169: Self-Reflection

169: Self-Reflection

This episodes contains language and content not suitable for children. In this episode, I've done a bit of self-reflecting (What? No guest??... NOPE). What is this thing called life, and what's my purpose here? How do we heal from past traumas and use them for the best today?

If you're looking to the answers to those questions, you won't find them here.. you'll just find me pondering the thoughts in my head. Hopefully I can at least help you feel like you're not alone if you are thinking the same thing. Love you guys!

160: Vegan Living for Earth

Beata grew up in Communist Poland where meat was rationed and people were looking for alternative ways to get it. She tells the story of childhood experiences where her family would slaughter pigs in their own backyard to get around the mandatory rations. When she was a young adult, she came to the US as an exchange student and experienced even more difficulties (I'll allow her to explain).

Today, Beata is a mother, a vegan, and an advocate for plant-based cooking and eating! In this podcast, she also shares how she cured her daughter of what seemed like an incurable respiratory disease, by switching her to a plant-based diet.

Beata is also offering a free online training for those interested in switching to a vegan lifestyle, but there's only 10 spots available!
