There is a growing number of people that believe the future of the human race relies on humans changing to a vegan diet, but is it the cure we need?

Join Ronsley Vaz as he talks with some of the most forward-thinking entrepreneurs, chefs, food experts and health conscious people around the world. He picks their brain about doing what they love, navigating the challenges and anxieties of a self-made business and how to think outside the box.

If you’ve ever wanted to start your own business or are interested in knowing more about healthy choices with food this podcast is for you.

On today’s episode of Bond Appetit we revisit our conversation with Valierie Groth. Valerie is a Life and Career Coach that has made the move from safe decisions to making uncomfortable choices. She has an amazing story of personal development and the rollercoaster ride that she has been on.

She definitely does the cool stuff. She has run multiple marathons, went to graduate school twice, started her own business and her own podcast. She is on this show more importantly for her shift in switching to a plant based diet that focuses on mindfulness and gratitude.

Val talks about how her mindset shifted when she ran her first marathon. 

  • Why avoiding meat, fast food and processed foods is key for a healthy life
  • The amazing world of meat substitutes
  • How to incorporate beans and tofu into your diet
  • Why lots of greens – especially kale and spinach is an excellent approach to a good diet
  • What food Val says ”this takes like my childhood”
  • Her mum’s chicken and rice and steak and lobsters were her childhood favourites.

  • Why fresh food from the store is the best starting point for great cooking
  • How meal prep over the weekend can save you time and money
