Friday, Erika made "vegan Portuguese jag". Aka some beans and kale and vegan chorizo goodness.
Today my mom texts me to tell me she made vegan sausage and peppers and got coconut milk ice cream and Newman O's to have for junk food during PMS this week.
So SO SOOOO proud!!!!!
I talk about my food choices because I truly believe in them, and truly believe if we knew better we would do better. However, I didn't necessarily expect the people closets to me to be making such crazy changes. I kind of thought my inner circle was stuck in their ways. I especially cannot even believe the strides my mom is taking. I guess I shouldn't be surprised because she has always really put in effort to do what she believed was best- I guess I just can't believe that she's agreeing that some of my ideas might be better. I'm so used to people thinking the way I eat is crazy or the way I eat is extreme. If the ONLY people my eating influences are my mom and me- that's worth it!
But I know that wont Be the case. One of my best friends, alycia, her husband chris, and I went to a vegan restaurant in providence once and we plan to go back soon. Kelly's whole family & Evan enjoyed a vegan Easter dinner. erika makes vegan lasagna I showed her for her family all the time. I don't even know how many of my customers order vegan Shakeology.
I think my faith in humanity is being restored- one meal at a time :)
