Vocal Gravel

I wanted to like this podcast as I am new to plant based eating, however, I just CAN’T listen to the vocal gravel anymore! Please, I recommend you get a vocal coach immediately! I don’t know if you think it makes you sound intelligent, but it comes across condescending, arrogant, and patronizing. The topics sound interesting as listed, but then the content is boring and flat.

A treat!

Rank #6: TPP 055: Being Vegan on the Road and Traveling Mindfully

Podcast cover
Read more

With travel so accessible these days,

it is all the more imperative that we take a mindful approach when embarking on our journeys.

Having just returned from an incredible trip to Kyrgyzstan, Isabelle and I cherished the country’s pristine nature. From hiking and biking, to staying in yurts in the mountains or with local families in villages, we got a taste for an on-the-ground experience.  As tourism is on the rise in Kyrgyzstan, the opportunity to explore its beautiful landscape will be increasingly accessible.  This benefits the local economy, but comes at the risk of pollution, improper waste disposal, and a strain on local food supply chains.  Unfortunately, Kyrgyzstan is no stranger to pollution from foreigners, as they’ve experienced several deplorable chemical spills in their gorgeous alpine lakes due to foreign mining activities.

All this to say, we are raising our awareness of how to travel mindfully, while at the same time experiencing and respecting the lands and cultures of others.  When it comes to eating plant based in foreign places, this yields its own sense of adventure and determination – and Kyrgyzstan has a knack for finding ways to put bits of meat in almost every local dish.  Navigating those conversations on top of a language barrier, presents an opportunity to share some of our own convictions too.

We hope you enjoy a reflection about 2 of our favorite topics – travel and plant based nutrition – and think about the impact you wish to make when setting foot aground a foreign land.

Rank #15: TPP 054: How Fears and Plants Fueled Noah’s Ironman Journey

Podcast cover
Read more

In November 2018 when Noah committed to doing an Ironman Triathlon in July of 2019, a high degree of mystery lay ahead of those 9 months.  He fear all the unknowns, including the possibility of failure in both the athletic endeavor as well as in his personal life.  Inviting those fears to have a seat at the plant-based dinner table, of course, ultimately paved the way for both hard lessons learned and personal growth.

Eating a whole foods plant-based diet as pillar during the training presented it’s own obstacles too.  For example, Noah didn’t use any of the “Gu” products and other processed foods or energy drinks, so he created his own home-brewed blends of sustenance and electrolytes.  During the highest training loads, he had to find ways to add even more-nutrient dense foods into his diet to ensure he was meeting the calorie and protein requirements his body demanded.

There is no such thing as balance.  Rather, proactively scheduling activities and relationship-time around the training proved critical.  At times Noah struggled with prioritizing his personal relationships while training, and eventually learned that “you don’t just find time,” but instead he had to carve out time to ensure the nourishment of those personal relationships.  As he discovered, Ironman training is anything but a solo adventure, and it takes a village to accomplish this goal.

Podcast cover

Everything we eat these days is in some way processed.

Even the fruit and veggies, picked from the fields, will undergo some type of treatment.

As you know, we think about food a lot. And you probably also know that we are big advocates of real, whole, minimally treated food vs relying on processed foods. But what does processed even mean? In this episode, we will tell you all about it and share how we read labels at the grocery store, what foods we gravitate to and how we navigate feeding ourselves with real food, without missing out on social occasions.
