This is only the third time in Party In My Plants history when I’ve publicly had a threesome - I interviewed TWO guests at the same time, you silly goose! I had an incredible hour talking with Robby and Cyrus which you will hear about in un memento. And for a conversation focused on diabetes, which I initially expected to be boring AF, I surprisingly and genuinely laughed a lot and have smiled thinking about since. Something that I found really cool about both Robby and Cyrus is that they were diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes and, parallel to my story, they used that low point in their life to get really curious, learn more and dedicate much or their time to healing their bodies and then helping others. Their journeys fascinated me. Not only did we get into the sciency, brainiac stuff (how many of us can ACTUALLY define insulin and explain the differences between Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes?) but we also got some great plant-y eating recommendations and fun backstories on both gentlemen. But the best take-home ever: you CAN and SHOULD, even and maybe especially if diabetic or insulin resistant, eat fruit, carbs and tons and tons of mangos. Orange you excited to hear? (sorry, hard to resist.)

Press play to hear:

  • How a diabetes diagnosis can merely be just an inconvenience
  • Yes, you can eat fruit with diabetes, here’s how
  • How two diabetics are defining the age-old advice
  • Why insulin ain't your enemy
  • Exercise is a diabetic’s BFF, here’s why
  • Intermittent fasting IS all it’s cracked up to be
  • Why the American diet leads to American medical issues
  • A much needed reminder, for myself too, that like actually PLANTS (*produce*) are where it’s at
  • And lots more!
