Kindness & deliciousness

Where are all the other reviews? This podcast is a winner!
It’s a delight listening to these two kind smart thoughtful women discuss beans etc as I edge closer to eating fewer animal products. I love their philosophy of making things taste good to win over others. Genius. Their combo of voices make it easy to tell who’s who, and they obviously have great respect for each other. 5 stars :)

Knowledge is power or in this case delicious and nutritious

Loved hearing a great catchup of knowledgeable plant based gurus.

My favourite vegan / cooking / everything podcast

I have learned so much from listening to Michelle and Toni. They are so knowledgeable and bring on such interesting guests. They both have great voices and always speak about veganism / plant-based eating with such enthusiasm.

My favourite time to listen is while I’m doing my weekly food prep - I get so inspired, and more excited about what I’ll be eating for the week.

Thanks so much, Michelle & Toni!

Best wishes,
Melinda (@YarnderWoman)
