In 2009, John Mackey, the then-CEO of Whole Foods Market, gave Rip Esselstyn the shot of a lifetime to showcase Engine 2 products and tour around Whole Foods Market stores as a healthy eating ambassador extolling the virtues of a whole foods, plant-based diet. This opportunity and vision truly put PLANTSTRONG on the trajectory that exists today and has allowed Rip to live out his life’s purpose. Today, Rip speaks with John about his new book, The Whole Story - Adventures in Love, Life and Capitalism. Mackey describes it as a gift to past, present, and future employees of Whole Foods. It’s also a gift to entrepreneurs and dreamers who dare to envision something unconventional in a conventional-minded world. John may be one of the most successful CEOs in business, but he’s also a philosopher, thinker, and teacher. Mackey vulnerably shares his ideas around competition, authenticity, leadership, and overcoming obstacles in business and life. He delves into his difficult family dynamics, the importance of love, community, and acceptance, and his experience with psychedelics and spiritual awakenings. He also shares his experiences with “play” - something we all need to embrace a little more of in this life. It’s so rare to get such an authentic glimpse into the mind and heart of a CEO, but John Mackey graciously opens his heart and his playbook for all to see. The Whole Story - Adventures in Love, Life and Capitalism is out now wherever books are sold.Episode WebpageWatch the Episode on YouTubeUpcoming Events:Register for Plant-Stock August 16th-18th, 2024: https://liveplantstrong.com/ Sedona Retreat - October 8th-13th, 2024 https://plantstrongfoods.com/pages/2024-sedona-retreat COMPLEMENT: Use code PLANTSTRONG for 30% off at https://lovecomplement.com/pages/plantstrong-special-offer Leave Us a Voicemail QuestionLeave us a voicemail: https://www.speakpipe.com/plantstrong Follow PLANTSTRONG and Rip Esselstynhttps://plantstrongfoods.com/ https://www.facebook.com/GoPlantstrong https://www.instagram.com/goplantstrong/https://www.instagram.com/ripesselstyn/ Let Us Help Your PLANTSTRONG JourneyUse Code: PSSUMMER20 for $20 off Annual Subscription at https://home.mealplanner.plantstrong.com/ https://myplantstrong.com/b/trailblazer Follow the PLANTSTRONG Podcast and Give the Show a 5-star RatingApple PodcastsSpotifyTheme Music for Episodehttps://app.soundstripe.com/songs/10845

Imagine a life where you are trapped…imprisoned…in a cycle of addiction to alcohol, fentanyl, and food. Now imagine escaping that prison for a life that is far better than you can ever imagine. This is the story of today’s guest, Tim Kaufman.At just 38 years old, Kaufman’s doctor essentially left him for dead. His weight, blood pressure, cholesterol, and triglycerides were through the roof, and his self-esteem and self-worth were…well…practically six feet under. He was ready to give up on himself, his family, and his life. That is, until one day, he started making the smallest of changes. For him, it was getting out of his chair two times. That was it. One small change at a time. This eventually led to a little research and he found Forks Over Knives, The Engine 2 Kitchen Rescue, Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead… documentaries he credits with changing his life and his diet to a whole foods plant-based diet. Today, he is an accomplished athlete training for an IRONMAN triathlon and he just released his memoir, Escape-Breaking Free From A Self-Made Prison. Episode WebpageWatch the Episode on YouTubeUpcoming Events:Register for Plant-Stock August 16th-18th, 2024: https://liveplantstrong.com/ Sedona Retreat - October 8th-13th, 2024 https://plantstrongfoods.com/pages/2024-sedona-retreat COMPLEMENT: Use code PLANTSTRONG for 30% off at https://lovecomplement.com/pages/plantstrong-special-offer Leave Us a Voicemail QuestionLeave us a voicemail: https://www.speakpipe.com/plantstrong Follow PLANTSTRONG and Rip Esselstynhttps://plantstrongfoods.com/ https://www.facebook.com/GoPlantstrong https://www.instagram.com/goplantstrong/https://www.instagram.com/ripesselstyn/ Let Us Help Your PLANTSTRONG JourneyUse Code: PSSUMMER20 for $20 off Annual Subscription at https://home.mealplanner.plantstrong.com/ https://myplantstrong.com/b/trailblazer Follow the PLANTSTRONG Podcast and Give the Show a 5-star RatingApple PodcastsSpotifyTheme Music for Episodehttps://app.soundstripe.com/songs/10845

Inflammation is certainly a buzz word these days, isn’t it? Every time you turn around, you’re reading about something that’s causing inflammation in your body. It’s a minefield of misinformation and here to help clear up some of that confusion is educator and author, Linda Tyler, who recently released the book, The Plant-Based Anti-Inflammatory Cookbook.Because inflammation is an emerging area of research, that makes it ripe for misleading advice and a lot of poor information. In fact, most can't even define exactly what it is.Inflammation isn't all bad. In fact, it's actually your body's way of protecting itself against disease or injury. But what's happening, primarily because of the standard American diet, is that your body is constantly in a “fight or flight response” creating chronic inflammation. It’s this damaging state that can play a dangerous role in diseases, many types of cancer, aging, and even weight gain.The good news is that you can reduce inflammation through your diet, and eating a healthy plant-based diet is especially helpful for calming the immune system. The Plant-Based Anti-Inflammatory Cookbook delivers tasty plant-based recipes centered around foods known to play especially helpful roles in the fight against inflammation, including ginger, turmeric, garlic, berries, citrus, and high-fiber foods such as legumes and whole grains.She also shares tips and recipes from her cookbook that incorporate all of these superstar foods. This conversation inspires mindful eating habits and highlights the joy of nourishing anti-inflammatory meals.

Dr. Rak Jotwani - aka Dr. RAK - is a lifestyle medicine physician who has the all-too familiar story…working long stressful hours in the hospital, eating the standard American diet, and managing crippling depression. It got to the point where he couldn’t be present for his own wife and kids because he just felt so tired and overwhelmed. Dr. Rak shares his experiences with burnout in the medical field and the profound impact of meditation and a plant-based diet on his well-being. He now emphasizes the importance of whole food, plant-based nutrition and conscious living through his virtual lifestyle medicine practice, RAK Your Life.Dr. Rak highlights the pillars of his practice - roots, awareness, and kindness - focusing on finding your personal “north star,” becoming more compassionate, and making kind decisions that are both good for us and make us feel good. Instead of seeing change as a punishment, he sees it as an opportunity for improvement and THAT’s the medicine he practices daily now – helping others establish belief that they can make a change, that, yes, they can RAK their own lives. Episode WebpageWatch the Episode on YouTubeUpcoming Events:Register for Plant-Stock August 16th-18th, 2024: https://liveplantstrong.com/ Sedona Retreat - October 8th-13th, 2024 https://plantstrongfoods.com/pages/2024-sedona-retreat COMPLEMENT: Use code PLANTSTRONG for 30% off at https://lovecomplement.com/pages/plantstrong-special-offer Leave Us a Voicemail QuestionLeave us a voicemail: https://www.speakpipe.com/plantstrong Follow PLANTSTRONG and Rip Esselstynhttps://plantstrongfoods.com/ https://www.facebook.com/GoPlantstrong https://www.instagram.com/goplantstrong/https://www.instagram.com/ripesselstyn/ Let Us Help Your PLANTSTRONG JourneyUse Code: PSSUMMER20 for $20 off Annual Subscription at https://home.mealplanner.plantstrong.com/ https://myplantstrong.com/b/trailblazer Follow the PLANTSTRONG Podcast and Give the Show a 5-star RatingApple PodcastsSpotifyTheme Music for Episodehttps://app.soundstripe.com/songs/10845

We answer all of those questions and more today with Matt Tullman, founder and CEO of Complement.Matt and his team have taken a maniacal and lengthy pursuit to engineer the BEST supplements for plant-based eaters, and they’ve done the work to validate their innovations by having everything verified with third party testing. In the Esselstyn family, data is king and Matt has done a lifetime’s worth of research to produce what we believe to be the perfect complement to a whole foods, plant-based lifestyle.This episode provides valuable insights into plant-based nutrition, proper supplementation, and optimizing health through a plant-based lifestyle.As you’ll hear Matt stress repeatedly today, “supplements” are just that. Health starts first and foremost with a whole foods, plant-based diet, followed by positive lifestyle interventions like good sleep and social connections. From there, once you know your numbers, you can start to fill in those gaps that may need a little boost. thriving on a plant-based diet has never been easier with Complement.

In 2016, Carleigh Bodrug started her blog, PlantYou, with one goal - to show the world that eating plants is not only healthy, but also FUN. Since then, Carleigh and her ever-growing team have amassed over 10 million followers (and growing!) across her social platforms, and she’s even released a New York Times Best Selling Cookbook, PlantYou.Today, we get a peek under the PlantYou curtain as Rip and Carleigh catch up and talk about her meteoric rise in the last eight years. Carleigh shares her authentic and fresh approach to content creation, inspiration for recipes, and tips for creating plant-based meals on a budget. We also get an exclusive sneak preview of her next book, Scrappy Cooking, which is being released in April, 2024. It will, no doubt, dazzle and inspire readers to save money, reduce food waste and eat healthier - all while having fun. The book equips readers with not only the tools to make the most of their scraps, but use up just about any vegetable, grain, or bean from their fridge and pantry. Scrappy Cooking not only puts the focus on eating a diet that's more conscious for our environment (and our wallets) but our health as well. Every recipe in the book is vegan, almost entirely oil free, and focuses on whole, plant-based foods that are good for our bodies and the planet.Rip encourages listeners to pre-order Scrappy Cooking as those numbers do count towards the first week sales numbers, but, more importantly, it’s an opportunity to raise awareness of the goodness that is whole-food, plant-based nutrition.

Getting enough sleep is easy when you're young - just go to bed early and get enough sleep. I'm 65 and having sleeping problems for many years and it's getting worse. Almost all people I know in my age group have these problems. I don't know what to do, since all advice is always in how to fall asleep, not how to stay asleep and have a deep restful sleep. I have no problem to fall asleep, I go to bed at 9pm but wake up 2 to 3 hours later, then I can't go back to sleep for hours until the early morning when I get a few more hours until my alarm goes off at 5:30am to go to work. I get an average of 5 hours not very restful sleep. Am I doomed 🙃?

This guy sucks. Jesse eats fish once a week, eats raw most of the time, doesn't have any grains and he's being promoted as healthy. We all know grains are good for you, fish isn't in any way, it's also cruel and catastrophically damaging to the earth, and eating raw is horrible for your health and detrimental to most people by promoting eating raw. it's not in any way healthy and this should not be an episode of plant strong. This makes me embarrassed to have promoted plant strong to my friends and family.

I would so LOVE to have access to Engine 2 products in Canada! Anywhere would be great as I am used to going to stores in the area that carry what I need. Loblaws would be a great starting point as they own an array of opportunities and carry lines that are in the Natural Health caregory.

I just came across this and I love it! I went WFPBNSOS about 6 months ago and I've never felt better... and I weigh what I did in high school (more than 40 years ago!). I loved the conversation with John Stewart. especially part 2 about talking to and convincing others. He is wise and funny and kind. thank you Rip.

Could not love the Plant Strong podcast more! Finally a real guide to transitioning to a whole food plant based lifestyle that takes on the challenges of real life...like not being able to find a restaurant (because you had to race out with a sick child) or not getting enough sleep. We are all dealing with these kinds of roadblocks, it is good to hear that we are not alone! The guests are awesome, Joe Inga is amazing, RIP is fabulous and I just love Ann! I can't wait to listen to the next episode!
