Ep. 2 – Being Vegan in a Small Town, Raising a Vegan Family and Starting a Plant-Based Business

Feb 4, 2020Podcast

In Episode 2 I sit down with Shauna Chandler. Shauna is a vegan mom of two from my small home town up in Northern British Columbia. Shauna has been vegan for about 5 years now and is raising a fully vegan family. She’s a great little vegan cook and a vegan leader in her community. She also has a plant-based skincare line with her sister Krista.

In this episode we talk about:

  • how anxiety led Shauna to look into the vegan lifestyle
  • how the lifestyle has impacted her health and well being as well as those around her
  • how she transitioned not only herself but also her family to a vegan diet
  • the differences between both her vegan and her non-vegan pregnancies.
  • what her family eats as vegans
  • how she raises vegan kiddies in a non-vegan world
  • some tips for making the transition yourself
  • forming new habits like running
  • making new friends in your community
  • about the creation of her side business creating a plant-based, cruelty-free, zero-waste skincare line called Kream Come True.

I am not a doctor or dietitian. The information on here is based on what worked for me. There is a lot of research out there on plant-based diets and the positive impact this diet has on health which really made me comfortable with my plant- based lifestyle choice!
