"I am so excited about finding your meal plan.  I have been trying to eat plant-strong for a couple of months now, but figuring out what to eat has been my problem.  Thank you so much for your help." - Dolores T.

"Since starting your "Eat like me" calorie menu I have learned how to make food i never thought I would be eating. I have lost a little over 15 lbs since Nov 30th. I am a full-time nursing student and having a menu like yours that I can prepare ahead of time and be able to take to school with me will help me to do well." - Sarah

"I feel great. Less sleepy, clear mind, and more creative" - Karin

Thank you for putting together an easy, do-able, meal plan.  I was able to finish - FINISH - a bowl of oatmeal. The one this morning and yesterday are the only two bowls of oatmeal I have ever finished in my entire life (50 yrs)." - Lisa

Congratulations to our winner Cassie W.!! She wrote "My favorite thing about chocolate is the rich taste that makes my taste buds scream for more!!!!"


With the holidays right around the corner, who couldn't use a little chocolate? Whether it's for yourself or a gift for someone else, a little chocolate goes a long way.

sweetriot not only sells fair trade certified, organic chocolate they are so vegan, gluten-free and kosher. And they get even better by being only 20-22 calories per square. 

They are even giving all you herbies a 15% off discount until December 31, just use the code 'happyherbivoreriot' at checkout. 

They also support upcoming artists by giving them a chance to design the bar and tin packaging, changing artists every few months.

sweetriot is the only chocolate company to offset not only its office carbon emissions but also it's employee travel. You can even offset the carbon emission of the delivery of your purchase by adding 'riot carbonfree' to your shopping cart.

Leave a comment below about your love for chocolate for a chance to win the gift set below. 

Yes, that's 6 whole bars of chocolate. The winner will be announced tomorrow.
