Taking A Break...

updatedpodcastcover2019.jpeg

Back in May, I decided to take a break from the podcast to regroup and improve the quality of the show.

Even though I didn’t announce a relaunch date at the time, I was planning to come back in mid-August.

After months of consideration, I’ve decided to not bring the show back for the rest of 2019.

I talk about this more on my other podcast.

#100 About to Tell All My Business…

This is the hardest podcast episode I’ve ever done…but it’s necessary.

In this candid episode, I talk about my vegan story (started back in 2010), struggles with being vegan last year, insecurities about not having the life & relationships I want (yet), and being held back by shame. ⁣⁣⁣

I have to admit, I almost didn’t post this. ⁣⁣⁣

I recorded it with Nory Pouncil back in February, and it felt too raw...too real for me.⁣⁣⁣

It’s so hard to come to terms with your life not being where you want it to be...BUT releasing my truth is a part of my healing.⁣⁣⁣

This level of candor will help me do the REAL work necessary to help myself and others have the lives we’ve always wanted. ⁣⁣⁣

Shout out to Nory Pouncil for making it so easy for me to share MY TRUTH (that shrimp quesadillas story was supposed to go to the grave tho😭🙈).⁣⁣⁣

I truly appreciate all of the love & support I’ve received over the last several days. ⁣⁣⁣

I have THE BEST audience on the internet. I’m overwhelmed by the kindest emails, DMs, voice memos & videos.⁣⁣⁣

I still have so much work to do, but I’m up for the challenge.

You can also listen on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Stitcher.

In this solo episode, I share eight tips that helped me get my family to eat more vegan meals in the early days.

Tips mentioned in this episode:

  • Make sure school lunches are familiar, delicious, and appealing for your kids.

  • Have a chat about your plans (you don’t have to use the word “vegan")

  • Let majority rule when it comes to meal planning and whether or not a recipe/meal is good.

  • Test out new recipes on the days you have leftovers.

  • Ask your significant other to give you feedback on meals when the kids aren’t around.

  • Incorporate smoothies and fresh juice

  • Use meat alternatives when necessary

  • Get your family involved in grocery shopping and cooking
