Food for Thought Podcast starts with the premise that being vegan is a means to an end — not an end in itself. Food for Thought addresses all aspects of eating and living compassionately and healthfully, including living zero waste! Each episode addresses commonly asked questions about being vegan, including those regarding animal protection, food, cooking, eating, and nutrition — and debunks the myths surrounding these issues.

Finding a compatible romantic partner is an age-old desire and one that comes with challenges, hopes, fears, and heartbreak - regardless of who you are, where you live, or how you eat. For vegans who want to date only vegans (i.e. like-minded folks who share similar values - something we all went!), the dilemma is the fact that because vegans represent a small segment of the general population (for now!), it narrows our choices somewhat. By the time you weed out potential partners based on age, location, gender, compatibility, etc., you're swimming alone in a pretty small pool. The obvious solution is to broaden our options by dating non-vegans, which comes with its own set of issues. Join me as I share my own experience dating an animal-eater and why it was his character - not his behavior - that drew me to him (and that eventually compelled him to become vegan). I also offer some resources on meeting like-minded folks and on how to best use non-vegan dating websites.

I am the only vegan in my church and a guy from church ask me out for a get to know each other date. We are very both very strict christians. And I ask a non-vegan friend where I should take him along, and We figure out if He would "survive" a presbyterian restaurant (that is the most vegan we have in town), it could work :) And it did! This was in august, and we are getting married in november, and that restaurant is our place now, and he has always order vegan, and he loves my vegan meals. He also think it is okay with vegan wedding cake and most of the food. I am feeling so blessed! He still eat meat, but he knows I will not make any food to him that is not vegan. Thank you so much for this, so interesting, and also the last episode about keeping a vegan home was great! Love all tips about how to live in a mix household, vegan and non-vegan I mean :) Thank you and God bless :)
