In this Season 2 episode of the Jennifer Zee Plant-based & Happy Podcast, I had the lovely opportunity to chat with Margaret Coons - Founder and CEO, or “The Big Cheese” . Food preparation and production has been a long-time passion for Margaret. A vegetarian since the age of 12 and vegan since the age of 19, creating delicious alternatives to more conventionally available food products was a hobby that turned into a career. She didn’t grow up in a vegetarian family, so, she began to cook for herself at a pretty young age and became interested in making vegetarian and vegan dishes. Working as a chef in a vegan restaurant, Margaret spent many late nights in the kitchen creating cashew-based vegan cheeses. In 2015 she decided to try her hand at a local farmers’ market booth with the vegan cheeses she had been making for a couple of years. This was when the young chef-turned-entrepreneur combined her passion for food and the art of culinary experiences with her commitment to her dietary choices to create Nuts for Cheese. Just as she started the booth at the farmers’ market, when demand began to soar and retail requests came in, the business took off from there. Nuts For Cheese is now available in 1000 stores across Canada! In this episode Margaret and I chat about: ➤ Choosing to be vegan (and sticking to it) even when family and friends are not. ➤ Why vegetables may taste better now than when you were a kid.    ➤ Turning your hobby into a career. ➤ Growth in the plant-based sector. ➤ How today's vegan cheeses are leaving customers with zero reasons to eat traditional cheese. ➤ Challenges and how to overcome them as a plant-based entrepreneur. ➤ Keys to being a success a an entrepreneur. ➤ Why you should spend more time on doing the things that you love.

In this Season 2 episode of the Jennifer Zee Plant-based & Happy Podcast, I had the amazing opportunity to chat with Jenny Kong, my very own Muscle Activation Specialist! If you haven’t heard of MAT yet, you could be missing out on the key element needed to rebalance your body, increase muscle function and range of motion, experience faster recovery time, better workouts and finally, to achieve your highest quality of life yet. Jen is the owner of Parallel Fitness Studio, a Personal Training Studio, voted best fitness centre by the community of Richmond Hill. She is a Kinesiologist alumni from University of Toronto and a Personal Trainer and Muscle Activation Techniques Specialist. Jen has worked with people of all ages, from athletes, to clients with MS, Parkinsons disease, lyme disease, stroke, surgery recovery, injury, joint replacement and arthritis among others. She has an exceptional understanding of not just physical activity, but biomechanics and human anatomy and uses all of that to create workouts that build you up instead of break you down. As a twin mom, she understood first hand postpartum how body aches and pain can affect everyday performance and has been since an advocate of a “less is more” philosophy. She focuses on finding weak, underused muscles that aren’t firing optimally and strengthening those to create a more balanced muscular system. Every workout is dictated by the client’s body and structural needs and not based on protocols or the latest trends. She is totally passionate about health and wellness; and has spent over a decade in this industry educating clients about their bodies and how to work smarter, not just harder. Jen’s proudest accomplishments are her twin girls and the time she went back stage and did a MAT treatment session on Phil Collen, Def Leppard’s Lead guitarist and his wife during their concert in Toronto. In this episode Jen and I chat about: ➤ What is Muscle Activation Techniques? ➤ Comparing MAT to other therapies. ➤ Finding the root cause of pain. ➤ Locating weakness in the body. Psst... It’s not always where you think it is. ➤ How the body begins to overcompensate for muscle weakness.   ➤ The true purpose of exercise. ➤ How an injury manifests. ➤ Workouts that focus on building you up rather than tearing you down. ➤ Comparing social media ‘mom life’ to the real thing. ➤ Dieting regrets.

At 18 years old he moved from his home in Chicago to Colorado, and at 20 years old, started a video production company filming food commercials for television. Everything was about creating the most ‘droolworthy’ meaty, fried, cheesy food shots to entice people. Mario became interested in vegan food when his business partner lost 100 pounds by eating plant-based. After that he began learning as much as he could about plant-based nutrition. During this time, he had to stop making unhealthy commercials and learn how to spread a healthier message. That’s what inspired Trying Vegan with Mario.

In this episode of the Jennifer Zee Plant-based and Happy Podcast, I had the amazing opportunity to connect with Suze Yalof Schwartz, the founder and CEO of Unplug Meditation in Los Angeles, California, the world's first drop-in secular meditation studio.  Not too long ago my husband and I discovered Unplug Meditation on recommendation from my father-in-law and it was the very first time we had ever experienced a drop-in style, group meditation session. We travel often and the 'drop-in fitness class' style is perfect for us, but I had never imagined that this could apply to meditation until we found the Unplug studio.  One thing led to another and I ended up with Suze’s book 'Unplug: A Simple Guide to Meditation for Busy Skeptics and Modern Soul Seekers' in my hands and couldn’t put it down.  I knew right then and there that I had to have Suze on the podcast and luckily, she graciously accepted my invitation!

After taking hundreds of hours of classes, reading every book possible, and listening to podcasts and lectures from the world's most famous meditation teachers, Suze realized that meditation needed a makeover and she was the one to do it. Suze's mission is to make meditation simple, accessible, powerful and interesting enough so that everyone will want to practice it and experience the benefits for themselves. In this episode Suze and I chat about: ➤ Trading the glamorous world of fashion for meditation ➤ The unique way that Unplug is reaching busy stressed-out people ➤ Being ahead of the mindfulness trend ➤ How meditation changes the structure of your brain ➤ Why meditation is so addictive (in a good way) ➤ Demystifying the practice of Tapping ➤ What the near future has in store for Unplug Resources: Unplug: Guided Meditation App 30-Day Meditation Challenge iTunes listing Unplug Press Lena George: https://www.unplug.com/teachers-new/lena-george Thank - you for listening.  If you love this podcast, feel free to like, comment and share.  For more plant-based inspiration, coaching and education, visit: jenniferzee.com/  If you’re like me and have endometriosis then you’re going to want to visit my 6-weeks to Thriving with Endometriosis website to learn more on how you can begin to reduce pain and thrive with this inflammatory condition: jenniferzee.com/jenniferzeeendo/ AND Learn from 20 world-renowned experts with my plant-based online summit:plantbasedmasterysummit.com

As women we can begin to diminish our self-worth with our thoughts and by spreading ourselves too thin on a daily basis. We are often too afraid of failing because of our perception of failure itself and this eventually hinders our self-growth. In this episode, Leah and I talk about facing failure, understanding self-worth, breaking through the mental health stigma that women face, and how to begin to incorporate self-care as a top priority!
