HUGE Announcement: The Top Secret Project We've been Working on for Ya!

The day that I've been hinting about endlessly has arrived! Long gone are the days in which I tease you mercilessly and tell you about how excited we are feeling about the top secret project we've been working on, or the time I showed you lots of pictures of all the fun we were having at a mystery house in the mountains, or the time I shared how I fell in love with Carlos even more over a wooden table in the middle of a mountain thanks to this little top secret thing we've been working on.

The wait is over my friends! At least the wait to share what it is we've been working on with blood sweat and tears over the past year. 

Are you ready?!

Drumroll!

On Changes and Fear

In last week's post and episode we covered the topic of changes and the importance of practicing patience. Something we've lost touch with in this "want it now, get it now" society we live in. Today I thought we'd talk about fear, and the attachments we have to certain ways of living our lives, to eating in a certain way, to cooking in a certain way, and how changes can be scary and how we can move past that.

We'll discuss why lots of people got angry at a hot dog recently, why going against the mainstream can be so tough, and why we ourselves sometimes carry judgements that make changes a bit scarier than they should be. We'll also talk about some simple questions you can ask yourself when the road gets tough, to go from "I'm fearful of this change", to, "this little part actually seems doable!", and we'll talk about how sometimes it's the fear of change in our loved ones and the world around us that keeps us from giving things a try. All of this can apply to so many of the things we discuss in this podcast, including eating in a different way and going vegan, saying goodbye to the dieting and weight centric paradigm, practicing body acceptance and so much more. In the podcast version of this post I'll also answer a great listener question from Sam, on being a new vegan in a non-vegan barbecue, and much more.

Frequently Asked Questions about Veganism

We've got so many new vegans on board! As I told you in last week's episode in which we talked all about the importance of mindset when it comes to this transition, we've been receiving daily emails from you guys filled with questions, struggles, victories, challenges, and stories when it comes to your transition to a vegan diet. This inspired me to create today's post and podcast episode, in which I show you some of the frequently asked vegan questions we get, and the tips and resources that have helped so many of you and that helped me on my journey when switching to a vegan diet.

We'll cover everything from "where do vegans get protein and other nutrients?", "are vegan meats safe to eat?", "can pregnant women be vegan?", "can infants or children be vegan?", how to build a balanced plate, how to be in a relationship with someone who isn't vegan, questions related to calcium, omega 3s, iron, vitamin B12. Whether or not a vegan diet is difficult to maintain, and so many others.
