"Eating less meat, easier said than done..."

This blog is for everyone who wishes to gradually introduce more plant-based protein in their diet. If your goal is to eventually adopt a semi-vegetarian, vegetarian or vegan lifestyle, you will find guidance here. This site is also suited for individuals who wish to benefit from a healing raw food diet (eating mostly or all unprocessed and uncooked foods), a gluten-free diet, or for those who whish to recalibrate their eating habits.
