Episode 4: It’s a #Vegepisode!

DSC_0018

Hello friends!

Welcome to the #vegepisode…. The episode where Steph and I talk openly about being vegetarian and vegan!

Confession: this was a little nerve-wracking, but we are happy with how it turned out and more than happy to share our stories if it ultimately helps anyone else currently in transition. Check out the episode right here OR rate and subscribe to us on iTunes.

 

So, what’s in store for our favourite listeners this week?

Steph recommends two great books that helped her make the switch: the Omnivore’s Dilemma by Michael Pollan and Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer.

I talk about finding inspiration from vegan athletes, particularly Scott Jurek in Eat & Run and Rich Roll in Finding Ultra. Ironman athlete Brendan Brazier has also developed some awesome resources for plant-based nutrition (like Thrive) that are 100% worth investigating.

Ay baybay!
Vegan professional hockey players are my jam.

We also answer some vegetarian FAQs, provide tips for eating out at restaurants, and discuss navigating holiday meals with the fam. Oh She Glows is a fantastic recipe blog (not to mention an awesome cookbook) with mouthwatering ideas for vegan holiday dinners — pies, stuffing, lentil loafs, and even egg nog!

Also—something important that we didn’t spend much time on in the podcast— a lot of people ask where we get things like protein and calcium. There are actually tons of plant-based sources for everything your body needs! Here is a really excellent infographic that I hope helps clarify the basics:vegan-health-infographic

The episode is only ~20 minutes, so we have a lot more to say! Ask us anything @GreenGuineaPigs or in the comments section below.

Love,

-Laura

ps. Why not try one of our many vegetarian and vegan recipes such as these savory baked kale chips?

    Way to go. I hope you create the future. I’d love to live in a world without the meat trade. It is so backward to see living creatures as food. Until we can live with compassion with all species we will never live in peace with ourselves. Harmony in everything.
