Summary

Kathy Freston may have found the key to longevity. A New York Times best-selling author and health and wellness advocate, Kathy joins Sheri and Nancy for a thought-provoking talk about food, health and clean protein as we explore the Health & Wellness pillar over a cup of herbal tea. Kathy explains how she got into plant-based eating and shares the many reasons for and benefits of going vegan. She also shares the perfect protein source (hint: it’s not animals) as well as the science on what livestock does to our climate, the future of protein, and how to lean in to health, one bowl of lentils at a time. Kathy’s latest book Clean Protein, is co-written by wellness expert Bruce Friedrich and is available now. In a nation obsessed with protein, Kathy is on the forefront of the revolution to eat in a better, healthier, more intentional way.   Takeaways: [3:49] Nancy stayed committed to her Health & Wellness pillar while on a business trip in Chicago. Instead of going out for celebratory dinner and drinks after a successful pitch meeting, she stayed on the path of clean plant-based living. And sobriety! [6:34] This week’s guest is Kathy Freston, a New York Times best-selling author and health and wellness advocate. Her latest book, Clean Protein, is on sale now. [8:52] Kathy is on a mission to educate people on how they can get their protein in a clean and humane way. [11:08] Factory farming creates more climate change gases than all the transportation in the world, combined. [15:38] One of the first steps to shifting towards plant-based eating is to slowly switch out an animal protein for a plant protein for one meal at a time, here and there. [20:17] There are so-called “Blue Zones” all over the world, and they represent the longest living and healthiest populations on earth. Their environment calls for physical activity, connection to their community, and not having a Taco Bell on every block. [24:20] There are many different reasons one would switch over to eating a predominantly plant-based diet — health related issues, concern over animal welfare and weight loss are three. [28:06] Beans are the single best longevity protein you can eat. Try to add in a cup a day of lentils, pinto beans, black beans, edamame, or any other variety, once a day.  [39:35] It’s more efficient to go direct to the plant to get our protein instead of eating the carrier of a protein such as a pig or chicken. [43:47] The future of meat is a laboratory-grown version. Kathy thinks that we are about a decade away from it becoming widely available.   Mentioned in This Episode: Clean Protein: The Revolution that Will Reshape Your Body, Boost Your Energy—and Save Our Planet, by Kathy Freston and Bruce Friedrich The One: Discovering the Secrets of Soul Mate Love, by Kathy Freston Kathy Freston Harvard Nutrition Source   Website Story.co
