luv plants ,

VeggieDoctor Radio

Dr Yami
I have been listening to your podcast for the last few months and have learned so much. I have been vegan for three years and your enthusiasm and passion for plant based eating comes through on every show. Thank you for inspiring and educating we humans...we need it !

Feeling like a more confident plant based parent!

I love this podcast! We decided to raise our newborn son as plant based, but really wanted more information specific to infants and kids. Veggie Doctor has given us that and then so much more! Every episode has helped me become a more confident and knowledgeable parent. I also love how she explores other amazing topics for children, from dental hygiene to environmentalism.

Great podcast
