The Magic of Medicinal Mushrooms with Jeff Chilton - PTP277
<p>In this episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk with Jeff Chilton about the power of medicinal mushrooms. Well, we tell you, Jeff is a real fun-guy...all kidding aside, by the end of this podcast you will have a “shroom” of knowledge about this very medicinal type of plant. We hit the important stuff like what makes a reishi, cordyceps and Chaga mushroom so spectacular to how to make sure you are really getting your money’s worth and not duped by brand name supplement providers.</p> <p>Find out if mushrooms should be organic. What about that dirt that comes on it? How important is it to clean that off or is it a good source of vitamin B12? We’ll also answer the age-old question: Can you actually get Vitamin D from mushrooms. This is one trip...I mean episode you don’t want to miss. Share it with all your friends, plant-based, vegan or not because - holy shitake, this is interesting stuff.</p> <p>Jeff Chilton, raised in the Pacific Northwest, studied ethnomycology at the University of Washington in the late sixties and started working on a commercial mushroom farm in Washington in 1973. In the late seventies, he was a founder of Mycomedia, which held 4 mushroom conferences in the Pacific Northwest. These educational conferences brought together educators and experts in mushroom identification, ethnomycology, and mushroom cultivation.</p> <p>Jeff co-authored the highly acclaimed book, The Mushroom Cultivator, which was published in 1983. In the 1980’s he operated a mushroom spawn business and in 1989 he started Nammex, a business that introduced medicinal mushrooms to the US nutritional supplement industry. In 1997 he organized the first organic mushroom production seminar in China. Jeff’s company, Nammex was the first to offer a complete line of Certified Organic mushroom extracts to the US nutritional supplement industry. Nammex extracts are used by many supplement companies and are noted for their high quality based on scientific analysis of the active compounds.</p> <h4><strong>In this episode we discuss:</strong></h4> <ul> <li>Nammex</li> <li>An affinity for mushrooms</li> <li>Foraging</li> <li>Grocery store mushrooms</li> <li>Portobello mushrooms</li> <li>Beta-glucan</li> <li>Vit D</li> <li>Organics</li> <li>Quality of mushroom supplements  </li> <li>How to determine if your supplement is really mushroom</li> <li>Cordyceps, Chaga, Reishi</li> </ul> <h4><strong>Links to things we mentioned:</strong></h4> <p><a href="https://calendly.com/planttrainers/15min" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Work with us</a> – grab a free call today!</p> <p>Our <a href= "https://www.planttrainers.com/product/propelled-plants-performance-tee/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">awesome t-shirts</a></p> <p>Jeff Chilton - <a href="http://www.nammex.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Nammex</a></p> <p><a href="http://www.realmushrooms.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Real Mushrooms</a></p> <p>Visit <a href="http://www.foursigmatic.com/planttrainers" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">www.foursigmatic.com/planttrainers</a> and enter the promo code “<em>planttrainers</em>” for 10% off on your order!</p> <h4 style="text-align: center;">Thank you to this month’s Patrons for supporting us on <a href= "https://www.patreon.com/planttrainers" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Patreon</a>:</h4> <p style="text-align: center;">“Joe”</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Millie Pearson</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Mary Lou Fusi</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Carmen Fanous</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Emily Iaconelli</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Spanish Armada</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Michele Olender</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><a href= "https://www.patreon.com/planttrainers" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer"><img class="aligncenter wp-image-6518" title= "We appreciate your support!" src= "http://planttrainers.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/Patron-Support-Footer@2x.png" alt="Support Us Today!" width="500" height="185" /></a><br /> <em>Don’t forget to contact us at <a href= "mailto:info@planttrainers.com">info@planttrainers.com</a></em><em> with your question for our Plant Trainers Facebook Lives!</em></p> <p> </p> <p style="text-align: center;">We hope you enjoyed this podcast!

Home Remedies For This Flu Season with Julie Ward - PTP276
<p>In this episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk to Julie Ward about how to be winning this cold and flu season. Let’s face it there are two kinds of sick days from work, the ones that you are flat on your face and the ones you pretend to be sick to just take the day off. Wouldn't it be great if you only need to worry about the latter? We are not suggesting you lie to your work, but with these cold and flu season toolbox ideas you’re sure to skip the red nose, running eyes, flemmy cough this season, and if it does sneak up on you...don’t worry. Julie shares plenty of plant-based and vegan remedies. In fact, I was sipping on one as I wrote this introduction.</p> <p>So share away, because no one wants to use their sick days for really being sick. And be sure to tag us on Instagram @planttrainers when you do play hookey!</p> <p>Julie helps others transition to health using a new approach to food and “habit hacks” that help her clients overcome obstacles. As the founder of Fresh Food Alchemy, Julie’s presentations focus on how foods can boost energy, joy and focus. After overcoming her own depression, mood and digestive issues using plant-based wisdom, she brings 25 years of first-hand experience to the table, helping health educators and clients understand that optimal health is possible, and healthy food can taste great! Julie is a plant-based certified ACE health coach with a certificate in Plant-Based Nutrition. She loves creating new ways to make “healthy” tasty, fun and healing!</p> <h4><strong>In this episode we discuss:</strong></h4> <ul> <li>Mindset</li> <li>Major causes of cold and flu season</li> <li>Staying protected during cold a flu season</li> <li>Keeping your immune system up</li> <li>Garlic</li> <li>Medication</li> <li>patience</li> <li>Home remedies for cold and flu</li> <li>Tea and broth recipes</li> <li>Essential herbs and spices for cold</li> <li>Scrapes and burns</li> <li>Source your ingredients well</li> </ul> <h4><strong>Links to things we mentioned:</strong></h4> <p><a href= "https://www.planttrainers.com/product/meal-planning-mastery/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Meal Planning Mastery</a></p> <p><a href= "https://www.planttrainers.com/product/asea-via-lifemax/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">VIA LifeMax</a></p> <p>Julie Ward - <a href="https://www.freshfoodalchemy.com/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Website</a>, <a href= "https://www.instagram.com/freshfoodalchemy/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Instagram</a>, <a href= "https://www.facebook.com/freshfoodalchemy/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Facebook</a>, <a href= "https://twitter.com/PlantBAlchemy" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Twitter</a></p> <p>Julie's <a href="https://www.freshfoodalchemy.com/podcast" target="_blank" rel="noopener">special offer</a> for our podcast listeners</p> <p><a href= "https://www.planttrainers.com/natural-anti-inflammatory-shot/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Natural Anti-Inflammatory Shot</a></p> <h4 style="text-align: center;">Thank you to this month’s Patrons for supporting us on <a href= "https://www.patreon.com/planttrainers" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Patreon</a>:</h4> <p style="text-align: center;">“Joe”</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Millie Pearson</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Mary Lou Fusi</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Carmen Fanous</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Emily Iaconelli</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Spanish Armada</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Michele Olender</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><a href= "https://www.patreon.com/planttrainers" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer"><img class="aligncenter wp-image-6518" title= "We appreciate your support!" src= "http://planttrainers.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/Patron-Support-Footer@2x.png" alt="Support Us Today!" width="500" height="185" /></a><br /> <em>Don’t forget to contact us at <a href= "mailto:info@planttrainers.com">info@planttrainers.com</a></em><em> with your question for our Plant Trainers Facebook Lives!</em></p> <p style="text-align: center;">We hope you enjoyed this podcast!

A Prayer For Compassion with Dr. Sailesh Rao - PTP274
<p>In this episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk to Dr. Sailesh Rao the Executive Producer of "What The Health", "Cowspiracy" and the upcoming documentary "A Prayer for Compassion". Dr. Rao is an extremely calm and intellectual man who has a strong understanding of strategy and possibility. During our time together we learned about the work Climate Healers is doing in creating a world of nonviolence as well as the economic repercussions that can affect a fully vegan world. He gives us some understanding of why we can expect 2026 to see an explosion of plant-eating people across the nations. We hope you find this intriguing.

The Future of Sustainable Produce with Alina Zolotareva - PTP273
<p>In this episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk to Alina Zolotareva about the future of sustainable produce. She tells us about Aerofarms who “planted” their roots in the city of New Jersey.  Alina helps us uncover what we really need to know about our greens. Have you ever wondered what organic actually means? If the food you are paying a premium for can actually be called sustainable? Alina tells us how much produce is actually being wasted from the time it blooms in the fields to when it's shipped across countries and borders - nevermind the waste in our refrigerators. So now I bet you are thinking…."if it’s being shipped so far, is there any nutrients left in those cucumbers?"...well the answer may just kale you!</p> <p>And as usual, thanks for all your ratings, reviews on Apple Podcasts and interaction on Instagram. If you have not yet followed us @planttrainers, please do it now!</p> <p>Alina Zolotareva, a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN), leverages her background in nutrition science and public health to translate nutrition science to consumers. That plays a key role in AeroFarms’ mission to combat food deserts and bring fresh, local, nutritious leafy greens to all communities. In addition to marketing and sales, Alina also leads product development, working on the cutting edge of leafy greens innovation in flavor and nutrition. Before AeroFarms, Alina had worked for a culinary nutrition foodservice consulting company based in NYC focused on improving health through great tasting and sustainable food.</p> <p>She has also spent time in nutrition and marketing at Unilever and other local food brands. Alina is a graduate of Cornell University and Presidential Research Scholar with a B.S. with Honors in Nutrition Sciences and Dietetics. She is passionate about all things food and wellness, and believes that the only way great health can be achieved for all people is through food that tastes great--like AeroFarms delicious baby greens!</p> <h4><strong>In this episode we discuss:</strong></h4> <ul> <li>How to grow fresh food all year round in cities like NYC</li> <li>Aerofarms</li> <li>Organic</li> <li>Industrial farming</li> <li>Why we want to know where our food is coming from</li> <li>The decrease in good farming land</li> <li>Losing nutrient density</li> <li>Food waste (40-76%)!</li> <li>Is it nutrient dense?</li> <li>Pesticides and less waste</li> <li>For everyone or the elite?</li> <li>GMO</li> <li>Dream greens</li> <li>Making the best chooses for your produce  </li> </ul> <h4><strong>Links to things we mentioned:</strong></h4> <p><a href= "https://www.planttrainers.com/product/yummy-foods-activity-book-for-kids-print/"> Yummy Foods Activity Book For Kids</a></p> <p><a href= "https://www.planttrainers.com/product/easy-recipes-busy-parents/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Easy Recipes For Busy Parents</a></p> <p>Alina Zolotareva - <a href= "https://www.instagram.com/thealinafeed" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Instagram</a></p> <p>AeroFarms - <a href="https://aerofarms.com/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Website</a>, <a href= "https://www.instagram.com/aerofarms" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Instagram</a>, <a href= "https://www.facebook.com/AeroFarms/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Facebook</a>, <a href="https://twitter.com/AeroFarms" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Twitter</a></p> <p>Dream Greens - <a href="https://www.dreamgreens.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Website</a>, <a href= "https://www.instagram.com/lovedreamgreens" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Instagram</a>, <a href= "https://www.facebook.com/LoveDreamGreens/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Facebook</a>, <a href= "https://twitter.com/LoveDreamGreens" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Twitter</a></p> <h4 style="text-align: center;">Thank you to this month’s Patrons for supporting us on <a href= "https://www.patreon.com/planttrainers" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Patreon</a>:</h4> <p style="text-align: center;">“Joe”</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Millie Pearson</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Mary Lou Fusi</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Carmen Fanous</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Emily Iaconelli</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Spanish Armada</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Michele Olender</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><a href= "https://www.patreon.com/planttrainers" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer"><img class="aligncenter wp-image-6518" title= "We appreciate your support!" src= "http://planttrainers.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/Patron-Support-Footer@2x.png" alt="Support Us Today!" width="500" height="185" /></a><br /> <em>Don’t forget to contact us at <a href= "mailto:info@planttrainers.com">info@planttrainers.com</a></em><em> with your question for our Plant Trainers Facebook Lives!</em></p> <p style="text-align: center;">We hope you enjoyed this podcast!

Finding More Gratitude Through Traditions - PTP272
<p>In this episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk about finding more gratitude through traditions. Since this episode is coming out the day after Thanksgiving we thought it would be a good time to discuss this topic. Giving thanks and spending time with family doesn’t need to happen one day a year. Sometimes we feel people are simply going through the motions with their holiday seasons or traditions. So today we wanted to challenge you to think outside the box. Take the time to really understand what gratitude is and how you celebrated your Thanksgiving and possibly even come up with new meaningful rituals in your everyday life or during your upcoming celebratory days to help up your levels.</p> <p>We thought that you could think of at least 3 people who you are grateful for and send them this podcast link <a href= "http://www.planttrainers.com/272" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">www.planttrainers.com/272</a> with a little note of gratitude. Ask them to pay it forward and let’s see how many traditions we can make more “grateful” this season.</p> <h4><strong>In this episode we discuss:</strong></h4> <ul> <li>What is gratitude?</li> <li>What is "thanks"?</li> <li>Making traditions more meaningful</li> <li>The "practice"</li> <li>Changing traditions</li> <li>The history of Thanksgiving vs tradition</li> <li>Weaving gratitude into celebrations and traditions</li> <li>Creating tradition</li> </ul> <h4><strong>Links to things we mentioned:</strong></h4> <p>Our <a href="https://www.instagram.com/planttrainers/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Instagram</a></p> <p><a href= "https://www.planttrainers.com/product/school-lunches-a-guide-to-making-it-easy-and-healthy/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">School Lunches - A Guide To Making It Easy and Healthy</a></p> <p>How To Show Appreciation and Gratitude with Blake Fly - <a href= "https://www.planttrainers.com/218" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">PTP218</a></p> <p>Becoming A Plant-Based Family of 8 with Jessica Dugas - <a href= "https://www.planttrainers.com/221" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">PTP221</a></p> <p><a href="https://www.planttrainers.com/recipes/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Plant Trainers Recipes</a></p> <p><a href= "https://www.planttrainers.com/plant-based-thanksgiving/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Plant-Based Thanksgiving Stuffed Squash</a></p> <h4 style="text-align: center;">Thank you to this month’s Patrons for supporting us on <a href= "https://www.patreon.com/planttrainers" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Patreon</a>:</h4> <p style="text-align: center;">“Joe”</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Millie Pearson</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Mary Lou Fusi</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Carmen Fanous</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Emily Iaconelli</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Spanish Armada</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Michele Olender</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><a href= "https://www.patreon.com/planttrainers" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer"><img class="aligncenter wp-image-6518" title= "We appreciate your support!" src= "http://planttrainers.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/Patron-Support-Footer@2x.png" alt="Support Us Today!" width="500" height="185" /></a><br /> <em>Don’t forget to contact us at <a href= "mailto:info@planttrainers.com">info@planttrainers.com</a></em><em> with your question for our Plant Trainers Facebook Lives!</em></p> <p style="text-align: center;">We hope you enjoyed this podcast!

We have been waiting a long time to have Dr. Shah say on our podcast that a plant-based diet can be and is a healthy option for our children.</p> <p>But, there is more to this show than that. Dr. Shah talks to us about breastfeeding, formula, supplements, feeding your children solids, weaning, cow’s milk and so many other questions new parents have. Please share this podcast with any parents you know whether they are plant-based or not. There will for sure be something they can take away from this very informative show. Share it on Facebook, in an email, or on Instagram. Or after you subscribe, leave us a rating and review so others can find this podcast too. We are so glad you are here.</p> <p>Dr. Reshma Shah is a board-certified paediatric physician. She obtained her undergraduate and graduate degrees from Johns Hopkins University and her medical degree from Drexel University College of Medicine. Dr. Shah has over a decade of experience in primary care pediatrics and served as an assistant clinical professor at Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital, a leading children's hospital in Cleveland, Ohio.</p> <p>She currently cares for patients at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center and is an affiliate clinical instructor at Stanford University School of Medicine. In addition to clinical practice, Dr. Shah has a strong interest in family health and wellness, with a focus on plant-based nutrition.

Insulin Shock, Type 1 Diabetes and Reversing Colitis with Joshua Turner - PTP269
<p>In this episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk to Joshua Turner about how going into insulin shock twice actually was the beginning of him taking control of his type 1 diabetes and completely reversing his Colitis. Today Josh is passionate about telling everyone he can that food is medicine and that it saved his ass...well, it also saved his eyes, heart, stomach, and life.</p> <p>His story of when he first became diabetic to gaining over 100 pounds to that week where he had to be brought back from insulin shock twice by the paramedics is more than interesting and inspiring. It is completely emotional. He gained his whole life back and has no one to thank for it but himself and plants, although he would say Josh LaJaunie and his doctor have a lot to do with it. But at the end of the day, he showed up and did the work.</p> <p>What we love about this interview is how Josh is a regular guy, spending his free time trying to make a difference. His story is real as can be and is the story of so many people you know. Whether you know someone who is type one, type two or pre-diabetic, please share this episode with them. Josh is so raw and real and they will for sure be able to find a bit of themselves in this story.</p> <h4><strong>In this episode we discuss:</strong></h4> <ul> <li>Helping others</li> <li>Growing up and type 1 diabetes</li> <li>Type 1 and type 2</li> <li>Gaining the weight</li> <li>Wanting to be normal</li> <li>Insulin shock</li> <li>Looking in the mirror</li> <li>Retinopathy</li> <li>Medicine</li> <li>Colitis</li> <li>Making changes</li> <li>Food and exercise</li> </ul> <h4><strong>Links to things we mentioned:</strong></h4> <p><a href="https://www.energybits.com/">Energybits</a> – use code “<em>PlantTrainers</em>” for 20% off</p> <p><a href="https://www.patreon.com/planttrainers" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Patreon</a></p> <p>Joshua Turner - <a href= "https://www.facebook.com/joshua.turner.94" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Facebook</a>, <a href= "https://www.instagram.com/josh_turner1977/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Instagram</a></p> <p><a href="https://www.plantpurenation.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">PlantPure Nation</a></p> <p><a href="https://www.forksoverknives.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Forks Over Knives</a></p> <p><a href="http://www.whatthehealthfilm.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">What The Health</a></p> <p>The Inspiring & Motivating Josh LaJaunie - <a href= "https://www.planttrainers.com/207/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">PTP207</a></p> <p>Making Choices Through Mindset with Howard Jacobson, Josh LaJaunie & Sid Garza-Hillman - <a href= "https://www.planttrainers.com/189/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">PTP189</a></p> <h4 style="text-align: center;">Thank you to this month’s Patrons for supporting us on <a href= "https://www.patreon.com/planttrainers" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Patreon</a>:</h4> <p style="text-align: center;">“Joe”</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Millie Pearson</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Mary Lou Fusi</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Carmen Fanous</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Emily Iaconelli</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Spanish Armada</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Michele Olender</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><br /> <em>Don’t forget to contact us at <a href= "mailto:info@planttrainers.com">info@planttrainers.com</a></em><em> with your question for our Plant Trainers Facebook Lives!</em></p> <p style="text-align: center;">We hope you enjoyed this podcast!

From Health Scares to Health Coaches with Dr Kasey Johnson - PTP268
<p><img style="float: right;" src= "https://assets.libsyn.com/secure/show/61993/PTP268_-_Our_Interview_with_Dr_Kasey_Johnson1.png" alt="Plant Trainers with Dr Kasey Johnson" width="300" height= "300" />In this episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we share our interview from the Unlock Wellness Podcast with Dr. Kasey Johnson. For those of you who don’t know our full story, you can learn about it today. Here are what her show notes had to say:</p> <p>Episode 133: Shoshana and Adam Chaim are hosts of The Plant Trainers Podcast, and are dedicated to transforming as many lives as possible. They both have such inspiring wellness journeys. When Shoshana was pregnant with their second child, Adam discovered that he had a tumor on his kidney, and was initially told that he wouldn’t make it past 40 years old. This overwhelming situation led Adam and Shoshana to become advocates for their own health and has inspired them to help educate as many people as possible about true health and wellness. They are changing so many lives.</p> <p>Excited to share our conversation!</p> <h4><strong>In this episode we discuss:</strong></h4> <ul> <li>Adam’s Tumor</li> <li>Adam’s Heart Disease</li> <li>VHL</li> <li>PTSD</li> <li>Getting things back on track</li> <li>The effects of a plant-based diet on 1 subject</li> <li>Living as a Plant-Based family</li> </ul> <h4><strong>Links to things we mentioned:</strong></h4> <p><a href="http://www.planttrainers.com/product/trainingforlife/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">#TrainingForLife T-Shirt</a></p> <p>The Unlock Wellness Podcast - <a href= "https://drkaseyjohnson.com/episode-133/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Episode 133</a></p> <p>Our Transition To A Plant-Based Lifestyle - <a href= "https://www.planttrainers.com/003-2/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">PTP003</a></p> <p>Keep up with Shoshana and Adam on social media!</p> <ul> <li>Instagram: <a href="https://instagram.com/planttrainers/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">@planttrainers</a></li> <li>Facebook: <a href= "https://www.facebook.com/PlantTrainersPodcast/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Plant Trainers</a></li> <li>Podcast: <a href= "https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-plant-trainers-podcast/id957883184?mt=2" target="_blank" rel="noopener">The Plant Trainers Podcast</a></li> <li>Website: <a href="https://www.planttrainers.com/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">www.planttrainers.com</a></li> </ul> <h4 style="text-align: center;">Thank you to this month’s Patrons for supporting us on <a href= "https://www.patreon.com/planttrainers" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Patreon</a>:</h4> <p style="text-align: center;">“Joe”</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Millie Pearson</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Mary Lou Fusi</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Carmen Fanous</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Emily Iaconelli</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Spanish Armada</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Michele Olender</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><a href= "https://www.patreon.com/planttrainers" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer"><img class="aligncenter wp-image-6518" title= "We appreciate your support!" src= "http://planttrainers.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/Patron-Support-Footer@2x.png" alt="Support Us Today!" width="500" height="185" /></a><br /> <em>Don’t forget to contact us at <a href= "mailto:info@planttrainers.com">info@planttrainers.com</a></em><em> with your question for our Plant Trainers Facebook Lives!</em></p> <p style="text-align: center;">We hope you enjoyed this podcast!

Getting Back To School With A Holistic Approach - PTP267
<p><img style="float: right;" src= "https://assets.libsyn.com/secure/show/61993/PTP267_-_Holistic_Back_To_School.png" alt="Getting Back To School With A Holistic Approach" width="300" height="300" />In this episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk about how taking a holistic approach to getting back to school can really improve the whole family’s quality of life. Even though we focus on the school year, the 4 pillars of change we discuss can be applied to anyone’s life whether they are parents or not!</p> <p>In our own coaching practice and just like many doctors, we take a holistic approach to health and disease reversal following certain pillars. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could teach our children and ourselves to practice these life skills in order to help avoid unnecessary disease and stress?</p> <p>So share this with every parent, teacher, and administrator you know. And if you take any action after listening to this episode, be sure to document it on social media and tag us @planttrainers across all social media platforms!</p> <h4><strong>In this episode we discuss:</strong></h4> <ul> <li>Pre-teaching life skills at the start of the school year</li> <li>Meetings</li> <li>Food</li> <li>Schedule</li> <li>Movement</li> <li>Mindfulness</li> <li>Routine</li> <li>Setting examples</li> <li>Actionable tips to start with today</li> </ul> <h4><strong>Links to things we mentioned:</strong></h4> <p><a href= "https://www.planttrainers.com/product/yummy-foods-activity-book-for-kids-print/"> Yummy Foods Activity Book For Kids</a></p> <p><a href= "https://www.planttrainers.com/product/school-lunches-a-guide-to-making-it-easy-and-healthy/"> School Lunches: A Guide To Making It Easy and Healthy</a> - eBook</p> <p>A New School Year & New Beginnings - <a href= "https://www.planttrainers.com/213/">PTP213</a></p> <p>School Lunches Made Easy and Healthy - <a href= "https://www.planttrainers.com/122/">PTP122</a></p> <p>Back To School - <a href= "http://www.planttrainers.com/ptp035-back-to-school/">PTP035</a></p> <p><a href="https://www.planttrainers.com/back-school-snacks/">Back to School Snacks</a> - blog</p> <h4 style="text-align: center;">Thank you to this month’s Patrons for supporting us on <a href= "https://www.patreon.com/planttrainers" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Patreon</a>:</h4> <p style="text-align: center;">“Joe”</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Millie Pearson</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Mary Lou Fusi</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Carmen Fanous</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Emily Iaconelli</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Spanish Armada</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Michele Olender</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><a href= "https://www.patreon.com/planttrainers" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer"><img class="aligncenter wp-image-6518" title= "We appreciate your support!" src= "http://planttrainers.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/Patron-Support-Footer@2x.png" alt="Support Us Today!" width="500" height="185" /></a><br /> <em>Don’t forget to contact us at <a href= "mailto:info@planttrainers.com">info@planttrainers.com</a></em><em> with your question for our Plant Trainers Facebook Lives!</em></p> <p style="text-align: center;">We hope you enjoyed this podcast!

Effects of Food with The Creator of The Glycemic Index, Dr. David Jenkins - PTP266
<p>In today's episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk to Dr. David Jenkins, the man behind the glycemic index. Dr. Jenkins’ name is not that famous, but his research is and we see his name being spoken more and more. This is due to his amazing work and speaking engagements within the vegan community. Dr. Jenkins starts his talk with us by reminiscing about growing up in Europe and spending time with his aunt on their property about his love and excitement for all things Christmas.</p> <p>This ended up being the catalyst for him giving up meat and instilling worry and fear about his overall health with his mother. Little did she know, that he would grow up, create the ever-popular glycemic index and reside here, in Toronto, Canada.</p> <p>Dr. Jenkins explains how the glycemic and bread index works, how fiber is the answer, what you need to know about diabetes and how pooping on demand is just not weird. His opinion on oil and nuts is quite interesting and you’ll definitely want to hear about his opinion on soy products for women with breast cancer.</p> <p>Dr. David Jenkins is a University Professor, and Canada Research Chair in the Departments of Nutritional Sciences and Medicines, a staff physician in the Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism, the Director of the Clinical Nutrition and Risk Factor Modification Center, and a Scientist in the Li Ka Shing Knowledge Institute, St. Michael’s Hospital. He was educated at Oxford University, obtaining his DM, DPhil, and DSc. He is a fellow of the Royal College of Physicians (London) and of the Royal College of Physicians of Canada.</p> <p>Dr. Jenkins has served on committees in Canada and the United States that formulated nutritional guidelines for the treatment of diabetes and recommendations for fiber and macronutrient intake under the joint US-Canada DRI system (RDA) of the National Academy of Sciences. He also served as a member of Agriculture Canada’s Science Advisory Board (2004-2009) on the future direction of Canada’s agriculture and agricultural research.</p> <p>He has spent much time working with the food industry to develop products for the supermarket shelf and, for example, helped to initiate Loblaw’s ‘Too Good To Be True’ and most recently their popular “Blue Menu” line of products. His research area is the use of diet in the prevention and treatment of hyperlipidemia and diabetes. He has over 300 original publications on these and related topics.  </p> <p>His team was the first to define and explore the concept of the glycemic index of foods and demonstrate the breadth of metabolic effects of viscous soluble fiber, including blood glucose and cholesterol lowering. His group developed the cholesterol-lowering concept of the dietary portfolio that has entered guidelines in many jurisdictions (e.g. CCS, Heart UK etc.). He believes in the therapeutic value of plant based-diets and that diets have to be environmentally sustainable.</p> <h4><strong>In this episode we discuss:</strong></h4> <ul> <li>Becoming vegetarian</li> <li>What’s in the hamper</li> <li>The connection between pets and food  </li> <li>The impetus for creating the glycemic index</li> <li>Pooping on demand</li> <li>Enzymes</li> <li>Diabetes</li> <li>The misuse of the glycemic index</li> <li>Running away from carbohydrate</li> <li>Mars Bars</li> <li>Processed foods</li> <li>Oils, Nuts and stole and cardiovascular disease</li> <li>Favorite meal</li> <li>Tofu, soy and breast cancer</li> <li>Shanghai women’s breast cancer study</li> <li>Message for the masses for creating a better world</li> </ul> <h4><strong>Links to things we mentioned:</strong></h4> <p><a href="https://www.energybits.com/">Energybits</a> – use code “<em>PlantTrainers</em>” for 20% off</p> <p><a href="https://www.patreon.com/planttrainers" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Patreon</a></p> <p>Dr. David Jenkins - <a href= "http://stmichaelshospitalresearch.ca/researchers/david-jenkins/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Contact info</a></p> <p><a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TTGRaEaNGl0" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">The Vegan Advantage</a> - Dr. David Jenkins</p> <p>Beyond Carnism and Improving Relationships with Dr. Melanie Joy - <a href="https://www.planttrainers.com/264" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">PTP264</a></p> <p>A Forefather of Plant-Based Nutrition, Dr. Caldwell Essylsten - <a href="https://www.planttrainers.com/208/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">PTP208</a></p> <h4 style="text-align: center;">Thank you to this month’s Patrons for supporting us on <a href= "https://www.patreon.com/planttrainers" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Patreon</a>:</h4> <p style="text-align: center;">“Joe”</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Millie Pearson</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Mary Lou Fusi</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Carmen Fanous</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Emily Iaconelli</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Spanish Armada</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Michele Olender</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><a href= "https://www.patreon.com/planttrainers" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer"><img class="aligncenter wp-image-6518" title= "We appreciate your support!" src= "http://planttrainers.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/Patron-Support-Footer@2x.png" alt="Support Us Today!" width="500" height="185" /></a><br /> <em>Don’t forget to contact us at <a href= "mailto:info@planttrainers.com">info@planttrainers.com</a></em><em> with your question for our Plant Trainers Facebook Lives!</em></p> <p> </p> <p><a href= "https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-plant-trainers-podcast/id957883184?mt=2" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><img class= "aligncenter wp-image-6691 size-full" style="float: right;" title= "Subscribe to our podcast!" src= "https://www.planttrainers.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/Subscribe-Apple-Podcasts@2x.png" alt="Subscribe to our podcast!" width="250" height="150" /></a></p> <p style="text-align: left;">We hope you enjoyed this podcast!

After spending her entire life struggling with health and hormone issues that left her sick, exhausted, and gaining weight, Gina discovered the power of a plant-based diet. With this knowledge, she healed herself of chronic conditions that once controlled her.

Beyond Carnism and Improving Relationships with Dr. Melanie Joy - PTP264
<p>In this episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk to Dr. Melanie Joy about improving relationships and the theory behind Beyond Carnism. Food is something very personal to us. We have been taught the ideology of food just like religion. Dr. Joy helps us unpack why we are so connected to the food we eat and the pets we live with. What we think you will be most interested to hear about is how we can maintain our good relationships or even improve our tarnished relationships around the area of food. As a psychologist and relationship specialist, she has unlocked the important aspects of talking to your partner about becoming plant-based or vegan. And how to keep things happy in a “mixed” relationship, and how not to get divorced! </p> <p>Dr. Melanie Joy is a Harvard-educated psychologist, international speaker, organizational consultant, trainer, and relationship coach. She is the author of the award-winning book Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows: An Introduction to Carnism, as well as  Strategic Action for Animals and the award-winning book Beyond Beliefs: A Guide to Improving Relationships and Communication for Vegans, Vegetarians, and Meat Eaters.</p> <p>Dr. Joy has developed and implemented vegan advocacy training for more than a decade, and she specializes in effective communication, organizational leadership, the psychology of social change, interpersonal relationships, and preventing and treating burnout. She has trained vegan advocates and given her acclaimed carnism presentation on six continents and her work has been featured in major media outlets around the world.</p> <p>Dr. Joy is the eighth recipient of the Ahimsa Award – previously given to the Dalai Lama and Nelson Mandela – for her work on global nonviolence. She also received the Empty Cages Prize – previously given to Tom Regan – for her contribution to furthering the cause of animal rights. As well as the Peter Singer Prize for strategies to reduce the suffering of animals. The video of her recent  TEDx talk on carnism is in the top 1% of the most-viewed TEDx talks of all time. Dr. Joy is also the founding president of the charitable organization, Beyond Carnism, a co-founder of ProVeg International, and the co-director of the Center for Effective Vegan Advocacy (CEVA).</p> <h4><strong>In this episode we discuss:</strong></h4> <ul> <li>Beyond Carnism</li> <li>Carnism is a belief system</li> <li>Defense mechanism</li> <li>Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs and Wear Cows</li> <li>Reconnecting with animals</li> <li>Crowding out the animal products</li> <li>Beyond Belief</li> <li>Communication and the process</li> <li>Not getting divorced!</li> <li>Talking to your partner</li> <li>Mixed relationships</li> <li>Respect and influence</li> <li>When the carnivore attacks</li> <li>Actionable tips for strengthening veganism</li> </ul> <h4><strong>Links to things we mentioned:</strong></h4> <p>Thank you to our sponsor <a href= "http://www.foursigmatic.com/planttrainers">Four Sigmatic Foods</a>.

A Special Episode on The Truth About Superfoods - PTP262
<p><a href= "https://www.planttrainers.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/PTP262-Truth-About-Superfoods.png"> <img class="alignright size-medium wp-image-7744" style= "float: right;" src= "https://www.planttrainers.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/PTP262-Truth-About-Superfoods-300x300.png" alt="PTP262 - Truth About Superfoods" width="300" height= "300" /></a>In today's episode of the Plant Trainers Podcast, we have decided to play a recording of a Live video Shoshana did a little bit ago all about superfoods! They are exactly that, SUPER. Filled with amazing benefits for the body. But the term has “bean” used as a marketing tool to get your attention. Just because an item on the shelf has superfood written all over it, doesn’t mean it's a winner for your health. On top of that, many people think they can’t go plant-based because it will just cost too much to keep their pantry stocked with exotic and rare seeds and powders. We don't give a “guac” what other people say, superfoods can be cheap and readily available in your regular grocery stores.</p> <p>So give a listen to the interactive Facebook Live Shoshana did about these foods we love “berry” much and some “asparagus tips” for using them. Our only regret is that there was not more time to cover some other items like the puns from this introduction. And be sure to check us out on our Plant Trainers Facebook page or @planttrainers on Instagram to get an update on how to find out about our Next Facebook live.</p> <h4><strong>In this episode we discuss:</strong></h4> <ul> <li>What is so special about these foods?</li> <li>Our top 5</li> <li>The incredible benefits</li> <li>Potential downfalls</li> <li>How to use them</li> <li>Are they expensive?</li> </ul> <h4><strong>Links to things we mentioned:</strong></h4> <p><a href="https://www.energybits.com/">Energybits</a> – use code “<em>PlantTrainers</em>” for 20% off</p> <p><a href= "https://www.planttrainers.com/product/yummy-foods-activity-book-for-kids-print/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Yummy Foods Activity Book For Kids</a></p> <p><a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p9ZZNW_w4H0" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Facebook Live Replay</a></p> <h4 style="text-align: center;">Thank you to this month’s Patrons for supporting us on <a href= "https://www.patreon.com/planttrainers" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Patreon</a>:</h4> <p style="text-align: center;">“Joe”</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Millie Pearson</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Mary Lou Fusi</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Carmen Fanous</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Emily Iaconelli</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Spanish Armada</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Michele Olender</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><a href= "https://www.patreon.com/planttrainers" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer"><img class="aligncenter wp-image-6518" title= "We appreciate your support!" src= "http://planttrainers.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/Patron-Support-Footer@2x.png" alt="Support Us Today!" width="500" height="185" /></a><br /> <em>Don’t forget to contact us at <a href= "mailto:info@planttrainers.com">info@planttrainers.com</a></em><em> with your question for our Plant Trainers Facebook Lives!</em></p> <p> </p> <p>We hope you enjoyed this podcast!

Life is No Yoke with Lenny and Shalva Gale - PTP259
<p><a href= "https://www.planttrainers.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/PTP259-Lenny-Gale.png"> <img class="alignright size-medium wp-image-7707" style= "float: right;" src= "https://www.planttrainers.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/PTP259-Lenny-Gale-300x300.png" alt="PTP259 - Life is No Yoke" width="300" height="300" /></a>In today's episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk to Lenny and Shalva Gale about how life is no yoke and all things power blenders. If you are plant-based or vegan, chances are you have a blender. Knowing how to use your blender to its full capacity is key. Using a power blender to make soups, smoothies, sauces, and juices are going to save you a ton of time...and even money too. So whether you're cooking for one, a large family, young kids, or mature adults, you’ll get tips and recipe ideas in this show to make life that much easier. And if there is anything we learned that was driven home during this show, it’s to take the 30 seconds to properly wash your container after each use. It’s made a world of difference in our lives already.</p> <p>Lenny and Shalva Gale, also known as Mr. and Mrs. Vitamix, are the couple behind Life is NO YOKE. They mesh work and life passionately by promoting a daily blend! Lenny left a consulting job and CPA license to start Life is NO YOKE in 2012. Today, Mr. Vitamix spends most of his working hours helping people buy their Vitamix and advocating for a whole food, plant-based lifestyle. His partner in life and biz, Shalva, left a corporate training job and her master's degree in psychology to join Life is NO YOKE full time in 2016. Mrs. Vitamix spends most of her working hours creating with the Vitamix and advocating for reducing our reliance on animal products.</p> <h4><strong>In this episode we discuss:</strong></h4> <ul> <li>Babies and sleep</li> <li>Vegan and compromise</li> <li>Power blenders</li> <li>The perfect green juice experience</li> <li>The green smoothie</li> <li>Hiding foods for picky eaters</li> <li>Nice cream</li> <li>For the busy on the go people</li> <li>Making baby food</li> <li>Maintenance and cleaning</li> <li>The origin story of Life is No Yolk</li> <li>Dealing with family</li> <li>Actionable tips </li> </ul> <h4><strong>Links to things we mentioned:</strong></h4> <p><a href="https://www.energybits.com/">Energybits</a> – use code “<em>PlantTrainers</em>” for 20% off</p> <p><a href="https://www.patreon.com/planttrainers" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Patreon</a></p> <p>Life is No Yoke - <a href="https://lifeisnoyoke.com/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Website</a>, <a href= "https://www.instagram.com/lifeisnoyoke/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Instagram</a>, <a href= "https://www.youtube.com/lifeisnoyoke/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">YouTube</a>,  <a href= "https://www.facebook.com/lifeisnoyoke/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Facebook</a>, <a href="https://twitter.com/lifeisnoyoke" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Twitter</a></p> <p><a href="https://lifeisnoyoke.com/perfect-homemade-frosty/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Wendy's Style Frosty</a></p> <p><a href="https://lifeisnoyoke.com/green-juice/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Everyday Green Juice</a></p> <h4 style="text-align: center;">Thank you to this month’s Patrons for supporting us on <a href= "https://www.patreon.com/planttrainers" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Patreon</a>:</h4> <p style="text-align: center;">“Joe”</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Millie Pearson</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Mary Lou Fusi</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Carmen Fanous</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Emily Iaconelli</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Spanish Armada</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Michele Olender</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><a href= "https://www.patreon.com/planttrainers" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer"><img class="aligncenter wp-image-6518" title= "We appreciate your support!" src= "http://planttrainers.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/Patron-Support-Footer@2x.png" alt="Support Us Today!" width="500" height="185" /></a><br /> <em>Don’t forget to contact us at <a href= "mailto:info@planttrainers.com">info@planttrainers.com</a></em><em> with your question for our Plant Trainers Facebook Lives!</em></p> <p><a href= "https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-plant-trainers-podcast/id957883184?mt=2" target="_blank" rel= "attachment wp-att-4194 noopener noreferrer"><img class= "alignright wp-image-6691 size-full" style="float: right;" title= "Subscribe to our podcast!" src= "https://www.planttrainers.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/Subscribe-Apple-Podcasts@2x.png" alt="Subscribe to our podcast!" width="250" height="150" /></a>We hope you enjoyed this podcast!

Eating You Alive with Sheanne and Dan Moskaluk - PTP258
<p><a href= "https://www.planttrainers.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/PTP258-Eating-You-Alive.png"> <img class="alignright size-medium wp-image-7704" style= "float: right;" src= "https://www.planttrainers.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/PTP258-Eating-You-Alive-300x300.png" alt="PTP258 - Eating You Alive" width="300" height="300" /></a>In today's episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk to Sheanne and Dan Moskaluk from Eating You Alive, about how they healed using a whole food plant-based diet. Sheanne lost 130 lbs and Dan won the battle with stage 4 kidney cancer. They are two healthy energetic souls who are dedicating their lives to making the world happier and healthier by discussing the benefits of eating a whole food plant-based vegan diet as well as animal rights activism. Their story hits us hard and there were tears shed that you were not able to hear or see on the audio recording. Before Shoshana went plant-based she had a ton of weight to lose even 16 months after giving birth and gaining weight could have been an issue.</p> <p>Had Adam not found his tumor on his kidney, and changed his lifestyle, he too may have actually had a cancer story like Dan. It’s almost like finding a plant-based diet kept us from going down the path they did. But the success is that we are all here today, sharing their story and hearing about the amazing documentary, Eating You Alive (in which they are featured). They are very excited about their trip back to their hometown of Ottawa July 14, for the major Rally called “Nation Rising” which is taking place on Parliament Hill and they hope you can join them there.</p> <h4><strong>In this episode we discuss:</strong></h4> <ul> <li>Inspiring others</li> <li>Finding plant based</li> <li>Losing weight</li> <li>Getting people to listen to the information</li> <li>Healing from cancer</li> <li>100 years of data linking animal protein and disease</li> <li>Trial medication or plant-based diet</li> <li>Politics and food policy</li> <li>Congratulating the ones who have made a change</li> <li>Eating You Alive</li> <li>Parliament Hill July 14</li> <li>Indian Rock’s big message</li> </ul> <h4><strong>Links to things we mentioned:</strong></h4> <p>Thank you to our sponsor <a href= "http://www.foursigmatic.com/planttrainers" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Four Sigmatic Foods</a>.

Discipline, Change and Family with Guilt Free TV’s Jeff Morgan - PTP257
<p><a href= "https://www.planttrainers.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/PTP257-Jeff-Morgan.png"> <img class="alignright size-medium wp-image-7697" style= "float: right;" src= "https://www.planttrainers.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/PTP257-Jeff-Morgan-300x300.png" alt="PTP257 - Guilt Free TV Jeff Morgan" width="300" height= "300" /></a>In today's episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk to Guilt Free TV’s Jeff Morgan about discipline, change, and family. Jeff is an extremely motivational guy and he actually has a lot in common with Adam. After recognizing the signs that his diet was not supporting his body the best way it could, he made some drastic changes and never looked back. Kicking bad habits, following your destiny and healing is not an easy thing.</p> <p>Adam and Jeff share some of their insight into what helped them make a very fast change and stick with it long term embracing it as a new lifestyle and everyday reality. Since Jeff has some big guns, we talk about protein and how making the switch to a plant-based lifestyle affected his muscles. And of course, we talked family. We are so grateful for all of you who are sharing these podcasts and leaving us ratings and reviews. They help others find us and help those people propel themselves forward in their health journeys hopefully avoiding unnecessary illnesses and health events in their own lives.</p> <p>Jeff Morgan was a competitive gymnast for 10 years competing through college. He was fascinated by how certain exercises developed strength and size in different parts of the body. After gymnastics ended, he became certified as a personal fitness trainer and continued his education on how to design his perfect body and help others design theirs as well. As he approached his 40’s, he was suffering from many symptoms of ill health such as Rosacea, intestinal bloating, constipation, joint inflammation, and allergies and no longer recognized himself as that young, fit and clean looking athlete he once was. As a father of 2 magnificent boys he wanted to age powerfully and gracefully for them and now he’s doing just that.</p> <p>Not only is he helping his family by becoming the strongest, healthiest version of himself, he’s also helping to create positive change for the animals and the environment which are both suffering due to the animal product industries. His YouTube channel Guilt Free TV helps spread information and awareness regarding a vegan lifestyle.

The way Dr. Kasey’s body healed allowing her to care for herself and her baby will amaze you. And if you are someone who has considered a chiropractor before, we want to know if you would consider taking your day old child?</p> <p>Have a listen to Dr. Kasey’s perspective on that and see if it changes your mind. We also cover toxic products, inflammation, and the 60% rule. But we know you are most interested to know if cracking your knuckles is really THAT bad for you. So make sure to listen to the end and please share this episode and tag us so we can give you some props for the shout out! After all, sharing is caring.</p> <p>Dr. Kasey Johnson is a mom, plant-based chiropractor, author, and podcaster, who hosts The Unlock Wellness Podcast. She is passionate about helping people reach their highest potential by getting to the root cause, whether by improving their nervous system function through chiropractic care, creating less toxic environments, or transforming their health with plant-based nutrition. Dr. Kasey is dedicated to helping families and kids learn about the health benefits of chiropractics at a young age, so she recently published a children’s book that teaches about chiropractics and true health in a fun way.</p> <h4><strong>In this episode we discuss:</strong></h4> <ul> <li>Becoming plant-based</li> <li>Mastitis</li> <li>Learning nutrition in chiropractic school</li> <li>Making changes is like building a muscle</li> <li>Chiropractic care for babies</li> <li>History of chiropractics since 1895</li> <li>How chiropractic care can benefit you</li> <li>If you should not be seeing a chiropractor</li> <li>Specialized chiropractic care</li> <li>Running</li> <li>Inflammation</li> <li>Chemicals and toxic environments</li> <li>The 60% rule</li> <li>Exercises for taking care of your body</li> <li>To crack (knuckles) or not to crack?</li> <li>The Unlock Wellness Podcast</li> </ul> <h4><strong>Links to things we mentioned:</strong></h4> <p>Thank you to our sponsor <a href= "http://www.foursigmatic.com/planttrainers" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Four Sigmatic Foods</a>.

How To Be A Superhero Dad - PTP255

Adam has been called every name in the book, crazy, determined, crazy, dude, dad, Chaim, crazy, obsessed, amazing, role model, athlete, crazy. You get the picture. People cannot understand how he is able to get in as many hours of training that he does, work a full day, have a podcast, coach clients, sit down at the table for dinner with his family every night, and be asleep by 10 p.m.</p> <p>To Shoshana and to many others this sounds like a superhero. To their kids, he is just that. So in the spirit of Father's Day, Shoshana asks Adam some deep questions to get a better perspective on priority, values, and being the best darn dad he can in hopes that you will either have a better understanding of his mindset and maybe even some inspiration or tips for you to be your very best superhero whether you're a dad or not.</p> <h4><strong>In this episode we discuss:</strong></h4> <ul> <li>Fears about becoming a dad</li> <li>What changed?</li> <li>The effort to be home for dinner</li> <li>Sacrifice</li> <li>The rough days at work</li> <li>Meditation</li> <li>Strategies for being a calmer person</li> <li>Communication</li> <li>How can dads find more time to spend with their kids</li> <li>Dad-Bros and support</li> <li>Adam’s Dad</li> <li>Role models</li> <li>The Dad’s e-book</li> <li>Actionable tips to stand a little taller in the superhero cape</li> </ul> <h4><strong>Links to things we mentioned:</strong></h4> <p>Thank you to our sponsor <a href= "http://www.foursigmatic.com/planttrainers" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Four Sigmatic Foods</a>.

Running Across America and Wilderness Therapy with David Chandler - PTP254
<p><a href= "https://www.planttrainers.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/PTP254-David-Chandler.png"> <img class="alignright wp-image-7605 size-medium" style= "float: right;" src= "https://www.planttrainers.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/PTP254-David-Chandler-300x300.png" alt="PTP254 - David Chandler" width="300" height="300" /></a>In today's episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk to David Chandler about running across America and wilderness therapy. When we first learned about David, we had a lot of questions. Did he run or walk across America? Did he do it consecutively? Was it self-supported? What was going on with this guy to give him the tenacity to do it? After hopping on the phone for a quick conversation, we quickly learned the David had a lot of strength both in his running abilities and character that we knew we wanted to share with you. From the planning that took place, to the logistics around food and accommodation, to his hopes of bringing attention to wilderness therapy, there are lessons to be taken away from this episode that can show almost anyone that if you want something badly enough, it is indeed possible.</p> <p>David is a plant-based ultramarathoner. His passions are running, nature and helping others. For the last three years, he has worked as a wilderness therapy guide at SUWS of the Carolinas with kids with mental health and substance abuse struggles. SUWS helps empower kids through the lens of nature and teaches communication and coping skills. As you will hear, David recently spent time running across America. He ran 2900 miles across America from Santa Monica, CA to Wrightsville Beach, NC to raise money for scholarships for low-income students to attend SUWS. He has raised $11,000 so far. David continues to run ultramarathons to raise money for these kids he still works with.</p> <p><strong>In this episode we discuss:</strong></p> <ul> <li>David Chandler</li> <li>Running for punishment running 🏃🏽</li> <li>Becoming Plant-Based 🌱Paleo 🐮</li> <li>Ultra and endurance sports 🏃🏻‍♂️</li> <li>Running across America</li> <li>From California 🌊 to North California 🏠</li> <li>The baby stroller  👶🏻</li> <li>Food 🍎</li> <li>The deeper meaning 🤔</li> <li>Wilderness guide 🌲</li> <li>Nature heals people 🌷</li> <li>Recovery 😴</li> <li>Actionable tips for helping yourself and others</li> </ul> <p><strong>Links to things we mentioned:</strong></p> <p>Thank you to our sponsor <a href= "http://www.foursigmatic.com/planttrainers" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Four Sigmatic Foods</a>.

Getting Ready For Triathlon Season - PTP253
<p><a href= "https://www.planttrainers.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/PTP253-Triathlon.png"> <img class="alignright size-medium wp-image-7612" style= "float: right;" src= "https://www.planttrainers.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/PTP253-Triathlon-300x300.png" alt="PTP253 - Triathlon" width="300" height="300" /></a>In this episode of the Plant Trainers Podcast, we take you back in time to our awesome show on the sport of triathlon. Since the season has already begun and there are so many listeners who are heading into this sport this year we wanted to make sure you didn't miss all these important tips. You can get very overwhelmed with what to do and what to buy, so we simplified it for you in this episode so you don’t get carried away.</p> <p>We know there are some of you out there who are thinking, I am interested in triathlon, but I missed the last three months of training, so I’ll wait for next year. But the truth is, there is no need to wait. As you will hear in this podcast, there are shorter distances you can get into. As long as you can walk, balance on a bike and swim to save your life or do back crawl, a little bit of planned practice can get you through a tiny intro to the sport. And of course, you can just start training in the three disciplines throughout this season and see how you feel in a few months. If you’re really not ready, you’ve got a head start for the next season.</p> <p>Since we first recorded this episode a few things have changed. Adam has become a much stronger swimmer than he ever was. This had to do with a bit of correction and some good swim programs Adam designed. But mostly from just putting in the time in the pool. Oh, and he has completed Ironman Louisville (his 2nd) since the recording as well. We forgot to mention that ENERGYbits is something we both used as an energy source and the RECOVERYbits are part of our regime too. They are light, easy to ingest and can be even eaten on the course.</p> <h4><strong>In this episode we discuss:</strong></h4> <ul> <li>Equipment</li> <li>Types of races</li> <li>Training</li>

Dementia and The Alzheimer’s Solution with Team Sherzai - PTP252
<p class="p1"><span class="s1"><a href= "https://www.planttrainers.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/PTP252-Team-Sherzai.png"> <img class="alignright size-medium wp-image-7591" style= "float: right;" src= "https://www.planttrainers.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/PTP252-Team-Sherzai-300x300.png" alt="PTP252 - Team Sherzai" width="300" height="300" /></a>In this episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk to Doctors Ayesha and Dean Sherzai, also known as Team Sherzai, about dementia and the Alzheimer's solution. We have them break down dementia and give us all a better understanding of what brain diseases are plaguing us here in North America. Unsurprisingly, we learn that these diseases are spreading throughout the world just like diabetes and heart disease as the fast food culture migrates.</span></p> <p class="p1"><span class="s1">We talk about the ideas around genes, preventing and reversing dementias so people can forget the myths and really understand the facts. Of course, Team Sherzai explains their whole body NEURO plan they use to educate their patients and readers on lifestyle change so that Alzheimer's disease does not have to grab hold of its victims earlier or as forcibly as it does. As we know this affects not just the individual, but their family members who care about them as well. Listening to this episode and making even the smallest change can not only help you postpone or inevitably stop brain diseases from invading your life, but it can help with so many other prevalent diseases as well. This is the protocol for ultimate health.</span></p> <p class="p1"><span class="s1">By 2030 a staggering 75 million people on our planet will be suffering from dementia and that number is estimated to double every 20 years. Please share with this episode with those you know need to hear this important message by emailing it to them directly or posting it on your social media.</span></p> <p class="p1"><span class="s1">As Co-Directors of the Alzheimer’s Prevention Program at Loma Linda University Medical Center, Dr. Dean and Dr. Ayesha Sherzai, through research and their extensive collective medical backgrounds, work to demystify the steps to achieving long-term brain health and the prevention of devastating diseases such as Alzheimer’s and dementia. They are also the authors of the much-acclaimed book, The Alzheimer's Solution: A Breakthrough Program to Prevent and Reverse the Symptoms of Cognitive Decline at Every Age.

Surviving A Heart Attack and Being Flatlined with Dave Willits - PTP 251
<p class="p1"><span class="s1"><a href= "https://www.planttrainers.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/PTP251-Dave-Willits.png"> <img class="alignright size-medium wp-image-7567" style= "float: right;" src= "https://www.planttrainers.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/PTP251-Dave-Willits-300x300.png" alt="PTP251 - Dave Willits" width="300" height="300" /></a>In today’s episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk to Dave Willits known as the man who survived a heart attack after being flatlined. Dave seemed like a healthy, sporty guy on the outside, but little did he know that he would have to be shocked 11 times to be brought back to life. As you will hear during the interview, Dave’s dietary lifestyle, with an added love for pizza, was a contributing factor to this horrible event.</span></p> <p class="p1"><span class="s1">We have a special place in our hearts (no pun intended) for this episode. It’s just not sexy. What do we mean by that? Well, Dave didn’t have a food addiction. He didn’t have 100+ pounds to lose. He didn’t have a drug addiction. We would never try to take away from the stories of others, including our guests and friends who have come so far and changed so much.</span></p> <p class="p1"><span class="s1">But the truth is, if you can see it on the outside, you know you need to make a change on the inside and these stories are easy to relate to by others in similar physical conditions. But with Dave, a lot like Adam, there were no major outward red flags screaming change your life now, before it’s too late. If you look a certain way in the mirror, it’s easy to think that you are invincible and these devastating events only happen to other people, and not you.</span></p> <p class="p1"><span class="s1">Over 12 years ago we lost a good friend to a heart attack…and on the outside, he was one of the last people of our group of friends who you would think would go off to play floor hockey and never return home again. We want to help others make those changes before it’s too late even if they are not obese, on other medications or suffering from serious diseases. No one deserves to go through what Dave did especially when it is preventable.</span></p> <p class="p1"><span class="s1">Dave Willits is a simple and humble guy. He is out there trying to help others find the plant-based lifestyle. Today he is a single dad of a 22-year-old son, 13-year-old daughter.

Food Is the Solution: What to Eat to Save the World with Matthew Prescott - PTP250
<p><span class="s1"><a href= "https://www.planttrainers.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/PTP250-Matthew-Prescott.png"> <img class="alignright size-medium wp-image-7532" style= "float: right;" src= "https://www.planttrainers.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/PTP250-Matthew-Prescott-300x300.png" alt="PTP250 - Matthew Prescott" width="300" height="300" /></a>In today's episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk to the extremely intelligent Matthew Prescott about what to eat to save the world and the social and environmental issues associated with the current food production systems. There is a grave issue on planet earth and there is also a solution: food. We (as a society) have been trained to look away from the when our needs have a negative effect on the environment. This causes individuals to make up or repeat statements like “we will never run out of clean water” or “it takes more land to grow plants for humans than it does to raise cattle for food”.</span></p> <p class="p1"><span class="s1">So today we get to the bottom of these myths, allowing humans to have more intelligent and fact driven conversations about the state of our plant and the food on our plate. Our hope is this will allow the masses to make more informed decisions about what is on the end of their fork, knowing the impact it’s having on local and global levels. Please (press pause) and share this podcast on social media right now as this issue does not only affect you but your children and grandchildren.</span></p> <p class="p1"><span class="s1">Matthew Prescott is the author of Food Is the Solution: What to Eat to Save the World. He's an advisor to the Good Food Institute, Senior Director of Food & Agriculture for The Humane Society of the United States, and a leading figure in the global movement to reform how we farm and eat. A sought-after speaker and thought leader, Prescott has spent over a decade and a half sharing his ideas with Ivy League universities, Fortune 500 companies, consumers, and more.</span></p> <p class="p1"><span class="s1">His work has helped lead to sweeping changes in the supply chains of hundreds of major food companies, impacted countless individuals’ diets, and has been covered extensively by the media: his work has been featured by CNN, in the pages of the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, USA Today, the Boston Globe, and countless more; he's been published in FORTUNE, the Washington Post, Barron’s and others; and he was even once a guest on NPR’s Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me.

The Impact of Nutrition on Mental Health with Dr. Linda Plowright - PTP248
<p class="p1"><span class="s1"><a href= "https://www.planttrainers.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/PTP248-with-Dr.-Linda-Plowright.png"> <img class="alignright size-medium wp-image-7527" style= "float: right;" src= "https://www.planttrainers.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/PTP248-with-Dr.-Linda-Plowright-300x300.png" alt="PTP248 - Dr. Linda Plowright" width="300" height= "300" /></a>In today's episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk to Dr. Linda Plowright about the impact of nutrition on mental health. Dr. Plowright has made the strong correlation between eating a plant-based diet and your overall mental health and mental illness. She helps us understand all the differences between specific mood disorders. In today's busy life it seems like everyone spirals out of control every now and then, so being able to recognize the signs of needing help is imperative. You’ll be shocked to hear what she has to say about the microbiome. This is an important episode to share with anyone who is affected by poor mental health or mental illness and their support systems. We do hope you share on Facebook, Instagram or any other form of social media to show your support for those suffering and thriving with mental illness.</span></p> <p class="p1"><span class="s1">Dr. Linda Plowright is a psychiatrist working in London, Ontario.

The Big Picture and Changing The Game with Dr. James Loomis - PTP246
<p class="p1"><span class="s1"><a href= "https://www.planttrainers.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/PTP246-with-Dr.-James-Loomis.png"> <img class="alignright size-medium wp-image-7472" style= "float: right;" src= "https://www.planttrainers.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/PTP246-with-Dr.-James-Loomis-300x300.png" alt="PTP246 - with Dr. James Loomis" width="300" height= "300" /></a>In today's episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk to Dr. James Loomis, better known as Dr. Jim Loomis, about the big picture and changing the game. Dr. Loomis lets us in on the big picture of the new film, The Game Changers that he had a role in. This film is not yet available to the general public, but after you hear what he has to say, we know it will be moved to the top of your list of must-sees. We really love how articulate Dr. Loomis is in describing the “health care” system and how he really makes us see things in a practical way.</span></p> <p class="p1"><span class="s1">You’ll find out if there is hope for your doctor to ever get plant-based training, despite their current position on the matter. Having been sick and overweight himself, Jim tells his personal story of getting in shape and gives his perspective on what it really means to be well. You’ll hear if stress has a small or grave effect on your overall health. There is something for newbies, veterans and for those not yet warmed up to the plant-based lifestyle, so please share away on your favorite social media platform.</span></p> <p class="p1"><span class="s1">James F. Loomis Jr., M.D., M.B.A has served as the team internist for the St. Louis Rams football team and the St. Louis Cardinals baseball team. He was also the tour physician for the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra. Before coming to the Barnard Medical Center, he practiced internal medicine at St. Luke’s Hospital in St. Louis, where he was also the director of prevention and wellness. Jim was also on the clinical faculty of the department of internal medicine at Washington University School of Medicine. He received his medical degree from the University of Arkansas, where he was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society and graduated with honors.</span></p> <p class="p1"><span class="s1">He subsequently completed his internship and residency in internal medicine at Barnes Hospital in St. Louis, Mo. In addition, Dr. Loomis received an M.B.A. from the Olin School of Business at Washington University in St. Louis. He is board certified in internal medicine and has also completed the certification program in Plant-Based Nutrition from Cornell University. When not practicing medicine, Jim enjoys reading history books, cooking and teaching plant-based cooking classes. He also enjoys running, biking, swimming and has completed numerous half marathons, marathons and triathlons.</span></p> <p class="p1"><span class="s1"><strong>In this episode we discuss:</strong></span></p> <ul class="ul1"> <li class="li1"><span class="s1">St. Louis Rams, Cardinals and the Symphony Orchestra</span></li> <li class="li1"><span class="s1">The Game Changers - The Film</span></li> <li class="li1"><span class="s1">“Bro Science”</span></li> <li class="li1"><span class="s1">The next generation</span></li> <li class="li1"><span class="s1">The true benefits of a plant-based lifestyle</span></li> <li class="li1"><span class="s1">Forks Over Knives and his journey</span></li> <li class="li1"><span class="s1">Sick care vs health care</span></li> <li class="li1"><span class="s1">Who he’s treating now and how he does it</span></li> <li class="li1"><span class="s1">Vegan vs Plant-Based</span></li> <li class="li1"><span class="s1">Training doctors in plant-based nutrition</span></li> <li class="li1"><span class="s1">What does it mean to be well</span></li> <li class="li1"><span class="s1">Stress </span></li> </ul> <p class="p1"><span class="s1"><strong>Links to things we mentioned:</strong></span></p> <p class="p1"><span class="s1">Thank you to our sponsor, <a href= "http://healthiq.com/planttrainers"><span class="s2">Health IQ</span></a>.

We discuss some of the basic philosophies people identify with in the vegan and plant-based lifestyle. It’s interesting how individual journeys change people and although an overall goal may always be the same, core values can transform. Of course we talk about food, hacks for chopping food bills and discuss one lucky lobster. We also get into a bit of a debate when it comes to the topic of health and Veganism. You’ll have to listen for more on that.</span></p> <p class="p1"><span class="s1">Victoria Moran is a vegan of over three decades and was voted “PETA’s Sexiest Vegan Over 50” in 2016. Listed by VegNews among the Top 10 Living Vegetarian Authors, she’s written twelve books, including The Love-Powered Diet, The Good Karma Diet, the international bestseller Creating a Charmed Life, and the iconic Main Street Vegan, whose fans include Bill Clinton and Ellen DeGeneres, and which won the “Best of Vegan 2017” contest in the book category. Victoria was featured twice on Oprah, she hosts the award-winning Main Street Vegan show on Unity Online Radio. She is also producer of the upcoming documentary from filmmaker Thomas Wade Jackson, The Compassion Project.</span></p> <p class="p1"><span class="s1">JL Fields is a newspaper writer, magazine columnist, speaker, culinary instructor, lifestyle coach, activist, and radio personality.

Lupus, Celiac Disease and Cosmetics with Mandi Dawson - PTP244
<p><a href= "https://www.planttrainers.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/PTP244-Mandi-Dawson.png"> <img class="alignright size-medium wp-image-7441" style= "float: right;" src= "https://www.planttrainers.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/PTP244-Mandi-Dawson-300x300.png" alt="Mandi Dawson" width="300" height="300" /></a>In today's episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk with Mandi Dawson about lupus, celiac disease and cosmetics. She has made many changes in her life due to her celiac and lupus diagnosis. She went from a junkier vegan diet to a more healthy, plant-based vegan diet to help battle her health issues. Today she tells us a bit of this story and lets us know about the creams, soaps and makeup we may be putting on our bodies. Mandi shares the effects they have on us and how we can make more compassionate choices for the animals, the world and ourselves. And yes, men, this is for you too! So don't go anywhere and share it with anyone in your life who is not using clean, vegan cosmetics.</p> <p>Mandi Dawson is a Canadian/British makeup artist and total beauty lover. She was a child model from the age of 1 and was exposed to makeup from a very early age. She is now a beauty blogger at The Beauty Edition. Immediately after becoming vegan, Mandi started to change her focus and bring more attention to a Cruelty-Free and Vegan Beauty/Lifestyle.</p> <h4><strong>In this episode we discuss:</strong></h4> <ul> <li>Lupus</li> <li>Celiac disease</li> <li>The big 10</li> <li>Cruelty Free and Vegan symbols</li> <li>Parabens</li> <li>Men’s cosmetics</li> <li>Mainstream cosmetics you can trust</li> <li>Why you need to clean your cosmetic utensils</li> <li>Tooth brushing oral hygiene</li> <li>Oil pulling</li> <li>Actionable tips for starting today</li> <li>Supporting vegan and non vegan companies</li> <li>Actionable tips to start with today to become more conscious about the cosmetics in your home.</li> </ul> <h4><strong>Links to things we mentioned:</strong></h4> <p>Thank you to our sponsor, <a href= "http://healthiq.com/planttrainers"><em>Health IQ</em></a>.

Strength Training, Powerlifting and The Mental Edge with Alex Ciccone - PTP243
<p class="p2"><span class="s1"><a href= "https://www.planttrainers.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/PTP243-Alex-Ciccone.png"> <img class="alignright size-medium wp-image-7437" style= "float: right;" src= "https://www.planttrainers.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/PTP243-Alex-Ciccone-300x300.png" alt="Alex Ciccone" width="300" height="300" /></a>In today’s episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast we talk to Alex Ciccone about strength training, powerlifting and the mental edge. Alex has an amazing presence in the Instagram world and we have been following each other for a while. We were able to meet face to face at the Animal Justice event in December and immediately hit it off.</span></p> <p class="p2"><span class="s1">Today we talked about a few interesting things. We talked about his journey to Veganism, his soccer career and how he got into men’s physique and powerlifting competitions. We hit the topics of nutrition for building muscle as well as the “P” word…protein. Whether you’re 15 or 50 there is something to be taken away in this episode. It’s a good share for anyone who hits the gym.</span></p> <p class="p2"><span class="s1">Alex Ciccone is a vegan lifestyle social media influencer who found his love for spreading awareness soon after going vegan over 4 years ago. His primary reason was for the ethical treatment of animals. Alex provides education and entertainment through different creative content across Instagram, his blog, Facebook, Twitter and Snapchat (and coming soon a YouTube channel). Whether it be vegan infographics, news stories, memes and everything between, for Alex it’s about keeping things positive and loving. He wants to not only align with vegan values, but also to reach as many individuals as possible and help in their journey to being or becoming vegan.</span></p> <p class="p2"><span class="s1">Alex has a particular interest in fitness as he grew up playing competitive level soccer. After falling in love with strength training, he became a certified personal trainer. Fitness is a very important part in his story of becoming vegan – as he uses this motivation to debunk the myth that vegans are “weak and malnourished”. That lead Alex to compete in a men’s physique competition as a vegan and pursue powerlifting. At the end of the day it is always about spreading awareness for Alex – to show all the amazingness that the vegan lifestyle has to offer!</span></p> <p class="p2"><span class="s1"><strong>In this episode we discuss:</strong></span></p> <ul class="ul1"> <li class="li2"><span class="s1">Win, win, win</span></li> <li class="li2"><span class="s1">Growing up playing soccer</span></li> <li class="li2"><span class="s1">Animal-based protein</span></li> <li class="li2"><span class="s1">The vegan journey and people’s reactions</span></li> <li class="li2"><span class="s1">The fluffy bunny</span></li> <li class="li2"><span class="s1">The mental edge and change</span></li> <li class="li2"><span class="s1">Teens and making good choices</span></li> <li class="li2"><span class="s1">Complete protein</span></li> <li class="li2"><span class="s1">Men’s physique and powerlifting</span></li> <li class="li2"><span class="s1">Supplements</span></li> <li class="li2"><span class="s1">Creatine</span></li> <li class="li2"><span class="s1">Infographics</span></li> <li class="li2"><span class="s1">Hunger cues</span></li> <li class="li2"><span class="s1">How can parents help?</span></li> <li class="li2"><span class="s1">How can teens help?</span></li> <li class="li2"><span class="s1">Finding your why</span></li> </ul> <p class="p2"><span class="s1"><strong>Links to things we mentioned:</strong></span></p> <p class="p2"><span class="s1">Thank you to our sponsor, <a href= "http://healthiq.com/planttrainers"><span class="s2">Health IQ</span></a>.

<p><a href= "https://www.planttrainers.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/PTP242-Anna-Pippus.png"> <img class="alignright size-medium wp-image-7398" style= "float: right;" src= "https://www.planttrainers.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/PTP242-Anna-Pippus-300x300.png" alt="The Food Guide Policy Progress with Anna Pippus - PTP242" width="300" height="300" /></a>In today's episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast we talk to Anna Pippus about the progress being made with the food guide and how it incorporates a more plant-based approach. Anna has been following along and even consulting on the changes happening right now in Canada with regards to the Canadian Food Guide and the Guiding Principles. She fills us in on how these changes are taking place, how it is different from other countries and where the pushback is coming from. She helps clear up the cyber rumors and sets us straight letting us know for sure if the dairy food group is actually going to be eliminated.</p> <p>We spend some time talking about the connotation for adults and children when foods are called “alternative” and what food taxes are really for. We think you’ll be pleasantly surprised with some of the advancements you hear about in this episode so share it with your friends near and wide.</p> <p>Anna Pippus is an animal rights lawyer specializing in laws and policies that impact animals farmed for food. Anna  holds degrees in law from the University of Toronto and psychology from the University of British Columbia.

Compassionate Living with The Buddhist Chef, Jean-Philippe Cyr - PTP241
<p><a href= "https://www.planttrainers.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/PTP241-Buddhist-Chef.png"> <img class="alignright size-medium wp-image-7373" style= "float: right;" src= "https://www.planttrainers.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/PTP241-Buddhist-Chef-300x300.png" alt= "Compassionate Living with The Buddhist Chef, Jean-Philippe Cyr - PTP241" width="300" height="300" /></a>In today's episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast to The Buddhist Chef, Jean-Philippe Cyr, about the meaning of compassion and how it extends beyond the food we eat. He explains how Buddhism is the path to vegan eating and how the foods we prepare can affect your overall psyche. Of course we talk about his amazing website and all the videos he produces to make vegan cooking easy for anyone. He points out that people often feel defeated before they even begin because the ingredient lists are too long or the recipe pictures are too beautiful. He hopes to help everyone bring tasty vegan cooking to their homes that anyone will be happy eating regardless of which food groups they normally consume. And you will be really interested to hear what he has to say about soy. Please share this episode on social media as it is “soy” good.</p> <p>Jean-Phillipe (a Quebec native, just like us) has been Buddhist for over 20 years. He attended the École hôtelière de la Capitale in Quebec City where he excelled in French cuisine and classic techniques. After graduating he apprenticed, among other establishments, at the acclaimed French restaurant Le Saint-Amour. He then continued to evolve as a chef and master cooking techniques in gourmet restaurants in Quebec, including The Capitole, a renowned dining establishment. Now, he shares his passion and what he has learned with all of his subscribers and followers via his website The Buddhist Chef / La Cuisine de Jean-Philippe in which he publishes simple and tasty vegan recipes as easy-to-follow video tutorials! When he’s not in the kitchen, he loves spending time with his beautiful wife and two dogs.</p> <h4><strong>In this episode we discuss:</strong></h4> <ul> <li>Making it delicious for everyone</li> <li>Cooking with kids</li> <li>Vegan is the Buddhist way</li> <li>Killing spiders</li> <li>Cooking meat after veganism   </li> <li>So many choices</li> <li>Being intimidated in the kitchen</li> <li>Cookbook pictures - inspiration or defeat?</li> <li>His books and recipes</li> <li>Montreal restaurants</li> <li>His fave recipes</li> <li>Soy</li> <li>Actionable tips to start making good vegan food</li> </ul> <h4><strong>Links to things we mentioned:</strong></h4> <p>Thank you to our sponsor, <a href= "http://healthiq.com/planttrainers"><em>Health IQ</em></a>.

She walks us through how she embraced a plant-based diet personally and how she brought it into her practice. Dr. Dulaney has literally traded her scalpel for a spatula. She went from doing multiple procedures a day to teaching cooking and plant-based classes. She does this to educate her patients and help them make changes in their lives that will help them have the best chances of avoiding cardiac events. We go through all the vocabulary you keep hearing about heart health to help you really understand what they all mean. We include the important factors about cholesterol, oil and baby aspirin.</p> <p>Dr. Jami Dulaney went to West Virginia University for undergraduate and medical school. She did her residency and cardiology fellowship at the University of Pittsburgh. She was on the faculty at West Virginia University before moving to Florida to begin her private practice. Dr. Dulaney is very excited about the potential to reverse disease through nutrition and has incorporated nutrition education classes into her primary care and cardiology practice. </p> <h4><strong>In this episode we discuss:</strong></h4> <ul> <li>Finding plant-based</li> <li>Plant-based camps</li> <li>Bringing plant-based to the office</li> <li>Trading the scalpel for the spatula</li> <li>General heart vocabulary explained</li> <li>Procedure or diet...the decision</li> <li>Getting kids started off for good health</li> <li>Cholesterol & oil</li> <li>Baby aspirin and risk factors</li> <li>Marathon, Ironman & plant-based  </li> <li>Charlotte County Plant-Based Nutrition Conference</li> <li>Tips for improving heart health</li> </ul> <h4><strong>Links to things we mentioned:</strong></h4> <p>Thank you to our sponsor, <a href= "http://healthiq.com/planttrainers"><em>Health IQ</em></a>.

We start off by talking to Doug about his experience in raising his plant-based daughter, Eliza. The support he had from friends, family and doctors is very different from what we experienced. We also get into what you need to know in becoming a trail runner and if you’re already an experience runner you’ll surely pick up some great tips and gems in this one. We cover everything from mindset, gear, distances, expectations and tips that you won’t want to miss.</p> <p>Doug Hay is an ultrarunner, coach, and lover of all things vegetables. He's the founder of Rock Creek Runner, host of the Trail Talk podcast, a trail and ultra running resource, and the co-host of No Meat Athlete Radio. Doug is fanatical about everything trail running: beards, plaid shirts, bruised toenails, and all. You can find him on the beautiful trails in the Black Mountains of North Carolina or at @RockCreekRunner on your favorite social media platform.</p> <h4><strong>In this episode we discuss:</strong></h4> <ul> <li>Plant-based children and pushback</li> <li>Plant-based transition</li> <li>Running recovery</li> <li>Eating what you want as a runner</li> <li>Going the distance (or what distances he has done)</li> <li>Trail running 101</li> <li>Training for trail runs</li> <li>Rookie tips</li> <li>Trail gear</li> <li>Actionable tips for getting started</li> </ul> <h4><strong>Links to things we mentioned:</strong></h4> <p>Thank you to our sponsor, <a href= "http://healthiq.com/planttrainers"><em>Health IQ</em></a>.

Feeling High Vibes with Yogi Triathlete, Jess and BJ Gumkowski - PTP238
<p><a href= "https://www.planttrainers.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/PTP238-Yogi-Triathlete.png"> <img class="alignright size-medium wp-image-7320" style= "float: right;" src= "https://www.planttrainers.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/PTP238-Yogi-Triathlete-300x300.png" alt= "Feeling High Vibes with Yogi Triathlete, Jess and BJ Gumkowski - PTP238" width="300" height="300" /></a>In today's episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast we talk to the Yogi Triathlete, Jess and BJ Gumkowski about high vibes. High vibes is the state we all want to be in - feeling good, moving with the flow of life and being our very best positive selves. We talk about how our exercise, the people we interact with, the food we eat, getting still and the way we talk and think all affect our vibes. Jess shares how she used to be a very low vibe person (she was kind and caring, just not so much to herself) and how she made small changes to be the high energy, positive thinking, trail running Yogi Triathlete she is today. There is a really great connection between the 4 of us on this show and we hope you feel it!</p> <p>Jess is Head Yogi at Yogi Triathlete. She is a yoga instructor, meditation teacher, multi-time Ironman triathlete, ultra runner and podcaster. Jess is a Vegan Lifestyle Coach and Educator and author of the <em>Yogi Triathlete Cookbook: High Vibe Recipes for the Athlete Appetite.</em> She credits mindfulness practices and high vibrational eating with creating significant and meaningful changes in her health, career, and relationships; and holds both essential to peak performance in sport and life. Jess has well over a decade of experience working with athletes on body and mind mastery.</p> <p>BJ is an 11x Ironman triathlete, yoga instructor, podcaster, personal trainer and mindfulness-based triathlon and running coach. His zeal for life is infectious as is his passion for serving those around him in achieving their greatest dreams.</p> <p>BJ’s mindfulness practice was born out of his darkest night and has since become a focal point of his training. He is certified in Plant-Based Nutrition from the T. Colin Campbell Center from Nutrition Studies and is currently one of the top Ironman triathletes in the USA and he’s doing it all on plants.</p> <p>Together they are on a mission to create a better world by changing the face of athleticism, teaching mindfulness, sharing stories through the Yogi Triathlete podcast and promoting a healthy lifestyle through plant-based nutrition.</p> <h4><strong>In this episode we discuss:</strong></h4> <ul> <li>What is Yogi Triathlete?</li> <li>Triathlon life - athletes and sherpas</li> <li>Getting into yoga practice</li> <li>Yoga supports triathlon training</li> <li>High vibes</li> <li>Getting still to be a better person</li> <li>Getting still for athletes</li> <li>Meditation</li> <li>Becoming plant-based</li> <li>Mindful eating</li> <li>Vegan dog food</li> <li>Yogi Triathlete Cookbook</li> </ul> <h4><strong>Links to things we mentioned:</strong></h4> <p>Thank you to our sponsor, <a href= "http://healthiq.com/planttrainers"><em>Health IQ</em></a>.

Strategies For Strengthening Your Family Bond - PTP237
<p><a href= "https://www.planttrainers.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/PTP237-Family-Bond.png"> <img class="alignright size-medium wp-image-7286" style= "float: right;" src= "https://www.planttrainers.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/PTP237-Family-Bond-300x300.png" alt="Strategies For Strengthening Your Family Bond - PTP237" width= "300" height="300" /></a>In today's episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, Adam and I share the secrets that help strengthen your family bond and a few other techniques we think are pretty great too. Family time builds confidence, trust, connection and memories. As primary and high school teachers we have a deep understanding of children, their personalities and their relationships with their families. Put that experience together with our studies and research and being parents ourselves, we see trends that help keep family ties strong.</p> <p>Often we see the responsible adults and leaders that develop from many of the holistic practices we are going to talk to you about today. Take time right now to rate how you feel your family is doing as a team and then think about what you want that number to be. We hope some of the ideas we talk about today will help you get to where you want to be and help to strengthen your family bond.</p> <h4><strong>In this episode we discuss:</strong></h4> <ul> <li>Benefits of creating a family bond</li> <li>Family experiences</li> <li>Meditation</li> <li>Family meetings</li> <li>In the kitchen</li> <li>Exercise</li> <li>Setting examples</li> <li>1:1 time</li> <li>Actionable tips to start with today</li> </ul> <h4><strong>Links to things we mentioned:</strong></h4> <p>Thank you to our sponsor, <a href= "http://healthiq.com/planttrainers"><em>Health IQ</em></a>.

Run, Eat & See The World with Ultrarunner Kim Matthews - PTP236
<p><a href= "https://www.planttrainers.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/PTP236-Kim-Matthews.png"> <img class="alignright size-medium wp-image-7277" style= "float: right;" src= "https://www.planttrainers.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/PTP236-Kim-Matthews-300x300.png" alt= "Run, Eat & See The World with Ultrarunner Kim Matthews - PTP236" width="300" height="300" /></a>In today's episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast we talk to Kim Matthews, the ultrarunner from Run, Eat, World. Kim was not always a runner, as you will learn in this interview, nor was she always eating a plant-based diet. Just like all of us, she is on a journey. Kim is an Australian ultra trail runner currently living in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. She began running in 2008 by signing up for a local 5km event with her husband and has not looked back.</p> <p>Over the years her distances gradually increased, before finally completing a marathon in 2014. After a six month break to go traveling in 2015, she returned to Australia with two goals: to switch from a vegetarian diet to a plant-based lifestyle and to complete an ultramarathon. The first goal was easy, much easier than expected. The second goal was achieved three months later, a 50 km trail race in Victoria, Australia. This was Kim’s first win in a running event.</p> <p>One month after the 50 km race Kim and her husband moved to Bangkok, Thailand, where her love for trails and traveling continued to grow. They spent 18 months there before relocating to Vietnam. Since arriving in South East Asia Kim has finished 15 races, 10 of these being ultramarathons. She has been awarded first place in 14 of these races. Her biggest accomplishment to date is being crowned the Asia Trail Master champion of 2017. Kim attributes her success to hard work, luck and, of course, a healthy diet.</p> <p><strong>In this episode we discuss:</strong></p> <ul> <li>Who is Kim Matthews?</li> <li>Getting started with running</li> <li>Exploring new trails and countries</li> <li>Asia Trail Master Winner</li> <li>Road running vs trail running</li> <li>Getting started with running & ultras</li> <li>Plant-based lifestyle</li> <li>Being vegan around the world</li> <li>Fueling your ultra runs</li> <li>Nutrition and ultras</li> <li>Rapid fire</li> </ul> <p><strong>Links to things we mentioned:</strong></p> <p>Thank you to our sponsor, <a href= "http://healthiq.com/planttrainers"><em>Health IQ</em></a>.

Making Cooking Easy For Everyone with Sam Turnbull - PTP235
<p><a href= "https://www.planttrainers.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/PTP235-Sam-Turnbull.png"> <img class="alignright size-medium wp-image-7260" style= "float: right;" src= "https://www.planttrainers.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/PTP235-Sam-Turnbull-300x300.png" alt="Making Cooking Easy For Everyone with Sam Turnbull - PTP235" width="300" height="300" /></a>In today's episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk to Sam Turnbull about making vegan cooking easy for everyone.  A lot of people think they have to eat like a rabbit if they adopt a vegan diet and don't end up making a change despite their understanding that this can make a difference in their health and for the environment. We talk to Sam about how she has “veganized” her favorite comfort foods and made them affordable and simple for everyone. Sam doesn't get wrapped up with fancy superfood ingredients and we can attest that flavor is never compromised with her recipes.</p> <p>This show is going to give you everything you need for keeping costs down, the ingredient lists short, and it will even get you thinking about what you can make for your loved ones on Valentine's Day this year. We hope you're not hungry now, but you definitely will be by the end of this episode.</p> <p>Sam Turnbull is the creative voice and vision behind the popular blog It Doesn’t Taste Like Chicken, author of the cookbook Fuss-Free Vegan, and now a new YouTuber. Growing up in a family of foodies, chefs, butchers, and hunters, (yep, it’s true), Sam was determined to prove that vegan cooking didn't have to be all kale and quinoa.

Understanding Food Literacy with Char Nolan - PTP234
<p><a href= "https://www.planttrainers.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/PTP234-Char-Nolan.png"> <img class="alignright size-medium wp-image-7251" style= "float: right;" src= "https://www.planttrainers.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/PTP234-Char-Nolan-300x300.png" alt="Understanding Food Literacy with Char Nolan - PTP234" width= "300" height="300" /></a>In today's episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk with Char Nolan about understanding food literacy and how it differs in affluent and impoverished areas. If you are not familiar with food literacy yet, you will be. And you’ll want to share this episode with any parent, educator or human you know. But the truth is, food literacy is not just for kids...adults have a big disconnect with food as many don’t understand where it comes from, what effects processing has on our food and how foods affect our health. Let's face it, with the convenience of prepared foods in grocery stores and restaurants (if you can call some of these places restaurants) there is a lack of planning and skill we need to make healthy choices.</p> <p>Char Nolan is a woman of many hats. She is first and foremost (unofficially) THE Philadelphia plant-based advocate. She is a Rouxbe certified chef, a food literacy educator, eCornell Plant-Based Nutrition graduate and more. She has worked alongside some of the greatest influencers in plant-based nutrition. You’ll get to see her passion about her latest project in our chat today.</p> <p>Char helps us understand how food deserts and impoverished communities are at a huge disadvantage and how we all need to be food literacy enthusiasts. Stay tuned right till the end to join us in the #plantkindness revolution and help pay it forward.</p> <h4><strong>In this episode we discuss:</strong></h4> <ul> <li>Finding Plant-Based</li> <li>Commercials on tv</li> <li>Food literacy</li> <li>The origins of food</li> <li>Snap and food deserts</li> <li>Where kids are learning about food</li> <li>Yummy Foods Activity Book For Kids</li> <li>How to get kids involved in food literacy at home</li> <li>Getting food literacy into the schools</li> <li>Actionable tips to start with today</li> </ul> <h4><strong>Links to things we mentioned:</strong></h4> <p>Char Nolan - <a href="https://www.instagram.com/char_nolan/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Instagram</a>, <a href= "https://twitter.com/nolancharlene" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Twitter</a></p> <p><a href= "https://www.planttrainers.com/product/yummy-foods-activity-book-for-kids-print/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Yummy Foods Activity Book For Kids</a></p> <p> </p> <h4 style="text-align: center;">Thank you to this month’s Patrons for supporting us on <a href= "https://www.patreon.com/planttrainers" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Patreon</a>:</h4> <p style="text-align: center;">“Joe”</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Millie Pearson</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Stu Dolnick</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Mary Lou Fusi</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Carmen Fanous</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Emily Iaconelli</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Spanish Armada</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><a href= "https://www.patreon.com/planttrainers" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer"><img class="aligncenter wp-image-6518" title= "We appreciate your support!" src= "http://planttrainers.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/Patron-Support-Footer@2x.png" alt="Support Us Today!" width="500" height="185" /></a><br /> <em>Don’t forget to contact us at <a href= "mailto:info@planttrainers.com">info@planttrainers.com</a></em><em> with your question for our Plant Trainers Facebook Lives!</em></p> <p> </p> <p><a href= "https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-plant-trainers-podcast/id957883184?mt=2" target="_blank" rel= "attachment wp-att-4194 noopener noreferrer"><img class= "alignright wp-image-6691 size-full" style="float: right;" title= "Subscribe to our podcast!" src= "https://www.planttrainers.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/Subscribe-Apple-Podcasts@2x.png" alt="Subscribe to our podcast!" width="250" height="150" /></a>We hope you enjoyed this podcast!

We share the answers to your questions and the information you want to hear about us. As we interview other top experts in the fields of nutrition, fitness and wellness, we often share little tidbits of ourselves, but we try to keep it all factual and relevant to the topics at hand. Through email, texts, Facebook, talks we give and conversations with “real people” we are often asked more personal questions that we don’t always share here.</p> <p>So we thought that today was a perfect opportunity to share these answers and stories with you today. Maybe this will help you get motivated, take the next step in your journey, realize you are not alone or just get to know us a little bit better. Whatever this episode brings to you today, we realize that you are on a journey and we are so grateful that we are here with you. Thank you for being a part of our tribe and we hope to meet you and get to know you too!

The Plant-Based Solution with Dr. Joel Kahn - PTP231
<p><a href= "https://www.planttrainers.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/Dr.-Joel-Kahn-PTP231.png"> <img class="alignright size-medium wp-image-7190" style= "float: right;" src= "https://www.planttrainers.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/Dr.-Joel-Kahn-PTP231-300x300.png" alt="The Plant-Based Solution with Dr. Joel Kahn - PTP231" width= "300" height="300" /></a>In today's episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast we talk to Dr. Joel Kahn about, well, a lot. Of course we introduce you to his new book, The Plant-Based Solution, which covers all subjects plant-based, but we get into some controversial topics too. We look into how hospital food has changed, or stagnated, since we last spoke on episode 91. We also covered the lectin controversy, the carbohydrate debate (that just came up this month) and if there is actually benefit to a plant-based keto diet and if so, how to navigate it.</p> <p>The highlight of the show was that we actually get Dr. Joel Kahn, known for his sense of humor and co-author of the book “Vegan Sex”, to blush, in discussing the more intimate sexual details. (The truth is I’m blushing just writing/saying it...but the people want to know!!) You know The Plant Trainers Podcast is a family show, but your going to want to listen to the second half without little ears around today.</p> <p>Joel Kahn, M.D., is a plant-based cardiologist who combines the best of Western and complementary therapies for total healing. Known as “America’s Healthy Heart Doc,” he graduated summa cum laude from the University of Michigan and has been practicing invasive, interventional and preventive cardiology since 1990. He is a clinical professor of medicine (cardiology) at Wayne State University School of Medicine and associate professor of medicine at Oakland University Beaumont School of Medicine. In 2013, Dr. Kahn received a certification from the University of South Florida in Metabolic Cardiology and became the first physician in the world to complete the program. Over the past 25 years, Dr. Kahn has improved the lives and vitality of thousands of patients, taking many of them from chronic health problems to vibrant living.</p> <p>His passion for education and prevention is recognized by his patients and peer doctors alike. Dr. Kahn’s medical views are published by the Huffington Post and MindBodyGreen, among other media, and he is a frequent radio, TV and podcast guest. He was voted Sexiest Male Vegan Over 50 by PeTA and won the Health Care Hero award from Crain’s Detroit Business. His fourth book, “<em>The Plant-Based Solution:</em> <em>America's Healthy Heart Doc's Plan to Power Your Health</em>” will be available January 1 2018. And of course he is the owner of GreenSpace Cafe in Michigan.</p> <p>And please remember that starting on Jan 2 in 2018, The Plant Trainers Podcast will be released Tuesday mornings if you haven’t already subscribed do it now!</p> <h4><strong>In this episode we discuss:</strong></h4> <ul> <li>Who’s eating at Green Space Cafe</li> <li>What The Health</li> <li>Progress of hospital food in Detroit.</li> <li>The Lectins controversy</li> <li>The carbohydrate controversy of dec 2017</li> <li>The keto diet</li> <li>ProLon, intermittent, periodic fasting & time restricted feeding</li> <li>Vegan sex</li> <li>The Plant-Based Solution</li> <li>Erectile dysfunction</li> <li>Ingesting your lovers “bodily fluids” is this vegan and is it unhealthy?</li> <li>Tips to improve your sex drive today</li> </ul> <h4><strong>Links to things we mentioned:</strong></h4> <p>Thank you to our sponsor, <a href= "http://healthiq.com/planttrainers"><em>Health IQ</em></a>.

Prescription Lifestyle with Justyna Sanders, M.D. - PTP229
<p>In today's episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk to Justyna Sanders, M.D. about lifestyle medicine and how health is so much more than the food you put on your plate and the weights you lift in the gym. She stresses that there are five key principles that you need to work on in your life to reach optimal health. We tackle the popular questions like: Is IBS real, is organic really that important and how do we know how much we should be eating and of what? This is the episode you need to hear if you want to work towards total optimal health.</p> <p>Justyna Sanders, MD, is the CEO and Founder of Prescription Lifestyle. After obtaining an Honors Bachelor of Kinesiology degree from McMaster University in Canada, she then went off to complete her Doctorate in Medicine from Poznan University of Medical Sciences in Poland.</p> <p>As a visionary and advocate for the field of medicine and the health of humanity, Dr. Justyna Sanders created PrescriptionLifestyle.com. Her objective is to provide life-saving information, promote health, wellness and prevention via evidence-based recommendations. Her wish is that this platform will influence the use of whole food plant-based nutrition as medicine, aid in the unification of all evidence-based disciplines of medicine into one system, encourage the use of personalized medicine, focus on "whole-body" health and the underlying causes of disease, but most notably, to revere Lifestyle as Medicine.</p> <p>Dr. Justyna Sanders' sincere hope is that through her work, she will inspire and empower people to take autonomy of their own health and ultimately aid in the transformation of medicine.</p> <h4><strong>In this episode we discuss:</strong></h4> <ul> <li>Growing up in Poland</li> <li>Being better off poor on potatoes</li> <li>Constipation and IBS</li> <li>Is IBS real?</li> <li>Whole food plant-based lifestyle vs. plant-based lifestyle</li> <li>Organic is important</li> <li>Whole food plant-based pyramid</li> <li>What is lifestyle medicine</li> <li>Five key principles</li> <li>Environmental effects on our body</li> <li>Total health</li> <li>Actionable steps for taking your health to the next level</li> </ul> <h4><strong>Links to things we mentioned:</strong></h4> <p>Thank you to today’s sponsor –><a href= "https://www.energybits.com/"> ENERGYbits</a> – use “PlantTrainers” at checkout for 20% off</p> <p><a href="http://planttrainers.com/wordpress/shop/">Check out our awesome t-shirts in the PT Shop!</a></p> <p><a href="http://bit.ly/pt55tips" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Easiest Holiday Meals Ever PDF</a> with the 55 tips for stress free-cooking this holiday season.</p> <p>Justyna Sanders, M.D. --> <a href= "http://prescriptionlifestyle.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Website</a>, <a href= "https://www.facebook.com/prescriptionlifestyle/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Facebook</a>, <a href= "https://www.instagram.com/prescriptionlifestyle/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Instagram</a>, <a href= "https://twitter.com/PrescrLifestyle" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Twitter</a>, <a href= "https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChKHPbk4pDiGQuwU4Sez90g" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">YouTube</a>, <a href= "https://www.pinterest.com/prescrlifestyle/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Pinterest</a></p> <p><a href= "http://prescriptionlifestyle.com/resources/food-pyramid/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Interactive Food Pyramid</a></p> <p>How Not To Die with Michael Greger, M.D. - <a href= "http://www.planttrainers.com/206/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">PTP206</a></p> <p><a href="https://www.ewg.org/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Environmental Working Group</a></p> <h4 style="text-align: center;">Thank you to this month’s Patrons for supporting us on <a href= "https://www.patreon.com/planttrainers" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Patreon</a>:</h4> <p style="text-align: center;">“Joe”</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Millie Pearson</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Stu Dolnick</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Mary Lou Fusi</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Carmen Fanous</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Emily Iaconelli</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Spanish Armada</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><a href= "https://www.patreon.com/planttrainers" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer"><img class="aligncenter wp-image-6518" style= "display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" title= "We appreciate your support!" src= "http://planttrainers.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/Patron-Support-Footer@2x.png" alt="Support Us Today!" width="500" height="185" /></a><br /> <em>Don’t forget to contact us at <a href= "mailto:info@planttrainers.com">info@planttrainers.com</a></em><em> with your question for our Plant Trainers Facebook Lives!</em></p> <p> </p> <p><a href= "https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-plant-trainers-podcast/id957883184?mt=2" target="_blank" rel= "attachment wp-att-4194 noopener noreferrer"><img class= "alignright wp-image-6691 size-full" style="float: right;" title= "Subscribe to our podcast!" src= "http://planttrainers.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/Subscribe-Apple-Podcasts@2x.png" width="250" height="150" /></a>We hope you enjoyed this podcast!

Support Leads To Success with Heather Kaufman - PTP228
<p>In today's episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk to Heather Kaufman about how support was really the ultimate reason for success when her and her husband, Tim, went through various transitions from the Standard American Diet to Whole Food Plant-Based, no sugar, no oil. As you will hear in this episode, there were plenty of reasons for Heather to change her diet and lifestyle, but history predicted that diets were just a fad in the Kaufman household. That is why she dug deep and made a personal connection and the memory of her mother created an urgency to adopt this new lifestyle. But at the end of the day, the respect and support she gave Tim and he gave her allowed them to make a change. Which in turn has become sustainable and really creates a difference in their quality of life.</p> <p>Heather Kaufman had been dabbling with a plant-based way of eating when a doctor discovered that she had a uterine fibroid that was 14 centimeters long. She then went 100 percent plant-based, ditched the salt, oil, and sugar and started exercising. As a result of Heather's lifestyle changes she is healthy, active, and lives life to its fullest. As a side effect of getting healthy, she has shed 80 pounds and is a competitive runner. Heather had never run a full mile until a few short years ago and is now an ultramarathoner. She is passionate about spreading the message that health comes from your plate and not a number on the scale.</p> <p><strong>In this episode we discuss:</strong></p> <ul> <li>Life before Plant Based</li> <li>Finding a Plant Based lifestyle</li> <li>The transitions</li> <li>Fibroids</li> <li>Timbits</li> <li>Favourite meals</li> <li>Emotional support of spouses</li> <li>Finding support if you are in your own</li> <li>Races, training and Operation Christmas selfie</li> <li>Actionable tips to start with today to give up the sugar, salt and animal products?</li> </ul> <p><strong>Links to things we mentioned:</strong></p> <p>Thank you to today’s sponsor –> <a href= "https://amritahealthfoods.com/?ref=15">Amrita Health Foods</a> – use “PlantTrainers” at checkout for 15% off</p> <p>Become one of our Patrons & get our <a href= "https://www.patreon.com/planttrainers">Monthly Motivation Compilation on Patreon</a></p> <p>Heather Kaufman - <a href= "https://www.facebook.com/heather.barlowkaufman" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Facebook</a></p> <p>The Rantings Of A Former Fat Man with Tim Kaufman - <a href= "http://www.planttrainers.com/135/">PTP135</a></p> <h4>Thank you to this month’s Patrons for supporting us on <a href="https://www.patreon.com/planttrainers" target= "_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Patreon</a>:</h4> <p>“Joe”</p> <p>Millie Pearson</p> <p>Stu Dolnick</p> <p>Mary Lou Fusi</p> <p>Carmen Fanous</p> <p>Emily Iaconelli</p> <p>Spanish Armada</p> <p><a href="https://www.patreon.com/planttrainers" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer"><img class="aligncenter wp-image-6518" title="We appreciate your support!" src= "http://planttrainers.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/Patron-Support-Footer@2x.png" sizes="(max-width: 500px) 100vw, 500px" srcset= "http://planttrainers.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/Patron-Support-Footer.png 851w, http://planttrainers.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/Patron-Support-Footer-300x111.png 300w, http://planttrainers.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/Patron-Support-Footer-768x284.png 768w" alt="Support Us Today!" width="500" height="185" /></a></p> <p><em>Don’t forget to contact us at <a href= "mailto:info@planttrainers.com">info@planttrainers.com</a></em><em> with your question for our Plant Trainers Facebook Lives!</em></p> <p><a href= "https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-plant-trainers-podcast/id957883184?mt=2" target="_blank" rel= "attachment wp-att-4194 noopener noreferrer"><img class= "alignright wp-image-6691 size-full" style="float: right;" title= "Subscribe to our podcast!" src= "http://planttrainers.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/Subscribe-Apple-Podcasts@2x.png" width="250" height="150" /></a>We hope you enjoyed this podcast!

<p><a href= "http://planttrainers.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/PTP226-Rawvana.png"> <img class="alignright wp-image-7090 size-medium" style= "float: right;" src= "http://planttrainers.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/PTP226-Rawvana-300x300.png" alt="The Rawvana Lifestyle with Yovana Mendoza - PTP226" width= "300" height="300" /></a>In today's episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast we finally dive into the raw lifestyle with THE Yovana Mendoza of Rawvana. We have spoken with many raw foodists before on this show, but this time we provide you with the basic foundations you need to know about eating a raw diet especially if it is something you have been considering. Yovana provides all her materials in both English and Spanish in order to help provide resources for those who share her native tongue. Although she was born in America, her Mexican heritage is very important to her. Of course we talk about what a raw diet is, and the different types of sub-raw diets. But more importantly, we talk about practical meals and time-saving ideas to make eating raw at least a bit more accessible to everyone.</p> <p>Yovana Mendoza, the founder of Rawvana, brings a vibrant and authentic voice to living a healthy, conscious, vegan lifestyle. She flips the standard narrative on its head, emphasizing abundance over restriction. Yovana started her YouTube channel over 4 and a half years ago and now, with over a million YouTube followers, she enthusiastically cultivates a welcoming and inclusive space for those looking to improve their lifestyles and lives. She has been vegan for four and a half years. In her quest for knowledge, Yovana has interned with Dr. Douglas Graham and obtained a certification in the Science of Raw Food Nutrition from the Living Light Institute. She is also a certified Holistic Health Coach through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.</p> <p><strong>In this episode we discuss:</strong></p> <ul> <li>Rawvana</li> <li>Detoxing from food, cigarettes and alcohol</li> <li>Emotional release</li> <li>Influencing the Mexican & Spanish culture</li> <li>Influencing the younger populations</li> <li>What is a raw diet</li> <li>Types of raw diets</li> <li>Eating raw and climate</li> <li>Benefits of a raw diet</li> <li>Downfalls of a raw diet</li> <li>Raw and sleep</li> <li>What about oils?</li> <li>Favorite raw meals</li> <li>How much to eat</li> <li>Sugar and fruit</li> <li>Time-saving tips for eating raw</li> <li>Restaurants</li> <li>Actionable tips for starting a raw lifestyle</li> </ul> <p><strong>Links to things we mentioned:</strong></p> <p><a href="http://bit.ly/ptbundle" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">No Meat Athlete Black Friday Bundle</a> - Deal ends 12pm November 28th!</p> <p>Rawvana's <a href="https://rawvana.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Webiste</a>, <a href= "https://www.instagram.com/rawvana/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Instagram</a>, <a href="https://twitter.com/Rawvana" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Twitter</a>, <a href= "https://www.pinterest.ca/rawvana/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Pinterest</a></p> <p>YouTube - <a href="https://www.youtube.com/user/officialrawvana" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Spanish</a>, YouTube - <a href= "https://www.youtube.com/user/rawvanaeng" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">English</a></p> <p>Rawvana Renewal <a href="https://rawvana.com/ebooks/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Guide</a></p>

Diagnosis Dystonia with Tom Seaman - PTP225
<p><a href= "http://planttrainers.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/PTP225-Tom-Seaman.png"> <img class="alignright wp-image-7076 size-medium" style= "float: right;" src= "http://planttrainers.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/PTP225-Tom-Seaman-300x300.png" alt="Diagnosis Dystonia with Tom Seaman - PTP225" width="300" height="300" /></a>In today's episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast we talk about dystonia with Tom Seaman. Dystonia is a neurological movement disorder that many people, including ourselves, have not heard of before. We found it interesting to hear Tom talk about his journey that dystonia is taking him on. We believe his story is inspiring to all who find themselves living with chronic pain or who are unable to physically move through life the way they want to. His openness and honesty was raw and we really appreciate how he was able to talk about the emotional trauma that was paired with his physical challenges.</p> <p>I know that we have said this before, but this podcast must be shared with anyone who could benefit from getting just a glimpse of inspiration or hope because their story is similar to Tom’s. We hope that this podcast will make it into the hands of people who are living undiagnosed with dystonia and that they will be able to make massive changes and find better-coping skills to improve their quality of life.</p> <p>Tom Seaman is a chronic pain and dystonia awareness advocate, health blogger, motivational speaker, and author of the book, Diagnosis Dystonia: Navigating the Journey, a comprehensive resource for anyone living with any chronic condition or other life challenge. He is also a Certified Professional Life Coach in the area of health and wellness. Tom volunteers for the Dystonia Medical Research Foundation (DMRF) as a support group leader, for WEGO Health as a patient expert panelist, and is a member and writer for the Chronic Illness Bloggers Network.</p> <h4><strong>In this episode we discussed:</strong></h4> <ul> <li>What is dystonia?</li> <li>Is it idiopathic?</li> <li>Tom's physical and emotional Journey</li> <li>Escaping the depression</li> <li>Overcoming the physical and mental challenges</li> <li>Depression</li> <li>Where Tom is now?</li> <li>Ideas for managing dystonia (stress, nutrition and exercise)</li> <li>What to expect when reading Tom's book</li> <li>Actionable tips for people who think they may be living with dystonia</li> </ul> <h4><strong>Links to things we mentioned:</strong></h4> <p>Thank you to today’s sponsor –> <a href= "https://amritahealthfoods.com/?ref=15" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Amrita Health Foods</a> – use “PlantTrainers” at checkout for 15% off</p> <p>Become one of our Patrons & <a href= "https://www.patreon.com/planttrainers" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">get our Monthly Motivation Compilation on Patreon</a></p> <p>Tom Seaman's <a href="http://www.tomseamancoaching.com" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Website</a>, <a href= "http://www.facebook.com/TomSeamanAuthor" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Facebook</a>, <a href= "http://www.twitter.com/Dystoniabook1" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Twitter</a>, <a href= "http://www.instagram.com/coachtom12" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Instagram</a>, <a href= "http://www.youtube.com/user/TJFuzzy" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">YouTube</a>, <a href= "http://www.healthisonthehorizon.com" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Blog</a></p> <p><a href= "https://www.amazon.ca/s/ref=as_sl_pc_tf_sb_27?tag=plantrai-20&link_code=wsw&_encoding=UTF-8&search-alias=aps&field-keywords=diagnosis-dystonia&Submit.x=0&Submit.y=0&Submit=Go" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Diagnosis Dystonia: Navigating the Journey</a> by Tom Seaman</p>

This is a special episode as it is not like anything we have talked about before.

Self-Empowerment with The Bad Ass Vegan, John Lewis - PTP223
<p><a href= "http://planttrainers.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/PTP223-John-Lewis.png"> <img class="size-medium wp-image-7046 alignright" style= "float: right;" src= "http://planttrainers.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/PTP223-John-Lewis-300x300.png" alt="Self-Empowerment with The Bad Ass Vegan, John Lewis - PTP223" width="300" height="300" /></a>In today's episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk to John Lewis, also known as, the Bad Ass Vegan about self-empowerment. We look into some of the adversity John faced in his life and explore how self-empowerment or mindset helped frame the situations that made him the man he is today. John is a charismatic, passionate vegan who has a good understanding of the need for self-compassion in the ways of nutrition and fitness. We really enjoyed that John was an open book and hope he can inspire you or someone you love to take control of your goals and make some changes, so please share this episode with someone you know will benefit from it.</p> <p>Born in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1977, John grew up in St. Louis, MO. At a young age of 13 John found himself at 315 pounds, but through hard work and dedication he lost the weight and excelled in football and basketball. He continued his streak of athletic excellence throughout his high school and college years in McCluer Senior High in the heart of Ferguson, Mo. and Harris-Stowe State College. Graduating with a Bachelors degree in marketing, he later went on to pursue his MBA from Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, FL. John’s education in business coupled with his love for health and fitness gave him the ability to start his venture – Bad Ass Vegan – a health and nutrition company that strives to educate individuals on plant-based nutrition. John’s love for his community brought forth the brainchild of “VeganSmart”, a plant-based protein shake company with a foundation whose mission is to prevent obesity through education, physical activity and plant-based nutrition. He is really excited about his upcoming documentary Hip-Hopocrates...or as you will hear, another name...possibly, in which he is teaming up with the makers of Cowspiracy and What The Health. The goal with their new documentary film is to speak about food injustice through the lens of Hip Hop.</p> <h4><strong>In this episode we discuss:</strong></h4> <ul> <li>Bad Ass Vegan</li> <li>Getting to 315 lbs at 13 years old</li> <li>Solving the high school obesity epidemic</li> <li>Letting self-empowerment make your choices for you</li> <li>How self-empowerment effects your goals</li> <li>Changing mindset before disaster</li> <li>Dealing with the non-supporters</li> <li>Is mindset innate or learned?</li> <li>Parenting kids to eat well</li> <li>Making choices when you know better</li> <li>Creating a shift in mindset</li> <li>Knowledge is not emotion</li> <li>Upcoming documentary</li> </ul> <h4><strong>Links to things we mentioned:</strong></h4> <p>Thank you to today's sponsor --> <a href= "https://www.energybits.com/">ENERGYbits</a> - use "PlantTrainers" at checkout for 20% off</p> <p>John's <a href="https://badassvegan.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Webiste</a>, <a href= "https://www.facebook.com/badassvegan/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Facebook</a>, <a href= "https://www.instagram.com/badassvegan/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Instagram</a>, <a href="https://twitter.com/BADASSVEGAN" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Twitter</a></p> <p><a href="https://www.vegansmart.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">VeganSmart</a></p>

Searching For Sero with John Rathwell & Tracy Guenard - PTP203.mp3
<p style="text-align: left;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">In today's episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast we talk to John Rathwell & Tracy Guenard about their project, Searching For Sero. Obviously we ask the questions that everyone wants to know...What is sero and how do you manage to live in a van? But we do get deeper when we discuss what really ignited the fire for John and Tracy to hop in a Westfalia and tour Canada and the US. They both lost loved ones which inspired this project with the ultimate goal of funding suicide prevention and helping others find passion and excitement in green exercise. Searching for Sero is a unique approach, looking for people who are happy in the outdoors and who are encouraging others to find their passion and create more sero.<a href= "http://planttrainers.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/PTP203-1.png"><img class="alignright size-medium wp-image-6807" style="float: right;" src= "http://planttrainers.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/PTP203-1-300x300.png" alt= "Searching For Sero with John Rathwell & Tracy Guenard - PTP203" width="300" height="300" /></a></span></p> <p>John Rathwell is an internationally published and acclaimed action sports photographer. He has been commissioned by such clients as Red Bull, Outside Magazine, The Enthusiast Network over the last several years, just to name a few. John’s motivation for this project came after his father passed away in 2014 from suicide. His father focused his life on working long hours, overtime and any shift he could take. John watched his father’s lifestyle as he grew up and could see that life needed to be more balanced. Throughout the project, John is hoping to motivate people to put a little more focus on outdoor adventure and hobbies that bring happiness to their lives by sharing the stories and photographs of how others live theirs.</p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Tracy Guenard is a traditional 9 to 5 worker. She has years of experience working in the fields of criminology and youth intervention as well as business organizational analysis. People’s life choices and behaviours have always intrigued her. Tracy’s interest in Searching for Sero comes from the desire to dig in and understand the human-being in the choices they make. She hopes to grasp these people’s relationship to happiness and how they can play an active role in their mental wellness. What is worth living for? Life! Life is worth living for and Tracy wants to find out the inspiring stories of these people and their passions and share them with you so you also feel that amazement still exists.</span></p> <h4><strong>In this episode we discuss:</strong></h4> <ul> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">The project</span></li> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">Green exercise</span></li> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">Serotonin  </span></li> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">Outdoor sports</span></li> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">Planning</span></li> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">Feeling like yourself again</span></li> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">Wanting to spread mental wellness not illness</span></li> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">Understanding the idea of taking care of mental wellness</span></li> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">Getting feedback, giving hope</span></li> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">How to be a Sero story variety</span></li> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">Westfalia</span></li> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">Minimalism</span></li> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">Funding the project</span></li> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">The spectrum of mental health and wellness</span></li> </ul>

<p style="text-align: left;"><span style= "font-weight: 400;"><a href= "http://planttrainers.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/PTP202.png"> <img class="alignright size-medium wp-image-6781" style= "float: right;" src= "http://planttrainers.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/PTP202-300x300.png" alt="The Truth About Dairy with Dr. Jennifer Singh - PTP202" width= "300" height="300" /></a>In today's episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast we talk with Dr. Jennifer Singh on the truth about dairy. There are many</span> <em><span style= "font-weight: 400;">MOOO-sconceptions</span></em> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">about dairy that have been ingrained in us since we were small children. "A cup of milk with every meal", “Milk does a body good” and “Got Milk” ads have glorified the dairy industry, but it has been at a price. Our health is declining here in North America and as we talk about during this show, the absence of dairy can make a huge impact on our quality of life.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Jennifer Singh is a doctor, wannabe-chef, wife and mom who is passionate about sharing the power of a plant-based diet and healthy lifestyle. Board-certified in both Internal Medicine and Pediatrics, she is well-acquainted with the dismal health results of the Standard American Lifestyle. Dr. Jennifer Singh is an Assistant Professor at the LSU Health Science Center in Shreveport School of Allied Health, and an Associate Adjunct Professor at the University of North Texas-Fort Worth School of Health Professions, where she teaches others about Lifestyle Medicine in the Graduate Certificate Program.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Dr. Jennifer Singh uses her medical knowledge, cooking skills, and fifteen years of professional teaching & lecturing experience in medical education to teach groups of all sizes and backgrounds about the life-changing power of plant-based nutrition and lifestyle. She owns Singh Wellness, a Lifestyle Medicine coaching practice in Shreveport. By providing knowledge and support to help clients change their habits, she continues to be amazed by the health results that people can achieve. When not teaching, she makes sure she has no spare time by bouncing between homeschooling her kids, walking the dog, cooking and biking with her family, reading, blogging, and traveling.</span></p> <h4><strong>In this episode we discuss:</strong></h4> <ul> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">Safety</span></li> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">Healthcare and hope</span></li> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">Converting hope into change</span></li> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">The deal with dairy</span></li> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">The good components of dairy</span></li> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">Casein</span></li> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">Lactose</span></li> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">Dairy, disease and illnesses</span></li> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">Quality of life without dairy</span></li> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">Transitioning away from dairy</span></li> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">Non-dairy alternatives</span></li> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">Homemade recipes</span></li> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">Taking to children</span></li> </ul> <p> </p>

5 Snack Foods To Bring To Social Gatherings - PTP198.mp3
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;"><img class= "alignright wp-image-6702 size-medium" style="float: right;" title= "5 Snack Foods To Bring To Social Gatherings" src= "http://planttrainers.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/PTP198-300x300.png" alt="5 Snack Foods To Bring To Social Gatherings" width="300" height="300" />Snack foods...Ah, the communal gathering of children coming together to enjoy a snack prepared by one family that must meet the allergy requirements of the school, the tastebuds of younglings and respect the nutritional values of all the other families. Wait a minute. There is no way to make every kid happy. It’s unlikely many families have nutritional standards and it may also be hard to meet all those standards. Having said that, more and more families are making changes in their diets whether they are still eating animal products or not. Many families are choosing foods that are less processed and contain less additives...it’s a slow process, but because of people like you that are making an effort to better your lives, liking Facebook posts, sharing podcasts and spreading the word, it’s happening.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;"><br /> At the end of the day I know what it’s like to be the teacher and the parent in this situation. The teacher wants it to be fun for the kids, make it easier for the parents to not have to give snack foods daily and expose the kids to things they would not normally be fed and have them be risk takers. On the other hand, as a parent, it is MY responsibility to feed my child and depending on their age choose what goes into their little bodies. It’s an area of stress because I don’t know what they will be exposed to and then want or even give up other foods because they have tasted fat, sugar and salt on a level they haven’t before.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">My child is also gluten free so I know he will often not be able to take part in some of the snack foods. At the end of the day, eating together is a skill we must master, as that experience is always present and maybe your child will come home finally loving clementines!</span></p> <h4><strong>This week’s question:</strong></h4> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Lindsay Asks: "</span><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Hey Plant Trainers, I need to send peanut-free, pre-packaged snack foods to my child’s school for the whole class to enjoy. What do you recommend?"</span></em></p>

Never Binge Again with Glenn Livingston Ph.D. - PTP197.mp3
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "http://planttrainers.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/PTP197.png"> <img class="alignright wp-image-6725 size-medium" style= "float: right;" title= "Never Binge Again with Glenn Livingston Ph.D. - PTP197" src= "http://planttrainers.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/PTP197-300x300.png" alt="Never Binge Again with Glenn Livingston Ph.D. - PTP197" width= "300" height="300" /></a>In today's episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast we talk to Dr. Glenn Livingston about how to Never Binge Again. He takes us through his own health journey and how binging on chocolate and other commercially designed foods left him overweight and unhappy. In his Book, Never Binge Again, he describes the coaching process he uses to help people stop binge eating and to start having a healthy relationship with food. We talk about his “inner pig” and how visualization and actionable steps helped him in the process of never binging again!</span></p> <p>Glenn Livingston, Ph.D. is a veteran psychologist and was the long time CEO of a multi-million dollar consulting firm which has serviced several Fortune 500 clients in the food industry. You may have seen his (or his company's) previous work, theories, and research in major periodicals like The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Chicago Sun Times, The Indiana Star Ledger, The NY Daily News, American Demographics, or any of the other major media outlets you see on this page. You may also have heard him on ABC, WGN, and/or CBS radio, or UPN TV.</p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Disillusioned by what traditional psychology had to offer overweight and/or food obsessed individuals, Dr. Glenn Livingston spent several decades researching the nature of bingeing and overeating via work with his own patients AND a self-funded research program with more than 40,000 participants. Most important, however, was his own personal journey out of obesity and food prison to a normal, healthy weight and a much more lighthearted relationship with food.</span></p> <h4><strong>In this episode we discuss:</strong></h4> <ul> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">Exercise bulimia</span></li> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">Getting to now  </span></li> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">The story you tell yourself</span></li> <li>Visualization</li> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">What is binge eating, overeating</span></li> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">Food addiction</span></li> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">Cravings</span><span style= "font-weight: 400;"><br /></span></li> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">Tasting that tropical local fruit</span> <span style="font-weight: 400;"><br /></span></li> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">Big Foods</span><span style= "font-weight: 400;"><br /></span></li> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">Rules and decisions</span> <span style="font-weight: 400;"><br /></span></li> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">Will power</span> <span style= "font-weight: 400;"><br /></span></li> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">Fear and powerlessness vs commitment</span> <span style="font-weight: 400;"><br /> </span></li> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;">Individuality</span></li> <li>Never Binge Again</li> </ul>

Turmeric The Spice of Life - PTP196.mp3
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "http://planttrainers.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/PTP196.png"> <img class="alignright wp-image-6678 size-medium" style= "float: right;" title="Turmeric, The Spice of Life - PTP196" src= "http://planttrainers.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/PTP196-300x300.png" alt="Turmeric, The Spice of Life - PTP196" width="300" height= "300" /></a>So let’s talk turmeric. Yes the benefits are many. This ancient spice has been used for years for many things because it has so many powers. Before conventional medicine, there were plants. Back in the day, people who suffered from major inflammation, pain and fatigue were often treated with Birch bark (which was like taking ibuprofen) or ginger (which I talk about all the time) or another one of my favorites, turmeric. Today, people are quick to take an Advil or Tylenol to help with inflammation and pain, but do we know the long-term effects of using those over the counter medications?</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">You can actually buy turmeric in the powder form in most grocery stores these days or you can opt for the actual root in many health food stores. Be cautious when using turmeric as it tends to stain things orange (especially when handling the root).</span></p> <h4><strong>This week’s question:</strong></h4> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Avi asks: “</span><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Hey Plant Trainers, I have a foodie question for you. I’ve been reading about the benefits of turmeric and was overwhelmed. Where can I buy turmeric and what can I use it with? Basically I just don’t know what to do with it!</span></em><span style="font-weight: 400;">”</span></p>

Dealing with Emotions & The Short Film "Just Breathe" with Julie Bayer Salzman - PTP195.mp3
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "http://planttrainers.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/PTP195.png"> <img class="alignright wp-image-6713 size-medium" style= "float: right;" title= "Dealing with Emotions & The Short Film Just Breathe with Julie Bayer Salzman - PTP195" src= "http://planttrainers.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/PTP195-300x300.png" alt= "Dealing with Emotions & The Short Film Just Breathe with Julie Bayer Salzman - PTP195" width="300" height="300" /></a>In today's episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast we talk about dealing with emotions and the short film "Just Breathe" with Julie Bayer Salzman. We were first intrigued by Julie and her husband Josh's films, "Just breathe" and "Release". As school teachers, we quickly understood that this was more than just a tool for children...it was a lesson for all. In our conversation, we talk to Julie about our emotions and the idea of emotional intelligence. We explore how teaching our children early about being mindful about their feelings can help keep their emotional levels stay strong throughout their lifetime. You’ll be sure to get so many ideas on how you can start to calm yourself and react better in stressful situations.</span></p> <p>A lover of powerful stories with rich imagery, Julie spent the first part of her career gaining a solid understanding of the nuts and bolts of commercial production. For over ten years, she produced and oversaw countless commercial campaigns for others before moving into writing and directing projects of her own at Wavecrest Films.</p> <p>She and her partner Josh Salzman made their directorial debut with “Time & Tide”, a documentary about the impact of globalization and global warming on the tiny South Pacific nation of Tuvalu. The film garnered numerous film festival awards, screened internationally, and was broadcast in the US on PBS.</p> <p>Julie's sensitivity to subject and subject matter was fully realized and recognized in the widely celebrated short film “Just Breathe” - a film about the power of mindfulness to transform anger (as articulated by a group of elementary school kids). The unscripted piece was showcased on Oprah's Super Soul Sunday program in April 2015, plays internationally at children's film festivals and has so far been translated into Spanish, Italian, German and Hungarian.</p> <p>Currently, Julie is raising money to do a series of short films about Mindfulness, as well as a film about toxic breast milk in Inuit women in the Arctic. She is writing an animated screenplay based on the true story of the two homeless dogs she and her family adopted,. Julie is developing commercial projects centered on sustainable and progressive businesses. When she’s not working you can usually find her wandering in the hills with her camera in hand and dogs in tow, hanging out with her tribe or just at home digging in the dirt.</p> <h4><strong>In this episode we discuss:</strong></h4> <ul> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Moments in nature</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Getting into film</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Creating positive social impact</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Commercial positive impact</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">"Just Breathe"</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Emotions in children and adults</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Emotional intelligence</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Mindfulness</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Expressing emotion</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">How to use mindfulness before reacting</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Where to start</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Mindfulness lighting up creativity</span></li> </ul>

Vibeka...this is a doozy! There are so many ways to deal with our kids' choices to eat animal products when they are with friends or other family members. It all comes down to your family values with regards to health, animal rights and also your parenting style. The short answer is as long as you're calm, cool and respectful, there really is no wrong answer, only ones that are more suited for your unique situation. How I may handle my plant-based kids may be completely different from everyone else in the Healthy Plant-Based Families Facebook group!</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">I really had to think hard on this one and I put together three answers for today. To all the listeners, these answers are not intended to limit you to what I talk about today. They are meant to inspire you to think deeply about how you would handle your plant-based kids and certainly have a conversation around the topic with any other parents or guardians your kids may have. The age of your kids may come into effect here and you may also find that your own personal reaction to this situation will evolve over time. So which are you...Ron, </span><span style="font-weight: 400;">Harry or Hermione?</span></p> <h4><strong>This week’s question:</strong></h4> <p>Vibeka Asks: "<em>Hey Plant Trainers, How should I deal with my plant-based kids choices to eat animal products when they are with friends or other family members?"</em></p>

A concussion is a brain injury. A person doesn’t have to lose consciousness to have a concussion. Symptoms can often be very subtle. Proper protective gear should always be worn (i.e. helmet for biking or contact sports, mouthguards, etc...). A concussion may be caused by a direct blow to the head, face, neck, or anywhere else that causes a severe or sudden movement to the head or neck. Getting clearance from a medical doctor should be required prior to the person injured being able to return to participate in the activity.</span></p> <h4>This week's question:</h4> <p>Ryan asks: <span style="font-weight: 400;">“<em>Hey Plant Trainers, I think I may have a concussion, but I’m not sure of the actual signs and symptoms. I’m going to the doctor, but I’m sure he will tell me to just take some time off and rest. What should I know about managing my possible concussion?</em>”</span></p> <h4><strong>Concussion awareness - signs & symptoms:</strong></h4> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Confusion, disorientation, Loss of consciousness, Headache, Dizziness, Nausea, Vomiting, Loss of Balance, Blurry vision, Ringing in the ears, Slow or slurred speech, seeing “stars”, feeling dazed or confused, emotional or personality changes.</span></p> <p><strong>Concussion Management & Rehabilitation:</strong></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">You should never return to play while symptomatic. When someone displays any signs or symptoms of a concussion, one should not return to participate in a game, practice or activity. Make sure that the person is not left alone and monitoring for any negative changes is very important to watch out for. Make sure the person gets checked by a doctor.</span></p> <p>Here are 6 steps before returning to activity if you have been diagnosed with a concussion and you must be asymptomatic for 24 hours between each step (these steps are designed for competitive athletes, but anyone with a head injury can follow these guidelines):</p> <ol> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">No activity, complete rest. Once asymptomatic, proceed to step 2.</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Light aerobic exercise such as walking or stationary cycling.</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Sport-specific training (i.e. running in soccer, skating in hockey).</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Non-contact training drills. Can start resistance training.</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Full-contact training (after medical clearance).</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Game play</span></li> </ol> <p>Remember...the most important thing is concussion awareness and ensuring you are safe to resume activity.</p>

Julie talks to us about how most detox plans are made for people living in warm climates and how people of the north are put at a strong disadvantage by taking part in many mainstream detox plans in the cold months. Not everyone's body can handle those cold wet foods, so Julie tied together her knowledge of the ancient wisdom of both India and China to create this healing plan. Julie was on our show before way back on episode 71 of the Plant Trainers Podcast when we talked about</span> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">autoimmune diseases, allergies & foods that heal</span> <span style="font-weight: 400;">.

Her award-winning bestseller, Meals That Heal Inflammation, has helped over 100,000 people enjoy allergy-free foods that taste great and assist their body in the healing process. Her second bestseller, Slimming Meals That Heal, explores why inflammation causes weight gain and how anti-inflammatory superfoods shed pounds without dieting.</p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Julie's latest book, The Hot Detox, embraces the ancient wisdom of India and Asia, applying the time-tested intelligence of warming up your body's core. Inspired by hot yoga practices and backed by 600 peer-reviewed scientific studies, Julie's detox system will help your body to gently rid many of the toxins you experience in our modern world.

While we were in Marshall Texas for Healthfest, we sat down with Howard Jacobson (from the Plant Yourself Podcast), Josh LaJaunie (you may have seen him on the cover of Runner’s World Magazine) and Sid Garza-Hillman (from the Approaching The Natural Podcast) for an unscripted, unplanned roundtable conversation. You should be warned that we were literally sitting in a warehouse room while it was pouring rain on the tin roof. </span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">It was very interesting to see the different perspectives of all these great coaches on the subject of mindset. It is clear that mindset, accountability and practical knowledge is something we all feel our clients need more of. Whether you have tried every diet out there, have begun your plant-based journey or are ready to take someone under your wing, we’re sure you’ll find motivation and inspiration about mindset, which will help you and others along with transformation of any kind.

The knee is actually the most unstable joint in our body and gets put through an extreme amount of pressure especially when we do activities like running or jumping. Actually, during activities like running and jumping, the knee must withstand forces two to four times an individual’s own body weight. Think about that for a moment. Because of that small fact, the knee is a prime target for injury.</span> </p> <h4><strong>This week’s question:</strong></h4> <p>Andrew asks: <span style="font-weight: 400;">“<em>Hey Plant Trainers, I’ve been running a bit lately and have starting to feel some knee pain.

She has come so far working with Plant Trainers and for her it’s not just about being told what to do and when...but, she is really catching on to being mindful of the foods she is choosing to surround herself with as part of her health journey. Deciding on a nut butters is something I love to talk about. When people type nut butter, they often make typos and it reads "but butter"...nothing makes me laugh harder. But on a more serious note, the nut or seed butter you choose may have a bigger effect on your but and your health than you think!</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">So consider these ideas when shopping for nut or seed butters next time.</span></p> <h4><strong>This week’s question:</strong></h4> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Roxann Asks: </span>“<em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Hey Plant Trainers, which nut butter is better to use, Peanut butter or other kinds?</span></em>”</p>

His latest book, The Ripple Effect: Sleep Better, Eat Better, Move Better, Think Better comes out April 4th, 2017. We discuss the many contributing factors of this book and how it affects your life.</p> <p>As a scientist, broadcaster, author, coach and athlete, Dr. Greg Wells has dedicated his career to understanding human performance and how the human body responds to extreme conditions.</p> <p>Dr. Wells is an assistant professor of kinesiology at the University of Toronto where he studies elite sport performance. He also serves as an associate scientist of physiology and experimental medicine at The Hospital for Sick Children where he leads the Exercise Medicine Research Program. There, he and his team explore how to use exercise to prevent, diagnose and treat chronic illnesses in children. Previously, he served as the director of sport science at the Canadian Sport Institute and taught elite sport coaches at the National Coaching Institute.<br /> Throughout his career, Dr. Wells has coached, trained and inspired dozens of elite athletes to win medals at World Championships, the Commonwealth Games and the Olympics. He has studied athletic performance in some of the most severe conditions on the planet, like the Andes Mountains and the Sahara Desert.</p> <p>Dr. Wells has had his own personal experience with the challenges and opportunities of adversity and human extremes. Late in his high school career, he broke his neck in a freak accident while swimming in the ocean and was in a halo brace before undergoing neurosurgery. Told by his doctor that he would never perform as an athlete again, he went on to compete at the international level in swimming.

Shannon shares her health history with us, but it’s more like her unhealthy history. She has too many diseases and too many medications to mention here. She was wheelchair bound and a perfect candidate for disability, but neither of those options were acceptable. Shannon walks us through her thought process and in the most inspiring way sends the message to never settle with life if it is not the way you are willing to accept. Today Shannon is an avid runner and monitors doctors, nurses, athletes and organizes groups so everyone can benefit from a healthy plant-based lifestyle.</span></p> <p>Shannon has over 27 years of experience in the medical field, including 18 years as a registered nurse in a multitude of roles.

Shannon is currently an RN at the Beaumont Cardiac Rehabilitation centre in Michigan, in a unit that she helped build up from the ground level with a team of incredible coworkers. While working with patients to achieve their own maximal health and wellness, she realized the importance of her own health and the impact to teach others to live successfully with any type of chronic disease. She has lost over 85 pounds and experienced many benefits of following a healthier lifestyle, including an increase in energy level, reduced pain, and fewer disease flare ups. She enjoys all types of sports and loves supporting her own children at their sporting events.

Is Quinoa A Carb or Protein? - PTP178.mp3
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "http://planttrainers.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/PTP178.png"> <img class="alignright wp-image-6231 size-medium" style= "float: right;" src= "http://planttrainers.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/PTP178-300x300.png" alt="" width="300" height="300" /></a>We loved this question as it was sent to us in the moment of a heated family dispute over whether or not is quinoa is a carb or a protein. We are not really sure who the winner is, but you should really have a good idea about how to go about looking at the question by the end of the 5 minutes.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">This is a question that comes up often for many foods. This whole idea of categorizing them into absolutes is damaging to the foods’ reputation and our health. It’s important to look at a food, if it has or has not been processed, what other nutritional value it holds, and what affect it has on a particular person’s body. After all, every-body is different. In this episode we talk about overlap, how not all foods are created equal and how the manufacturing process really changes the value of the food. Let us know who you think won the #debateoverquinoa!</span></p> <h4><strong>This week’s question:</strong></h4> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Sherri asks: “<em>My son and I are having a debate whether quinoa is a protein or a carb?</em></span><em><span style= "font-weight: 400;"><br /></span></em><span style= "font-weight: 400;"><em>I know as a vegetarian quinoa is a source of protein.  My son is trying to prove to me that quinoa has equal carbs as a pancake mix or granola bar. I would like to get the facts straight on this debate with him.</em>”</span></p>
