In this episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk with Tyler Mayoras all about how cool beans are and how they are not only good for your heart but also good for your health and the health of the planet. Today, over 9.7 million Americans eat a plant-based diet. That is up from only 290,000 in 2004. While Tyler sees a bright future for the plant-based movement, the triple threat of climate change, animal welfare concerns, and meat-associated health risks mean this culinary revolution can’t come quickly enough. We cover so many topics from climate change, gas emissions of vegetables, upcycling food, and freezing your own burritos!

Tyler Mayoras is giving a glow-up to the world’s most under-appreciated superfood: the bean. A passionate impact investor and entrepreneur, he co-founded Cool Beans with a vision of bringing sustainable, whole-food goodness to the frozen foods aisle. Inspired by his journey to a plant-based diet, he’s making it easier than ever to eat clean, minimally processed food that's good for your body, your soul, and the planet.
