How Do You Define True Health? Plus: Ruminations On Aging, Death & The Importance of Open Communication

“Only you can tell the world what is locked inside your heart, what is yearning to come out. Eating plant-based and becoming healthy and understanding that you can clear yourself and connect with your authentic self by eating vital, vibrant healthy foods and taking care of yourself is the beginning step.”

Julie Piatt

I’m hitting a groove.

Although I definitely have some sustainability concerns about posting two weekly editions of the show (have I said how much work this is?), I’m keeping my promise. So here we are again with another installment of Ask Me Anything — a twist on my typical guest interview format where we answer questions submitted by you, the listener.

But this week it’s a twist on that twist.

In addition to entertaining a few listener inquiries, I gave Julie the latitude to raise a few issues and themes currently on her mind. I think the recipe worked — it’s quite a revelatory exchange.

This conversation explores:

  • Appreciating Diversity Among RRP Guests
  • How To Define True Health
  • What It Means To Live In Balance
  • Eating In Harmony With Nature
  • Perspectives On Aging
  • Mindful Ruminations on Death
  • Cultural Objectification Of Women
  • Successful Marriage & Open Communication

The show concludes with Mother of Mine, written and performed by Julie (aka SriMati), accompanied by our sons Tyler & Trapper Piatt.

I sincerely hope you enjoy our discussion.
