Eat, Drink, and Do Yoga with Rob Rosenthal and Eli Walker

On this week’s #GoalChatLive, we talk about healthy habits with a fun, playful, hunger-inspiring twist. Guests Rob Rosenthal (aka Short Order Dad) and Eli Walker (CEO and founder of Drunk Yoga) joined me for a show entitled: Eat, Drink, and Do Yoga! The April theme is Health, and we’ll also be covering Mental, Money, and  Corporate Health on #GoalChat Live.

Authors Rob and Eli share their backstories – how Rob became a food humorist and chef and how Eli created Drunk yoga – as well as their thoughts on living healthy, eating well, and finding balance. We even had a nice oatmeal tangent, as well as a comparison of working out to eating a cookie versus baking a cake. 

Healthy Habits

  • Rob: I like working out as often as possible. And I believe in varying the activity. What you put in your body also matters. Eating healthy and well takes discipline
  • Eli: I believe in rituals. I figure out what I need to do each day to get a good night’s sleep, and I work backward. Yoga, for Eli, is not working out. It’s like breakfast – she starts her day with Yoga and does something else to work out.

Food Habits

  • Rob: Prefers actual food to dessert. The challenge is quantity.
  • Eli: Mostly vegan, gluten-free with a weak spot for vegan chicken nuggets
  • Eli: Loads spices into coffee
  • Rob: Makes savory oatmeal with spices

Goals from our Guests

  • Eli: If you are hesitant to work out because you don’t have time, commit to 10-15 minutes a day
  • Rob: Don’t eat or drink for 3 hours before you go to bed

Final Tip

  • Eli: Find ways to engage playfulness in everything you do
  • Rob: Be playful in the kitchen and cook more
