What's it like when your child comes home and announces that they're vegan? In this special episode we're taking your deeper into our personal lives to meet our family—Toni's mom and Michelle's mom-in-law—who share what it was like being launched into a whole new culinary territory and have a sudden radical change in their family dinners. We hope this episode helps both the vegans and the family-of-vegans as we approach the holidays.
Today we feature Lisa Okamoto (Toni’s mom) and Joyce Miller (Michelle’s mother-in-law) and pick their brains about what it was like to tackle a new way of cooking, prepping for the holidays, and supporting their child’s new vegan lifestyle! They talk about their thought process, what the holidays were like having to veganize meals, and their solutions on how they made it work to make not only their newly vegan family member happy, but the entire family happy and satisfied as well! Hope this inspires all of the parents and caregivers out there and happy happy holidays, friends!
❤ Michelle + Toni
