A Compassionate, Kiss-Worthy New Year

Italy, here we come! (Photo courtesy of JWP)
I'm, writing to you today from my Dad's home in snowy South Jersey, and I couldn't be more pumped - simply because I am about to embark on a ten-day vegan adventure in Italy with the husband. After hours of planning and discovering how many yummy vegan-friendly places there were in Italy (Soy gelato in Rome? Who knew?), I am primed and ready for this much-anticipated honeymoon. Of course, I will be taking way more photos than my digital camera can handle, and you can guarantee I'll be blogging about a few of my Italian experiences on here.

In the meantime, I would love to wish each and every one of you a Happy New Year! This year flew by for me - was it the same for you? I have a lot of goals and dreams for the coming year, and I'm sure you do too, but one goal is something we can all do together. Whether you've been vegan for most of your life, are just dipping your toes into the veg lifestyle, or are a curious meat-eater, the 21-Day Vegan Kickstart Program is a perfect way to dedicate yourself to three weeks of healthy and delicious vegan living. Created by Neal Barnard, founder of PCRM (The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine), the Vegan Kickstart program will assist you with daily meal plans, community forums, nutritional resources, and videos. Best part? It's free!

I would love to see as many KMIV readers as possible pledge to spend their next 21 days with the folks over at PCRM, so:

If you're interested in pledging, go to
http://www.pcrm.org/kickstart/ and register today to begin on the first of January. But make sure to share with us here that you registered, and if you love the program, feel free to shoot me an email at kissmyvegan@gmail.com to share your experience with us!

I'll be back the second week of January, so until then - relax as much as you can, hug and smooch your loved ones, enjoy a yummy vegan meal, and remember to be as present as possible. And don't forget to find reasons to smile!
