TJ Long shares his Mango-Peach-Orange Smoothie recipe, which can also be adapted as a fruit salad recipe. TJ Long is a certified personal trainer and athletic nutrition specialist, natural health coach and fruit-based raw vegan based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He became interested in health and fitness a few years after graduating from college, initially intrigued by plant-based nutrition as well as orthopedic exercise and recovery. Seeking ways to advance physical recovery methods, TJ Long later opened up to exploring yoga, calisthenics, plyometrics and Natural Hygiene.
TJ Long stays busy as a full-time student at the University of Minnesota, pursuing a master’s degree in education. Outside school and personal training, he works on researching the principles of natural health, coaching youth ice hockey athletes on- and off-ice and organizing and attending outreach events with local animal rights organizations. For fun, he enjoys hiking, snowboarding and creating raw vegan meals. TJ Long lives with his best friend, a rescued companion dog named Brooks, who came into his care in 2012. Always having a strong connection to animals, he first acknowledged the impacts of industrial farming practices as a teenager and later made the steps to a morally focused vegan lifestyle near the end of college. He believes that all animals deserve to be respected and cared for. Rescue, sanctuary, outreach and education makes a positive impact for everyone, human and nonhuman individuals alike.
