ep212

Have you ever taken a life-changing smoke break? NMA’s own Susan Lacke has, when her old boss, Carlos, convinced her to start working out with him.

Twenty months later, she was running her first Ironman triathlon, writing for NMA, and launching a new career. And it was Carlos’s never-wavering support that she believes made it all possible.

In today’s replay episode, we speak with Susan about triathlons, epic friendships, her book Life’s Too Short To Go So F*cking Slow, and the power of supporting someone through their goals.

Or in the case of today’s episode, poop. Well, more specifically, fiber (and the effects it has on your body).

See, it all started with a post Sid wrote earlier this week on the only healthy eating rules you ever need to follow. In it, he shared four rules, or guidelines, that if followed, will almost guarantee you’re eating a healthy, well-balanced diet.

Marathon Läufer

Today’s episode is a little different…

It gets personal.

If you’ve trained for a sporting event, chances are you’ve experienced at least some level of pre-race (or match, game, etc.) anxiety. You know… that overwhelming feeling the days and hours heading into a race that leads to questions and doubts on your training and ability.

In today’s episode, we talk about that pre-race anxiety, how we address it, and what we do when it’s no longer related to a race, but to life in general.

How We Feed Our Kids

ep236

As adult vegans, we face certain challenges when traveling, dining at restaurants, or whenever we’re outside our normal routines. But we figure it out — packing our own meals or snacking on nuts and fruit if we need to.

But what does it look like when kids are involved?

They’re pickier and not as adaptable, and the last thing we want to do is feed them junk just to get by.

In today’s episode we explore the ins and outs of how we feed our kids, both during our normal at-home routines, and while on summer vacation or traveling.

Here’s what we talk about in today’s episode:

  • Matt’s beach trip food tips.
  • The allure of junk food when in a pinch.
  • How to handle long car trips.
  • 19-month-old Eliza’s favorite salad.
  • Healthy snacks for kids.
  • The go-to easy treat Matt loves.
