Nothing better than a Successful Food Company stepping up to
spread awareness about Factory Farming.

This commercial made my day and stole my heart
for Valentines day.

Watch this commercial by Chipotle.

Please share this video!
All change starts with knowledge.
I've heard it said that, We can't change what we don't acknowledge.

So true in every aspect of life.

Chipotle continues to show us how it CAN be done better. A company

can still make a profit while making animal welfare a focus. They are not
100 % with animal welfare, but they are making a significant difference.

Thank you Chipotle. xo

Happy New Year!

A New Year is always a great time to try new things.
I love that idea! I am a big fan of trying new things.

How about trying New recipes that incorporate a way of eating that is unfamiliar to you?
Or recipes that introduce your palate to flavors,
seasonings, or food combinations that you have never experienced? Sound interesting?

I discovered a great article in the New York Times with fantastic recipes by Mark Bittman. He uses the term semi-veganism to describe his outlook on eating a plant based diet.
Great idea because most people feel like the becoming a vegan is
akin to a prison sentence for their taste buds. I understand. I used to feel that way too.
I am so pleased that he is promoting the benefits of a plant based diet in a manner
that is actually achievable for most of us.
Why not make one dinner meal a week a plant based meal?
It's easy, healthy, inexpensive.

NY TIMES magazine

Read the above article and see if you aren't inspired to
try at least one of his tasty recipes.
I am starting with the Pasta, Beans,

and Tomatoes!
I am a sucker for anything Italian..It's in my genes.

Happy New Year!
