In this episode of the Sustainable Dish Podcast, I speak with Lierre Keith, author of The Vegetarian Myth: Food, Justice, and Sustainability, about her experience being a vegan for almost two decades and her eventual transition back into eating meat.

If you've watched my film, Sacred Cow, you'll recognize Lierre and her story about how it occurred to her while trying to grow a vegan garden that there is no life without death.

She could either be a part of the cycle that creates more death or she could be a part of the cycle that creates more life.

We discuss this and so much more.

If you are vegan or a former vegan (or know someone who is), I encourage you to check out this episode.
