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.

The word "mutilate" is a disturbing one, but I’m not using it merely to disturb. I’m using it because it aptly describes what I’m talking about. The root of the word means "to cut up, to cut off," and that’s what we do systematically to billions of animals - because we can. To my mind, to mutilate someone physically, to harm them physically is the ultimate violation of their rights as an individual. Please join me as we explore yet another truth - disturbing though it is - about our treatment of non-human animals. I promise the next episode will be much lighter.
