Karma Counts ,

Amazing!

I absolutely love listening to Larissa and Vicki! They are I was so prepared to present a show in such a fun way… But is so expertly researched and professional. I love the conversational style. This world needs peaceful role models, and these ladies are it! Thank you and keep it coming!

Vegcurians truly ARE welcome here!

The morals, attitudes, and incredible inclusivity Vickie and Larissa have beautifully achieved are all things the world could use a lot more of. When you are brand new to these lifestyles, nothing feels worse than judgement and criticism from strict, militant members who treat you like the enemy. Here, I feel genuine pride and celebration of every meal or day that doesn’t include meat or dairy, without the need to do anything perfectly. Even more, I love hearing and seeing proof that disrespect is not tolerated here (or in the Peas and Carrots arena) in this space where people at ALL stages are welcome to ask, learn, and share. Please keep moving forward with everything you are doing and know how much it means to so many of us!

P.S. The occasional random “meows,” “barks,” and collar rattling noises are an adorable and welcome addition that always make me smile.
