The problem is that so many of our world’s problems seem SO BIG that we can feel powerless to make a difference. After all, what can we do to save the rainforests? What can we do to reduce the crazy climate destabilization that is resulting in super storms, droughts, and floods?
How can we help reduce the scourge of cancer, diabetes, heart disease and Alzheimer’s Disease? How can we help our children avoid the childhood-robbing experience of obesity?
How can we help protect animals from unnecessary suffering?
How can we help reduce world hunger?
The great news is that we CAN actually help in every one of these situations, and it doesn’t cost us a penny to do so. In fact, when we help in all these situations, we are also helping ourselves to be healthy, trim, and energetic.
Eating a healthy plant-based (vegan) diet will not only help you be healthy and slim. It is also the most significant single action any of us can take to help the Earth, the animals, and other humans. And by our example, we help others know what is possible and make it easier for them to change, as well.
The truth is, you are a very powerful person. Every choice you make contributes to this world, whether you are aware of it or not. Choosing a plant-based diet has huge, far-reaching, powerful effects which can help you to feel really good about your impact. We all leave footprints. Let’s make them good ones!
I wrote this post in honor of Earth Day, which is Monday, April 22. The Earth is, literally, our mother. We came from her body and she has sustained our lives in every moment. Our powerful choices can make a huge difference in her ability to sustain us.

Or, you can see the entire 12 minute video called A Life Connected (click on the photo below), showing how our food choices affect people and animals as well. It’s a beautiful, inspiring, and empowering film. Please share it with your friends!
I’d love for you to share your thoughts with us after you watch the video.
Thanks for using your power to make this world better for all of us.
