In 2013, I am cutting my sugar intake. We have read Rip's book and love many of his recipes. I'd love to try this cereal!

Started working out at Kosama 5 days a week. Loved Forks Over Knives DVD/book (saw/read this about 5 months ago); just received the Engine 2 DVD. focusing on plant based diet. Off of milk for 3-4 years; haven't had soda for about 2-3 years...it's a process that's for sure...but am riding the wave!

Carrying around my little harp spreading healing musical vibes is ALL I have ever wanted to do. My health is stopping me. At 350 lbs it is hard to walk around so I have begun to make small changes. I have cut out dairy completely, stopped the diet soda habit and am putting more fruits and vegetables in every meal and stopping ALL meat. I need to find recipies because so far I feel bored but I know my body and ALL the people I want to play for will THANK me. I thank you for providing me with the tools.

I am going to continue adding new plant foods to my meals. 2012 started off with the Standard American Diet, and since around May, my husband and I have changed to nearly 100% plant-based eating at home. We are trying to make slow, lasting changes, so our dining out is closer to 80% plant-based choices. This has been a huge change and I've dropped about 15 pounds.

I am caring for myself ! I am doing this by adding lots of greens into my meals, educating myself on plant and whole grains and nutrition; walking more and creating and building a network of like minded people to support the life I want. Oh yeah, and giving myself a break from being too hard on myself!

Just bought Rip's book and my whole family and I started a plant-based diet! Kids are slow to accept the changes but I feel better already. I love his recipes. I have already been sharing the medical research with my parents. Excited for 2013 and to start feeling better!!

I'm 99% plant strong and my health has vastly improved. Now, it's time to be that obnoxious, dogmatic 100% plant strong human that lurks within ...

I love Rip's Big Bowl cereal! My husband and I took the 28 day challenge for 14 days last February. I was astonished that I did so well without meat, meaning I didn't really miss it, but I did find it difficult to prepare it for the rest of the family without just tasting every now and then. I definitely LOVED the lack of grease in my sink for two whole weeks! This year, I want to get back on track for being more plant-strong and possibly not offering the family meats.....if they are hungry, they will eat what is put before them, right?

Some of the changes that I am making this year is to eat a plant-based diet- cutting out refined sugars and processed foods. I also want to cook and prepare more plant strong meals for my family especially for my 11 month old son!

My changes are to embrace the plant strong lifestyle-No Meat, No Dairy, No Oil, No processed food and limited refined sugars. In learning about Engine 2 in 2012 and going to a Forks over Knives event in the Chicago area, I am grateful to have the information to begin this new way of eating. I've joined a vegan social group, and am planning on trying a new recipe or food at least 3X per week..

Going Plant Strong after researching and "trying it out" off and on for 2 years. Making big leap to 100% PB in 2013! Excited about the E2 line...ready to go shopping!!! Hoping to get my hubs to move toward PB as cooking two different meals has been a 2 yr challenge!

I am going plant strong! I have finally convinced my husband to do it with me who in his words is a slave to food. We are making recipes from the Engine 2 cookbook and our kids are even loving it! We are feeling great so far!

I'm going to check the ingredients lists of store-bought foods to make sure they comply with the E-2 plant-strong recommendations.

Even though I'm a vegetarian of 20 years and a vegan of the past 5, I plan to become a healthy plant-strong vegan this year! I'd love to try Rip's Big Bowl! Thanks!
