I already own or am interested in purchasing the book, The 30-Day Vegan Challenge. Is the content of the online program different from the book?
I want to avoid/am allergic to nuts, oil, soy, wheat, gluten, [fill-in-the-blank]. Will this Challenge accommodate my specific dietary needs?
I do not advocate one type of diet (gluten-free, soy-free, raw, fat-free, oil-free, nut-free, etc.) over another, but I am always conscious of people who fall into these categories. You’ll find that throughout my work – and this Challenge – I refer to various products that might fall into these categories, and in all of my recipes, I indicate whether they are wheat-free, soy-free, and oil-free.
Is the information in The 30-Day Vegan Challenge™ relevant to people who live outside of the United States?
Although specific foods and brands mentioned throughout the program may be different depending on where you live, all the general principles can be applied to anyone, anywhere. In addition, in The 30-Day Vegan Challenge book, all of the recipe ingredients are given in metric as well as imperial.
Will I be able to connect with other people taking The 30-Day Vegan Challenge™?
Yes! Having a community of like-minded people is vital to remaining a joyful vegan. Everyone who has purchased the 30-Day Vegan Challenge™ has the option of joining our private online group so you can interact with others, ask questions, share recipes, and even find people in your area also taking the Challenge.
What happens at the end of The 30-Day Vegan Challenge™? Is there still a way to receive your help and guidance?
Indeed! There are several options, and you don’t have to wait until the Challenge is over!
You can book time with me for a one-on-one conversation / consultation.
You can book a private cooking class with me.
You can join me on an all-inclusive vegan trip!
You can become part of my patreon community and enjoy perks. Become a patron today.
Also, my podcast, Food for Thought, is a way to get more inspiration and information before, after, and during The 30-Day Vegan Challenge. It’s completely free, available wherever you listen to podcasts or on my website.
How long will I have access to the information I’m purchasing?
Where else can I buy your books?
My books are available everywhere books are sold — from small independent stores to chains. Signed copies are available through my website, which supports me directly, but all of my books are also available at the large booksellers online and offline. Some are also available as an eBook. And don’t hesitate to ask your local bookstore to carry any of her books if you don’t see them on the shelves.
I’ve been receiving each day’s email, then today none came. What gives?
To prevent the emails from going to your spam folder, add the email address email@example.com to your list of safe senders. In most email clients, adding our address to your address book/safe senders list will do the trick.

"Thank you for this well-planned 30-Day Challenge...worth every penny! You are so thorough in delivering useful information each day. I look forward to reading and listening to each daily email. Had no idea becoming vegan would be so easy!"
"I'm enjoying the 30-Day Vegan Challenge program so much! Thank you for bringing this program to us. I had been trying to make the transition on my own the last few months, but with your coaching and information, I am confident that I can do it!"
"If the rest of the 30 days (... er, 29) are as WONDERFUL as today, I am in for a treat. Wow. Thank you. The first podcast was phenomenal. I am looking forward to this "challenge”! Thank you for all of your hard work." ~Rachel Smith
I am really enjoying the multimedia aspect of the course. I enjoy listening to the
podcasts while I'm prepping or cooking food. I save all the handouts, and the cooking videos are like getting private lessons from Colleen herself! I recommend this course to everyone, and I wish it had been available when I started my vegan journey.
Changing to a vegan diet has not only positively changed my physical self, but also I feel more at peace with my conscience and soul. Knowing that other living beings won't suffer because of my eating is a satisfaction that no one can take away. Thanks for this wonderful program!
Colleen – you are a true inspiration. My husband and I transitioned to being vegan in our mid-40s, with your help, and against heavy family resistance. We have been proudly vegan for 1-1/2 years and you continue to be a great resource for us. Thank you for all you do.
Hi Colleen! Thank you so much for your incredible support. You are so knowledgeable and inspiring. I hope to one day be able to communicate as clearly, proudly, respectfully and joyfully as you. I will continue to search your resources and follow your example. Danielle
I just needed this little push to become a vegan! Being a vegetarian for 3 years, I had some nutritional concerns, but all your support and great advice helped me finally switch to a healthy and more compassionate way of living. Thank you! Carolina
I like that you address specific issues or problems, for example how to deal with your family if you're the only vegan in the household. I took the challenge to see if I could recommend it to people who weren't vegan yet. I learned a lot and have recommended it to several people.
Addressing the culinary, social, ethical, and practical aspects of living vegan, my mission is to provide the tools and resources you need to live according to your own values of compassion and wellness — joyfully, healthfully, and deliciously. I'm the proud author of several bestselling books, the creator of the orginal 30-Day Vegan Challenge, and the host of the award-winning podcast Food for Thought, now in its 16th year.
