Join Michael and Ellen for another episode of the Plant Based Podcast where they talk to TV presenter and fresh produce importer, Chris Bavin!

In part one, Chris talks about his journey with fresh produce, from importing and selling flowers and plants at 16 to growing up with his gardening enthusiast Dad. He also talks about his past project, The Naked Grocer, and shares how his passion for sustainability inspired the idea – urging everyone to stand together to live a more sustainable life. Chris also reveals how the success of the Naked Grocer introduced him to the world of TV where he has since presented a range of shows, including Britain in Bloom, Britain’s Best Home Cook and Live Well for Less.

In part two, Michael and Ellen quiz Chris on his plant-based diet where he talks all about the supposed barriers to the diet, the grey areas surrounding the subject and he even shares some tips on how to incorporate more plant-based meals to make eliminating meat products that bit easier. Chris also shares how easy it is to make delicious meals with plants that are versatile and full of flavour – strawberry ice-cream topped with basil anyone?

After Chris, Joey and Katy from share another of their tasty recipes, and the fabulous Forage & Folklore reveal the things to be foraging right now!
