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.

"Because Animals is a small company with a big mission: to create nutritious pet food without ever harming any animals or the environment. We believe that factory farming has no place in pet nutrition, which is why all of Because Animals' products are made without slaughtering animals. "

"Our ultimate goal is to end the raising and slaughtering of farmed animals to feed our pets.
Until we get to that point, we are so very grateful there are sanctuaries like The Gentle Barn’s three locations to give refuge to abused, tormented, neglected and suffering animals who deserve so much more from the world."

~Dr. Shannon Falconer, CEO, Because Animals
