Caron De Mars ,

A plethora of plant power packed in ten minutes!

Marian Erikson is a wonderful researcher, scanning all of the best science-based plant-based blogs, the most credible M.D.s in this space, and the full range of vegan activists tackling everything from animal rights to human trafficking connected to fish harvesting. I’ve been a voracious vegan seeking all of the knowledge I can since I went plant-based in 2019. Marian always introduces new concepts to me. As an environmental and compassionate vegan, I lament having to buy cat food with animal parts. I’m thrilled to know that just like in humans, it’s the nutrition and not the animal parts (I’ve always known that pet food would be even worse than what they put in sausage). I now have vegan cat food on order. Thank you Marian!
