Getting started on a vegan diet is easier then you think!

Are you sick of being sick? Do you want more energy? Do you want to treat yourself, animals and the world with more compassion?

Unlock your best self with a vegan diet. My goal is to help you create powerful, healthy lifelong habits and teach you how to get started on a vegan diet.

My name is Nancy Montuori aka Ordinary Vegan. I am a health and wellness advocate, chef, consultant and certified plant-based specialist who champions compassionate living through my plant-based cooking blog, Ordinary Vegan.

The unifying idea for Ordinary Vegan is to encourage people to be part of a healthy community.

How To Listen to a Podcast

A podcast is essentially a radio show that you can get on the internet, so you can listen any time you want. You have two options: you can listen to a podcast through my website. This is called streaming

Or, you can download a podcast, which means you’re saving it on your phone, tablet or computer, and you can listen to it anytime, even without an internet connection.

To stream: Go to Ordinary Vegan podcast page and hit the play button.

To Download: Get it delivered to your phone or tablet each week using an app.

For iPhones and iPads, use the Podcasts app. You get it from the App stores and it actually comes installed on new devices just look for icon Podcasts. In the Podcasts app you search for Ordinary Vegan and hit subscribe.

For Android phones and tablets, try the Sticher app. In Stitcher, search for Ordinary Vegan and click the plus sign (+), to add it to your favorites list. Now go to the Favorites list. Tell it to download new episodes by clicking the gear in the upper right corner.

I personally like the a simple podcast player called Overcast. You can download it on your iPhone and listen to all your favorite podcasts. Hope that helps and now on to this week's podcast show notes.

  1. Good morning Nancy,
    I am new to vegan world. My father recently adopted a vegan lifestyle to help reverse heart disease and his progress is nothing short of miraculous. He looks and feels better than ever and his blood work is confirming tremendous progress. I am taking this journey with him. My wife and I recently adopted three amazing children and I am determined to give them the best nutrition possible. Luckily, they already prefer healthy foods over processed junk. My youngest son is five years old and he recently announced that he will never again eat an animal. He has decided to take the vegan path with my father and I. Thank you so much for the work you are doing. Your passion for health shines through in your podcast and I look forward to hearing more. Your story is inspiring and encouraging.
    Thank you!

    1. Hi Amber – Thank you so much for sharing your story and for your kind words. Your journey brought tears to my eyes. To think of all the trickle down affect you and your dad are having on people is what it is all about – spreading the plant-based message and sharing the gift of health and wellness. Also, I have 8 adopted nieces and nephews and that was one of the was one of the greatest gifts our family ever received. Most of them are grown up now and one of them is also in the adoption process. Thanks again for taking the time out of your busy life to share. Sending you lots of love and compassion!

  2. Hi there, thank you so much for this. I am a total beginner and feel a little overwhelmed but totally excited at the same time. It’s a true life-changing experience and I’m yearning for that xx

    1. Hi Tanya and welcome! And congratulations on adding more plants to your lifestyle. Remember keep it simple so you don’t get overwhelmed. A nice clean plate of food that includes a legume, a grain, vegetables topped with some salsa or a little soy sauce. Have a side of fruit with that. Make sure you are including some healthy fats like 2 tablespoons of hemp seeds or chia seeds a day. You can toss the hemp on top of salads, in your morning oatmeal or in soups. You can make a chia gel with the seeds by just adding some water to the seeds. Add that to a smoothie. Last but not least, remember you don’t have to be perfect. Good luck and keep me updated! Nancy
