Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, known as “The Joyful Vegan,” has guided countless individuals through the process ofbecoming vegan. Now, in her seventh book, The Joyful Vegan, she shares her insights into why some people stay vegan and others stop.
A special gift: I hope Santa comes through with what you want most, for yourself and for the world we live in. I do have a gift suggestion you may want to give yourself in the New Year, if you’re a vegan activist or someone with a vegan business: It’s Katrina Fox’s course, Vegans in the Limelight, which teaches you everything you need to know about getting your message out into the world. Katrina is a veteran journalist and PR professional, author of Vegan Ventures, host of the Vegan Business Talk podcast, and you can learn all about the Vegans in the Limelight course at tinyurl.com/pr4vegans.
Blast from the past! ~ If you’d like to hear more from Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, back in 2017 she was on the show discussing how the words we choose can help or harm our animal friends. Also on the episode was JL Fields, VLCE, author of The Vegan Air Fryer. Have a nostalgic listen at: JL Fields and Colleen Patrick-Goudreau
A shoutout to our sponsor, Complement. Developed by vegan dietitian Dr. Pamela Fergusson, and the NoMeat Athlete, Matt Frazier, Complement enables you to get your vitamin B12, vitamin D3, and the essential Omega 3 fatty acids (DHA & EPA) in a totally vegan form that you just spray into your mouth once a day and know that your already great diet now has the full complement of essential nutrients. Click here for more info and to order. Use the code MAINSTREETVEGAN for a 10% discount.
And now the good folks of Complement have a new product: Complement Plus. While everyone agrees that B12, vitamin D3, and the essential Omega 3 fatty acids are nutrients people eating plant-based diets (and a lot of other people besides) should not overlook, there are some other nutrients that it’s also easy to be short on, even with a well-chosen diet. To tackle this, Fergusson and Frazier joined forces with Joel Kahn, MD, and together developed Complement Plus, a supplement in tablet form that includes all the nutrients in Complement spray, along with zinc, iodine, selenium, and vitamin K2. Essential for blood clotting, healthy bones, and heart health, the only plant-food source of vitamin K2 is natto, an obscure, fermented soy food and one that is definitely an acquired taste (and smell). To get Complement Plus at a discount, simply go to www.alpineorganics.co (where you can order regular Complement, as well), but this time your discount code will be MAINSTREETVEGAN+.
