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.

Calorie for calorie, dark green leafy vegetables are perhaps the most concentrated source of nutrition of any food. There are over one thousand species of plants with edible leaves, including Arugula, Beet Greens, Bok Choy, Brussels Sprouts, Collard greens, Cabbage, Chard, Chicory, Dandelion Greens, Endive, Escarole, Iceberg Lettuce, Kale, Kohlrabi, Mustard Greens, Purslane, Romaine, Sorrel, Spinach, Tatsoi, Turnip Greens, Watercress – and so many others. Join me as I talk about seven of these green leafies - their history, their etymology, how to store and wash them, how to cook them, and how to make them delicious so that you'll get them in your body - any which way.
