Why I’m no Longer Dating a Meat-Eater

Dating a Meat Eater

A couple of months ago I began dating a meat-eater… I have told myself for the best part of a year, that I would only date someone who was plant-based.

The Power of 3

Growing up I always heard conversations surrounding the definition of a proper meal, meat and two vegetables.
