THE OMD BEET   |   News you can't beet from One Meal a Day   |   Jan. 23, 2019
“All beings, including each one of us, enemy and friend alike, exist in patterns of mutuality, interconnectedness, co-responsibility and ultimately in unity”
— Roshi Joan Halifax
News from OMD
2018 was a difficult year for many of us. The onslaught of news can lead to paralysis, despair and wanting to just burrow into a cozy fortress. Yet it’s more important than ever to lean into “wise hope,” as Roshi Joan Halifax calls it, and engage in deeds and actions that are empowering and cultivate joy. From the food we share, the friends we invite to our table, and the neighbors and strangers we embrace locally and globally — gestures of kindness and compassion are powerful antidotes to complicated times.

In the spirit of wise hope and renewal, we’re celebrating 2019. It’s a new year, offering new possibilities, and new chances to take action — including an Applebee’s call-in day with the Center for Biological Diversity (it’s not too late to use your voice to ask for plant-based foods for all!).

We also kicked off the year by inviting our OMD community – and a few of our favorite bloggers — to a 10-day New Year Challenge. That means 10 days of eating plant-based for at least one meal a day, all to start the new year on a healthier note. Did you miss the Challenge? Don’t worry, you can start OMD any time, any place, and we’re here to do it with you. So let’s do this–one meal at a time.

Grass-fed Myths, Busted
