How to Spring-Clean Your Eating Habits
It’s a natural impulse to purge your closet this time of year. Who wants itchy, pilling sweaters when they could be wearing crisp tees and cute sundresses? I also get the urge to clean my windows so I can get a better view of the (sometimes) blue sky and flowers on my trees.

These raw vegan energy balls will give you a wonderful boost of energy and nutrients. Look for raw, organic ingredients, and have fun experimenting to your taste!
When Sarah Matheny, creator of the popular blog Peas and Thank You, decided to eliminate animal products from her diet, she knew there’d be skeptics. Her grandpa was a butcher and her mom cooked with no fear of butter. But now Sarah is a mom who wants to feed her children right. Her new book, also titled Peas and Thank You, is a collection of recipes and stories from a mainstream family eating a not-so-mainstream diet. It’s filled with healthy and delicious versions of your favorite foods, but with no meat, lots of fresh ingredients and plenty of nutrition for growing Peas. From wholesome breakfasts to mouth-watering desserts, it’s easier than ever to whip up crowd-pleasing meals that will have the whole family asking for “more, peas.” Here are Sarah’s thoughts on dinner, along with a few delicious recipes from the book.
