Busy Learning All About Healthy Foods

Ellie & Jay at Engine 2 RetreatJay and I are at an Engine 2 immersion retreat. They are keeping us extremely busy learning all about a healthy, Whole Foods, plant-based diet. I have been vegan for nineteen years for animals and have always taken my health for granted. But as I have been getting older, I would like to eat better. This week has changed our lives, open our eyes, and taught us so much! I cannot wait to share all that we’ve learned and tell you all about it when we get back next week.

Spotlight Sponsor of the Month

The original idea behind Fry’s was to find a way to make nutritious products for our family who are all passionate about plant-based diets. Back when we started in 1991 most people thought we were crazy. “Plants that look and taste like meat, made in your kitchen!?” Okay, maybe we were crazy, but with passion and determination, great things can happen.

We are thrilled to be sponsoring The Gentle 12 this November for World Vegan Month at the three Gentle Barn locations and look forward to all the visitors coming to meet the animals and sampling our delicious Fry’s treats. We adore the work that Ellie, Jay, and everyone at the California, Missouri and Tennessee sanctuaries are doing to save so many wonderful animals and provide them with a safe, loving home. By choosing our Fry’s plant-based products over animal protein, our customers end up saving over 3.5 million animals each year so The Gentle Barn’s dedication to the health and well-being of these loving farm animals fits perfectly with our own mission of saving the planet and all of its inhabitants.
