How can athletes combat debilitating digestive disorders that are keeping them from performing at their peak?

Today’s guest is Emilie Tan, speed skater turned endurance ultrarunner and meat-eating IBS sufferer turned plant-based healthy mom. 

Like most of us, Emilie ate animal products for most of her life until health conditions starting catching up to her. 

Within three months of making the switch, she channeled her newly gained energy into running the 2014 Melbourne Marathon

In this episode, Emilie sits down with Alexandra and Dotsie to share the major transformation she’s made in her sporting journey, parenthood, and health.

Tune in to hear how eating dairy affects your digestive system, the benefits of intuitive eating, and advice for raising plant-based children.
