Jackson Long is a mountain athlete, a podcaster, videographer and photographer, co-founder of Thought for Food podcast and brand, TEDex speaker, beholder of Certificate in Plant-Based Nutrition from eCornell, an animal activist and an incredibly funny humble caring person on a continuous path of growth and self-perfection.

We start with conversation about fiber and it's importance, discuss his journey of finding plant-based nutrition, and dive in into how it folds into endurance sports. We talk about eating disorders and disordered eating and its prevalence in the athletic community. Jackson talks about the specific things endurance athletes should look out for and how their version of plant-based diet may look different. We discuss the modern vegan movement, the extremes, and finding the balanced approach that is inclusive, rather than ostracizing. Jackson also shares the projects he is working on and exciting things he has coming his way.
