Welcome to OpTEAmized, the podcast teaching athletes how tea can optimize longevity, recovery, & performance!
My name is Vince LaPelusa, and I am a brazilian jiu jitsu purple belt who has been drinking tea for over 10 years now and my mission is to teach YOU how to work with tea so you can recover quicker, play longer, & be more competitive in your athletic pursuits.
As athletes, we are always striving to be better, whatever that means for you. We are always thinking there is someone out there training harder or I need to grow. This can lead us to harming ourselves if we don’t allow for proper recovery…but how can I recover & still train hard all the time?
Well today, my guest Liz Morgan & I are going to discuss our struggles on our athletic journey & how overtraining led to injuries & struggles that we now realize are not necessary.

In this episode, you are going to hear Liz share her life’s experiences of fatigue, food sensitivities, & a lack of food understanding & how it has led her to heal herself holistically so she can perform the sports she loves. You will also learn how tea can impact our recovery, performance, & digestion! So grab your tea, sit back, relax, & enjoy this episode of OpTEAmized!
