Out With the Old....
I loved the analogy my Sweet Inspiration, Kimberly Wilson, used last year for her autumn inspirational call. She likened the trees shedding their leaves to shedding non-essentials in your life. This could mean relationships, tasks, material possessions. We think of autumn as a time to prepare for the cold months ahead (at least we do in Chicago), and to this end I'm very excited about the September Vegan Kick-Start. It's a great time for those of us who might have either been lead astray around outdoor BBQs, summer cheese and wine parties, or that irresistible hot dog at a baseball game. No need to fret, just start anew!
The website gives nutritional tips, recipes, meal plans and loads of celebrity inspiration. And, they offer a great community forum for added support. I participated in the spring, and encouraged all my friends and family to join. I know of 4 people who were not even flirting with vegetarianism before, but now proudly call themselves vegan! It really is easier and more delicious than you might think.
And for those who are just looking for a little "detox" from the meat word, I encourage you to join me for the 21-day program.
For those who are already on board, please share this site with your network. This program is such a great resource.
