. . . So I’ll try not to use too many big words.
One of my first ever favorite big words was ‘vegetarian’. I’m a vegetarian. I don’t eat meat because I like animals and I don’t want to eat them, if you see what I mean.
My Mum and Dad used to eat a lot of meat, especially beef and pork. So from time to time I would try to offer them a little friendly information . . .
Mum was very happy that she could do something to help herself. She decided to give it a try.
She gave up meat, sugary food and drinks, processed food and dairy products like cheese, milk and cream.
And she started cooking whole foods including lots of fresh, organic, green vegetables.
But Mum doesn’t give up easily and she asked Brenda, who knew a lot about the macrobiotic diet, to come over and help her.
