BNV007: Who Is Brand New Vegan?

By Chuck Underwood @brandnewvegan

BNV001 Podcast

In this episode of the Brand New Vegan Podcast, I’m going to pull a Stan Lee and give you my Origins Story.    Please tell me you know who Stan Lee is so I don’t sound like more of a nerd than I already am….

Who Is Chuck Underwood and how did Brand New Vegan get started?

Basically, 3 different events in my life all led up to my buying that Brand New Vegan domain name.

  • My own personal health
  • My wife getting hospitalized
  • And the threat of losing my job

I explain it all and give you some of the same resources I watched or read when I first got started.

Boring?  Hope not.

Entertaining?  Maybe.

But if nothing else, you’ll hopefully get the picture that I’m just a regular person like all of you, doing whatever he can to keep himself and his family fed, comfortable, and healthy.

My Wife’s Meningioma

BNV007: Who Is Brand New Vegan?

I told you it was big.

It took 14 hrs to remove the stupid thing, one millimeter at a time.

My wife was in Rehab for another week after surgery, just to make sure she could function normally: Physical Therapy, Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy, that kind of stuff.

We were very blessed to have had an amazing team of Neurosurgeons at Legacy Emmanuel, and also the good folks over at the Rehab Institute of Oregon. (RIO)

Today, you could never tell anything had happened.
