BNV009: Back to Basics
In this Podcast Episode, I explain what my “Back to Basics” Bootcamp is all about, why I’m doing it, and how to join me if you wish. Show Notes Back To Basics Blog PostBrenda Davis, RDBrand New Vegan Facebook Community I mention Registered Dietician Brenda Davis and her Whole Grain hierarchy in this podcast. Here is her list of Whole Grains in order of MOST to LEAST nutritious. More info can be found on her website listed above. Intact: quinoa, brown rice, wheat berries, buckwheat, barley Cut: bulgar, steel cut oatsRolled: old-fashioned rolled oatsShredded: shredded wheat, mini shredded wheatGround: whole wheat flour, brown rice flour, spelt flour, rye flour. Flaked: bran flakesPuffed: puffed rice, puffed wheat, brown rice cakes. There’s a common misconception that brown rice cakes are the healthiest foods. In fact, these puffed cakes are so processed that so much of the nutrients in the brown rice kernel have been stripped away. For those of you who decide to join me…..GOOD LUCK! Be sure and join my BNC Facebook Community for support, recipe ideas, and accountability. Please report back and let us all know how you did. Your success will only inspire others! WE GOT THIS!

Why have you decided to start a Plant-Based Diet? Why do you want to become Vegan? In this Episode of the Brand New Vegan Podcast…. I ask the question….. What’s Your WHY? We could see fishless oceans by 2048. Because knowing your WHY will ultimately help you through the trouble spots. And if you’re “brand new” to this new way of living/eating – trust me…. There WILL be trouble spots! lack of family support eating out in a restaurant traveling friends judging you meal prep strange new ingredients not knowing how to cook having to make multiple meals Nobody sad this was going to be easy. But is it worth it? ABSOLUTELY! Because ultimately, no matter what your reasoning is for starting this journey, you will eventually end up helping the animals, planet Earth, and your own health anyway. It’s a win-win for everyone! So don’t worry about the little details just yet if you are brand new. Figure out your WHY first. And then when those little obstacles start popping up, you’ll remember why you’re doing this and just become more determined to see it through. And remember: We’ll always be here to help!

BNV002: That Vegan Conversation
<Press the PLAY button above to listen to the podcast, or you can download it for later. > That Vegan Conversation Show Notes We’ve all had that conversation at one point or another, trying to explain WHY we are vegan or why we are on this crazy new Plant-Based Diet. How do you respond to that? What is YOUR response? Be sure and comment, I’d love to hear how you handle it. This is the conversation I had with a friend some time ago and how I explained it. Original Blog Post Click here to read the original blog post: “A Vegan Conversation” Click here to read my original blog post: “Plant-Based vs Vegan”. Links & Resources Here are some of the resources I mentioned in the podcast where you can find additional information. Dr. John McDougall, MD Dr. McDougall is a Plant-Based Doctor and author of several books, including “The Starch Solution” who has been teaching his starch-based diet now for over 40 years via his intensive 10-day Live-In Program in Santa Rosa, CA. His entire program can be found for free on his website. Dr. Neal Barnard, MD Dr. Barnard is another Plant-Based Doctor, author of many books including “Dr. Neal Barnard’s Program for Reversing Diabetes”, and is also President of the esteemed Physician’s Committee for Responsible Medicine. Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, MD Dr. Esselstyn is a Plant-Based Doctor and author best known for his landmark study and book (Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease) involving patients with advanced heart disease from his practice as a heart surgeon at the Cleveland Clinic. All of those who followed his plant-based no-oil diet experienced significant improvement, in some cases actual reversal. Nutrition Facts Nutrition Facts is a non-commercial, science-based, public service provided by plant-based doctor and author Dr. Michael Greger that provides free updates on the latest in nutrition research. Type 2 Diabetes I know the discussion around Type 2 Diabetes and sugar can quickly turn into a heated debate. So here is an excellent TED Talk by Dr. Neal Barnard MD, explaining the real cause of Type 2 Diabetes and how to potentially reverse it.

BNV001: Welcome to the Brand New Vegan Podcast!
<Click PLAY to listen to the Podcast, or you can download it for later> WHAT?! A Brand New Vegan PODCAST? Ok, actually it’s a homework assignment, lol. BUT…it gives me a reason to try out some of this new equipment I bought, and learn the software. And believe me, this has NOT been a walk in the park. I thought making a video was time-consuming? HA! I had no idea there was so much to this. Media Servers Garage Band ID3 Tags Podcasting Plugins iTunes Can I just go cook something instead? Anyway, here is my very first practice run for all of you to laugh at I mean enjoy, and overall – I’m pretty happy with it. I was actually surprised how natural I felt behind a microphone, and I’m REALLY looking forward to making this a regular feature of BNV! BNV001 Podcast So what’s in this episode? Like I said, it’s really nothing more than me completing my midterm Blog Assessment. The whole thing lasts about 7 minutes. That’s it. As many of you know, I am taking a ‘blogging course’ through the “Elite Blogging Academy” taught by super-blogger Ruth Soukup. You see, last year I won a ticket to a 3-day blog conference where I met Ruth – and knew instantly I wanted to take this course. Ok, truth be told I went into it wondering why I was there….meaning I was already blogging and doing fine – what could she possibly teach me… Let’s just say, after it was all said and done – I felt very embarrassed by how much I had yet to learn and how many mistakes I had been making. So beginning last September, I started this course and one of my first assignments was a “Blog Assessment”. In other words – “Where are you right now?” I recorded that conversation in a video that I shared with some of you on my private FB Page. And, after finally reaching the midway point of the course last week, my assignment was to redo that Assessment to see what (if anything) has changed. But rather than make another video, this time I decided to make it a “podcast”. So that is what you’ll hear throughout the majority of this episode. A very dry and boring session of me spouting out lots of numbers. AND….you get to hear the actual voice behind the recipes, and what I envision the show format becoming. And I REALLY like the idea of interviewing YOU! Your successes Your failures What has worked in losing the weight What hasn’t Your eating routines Your exercise routines These might just mean the difference between someone giving up, or sticking with it. Any takers? Anyone feel like putting THEIR voice out there with me? Be sure and comment below.
