The None to Run Podcast (nutrition)

Matt Frazier has built an amazing community of plant-based athletes.

His blog, No Meat Athlete, shows you how a plant-based diet can make you fitter, faster and happier.

Although I am not plant-based, I am a huge fan of No Meat Athlete and Matt’s approach to nutrition, running and life.

His posts are helpful and heartfelt.

I partly blame Matt for convincing me to buy the Lamborghini of blenders, the Vitamix!

Paul Underhill has Cystic fibrosis.  Cystic fibrosis is most common fatal genetic disease affecting Canadian children and young adults.

For most of his life Paul was able to manage his condition. Six years ago however, Paul got very sick - to the point he was forced to leave his job.

Paul's appetite decreased significantly. To get the nourishment he needed for his body to battle the illness, Paul turned to his blender.

His kitchen turned into a lab where concoctions of organic fruits and vegetables were created.

This is a story about Paul and a tasty, sustaining drink, powered by natural goodness ... called Rumble.
