HHH030 Lauren Toyota | Hot for Food

I got to speak with Lauren Toyota of Hot for Food about her new (first!) cookbook Vegan Comfort Classics and the creative benefits of writing it; becoming vegetarian as a kid; her previous career as a VJ; and the universe. We go into manifestation and visualization and the pros and cons of specific or general goals. And Lauren kind of gives me a little pep talk. Then we talk food! Lauren shares her favorite ingredients for vegan cooking, snack ideas and the one grain she doesn’t like.

Vegan Comfort Classics is on pre-sale starting today (release date February 2018) through Amazon and any other online book sellers. Buying books on pre-sale is one of the best things you can do to help the authors!
