Many of you know that most mornings my husband makes me smoothies. I was having a conversation today about making healthier choices. I know I am fully capable of doing just that on my own but the fact is I don’t have to and sometimes I need a reminder to be extra thankful I have a team in my corner. Hubby makes fresh smoothies and juices, my Mom cheerleading me over the phone and eating raw with me in solidarity (now 13 hrs away) and my other family and friends encouraging me when they see how healthy I am becoming since dedicating myself to a vegan diet. None of this progress comes easy but I suppose that is what makes it all the sweeter. I just needed to remind myself this Meatless Monday how grateful I am to have found this lifestyle and to have this level of support confirmed for me over and over again.
