Featured Guests and Runners of the Week: Anna Vocino with a “Run By” from Vinnie Tortorich

This episode is all over the place! You’re going to hear about how fear and shame can get in the way (we’re channeling Brene’ Brown here, and if you don’t know her, you need to run over to her website!), food intolerances, the challenges of writing a book, and how having a podcast is hard and very rewarding work with voice-over artist, comedian, cookbook author, and runner, Anna Vocino. The “other half of the Angriest Trainer podcast”—and the trainer himself—Vinnie Tortorich comes on after our “girl talk” and shares what having a podcast has brought into his life.

Serena Marie, RD

Go-to, real-food dietician, Serena Marie, RD, talks about great things to eat for breakfast, such as coconut pancakes, Greek yogurt (choose full fat if it comes from a grass-fed cow or choose organic; choose low fat if it’s not either of those two), or scrambled organic tofu with spices (vanilla extract, stevia, berries, and silken organic tofu).

Gratitude Jar

I’m grateful that I have realized the connection when I don’t eat well, I don’t feel well. Serena is happy that her grocery store is expanding.
