Lean Green DAD™ Radio (general)

IN THIS EPISODE:

Eating food and the events that surround eating food can be very emotional. As a child, my mom cooked warm meals for me all the time. Of course it tastes great and feels great to eat, but I see now more than ever how satisfying it is for the parent to know that their child is eating a nourishing, satisfying meal.

When my family decided to adopt a plant-based lifestyle, it was a tough transition for both sides of our extended family. It seemed to happen in phases. First came questions of clarity on what we were not “allowed” to eat. Then came the question of why, which was shortly followed by frustration, anger, sadness, and a bunch of other emotions. Did this mean that family dinners at our house were cancelled? How would we eat out at a restaurant together? Can our family give our kids a cookie if they want it? What about Grandma’s special treat jar? These and many other questions are all valid and must be addressed one by one with your family.

IN THIS EPISODE:
At his core, Dr. Joel Kahn believes that plant-based nutrition is the most powerful source of preventative medicine on the planet. Having practiced traditional cardiology since 1983, it was only after his own commitment to a plant based vegan diet that he truly began to delve into the realm of non-traditional diagnostic tools, prevention tactics and nutrition-based recovery protocols. These ideologies led him to change his approach and focus on being a holistic cardiologist. He passionately lectures throughout the country about the health benefits of a plant-based anti-aging diet inspiring a new generation of thought leaders to think scientifically and critically about the body’s ability to heal itself through proper nutrition. One of the world’s top cardiologists, Dr. Joel Kahn has treated thousands of acute heart attacks during his career. He’d like all that to stop. He’d like to prevent ALL future heart attacks by breaking through to the public to educate and inspire a new holistic lifestyle.

I’m going to admit something that is actually really embarrassing for me. Here it comes….I’m being brave. I said the “D” word. Actually, if I’m being honest, I’ve said the “D” word at least a handful of times (if not more) during heated arguments throughout the course of our ten-year marriage. There were times I said it to be mean…but there were also times I said it in a calm, realistic way. Citing things like, “maybe you’re toxic for me,” or “maybe we’re just not compatible,” or “I saw this coming, but I ignored it.” Dramatic, right?

It's the number one question that everyone asks when the weather starts to get cold and people around them start to get sick. This question is a bit more complex that one might think. What's the right answer? The only way to make a decision on something so difficult is to talk to a doctor who has a background in both Eastern and Western medicine and my favorite doctor like that is Dr. Pulde. Not only is she an amazing mom, but also a very well-known plant-based champion, Whole Foods Market medical expert, award-winning author and private practice medical doctor. I hope you enjoy listening and learning as much as I did doing this interview. Enjoy!

A transformation has occurred. You see, I used to be an athlete who competed in races and triathlons frequently. Half marathons, 140.6-mile races, 70.3-mile races, warrior races…you name it, I did it! Today, I still compete every now and then, but I am really embracing my new title of “Dadlete.” Let me explain. It’s not that I have stopped being fit or tried to make excuses why I can’t get to the gym…I just have a different motivation for working out.

Greens look weird. In fact, they taste weird too. I mean seriously. To our kids, eating something out of the ground that was in the dirt doesn’t make a lot of sense, right? I mean, if our kids are used to eating fast food, quick-fix meals that are high in carbs and sugar, it makes total sense for them to be freaked out by a pile of leaves on their plate. These struggles are very real, but the thing we need to remember is that just because something is hard, doesn’t mean that we stop trying. In fact, we have tried a few things that have been extremely successful in getting our kids to eat green vegetables…especially leafy greens. I hope some of these might help you and your family climb aboard the “Green Veggie Train.”

Back to school is upon us and it is a time of growth, change and maybe even the feeling of nervous “butterflies” in our stomachs. As we get closer to the beginning of the school year, we are reminded that our vegan diets need to be introduced to our teachers and faculty at schools. This can make things a bit more stressful for parents and kids who have chosen a vegan lifestyle. To help make this sometimes daunting task a bit easier, we have five tips to help your vegan kids thrive in a non-vegan school.

His name is Drew Seeley and he is an awesome actor for tv, stage, musicals, but also an incredible musician. In fact, if you have kids, then you have definitely heard some of his work. He wrote the award-winning song “Get’cha Head In The Game” from the hugely popular Disney movie: High School Musical. He also wrote music for a few other hugely popular Disney movie musicals like Jump In and Cheetah Girls. He is living the life, my friends! He and his wife Amy are in New York right now, but they call LA home, so I’m sure they will be headed back soon. For now, they are having a blast and living it up in NYC. Enjoy the show!

Today, we have one of those doctors that are fighting the good fight, my friends. Dr. Joel Kahn is no stranger to the plant-based world. As a vegan himself for close to forty years, Dr. Kahn is not only talking the talk, but also walking the walk….literally….he wrote an entire book walking on a treadmill. It was wonderful to talk to him because you can hear not only how passionate he is about this movement, but also how he diligently keeps up with the latest scientific and medical research showing that eating a whole food, plant-based diet is the way to go. You might recognize him from his appearance in "What The Health," which is a mega popular documentary on Netflix right now if you didn’t already know. He is the author of "The Whole Heart Solution" and many other books and refers to himself as a heart attack prevention specialist...ladies and gentlemen, my conversation with Dr. Joel Kahn.

Today’s guest is Mr. Josh LaJaunie. In his own words, Josh is a “plant-eating, miles-logging, WHODAT from the Bayou with an appetite for life!” Yes, he ran a TON of miles and has an incredible story to tell, but this conversation really had me thinking a lot about hunting. Josh doesn’t hunt anymore, but it is part of who is he and it will always be tied to great memories. As someone who now doesn’t eat meat of any kind, he is thinking outside the box about how he can communicate to his Bayou brothers and sisters that eating meat is not something that he feels is healthy for them. His ideas on how to engage in that conversation and his thoughts on hunting as it is looked at from the outside world are fascinating, so I welcome you to open your mind and really hear what he has to say. In addition to that, we talked about family and the impact that this plant-based journey had on his family’s dinner table and get togethers. He is a great guy who is full of life and I am excited for you to get to hear from him.

Adam Sud (pronounced like a soap sud) is addicted to a plant-based lifestyle. This is the first time he has actually been proud to associate himself with addiction. Back in 2013, Adam was addicted to fast food and Adderall, a drug that is often prescribed for those dealing with ADHD in their lives. Adam describes the drug as a molecule away from meth, which is pretty scary. Back then, Adam looked at himself in the mirror and decided that he was "sick and tired of being sick and tired" and switched to a plant-based lifestyle. The plant-based food that he ate worked hand in hand with his recovery and rehabilitation. Today, Adam works with other individuals who might be dealing with addiction in their life and helps them to not only recover but to prevent relapse by incorporating a plant-based diet into their recovery plan.

Today’s episode is with Decio Lopes. Decio works with Orlando City Soccer and happens to be the Director of an amazing film that premiered in 2015 at a film festival here in Orlando called “Making History.” I live in Orlando as most of you know and am a big fan of Orlando City Soccer, so I had to have Decio on the show. I reached out to him for an interview and he originally had to turn me down because he did not feel 100% comfortable speaking with me in English, so I reached back out again with my good friend Natalia, who is bilingual and happens to be the biggest Orlando City fan in all of Central Florida. Her and her husband have been to all the games and have been season ticket holders since day one. These people bleed purple folks! So with Natalia on board to do the interview for me in Spanish, Decio agreed to talk with me. So as you might guess, today’s podcast is completely in Spanish, but if you visit leangreendad.com in the podcast section, you can find a full transcript of the interview in English, so check it out if English is your first language. It was an awesome interview and he is a great man. Now back to the film. As I said, the film is called Making History and it is a documentary about this amazing football club’s journey to the MLS and follows them through their very first MLS game. So without further ado, here is my interview, well Natalia’s interview….with Decio Lopes from orlando city soccer.

Geoffrey Palmer is a vegan bodybuilder. Sometimes those two words (vegan and bodybuilder) don't seem like they go together since most of America thinks we get our protein from meat. Geoff has been doing this for 31 years and was vegan before it was "cool" to be vegan. With a degree in biopsychology and a passion for fitness, Geoff has created and trademarked some of the best muscle-promoting products on the market. He is the CEO and Founder of the Clean Machine line of products. The great thing about all of his products is that they are made from plants and make your body more efficient at digesting and using protein. Imagine having to drink less protein, but making it more efficient with essential digestive enzymes your body needs to do the work that it needs to do in order to optimize your nutrition! I learned more talking to Geoff than I have learned in quite a while on protein, how it works in the body and how to most effectively promote the growth of strong muscle tissue. Enjoy!

Today’s guest is Dr. Julian Maha, the Founder of one of the newest and best-reviewed non-profits in the United States, KultureCity. What does it mean exactly to be a best-reviewed non-profit? Every dollar and every experience that KultureCity raises or provides it tracked and directly related to the impact they have on serving their mission. They have already been recognized by Bill Gates and Microsoft as one of the top ten non-profits in the nation and at the time of this recording have impacted over 15,000 lives of those living with autism. Their mission is to help create a world where all individuals with autism and their families can be accepted and treated equally. I’m really excited for you to hear this podcast and challenge you to think while you're listening to Julian speak. What is the difference between sympathy and empathy? Which one do you have for those living with autism? If you can empathize, you can understand what someone with autism is going through because you have direct experience with it. If you can sympathize, you can still feel strongly for an individual and their family living with autism, but might not have direct experience with it. Whichever one you fall into, it is important to feel one of these two towards an individual or family living with autism, as it is truly the best way to live a life of compassion and understanding. Your compassion will help organizations like KultureCity be one step closer to world-wide acceptance of this often invisible disability. I hope you enjoy the show!

You know from the second you hit play on Jake Minton's YouTube video from his TedX SMU talk that you are going to get something good. The story on how he got to that speech is awesome. We talked about it. More than the talk on how he got to the Tedx stage is how he lives his life everyday. How he challenges young children in the most crucial times in their lives to think "outside the box." In a world where the facts show that men still dominate women in several aspects of life, Jake offers a fresh perspective for all to consider. By using space travel as a platform, Jake expands on some of the staggering historical facts that outline a few struggles for women, but also offers a solution on how we can make it better. So what is your role as a feminist? Why does the word have such a negative connotation to it? The original meaning behind the word's creator was meant to create inclusivity and equality. What if we got back to the root of why the word was created and we all took responsibility for being mindful of feminism? We might just change the world! Enjoy the show!

This episode will give you a solution on how to properly incentivize and educate your kids to do daily tasks around the house to help instill structure and organization within your house.

What feelings do you get when I say the words school mornings or school nights? For me, I feel anxiety, stress, and complete exhaustion! Last school year, our family was really struggling with establishing routines during these times of day. We needed something that really worked and incentivized our kids to want to work with us, and not against us. So we did some research on Pinterest and other blogs for help. What we found was that though there is a lot of information out there, nothing seemed specific enough for us to devise a plan that fit our family’s needs. So we ourselves went to the drawing board. Enter Real IronDAD Cool Coins.
