#085 - MNDFL Meal Prep - Brett Mickinac, Tyler Pakos, & Ross Beagle
Based in Latrobe, PA, we created MNDFL Meals to offer fresh, tasty, and healthy meal options to the citizens of the greater Pittsburgh area. Having used many online meal prep services in  the past, we disliked the amount of waste that came with each purchase -  large boxes, plastic containers, dry ice/ice packs - and all for frozen  meals that you really can't be sure when were cooked. All of our meals are cooked fresh weekly, and then delivered straight  to your door. This ensures all your food tastes like it was made in  your own kitchen, cuts down on the waste of packaging, and saves you  money on shipping. Not to mention, our containers are made from 100%  compostable plant fiber and turn to soil within 90 days - how cool is  that?! (and don't worry... they microwave fine and don't get soggy 😉) Our menu items are crafted from locally sourced ingredients, fresh  produce, and all under the guidance of certified health professionals -  you can rest assured you are putting the very best into your body. We are excited for you all to try what we've been cooking up and are confident you will enjoy every bit of it! If you have any questions, please contact us. -Brett Mickinac, Tyler Pakos, & Ross Beagle Check them out at the following links 👇 WEBSITE - https://mndflmealprep.com/ FACEBOOK - https://www.facebook.com/mndflmealprep INSTAGRAM - https://www.instagram.com/mndflmealprep/ — — — — — — — — — — — — — — —  📲 Connect with me too 👇 WEBSITE - TheLocal724.com FACEBOOK - @thelocal724podcast INSTAGRAM - @thelocal724 YOUTUBE - @thelocal724

The Veteran Bushido Brotherhood is here to help veterans using fitness and community as tools to heal the mind and body. Founder, Jeric Fry, proudly served as a Marine for 9 years, through multiple deployments. He understands exactly what someone leaving the service is faced with when coming home.

When we return, the struggle seems to be gone and the  community that surrounded us went with it. Here at The Veteran Bushido  Brotherhood, we look to get you back into environments that push you, both mentally and physically. We want to help get you introduced to the plethora of fitness communities that exist near you! Activities like  Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Boxing, Mixed Martial Arts, and CrossFit are just a few of the options that we will support. Positive communities with activities that push us to be better!

Happy Monday everyone! Today on the show we have our buddy, Brook Brewer. You may know her from being a member of The Trendy Bunny team, but she also runs a fantastic blog that gives you an inside look at what it's like to be a military spouse... It's called Proud Military Wife. She also partnered with CeCe Custom Design to craft earrings out of actual military uniforms. Uniforms that have seen the harsh elements, battle, loneliness, and defended our country. The earrings are one of the coolest things I've ever seen and with the story and meaning that comes with them, they're priceless. A cut of the proceeds from the earrings is being donated to Project Healing Waters, which is an organization that is dedicated to the physical and emotional rehabilitation of disabled active military service personnel and disabled veterans through fly fishing and associated activities including education and outings. **Please take ONE second to hit the share button and show your support for local business and this very podcast.   Connect with Brook at the links below!! https://bbmilitarywifelife.wordpress.com/ https://www.facebook.com/brook.moore1 https://www.instagram.com/brookelizabethbrewer/   Also, check out our sponsor for the show Brian Nicklaus Jewelry! https://www.instagram.com/brian_nicklaus_jewelry/ https://www.facebook.com/briannicklausjewelry

#024 - Dr. Yesh Navalgund - Pain Management Physician at DNA Pain in Greensburg PA
Today we had a very interesting conversation with our guest, Dr. Yesh Navalgund. He's a pain management Physician, President, & CEO of DNA Advanced Pain Treatment Center here in Greensburg, PA. He reached out to me with some interesting information about how Coronavirus / Covid-19 is actually deterring people with other medical issues from going to be seen because they are fearful that they might catch the virus... So what do you do?? That's a tough call especially if you're someone with a compromised immune system and scared to chance it.

#022 - Chad Taylor - Pittsburgh Nurse (Hempfield native) Headed to NYC to fight Covid-19
** The audio is a little rough due to circumstances** Last week we got the opportunity to speak to a goddamn superhero. Yep, a real one. Chad Taylor is a Pittsburgh nurse (Hempfield native) who took a relief position in NYC, the epicenter of the virus in the whole country for the next 8 weeks. He will be lending his expertise and relief to the thousands of healthcare workers that are desperately seeking a much-needed rest. This is something that is just absolutely incredible to me, the selflessness that chad and millions of other healthcare workers in the world are showing is truly a gift to us all. This is a subject that I take very seriously, I have strong opinions about how I think this should be handled in the safest way possible. While most people this week are on Facebook arguing whether to ease the lock-down order, people like Chad are out there putting their lives at risk to help the people who got infected. If the experts are saying stay home and keep social distancing, you owe it to these incredibly brave people to listen.   Please follow and support Chad in his journey at the link below. Send him an encouraging message every once in a while or ask how you can donate to his fundraiser to support the healthcare workers of NYC. They need it. https://www.facebook.com/chadwick.taylor.56   Also, don't forget to check us out online too for some behind the scenes photos in studio and video on our youtube channel... www.thelocal724.com https://www.facebook.com/thelocal724 https://www.instagram.com/thelocal724 https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCaud4bP5jO0paZqNqnhByOQ
