"I sometimes wonder what would have happened had my father not insisted on teaching me to read and write in Korean. What would have happened if I hadn't gone vegan, started The Korean Vegan, begun peeling back the layers of my family's history?   Where would I be if I'd kept those stories to myself?   I rattle the chain between my hands.

Finding Jeju.

Finding Jeju.

2024-06-2534:25

"It was daytime, so there were no stars or moon for me to collect, but I took something of Jeju into my heart that day, some secret that Hallas imparted to me with as much slyness as a young girl fluttering away from home to meet her lover at twilight, a secret I could only begin to feel the shape of, even without knowing its name."   The Korean Vegan Vegan Podcast returns with stories from Joanne's recent family trip to South Korea's Jeju Island.   Visit the episode page on The Korean Vegan website for photos from Jeju, a Comprehensive Guide to Traveling Vegan in Korea, a written version of this podcast, and more.   Connect with Joanne The Korean Vegan Website The Korean Vegan Kollective The Korean Vegan Cookbook My Amazon Storefront YouTube Instagram Facebook TikTok

“My knees began to smart and I started to feel “something” in my right hip-flexor–something that reminded me of those cartoons where Elmer Fudd tries to drive a car that literally falls apart with the wheels rolling away and the engine banging out with a “poof.”   Joanne recaps her awesome NYC Marathon experience, complete with the weekend nutrition that fueled her race: boiled potatoes, NYC bagels, pizza, ramyeon, and her favorite NYC restaurant.

The Power of Words.

The Power of Words.

2023-10-2429:03

"As my brother learned the hard way when he once used the word 'negligee' instead of 'negligent,' it's probably a good idea to know exactly what a word means before you use it."   In this week’s episode, Joanne takes a deep dive into the meaning and etymology of words that might require some clarity, at least as they relate to the ongoing turmoil in the Middle East.   Foreign Terrorist Organizations and State Sponsors of Terrorism (as designated by the Secretary of State)   Join Joanne’s Live Interactive Cooking Class this Sunday, October 29, on The Korean Vegan Kollective.   Connect with Joanne The Korean Vegan Website The Korean Vegan Kollective The Korean Vegan Cookbook My Amazon Storefront YouTube Instagram Facebook TikTok
In this episode, Joanne sits down with two men (Sam Livits, COO of Blogilates / Popflex; and her husband Anthony, GM of The Korean Vegan) to talk about how they've found themselves behind the women who've launched themselves into public facing careers and helmed the prows of their own businesses.   Connect with Sam Livits Instagram Linkedin   Connect with Anthony Molinaro Instagram Website Linkedin   Connect with Joanne The Korean Vegan Website The Korean Vegan Kollective The Korean Vegan Cookbook My Amazon Storefront YouTube Instagram Facebook TikTok
Loneliness.

Loneliness.

2023-10-0317:031

"[Loneliness] is associated with a greater risk of cardiovascular disease, dementia, stroke, depression, anxiety, and premature death. The mortality impact of being socially disconnected is similar to that caused by smoking up to 15 cigarettes a day, and even greater than that associated with obesity and physical inactivity." -​U.S. Surgeon General's Advisory (2023)​.   This week, Joanne tackles the subject of loneliness and wonders whether she can "fake out" the nation's current epidemic in the same way she tried to outsmart her imposter syndrome.   Visit the episode page on The Korean Vegan website for more on the epidemic of loneliness, including pictures and links. Plus, this week's Recipe Inspo, and "What I'm...

"You need to create a 'Joanne 2.0,' a Joanne that pretends that she knows she deserves to be there as much as everyone else."   I imagined donning the guise of a totally "new" Joanne--one who was confident, made people laugh, strode into rooms with her shoulders back and her gaze straight. Only, it wouldn't really be a "new" me so much as a "fake" me, like a character in a sitcom.   While looking to trick herself out of her own Imposter Syndrome during a recent trip to NYC, Joanne discovers the true meaning of confidence.    Visit the episode page on The Korean Vegan website for more on "Faking Out Imposter Syndrome," including pictures and links. Plus, a Korean Street Food recipe, and a feature in The New York Times in "What I'm (Watching, Reading, Wearing)."   Connect with Joanne The Korean Vegan Website The Korean Vegan Kollective The Korean Vegan Cookbook My Amazon Storefront YouTube Instagram Facebook TikTok
Meet Cassey Ho, the founder and creator of not one, but two powerhouse fitness brands: Blogilates and PopFlex, both of which were born out of Cassey’s stint as a certified pilates instructor back in the late 2000s. Discover how what started out as a way to pay the bills, soon turned into a community numbering in the tens of millions, and now, two 8 figure businesses.   Cassey was born a leader, but the thing I love about her is that she completely upends the stereotype that often adheres to women in a position of power. That we must be unapproachable, aloof, even a bit of a bully, and that it is a business no-no to wear our hearts on our sleeves. This was definitely the message I received—explicitly and implicitly—when I was trying to make partner at the Firm. But Cassey doesn’t buy into that—at all. She is openly emotional, about the triumphs and the losses, and she has leaned into that quality without a trace of artifice. In so doing, she has proven that success does NOT require you to be who you aren’t. Success will follow those who lead, even with their hearts. - Joanne   Enter the Popflex giveaway!   Connect with Cassey: Blogilates Website Popflex Website YouTube Instagram TikTok   Connect with Joanne The Korean Vegan Website The Korean Vegan Kollective The Korean Vegan Cookbook My Amazon Storefront YouTube Instagram Facebook TikTok
"Family scholars should be less interested in defining what a family is and more focused on what families do . . . ."   Joanne reflects on last week's conversation with Dr. Robynne Chutkan and investigates one of the primary drivers of optimism, happiness, empowerment, and control: family.   Visit the episode page on The Korean Vegan website for more on today's topic, including pictures and links. Plus, an Heirloom Tomato Galette recipe, and "What I'm...

Meet Dr. Robynne Chutkan, one of the country’s most recognizable gastroenterologists and the veritable Queen of Gut! The author of four books on the microbiome (including my personal favorite--The Microbiome Solution), Dr. Chutkan is a graduate of Yale and Columbia College, has served on the faculty at Georgetown Hospital since 1997, and was once short-listed as a candidate for the U.S. Surgeon General's office. Dr Chutkan’s philosophy is based on uncovering and remediating the root cause of digestive distress, which is often the result of damage to the microbiome from excessive antibiotics, acid blockers, immunosuppressive drugs, and a suboptimal diet. Her work has had an immense impact on my life and it's an absolute thrill to share this highly informative conversation with all of you.    Enter to win a copy of Dr. Chutkan's The Microbiome Solution and The Anti-Viral Gut.

"You tell yourself that tomorrow, or on Monday, or after the guests staying at your house leave, you will resume all those healthy habits that you thought you couldn't live without; but tomorrow, Monday, and your family's departure are no longer visible in the rearview mirror, and still, your blender remains forlorn, your kale now yellow, the cover of that little brown notebook untouched."   If you've ever found yourself in a slump, today's episode is for you! Joanne discusses getting back on track while establishing (or re-establishing) good habits. Plus, "Parting Thoughts."   Book Signing Info & Tickets (Pygmalion 2023)    Connect with Joanne The Korean Vegan Website The Korean Vegan Kollective The Korean Vegan Cookbook My Amazon Storefront YouTube Instagram Facebook TikTok

Thank you so much for sharing a written version. I have learnt so much English from your YouTube content. Transcripts of podcasts and captions of videos help me alot. The beautiful way you speak continues to inspire me to learning and speaking more English. And I can't tell how much your insights blow my mind. I wish more Joanne Molinaros on Earth :)) Great love and respect from Iran ❤️🌹
