The Vegan View; How to Raise Healthy, Compassionate Kids

Have you heard of The Vegan View yet? I hadn't until I got an email recently asking me to be on their show as their first guest. Hmmmmm, I thought. I loved the concept and the name so I watched their prior weekly episodes, followed them on Instagram and became intrigued with what I saw. I learned that The Vegan View came about when 4 smart, chic gals became fast friends over vegan food and almond milk latte's and figured they would document their conversations about going vegan. This included everything from food, fashion and friends - to timely topics such as vegan ice cream taste tests, a review of the documentary WHAT THE HEALTH, and why are some vegans so mean

I agreed to join them and arrived one Sunday morning at Dani's LA home to film. I was greeted as I would have been in my hometown of Savannah, Georgia with open arms and an ask if I wanted something to drink - coffee - wine - whiskey, you know...the normal choices of anytime beverages. Declining only because I thought I might spill something on my shirt, we immediately started chatting and got down to business at the dining room table to shoot. 

This was to be an episode on vegan candy, but what it turned out to be was something MUCH MORE. Here's what happened.

We literally laughed, cried, and collectively hit those a-ha moments with ways to navigate through this compassionate lifestyle as a mom (Dani has a 6-month old baby boy!) a friend, a family member. By the end, I knew I had found my tribe. These girls were not only brilliant, adorable and genuine, they actually cared.

And cared BIG.

They were normal gals trying to make a difference in the world by what they put on the end of their fork. I left skipping out the door with excitement in hopes that we created some dialogue that would help another navigate this lifestyle a little easier or even prompt someone to give a it a go, even for one day a week. 

If you have any further questions or would like to see certain topics on the vegan lifestyle answered, just put it in the comment section below or in the comments on the video itself.

Here are some links we discussed on the episode.
