Jasmin Singer, the Podcaster Who Interviewed More than 1000 Vegans

The vegan author Jordi Casamitjana interviews fellow vegan author and podcaster Jasmin Singer, co-host of the very popular US podcast, Our Hen House.

Most of my friends are vegan.

That is what happens when you have been vegan for decades. But also, when you are privileged enough to live in one of the most vegan-friendly cities in the world (London) and be a resident of one of the most vegan-friendly countries there are (the UK). Even more when you have worked in one of the most vegan-friendly sectors in existence (animal protection). And as I live in a fully vegan household (with my tiny veganic orchard) and now work from home, I think it would be fair to say that I spend most of my time in a comfortable vegan bubble where I do not have to constantly explain to others why I do not eat eggs or wear leather.

How bovine emissions — aka cow belches — are contributing to climate change

While Americans’ reliance on fossil-fuel-powered vehicles is a well-known cause of harmful greenhouse gas emissions — which cause climate change by trapping heat in the atmosphere — there’s another major culprit that often gets overlooked: bovine emissions, aka cow belches, which emit methane, a substance that’s substantially more powerful than carbon dioxide when it comes to causing the greenhouse effect.

Veganism, Sex and Politics

Reading/writing food and shame: Always Too Much and Never Enough by Jasmin Singer

Our relationships to sex and food are — as Singer indeed reflects elsewhere in her book — intimately entwined. There is also stuff here about sex — some of it painful and shameful, much of it full of the pleasures of discovery. But mostly this is a book about the pleasures and shame of food: about Singer’s love and desire for it, the shame she often feels as a result of this relationship, and the deep shame she grows to feel about her big body in a sexist, fatphobic world.

Surviving the Holidays As a Vegan or Vegetarian

Holidays as a vegan or vegetarian can sometimes be tough. Although any great holiday recipe can be made without animal products, our families might refuse to make adjustments or, even worse, be openly antagonistic about our decision not to eat animals. If you’re vegan or vegetarian for ethical reasons or one of the 215 million Americans trying to cut back on meat, it can also be emotionally difficult to watch your family celebrate life over a meal that you know was created out of just the opposite.

Utah Public Radio: “Always Too Much & Never Enough” By Jasmin Singer On Wednesday’s Access Utah

Utah Public RadioFrom the extra pounds and unrelenting bullies that left her eating lunch alone in a bathroom stall at school to the low self-esteem that left her both physically and emotionally vulnerable to abuse, Jasmin Singer’s struggle with weight defined her life. Singer says that most people think there’s no such thing as a fat vegan, but most people don’t realize that deep-fried tofu tastes amazing and that Oreos are, in fact, vegan. So, even after she embraced a vegan lifestyle, having discovered her passion in advocating for the rights of animals, she defied any “skinny vegan” stereotypes by getting even heavier. Read more…

Metro NY (Print Edition): How a junk food vegan fought food addiction and won

Metro NYIt wasn’t until activist Jasmin Singer’s life was in jeopardy and she was forced to change her eating habits that she discovered who she really was. When activist Jasmin Singer became a vegan when she was 24, it wasn’t because she was joining a trendy food-craze, like going gluten-free or giving up carbs. To her, it was a stand against the way animals were treated, solely for human consumption. “I consider eating a deeply personal, political act,” she says. “For me, veganism was an extension of my worldview, not my personal preference.” Read more…

Starred Review: Always Too Much and Never Enough: A Memoir

Shelf AwarenessAlthough Jasmin Singer says her journey toward health and self-actualization “started with juice,” it is the wisdom of her grandmother that suffuses and illuminates each page of this memoir: “You are exactly where you should be.” From the earliest scenes describing her parents’ divorce and revolving step-parents–when food became the one constant Singer could control–to a painful moment in a San Francisco bathroom stall avoiding her own reflection in the mirror, she is unflinchingly forthright and refreshingly authentic… A testament to how the greatest transformations are often intangible.

Through Always Too Much, lesbian author hopes to help others

Bay Area Reporter“I grew up as a bullied, fat kid,” Singer, who lives in New York City, said in an email interview. But after she started examining how the agriculture industry works, “and how profoundly my addictive relationship with food was affecting my life,” she lost almost 100 pounds by doing monthly juice fasts and eating only whole, unprocessed foods. She then “gained a fuller understanding of certain truths I had not previously fully embraced. Truths about me, such as my sexuality. And truths about the world, such as how much suffering – to animals, to people, to myself – was caused by what was on my plate.” Read more…

Book Review: Always Too Much and Never Enough – A Memoir

Vegan StreetIs there anything we have to do every day that is as emotionally rife as the act of feeding ourselves? Some people manage to get through life without there being a deep connection between emotions and food but for many, if not most, of us, food and how we feed ourselves is a rough terrain dotted with many, many landmines. For those of us with, as they say, “issues with food,” nothing is ever straightforward when it comes to eating: from the elation we feel when we’ve been virtuous with our diets to our plummeting self-worth when we are not, to the rollercoaster of guilt, anger, spitefulness, bliss, connection and even numbness we can feel on a daily basis with a fork or spoon as the vehicle for deliverance, food is a complicated and complex part of our everyday lives. Despite this, we have to learn to eat and feed ourselves if we want to stay alive. Read more…

I Broke Up with My BFF—Food—and Lost Over 80 Pounds

Women's HealthI always turned to food as a BFF or a therapist. I felt like it would fix everything. I ate rows and rows of Oreos instead of facing the real issues. I was totally disconnected from taking care of myself. In my 20s, I was trying to be an actress and a casting director told me I had to lose a bunch of weight. Because I wanted to impress her, I decided to join Weight Watchers with her. Of course I was doing it for her, not me. I wound up losing 25 pounds and weighed 150 pounds at 5’4″. Read more…

How I Lost Nearly 100 Pounds — After Struggling With Weight My Whole Life

Mind Body GreenIt was a particularly sunny summer day when my doctor told me that, at age 30 — even though I had been a vegan for many years at that point — I was on my way to heart disease. I sat on his table and hung my head in defeat. This doctor wasn’t the first one to tell me to lose weight. Twelve years earlier, during my first visit to a gynecologist, while my feet sat in stirrups and my legs splayed apart, my doctor decided it was the perfect moment to tell me that I was “too heavy for a girl my height” (as if I didn’t know). I nonchalantly agreed, all the while wondering how far the vending machine was from this room. Read more…
