    Adapting Recipes. Adapting Ourselves.

    Adapting Recipes. Adapting Ourselves.

    Being vegan often invites criticism and challenges societal norms, as it requires a departure from the familiar. Yet, I think this word adapt beautifully captures this innate human quality that compels us to grow and change and learn and evolve. We have the ability and capability to adapt our tastes, our choices, and our ways of thinking: what we know, what we don’t know, embracing the dynamic nature of life. Our journey as humans is a continuous process of reshaping, refining, and evolving. In adapting, we embody the essence of who we are – a constant state of becoming. —————— Don't forget to support this podcast through Patreon or as an Apple Subscriber for bonus material, early access to episodes, and other perks, depending on the option you choose.

Great podcast! Love Colleen💛

I have listened to food for thought for over a year now. Colleen is a great individual. She has much wisdom to share and ideas to brighten your life. She has also done many interesting episodes that give historical context to food that’s super interesting. I have loved listening to her longer episodes while working, cooking, or cleaning. She just add a little bit of sunshine and richness to the day! I hope to one day go on one of her vegan trips because they always sound AMAZING🫶🌞

Inspiring!

I love listening to Colleen Patrick-Goudreau’s podcast. It gives me such motivation and inspiration in all aspects of my life. I share so many of her values on animals, food, and spirituality. She researches topics and comes to the table with a very intelligent, fluent approach. If you’re looking for some inspiration to being your best self and bettering your life, you’ve come to the right place.

Colleen’s work is some of the most thoughtful, heartfelt content I have ever come across. Her research and presentation of material is concise and clear. I have been following CPG/Joyful Vegan for many years and her work is an absolute treasure!
