Whether you are just now starting to consider leaning into a Plant-Based (Vegan) diet, or you are already reaping the benefits, here is a chance to ask those enduring questions.

-Can I get enough protein without eating animal products?
-Is it actually possible to have tasty and nutritious plant-based food?
-Does broccoli really have protein?
-Why do people become vegan?

Questions like these, or anything else that has you curious, are welcomed and encouraged as we consider the benefits and joys of embracing a plant-based diet. Come prepared to ask your questions and be inspired to make a refreshing shift in your life.
