Episode 23 - Our Vegan Life

I've been really into hearing all about the vegan life and how it's worked for families.  I'm so happy I got a chance to catch up with my friend Jamila in Episode 23 to talk about this very topic.  Jamila talks all about what prompted her family to go the vegan route and how she introduced it to her family.  Our conversation was so much fun. 

One important thing that we totally forgot to discuss during our recorded conversation were some of the benefits Jamila noticed instantly from being vegans. Those benefits for her are improved skin texture, her periods are shortened in length, and her period pains has dropped dramatically.

I hope you enjoy this week's episode and get some great tips on vegan life.

Also, please don't forget to check out on IG Daniel's Caribbean Kitchen @danielscaribbeankitchen and Jamila's page for some great food inspiration @miladee92984
