"Synchronicity is my drug!" - Michael Mayell

Synchronicity is also the theme of this conversation and what led to me to meet Michael Mayell, founder of Nutrient Rescue, Cookie Time and a passion for a plant powered life for all. 

When you open your eyes and ears to the world and start to share your vision and dreams of a plant powered utopia it's amazing what life returns. 

A few weeks back I was looking for some Organic plant based green powder from New Zealand, similar to Athletic Greens which Tim Ferris promotes, when I came across Nutrient Rescue. I then met a wonderful woman Lizzy at Wanderlust, we got talking and by chance she mentioned she had just met Michael about his new business Nutrient Rescue! What are the chances and where can I get a cacao smoothie I thought! So I got in touch with Michael as I wanted to try his new plant powered products and find out what he was all about. A week later my friend Cam Sims returned from the south island and mentioned he had be shooting a vid for Michael in Christchurch for Nutrient Rescue among other things. All the stars, cookies and plant powders lined up and led me to an hour or so on Skype with Michael.

What instantly struck me was Michael's enthusiasm, openness, zest for life and a picture of him performing the splits on his coffin on a lake on his 50th birthday. I knew from that image and the infectious tone in his voice it was going to be a life changing and fascinating conversation and it was and so much more.

During the conversation we cover off everything from the vision behind Nutrient Rescue, how he started cookie time, minimalism, how business failings are compost, sustainable housing projects, food sharing network, Singularity University, ayahuasca in Peru, Terence Mckenna, medicinal marijuana, hemp farms, the ultimate breakfast, living life a purpose, why we should have free plant based food for all and how to make NZ the healthiest most sustainable country on the planet.

I'm sure this episode will wet you're appetite to to try the amazing Nutrient Rescue which are the most nutritious and delicious plant powders i've tried yet. And also to be part of plant powered positive revolution in NZ and beyond. If so please share to help unite and inspire others on this journey and any feedback as always much appreciated. 

Think less, experience more & take a shot at following your passion and eating more plants, 

Yours happily,
