The 30-Day Vegan Challenge with Colleen Patrick-Goudreau



Ever since Erin and I went vegan, we keep seeing Colleen Patrick-Goudreau pop up everywhere. She’s the author of some of our favorite cookbooks and host of a podcast everyone should listen to. On top of that, I recently found out she would also be attending the Holistic Holiday at Sea cruise with me and my family (and Robert Cheeke from last week’s episode).

But I never had a good enough excuse to reach out to her. Until now.

Colleen just published an impressive new book called The 30-Day Vegan Challenge, and considering my love for habit forming challenges, I knew I had to bring her on the show. In today’s episode, we discuss how best to transition to a plant-based diet, and the benefits of going “all-in” instead of taking the small-steps approach I often recommend.

Here’s what we talk about in this episode:

  • Taking small-steps vs. going all-in when it comes to going vegan
  • What to do before you take action on your diet
  • Common mistakes people make when changing their diet
  • The social aspects of going vegan
  • How to deal with non-vegan cravings
