Loving Episode 43: Age Ain’t Nothing But A Number

Loved being featured on this episode and continuing the dialogue around living a vegan lifestyle. Age does play a part in changing your lifestyle but experience comes with knowledge and patience as well. Take a listen and enjoy.

Love this podcast

This is such a dope podcast! I’ve not only gotten some amazing tips on how to live a more vegan, sustainable life, but I’ve also learned so much about some of the challenges we, as a society, face environmentally.

I love how this podcast serves as a platform for black leaders in food and sustainability to share their stories and educate people on matters that are not commonly discussed, especially in the black community. The guests always have such unique, fascinating backgrounds and stories that are truly inspiring. Highly recommend to anyone!!

Absolutely love listening to this podcasts, where I am able to learn new holistic ways of healthy living, eating, and combining that with what it means for the culture!
