A Full Lesson of The Roadmap Revealed! Veganism and Zoos, Circuses, Aquariums and Other Forms of Animal Entertainment

Boy am I excited to share our latest sneak peek of our upcoming course “The Roadmap” with you. This project that we’ve poured our heart into for the past year is going live this fall (2018), and it’s the most comprehensive online course to help you go vegan or make more vegan choices. We couldn’t be more proud of it, and sometimes I still need to pinch myself to believe it’s true that in just a few weeks it will be all out there for the world to see.

This course covers everything from finding that internal motivation, to the practical side of things, how to shop, how to cook, how to stay on budget, how to love all your social engagements and eat deliciously, while dealing with all the social aspects of going vegan, including how to share your life with a non-vegan. It has seasonal and special occasion menu ideas, so many recipes, we cover all the basics of nutrition and how to build your meals, veganism for pregnancy, raising vegan kids and vegans with special needs, what supplements should vegans take and so much more, it’s kind of nutty!

When your Job Isn't Vegan

This statement regarding "vegan jobs" sounds kind of strange, I know. What do you mean with whether or not my job is vegan? Can a job be vegan or not vegan?

In today's episode we're going to talk about what to do when you're faced with the desire to go vegan but at the same time you're faced with realizing your job or occupation requires you to still produce, cook, serve, or work with animals for food, use animal products, use animals for entertainment purposes, etc.

Just in case this sounds vague, let me paint a picture for you. What if you're thinking of going vegan or have gone vegan, but you're a chef or cook at a non-vegan restaurant? What if you're a zoo keeper, or you work in labs that use animals for research? What if you work at a butcher shop, or at a supermarket and have to handle meat? What if you work in a farm raising animals for food? What if you're a server at a non-vegan restaurant? What if your family business is a dairy based ice cream business, or a bakery that uses animal products, or you live in an abattoir town where most of the jobs available are in the slaughterhouse industry?
