A quick slideshow on vegan nutrition

I just realized I've let 3 weeks go by since my last letter --- I'm blaming it on the garden, and guessing that many of you are similarly distracted by the wonders of springtime and the joy of putting plants in the ground.

A potluck of plant-based projects

First a warm welcome to Hilary G. who lives here in Portland. I met Hilary in my yoga class and was delighted to learn that she also has a vegan website, called How to Escape Heart Disease.
