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.

Ex-Vegan celebrities — Miley Cyrus, Ellen DeGeneres, Joaquin Phoenix (just kidding, calm down) — and ex-vegan non-celebrities (friends, family members, co-workers) leave vegans feeling disappointed and perplexed. In this episode I address why people stop being vegan in the first place. Is it because:

*they lack willpower?
*they lack compassion?
*you can't get protein and Omega-3s from plants?
*because there's nothing to eat?

And I address the responses vegans have to ex-vegans: 

*"they were never vegan in the first place."
*"they didn't do it for ethics — only health."
*"they were fake vegans; real vegans don't go back."

Join me for this extended episode as I tackle the excuses and the reasons behind ex-vegans and the assertions made by vegans who "just don't understand" how vegans can stop being vegan.
