#45 Fur, Leather, and Ethical Dilemmas: Navigating the Vegan Transition

#45 Fur, Leather, and Ethical Dilemmas: Navigating the Vegan Transition
Recently, I posed a question on social media: “When you became vegan, what did you do with any products that were made of leather?” The responses were enlightening and sparked a lot of personal reflection. Just two weeks before I went vegan, I bought a white fur jacket that I absolutely loved. But, since then, I’ve been conflicted about keeping it.   Throughout this episode, I’ll be sharing my journey in trying to find a clearer answer. We'll explore the ethical differences between leather shoes and a fur coat, and why I still wear my leather footwear but haven’t touched that jacket. Is there really a difference, or am I just rationalising my choices?   We’ll also hear from other vegans who chose to donate their leather items to charity shops, and discuss a powerful comment from a Facebook user who said, “Wearing them felt barbaric once I had my ethical position clear in my own mind.” This got me thinking about speciesism and waste, and how they tie into our vegan values.   “There is no difference between fur and leather.”“What do I do with this fur jacket? I just think throwing it away is so disrespectful… it’s trashing it. and wearing it is dishonouring what I believe in…”“I haven’t got a ‘this is right, this is wrong’” Is Rachel still in that place at the end of the episode?Many vegans gave their leather products to charity shops.“Wearing them felt barbaric once I had my ethical position clear in my own mind.”Speciesism is incompatible with veganism“From the beginning of this episode to now I’m finding out much more information.”“This is my process of working it through – you’re with me on this journey!”     Valuable Resources The Elephant In The Room blog: https://theresanelephantintheroomblog.wordpress.com/2019/11/19/about-the-words-we-use-waste/?fbclid=IwZXh0bgNhZW0CMTAAAR1hBLZHUUhQsvAdeFcQksMJ7gFYVC45L83HE2niJjDebzm9LjUSlAemmbk_aem_AQY-0jimeOiqv7dSRPWesn0ocfdixLsuq6N-B93QOpiBMSR9n_QloN2ZuzTZ0Vr-K8qV5hQRbTeSRd-Mmbxyvzqt   For an extensive list of foods with their carb, fat and protein count, go here: https://www.rachelgtherapy.co.uk/1-what-why-and-how For a keto-vegan start-up menu and shopping list go here: https://www.rachelgtherapy.co.uk/1-what-why-and-how   Host Bio Rachel, a once morbidly obese individual, experienced a remarkable body transformation through the keto diet.

#44 Kitchen Capers: Navigating Batch Cooking in a Friend's Kitchen
Welcome to another episode of The Keto Vegan podcast! Today, join Rachel on a unique journey as she invites you into a day in the life of a keto vegan. Rachel finds herself in the midst of a friend's kitchen, embarking on a batch cooking adventure. With pots simmering and spices sizzling, she navigates the challenge of balancing flavours, portion sizes, and freezer space. Will she conquer the art of batch cooking without overcooking or running out of freezer room? Tune in as Rachel shares her insights, tips, and perhaps a few hilarious mishaps along the way. Get ready to be inspired and entertained as you join Rachel on this culinary escapade of keto vegan living! Recipes Stuffed mushrooms: 8 large flat mushrooms remove the stalks, chop them finely, add them to a pan with sesame oil (or any of your choice ready to cook), Sainsbury’s free from soft cheese, spread that on the mushrooms where you removed the stalk (not the outside!). Place those on a baking tray, Chop up spring onions, 2 boxes of This Isn’t Bacon Lardons and add them to the pan then start frying until cooked through. Baby plum tomatoes onto the mushrooms, spoon on the bacon mix, grated vegan cheese on top (don’t add this is you need to get into ketosis), top with chopped chives. Bake in a 180°C oven for 20 minutes. Spinach, Mushroom and fake Chicken Satay: Fake chicken in a big pan, start frying in oil or cooking in vegan butter, add a bag of frozen spinach, bag of frozen mushrooms, I put in a bag of frozen Chargrilled Mediterranean veg but won’t do that again. Heat through and simmer, then I added 700g peanut butter, spices (choose which you want – I like it hot so add chilli, cayenne pepper and so on) and coconut cream. Cauliflower Cheese with Chorizo Shroom Dog: 1 bag of frozen cauliflower into casserole dish. Chop up the shroom dogs, put those on top of the cauliflower, I put the rest of the baby plum tomatoes on top too. Sauce: 2 tubs of free from soft cheese, 300ml mayonnaise, 1 pot of Elmlea Plant Double. Garlic powder. Heat gently. No need to let it boil. Once heated through pour on top of the cauliflower etc, gently stir it around and put in the oven at 180°C. After 20 minutes, take it out, turn it to ensure the sauce is over all the veg. Top with grated cheese (careful with the amount due to the high-carb count on this) and you can add any left over chives. Bake again until thoroughly heated through and bubbling. May be another 40 minutes. Celeriac burgerslaw. Grate the celeriac – it is much easier than I thought – I thought it would be too hard and dense but it isn’t. Then mix together with: finely chopped 2 packs of dill, turmeric, smoked paprika, cayenne pepper, vegan mayo, garlic puree, mustard, chili paste, tomato puree, liquid stevia.

#41 Plant-Powered Revolution: Saving Health, Wealth, and the World
Welcome to this episode of The Keto Vegan podcast with Rachel, where she explores the intersection of health, sustainability, and mindful living. In this episode, she delves into three pivotal topics shaping our world today. First, Rachel uncovers the staggering potential for societal change: if everyone in the UK adopted a plant-based diet, it could save the NHS a staggering £6.7 billion annually. Then, she navigates the intricate landscape of nutrition, unveiling how plant-based proteins offer superior health benefits compared to certain carcinogenic animal proteins. Finally, Rachel confronts the urgent reality of our planet's fate, discussing the critical two-year timeline we have to enact meaningful change. Join Rachel as she unravels these pressing issues and discover how embracing a keto vegan lifestyle can pave the way for a healthier, more sustainable future.   Key Takeaways Two years to save the world’: UN climate chief pleads for fundingHow to save the NHS 6.7bn a yearGoing plant-based can reduce Type 2 Diabetes and certain cancersPrevention is better than cureFor every million people going vegan the anticipated reduction in illness could save the NHS £121mDiets high in animal protein specifically can be harmful for gut health and may even raise the risk of developing inflammatory bowel disease.The World Health Organization has classified processed meats including ham, bacon, salami and frankfurts as a Group 1 carcinogen (known to cause cancer)Processed meat increases your risk of bowel and stomach cancer.Red meat, such as beef, lamb and pork, has been classified as a Group 2A carcinogen which means it probably causes cancer.If you’ve had cancer, maintaining a healthy diet can help prevent it from coming back?A “quantum leap” in financeis vital to help countries speed up plans to cut planet-cooking emissions.“When I say we have two years to save the world, it begs the question – who exactly has two years to save the world?” he said. “The answer is every person on this planet.” Simon Stiell“The only surefire way to get climate at the top of the cabinet agenda is if enough people raise their voices.

#40 Buzzworthy Bites: Navigating the Avocado Vegan Controversy
In this episode Rachel, having been asked a number of times if she’s actually vegan because she has bought an avocado, thought it was time to explore the issue and create an episode to answer questions such as these: are almonds and avocados vegan?can vegans eat avocado?do vegans eat avocados?how are avocados not vegan?why aren’t avocados vegan?why is veganism so associated with avocados?fellow vegans do you purchase and consume avocados?   For a keto-vegan avocados are an excellent choice of food because their nutritional values, per 100g, are: fat 19.5, carbs 2.9, protein 1.9 fibre 3.4. They also include 485 mg of potassium, vitamin C, folate, vitamin B6, pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), vitamin E, and magnesium.   Find out how Rachel thinks we can change the world; if she remembers the first time she ever had some avocado; and whether she does or does not buy them.   It is claimed that avocados have been blamed for driving millennials to the brink of financial ruin, (this links to an Australian article claiming that eating Avocados on toast is costing millennials the price of a house deposit! Take this article with a pinch of salt I feel!) Avocados also then became a health hazard with the proliferation of “avocado hand” injuries (caused by sloppy attempts to remove the pit with a chef’s knife). Finally, and Rachel thinks this is the biggest controversy QI asked that fateful question around avocados not being vegan. The Vegan Society, who created the word ‘vegan’ and ‘veganism’ states the definition of being a vegan: "is a way of living which seeks to exclude—as far as is possible and practicable—all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals ... In dietary terms it denotes the practice of dispensing with all products derived wholly or partly from animals."  In an ideal world, we would live entirely independent of animals, and would not take advantage of their natural processes. But the definition acknowledges that it is not possible for every individual to completely avoid all forms of exploitation. Because many crops, in the mass quantity needed, are difficult to cultivate naturally, they rely on bees which are taken, in their hives, on backs of trucks, long distances across California, USA. This is known as migratory bee-keeping. It is an unnatural use of animals.   Valuable Resources For an extensive list of foods with their carb, fat and protein count, go here: https://www.rachelgtherapy.co.uk/1-what-why-and-how For a keto-vegan start-up menu and shopping list go here: https://www.rachelgtherapy.co.uk/1-what-why-and-how Articles Rachel used in researching this important issue: https://www.thekitchn.com/are-avocados-vegan-migratory-bees-263550https://www.tastingtable.com/849272/why-some-people-believe-avocados-arent-vegan/https://www.veganfoodandliving.com/features/are-avocados-vegan/   Host Bio Rachel, a once morbidly obese individual, experienced a remarkable body transformation through the keto diet.

#39 Carbs on Hold: My Keto Vegan Move
In this shorter episode Rachel gets a bit anecdotal as she is moving from her house and shares a bit of her story, going back to 2007. Way back then, after the separation from her husband, she and her three children (ages 9 to 12) moved in with her dad in a quirky place on the beach (the garden backed on to the pebbles on the beach) for six months or so before she moved to Chichester, West Sussex. Back then she was neither vegan nor keto and did all the cooking for her children and her dad. Roll on to 2021 and her Dad suggests that they buy a place together. Rachel, at that time, was single (and seems to be forever that way!) and decided that may be a good idea, especially as her father was getting more and more frail.   However, things were very different this time and her father really turned his nose up at her vegan food so she was unable to cook for them both – Rachel won’t cook meat, in fact, Rachel would prefer if no animal products came in the house at all!   Find out how things turned out and find out a little bit about her mother’s attitude to Rachel’s food too.   Valuable Resources For an extensive list of foods with their carb, fat and protein count, go here: https://www.rachelgtherapy.co.uk/1-what-why-and-how For a keto-vegan start-up menu and shopping list go here: https://www.rachelgtherapy.co.uk/1-what-why-and-how Dy’s podcast: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VqqJt5m4bfU Dy's vegan keto article: https://ibpf.org/my-life-changing-vegan-ketogenic-diet-for-bipolar-disorder/   Host Bio Rachel, a once morbidly obese individual, experienced a remarkable body transformation through the keto diet.

#37 Plant-Powered Showdown: Vegan vs. Meat Myths Exposed!
In this episode Rachel delves into the world of veganism with a fresh perspective. As a passionate advocate for animal rights, she is very aware that she is biased towards a plant based diet. But, she also believes in the power of informed decisions. That's why she encourages you to do your own research and question everything, including, if not especially, her own opinions. Sure, there are critics out there who point to supposed health concerns associated with veganism. But armed with evidence and research, we'll navigate through the myths and misconceptions. From concerns about micronutrient deficiencies to the benefits of supplementation, we'll separate fact from fiction. Key Takeaways: Rachel looks at ‘risks of following a vegan diet’ and the risks of eating meat.Rachel likes to look for evidence and research.The main criticisms of a vegan diet are the lack of micronutrients such as Vit B12, Vit D, Iron, Omega 3. All of these things can be supplemented by supplements! All links to articles are at the bottom of these show notes. Best Moments: I definitely encourage you to do your own researchI am going to be biased about this!As a vegan for the animals, I don’t like looking at the negatives of living this way and eating this way because there is no way that I want to eat animal products ever again.It’s really good for me, really challenging, but really good for me to look at this.Sausages – I didn’t know they were lean!Please don’t give up on your vegan diet though, stick with me – I will give you hope!Some people are really upset about how processed this food (vegan proteins) is.

#36 Crumbs of Contention: Exploring Keto Vegan Bread
Welcome to another episode of our podcast, where today we're diving into the world of homemade bread, specifically exploring the intriguing combination of keto and vegan baking. Is it worth the effort? Well, let's find out. In this episode, we embark on a journey to craft two different types of bread rolls: one straightforward and the other a tad more complex. However, as our adventure unfolds, it becomes apparent that these creations might not live up to the expectations of traditional bread enthusiasts. The first batch falls short, with a texture and taste that leave much to be desired. Despite diligently following the recipe, there are moments of doubt as the dough doesn't quite behave as expected. Yet, undeterred, we press on. With the second batch, there's a glimmer of hope. The larger rolls show promise, offering a better texture and flavour profile. However, it's clear that these keto vegan alternatives still fall short of replicating the beloved bread we reminisce about from our carb-eating days. So, join us as we navigate the highs and lows of homemade breadmaking, pondering the “age-old” question: is keto vegan bread worth it? Best Moments: Second 6 rolls were better – no way near the same as bread bread. You’ve got to be desperate to want these!They are curdling a little bit!I’m not doing the Rachel type thing and chucking stuff in – I’m following the recipe!Not what I was hoping for!Here’s the dollop of dough from the second onesI’m going to assume they’re not going to rise that muchThe second bread rolls, the bigger ones, were much nicer than the first ones.If you’re hoping to have keto vegan bread and it taste like the bread you remember from those days that you used to eat carbs - seriously disappointed!   Ingredients The most disappointing bread rolls: Egg replacement – Orgran No Egg, Egg Replacer 3 egg whites, 1 egg converts 2 tsp of egg replacer and 5 tbs water.25g almond flour30g coconut flour1tbs psyllium husk1sp baking powderSesame seedssalt60ml hot water.

#35 Embrace & Empower: Breaking Free from Judgement
In this episode of the Keto Vegan, we delve into a transformative journey centred around the mantra: "Don't Judge." In this episode, we explore the profound notion that everyone is doing the best they can with what they have.  Rachel shares a personal journey of sudden transformation towards plant-based living and veganism, highlighting the challenges faced in understanding and embracing those who may not yet grasp this lifestyle choice. Through introspection and growth, it becomes clear that forcing change upon others only breeds resistance. True change must come from within. We’re reminded to be patient, kind and loving, both to ourselves and others. By releasing the shackles of self-judgment, we unlock the capacity to see beyond surface differences and connect on a deeper level. Through insightful breathing exercises and reflective questions, we learn to embrace ourselves fully, quirks and all. Moreover, the podcast delves into the importance of navigating relationships with those we may not naturally click with, emphasizing the value of kindness, respect, and inclusivity. Each individual has the right to be treated with compassion and empathy, regardless of differences in opinion or perspective. Join us as we embark on a journey of self-discovery, acceptance, and genuine connection. It's time to let go of judgment and embrace the beauty of diversity and understanding. Best Moments: Everyone is doing the best they can with what they have.My transformation to plant based and veganism was intense, I’ve had to learn a lot how to be kind to people who don’t get it yet.When people are forced to change their minds, they’re not going to.We have to find the way ourselves.Everybody is doing the best they can with what they’ve got.Most of us ate meat … until we got ready to change,Be patient, be kind, be loving.Stop judging yourself. When we stop judging ourself, something magical happens and we stop judging others. Key Takeaways Put your hand on your heart, close your eyes and say to yourself: what is it like to be me when I’m not judging myself?What is it like to be me when I don’t judge myself? Do this over and again for 10 to 15 minutes.

In today’s episode of The Keto Vegan Podcast, Rachel talks about carbs and intermittent fasting. She’ll be diving into the world of carbs, what they do to our bodies, how they fit into a keto diet and how many we can eat on a keto diet. She then talks about how to introduce intermittent fasting and what health benefits there are to this. Key Takeaways The keto diet is a low carb, high fat diet that aims to put your body into a state of ketosis.Your keto diet can be broken down into percentages of fat, protein and carbs. Carbs 5-10%; Protein 20-35%; Fat 60-75%When in ketosis your body burns fat instead of carbs for fuel.Fiber is a type of carb that your body cannot digest, so it does not affect your blood sugar or ketosis. Fiber also helps you feel full and supports your digestive health.Counting calories doesn’t work – our focus needs to be on metabolic fitness.The 5-1-1 method. Fast for 5 days 15-17 hours, fast for one day for 18 hours and take one day off Best Moments “With the keto diet your body stays in fat-burning mode.”“When you are choosing carbs on this diet, choose the ones that are high in fibre.”“Counting calories doesn’t work.”“There’s a great thing about being a fat burner… Our bodies are better designed to be fat burners.”“… insane mental clarity!” Valuable Resources For an extensive list of foods with their carb, fat and protein count, go here: https://www.rachelgtherapy.co.uk/1-what-why-and-how For a keto-vegan start-up menu and shopping list go here: https://www.rachelgtherapy.co.uk/1-what-why-and-how Host Bio Rachel, a once morbidly obese individual, experienced a remarkable body transformation through the keto diet.
