Spartan Up! - A Spartan Race for the Mind!

Last week we talked about blue scorpion venom, today we're keeping it super simple. Eat more plants.  It's not just Joe De Sena telling you it matters - today self-proclaimed meat and potatoes guy Dr. Alan Desmond, author of "The Plant Based DIet Revolution" explains the positive impacts more plants can have on your health and performance, and why you might be hearing ads that tell you otherwise.


Dr Alan Desmond is on a mission to help people eat more plants! As a Gastroenterologist he knows that our health can be optimised by building all of our meals, or most of them, from the simple whole-foods that humans have thrived on for generations: fruits, vegetables, wholegrains, beans, legumes, nuts and seeds. His book "The Plant-Based Diet Revolution: 28 days to a happier gut and a healthier you" is released in the US on April 20th, available wherever books are sold. It explains the science, cuts through the diet confusion and contains more than 80 fantastic plant-based recipes to get you started.
