When One Green Planet contacted me about contributing a monthly column to their site, I was thrilled to be invited to take part. They have so many great contributors, including presidents, CEOs, and founders of compassionate and eco-friendly organizations, well-known authors, vegan fashion designers, bloggers, activists, and experts in all fields eco-friendly. There’s such a plethora of information! I’m excited to announce my first article, Healthy and Budget-Friendly Snacks for Kids , is up on One Green Planet , so stop by and check it out!
Among the common myths of veganism are the beliefs that the vegan diet is unaffordable to the masses and vegan foods are inherently healthy. But with more people than ever embracing the vegan lifestyle, and companies catching on, it’s just as easy to find sugary, processed, packaged vegan treats. When it comes to perfect snack-time foods for our little ones, it’s important to think outside the box. Healthy snacks with minimal to no processing, no refined sugar, and no artificial colors and flavorings are not only best for our growing children, but also more wallet-friendly.
