Does a plant-based diet increase creativity?
I've been a contributor to The Hectic Vegan Magazine ever since it's launch a year (or two?) ago. There is another issue due out early Spring and I realised I hadn't yet filled you in on the December release!
As per the previous issues, I had a number of recipes featured - these ones were mostly pumpkin focussed ;-) There was also a special 50% discount on my Not Just For Goldilocks porridge recipe book!
You can download your digital copy of the magazine (and previous issues) for FREE here!
But... I am also excited to share another feature that I am so passionate about, that is exploring the link between creativity and a plant-based diet.
It's an absolutely fascinating topic that I am currently delving into more deeply (with a book in mind), a connection that I have experienced deeply in my own life. This blog was also triggered by a post that caught my eye on the Veganuary Instagram page...
I have often talked about my philosophy that a plant-based diet goes way beyond the food itself. Once we begin to question one aspect of our lives, our minds open up to explore so much more in terms of how we relate to the world around us.
@@>>>Once we think outside the box, once we shift our perspective, life literally becomes limitless!@@
Here is that article, you can click to zoom in (or download the magazine to read it properly!), I love how the designers have illustrated the quotes I gathered from some Facebook research in little speech bubbles (I am a sucker for quirky details!) ;-)
I also see a huge link between the concepts of 'creativity' and 'spirituality' in terms of our connection with our innate sense of self and the bigger picture beyond.. maybe that's a topic for another post, ha ha)
Feel free to chime in with your experiences too - have you noticed an increase in your creativity or spirituality since going plant-based?
I am very keen to hear from those that feel strongly about the subject... and you may well feature in my new book, planning is currently underway and I am aiming to publish it before the summer! Please drop me a note if you'd like to share your thoughts and would be open to having a chat!
