A Skeptic Transforms: From Carnivore Diet to Plant Based

Feb 5, 2020

Watch Episode 60 with Eric Lindstrom here:

Eric Lindstrom once ate 68 chicken wings in one sitting. Today, he works full-time in animal advocacy and has written two books on veganism. What changed?

The self-proclaimed carnivore adopted a plant-based diet over a bet with his wife. While he admittedly grumbled the whole time, what was intended to be a 30-day health kick turned into a lifelong passion. Once Eric discovered that he didn’t have to give up his favorite meaty, cheesy foods, he stopped grumbling and embraced the plant-based way of life. 

With his relatable personality and relaxed humor, Eric encourages others to adopt a plant-based diet by illustrating its bounty of delicious options and its accessibility. 

A father of two young children, Eric also helps parents navigate a family-wide switch to plant-based. 

Tune in for some laughs, insight, and practical tips to make the switch.

What we discuss in this episode:

  • Eric’s past as an adamant meat-loving omnivore and his “reluctance” to go plant-based.
  • The bet between him and his wife that triggered his overnight adoption of the plant-based diet—and how he only thought it would be 30 days instead of the rest of his life. 
  • The book that sparked Eric’s curiosity with diet change—Colleen Patrick Goudreau’s The 30-Day Vegan Challenge.
  • What to eat if you live in a rural area and don’t have access to alternative foods.
  • The bounty of plant-based options available in stores and online including Eric’s favorite products—Tinkyada Gluten-Free Pasta and Bob’s Red Mill Protein Powder
  • Basic kid-friendly family meal ideas. 
  • Eric’s two books—The Skeptical Vegan and The Smart Parent’s Guide to Raising Vegan Kids.
