I made the change to whole food, plant-based eating nine months ago and while it's had its challenges, the rewards have been greater.

I have friends who are very organized and have their shopping done by October 1 (insert envious face). For the most part, making a list is as far as I get until mid-December. Going to shopping malls is something I'm doing less and less of. Are you doing the majority of your shopping online, too? Mall shopping just adds to my stress levels.
