What I’ve Learned From Going (mostly) Plant-Based

I made a decision about 4 months ago to give up meat/meat-by-products and it has been one of the best decisions I could have ever made for my body and mind. While it hasn’t been entirely effortless, it’s somehow easier than dealing with eating meat. I’ll explain that in a minute tho. I decided to do this because I have…

I Weighed Myself for a Month – Here’s What I Discovered

By now you know I’m not a person who believes in the scale, but it controls the minds of many of my clients.
