Welcome to Fiber February

If you’re a regular listener and follower of TFF, then you’ll know how much we’re obsessed with plants, fiber, and gut health, and how all three of those things work in perfect synchronicity to create epic, blissful, bowel movements.

The Evidence-Based Trio: 3 Nutrients Every Plant Eater Needs

We constantly get questions about what supplements to take if you’re on a plant-based diet, which supplements we take, and why. This is definitely an important and widespread question, and we’ll definitely do a more in depth What’s The Deal style episode on some more supplements and the supplement industry in general, but we wanted to focus on the three primary nutrients of concern for the plant-based population — collectively known as the evidence-based trio —due to their stature and...

This is the final part of our two-part series on making the switch to a plant-based diet. A comprehensive guide to the basics of adopting a vegan, plant-based lifestyle.

The theoretical framework for the three main pillars of veganism: health, ethics, and environment. This episode is all about the HOW. The practical side. What books you should read, documentaries you...


The Ultimate Guide to Transitioning to a Plant-Based Diet: Part 1

When we first started our transition to a plant-based lifestyle, we wish there was a comprehensive guide, grounded in reason and logic, to help with understanding the why's and how's of eating and living this way. Without a proper understanding of both the theoretical and practical frameworks for a specific behavior change, it's going to be difficult to catalyze a sustainable, long term shift in dietary or lifestyle behavior. 100 episodes later, we've decided to remaster our 3rd ever...
