72 Reasons to Be Vegan with Kathy Freston & Gene Stone

May 5, 2021

Watch Episode 124 with Kathy Freston & Gene Stone:

Kathy Freston is the vegan spokesperson, Gene Stone is a ghost-writer for humane causes, both are best-selling authors. What happens when they decide to put their brilliance together? A new book—72 Reasons to Be Vegan. Both Kathy and Gene have been on the show before (episodes 83 and 100, respectively), so we dedicated this episode to catch up and chat exclusively about the book. With 72 reasons, there was plenty to talk about. Meant to be an advocacy tool for those already eating a plant-based, we were delighted by the book’s fun-loving nature and fact-based evidence. From dismantling the vegan stigma to what’s really wrong with eggs, Kathy and Gene prove there are plenty of reasons to be vegan.

Fiber is our Favorite F Word with Diabetes Dietitian & Author Lauren Plunkett

Fiber is our Favorite F Word with Diabetes Dietitian & Author Lauren Plunkett

Who says you have to be defined by a type 1 diabetes diagnosis? Who says your life can’t continue to be just as rich or fulfilling? Certainly not today’s guest. Lauren Plunkett is a registered dietitian, a diabetes education specialist, a fitness instructor, a dynamic national speaker, a plant-based nutrition advocate, and a shining beacon of positive energy, exemplifying how to live your best life with type 1 diabetes. And she does it all with so much empathy, a keen intellect, and a smile so radiant I swear you could see it from ten miles away. Lauren is also the author of the book Type One Determination, which I love because it’s from the perspective of someone who’s both a patient and an expert, offering applicable strategies to anyone suffering from type 1 diabetes. Some of our listeners might even recognize her name for her contribution to our very own Switch4Good blog.

From Prison Rags to Plant Based Riches with David Israel

Okay, today’s guest has an incredibly compelling story. He’s someone who truly knows how to turn adversity into opportunity. Uber-successful serial entrepreneur, David Israel, has owned, among other things, a nightclub, a jewelry store, a chain of upscale pawnshops, and a maintenance company. But what’s most interesting, is that in 2011, while enduring the most personally challenging period in his life, he founded POP! Gourmet Foods, taking the snack industry by storm and forming partnerships with globally recognized retailers, nationally and internationally.
