Vegan 101 w/ Live Planted!

Listen on Google Play MusicThis whole “vegan” thing can be super daunting to people. Restrictive, difficult, radical, etc. are some of the common words associated with removing animals from your diet. But it doesn’t have to be this way. With a bit of planning, preparation, and practical focus, shifting to a plant-based diet is actually pretty doable. We decided to go back to basics and team up with Alyssa from the Live Planted Podcast, which is focused on practical vegan living. We went through our favorite pieces of advice for the person brand new to this lifestyle, such as cookbooks, staple meals, and a bit of the basic science and reasoning behind going vegan. We also answered some listener questions from social media! Hope it’s helpful, and if you’re a seasoned plant-eater, be sure to share this episode with someone who is curious or just starting their vegan shift. And if you have any of your own tips or advice that we may have missed, drop us an email to Now go eat some plants already!
