Lessons and Gifts: Making Meaningful Holidays (and Lives)
This end-of-year episode is based on my motto that life is made up of a series of lessons and gifts, an appropriate topic as we reflect on the lessons of the past year, create plans for the next, and offer gifts to one another. This episode is about creating meaningful holidays (and lives) and includes a list of 25 Meaningful Zero-Waste, Ethical Gifts we can give during the holidays or anytime of year. Thank you, listeners and supporters.
The Last Thanksgiving Turkey
Every year as Thanksgiving approaches, it seems there isn’t a magazine, newspaper, or website that doesn’t feature recipes for every means and method of stuffing, brining, and roasting turkeys. And every year, vegetarians, vegans, and animal advocates urge the public (and their family members) to leave the turkey off the menu in favor of plant-based sides and mains. The problem is that by the time these well-intentioned campaigns begin, it’s already too late.  Not only do most people not want to forego their butter-basted bird, by October 45 million turkeys will have already been brought into this world, confined, detoed, slaughtered, eviscerated, trussed, and frozen. Let's try this instead. (The Food for Thought Podcast is brought to you by listeners. Become a listener supporter at!)
Ask for What You Want: Vegan on Vancouver Island
I'm gobsmacked by the number of people who think traveling while vegan is difficult or who tell me they just accept "good enough" because they don't want to put anyone out. If you're staying at a hotel, eating in a restaurant, or booking a room at a bed and breakfast, you are engaging with someone in the service industry, and as such...they want to make you happy. Enjoy this episode about how I found happiness on Vancouver Island.  This episode is brought to you by listeners! Become a supporter today at

When Vegans Should Not Use the Word "Vegan"
One of my goals has always been to take the word "vegan" out of the box called "vegan." My goal is constantly thwarted by *the overuse of the word vegan *the use of "vegan" to refer to people as well as food *the attempt by some vegans to narrow the definition and make the word "vegan" refer to every social problem that exists in the world If you call yourself vegan or have ever been told you can't call yourself vegan, this episode is for you.
