- 264: Bhu Foods: Nurturing Spirituality and Veganism in Business Kathleen Gage 39:51
Laura Katleman, Founder of Bhur Foods, shares her journey from being a vegetarian for many years to becoming a vegan. She describes how her eating habits evolved over time, starting from giving up beef, then chicken, seafood, and finally all animal products.
