Ask me anything (within reason!)



Today's blog is a simple one, if you've got questions, I've probably got answers.


At Toastmasters, Table Topics is my favorite portion of the meeting. If you're not familiar, this is how it works. The person leading Table Topics will have a list or box of questions, the participant comes up to the stage/front of the room and picks a number or card and the Table Topics Master reads the question. The participant then answers the question, aiming to speak off the cuff for 1-2 minutes. I love the challenge of having no idea what I'm about to be asked and then having to create an engaging response on the spot. It is exhilarating!


So, that's my inspiration for this blog today. Whether it's a question related to the work I do or you're just curious about me, post the question in the comments below. Some questions could very well become their own blog, maybe their own podcast! If you ask something about me, I hope you'll share a bit about you too, not a requirement but would be fun for me! (ex. if you ask what my favorite book is, I'd love for you to tell me yours too!)


So go ahead, ask me somethin'!



 

Thinking about going vegan?


If you're interested in going vegan and would like expert guidance, check out my Vegan Voyage 12 week one on one coaching program. We go deep and get into a lot of what I've mentioned above and more. Each week builds upon the last so you're regularly implementing and taking actions where at the end of the 12 weeks you'll be confident in your choice to have adopted a vegan lifestyle, nourish yourself - body, mind, and soul, and address any comments or questions from those in your life who haven't yet made the switch. Get more info here and schedule a free discovery call here to connect with me and see if this program is a good fit.

My question for you is why did you become a Vegan? How long have you been one. Is your family as well or do they eat Meat?

I became vegan for the animals because I didn't want to participate in the cruelty that comes from the animal agriculture industry. Despite being someone who grew up hating vegetables and didn't know how to cook, it was a powerful motivator that changed so much for me. It continues to be one of the best and most beautiful decisions I've ever made.


I initially went vegetarian in 2001 and have now been vegan since about 2015. My husband is vegan, we don't have kids. My mom is vegan as well. My dad, my brother and his family are not, my dad eats a lot of vegan food and uses the vegan products my mom buys. My brother and his family…

Oh, fun! Okay my question is what are your spiritual beliefs? I am a hippie Jesus follower, with a progressive faith, myself.

Hmm, this is a good one, Jeanine!


I spent most of my life as an atheist, I didn't believe in a god and I also didn't see the point in it. When my soul cat, Cookie, passed away in 2020, I couldn't fathom that she didn't still exist in some way, so, I started exploring what spirit and things like that meant to me. Science tells us that energy is neither created nor destroyed, it just changes, and that made sense to me. I feel very called to nature, energy and spell work, and tuning into angels and vibrations.


So, short answer, I'm not sure it has a name 😃

Cool idea! Here's my question to you: If one is a vegan, can that person eat something like, for example, meat to get other nutrients not found in veggies alone and be more healthy? - Danwil Reyes

Thanks, I'm having fun with it!


Vegans don't use or consume animal products, that's the basis of the ethical stance and the definition of the word vegan. Vegans can and do get all of the nutrients they need from plants, B-12 is a recommended supplement for vegans, which comes from the bacteria in soil, but studies are now showing that many meat-eaters also need a B-12 supplement. Further, humans don't need meat to be healthier, in fact, many of the diseases we see so many humans suffering from are lifestyle (i.e. food) diseases. Vegans have lower incidents of heart disease, diabetes, and certain forms of cancer.


I'm not a doctor, so, I thought I would include some resources for you…

ok, question- question....hhmmm....give me a moment.....Ok, I'll start by answering my question to lead you into my question for you. As an inspiring photographer years ago who wanted to photograph animals for editorial, commercial, and artistic purposes I was introduced to the photographer William Wegman back in college, by my professor then. A few years later while attending another class I had to give a 15-20 minute speech on one of my favorite photographers and I choose Mr Wegman. Well, I went into NYC ironically I traveled from Western Mass (where he was from to where he currently lives in NYC - not far from Long Island where I was born raised and currently live) to interview him. When…

she built the company and then was ousted!?!? WOW, that hurt just hearing it! Now, you gave me a one more fear of what I want to accomplish for my business! Miyoko- I will boycott the cheese because of expense but now for the expense of ousting her until she gets the appropriate actions taken for ideas and creations!

What a fun idea! Here's my question for you: if you were an animal, what would you be - and why?

What a fun question! I would be a crow. I love, love crows, they're so cheeky, super smart, and stunning, especially when the light hits their feathers just right. The ability to fly seems pretty cool too!
