    In this episode of the Vegetarian Zen podcast, we’re going to be discussing some food and beverage trends expected this year.  Neither Larissa nor I consider ourselves “trendy” but when it comes to all things veg, it’s neat to see how much people are adapting even more flexitarian lifestyles whether it be  because of their own health, the animals, the environment, or a combination of these.

The veggie friends you need in your life

I’ve been a listener for a long time and feel like these ladies are my friends. I tune in at the gym, driving to work, while I walk, cook, fold laundry - anytime! It’s like we’re just hanging out. Their conversations are approachable, compassionate, informative, and funny. I appreciate their mission of spreading love and kindness as people learn about a plant-based lifestyle. All are welcome! I’m so glad to be part of their community. You should be too!
