New Year’s Food Resolutions 2020

New Year’s Food Resolutions 2020

It’s that time of year again! We’re closing out the year with our annual tradition of New Year’s food resolutions. Listen in to hear Dan's!

Our other year-end ritual here at The Sporkful is to replay one of our personal favorite episodes from the past year. This year, it's a flashback to April Fool's Day, when three improv comedians tricked listeners into thinking that Dan had been swept up in the "health and wellness" craze.

Green Apple, Bad Apple

If you’ve been listening to this show for a while, you know that Dan has never been Mr. Health and Wellness. But when he hit 40 years old, he just started not feeling as good. His body didn’t bounce back as quickly, and his joints were aching. So he decided to start a journey to change the way he eats. Really, to change his entire lifestyle.

Now Dan is a few months in, and he wants to share the results, along with the people who've inspired him: Jolenta Gold, Ian Bryan, and Jenny Miller.

The first stop on Dan's journey was talking to Jolenta Gold (Jolenta Greenberg), a Manhattan-raised health and wellness blogger, public speaker, influencer, and guide through the world of cleanses.

Ian Bryan (Ian Chillag) is the celebrated founder of SMUn, a proprietary smoothie line that is revolutionizing the consistency of smoothies on the global market. An ultramarathon runner himself, Ian has changed the way performance athletes metabolize foods. He combines the research of NASA scientists with support from Silicon Valley. Ian shares his tips with Dan.

Jenny Miller (Jenny Yang) is a yoga teacher and certified master herbalist in Los Angeles. You may have heard of echinacea, ginseng, and ginkgo biloba. No one used these herbs before Jenny discovered them. This week, Jenny and Dan talk khichuri, ashwagandha, and the benefits of a specialized form of advanced baby yoga.
