  1. Thanks for all these great resources! I particularly liked the 50 Vegetarian Thanksgiving Recipes. So many delicious looking recipes to chose from! :)

    I came across this article (http://foodbabe.com/2013/11/10/juice-labels/#more-15367) recently and was shocked. I thought that if you stuck with 100% juice, then you were avoiding all those additional additives. Also, I was surprised by the way many major companies process juice. Good eye opener.

    1. Glad you enjoyed the links, and veggie recipes!

      And yes, that article is really informative about labels that are totally confusing. Labeling seems to be a major roadblock in the path toward transparency in our food system!
