Today I’m honored to bring you an interview with Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, who is a powerful and compassionate voice for the animals. She is the author of seven books, including the brand new 30 Day Vegan Challenge, a gifted speaker, podcaster, and more recently, YouTuber. For those just beginning their vegan journey or even old hats like me, Colleen has a way of making veganism incredibly approachable.
You’ll have to watch the whole video above to hear all of Colleen’s insights, but here is a select nugget of wisdom about making the shift to vegan:
“It really is about thought modification, it’s not just behavioral modification. I do believe that they go hand-in-hand: I think that when we change our thinking our behavior naturally changes and when we’re changing our behavior, like I said in terms of muscles it’s changing…the way we think, the kind of chemistry and synapses in our brain. It’s really about thinking about things differently and I think a lot of this really starts in our mind, so much of it starts in your minds…it’s really all of the old thinking and misconceptions and myths that we’ve been told for so many decades from so many generations back that has to be changed and I think that when you have that shift, I think that makes the difference and I think it means the difference between staying vegan or not.”
