My name is Vic Leathers. As you can tell by the name of my blog, God, Coffee & Plants, I have three main interests in my life. These are not all of my interests but everything I do can probably fall under one of these headings.
First, I am on a spiritual journey. My god is not the Christian God. I left behind the dogma and rituals of the Christian religion years ago. I am not attempting to disprove Christianity and have no interest in bashing Christians. I have a great appreciation of what Christianity has provided me. I am now open to all religions in learning about life, various customs, and cultures. I am on a journey in search of calmness and inner peace.
Second, I indulge in dark roasted coffee whenever available. I enjoy the warmth, the bitterness, the calming effect, and how it opens my mind to the day. I enjoy trying coffees of the world and sharing a cup, or two, with people who are unlike me.
And last, I am a nutrition enthusiast, not a nutritionist, and cooking is my greatest hobby. I believe that eating “mostly” plant-based foods is the key to good health. Another reason for being a plant-based eater is that I have compassion for all animals so I don’t eat anything that has a face. I also have a great concern for the health of our planet. It is predicted that by the year 2050, there will be almost 10 billion people on this planet. Eating meat is not a sustainable way of eating because growing it utilizes too many of our precious resources (water, land, and air).
