    This challenge has been an awesome opportunity to reflect and make changes in my life!

    My family has decided that we are going to stick with a mostly vegetarian diet, we have felt much better since beginning this challenge.

    I watched "Sustainable" on Netflix last night, was a very good production of how we can influence the ability to sustain ourselves without the need for much commercialization.
