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.

Not only am I a perfectionist in recovery, but I'm one of those lucky ones that also happens to be an overachiever, and trust me, that is not a good combination.

Here's a look at what my thought process would be in my pre-recovery days:

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.
