Brown Vegan (fitness & nutrition)

In the latest podcast episode, I talk to Cherri about how she transitioned her family to a plant-based lifestyle. 

We talk about the importance of getting your children in the grocery store and kitchen with you, how to handle eating out and attending events as a family & why it's so important to "meet people where they are" when you're encouraging family and friends to embrace this lifestyle.

I received a great email the other day, asking what spices and other pantry ingredients are a good starting point for a new vegan.

You don’t need a whole lot of exotic ingredients to start your vegan journey right now.

In fact, you probably use most of these ingredients already.

When I recorded my first podcast episode, I wasn't sure how the format would be. Since I get a lot of emails, I figure a Q&A format would be best.

I learn so much from listening to podcasts that I thought it would be fun to start my own. I was going to wait until January but figured why not now?

It's funny because I recorded this podcast at midnight in my pajamas and a head scarf. Good times!

It felt so fun and natural that I will definitely do more episodes.

This episode is 5 minutes but feel free to skip the first 2 minutes since I'm rambling. lol
