Vegan Food is Everywhere When people ask how author and certified vegan lifestyle coach Camille DeAngelis feels satisfied on a vegan diet, she thinks of the moment in James and the Giant Peach when the Grasshopper and the Centipede fret that they have nothing to eat until James points out that they’re traveling inside an enormous piece of fruit. There is plenty, Camille reminds us in A Bright Clean Mind, a self-help motivational book for artists and creatives. Everything we could ever want to eat, and more, is all around us.
Imagine a Better Life: Because we live in a culture in which the eating and wearing of animals is taken for granted, we rarely recognize our limiting meat-centric mindset. But if we can employ our imagination to create worlds from scratch, we can surely use our imaginative power to envision a new way of seeing ourselves in relation to the animals we eat. On the other side of this brain transformation is a lifestyle that is ideal for our own health and emotional well-being and is much more environmentally sustainable.
Improve Your Work Flow: Camille believes that creative hobbies and habits reinvigorate one’s primary work. But she knits, sews, embroiders, and bakes for the pleasure of it, too. Her productivity and brain power have been remarkable since going vegan seven years ago, and even more importantly, she no longer feels any of the frustration or uncertainty artists tend to accept as part of the creative process.
A Bright Clean Mind is perfect for every creative suffering from brain fog. In this book, you will discover:
