    Practicing gratitude keeps me centered and motivated because I am reminded of what I am able to do in my capacity.

    Michael Pollan states that "it is better to pay the grocer (our edit: or the farmer!) than the doctor." What are your thoughts on this?

    I have heard this before! It is better to pay the person who provides you food resources and nutrients, as opposed to the person who supposed to make you well again.

    Given the impact of pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers on both the natural world and our food systems, what do you think about the use of these products in agriculture?

    I think that the use of pesticides, herbicides and fertilizer usage is an example of wanting to get quick results or higher yields in agriculture.

    What do you think contributes to people in North America eating more meat than any other places, and what does this say about North American values and ways of living? How can we start shifting from a meat-focused food culture to a more plant-based one?

    I think people in North America eat more meat because of the availability and access. North American culture also promotes a heavy meat-based diet. In order to change it, we would need to promote a plant-based diet and make it more appealing.
