Some useful resources for plant-based nutrition

I’m compiling all of these resources into a single blog post as I’m often repeating them to others, so I hope they’ll be useful to readers of this blog. πŸ™‚

Some advice from me: ANY lifestyle and/or diet change requires research. Expect to make mistakes, just learn from them versus beating yourself up over them. Whether you’re just looking for more meatless meals, looking to transition post Ultimate Reset, or going full blown vegan or even raw vegan, know what you need to eat in order to be healthy and feel good. If you have allergies, you’re probably already used to reading labels and being cautious. Being vegan isn’t all that different, except for many of us we’re choosing to avoid these things versus having to out of necessity. For others, it may be a combination of both.

  1. Love this list and I have most of these already, so I completely agree with your choices! Also, you're so right about Earthlings. I don't think I had any idea what I was getting into when I put it in my DVD player. I had to turn it off a couple of times because I was a complete blubbery mess, but I turned it back on and got through it. Despite my difficulties with watching it, I still think it's worth watching. It's just something you have to be prepared for, that's for sure!
