Episode 39: Vegepisode 2.0!

Vegepisode 2.0 >> Guinea Pigging Green

Hi friends!

Hope you’re well and healthy and happy. You can listen to today’s episode using the player below or by subscribing to the show on iTunes here.


Laura has been a vegan for 2+ years and I have been a vegetarian for almost 6 (!!!) with brief periods of pescetarianism and veganism mixed in over the years. Right before moving to Korea last March, I had been happily eating vegan for about 3 months after my experiment with transitioning to vegan. You can hear our episode on that topic right here or see some of the meals I ate here.

In the show we talk about a few different facets of the vegetarian/vegan lifestyle, including:

  • my experience being a vegetarian in Korea
  • what is and isn’t challenging for Laura being a vegan
  • The Official Podcast Boyfriend’s (read: Laura’s boyfriend’s) perspective on what it’s like to be a male vegan
  • having friends and family members who eat differently from yourself
  • some of our favourite veggie meals to eat:

We loved having this honest conversation with each other about food and our personal choices, it was really #real! It’s sometimes hard to talk about these topics, but we hope that sharing our experiences here will maybe make other people feel more comfortable with their own choices. We’re all trying our best and our best is always changing.

Again, you can find the show here or on iTunes. You can also let us know your thoughts and ideas in the comments below or on Twitter or Instagram!

Thanks for listening! All our love and non-judgement,

Hello dear readers,

I hope that you are having a magnificent week! I am personally coming off a high from yoga teacher training this weekend. We’re really being pushed to our emotional and physical edges and I’m loving it!

But no matter what we’re up to, Steph and I are always thinking about you guys, our podcast, and our upcoming blog posts.

Last week, I had the chance to write a piece for I Eat Grass, where I recorded my tips for navigating business lunches. It can be hard! Sticking to any diet while dining with new people — without being seen as difficult — can be a minefield.

I used to get silently anxious over The Business Lunch. Luckily, as one of those people whose job sometimes includes up to 2 or 3 business lunches a week, I’ve gotten a lot of practice. Read more at IEatGrass.com.
