“The mission is to educate people and I think the more we allow people to educate themselves the more they feel empowered to make lifestyle choices that work for them.”
This is a special mid-week episode of the podcast featuring a panel discussion that took place at the Miami Seed Food and Wine Festival in November 2016 between me and Marco Borges, the CEO of 22 Days Nutrition – a plant-based nutrition products and meal delivery service he founded in partnership with Jay-Z and Beyonce.
If you are new to the podcast, I implore you to check out my first conversation with Marco, RRP #195 — it’s great.
Since that day Marco and I have become very close. The real deal with a huge heart, he’s a man truly committed to educating people about health and fitness, while providing them with the best possible organic, plant-based meal service and nutritional supplements.
This a loose, fun, unmoderated off-the-cuff conversation about many things, with a focus on nutrition, fitness and effective strategies for being the best living advocate of a thriving, vibrant lifestyle. Specific topics include:
- practicing non-judgment & the vegan lifestyle
- striving for growth & expansion
- managing perfectionism in business
- the power of conscious consumerism
- living in alignment with your core values
- to compromise or not to compromise
- plant-based at your own pace
NOTE: The audio is wonky (and I’m being kind). Apologies in advance, but this recording was captured on less than stellar audio equipment before a live audience. Nonetheless, I thought it valuable enough to share.
I love this guy and I hope you enjoy our lively banter!
Peace + Plants,
