How does a classically trained French chef turn into one of the most popular vegan recipe developers on Facebook?
Ask Jean-Philippe Cyr, The Buddhist Chef. He’s made a name for himself not by whipping up thousands of mediocre recipes, but by creating carefully crafted, reliable meals, and doing so in a mindful way.
We frequently share Jean-Philippe’s recipes in the Academy newsletter, so when we had the chance to bring him on the podcast to discuss his food philosophy, it was a no-brainer.
In today’s episode, Jean-Philippe Cyr shares his take on maximizing flavors, mindfulness, and why it’s important to keep recipes simple in order to grow this community.

Yoga's popularity has boomed over the past several years, but for many, it's still too intimidating to actually try.
In today's episode, Doug chats with his wife Katie, a certified Yoga Therapist and 500-hour Registered Yoga Teacher, about how yoga can transform your life and how to get started.
Doug asks the many questions he had before his first class, and Katie shares how yoga can be a transformative and healing practice for all athletes.
What's it like to run a mountainous 100-mile ultramarathon? How about one that takes you 33 hours to complete?

Life... it's stressful.
Work, kids, school, training, dishes, they all pile up draining you of energy and time, until suddenly, you no longer have any free-time to yourself.
Now, there are a lot of productivity gurus and self-help personalities pushing life-hacks and cheats to save 15 minutes here or free up a little time there, but rarely do they solve any of the lasting struggles overwhelming your day.
Jeff Sanders, a good friend of NMA, has a different approach.
You may remember Jeff from previous episodes of the podcast. He's the host of the 5AM Miracle, and has helped both Matt and I work on creating more productive, healthier morning routines.
Today we're bringing him back on, not to focus on mornings, but instead to help us understand how to identify and uproot the real causes of the procrastination and stress in our lives, and how to free up time to do what we love.
And to do that through the functional, real-life strategies -- not hacks -- outlined in his new book, The Free-Time Formula.

That ultramarathon goal might just be closer than you think!
Runners, new and experienced, have all heard certain "rules." Hard and fast advice on how to train, recover, and experience the sport.
But we here at NMA Radio don't think all of those rules are beneficial. In today's episode we call out some of the running advice we've all heard (maybe even shared), and flip it on it's head.
People talk a lot about making sure you get all the nutrients you need on a plant-based diet, but what if we're looking at it all wrong? What if the bigger concern for everyone, not just vegans, is overnutrition?
