It's easy to hate on New Year's resolutions. After all, they almost always fail.

Each year, one of my favorite episodes is the Holiday Extravaganza, so this year, we decided to get started a little early with a sneak peek at the official NMA gift guide (plus a few fitness lessons from 2018).
Let's take a little walk down memory lane and explore the history of No Meat Athlete and how it -- and the community -- has changed over the years.

You've probably seen the recent headlines like, "No Amount of Alcohol is Safe" or "Why Any Levels of Alcohol is Bad for You."
They've been popping up a lot recently, in part because it's a drastic shift from the conventional thinking that a small amount of wine each day could actually be good for you.

Sometimes, no matter how much you want a habit to work, it just doesn't. You can't get it to stick.
Does that mean you should just give up and quit trying all together?
What do you do when you're at a wedding with little for vegans to eat? You spend the weekend eating simply. Here's how it turned out for Doug, and what he took away from the experience.

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.
