BNV003: What’s Your Why?

By Chuck Underwood @brandnewvegan

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!

Enjoy this episode and please be sure and leave your comments on WHY you are on this path.

Enjoy the show.
