Vegetarian, vegan, whole food plant based, keto, microbiom… there are a whole lot of food trend buzz words floating around right now. And even more conflicting “information”. It doesn’t help that the judgment from fundamentalists makes it disheartening for people to join any Facebook groups, just looking for guidance and inspiration.

I’ve been pondering changing my eating habits for a while, and for a myriad of reasons.

  1. Personal health: as I am approaching 40 and not finished having babies yet, my health and increasing energy, chances of conceiving, creating the most nourishing home for baby, are at the top of my list.
  2. Animal welfare
  3. Environmental impact

We put our little plant babies outside for more sun
(despite our efforts, the lettuce and basil didn’t survive)

Cats be damned. Gus Gus eats my spring onions and makes himself sick, and nibbles on my pea shoots. Stitch eats my garlic. And has destroyed my spider plant. Not to mention my toddler topples everything over. It is a trial and error situation with my little indoor herb garden. My thumb is brown but someday it will be green-ish.

UPDATE: the next basil I started got dumped by the toddler. 3rd time’s a charm?
