Plant-Powered Marathon Running with Nutritionist, Run and Health Coach Melissa Ensink
In this episode, I sit down to chat with Melissa Ensink aka Prana Running! Mel is a Nutritionist, Run and Health Coach, with an all-round interest in a holistic approach to health and wellbeing. Over the years, Mel has run 11 marathons, the latest two being during pregnancy and 10 months post-partum, so you bet she has a lot of learnings and inspirational stories to share with us!
In this conversation, Mel and I chat about her running story, managing running during- and post-pregnancy before diving into her journey as a vegan, the difference between veganism and plant-based nutrition, misconceptions about plant-based eating, healthful dietary patterns and more.
This was such an authentic and inspirational chat, so whether you are a runner wanting to optimise your diet or improve your performance, this is for you! Enjoy :)
