When I started KarmaFree Cooking, my mission was always to communicate the benefits of the vegetarian diet to anyone who was willing to listen. Knowing full well that my Latin peers were not very open to the idea, I’ve always known it’s important to teach by example rather than by preaching.
Kids nowadays come with a different set of hardwiring… very frequently I hear moms say their kids have made the decision to stop eating meat and to become vegetarians – for whichever reason, because they love pets and they can fathom eating a pet of theirs, because they dislike the flavor or texture or because they simply bring a higher level of consciousness - they pose a real conundrum to their mothers, who sometimes are not equipped to answer or integrate their kids wishes into the family food dynamic.
Here is where my new friend Gianny Liranzo and Madres Conectadas come into play… I met Gianny recently at a blogger conference in Miami. Her energy and passion to connect and to be an educative agent for mothers across Latin America was truly contagious. Gianny created the blog and web portal Madres Conectadas to provide practical, useful and realistic answers and support to all Spanish-speaking moms. She wants to promote positive upbringing, strengthening of values and integral growth for all member of the family. Madres Conectadas is based out of the Dominican Republic and provides support online for Spanish-speaking moms across Latin America and in-person for moms located there.
We are so proud and happy to announce that Madres Conectadas will be sharing weekly KarmaFree Cooking recipes in their website and via their social networks. Together we want to share with all
how easy and delicious it is to follow a more healthful and vegetarian diet. It’ll be an excellent collaborative project.
You can connect with Madres Conectadas in all social networks: They’re on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and even on YouTube, where they share videos of those pow-wows they organize in the Dominican Republic. And who knows… if all this goes well and maybe you guys ask for it, maybe I can join one of those pow-wows and make it all about the vegetarian cooking. Sounds cool, huh??
I really want to thank Gianny for trusting me and KarmaFree Cooking and appreciating how our message and recipes can be of value to all moms in the Madres Conectadas universe.
