Sometimes I struggle with how to talk about plant-based living. I don’t want anything I write to sound “preachy” but I’ve been studying the science of nutrition for the past seven years and I believe everyone deserves to have this information at their fingertips before they stumble upon it by chance (or out of necessity like we did). Even though we all eat plant foods, I know to most people it sounds risky or crazy or undesirable to eat only plants. And we think our choices are our choices. But I’ve come to see up close how important our plant foods are and how the food choices we make do impact others.💓
If we’re in a relationship, friendship, are a parent, child, business owner, colleague, restaurant owner, healthcare provider, educator, caregiver... any relationship we have, food is often a central part of how we socialize, interact, guide each other, and experience life together. If you haven’t studied the science behind plant based nutrition, 🙏 please take some time to. We can make it easier or more difficult for those around us and in our community to live a healthier lifestyle.🌱
I hope you’ll take a few minutes to read my most recent post on my blog The Vine, “Top 10 Reasons to Eat More Plants - # 5 Our Food Choices Aren’t So Personal.” I also include links to resources like the @bluezones who’ve studied areas in the world with the longest living people and who’ve discovered how important what we eat and our environments are to our health. And be sure to click on the link to @nutrition_facts_org video about how 15 of the top causes of death and disability in the US could be “prevented, arrested, or reversed” by diet. This isn’t all meant to limit our lives, but to expand them and to make it easier for our family, friends, and neighbors do the same. 🌱

The message of the vine speaks of how our continual connection with God is important to our spiritual manifestation on the earth. We will experience productivity as long as we maintain connectivity.
The presence of God is our spiritual habitat for survival and exploits! So Jesus said, "without me, ye can do nothing". From the original translation "without me" means 'severed from me'. Whatever severs our relationship with God frustrates our destiny in life! David said, "Where will I go from your presence?" and later he made us understand the import of abiding in the presence of the Vine. He said in Psalm 16:11 'In your presence there is the fullness of Joy and at your right-hand pleasures forevermore". Read full message in bio or copy this bit.ly/rojthevine to browser
When we are rooted in the fullness of the vine we are positioned for fruitfulness in life!
This past Sunday we had @inesmcbryde share a powerful message of the forgiveness of Christ and His love toward the woman in Luke 7. The emphasis for Dan was the action the woman in the story took to humbly bow down at the feet of Jesus knowing that she had sin in her heart but was forgiven by Christ.
Hey! It’s #trendytuesday ! One of our most fave new things is to have a live painter on site. How cool is this piece of art created during the ceremony for the couple to have? Check out @hannahleeart to see how you can incorporate this into your wedding day! #sayyestothevine 📷: @meekerpictures
"No matter who we are surrounded with , the most important thing is to always remain in Christ, Then everything else will bear more fruit"
5"I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing. 6 Anyone who does not remain in me is thrown away like a useless branch and withers. Such branches are gathered into a pile to be burned.
We have come so far together , we have had many ups and many Downs , mistakes , little fights , tears , laughter etc but God has always remained in us and has brought us this far. He has shaped us, challenged us, reassured us when we worry and grown in us .When we chose to remain in God despite the odds that come against us, he sustains everything else! #remaininhim#heworksitallout#thevine
Last week’s Young Adult First Saturday! They played Spoons and learned from a teaching in Matthew 18, 26 and Luke 18 about responding to what Jesus has done for us 😄.
Recap from the #SHEseries this month: “It was a great reminder that we need to speak what God is saying, to always be listening to His voice...and if we are not obedient we can miss something that He actually wanted to do and release in that moment. It's just a great reminder to speak what He's saying and be bold in that." - Jen
Nothing better on your wedding day than being surrounded by the women who lift you up on the regular! #sayyestothevine#squadgoals#weddingparty 📷: @ashlamonogue 👩🏼💻: @shelby_leanonme 🌷: @willowlaneflorals
What can I say about the amazing company @foodsofthevine. It is by far my favorite pasta sauce 🍝 yet I could not find it anywhere near me except for one store that marked the price up high. So I went one step ahead and contacted the company that makes the sauces. The owner was extremely generous and thoughtful, and sent me SIX jars of this amazing sauce plus extras for a discount!
The tomato sauces are 100% vegan, organic, and GMO free. No soy either, just the good stuff! The Vine has marinara and butternut squash flavors, and I can't wait to enjoy them. Along with the sauces, I recieved a free jar of salsa, and a free jar of ketchup. But just because this company is so amazing, they also sent me a free shopping bag too, ot go along with the hand written message on the order.
I absolutely love this company and highly reccomend it to everybody! Their products, which include pasta sauces, salsas, and ketchup, should be more regularly available in stores within a few months, so look out for them.
Another big thanks to Eve and everyone at The Vine for this package and the amazing products!! I blured out the recipient name in the message because it was not addressed to me personally but someone in my family.
For anyone that noticed, this post was uploaded but deleted due to a mistake I made in the description.
