[16:22] Lani’s experience with wildlife advocacy inspired her to stop eating dairy and transition to a vegan lifestyle. [18:34] Start where you can, and don’t worry about judgment from others. [19:32] How can we help people realize the harm that is being done by consumption of animal products? [27:23] What steps will you take on your journey to a mindful vegan lifestyle? [36:22] Exercise is probably more important for lifestyle change than you know. [37:44] You must become the master of your habits. [40:09] Lani’s books have different focuses but they all mention fitness, plant-based nutrition and mindfulness, because they go hand in hand. [41:27] Each phase that Lani has identified is crucial to the journey. [46:46] What are the biggest challenges for people attempting to transition to a vegan lifestyle? [48:22] Planning ahead can be very helpful in navigating social situations. [51:00] What is the difference between the terms “plant-based” and “vegan,” and which does Lani prefer?
