Setting boundaries and building confidence with The Confident Vegan - Jennifer Shlomovich


Are you a people-pleaser? Do you struggle with standing up for yourself and the decisions you make? Tune into my episode with Jennifer Shlomovich, The Confident Vegan and discover some ways you can start tapping into your own power and begin finding the confidence you need to show up in a way that is meaningful and true to yourself.

She helps vegans and aspiring vegans, eliminate people-pleasing so they can confidently be themselves and navigate the challenges of having a lifestyle different from the people around them. On her YouTube channel The Confident Vegan, she interviews guests, shares supportive resources, and recipes. As a recovering people-pleaser Jennifer is on a mission to empower others to set boundaries and not tolerate things they are unhappy about in life.

I know it can sometimes be hard not to take food from people as you don't want to hurt their feelings or anything. I can see how vegans might struggle with that - especially if you are a people pleaser. That food looks amazing - I would want to be going there everyday.

For sure, many people experience that, it's so great that vegans like Jen are there to help those who need it to navigate these situations!


The food was SO good, I am very glad I live so far away otherwise I would be there all the time for certain!

Thanks for this post on building confidence and setting boundaries! Yep- I’m a people-pleaser, a sorry person-and a yes person. It’s really difficult to break these habits. Thanks for the great ideas.

Oh gosh, the "i'm sorry" I do it too! I feel like I'm improving since often right after apologizing for no reason I'll stop myself and think, what was I apologizing for instead of feeling like I did something wrong. I'm a work in progress lol

Oh, what a neat way to support vegans! I love the idea of helping people live a lifestyle that's different than the people around them without diminishing themselves in any way. - Jeanine

Everything looks so good. And yes, I do tend to be a people pleaser, but I'm not sure if I reached the recovery stage. Or maybe, I'd rather be a pigeon pleaser! Who knows?

Haha, I totally get that, I feel like I still have some people-pleasing tendencies in some areas of life. I’d happily be a pigeon pleaser instead, they get a bad wrap and need all the appreciation we can send their way.

"Recovering people-pleaser" sounds like a totally legit title in many aspects of life. Looks like the two of you had a fabulous lunch and dessert that you happily shared with some pigeons. Happy Blogging in July! Tamara

For sure! I really appreciate Jennifer’s honesty around it, I think it helps people see that it’s possible to change. Lunch was absolutely fabulous and spending time with pigeons was the perfect end to our day.


Happy blogging to you too!!
