Mike Cernovich (MC): Mark, you’re known for remaining healthy year round. What is your best nutrition and recovery advice?
Mark Munoz (MM): Nutrition. I like to eat anything made from the earthy – nothing packaged, nothing processed. Those foods are very hard to digest. The organic foods you can eat, the better. I eat a lot of organic fruit and vegetables, meats and nuts.
MC: What about green juicing?
MM: Green juicing all the time.
“If you juice, that’s even better.”
MC: What’s your favorite juice recipe?
MM: Spinach, kale, apples, zucchini, radishes, coconut water, and vanilla protein powder. It’s a vanilla vegetable shake – sweet but healthy.
MC: Do you think juicing helps with you recovery?
MM: 100%. Juicing gives you all of the nutrients your body needs to recovery.
