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

Welcome and thank you for listening to my podcast.  This has been a busy week with the launch of my wellness practice.  I am still practicing cardiology but I am now offering primary care and wellness as services to my member patients.  The response has been overwhelmingly supportive but I do have the best patients in the world so it is expected.  I am grateful to my those have been with me for up to 20 years and I am dedicated to helping them achieve optimal health and wellness.  If you are new to my practice thank you for entrusting your health with me.  As for my podcast listeners, remember to check my website because there are programs for those not in my area.  We can work together to achieve health and wellness.  

We can all do more than we think we can and sometimes it just takes a little clarity to define our goals and passions.  Then nothing can stop us.  This is true for plant based nutrition as well.  The more you strive for nutrient rich fruit and vegetable choices, the healthier you will become.  It is the same way for movement.  We can all do more than we think we can.  There are a lot of obstacles out there in the grocery isles.  Think of them as hurdles to jump over to achieve maximum health and wellness.  Check out my website at and email me at with questions.  Say hi on Instagram or Facebook at jaimeladulaney.  I look forward to hearing from you and thank you for listening.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 123 with Timeree Hagenburger, RD

Welcome and thanks for tuning in.  Today I am joined by The Nutrition Professor, Timaree Hagenburger for another in our series: Picky eaters.   The fact of the matter is our taste buds change so what we may have disliked as a child is not set in taste bud stone.  In fact it may just be the memories of how it was prepared and the environment you were in at the time.   Was dinner a stressful time when a particular dish was served. The tone of the evening can turn if the cook is insulted by her picky eaters or perhaps something was under or overcooked.  Our perception of texture can also change over time.  Timaree offers some great suggestions.  A few of her quotes: "I don't believe I have had that prepared in a way I like yet".  By leaving open the possibilities we have not passed judegement and condemned a food to "good" or "bad".  Have you tried something 15 times?  Have you had it prepared in many different ways with a variety of different seasonings and sauces? Nothing is better than a positive happy association with a particular meal.  Enjoying good food together with people that you love can and should fill you with nutrient dense food and wonderful memories.  I hope you enjoy the episode.   We would love a 5 star rating on Itunes.  Email me at  Check out my website at  Follow me on Instagram and Twitter @ jaimeladulaney.  Check out Timaree's website at  Follow her on Twitter @The NutriProf and on Instagram at TheNutritionProfessor.   Order her book: The Foodie Bar Way on Amazon or her website.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Base Wellness Podcast Episode 122-Summertime Nutrition and More

Welcome and thanks for listening.  I hope you are enjoying summer.  To me that means the tropical fruits are ripening and my training is ramping up again for a fall Ironman.  This week I discuss Mamey Sapote, a sweet orange fruit packed with fiber, vitamin c, minerals and beta caratenoids.  We also discuss the basics.  Simple food nutritious food such as corn and potatoes.  Again packed with plenty of protein, vitamins and fiber.  Add some green beans and beets and you can have a great nutritrious meal in less than thirty minutes.  We often get caught up in recipes and sauces which cause us to stray from the kitchen and run to prepared foods already packaged with fatty, salty, chemical laiden sauces.  It is great fun for some to create new recipes but if that is not your thing simply head for a plate of beans, greans, potatoes and another vegetable.  For the teens who rebel remind them that Wimpy ate burgers and Gladiators were predomintately vegan.  Have them check out the mixed martial art Champion Mac Danzig or the worlds strongest man Patrik Baboumian.  Robert Cheeke is an accomplished vegan bodybuilder.  There are many more and the number is growing.  To recover from work outs our bodies need more antioxidants and phytonutirents to help decrease inflamation.  There is plenty of protein tagging along in vegetables to grow muscle without the damaging effects of fat and free radicals.  If you want the athletic edge; eat plant based.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 121-Just Takes 1 to Change Many

Welcome and thank you for listening.  This episode I discuss the positive impact that the United States Humane Society is having on university students around the country.  I was fortunate to be invited to speak at their Food Forward event at Georgia State University.  By educating the food service department on plant based meal options and the preparation, universities are offering many vegan option and even vegan dining halls.  This translates into healthier students, less cost for the university, and is better for the environment.  We also heard from groups connecting small farmers to food banks in North Carolina and Wholesome wave Georgia double SNAP dollars for vegetables and also connects local growers with those who need access to vegetables. It just takes one person reaching out to start a movement towards a healthier population.  It is not about government but about people connecting with other people to show the way to healthier plant based nutrition. I hope you enjoy this presentation and I also hope it inspires you to reach out to others to create a healthier environment for everyone.  Email me at with questions and check out my website at  Follow me on Instagram and Twitter @jaimeladulaney.  Have a great week.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 120- My Thoughts for the Week

Welcome and thanks for listening to the podcast.  Today we talk about accentuating the positive.  It is easy to loose focus about being healthy when we surround ourselves with unhealthy people.  Sometimes we are so focused on pleasing others that we let our own health suffer.  I would counter by saying to serve others unhealthy food is not a service but enabling their poor choices.  Keep your house plant strong and be a lighthouse for healthy happy eating.  You need support as well so find a MOAI or a like minded support group of people that can support your plant based choices and support you emotionally.  You are most like the company you keep so try and include some health conscience people in that group.  We are pack animals and do best when we are socially engaged.  Join an exercise group or a plant based food group that can also provide social support.  It is even better if that involves some outside sunshine time.  I challenge you to try a concept called "Earthing" where by you connect to the earth via your skin either by touching the earth or a tree that is planted in the ground.  There is evidence that this can neutralize free radicals thereby decreasing inflammation.    A few deep breaths of fresh air and some sunshing cannot hurt!.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast-Episode 119 with Timaree Hagenburger-Excusitarian Series-But I am Healthy Already

Welcome and thank you for listening to my podcast.  This week I team up for another Excusitarian Episode with Timaree Hagenburger.  Many people don't feel the need to examine or change their nutrition choices because they feel healthy presently.  You may feel healthy and actually be healthy at the current moment, but how about tomorrow? Or are you really healthy or just comparing yourself to your friends or family members who you perceive to be less healthy than you are.  Lifestye diseases like coronary artery disease, hypertension, diabetes,  and cancer just do not appear overnight.  They can smolder undetected for many years and may present with a catastrophic event like a stroke, heart attack or side effects from long standing glucose intolerance.  Maybe you have accepted that the sluggish feeling at the end of the day is normal or that everyone your age is a little bit overweight.   Timaree and I discuss this "excuse" for not eating a healthy plant based diet.  I would encourage you to take a look at how you really feel.  What would you consider optimal for your state of wellness?  Is aging a mandatory state of decline?  We all age but how fast our body deteriorates is largely in our own control.  I personally would like to live well until I die as opposted to ride the steep curve of continual decline until death.   Eating a plant based diet rich in nutrients and antioxicants can allow your body to heal itself so you can maintain an optimal state of health.  Daily exercise can keep you mobile and help to maintain your muscle and bone mass.  I hope you enjoy our chat.  Check out Timaree at  Email me at and check out my website at  Follow us on Instagram and Twitter @jaimeladulaney and @thenutritionprofessor and @TheNutriPro.  Have a safe Memorial Day.  I salute  all those who have served in our military and bless those families that have lost loved ones.
