It’s hard not to be a Gene Baur fan. Most will know him as the co-founder of Farm Sanctuary, author, and speaker, but unless you follow Gene closely, you might not realize that as a BQ-marathoner and Ironman, he embodies what NMA is all about.
Gene’s beautiful new vegan-lifestyle-guide-meets-cookbook, Living the Farm Sanctuary Life, hits the shelves next week. In this interview on No Meat Athlete Radio we discuss Gene’s athletic accomplishments, whether eating a plant-based diet can help us live longer, the small steps approach to change, and the theme of mindfulness that runs throughout the new book.
It’s also my pleasure to share a recipe from the new book: Tacos with Salted Grilled Plantains, Salsa Verde, and Pepitas! And — gigantic bonus alert — it features homemade corn tortillas, which just this week I’ve started making (and become mildly obsessed about). You’ll find the recipe at the end of this post below the interview.
Enjoy the interview, and don’t miss Gene’s appearance on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart on April 6th!
