Episode 133-with Timeree Hagenburger and the Excusitarian Series

Welcome and thank you for listening.  This Excusitarian episode with Timaree is entitled; I can't eat well because I have to cook for my busy family.  It can be a big challenge to eat healthy yourself if your family is used to take out and fast foods.  Or if you are cooking plant based for yourself and your family wants the Standard American Fat filled diet.  The take home message is "the burden is the gift" as the Nutrition Professor states it.  It is up to the cook of famiy to create a safe eating environment that provides the nutrients necessary for children to grow and develop and adults to maintain health and wellness.  This cannot be accomplished at the drive through window or from a box that only needs to be microwaved.  But it does not need to be complicated and it should be quite tasty and wonderful to see and smell.  Find the go to meal that everyone can enjoy.  Add color to you plate.  Timaree makes a Cheezy Parm that consist of nutritional yeast, 1/2 cup of nuts, garlic powder, and lemon zest all pulsed together and then used to sprinkle on steamed greens or to top a potato.  Besides her book, The Foodie Bar Way we discussed Nudge by Richard Thaler and The Little Things  by Andy Andrews.  Check out for great tips and recipes.  You can find me at  Email me with questions at

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 132-Hurricane Irma Plant Style

Welcome and thanks for listening.   I am relieved to have survived Hurricane Irma and my thoughts and prayers go out to all the people affected by Harvey and Irma.  In this episode I discuss my preparations for Irma and my plant based routine.  It is certainly easier to do if you have been plant strong for some time but can be done quite easily and affordably.  Just like preparing for a Hurricane you need to prepare your home to be plant strong.  That means having plenty of dried goods like beans and grains.  Potatoes  and onions keep well in a dark pantry.  I witnessed people buying chips and fried frozen junk food that not only does not last but will not help you to sustain stressful and sometimes demanding times.  We can be victims of desasters or use them to learn and grow and become stronger.  Are you prepared to go without power?  Can you work outside and walk distances without tiring.  If not now is the time to make a plan to get into good physical shape.  Of course that begins with a plant strong diet full of anti oxidants and antiinflamatory nutritents.  If you are not sure what to do let me guide you.  Visit the webside at or email me a

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 131-Mindful Eating and Don’t Try to Fool the Doctor

Welcome and thank you for listening.  My office staff knows I have very good ears.  I hear everything that goes on out front.  I also see what people are buying in the grocery store when they don't even realize.  We all know it is hard to fool our mothers.  So can you imaging how hard it is to fool your doctor who is a mother.  The good thing is I know it is  not meant or intended for the most part.  But I don't believe that all of my patients are that forgetful when it comes to what they eat.  However, when we grab and go or eat while driving or standing we are not mindful of our food.  We do not realize the portion size or it's taste or nutrients.  How can we say we enjoy or it is comfort food when it is taken in so fast? Today I discuss mindful eating and how that allows us to use food as medicine for healing.  Our taste buds change quickly given a little attention and mindfulness.  Health is not that hard to attain when you focus on the correct things.  Plate your food and look to see the colors of the rainbow.  The more color the more nutrients and satisfaction you will get.  Check out my website at or email me at  I look forward to hearing from you.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 130 with Dr Bulsiewicz of HappyGutMD

Welcome and thank you for listening.  When you gut is happy you will be happy.  Mainly because you gut contains 100 trillion microbes that can either help to make you very healthy or perhaps very sick. Today I welcome Dr. Bulsiewicz or as he prefers, Dr B.  Dr. B is a gastroenterologist and gut mibrobe expert who believes as I do that the way to optimal health is thorugh nutrition. Dr B is a gastroenterologist in Charleston SC.  He did his fellowship at the University of North Carolina.  He did advanced epidemiology trainingathe the UNC-Gillings School of Public Health and was a NIH grant recipiant.  

We have a great chat on the latest information regarding the gut microbiome.   The more diverse the species of microbes in our gut the healthier we can become.  The healthies populations have somewhere around 1500-1600 different species of gut bacteria.  These bacteria thrive on fiber and produce short chain fatty acids that promote healthy by decreasing inflamation, regulating glucose and cholesterol metabolism, caloric extraction and decrease the risk of colon cancer.  Fermentation of vegetable is an excellent souce of PREbiotics which are the nutrition for our gut microbes.  This promotes diversification and growth of good microbes instead of taking  PRObiotics which are adding a few species of bacterial colonies to the wide number we already have. Dr B and I discuss these topics and many more tonight.  I hope you enjoy the chat.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 129-Nutrient Density for All Ages and Activites

Where did your eight year old child or even your 18 year old child get their nutrition degree?  Certainly not school where ketchup is considered a vegetable.  The reality is they get their wants and desires from media aimed directly at them.  Cool kids eat burgers, fries and cheese pizza.  Vegetables are for old people.  The reality is that kids eating a whole foods plant based diet have higher IQs and less illnesses including Juvenile diabetes and infections.  Healthier kids are more active and don't miss as much school.  Puberty onset is later which is associated with decreased reproductive cancers.  Family dinners are a great way to put the cell phones down and actually have a face to face conversation.  Show how much you care by making a home cooked plant based nutrient dense meal, sit down together, and take a moment for gratitude.  And if that doesn't work try again tomorrow.  A little hunger is associated with a lot of appreciation for a home cooked meal.  

Worried about athletic performance and iron defeciency.  No need if you are eating beans, greens, nuts and seeds.  You will absorb just the right amount of iron if you are eating those foods along with vitamin c containing foods such as tomatoes, potatoes, and fruit.  Plus with all of the antioxidants and phytochemicals you will recover more quickly and get less infections allowing you to train more consistently. 

I would love to help you reach optimal health and wellness.  Check out my website at or email me at  Thank you for listening.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 128 with Timaree Hagenburger

Welcome to another episode in the series with Timaree Hagenburger RD on Excusitarians.  Today we discuss the excuse: It is hard to eat healthy traveling.  It is one of the biggest problems people note trying to eat plant based but it is also universal to even eating a "perceived" healthy diet. We often give in before we start collecting snacks and junk food, planning our stops at fast food restaurants or diners.  Or even just not planning and then getting really hungry and grabbing the first quick greasy thing that we get well marketed whiff of.  You know the drill.  Driving and getting hungry and then stopping when you see the infamous bill board luring you into trouble.  Next time try planning ahead.  We give you some tricks of the trade to carry with you to decrease those weak moments with the smells of fast food can be overwhelming.  Remember we want every day filled with nutrients rich vegetables and fruits brightly colored representing abundant phytonutrients and antioxidants.  You will feel better and enjoy your travel more if you are not brought down by greasy salty sugary snacks and fast food harboring chemicals and bacteria.  You spend time and money to plan a vacation so add just a little time to plan good nutrition so that you have energy to enjoy yourself.  Check out Timaree's article as well as  You can follow her on Twitter @TheNutriProf as well.  Please check out my and feel free to email me at with questions.  Thank you for listening.  We would love a 5 star rating on iTunes to help spread the word.   Be healthy, naturally.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 127-with Dr Scott Stoll, 1994 Olympian

I often say during my talks that if your doctor does not personify the health you would like to have then find another doctor.  No worries with Dr. Stoll.  A 1994 USA bobsled team member that still looks like he could take on the course.  Thanks in large part to adopting a plant based lifestyle early in his medical career.  He was not satisfied with traditional medicines inability to help his patients.  He listened to them and searched for a solution.  And like me his practice was of medicine was uplifted when he started to teach the importance of a plant based way of life.  In his book: Alive, A Physician's Biblical and Scientific Guide to Nutrition he links taking care of ones health to stewardship for others.  We were only given one body and we cannot help those around us if we are unhealthy and continuously feeling poorly.  The average lifespan is somewhere around 80 years or 29,200 days.  As he states those of you listening have probably used up a fair number of those days already.  Time flies.  In order to cherish each of our days and live well until our time is up we need to be healthy.  Dr. Stoll is a physical medicine doctor that deals with patients often suffering from skelatal pain.  Improving blood flow to our bones and muscles as well as our organs can decrease inflammation and make arthritis and nerve pain much better.  I hole you enjoy our conversation.  Check out his webiste and for more information.  Please visti my website at to find out about the online educational and coaching opportunities.   I also post many of my meals on Instagram at Jaimeladulaney.  Feel free to email me at

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 126-I Will instead of I Know

Welcome and thanks for tuning into my podcast.  My goal is to help people achieve their optimal health whether online or in my office.  Sometimes we just have to get out of our own way.  My mother and a navy seal named David Goggins have something in common.  They both realize the value of looking at yourself in the mirror and assessing the situation.  Only when you take time to do that do you really understand where you are with regard to the best version of you you can be inside and out.   It allows us to change the target from what we are doing to what we desire.  Our old ways may not be serving us well and it is time to make a change.  That is a good thing but it is not always easy.  There is a lot of confusing information with regard to nutrition and health.  This week I talk about the struggles people have with transitioning to plant based nutrition.  Perhaps you have similar issure and can gain some insight.  Check out my website and drop me an email with questions you might have at
