Well, my first "chim-in" after being gone two weeks, and what a great topic, Kelly!
The article was good and brought up something I'd never thought of: you can be vegan and not eat a single vegetable (with todays "fast food vegan" options!) How odd is that! But it's true. So sometimes when a person says they are vegan, it really doesn't mean that person is eating healthy.
I'm glad Kelly and Boni decided to make this group a "journey" and we are all on different paths on that journey. I'm still on the path "towards" becoming vegan, but not fully there yet. May not get there, but am on the path and hope to. That's why at first the article confused me. I mistook "plant based" for "plant strong". I'm "plant strong" at this point on my journey...meaning I don't always eat vegan, but do most of the time.
I go a lot by the Engine 2 Diet, which is plant strong. The author of it even admits himself that he's not perfect with it always. I guess I like that because some of us live in situations where we can't eat vegan "all" the time, but can most of the time. (And hope to eventually be eating vegan all the time.)
I'm glad how this group is helping us all to "focus" on how to eat the right way. Great article, Kelly!
