The holidays are coming, so I had to invite Tracye McQuirter on the podcast to talk about how to navigate a vegan lifestyle during this season.
Tracye is a 30-year vegan, national best-selling author, public health nutritionist, international speaker, and vegan trailblazer. She was named a national food hero changing the way America eats for the better by Vegetarian Times, and her national best-seller, By Any Greens Necessary, was the number one recommended vegan book on The Huffington Post. For 25 years, she's been teaching people throughout the United States and abroad how and why to go vegan for better health. She's been featured in more than 100 media outlets, including CBS News, Fox News, The Huffington Post, and The Washington Post.

I answered this question several months ago but wanted to put in with a podcast episode because it's so important.
How in the heck do you plan meals without meat being the center of the meal?

Some people think you can only get protein from chicken, beef, fish, eggs, etc. but this isn't the case at all. There are sooo many plant-based options that can easily replace the meat on your plate.
The best way to approach vegan life when you're getting started is to think about what you're already eating and how you can make a vegan version of that meal.
In this episode, I used vegan fried chicken, taco salad and chili as examples of how this would look.
Try not to overthink your meal planning, be gentle with yourself and I promise it will get easier once you're consistent.

I love eating out and I don't let being a vegan slow that down for me.
In the beginning of this journey I did because it was just too much to think about and I didn't like asking the server a million questions. It feel like it was taking away from the experience. *sigh*
Anywho, like I said, I love eating out.
In this podcast episode, I give you tips to feel more comfortable about eating out at restaurants and family/work-related events.
