Description

Eric Lindstrom once ate 68 chicken wings in one sitting. Today, he works full-time in animal advocacy and has written two books on veganism. What changed?

 

The self-proclaimed carnivore adopted a plant-based diet over a bet with his wife. While he admittedly grumbled the whole time, what was intended to be a 30-day health kick turned into a lifelong passion.

 

Once Eric discovered that he didn’t have to give up his favorite meaty, cheesy foods, he stopped grumbling and embraced the plant-based way of life. 

 

With his relatable personality and relaxed humor, Eric encourages others to adopt a plant-based diet by illustrating its bounty of delicious options and its accessibility. 

 

A father of two young children, Eric also helps parents navigate a family-wide switch to plant-based. 

 

Tune in for some laughs, insight, and practical tips to make the switch. 

 

What we discuss in this episode:

 

- Eric’s past as an adamant meat-loving omnivore and his “reluctance” to go plant-based.

 

- The bet between him and his wife that triggered his overnight adoption of the plant-based diet—and how he only thought it would be 30 days instead of the rest of his life. 

 

- The book that sparked Eric’s curiosity with diet change—Colleen Patrick Goudreau’s The 30-Day Vegan Challenge.

 

- What to eat if you live in a rural area and don’t have access to alternative foods.

 

- The bounty of plant-based options available in stores and online including Eric’s favorite products—Tinkyada Gluten-Free Pasta and Bob’s Red Mill Protein Powder

 

- Basic kid-friendly family meal ideas. 

 

- Eric’s two books—The Skeptical Vegan and The Smart Parent’s Guide to Raising Vegan Kids.
