Podcasts: My husband and I listen to a lot of health podcasts. These help us stay motivated and informed. Two of our favorite podcasts are No Meat Athlete and the Rich Roll Podcast. We have also recently purchased Rich Roll’s new cook book called The Plantpower Way. It is a vegan cook book filled with easy to cook recipes for all types of occasions, as well as juices, teas, snacks, and lifestyle tips.
Websites: I also subscribe to Dr. Michael Greger’s website, nutritionfacts.org. It is loaded with everything you need to know about health, and things you may not want to know, but you need to know. He has dedicated his knowledge and time to informing people of their health in the best way.
Books: One of my new year’s resolutions was to read more non-fiction, health books. I started this resolution earlier in 2015. Some of my favorite books that I have read so far (and that will motivate you) are: Born to Run by Christopher McDougall, Finding Ultra by Rich Roll. I have a few other books that are on my list to read in 2016. They are How Not to Die by Dr. Michael Greger, Living with a Seal by Jesse Itzler, The Microbiome Solution: A Radical New Way to Heal Your Body from the Inside Out by Robynne Chutkan. I am looking forward to a year full of amazing, intellectual reading!
Documentaries: Some people may shy away from watching documentaries in fear that they may actually have to change their lifestyle. Some of my favorite documentaries to watch are: Cowspiracy, Hungry for Change, Forks Over Knives, Vegucated, Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead, Death on a Factory Farm, Fed Up, Food, Inc. All of these can be found on Netflix, except Death on a Factory Farm. This is an HBO documentary, which means it is graphic….but an excellent look into how factory farming works in the US.
