Welcome back to our second spin around the listener Q&A merry-go-round!
Due to popular demand (and all the great questions flooding our inbox), we’re happy to once again banter on the subjects, issues and topics you want addressed.
In this episode Julie and I cover a ton of ground, name dropping resources like an over-caffeinated publicist. Here’s a top down view on the landscape:
- The importance of the morning ritual to optimize your day;
- Inspirational and educational books, websites, podcasts & other online resources;
- Resources to facilitate your shift to a Plantpower lifestyle;
- A few (very brief) thoughts on high carb / low carb / gluten and nutritional density;
- More brief thoughts on certain foods to avoid and others to embrace; and
- A few closing thoughts on running volume.
No need to break out pen and paper. Due to the hard work of my trusty right hand Chris Swan, everything is detailed, itemized and hyperlinked for your convenience in the below show notes. So just sit back and enjoy.
Special thanks and shoutout to everyone who submitted questions. Keep them coming!
