"I basically found freedom in going plant based, where it might be viewed as restrictive for some people. I’m literally like, I’ve never felt so good in my entire life and so I was like I don’t want to go back to eating the other way. I just felt too good.” - Ashley KitchensToday we have two very special guest joining us, our friend and prep master Ashley Kitchens and her Environmentalist (aka environmental engineer) husband Nick! You guys have heard us talk about her in previous podcasts. Ashely is a registered dietitian, one-on-one health and nutrition coach, and meal prepping queen. She helps people live an easy, sustainable plant based lifestyle in whatever way works best for them. She is one of the two accounts I tell any friends wanting to go vegan to follow. On her instagram she shares all her super easy and delicious plant based recipes.
