What people are saying about Chronic Planet:
When I first decided to become a vegetarian, I didn’t realize how much my lifestyle would change, in addition to my diet. While cutting animal protein out of my diet, which is arguably hard enough, I found that I had to defend my plant-based eating habits to an assortment of naysayers; friends, family, strangers… everyone seemed to have an opinion on meat consumption, or more accurately, an opinion on my decision to no longer consume meat. There have been a couple of times when the people I was with seemed generally offended that I wasn’t taking my place ‘at the top of the food chain.’ The peer pressure against being a vegetarian is much more prevalent than non-vegetarians might think.
This is why I’m so grateful for Chronic Planet and for the one-on-one counseling with Lauren. Not only did I learn the basics about plant-based living, like meal planning and grocery shopping, I also came away with an arsenal of facts and resources that gave me the self-confidence to be able to intelligently explain why I have chosen a plant-based diet to those who might not understand or agree with it.
Lauren helped me successfully transition to a vegetarian lifestyle by providing the support and education that I needed to stick to my new diet. I feel happier, healthier and am a much better cook than I ever was when I cooked and ate meat. I might never become a full vegan, and that’s quite alright at Chronic Planet. By working with Lauren, we were able to use my food preferences to create a custom road map, that still includes cheese and eggs, for my plant-based lifestyle and because I helped come up with it, I know that I won’t have any trouble sticking with it.
To Lauren and Chronic Planet, Thank You! Your coaching has taught me the benefits of plant-based eating for both my health and the health of the environment, and your support has made it possible for me to make a lasting lifestyle change in support of plant-based nutrition. Also, your meal recommendations are delicious! I am anxiously awaiting a Chronic Planet cookbook #goveg
To Anyone looking for help making the transition to a plant-based lifestyle, I highly recommend Chronic Planet’s Plant-Powered Badassery program. You won’t believe how much you can gain by giving up meat.
After following Lauren’s “Chronic Planet” Facebook page, and reading almost every article shared, I decided I wanted to change my life. I realized I didn’t want to be a part of a market that doesn’t care about animal welfare, or the environment, helped excite my motivation for change. Choosing to live a plant based lifestyle has been exciting, flavorful, and left me feeling guilt and bloat free- yay!
Lauren asked me to think of the “big picture” reasons for my switch to veganism, which helped me stay committed during the times I craved meat or other animal products. She taught me how to effectively meal plan (thank goodness!), provided me with a plethora of resources, and was so supportive the whole time. Our weekly video chats were productive, educational, and fun. I am two months into my plant based life and I truly can’t imagine going back!
