Ep184: Mini Q and A: "I'm a non-vegan who needs help in dealing with my vegan partner"
In today’s episode I answer a listener question that came from a very different point of view. I’m usually here to give you support on your journey to making more vegan choices (among the many other topics we discuss in our blog and podcast), but this time around, the person who needed support was a non-vegan, trying to find peace and balance with their vegan partner.
The question by our “Sam” goes as follows:
“I’d appreciate if you could introduce tips to help a non-vegan partner who is never willing to change his/her lifestyle feel comfortable with their vegan partner. How not to annoy/bother them.”
Let's get right to it!

Ep181: Mini Q and A: Eating Processed Foods as a Vegan
In today’s Q and A episode I answer a listener question all about a common conversation vegans have amongst themselves, but even more so, that non-vegans have with vegans regarding how mainstream this movement has gotten, and the availability of many alternatives to meat and dairy, such a vegan meats, vegan cheeses, etc. I’ve addressed this question in the past in other Q and A episodes but never on its own and I thought it was the perfect opportunity to give you my perspective on processed foods. Is it healthy and safe to eat vegan processed foods like vegan burgers, meat alternatives, cheeses, etc? Today I talk about all the nuance surrounding vegan processed foods and how to answer questions about them.

Ep180: Spring Meal Templates: Current Favorite Quick Vegan Meal Ideas
Today’s episode is going to be all about delicious meal ideas, I’ll give you a short list of quick and easy dishes that we’ve been making during a particularly busy time, in the hopes that they bring inspiration for your meals this week. Rather than specific recipes, these are templates that you can tweak and where you can substitute whatever you have in the fridge for simple easy vegan meals, using three main batch cooked staples as the jumping off point and some store-bought items for quick snacks. Put on some tunes this weekend, make these three bases, and use the templates for different meals and snacks throughout the week.

Ep179: Mini Q and A: How to Handle Criticism about the Way you Eat, or Otherwise
In today's episode I'm answering a listener question I've received in many different versions through the years, but especially in the past few weeks, how to handle criticism about the way you eat, the way you call certain vegan foods, the way you do animal activism, or how to handle criticism and take it like a champ in general, are topics that all of us have to deal with one way or another. Today I give you some support in this regard, I share some stories on criticism in the age of social media and what having a YouTube channel has taught me. I also share my top two mindset tips for dealing with critiques or negative comments, and extracting whatever tiny nugget of wisdom might be within them, and which part to leave out, without feeling hurt or defensive. It's a short and fun one and I hope you love it!

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.
