Vegetarian Zen

By Vickie Velasquez & Larissa Galenes

Vegetarian Zen was created out of our desire to offer a peaceful, nonjudgmental place to find information on vegetarianism, veganism, juicing, exercise, motivation and green living. On our website we feature tips, healthy recipes, product reviews and much more. The podcast gives us the opportunity to relate to our followers on a more personal level and discuss a variety of topics. We welcome input and feedback from our followers regarding issues you would like us to address as well as ways in which we can improve. Please don't hesitate to contact us and let us know how we can help. If you enjoy and find value in our podcast, we would very much appreciate a favorable review on iTunes. This would help us tremendously. Thanks, and we hope you enjoy Vegetarian Zen.
