#12 Think Plant-Based with Julia & Shane

#12 Think Plant-Based with Julia & Shane

October 28, 2019

In this episode we chat with the vegan couple behind Think Plant-Based. Julia has been an active vegan since 2000. She moved to Vancouver, Canada in 2008 from Berlin, Germany to pursue acting and art.
Along the way, she met her wonderful husband, Shane, and with him helped create what you know as
Think Plant-Based.

Julia has been helping to spread a plant-based vision in the community through hosting many local Meetups with the group, Meatless Meetup.

Shane has only been vegan for a short time now. He moved to Vancouver, Canada in 2012 from a small town in the interior of British Columbia. Growing up, Shane had horrible eating habits, no exercise routine and was 50 lbs overweight. Eventually, he started getting into fitness through DVD’s and running. Fast-forward to now, he now has better plant-based eating habits and a solid fitness routine that he has learned over the many years of trial and error.

#9 Joe Rogan is Obsessed with Vegans

#9 Joe Rogan is Obsessed with Vegans

September 28, 2019

*Quick correction: When we were reading the Biodiversity article, the projected land use was referring to 2050 but we accidentally said 2015.

 

It's no secret that Joe Rogan is obsessed with vegans. On his podcast The Joe Rogan Experience, he bashes vegan nutrition and trash talks the movement every chance he gets. Which is A LOT. After all these years, we still listen to JRE because we believe you don't have to agree with every opinion someone has in order to enjoy their conversations and be open to the different topics that are brought up. We love that he has a wide variety of guests and that he has come out in support of a Universal Basic Income, which we advocate for as well. Thanks to Joe Rogan and his massive platform, it is how many people first heard about Andrew Yang. We love Andrew Yang!! #YangGang2020 

BUT, in his latest episode (#1355) he takes things way too far and we felt it was time to share a response to his completely false statements. We don't normally do episodes like this, and we know he is entitled to have his own opinions about veganism, but some of his remarks were stated as facts so we felt the need to address a few things. 

 

We referred to a few articles and studies in this episode, we've listed the links below:

#6 Luckie Lifestyle, Vegan Ironman & Content Creator

September 1, 2019

In this episode, we chat with vegan Ironman Luckie Sigouin from @luckielifestyle.

Luckie shares his story about going from a bodybuilder eating 300g of animal protein a day to eating a very restrictive low-calorie vegan diet in order to lose weight to get into modeling. Although that worked for him in the beginning, he then switched to a balanced vegan diet that allows him to thrive as a plant-based triathlete.

You can follow his journey on both Instagram and Youtube.

#3 Dr. Matthew Nagra, Vegan Naturopath

#3 Dr. Matthew Nagra, Vegan Naturopath

August 6, 2019

Dr. Matthew Nagra began his journey into plant-based nutrition over 10 years ago. Struggling with asthma, allergies, and weight control as a teenager, he decided to begin his transition towards a more plant-based diet, and to his surprise, those health issues vanished. During his studies at the University of Victoria, where he achieved a Bachelors of Science degree in Microbiology, he decided to make the switch to a 100% vegan diet and has been thriving on the lifestyle for over 8 years now.

In 2018 he graduated from the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine and is a proponent of the use of plant-based nutrition in treating many of our chronic diseases. He continues to learn about plant-based nutrition through Cornell University and has written articles for Dr. T Colin Campbell’s Center for Nutrition Studies. He also volunteers for Nutritionfacts.org, an excellent source of evidence-based nutrition information, where he supports viewers in their health journeys. He believes the evidence supporting a whole foods, plant-based diet is no longer refutable and aims to educate the public on how they too can take control of their health, starting with what’s on their plate.
