This podcast is all about the love of food. We teach you how to cook the foods you love, vegan style, give you tons of inspiration for your daily meals, support on your vegan journey, and we especially help you make peace with food, and improve your relationship with it, so food goes back to being simple, fun and delicious. Join us as we talk about being vegan, body positivity, the anti diet movement and finding joy in cooking and eating again.
Ep201: Q & A: What Should I do with Non-Vegan Items or Foods if I’ve Decided to go Vegan
Today I answer a listener question from a new vegan, on what to do with some of those personal care products, makeup, beauty products, clothes, other personal items or home goods and foods that aren't vegan, once you've decided to make this change. The question "what do I do with my leather boots or jacket after going vegan", or "what do I do with the non-vegan foods I already have in my fridge?", are all addressed in today's episode. Going vegan means quite a few changes when it comes to the better treatment of animals and making more sustainable choices, but today I give you my input on several ways of going about this, all in which the idea of perfection is replaced with making choices and swaps as they feel comfortable, according to your personal circumstances. I share a lot about what this transition was like for me many years ago, we discuss the subconscious (or even conscious) fear of the "vegan police", and more.

Ep200: Clinical Psychologist and Researcher Verena Kacinskis on the Wounds Behind Perfectionism: Our 200th Episode!
In today's episode, our 200th and the first of 2022, we have one of my favorite people on this planet as a special guest. My best friend, clinical psychologist Verena Kacinskis is with us to talk about the wounds behind perfectionism, psychological defence mechanisms and what they are, whether perfectionism works as a distraction or a way to control. Verena shares how perfectionism begins to appear in her life and how to catch herself before it takes root (list makers, you're going to LOVE this story), as well as how to come down from a spiral of perfectionism when we're in it. We talk about whether there is ever a prize at the end of the tunnel with perfectionism, and we get to peel the layers of the onion, talking about the deep wound that is at the center of most human suffering.
Verena Kacinskis is a clinical psychologist and researcher. For the past 13 years, she has been integrating the concepts and techniques from Psychology and a healthcare system called BodyTalk, seeking to deepen and expand therapeutic results for her patients. Currently, she has been splitting her time between seeing patients and developing content to both educate and encourage self-observation, always with the premise of sharing resources that people can use in their own internal organization processes.

Ep199: An End of Year Ritual for Letting Go
It's the final post and episode for 2021, and what a year it has been! In today's episode, and in the spirit of New Year's resolutions and making plans for the coming year, I thought we'd talk about another way to approach the end of a cycle, and talk about the incredible power of letting go and releasing what no longer serves us. I share what my past New Year's resolutions have been in previous years, what happened during a very tumultuous time at the end of last year and how that affected my usual practice, and I share a special ritual and step by step process with you on how to let go of whatever is weighing on us, whatever is causing shame, whatever isn't allowing us to move forward. I also share some of the harder and more personal challenges this year had in store for me and much more.

Ep198: The Not Your Typical Christmas, Christmas Episode
Today's episode of The Brownble Podcast is not your typical Christmas episode. We've been in the midst of a couple of really hard years and a not so typical episode was more than called for. In today's episode I'll be sharing some personal stories from the Holiday Seasons of my life, the happy, the sad, the fun, the joyful, and all the missing and longing that comes with them. I'll share why this year Christmas has felt particularly alive for me, and it's not for the reasons you might think. If you're someone who loves the season, but has a hard time with it too, today's episode is for you. We'll follow it up next week with a very special episode all about New Year's resolutions and the power of letting go of what no longer serves us. Until then, Merry Christmas!

Compassionate & Kind Veganism
I’m an imperfect vegan. I eat mostly plant based, but since I’m at the beginning of this journey I do slip up sometimes.
Listening to Kim is like listening to an encouraging friend. She’s not judgmental. She truly believes every step you’re taking towards veganism makes the world a better place, so she’ll cheer you on every step of the way. Her podcasts give me the motivation to keep going.
Best vegan podcast for Newbies & seasoned vegans
I’ve listened to a few health and vegan related podcasts but Brownble. So authentic, informative, and optimistic. I love that this podcast is holistic in physical and mental health. Even though our journeys are different, we are still all learning how to make a positive impact and sustainable change in our planet. Very relatable and with tips that are applicable. I always listen during my walk or jog. Great motivation 💚🧡💛🌱🐾🌱🐾🌱.
