Have you ever considered cutting back on animal protein? In this segment of the Daytime show I discuss the “flexitarian” approach of going a day or two a week without any meat or animal products, what is called a “vegan” lifestyle. I also make some very tasty and easy recipes – you can find thes recipes for the vanilla almond milk and “TLT” sandwhich at this link. If you want a longer version of how to make nut milk, check out the Video Lessons tab at the top.

You can also learn more about the enormous environmental benefits of the “Meatless Monday” initiative 0n their website.
