Toni and Michelle changed my life

In my early days transitioning into a vegan lifestyle a couple of years ago, I came across Plant-Based on a budget. That website, Toni’s meal plans and book changed the way I viewed vegan meals (it can be both delicious and affordable!) and ever since I started listening to this podcast, I have found myself inspired to do much more learning, sharing and creating empathy rather than divide in my approach to veganism. In a world so focused on what makes us different, I like how this podcast shows us that compassion for animals and other humans can go a long way in planting seeds of change. Wherever you are on your journey, you will find stories that can inspire you to see veganism with a different lens, and learn about so many people making a difference in small and big ways in their lives and communities. Thanks for being catalysts of positive energy and change in this world, Michelle and Toni! I have been fully vegan for nearly two years now, and your content inspires me to continue ahead with an open mind and open heart.

The Best Podcast Ever!

I just binged seasons 1-3! I orginaly discovered Toni and Michelle through Instagram and their cookbook "The Friendly Vegan Cookbook". The warmth, openess and suppport from their book shines through in the podcast.

They bring on an amazing variety of guests and ask great questions. I like that they cover all aspects of being vegan: diet, fashion, mental health, family, food, pets and more! The style of the podcast is like listing to a conversation between friends.

Toni and Michelle are my role models and feel like the vegan big sisters I never had. Thank you for all you do and keep up the good work! I look forward to listening in real time for season 4!

A must listen!

You won’t be disappointed if you give the Plant Powered People Podcast a listen! I appreciate Toni & Michelle’s approach so very much. After each episode I’ve learned about products, recipes, ideas, and ways to approach compassionate plant based living. From the happy intro music (love it!) to the way they emphasize leading by example-this is my favorite podcast right now!
