'Life-Changing' Podcast Celebrates Its 100th Episode with Food for Thought on Eating Healthfully in a Recession
Date:3/11/2009

Amid the gloom-and-doom financial forecasts, the hopeful and pragmatic message of the "Food for Thought" podcast by Colleen Patrick-Goudreau of Compassionate Cooks stands out

SAN FRANCISCO, March 11 /PRNewswire/ -- "If we don't have time to be sick, then we have to make time to be healthy" is how Colleen Patrick-Goudreau begins her 100th episode of her popular Vegetarian Food for Thought podcast. Using her signature combination of humor and wisdom to inspire people to eat healthfully and compassionately, Patrick-Goudreau offers guidance in these hard economic times.

For three years, Vegetarian Food for Thought has been offering a unique perspective that leaves listeners feeling supported, motivated, and inspired to eat healthfully and compassionately. Each episode addresses commonly asked questions about being vegetarian/vegan, including those regarding food, cooking, nutrition, and animal rights, and debunks the myths surrounding these issues. Drawing upon poetry, short stories, and other forms of literature, this is a unique podcast that works on many levels.

Since 2006, thousands of people have downloaded the Vegetarian Food for Thought podcast and have been profoundly affected by its message, as revealed by the hundreds of reviews on iTunes alone.

The 100th episode empowers listeners to eat healthfully on a budget and makes a point to distinguish between eating cheaply and eating affordably. "When I talk about eating healthfully in a recession, I'm not talking about eating cheap food," says Patrick-Goudreau. "I'm talking about considering all the costs of our food consumption - costs to our health, costs to the Earth, costs to the people who produce it, costs to the animals, costs to our spirits."

Embedded in the seemingly simple tips ("Eat at Home," "Buy in Bulk," "Cook from Scratch," "Choose Nutrient-Dense Foods," "Plan Ahead") and product recommendations (Earth Balance and Laptop Lunches, for example) are jewels of wisdom that make listeners feel empowered, encouraged, and excited about eating healthfully on a budget.

All Vegetarian Food for Thought podcast episodes, including "Eating Healthfully in a Recession," are available for free download at http://www.vegetarianfoodforthought.com or at iTunes.
