Plant-Based Transformation & New Music With Nick Broadhurst


(Subscribe on iTunesStitcher, Spotify, iHeart or TuneIn)

You asked, so here it is: another episode with Nick Broadhurst — singer/songwriter, polymath, entrepreneur, and (best of all) my darling husband. In today’s deep-dive, he’s pulling back the curtains on the huge physical transformation (as well as giving us a sneak peek at his latest single ‘Inner Love’!!).

It’s no secret that Nick has had his fair share of health challenges. After his life-altering diagnosis, as well as suffering from various ‘mystery’ illnesses, ailments and mental health issues, he came *this close* to giving up on his search for wellness. After all, maybe “sick and tired” is just how we’re supposed to feel as we get older… right?

Wrong. Nick knew there was another level he could reach with his health, and the solution was in the kitchen. By eating 100% whole food, plant-based he’s been able to radically transform his body and mind. In less than 3 months, he put on 5 kilos of muscle, increased his training volume by 600%, healed some lingering ailments, got his energy back to levels he hadn’t experienced for decades, and now feels stronger, healthier, happier and more creative than ever before.

In this conversation, we opened it up to you and he’s answering all YOUR burning questions about mental health, releasing new music, creativity, purpose, his transformation, revealing the truth about going plant-based, and how it can impact your life.

So if you want to bust through the raging myths about eating plant-based, find out why transitioning to plants is not as hard (or as big a deal) as you may think, and also hear his new single (which is hands down, one of my favourites), grab your earbuds, press download, and prepare to have your mind-blown… this episode is for you!

In this episode we chat about: 

  • His journey through one of the toughest times of his life… and how it impacted our relationship (08:30)
  • His new single — why now, and why the delay? (15:36)
  • The #1 reason he decided to go 100% wholefood plant-based (17:22)

  • The best plant sources of protein and fat (and they’re not what you’d expect!) (41:10)
  • How to transition to a plant-based diet and avoid any nasty detox effects (49:29)
  • Do vegans need supplements? Finally, an answer backed by science (55:00) 
  • How Nick builds so much muscle on a plant-based diet (01:02:59)
  • Celery juice: worth it or not? (01:05:05)
  • The best way to get your family to eat plant-based (even if your kids don’t love fruit and veg… yet!) (01:07:47)
  • His powerful manifesting process (01:16:21)
  • Plus so much more!

      Hi Melissa and Nick, loved this episode thankyou.
      Just wondering what your thoughts are on coconut milk and coconut cream. :)

      • October 25, 2019

        Hey Katie, thanks for your questions. We would recommend getting a coconut and making your own milk and cream as most tin milks and creams are filled with loads of nasty chemicals. I hope that helps honey. xx

      Hey Melissa

      Great podcast firstly, very interesting. Just was wondering your perspective on thing - I know you were a massive advocate of bone broth prior to becoming a vegan. Where do you sit on that these days?


      • November 8, 2019

        Hey Tom, great question and because we don't consume any animals we don't have bone broth any more but veggie, mushroom and seaweed broths are amazing for you and taste delicious. Give them a try if you wish. xx

      Hi guys, great Podcast and I am so glad to hear that you guys have gone plant-based. I went Plant-based about 3 years ago and for me, it came up through my yoga practice. I also had tried so many different diets and one day during practice I heard a voice saying "Go Vegan". It always baffled me how people who do yoga and meditate can still eat animal products but I now think that it is a place that most people eventually come to. I think when we connect with ourselves, connect with source and remember who we really are, we can no longer support an industry that hurts animals.
      Anyway, that's just my opinion. But I wanted to say thank you for looking after your health, for looking after the animals and also looking after our Earth. Our planet can not sustain the level of animal agriculture and a plant-based diet really is the best diet all around, again for our health, the animals and the planet.
      Keep spreading the word and let's continue to heal ourselves and our beautiful planet.

        I couldn't agree more Katy, thank you so much for treading gently with yourself and the planet also. xx
