Live Planted is a weekly Podcast about living a practical vegan lifestyle. Alyssa, the show's host, is a Midwestern girl who felt the need to create a space based on living a plant based life in the easiest way possible. The show goes into health, wellness, activism, environmentalism, cruelty free practices, sustainability, animal rights, and how to make it all work while living a 'regular' life.

Live Planted aims to inspire and educate listeners by letting you in on a little secret: I don't have it all figured out either, but here are some things I've learned along the way. During the show I talk with awesome guests, like former Mtv VJ Lauren Toyota, Cara Livermore of Chickpea Magazine, and Hannah Howlett of 'High Carb Hannah' Youtube fame. The show has hosted vegan artists, tiny house builders, bakers, professional vegan athletes, plant based recipe creators, movie directors, health coaches, dads, and many more.

Part of the show is spent breaking down topics like 'soy: good or bad?', 'the realities of fish’, or 'how to travel while vegan'. There'll be ways to go vegan at your own pace, and ways to stay vegan for the long term. Join me in this pursuit to connect with like minded people. You can find the full show notes and more at LivePlanted.com.

    #171 Kitty Cotten on Minimalism, Sustainable Wardrobes, & Positive Birthing

    #171 Kitty Cotten on Minimalism, Sustainable Wardrobes, & Positive Birthing

    Kitty Cotten is a vegan mama working to share her life and approach to simple living online. Kitty lives in a 'duel household', meaning she's vegan and her husband is not- something I get asked about frequently. Today we talk about where to start with minimalism and building a more sustainable wardrobe. Plus, positive birthing and minimalist parenting, both have been labeled as nearly 'impossible' but Kitty shows us it's not always as it seems.

    #170 How to Lighten Your Mental Load -LNTS

    The idea of being stretched too thin is oh so common in our current society. Often in a non-traditional lifestyle such as veganism or zero waste we're piling more onto our plate, it takes more work and consciousness to live like this. It's almost a badge of honor to be busy, but how do we slow down, lighten our mental load? Today's episode shares 3 ways to lighten your mental load, so you can ditch the guilt and live a little lighter.

    #169 10 Weird Ways We're Zero Waste & Frugal w Amber of The Fairly Local Vegan

    There's a common misconception that both the zero waste and vegan lifestyles are expensive. Today I brought in Amber Allen of The Fairly Local Vegan as co-host to discuss unusual ways we are frugal while making less waste. Some of these things you may be familiar with and some you may be completely surprised by (hint: Amber doesn't use traditional toilet paper!).

    #168 Why Bulk Shopping isn't All That w Megean of Zero Waste Nerd

    Bulk bin shopping is practically the symbol for the zero waste world, right? Well today Megean Weldon, aka Zero Waste Nerd, and I are spilling some truth on the bins. We're talking about not having an easy go at cooking at home, and how to ease in, a minimalist perspective to zero waste, and DIYs as not a solution to making waste. Plus, bread makers!

    #167 Are Beyond Meat Burgers Healthier than Red Meat?

So what’s the deal? Are Beyond burgers actually a healthy option?

Great Information & Tips

Just started listening to this podcast and I’m really enjoying it. I’ve been curious about veganism and learning about the alternative foods/products out there and this is a great source of information. Very unpretentious and down to earth with an added bonus of coupon codes for certain products. Looking forward to trying Osea Malibu’s products!

Unique, Laid Back & Genuine 💕✨

Really glad I found this podcast, I’ve recently gone back to vegetarianism and needed a little positive energy to remember that it’s up to ME what I eat and how I treat my body.
If you just found this podcast and aren’t sure if it’s for you because you’re not a vegan, give it a shot because it’s not strictly about that! There are more topics discussed, like “health”, zero waste and even mental/body awareness.
Thank you for a really interesting podcast! 🤗

YeahGina ,

Love it!

I’m so glad I took a minute to find some new vegan podcasts the other day and stumbled on this one. I’ve listened to many episodes already. This podcast is calming yet is inspiring me to live more simply, and in turn help the planet. Thanks for your work Alyssa. 5 stars all the way!
