On Day Six of the 21 Day Challenge, I highlighted four of my favorite Plant Based Facebook groups. Today, I share insights on six great podcast shows that are plant-based and vegan focused.
A few years ago, plant-based podcasts were non-existent. Today, you will find lots to choose from with more coming on the horizon every day.
If you’re new to the world of podcasts, a few to start with are listed below.
The Rich Roll Podcast
One of the first I listened to when I started my plant-based transformation was The Rich Roll Podcast.
There were a few reasons for this. One, Rich is 100% plant based. Two, Rich went from 50 pounds overweight, miserable with his life as an attorney to an ultra-athlete.
In that I wanted to improve my skill as a runner, I gravitated to his message.
Three, his show is rated as one of the top on the subject of high performance for plant-based eaters.
Rich is down to earth, pushes limits, is a committed husband and father and has a unique perspective on life and living. I personally find this very appealing.
Nutrition Facts with Dr. Greger
If you’ve been around the world of plant based eating for any length of time, you’ve likely heard of Dr. Gregor. And more importantly, you’ve likely been influenced, in a positive way, by his teachings.
Michael Greger, M.D. FACLM, founder of NutritionFacts.org, and author of the instant New York Times bestseller “How Not to Die” celebrates evidence-based nutrition to add years to our life and life to our years.
Along with YouTube videos, Dr. Michael Greger also provides plant-based health focused podcasts each week.
Lean, Green Dad
What I love about what host, Cory Warren is doing is leading the way of what great parenting includes which is raising his children on super healthy foods.
Lean Green DAD™ Radio has weekly discussions about food, family and fun. Guests and topics exist to inspire, motivate and help you get the most out of life.
They focus on the areas of plant-based nutrition, fitness, parenting and overall wellness. There is also a very content-filled blog about the plant-based lifestyle for the entire family.
Bottom line is this, Cory and his wife are 100% committed to raising healthy children and teaching other parents to do the same.
Main Street Vegan
No list would be complete without including long time vegan, Victoria Moran. Vegan for over three decades, Victoria is recognized as one of the positive influences in the plant-based lifestyle movement.
Victoria Moran entertains with the latest on the vegan life—it’s not just for celebrities but for anyone who wants to look and feel amazing, eat extraordinary food, help animals, and create a physical body attuned to spiritual growth.
You may think vegan life is complicated, expensive, bland, or just too extreme to make a lifestyle. This isn’t true!
Host, Monique Koch, has made it her life’s work and mission to show you how very simple the vegan lifestyle can be.
As Monique says, “I’m the person to help you start (and stay on) a vegan journey with your family! After being on this journey with my own family since 2010, I know how simple, delicious and long-term this lifestyle can be.
“When we started our own vegan journey, I was overwhelmed by the grocery shopping, meal planning and complaints from my family. I promise once you get consistent and persistent with all of these areas it will get easier to navigate this vegan life.”
You will discover that this lifestyle is simple, the food is tasty, and you can do it long-term with a family. YOUR family.
Plant Yourself – Embracing a Plant-based Lifestyle
Hosted by Howard Jacobson, PhD, The Plant Yourself Podcast features interviews with guests who are healing the world in various ways. From plant-based nutrition, to joyful movement, to evidence-based healthcare, to gardening, to environmental action, to social justice, to spiritual common sense – basically, all the folks he wants to be friends with.
