Why veggieness? What IS veggieness? Well obviously, it’s a made up word. But let’s go deeper… the origin word of veggieness is, — you guessed it!– vegetable! And the suffix “ness” represents being in a state of the word which it proceeds. Am I telling you that veggieness literally means being in a state of… vegetables? Kind of! Webster defines a vegetable as “consisting of plants”. So, am I saying that I want to encourage you to be in a state where you consist of plants? HECK YEAH!
Plants are extremely powerful, and that’s what this blog is about. If the phrase “you are what you eat” is to be taken literally, then as a vegan, I literally consist of plants! How cool 🙂 But since I’ve taken it upon myself to continuously research the power of plants, it’s not just my diet that consists of vegetables. I rely on plant power in my hair and skin care, in my cleaning products, in my home to keep the air clean, and in my chosen forms of medicine. Unfortunately in today’s world, many ingredients in the products that we use in our daily lives can be harmful to our bodies and environment. But fortunately, we are not hopeless and there are many healthier alternatives for us to use.
My hope is to be a resource for you when you are discovering all the ways that you can take advantage of the vegetation which God has provided for us. So on this blog, while you will see recipes and advice about your diet, you will also see holistic approaches to harnessing plant power and hopefully you’ll put some to use and spread the word to others!
Thank you for following me on my vegginess journey, and for following my blog to keep learning why veggieness is right for you.
Wishing You Much Love and Veggieness,
