Hope everyone is doing SUPER! I posted this on my blog (www.KristensRaw.blogspot.com) and thought you all might like it :)
Here is a cool idea that Iâ€™m so excited to do this holiday season – Iâ€™m asking family and friends to go vegan for 5-7 days, as their gift to me. (Asking them to go Raw is probably too much of a stretch, so Iâ€™m starting with vegan. Next year Iâ€™ll hit them up with Raw! Remember, baby steps are important.) Itâ€™s a chance for them to feel great, learn about the health benefits, reduce their carbon footprint, see how simple it is, and hopefully start making better choices about their food in the future. This is a great gift for any occasion (birthday, anniversary, etc).
With the money they won’t be spending on me, I told them to buy a few staples to last the week (soy or hemp milk, fresh/frozen vegan foods, fresh Raw produce, etc). I’m providing them with a shopping list and I offered to go with them to show them how easy it is. I’ll also give them simple and delicious vegan recipes (as well as easy and great Raw recipes), a list of restaurants in their areas for great vegan food (Iâ€™ll use the Internet for areas that Iâ€™m not familiar with), as well as giving them ideas for breakfasts, lunches and dinners. The goal is to give them everything they could possibly need for making the week easy and fun. Iâ€™m also giving them a free vegetarian starter kit from â€œGoVegâ€ www.goveg.com that I pre-ordered early to arrive in time.
