NBSV 033: Deb Gleason on the cultural coma of food, and going from homicide detective to vegan coach

Vegan coach Deb Gleason

Deb Gleason is here to talk about what she calls the cultural coma of food that’s prevalent in our society, who we are if we’re not buying into this cultural coma, why veganism means letting go of the invisible agreement that oppression and violence are justified, how to make healthy and satiating vegan comfort food…and her previous career as a homicide detective.

Deb is a holistic nutritionist, vegan lifestyle coach, speaker and cookbook author living in Ottawa, Canada.

Listen below!

>> Letting go of the invisible agreement that oppression and violence are justified. Fear of social isolation is the glue that holds that agreement together.

>> Who are we, if we were not buying into the cultural coma around food.

>> Veganism as a rejection of violence and separation rather than a rejection of culinary abundance. Veganism is a deep connection to self, expressed through food choices.
