Mothers and lessons…two things that, for many of us, have been connected since childhood. What are the most important lessons your mom has taught you over the years (about food or otherwise)? That’s one of the things we are going to be talking about on the VM Blog this week, leading up to Mother’s Day this coming Sunday. Also watch out for a guest post from vegan cookbook author Dreena Burton on why raising kids vegan is important (Wednesday), our Best Animal Moms infographic, based on our reader roundup (Tuesday), advice for non-vegan moms who want to support their vegan teens (this afternoon) and more! Tomorrow afternoon, weigh in to tell us  what lasting lessons YOUR mom taught you …we salute great moms this week on Vegan Mainstream!
