Mar 20, 2019

Watch Episode 14 with Bianca Taylor here:

How can a vegan lifestyle help heal your mind, body, and spirit?

Before becoming a personal trainer certified in plant-based nutrition, Bianca Taylor started her fitness journey as a bikini bodybuilder.

Searching for purpose and a sense of control, she instead found herself dealing with depression and a broken relationship with food.

One small realization started an avalanche of change.

Bianca used the power of plants, with some professional guidance, to reignite her passion for food, health, and strength.

Now she helps other women do the same.

She has trained with a range of different athletes and uses her platform to coach plant-fueled fitness.

You don’t want to miss this emotional episode about purpose, compassion, and self-love.
