Choosing Compassion | Chef Derek Sarno

Listen Now

In Episode #15 of The Proof podcast, I spoke with plant-based chef Derek Sarno about his journey to choosing a life of compassion. Derek Sarno is one of the world’s best-known plant-based chefs. One half of the Wicked Healthy team, Derek heads up plant-based product innovation for British grocery giant Tesco. While visiting London, I caught up with Derek and saw firsthand how much love and energy he puts into the food that he creates – just take one look at his Instagram and you will see what I mean! This guy is seriously creative, seriously compassionate, and seriously switched on when it comes to changing the landscape of healthy grocery food.

In this episode, we discussed Derek’s story, from his early years and his diet as a child to becoming a chef and his role at Tesco. Listen to discover how Derek found his way out of grief and substance abuse to adopt a plant-based lifestyle defined by compassion.
