My name is Katie; my husband Lonny and I went Vegan for our New Year's resolution last year. We read the Kind Diet with the intent of going just vegetation and after the first few chapters we are sure then being Vegan was the right thing for us. We have a 3 year old daughter, Addisyn and a Maltese, Toby; they are both Vegan and are thriving!
Before we were Wal-Mart regulars, eating cheep and unhealthy and filling our home and bodies with unnecessary toxin filled crap. We have totally changed the way we think and act and little by little we are having a positive effect on friends and family around us. We have seen huge changes in our bodies, my husband and I have both lost a ton of weight, and we can feel and hear our bodies so much more now.
We do our best to buy local and organic and we are now aware of all the toxins we were allowing in our home and in our bodies and we do everything we can to keep them out. We are educating our selves about food and the environment and we are teaching our daughter everyday how precious our world is and everything and everyone that is in it. We are not perfect, but we are doing our best to reduce the suffering, reduce the waste, and reduce the damage that is has done to us and our planet.
We started a blog for our friends and family so they can see what we are doing and what we are eating.
Thank you Alicia! Thank you for such an amazing gift! Your book has truly changed our lives for the better; we are happier and healthier and look forward to a life time of love, health, happiness and good vegan food!
New Year's resolution for 2011.....we are going to use reusable bags EVERYWHERE! We use them now when we grocery shop, but there are so many other places we can be using them too.
Congratulations on your huge success! It's almost been a whole year; something to be so proud of! You are doing so much good for yourselves, your children, animals, and the environment! As for your reusable bags, check out the resuable baggies at Reusit.com . . . there is another discussion about them somewhere, but it was something I never thought to get! Good luck and congrats again!
That's awesome...you guys rock! My resolution last year was to use my cloth bags everywhere too! So far, so good! If you can make the vegan lifestyle change (which you did), the bags will be SUPER EASY for you!
