10 Lessons from A Vegan Mama

23 Jan


"Mother Earth" by my then 4 year old

“There are two ways of spreading light:

to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.”

Edith Wharton

  1. Think for yourself. It is OK to think differently from the mainstream.
  2. Choose health by eating an abundance of fresh, nutritious and unprocessed fruits and vegetables.
  3. Be an efficient shopper. No need to roam around, we need only shop in the produce and bulk sections.
  4. Save money. Look: our Vegan grocery bill has decreased at least a third from our Omnivore days!
  5. Save time. Imagine! We don’t have to cook for hours. We can eat our fruits and vegetables raw. In fact, lunch will be ready in just 5 minutes!
  6. Let us not be wasteful. We don’t want to consume more than we have to. We can also compost our scraps, they will enrich the earth.
  7. Be part of our community: befriend local farmers, know where our produce comes from.
  8. Be respectful. We share this world and the resources in it with others.
  9. Be kind to ourselves, to others, to animals and to our earth.
  10. Be conscious always that our everyday simple choices can have great impacts on ourselves, on others and on our environment.
