What I Ate Today & Desert Guided Meditation

Some of you often wonder what a plant based person eats in a day, some of you already eat plant based and wonder like I do, what other plant based people eat.

Then it’s always measurable. Most of the time you can use a 1:4 ratio depending on your preference. Lately I’ve been using a 1:5 ratio (i.e. 1 cup nuts and 5 cups filtered water).
