No Matter What We Do, We Can Always Make A Difference
This blog has been on the cards for quite a long time, but, life is what it is, and it dictated to me that this would must be completed with patience; I have simply not had the time to think about blogs far less write one – I have just been catching snippets of time here and there to write a few lines at a time!

My first steps into a plant-based diet in April 2018 were not your typical ones. It was a dark time; darker than many could imagine. Having separated from my wife only two days after my mother died in December 2017, my world had been ripped apart. I was unable to function as a normal human being.

Animal Lover – Animal Eater!?
As a kid I would visit country parks and zoo’s while eating chicken nuggets and cheese sandwiches while never making any sort of connection between the animals I was visiting and the dead ones I was eating. However, I always claimed to be an animal lover, not just Read More
