I’ve been vegan for 20 years, and I’ve been eating meat the entire time. I’ve also been drinking milk and baking with butter.
Not mock meat. Not fake butter. Not imitation milk.
I’m very proud to be a contributor to my National Public Radio station, KQED. My latest editorial is called Meat, Milk, and Butter for Vegans. Take a 2-minute listen. And please share far and wide!
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.
