In today’s mini Q & A episode I answer two listener questions about getting started on their vegan journey. We’ll talk about what the start of this path can look like and why it’s important to find the right pace for this transition. I share some of the must read books and blogs on nutrition basics so you can make this transition easily and safely. I also discuss that very basic question “what should I eat as a vegan” and so much more.

The questions by our two “Sams” go as follows:

“HELP! I’ve decided to go vegan today and I have no idea what to eat. Any tips on how to get started if I’m not the most expert cook?”


“I’ve recently gone vegan and I’ve seen you show on instagram that you batch cook a pot of grains and a pot of beans at the start of the week, my question is how do I cook a basic pot of beans, do I just boil them until tender with salt and drain them? I’m feeling a bit lost with how to build my meals and any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.”
