Episode 102: Empowerment Through Choice with Brian Romain

 Welcome to Episode 102 of "Amazing You," where we explore stories of transformation, empowerment, and triumph. I'm your host, Dr Rani Thanacoody, and today, we are delving into the powerful narrative of choice and change with our esteemed guest, Brian Romain.


Brian's journey is a testament to resilience and the human capacity for renewal. Born in Kansas City, Missouri, and raised in Overland Park, Kansas, Brian's life took a series of turns that led him from Kansas to Minneapolis, and finally, to where he calls home today, Denver, Colorado. In Denver, Brian navigated through various life paths, from cooking to working in the cannabis industry and back to his passion for culinary arts.


However, Brian's journey was not without its challenges. For a decade, he battled alcoholism, with the years 2017 to 2020 marking the height of this struggle. His battle with addiction saw him face legal challenges, including probation in two counties for DUI charges, over 150 hours of community service, and a total of 83 days spent in jail. But, in the heart of adversity, Brian found his turning point.


In 2020, Brian embarked on a profound journey of self-discovery and transformation. He chose sobriety, and with it, a complete restructuring of his life. Now over three years sober, Brian's life is a story of empowerment. He maintains a solid job, follows a meal plan, and ensures regular workouts. Beyond his personal triumphs, Brian has ventured into entrepreneurship, launching his own meat delivery business in collaboration with local butchers.


Brian's voice extends beyond his business through the "Clean Plates Podcast," where he explores the relationships we have with others and how we live through the food we share. His mission is to spread positivity and inspire others through life and the culinary arts.


Brian's story is a powerful reminder that empowerment comes through choice, and change, though daunting, is within reach. Join us as we delve into his inspiring journey of overcoming addiction, embracing change, and empowering others through the universal language of food.
