When I stumbled upon Amanda of Mama Eats Plants during one faithful Instagram bender, I knew immediately I wanted to share her with you guys. She’s both a normal mom and a zero waste goddess all at the same time and she somehow makes it look easy. Amanda is breaking down how to make zero waste sustainable, why plastic is a problem, and how to get kids involved with a lifestyle switch. Plus, you asked and I listened, all things vitamins and supplements, things like those from Quantum Health and similar services. I’m answering your Q’s on what supplements you actually need as a vegan. Supplements are brilliant for health and you can also reap other benefits such as glycine for sleep, please see below to hear my advice.
