The Vegan Transformation Channel

This channel is all about becoming your most authentic, compassionate, healthy, and purposeful self.

Many people who transition to a vegan lifestyle – whether for ethical reasons, animal compassion, health, or the environment – experience a transformation in mind, body, and spirit. Aligning behavior with deeply held values brings peace, fulfillment, and freedom, along with a shift in our mindset about what really matters. Eating a plant-exclusive (vegan) diet can also contribute to dramatic improvements in health, fitness, and even mental health.

Discover the benefits of compassionate, healthy plant-powered living, wherever you are on your veg journey. Whether you are just curious about the benefits of eating more plants, or a devoted vegan, the interviews and videos provide tips and inspiration to thrive emotionally with a vegan lifestyle and experience greater fulfillment, wellbeing, purpose, and impact.

This channel was born out of the deeply meaningful interviews I have conducted for my book research on the transformative impact of a vegan lifestyle. I felt it was time to share some of the amazing stories, wisdom, and inspiration from these interviews in another format beyond my book (which is in the writing process).

3/1/2023 Interview with Todd Sinclair, bestselling and award-winning author of the Rebel Vegan book trilogy. Interview Highlights: Having grown up on a dairy farm in Canada, Todd never imagined becoming vegan. While running a travel and tour business in Southeast Asia, he experienced a severe food-borne illness from contaminated meat. He was taken in by monks, who nursed him back to health with a plant-based diet. After a week or two, not only did he feel better physically, he also felt lighter spiritually and emotionally. Ultimately, this experience led to him embracing a vegan lifestyle. He is now passionate about teaching and inspiring others to live a compassionate, healthy, and abundant vegan life. Todd researched and wrote the Rebel Vegan trilogy to show how vegan values are a fundamental way forward to avoid future pandemics, protect animals and the planet, and take care of our health.
