    #62: The Virus Episode: Dealing with the Stress of a Pandemic

    We really kept thinking this Covid-19 lockdown situation would end "any day now" then our podcasting efforts would resume "any day now" too. But alas, here we are, more than two months later, and still on effing lockdown. But I'll be damned if I have to avoid recording podcasts any longer! And what better topic to discuss than good ol' Coronavirus?! Like you're not already sick of talking about it. Believe me, we are too. But we did think that maybe you could use to hear our thoughts on this whole lockdown situation. And more importantly, enjoy some tips on how we deal with the stress of a pandemic and our suggestions for how you can stay both healthy and positive during these strange, strange times.

    #61: How to Love Your Kitchen and Create a Positive Cooking Atmosphere

    #61: How to Love Your Kitchen and Create a Positive Cooking Atmosphere

    Would you describe your kitchen as "bright" and "fresh?" Well apparently that's how it should feel if you want to create a positive kitchen vibe that inspires you to cook healthy food! Yes, on this episode of the podcast, we are discussing how to de-clutter, freshen up and feng shui your kitchen space. And then we're sharing how long it's been since I (Sam) have had sex and which "Wiggles" character we would bang. Random episode? You bet! Still worth a listen? Hell yes.

    #60: Most Frequently Asked Vegan Coaching Questions Answered

    #60: Most Frequently Asked Vegan Coaching Questions Answered

    Being a pro bikini competitor and having worked as a vegan trainer and nutrition coach for over seven years now, I definitely get asked the same exercise and nutrition questions ALL the time. So often that I've even created an "FAQ" document to reference for every time it happens. But I'm sick of copying and pasting that thing! So we thought why not make a podcast episode featuring some of the many FAQs I get asked? Brilliant idea, right? And no doubt, an informative podcast delving into everything from how do I prepare tofu to what is the best thing to eat post-workout. Yes, my meatless meathead brethren, this one's for you. Enjoy!

    #59: New Year, New YOU

    #59: New Year, New YOU

    HOLY CRAP, IT'S 2020! That year flew by but I guess having a baby will do that to you. Nevertheless, I'm excited for what 2020 will bring. So much optimistic energy floating around these days, we thought it only necessary to wish everyone a happy new year and of course, discuss our own thoughts on "New Year resolutions" and any goals we have for the year ahead. It's a mini episode so give it a listen whilst you put in a 15-minute cardio session as part of your "New Year, New Me" protocol ;)

    #58: Overcoming Impostor Syndrome + Four Key Principles to Being Happy

    #58: Overcoming Impostor Syndrome + Four Key Principles to Being Happy

    There aren't many books that I've read THREE times! In fact, I can only think of two. One is “The Four Agreements” by Don Miguel Ruiz and it's basically about the self-limiting beliefs we love to carry around that essentially rob us of happiness and instead, create suffering. This book has been such a game-changer for how I approach the various people and situations in my life. So what better topic to share and discuss on the podcast?! Yup, it's another "mindful meathead" episode! We're even delving into the psychology behind "Impostor Syndrome" -- another fun phenomenon I've personally battled. Enjoy!

    #57: The Bald-Cast: Thinning Hair SOS and Hair Loss Prevention

    I'll admit that I've always had a thing for bald men. I'll also admit that postpartum thinning hair SUCKS! Apparently sleep isn't the only thing a new mother loses after her baby is born... And so, what better (and timely) topic to address on the podcast than all things hair health and hair loss prevention?! That's right! It's "The Bald-Cast." And we're dishing on everything from supplements and topical treatments to wives tails and "cul-de-sacs."

Love the topics hate the audio

The topics are real life which I love, and with the opening being so good. The audio is terrible, could you please fix it, can’t wait to listen to again

NemCoco ,

Hilarious, informative and natural!

Just listened to this podcast for the first time and I laughed out loud at least 5 times. Never thought calculating macros and discussing body types could be this entertaining. Glad I’ve subscribed to this!
