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.

Whether it's the deep yellow color of egg yolks or the pink-orange color of salmon; whether it's the red shell of the cooked lobsters or the pink feathers of the flamingo, the color is attributable to plants. Learn why farmed salmon (90% of salmon eaten in the United States) are not really pink, why the yolk of chicken's eggs are so yellow, and why captive pink flamingos (i.e. those in zoos) are not really pink. Related to color, we also talk about the animals who suffer for the white of their skin.
