  • It has been years since I have had to worry about what to feed a baby, but can’t you buy breast milk somewhere these days? If that’s not an option have you researched green smoothies for young children? Trust me, I’m just guessing here! My kids were…

  • Hi Raine! ( I know you’ve heard this a million times, I love your name!).I, like you and your husband am transitioning slowly, some days are good and some aren’t so good. I am a vegan all of the time though. I too smoke, I quit every so often, and d…

  • I live in northeast Indiana and I cannot eat raw locally once the farmer’s markets are finished for the season. I mainly try to buy organic at the supermarkets during the winter and early spring. This year I am going to try to freeze more local prod…
