Q&A!: Vegan Meat Alternatives, Oil Free and Raw Diets, Tofu for Tofu Haters and More!

Have I mentioned how much I love your questions?! If you were to ask me what my favorite parts about Brownble are, I always tell you the same thing, it's kind of a three way tie between creating new content and videos for you, recording our podcast and connecting with you through your questions and comments. 

Every single day we receive a truckload of emails, comments, questions and stories from you and they're not only inspiring, but they help me help other people who might be struggling with the same issues you're going through. Those questions serve as the perfect reminders of what I also went through when I first went vegan or when I struggled with my relationship with food. I love to gather them up and create these little compilations with some of the most common questions we receive.

My relationship with food though, as much as I love to eat, went hand in hand with dieting. Almost all my life. Even until recently. Hence the public apology I want to start this post with.

A couple of months ago I published three posts and three podcast episodes titled the "A Way of Eating" series. I was so happy when I wrote these posts because my intention behind them was to separate veganism from all the dogma that is out there when it comes to food rules, i.e. oil free, gluten free, soy free, clean eating, etc. These posts had a little surprise in store for me, something I wasn't expecting at all. Something that came in the form of an epiphany/ice bucket in the head wake up call that caught me completely by surprise.
