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.

Though soy foods are not miracle foods, neither are they poison. This episode seeks to put it all in perspective and demonstrate that whole soy foods can be part of a varied, whole-foods, plant-based diet - but only if you want them to be.
