I hope everyone is hanging in there and feeling healthier and stronger as we start our fourth week of plant based eating. I hope you plan to keep to vegan living. It is healthier for you and your family; it’s better for the animals; it’s actually less expensive than buying meat & dairy; and perhaps the most important reason of all…it’s the single most important thing you can do to help save the planet. If you haven’t already done this, please go to our website and check out our Carbon Footprint Calculator and sign our Defund BigMeat petition.


We’ll be making 2 dinners this week with black-eyed peas. Both recipes are delicious but they are very different. I want everyone to see how versatile the black-eyed pea is! They are not just for New Year’s Day. There are different schools of thought on whether or not you need to soak black-eyed peas before cooking. I’ve done it both ways, so just know that if you don’t soak them the night before it might take a little longer to cook them, depending on how fresh the peas are that you purchase. During the height of the Covid pandemic, I bought a lot of beans that had to be cooked much longer than usual. I started cooking them in my crockpot first (on high for 6 hours with the spices) and then I would cook them in a pot on the stove after sauteeing any veggies that I wanted first. I guess we were really scraping the bottom of the barrel on beans at that time. I haven’t had this problem lately.


Good luck this week. I’m rooting for you!

I would love to hear from anyone who has tried this food plan.


Let me know if you enjoyed it and if the plan fits your needs or if you have any suggestions for improvement.


Thanks so much for checking out our Solidarity Food Plan.
