    James tells us how important it is to plan your meals and why the weekly shop from local producers should be brought back.

    S5 Ep3: A lighthearted and interesting conversation with Calum Harris

    In today’s episode we have a fun chat (with some serious undertones) with Calum, who’s infectious personality and ability to show his followers a simple and quick way of cooking have taken him on a whole new plant based journey.
    From why he became vegan, to the TV opportunity that helped springboard him to success, we talk about his main mission of getting as many people to cook plant based food in a fun but not preachy way, and why he feels it’s important to reach out to more guys on this topic.
    He also tries (but fails) to contain his excitement about his first book soon to be launched, which we are just as excited about: The 20 Minute Vegan.
