Have you heard about the revamp that could be coming to Canada's Food Guide next year? Check out the article we have linked from The Globe and Mail for more details, but below are some of what we consider to be the most important points:
These changes could be a huge leap forward in helping the many people who turn to Canada's Food Guide as a guideline for their diets realize that meat and dairy products aren't crucial when it comes to eating healthy.
We're especially excited about the fact that it includes animal welfare and environmental sustainability as important considerations when it comes to our decisions about what we eat.
Please take the time to give this article a read, and also go to the Health Canada website to provide your feedback on the proposed changes. They are accepting consultation from the public until July 25th.

Always remember, we have the power to bring change simply through the decisions we make to live a more compassionate and ethical lifestyle.
