In this Vegan Point of View episode, I address an assertion that goes something like this: “Humans were meant to eat meat – just take a look at these incisors in my mouth” and then they point to these dull little eye teeth that would shame any member of the cat family. Or they say “Humans have been eating meat for thousands of years; it’s natural for us to do so.” That’s one point of view. Here’s my point of view.
Hello, and welcome. I’m Colleen, aka The Joyful Vegan, and I’m here to give you the tools and resources you need to eat, cook, travel, and live compassionately and healthfully.
For over twenty years, my work and podcast have remained free (and ad-free) and vibrant thanks to support from listeners, followers, and readers. I have no staff, no interns, and no assistant. What you see (and hear and watch) is a one-woman labor of love that is also my life and my livelihood. If this labor has impacted your life in the past year (or the past decades), please consider aiding its sustenance by becoming a patron or by making a one-time donation. Your support makes all the difference.
