Rank #1: PPP 15: Tara Kemp: On eating raw, forks over knives and self love

Podcast cover
Read more
It's not every day that you speak to someone whose light shines so bright. Tara is a beacon of positivity, love and authenticity but at the same time she is honest and has experienced what it takes to truly accept yourself. We met over social media and clicked instantly and ever since then we have stayed in contact. We are lucky enough to have her on the podcast this week to talk about her experience with food and why eating raw works for her, her experience of working for forks over knives and most importantly her experience with self-love. I think its this part of the podcast that is super inspiring and my hope is that it connects with some of you listening out there. Thank you for listening and enjoy :)

Rank #2: PPP 31 Woman Talk: A deep dive into periods, natural birth control, shaving and more

Podcast cover
Read more
First off males, listen to this you’ll learn a lot! Secondly the aim of this podcast is to expand your knowledge and beliefs. We should be constantly growing and questioning our values. This is done by challenging norms and thinking outside the box. This week we do that. I bring on my partner Rosalie to talk about her journey from doing what society expected her to do, to completely reevaluating and then flipping her beliefs and practices. Her basis is to live more inline and more naturally with her body. This has meant she has gone vegan, started using a menstrual cup, uses a natural birth control method, stopped shaving and wearing make-up. In this episode we talk about that and specifically we challenge the stigma around periods and why you should consider a using a cup. We take a deep dive into using the pill for birth control and why Rosalie now uses a natural form of birth control. Rosalie offer her experience and I back it up with science. So please enjoy this episode and allow your mind to be expanded!

Rank #6: PPP 63: Setareh Khatibi – The Power of the Potato Diet

Podcast cover
Read more
It’s not every day that I meet someone with a stellar sense of humor then find myself sitting down with them and their mother to discuss both of their incredible health journeys. But that’s exactly what this conversation is. Both Setareh and her mum Alena have had massive health journeys – and what do they swear is the reason for their health? The potato diet!

This is a real life genuine story about how incredibly powerful the body is when we put the right food into it. I urge you or your family that it's never too late to get healthy and this is a perfect example of that.

Please check out Setareh on YouTube she’s hilarious.

Rank #7: PPP 24: How to transition to a plant-based diet

Podcast cover
Read more
On the Plant Power podcast I’ve interviewed some incredible people, I’ve discussed some interesting topics and I do my best each week to bring you incredible thought provoking content. But sometimes we need to go back to basics and because I’m a lot more knowledgeable now and I’m a better podcaster I thought it was finally time to do an episode on how to transition comfortably and sustainably to a plant-based diet. So if you are already plant-based this might not exactly for you. But if you know someone who is thinking about it, or needs help with it, or you just want to get through to someone then this is the perfect podcast for you! This is a great resource anyone can use to transition to getting more plant powered.

In this episode we talk about:
- Our stories of how we transitioned to a PBD
- What the three pillars of a plant-based diet are and why you should choose one
- Why you should set and intention first then take it slow
- Practical tips for making the transition easy and digestible within your everyday life
- Why you should practice crowding out not cutting out
- Why its better to be a cheese eating vegan then not vegan at all
- How to eat out
- How to deal with you family
- Why you should just enjoy the journey

Rank #11: PPP 46: Kayla Greenville: On the inside work it takes to accept yourself and thrive

Podcast cover
Read more
We all hear the stories of the millionaires who have it all but are deeply depressed, or the addict who hit rock bottom, found themselves and are now monks. These stories are great, they are constant reminders that happiness can’t be found externally, but they are hard to relate to. Most of us don’t want to hit rock bottom to figure this out, but still we spend our lives searching for something more. After doing well at university, getting the perfect job and moving to Australia, Kayla was happy but she asked herself one day, is this all there is? Asking this question has led Kayla down a path of many failures and successes trying to figure this out.

And that’s a story I think we can all relate to. This is an incredible conversation about the inside work, trust in the unknown and acceptance of yourself it takes to find and live your purpose. This conversation won’t change your life but it might just set you down the right path.

Rank #14: PPP 64: Mindfulness tools and practices for surviving today’s world with Tara Kemp

Podcast cover
Read more
This is Tara’s fourth time on the Plant Power Podcast, and for a good reason. Her intelligence laced with her ability to really feel and be real and honest is a lethal combination for self acceptance. In this conversation we discourse over the tools, techniques and Tara has used to cultivate a positive mindset of gratitude, mindfulness and self love. We go into her personal experience of over coming an eating disorder and how it comes down to be OK with yourself.

After listening to our conversation I want you to really ask yourself – am I ok? Are the thoughts I’m having cultivating joy or sadness? Think about this then I want you to tell yourself I am ok – because you are.

Rank #15: PPP 51: From Slaughterhouse Worker To Vegan Bodybuilder With Brayden Green

Podcast cover
Read more
This week we go long form, we get real with Brayden Green, who fresh out of school, at the age of 17, found himself working at a slaughterhouse. It wasn’t long into the experience that he came face to face with where meat really comes from. This experience set of a cascade of events which saw Brayden going from typical kiwi bloke to full blown vegan.

This conversation is about owning your values and truly standing in what it means to be a masculine male – a compassionate warrior.
We delve into Brayden’s story, then we get into the juicy details about what it means to build muscle, strength, fitness and integrity on plants.

If you're a long time listener of the show then you know I love diving deep into conversations that go beyond the everyday and into the stuff that blows your mind.

- Growing up in a village in the Philippines
- The role and importance of community
- Shamanism
- How to deal with others around you who aren't on the same path

But like every Kiw,i Lisa is a genuine, good-hearted being and that’s what I loved most about this conversation and her stories.

Rank #20: PPP 41: Aaron Brunet MasterChef winner:overcoming depression w/ purpose, joy & living with integrity

Podcast cover
Read more
After meeting about a month ago Aaron has become a great friend! On the surface he is the 2013 Master Chef winner gone ‘vegan eco warrior’. But his story is so, so much more than that. Starting life as the outcast guitar playing kid, his love of computers led him down the IT consultant path. And life seemed pretty sweet. Setting his own hours, good money, living in beautiful Raglan he was set. But under everything he was depressed. It wasn’t until he discovered the art and practice of sour dough bread baking that he reignited his passion and purpose to create tasty food. Following this path, he found himself on one of New Zealand’s most popular reality shows – MasterChef. Diving into the luxury, high pressure, microcosm environment of TV, cooking, and fame – Aaron was able to channel his passion and drive to take out the show. Not long after, and dealing with one life under the spotlight of success, paradoxically against a life of depression and unworthiness bubbling under the surface, as he put it, his egg cracked. This conversation is about depression and how true joy never comes from the outside but within. It's about the ability we have as humans to really focus and develop the flow state. It's about facing your truths and how living with integrity means peeling back the layers and living up to your values and beliefs. It's Aarons humbling journey to what we are all searching for, knowingly, or unknowingly – purpose. A journey with no destination.

Enjoy this conversation and if you live in New Zealand, look forward to some awesome events, like plant based dinners and meals that Aaron and I will be holding.

Peace, Namaste and Kia Ora
