Monday, December 9th at 6 p.m. PDT/9EDT: Nathan Agin of Travel. Eat. Thrive
Join us for an inspiring conversation about healthy eating, cooking, travel, and more!
Join me Monday, December 9th at 6 p.m. Pacific/9 Eastern on Radio Enso. My guest will be Nathan Agin of Nonstop Awesomeness and Travel. Eat. Thrive. Nathan is a modern-day nomad committed to living and eating as healthy as possible.
Nathan returns to Radio Enso here at the holidays to talk about his new t.v. show and tips and resources he use to travel, stay healthy and save money — including how to be healthy on airplanes, tips for eating out, and how to make cooking simple! Go HERE to listen.
Nathan Agin is a modern-day nomad, committed to living and eating as healthy as possible. He has been on the road full-time since 2010, with no residence and no “home,” traveling around the US and other countries, staying on couches and anywhere else he can find a place to sleep, with just a small bag on his back, and another one to carry food! He’s healthier now than he’s ever been in his life.
He has been documenting his experiences and discoveries on his blog, Nonstop Awesomeness and has published the cookbook Nonstop Awesomeness in the Kitchen, full of simple, delicious, and nutritious meals—all of which Nathan has used and continues to use with life on the road. He’s passionate about healthy eating, and loves sharing new recipes, including green smoothies, cacao treats, and cauliflower “rice!”
Nathan has studied with experts and trusted sources in the food community, like John and his son Ocean Robbins (Diet for A New America, Healthy at 100), Marc David (founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, The Slow Food Diet), and Angela Stokes-Monarch (The Raw Food World site and show). He’s also spoken with many chefs, farmers, nutritionists, and foodies on his travels, never passing up the opportunity to learn more about how amazing real, good food is!

When you travel, do you know where to go for healthy food?
This new show will help you discover where to eat well when you’re on the road, experience the local cuisine in a healthy way, meet local farmers and chefs, and learn how to easily prepare amazing recipes at home.
The days of being bored and overwhelmed in your kitchen are OVER.
The unfortunate fact is that just about every travel show out there focuses on how to go crazy and indulge when you’re in a new place; it’s time for the other side to be revealed and celebrated.
Most people do try to be healthy when they’re at home, yet find it challenging to maintain their habits on the road. This show will help you know exactly where to go. Whether you’re visiting or are local, discover how easy and delicious it can be to eat healthy!
Welcome to Travel. Eat. Thrive. with Nathan Agin.
Our mission is to find the food that is nutritionally sound and full of flavor.
We’re looking for what’s available, what’s good for us, and what tastes good. In all situations, we’re looking to make the highest choice.
Plus, we keep our eyes peeled for places that are truly sustainable, that care about the environment, and are giving back to their communities—not just adding the word “natural” on their site or products.
This is not a VEGAN show. Or a VEGETARIAN show. Or a RAW show. Or a PALEO show. Or a HIPPIE GRANOLA show.
This is a show about real, natural, tasty, and good-for-you food—prepared in a multitude of easy ways, bringing optimal nutrition to as many people as possible.
Vegetables? Of course. Meat? Sure. It’s all going to depend on where we are, what we find, and what makes sense to eat.
More about the format…
In each destination, Nathan connects with someone locally, someone who wants to eat healthier, and might feel confused or unsure, or maybe even desperate. We then follow Nathan and the local through three parts of the show are: get ideas (from restaurants, shops, etc.), get the food (from farmers markets, grocery stores, etc.), and then make the food (for friends and family).
Fast and processed foods are now available everywhere, and we are all fighting an uphill battle to eat healthy, wherever we go. The Center for Disease Control recently released their 2012 stats on obesity in the US: more than 1/3 of US adults (35%) are obese; 41 states have rates of 25% or more (1 in 4 Americans); and the estimated annual cost of obesity for 2008 was $147 billion. Furthermore, obesity-related conditions include heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and certain types of cancer—and these conditions are among the leading causes of preventable death.
It’s time to help people find the HEALTHIEST food possible: real food with quality ingredients. Nathan knows it’s out there: he’s been around, found it, and thrived with it!
