicated stuff too... lots of 'dip' stuff - i.e. hummus, which obviously could be purchased at Trader Joes (mmmmmm white bean hummus) ---- off to work!
