With the world feeling increasingly uncertain and scary, finding the humour in life can often be a struggle but in this week's episode, Ella talks to author Naomi Bagdonas about why it's more important than ever. Despite seeming like a frivolous thing, they explore how humour has the power to actually connect us more as humans as well as the science on why it can impact our physical and mental health and ultimately our wellbeing.

Is a plant-based diet the 'best' diet for health?
TJ Waterfall is a sports nutritionist specialising in plant-based nutrition who joins me on the podcast to talk about what a plant-based diet really looks like and what the many benefits are. The scientific evidence shows that a plant-based diet is one of the most effective ways to improve both long-term health and also support fitness goals and recovery. However, if you've heard anything about plant-based diets you've probably heard they are a fuss and nonsense that's more trouble than its worth. TJ joins me to share his experience, first-hand and working with elite sportspeople, of why that isn't the case. In this episode, TJ and I discuss: * What the difference is between being vegan and being plant-based. * How to discern what information is accurate and what might be marketing blurb. * Why a plant-based diet doesn’t mean you’ll miss out on key nutrients. * Why cutting meat out of your diet won’t mean you’re missing out on protein - or will struggle to find it elsewhere. * The health benefits of eating a plant-based diet; both on cardiovascular health and overall risk of other chronic conditions. * Why a plant-based diet can have such a positive effect on how you feel, and much more… TJ's book The Plant-Based Power Plan is available now.
