PTP350 Carleigh Bodrug Pandemic
In: Podcast0

In this episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk with Carleigh Bodrug about how to manage your plant-based kitchen during harsh times like a pandemic. While this information can be used during regular life, we made it even more useful for what is happening in the world right now. People have more time on their hands, the grocery stores have product shortages due to hoarding and there is uncertainty about our access to fresh food moving forward or even access to grocery stores. We are confident you will feel ready to take on the kitchen and start cooking and freezing once you’re done listening to this episode. Or better yet, head to the kitchen now and make a big batch of vegan chili while you listen and you’ll know exactly how to freeze it once we are done.

Carleigh Bodrug is the founder of Plant You, a whole-food, plant-based online community, digital meal planner and food blog with a fan base of over 350,000 social media followers. Carleigh holds a BA in Journalism and Media Studies through Western University and Fanshawe College, is a Registered Holistic Health Coach, and a graduate of the Plant-Based Certificate Program by Nutrition Studies and Cornell University.
