Ben Davis was once the guy that felt he needed meat in every meal in order to perform athletically. But, after he really thought about his morals and where they aligned, he realized that his food choices didn't reflect. It didn't take him long to understand that the meat he once thought of as fuel, was actually hindering him from growth. Today, Ben is the Council Chair for the Plant Based World Conference & Expo and invites you to check out the next event!
Charity Morgan is back! Earlier this year, on Episode 41 we talked all about her husband (Tennessee Titans Outside Linebacker, Derrick Morgan) switched to a plant-based lifestyle and how this helped his athletic performance and recovery time. Since then, a pretty good amount of the players have also adopted the vegan lifestyle (at least during NFL season). Today, we get an update on how the players are doing, but also learn a little more about the badass babe that started this plant-based movement!
One of the things Charity stresses is that you don't have to be a chef, or even a cook to experiment in the kitchen and make good vegan food. Fun Fact: Charity is a faster swimmer than Derrick 😉
Kaiser Permanente's Dr. Raymond Berdugo, and Chris Heslin talk about the implementation of whole food plant-based nutrition into the doctor's office!

Todd Anderson, Brandy Espi and Cody Blake make up a group of influencers called "Spoiled Vegans". They created the group to show others that not all vegans are the same! Don't get them wrong, the name "spoiled" isn't coming from a pretentious, "better than others" attitude, it comes from the humility they've achieved realizing how spoiled they are to be in San Diego and have so many great vegan resources!

Certified Holistic Health Coach, Lauren Lobley talks about how removing dairy from her life instantly led to a loss of 10 pounds, and how removing meat helped her with her longterm digestive issues. Soon after, she delved into the idea of "food as medicine" as she experimented with her own diet. When she first started eating more plant-based, she wasn't sure how to replace the animal proteins on her plate with something healthier.
Today, Lauren is the author of the cookbook, "The Accidental Paleo: Easy Vegetarian Recipes for a Paleo Lifestyle", which is a book that literally replaces the meat with healthier, plant-based alternatives! Her book even includes a section which mentions items to deck out your pantry with to make your time spent in the kitchen far more efficient!
