Aaron Stuber and Jackson Long are the plant-based duo behind Thought for Food Podcast and TV. Their mission is to educate and inspire people to live healthy, compassionate, and adventurous lives through plant-based nutrition. I personally enjoy their show and use it as one of my guides for staying up to date on the latest evidence-based nutritional science. They are both high level athletes and always have interesting insight about how to be a plant-based athlete. They are both interesting individuals in their daily life as well. Aaron is a registered nurse and also a Health and Wellness Coach. Jackson is an elite cyclist, finishing his Master’s Degree in Applied Nutrition, and has the eCornell certification for Plant-Based Nutrition (something I want to get!)
I love these guys because they are authentic, unpretentious, and hilarious. Th is was a fun episode because we talked about a lot of the frequently asked questions about plant-based diets. We talked about how they formed Though for Food, how to be a plant-based athlete, the truth about fat, the Blue Zones and longevity, and how to know what to believe in terms of nutritional studies.
