Podcast 80: Jess and Val on Holiday Mastery

By in Podcast

In this episode, we bring you a couple of yogi vegan gals chatting it up in NYC. Our dear friend Val and I met up last week in the Big Apple and recorded this podcast on the skillful navigation of holidays, family and change. From sharing Thanksgiving recipes to shedding light on the violence of this time of year, to tips on how to move from love and the practice of creating more consciousness around our choices, we cover a range of topics in this short but power-packed special holiday edition show.

You may remember Val from YTP #3 on which she shared her plant-based journey and the transition of her family to a healthier way of eating. Since recording that show some things have changed, Val has encountered challenges with her kids pushing back on vegan eating while also welcoming the turnaround of her husband Sean who dropped animals products from his diet after watching Forks Over Knives. She shares her commitment to moving forward and how she feels grateful even when what she has to do for her children is not what she would choose.

Val and I used to teach yoga together in Rhode Island and we came together in NYC last week to attend the Main Street Vegan Academy. I’m excited to say that we are both certified Vegan Lifestyle Coaches and Educators who are available to work with folks who are ready for a healthier, less violent life for themselves, the planet and the animals.

Thank you for tuning in and supporting the show. We are actively asking for your support, the YTP is at a critical point in its growth and here are the two major ways you can help us keep this podcast publishing every week:
