Supplements for Vegans: What Do We Need? (Rewind)

Do vegans need supplements to stay healthy? What nutrients do whole plant-based foods actually lack?

There’s a lot of controversy surrounding those questions, and the answer isn’t always simple.

In today’s episode, Matt sits down with Matt Tullman — an author and entrepreneur who has set a goal for a third of the population to go plant-based by 2030 — to break it all down.

Eating Plant-Strong with Rip and Jane Esselstyn of the Engine 2 Diet

Long-time friends of NMA, Rip and Jane Esselstyn, know a thing or two about cooking healthy meals people actually want to eat. They’ve written best-selling books and designed an entire diet philosophy, the Engine 2 Diet, around the subject.

The 5 Big Keys to Habit Change

When it comes to habit change, there are five keys to being successful. Keys ? or rules ? that when not followed, are often the reasons why most people fail to make new health and fitness habits work.

In today’s episode, we share a clip from an Academy seminar, outlining those keys to creating habits that stick, and provide real life examples from my own successes (and failures) to help you put these rules into action.

The Big Holiday Extravaganza of 2018

One of my favorite episodes each year is our big, epic, vegan holiday extravaganza, where Matt and I discuss our wish lists, favorite seasonal films, and share what we plan to cook and drink over the holidays. 

This year, things are a little different. With Matt’s family traveling to Spain for the holiday, the conversation shifted a bit to traditions, travel, and dealing with family expectations.

But don’t you worry, Matt still shares his (ridiculous, if you ask me) Christmas movie list.

The Guilt Free Running Slump (Rewind)

Every runner goes through slumps. Life gets busy, the weather gets hot (or cold), and whatever “running mojo” looks like to you, you’ve lost it.

I’m no different, and I’m in the midst of a slump now: the training I had planned for a fall marathon never really got off the ground, and my running for the past few months has been next to non-existent.

But something is different this time. This time, I don’t feel guilty about it.

Somehow (meditation, maybe?) I’m at peace with the slump. I’m not beating myself up for letting the marathon goal slip away. I can see this for what it is, without judgement, and in a strange way I feel free ? with a newfound excitement about other types of training.

As it turns out, co-host Doug is dealing with a running slump of his own. Except he’s one week away from a 50K, and his training looks a lot different from mine.

In today’s episode, we talk about our slumps and how we’re embracing the lack of motivation instead of fighting it. If you’ve been in a slump recently, or you’re in one right now, this one is for you.
