Episode 303: Lynda Layng Tama, Plant-Based Chef And Health Coach On Waking Up Your Kitchen

By in Podcast

We are excited to welcome Lynda Layng Tama back to the show. Lynda first graced your listening ears in episode 54, which we recorded just days after meeting her at the Mendocino 50k packet pick-up.

Lynda is a whole food plant-based chef, recipe developer, food editor, and certified health coach from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. She is passionate about whole food, plant-based nutrition, fitness, and mindfulness.

Lynda has been in the vegan publishing and recipe development space for over ten years. And has had the pleasure of working on cookbooks, such as The Plantpower Way by Rich Roll & Julie Piatt, Self Magazine Drop 10 Cookbook, Dining at the Ravens, treasured recipes from The Stanford Inn Vegan Resort, and the YogiTriathlete Cookbook. Her most recent work includes No Meat Athlete, Health Made Simple Meal Plan, and Mississippi Vegan’s YouTube Cooking Channel and website.

If you are a regular listener, you have heard us mention her name in gratitude as she continues to book us the most amazing guests through her role as Marketing and Production Assistant for this podcast. But today, we are talking with Lynda about another role that she plays as YT’s Nutrition Coach. Tune into this episode to hear more about Lynda’s story and the beautiful Awake Kitchen program launching under her guidance Monday, March 7th.

In this episode, we discuss.

  • the parting gift of losing her parents
  • exercise as a distraction to working through the stuff
  • recipe writing days in Hoboken
  • make the mess and be creative
  • acting on inspiration
  • there are bigger hands at play
  • Awake kitchen jump start
  • creativity in the kitchen
  • it’s all about the sauce
  • shopping with your eyes
  • more is caught than taught
  • when you feel better you do better

We hope you enjoy the show.
