living plant-based and loving it
This website is for anyone who wants to enjoy good health for as long as they can. Information about food and nutrition can be confusing. My mission is to collect, organize, and make available the most reliable facts and most informed opinions I can find. I have decided to stop eating animal foods, so that is the central focus of the information shared here, but you don’t have to make any food-related commitment. Courtesy and curiosity are the only core values of this group. I’m not an expert on anything food-related, but I’ll do my best to help you find one.
