Show Notes

Welcome to The Wellbeing Room!

Brigitte Gemme is Chief Meal Planner at the Vegan Family Kitchen. As a vegan food educator, she is dedicated to helping more people eat more plants. Born on a farm, and trained in sociology, she understands how eating meat and other animal products became such strongly held habits, to the point of trashing both our planet and our health. Brigitte uses her understanding of nutrition, her knowledge of behavior change, and her coaching skills to fight climate change and chronic disease one dinner at a time. She holds a PhD from the University of British Columbia and a certificate in plant-based nutrition from the University of Winchester.

In this interview, Brigitte shares:

  • what led her to change career paths and do the work that she does today 
  • the environmental and ethical considerations that led her to eating a plant-based diet 
  • why she's committed to educate and support others in eating a plant-based diet
  • the five basic recipes that we can use as a basis for making satisfying and healthy meals
  • the key barriers people face when it comes to cooking and eating healthy plant based food 
  • her favourite food/recipe at the moment
  • one key thing that has helped her improve wellness and get more out of life.
