Colleen Patrick-Goudreau on ARZone

Postby Sunkanrags » Wed Jun 22, 2011 2:30 pm

ARZone is pleased to announce this week’s Live Guest Chat.

For 11 years, Colleen Patrick-Goudreau has guided people to becoming and staying vegan through cooking classes, award-winning cookbooks, lectures, and her popular video and audio podcasts. With passion, humour, and common sense, she empowers and inspires people to live as healthfully and compassionately as possible.

Raised on a typical American diet of meat, dairy, and eggs, Colleen was shocked by what she learned when she read John Robbins' Diet for a New America at 19. No longer able to justify eating mammals, Colleen began a journey of discovery that continues to this day. Eventually she included fishes in her circle of compassion, and after reading Slaughterhouse, it became clear to her that no animal raised for human consumption - whether for their flesh, milk, or eggs - escapes the horrors and cruelties of slaughter.

Addressing the spiritual, social, and practical aspects of a vegan lifestyle, Colleen is the author of three cookbooks (The Joy of Vegan Baking,The Vegan Table, and Color Me Vegan) and two vegan/compassionate living books (Vegan's Daily Companion, which just came out in March 2011, and The 30-Day Vegan Challenge, due out in August 2011).

Determined to raise awareness about animal suffering, she founded Compassionate Cooks to be a voice for the over 45 billion land and sea animals killed every year in the U.S. for human consumption. Her work is dedicated to them.

Colleen also produces a podcast called Vegetarian Food for Thought and produced a cooking DVD, Vegetarian Cooking with Compassionate Cooks.

Colleen welcomes the opportunity to engage ARZone members on a range of topics, from her amazing cookbooks, her excellent podcasts and blogs to her extensive advocacy and more.

This is an event for which questions must be submitted to ARZone prior to Midnight GMT, Wednesday 22 June via email to
