How To Succeed On A Plant-Based Diet With Lindsay S. Nixon Of Happy Herbivore

I’ve never been much of a chef. So it drives me crazy when someone says something like, “oh, just taste it and see what it needs.”

I flashback to spending all this time in the kitchen trying to fix a sauce that wasn’t turning out.

Here’s what “just see what it needs” looked like to me:

I’d add a little more lemon juice. Blend. Taste. Hmm, that didn’t help much.   So then I’d pick a random spice out of the drawer, smell it, taste it, add it. Blend again. Taste. Hmm, that’s actually a little bit better!   Then I’d add another teaspoon of the spice that was helping. Blend. Taste. OH NO, THIS TASTES AWFUL! HOW DO I FIX IT?   Start the randomly adding and tasting...

Matt could eat hummus and veggies for every meal from now until the end of eternity.

In fact, last year we went on a road trip to the Grand Canyon and California and ate hummus for two weeks straight, three times a day.

I kid you not.

Personally, I like a little more variety every once in a while.

We’ve been especially busy the last few months (we’ve been hard at work creating something special to share with you, details coming in the next few weeks!) and when we’re busy we tend to focus on our go to quick and easy meals.

More accurately, we tend to focus on just one of our quick and easy meals then eat it over and over again.

Dreena Burton Interview - How To Raise Healthy Kids

If you ask me, raising kids is nothing short of heroic.

My brother and his wife just had their fourth, and whenever I visit I am humbled by how much selfless devotion goes into caring for their children.

Regan and I often get questions from parents about how to help their kids eat better, but the truth is that we don’t have any firsthand parenting experience as of yet.

Here in DC, we live close to Regan’s niece and nephew and are blessed to get to spend time with them on a regular basis.

But I’m pretty sure being the fun aunt or uncle isn’t quite the same as raising your own!

So today, I’m thrilled to defer the questions on pregnancy and parenting...

Regan Making A Wrap - Plant-Based Travel

I dream of the day when you can pop into a 7-11 and grab a green juice and a bag of kale chips.

But until then, making progress towards our health and weight loss goals while on the road takes a bit of planning, flexibility and ingenuity.

I cut my teeth on the subject in the most ridiculous way possible.

Imagine this: You’ve just gone plant-based, your best friend (also named Matt) calls you up -- he’s engaged! And there is going to be a bachelor party! And the bachelor party happens to be a 5-day party/rafting trip with 8 other guys!

For me, this was a challenge akin to when I strapped on skis for the first time at an aerial ski jumping camp.

Interview With Thomas Campbell, MD

We have a special interview and book giveaway to share with you today.

But first we wanted to say thank you to everyone who took the time to send us travel questions and well wishes on our move! We made it safe and sound and are enjoying getting settled here in the DC area.

Next time, we’ll go behind the scenes and share all the tips and tricks we use to eat well on the road.

But for now, on to the feature du jour…

If you are at all interested in nutrition, you’ve likely heard of The China Study.

This landmark book has sold over a million copies and the New York Times called it the “most comprehensive large study ever undertaken of the relationship...

Come March, I think it’s safe to say that everyone on the East Coast is eagerly anticipating spring time.

We’re all ready for one jacket instead of three, flowers lining the sidewalks instead of the grey sludge that seems like it will never, ever melt and where the heck are those robins?! They should really be out by now...

Maybe it’s the waiting, maybe it’s the clouds, but come this time every year I’m left a little uninspired and lethargic -- especially in the kitchen.

I no longer want the heavier, foods I craved December through February, but I’m not quite ready to give up the warmth those meals provided.

Soup always seems to be the answer.  It’s light...

Benji Kurtz Lost Over 100 lbs

Last week we talked about going big and breaking through -- looking at what it takes to create massive transformation in one year.

Today, I have the pleasure of sharing with you one such story of transformation.

Benji went plant-based, lost over a hundred pounds, dropped 21 pant-sizes, and brought his cholesterol and blood pressure into normal range.

His story was so compelling that it was picked up by CNN.

I would say that Benji’s story is amazing or incredible, except that after personally supporting dozens of transformations like this, I know that this is just what happens when you change your lifestyle and follow through.

But the reason why I'm...

How To Reach Your Health And Weight Loss Goals This Year

Note: As a complement to this post, I’ve asked Regan to offer a few free 30-minute coaching sessions. I expect these to go fast, so make sure to fill out the application, asap!

Last time we talked about one way to create a breakthrough -- how baby building blocks can remove the barrier to getting started and lead to significant change.

Today, we are taking a very different approach to breaking through. Hail Mary, hallelujah, let's go big!

The year is still new and shiny, and I want to talk about how you can reach your health and weight loss goals before the next holiday season rolls around.

I recently asked what inspires you to eat more plants on your path...

The Best Way To Get Started With Healthy Habits

Congratulations to Heather, the winner of this week’s giveaway! We’ll be in touch to send you a copy of JL Fields' new book Vegan Pressure Cooking.

Now that we’ve done two book giveaways in a row, I have a confession:

 I can’t read!

I used to be a voracious reader, but over the last few years the time that I devote to cozying up with a good book has slowly diminished.

Looking back over the last year, I’ve hardly read anything at all!

I keep ordering interesting books and making big promises to myself, but the days just seem to get away from me.

Fortunately, I make consistent measurable progress, which you can see in the following graph:...

Vegan Pressure Cooker Recipes

Congrats to Rachel and Karen, the winners of last week’s giveaway! We’ll be in touch to send you a copy of Julieanna Hever’s new book The Vegiterranean Diet!

If you didn’t win, don’t fret, because we are hosting another giveaway for you this week!

Details to follow, but first lets pull the curtains, dim the lights, and talk about...planning and organization. After all, is there a sexier topic with which to start the new year?

Oh, you’d rather hear about 102 Fast Health Fixes? (a headline straight from the cover of Women’s Health magazine.) And we wonder why somewhere around 88% of New Year Resolutions fail!

In my mind there is nothing sexier than success,...
