Hello everyone! We had another special time of learning, laughter and great food at our small group gathering. We had 12 people attend, and there was a nice assortment of great food to sample, while we settled in and visited with one another.
Then we decided to watch the documentary, Cowspiracy, and had a lively discussion afterwards. Learning about the impact our standard American diet has on our health, environment and world, is quite sobering and gives us all more incentive to closely examine our food choices.
I am very proud of how our group respects everyone's ideas and struggles, as we navigate through this lifestyle. Not everyone is at the same place, regarding plant-based, whole food eating, and many come to visit, to see what it's all about. That is where our group norms come into play. Everyone is to be respected and treated with kindness, no matter how they eat, or what they think. We are all on a journey and we are all at different places on that journey. It''s so exciting to see how so many have changed and grown, since we started this small group many years ago. It just keeps getting better and better!
