From mid-pack runners to professional triathletes, we've had the opportunity to share a lot of stories and advice from vegan athletes on this podcast. But today's interview is a first.
I'm excited to share my conversation with vegan midfielder for the LA Galaxy, Baggio Husidic, about his diet, training, and how going plant-based is making him a better athlete.
It was traumatic. It was uncomfortable, painful, and frightening, and Matt loves to bring it up. Alright fine, maybe (now that's it's over) it's also a little funny.
Of course I'm talking about the groin story we've vaguely teased over the past month. Matt has finally convinced me is worth sharing on this podcast.
But while the story might start with the groin -- or actually a 50k ultramarathon -- it's about much more than that. The real story is about mindfulness, letting go of pain and discomfort, and how to handle an injury that leaves you unable to run.
That's the part of this dreaded, embarrassing story we want to share with you today.
Today we're excited to host Michael Greger, MD, the man behind NutrtionFacts.org and the author of the new book How Not to Die.
Michael's electrifying personality and scientific background attract a lot of attention, and we're happy to pick his brain on many of the big topics vegan athletes are most interested in.
You know winter has officially arrived when you contemplate skipping a run all together because you can't find your running tights.
That's what happened to me last week, and I have a feeling I wasn't the only one restlessly digging through a closet having that same internal conversation.
In today's episode, Matt and I share a survival guides of sorts on how to get through the cold winter months. We tackle everything from running through winter, indoor exercise for those that don't want to brave the elements, the foods and drinks we turn to, and using winter to set the stage for the coming year.
When I tell people that my wife and I are vegan, one of there first questions (after the whole protein question) is, "What about your kids?"
Of course my answer is yes ... for the most part.
In today's episode, we bring on Karen Ranzi, author of Creating Healthy Children, about this topic, and how she recommends raising your kids to eat healthy and love it.
