Sweet Potato-Pea-Quinoa-Bowl

Here is another recipe that Ginger devoured instantly! She is really loving her new vegan diet. She gets SO excited every time I prepare her food, which is a huge change from when I’d put kibble in her bowl. Here are some updates in changes we’ve noticed since Ginger’s switch to becoming vegan: her breath is much fresher and she has had significant improvement in digestion. (Before becoming vegan, she would vomit or have diarrhea at least once a week. Since becoming vegan she has not done either of those things!) Also, it is much easier for her to go #2, and she goes much more frequently. So far, the vegan diet seems to be working amazingly well for Ginger! We are thrilled with the results!
