#201 Vegan in Vegas
What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas! Join us on a quest to find out if mindfulness can be a winning bet when traveling to Sin City. Check into the greenest luxury hotel in town to search for Vegas’ hidden conscious gems. Venture on a 34-mile scenic nature drive for a majestic hike through nearby Red Rock Canyon National Park. Bianca doubles down on compassion with rescued farm animals at a sanctuary, minutes from the strip, and meditation at a Hindu temple behind the world-famous Hell’s Kitchen restaurant. Michael rolls the dice to see if he can make vegan crab cakes taste like real thing at the first plant-based culinary school in the United States.

#202 Mindful Modernism
Dust off your mid-century threads for a trip back in time to the hottest ticket in town: Palm Springs Modernism Week. With a mission of preserving historic design, fashion and culture, this sustainable event attracts mindful travelers each year from around the globe. Learn how to roll in style at a vintage RV show. Take a walking history tour of iconic architecture at swanky pads like the Dinah Shore Estate. Indulge in tasty bites at a mid-century diner with a vegan twist, then make a beeline to Palms Springs’ Vintage market, where throwback fashion, furniture and upcycled textiles set the table for a perfect day of mid-mod shopping.

#203 A Taste of the Good Life in the City of Angels
Sunshine, Tinseltown, and legendary surfing - what’s not to love about the City of Angels? We roll out the red carpet to some of L.A.’s secret destinations for nourishing body, mind and soul. Bianca takes a walk on the glitzy side at a Beverly Hills hotel famous for A-list organic facials, private yoga sessions and spa treatments to the stars. Then, surf’s up for spiritual healing at the Self-Realization Fellowship Lake Shrine gardens in Pacific Palisades, where meditation, silence and the healing power of nature offer a welcome refuge from the city’s hectic pace. Bianca takes a front-row seat at Vegan Fashion Week, while Michael cruises Venice Beach for a vegan five-course meal at a Michelin star restaurant where meat eaters bow down for a taste of the good life.

#204 The Secret Recipe: Intention
Enjoy a tasty affirmational plant-based meal at Café Gratitude while celebrating mindful masters who take their craft seriously. Meet a restaurateur in Paris who prides himself on creating classic French recipes without meat or dairy, including a sublime plant-based Brie. Then, we’re in San Francisco with a Zen Buddhist monk who conjures matcha meditations with traditional Japanese tea ceremonies. Next, we debate the honey question with a passionate beekeeper working to combat colony collapse disorder at the world-famous Miraval Resort.

#205 Ode to the Road Trip
Hop in for a trip to remember, as we hit the road for a wellness journey into the heart of the desert. Start with a relaxing dip in the mineral waters of Desert Hot Springs, where a group of First Responders are working to mindfully heal PTSD from years on the emergency front lines. Next stop: hipster haven Joshua Tree, where Michael learns the art of vegan pie-making while Bianca balances hormones with a transcendental acupuncture session. Renewed and energized, we join a drum circle to get our groove on at the desert’s best kept secret, The Joshua Tree Music Festival.

#206 India’s Magic Carpet Ride
An enchanting pilgrimage through Northern India’s most sacred sites takes us through Kolkata’s crowded, cow-filled streets flowing with rivers of chai and calls of vendors hawking spicy dhal. Just in time for Hindu festival season, we bow our heads in frankincense-scented Ashrams, white water raft on the holy river Ganges in Rishikesh and kneel with reverence during an explosive sunset fire ceremony in Varanasi. Then, after a pit stop to patch a flat tire and load up on cardamom sweets, we wind fourteen hours to an altitude of 10,800 feet. Through treacherous Himalayan cliffs and rogue tribes of sheep and monkeys, we search for ancient meditation caves in Badrinath, finishing our sojourn with a communal soak in a steaming hot spring on the chilly border of Tibet.

#207 Miraval Magic in Arizona
Though it’s been two decades since Oprah put Miraval on the map for being a first-class wellness destination, on this episode we retreat to the majestic hills of Tucson’s Santa Catalina Mountains to see if this all-inclusive mind, body spirit resort lives up to its stellar reputation. Indulge in the resort’s vast array of cutting-edge healing modalities while Michael cooks up hand pressed Oaxacan tortillas for a meatless taco recipe with the head chef. From hanging meditations to crystal bowl sound immersions and even equine communication therapy, Bianca puts Miraval’s best healing tools to the test to process grief from her mother’s passing.

#208 Brown Girl Magic
The darker the berry, the sweeter the juice! We’re celebrating amazing BIPOC women around the U.S. Start the day in La Quinta, California at a Latina-owned fair-trade café for tea lattes and homemade vegan fudge. Next, Bianca sits down for a ghostly face painting and lesson in honoring her African ancestors at the largest Día De Los Muertos festival in North America. Then, after an indigenous Native American spiritual healing in the heart of the Sonoran Desert, take a walking mural tour with a Chicana artivist bringing vivid representation to the white walls of Phoenix, Arizona.

#209 The Best Vegan Food in Asia
Our love affair for Asian food began on our honeymoon and is still as steamy as ever. Join us as we taste, slurp and lick our way through two all-time foodie destinations: Vietnam and Thailand. From the textured mastery of Hanoi’s crispy rolls to the spicy Bahn Mi and street corner Phở served piping hot in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam never disappointed. Next, we hop into a Tuk-tuk to explore Thailand’s legendary markets and an animal sanctuary helping abused elephants heal with a tireless conservationist. From umami bomb noodles in Chiang Mai’s exhilarating night markets, to the addictive mango sticky rice of Bangkok’s rural floating markets, Thailand was a gift that kept on giving. Back at home, we show you how to make a simple version of Thai favorite, Pad See Ew.

#210 Net-Zero Staycation
After a long journey, there’s nothing more satisfying than returning home. On this episode, we celebrate the joy of staying put, while transforming our midcentury desert home into a net-zero oasis. With countless days of sun, temperatures topping 115 degrees, and A/C bills through the roof, Michael dons his toolbelt to see if we can harness solar energy to power our home year-round. Bianca takes a break from the action to hop on her electric bike for a vintage fashion show at a local art gallery. But first, breakfast. Michael kicks off the staycation with hearty vegan recipes from the farmer’s market: a no-egg omelet and a cheezy sausage breakfast sandwich.
