    How to Create a Minimalist Kitchen

    How to Create a Minimalist Kitchen

    The kitchen is one of the most trafficked areas in any household. It’s also a potential dumping ground for clutter, whether on the bench surfaces or in storage. Not many situations are more frustrating than trying to get dinner made in a cluttered kitchen. Then throw in family or roommates, and you have a recipe for conflict, overwhelm and toxic habits.

    In this conversation, we take you behind the scenes of how we transitioned to a minimalist kitchen and created a much more peaceful kitchen environment where we were happy to spend time.

    Specifically, we discuss:
    - Why you would want a minimalist kitchen
    - The difference between a minimalist kitchen and an organised kitchen
    - Actionable tips to get started with your minimalist kitchen

    A Much Needed Conversation About Fishing

    A Much Needed Conversation About Fishing

    When it comes to ecological impact, the ocean often gets overlooked—despite representing the lion’s share of the worlds environmental issues. Commercial fishing has a devastating effect on animals, plants, CO2, and even the fishing workforce's well-being and safety. 

    In this conversation, we share our thoughts and reactions to the new documentary Seaspiracy and some findings on the ethics of consuming sea animals. 

    Specifically, we discuss:

    - Initial reactions to Seaspiracy
    - Industrialised farming versus fish farming versus recreational fishing
    - Our experience reading labels at our local supermarket
    - What steps we can take to help preserve aquatic life

    Thrifting Vs Buying New: What’s The Best Option?

    Thrifting Vs Buying New: What’s The Best Option?

    Does the effort of buying secondhand things outweigh the potential destruction of buying something brand new? These two approaches represent a few grey areas as we consider the philosophies of minimalism, frugal living, sustainability and gentrification. 

    In this conversation, we debate both sides of the equation, including some personal experiences along the way.

    Specifically, we cover:

    - The pros and cons of thrifting
    - The pros and cons of buying new
    - Finding the balance between both approaches

    Healthy Eating As Vegans (Including a Few Changes To TMV)

    Healthy Eating As Vegans (Including a Few Changes To TMV)

    As plant-based recipe creators, we spend copious amounts of time and energy trying to show folks that you don't have to miss out when it comes to food. There's an abundance of curries, cakes, cookies, pasta and pastries that you can make from the comfort of your home.

    However, we're quickly closing in on our 33rd birthdays, and we acknowledge that what used to work for us even a couple of years ago to stay healthy doesn't do it anymore. Our metabolisms have slowed down, and with that, we've had to change how we approach our eating and exercise moving forward. 

    This episode will give you a peek behind the scenes of the intentional decisions we're making to be more healthy as we age and how we plan to integrate those changes into The Minimalist Vegan.

    How To Encourage Minimalism Without Being Pushy

    How To Encourage Minimalism Without Being Pushy

    When you live your life with certain values, it can be hard to get others on board. In this week's podcast episode, we discuss how we can encourage minimalism without being pushy. It's a sensitive topic for many to bring up as we're mostly met with a defensive front and a sense of dismissiveness. Only when we learn to put ourselves in their other's shoes, can we have an honest and open discussion. 

    In this conversation, we talk about the issues that can come up with living or being around non-minimalists, what some of the objectives are for others when it comes to minimalism, as well as sharing plenty of tips on how to have these conversations with others and so much more!

elliejanel19 ,

my absolute favourite podcast!

I’m 18 and the only person i know who’s a vegan, trying to live a low waste/sustainable life style. I’ve binge listened to all episodes and it makes me feel less alone in the journey. Masa and Michael are so honest, knowledgeable, relatable and real and i’ve learnt a lot from them in this short time. Thank you❤️

In good company

I am fairly new to veganism, and am the only vegan I know. I love this podcast because it gives me a place to think about my choices and develop my reasoning. I have basically binge-listened since finding the series. Even though I am in the U.K. and Masa and Michael are Australian I can relate to all their daily experiences and dilemmas. Thank you for giving space for reflection.

Real and honest.

I love this podcast. It’s so real and honest about all the ups and downs of veganism and minimalism.

Michael and Masa’s conversations flow so naturally and they really bounce of each other well. It makes for such enjoyable listening.

If you’re vegan/minimalist/low waste/interested omnivore or anywhere in between, I highly recommend!
