Cory is a husband, father of three, and whole food, vegan athlete. His blog, Lean Green DAD is a blog about food, family and fun that helps passionate people, mostly parents, who have over-scheduled, busy lives to maintain a healthy balance of nutrition, fitness and overall wellness. Visit the blog or subscribe for tips on plant-based eating, fun family activities and other great ways to support each other to get the most out of life!

Cory’s focus on wellness started because he had a personal experience with dis-ease and he decided to change his approach. Just before he got married, his wife was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis.

After being diagnosed, they were both left with fear, misinformation and uncertainty but instead of just accepting it, they decided to look at how they ate to see if that could make her feel better. Not only was his wife able to taper off her medications, but as a competitive athlete, Cory saw a difference in his own performance.

Now as a healthy family of five, Cory and his family focus on remaining lean and green!

Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret is a groundbreaking feature-length environmental documentary following intrepid filmmaker Kip Andersen as he uncovers the most destructive industry facing the planet today – and investigates why the world’s leading environmental organizations are too afraid to talk about it.

Executive produced by Leonardo DiCaprio, Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret follows intrepid filmmaker Kip Andersen as he uncovers the most destructive industry facing the planet today – and investigates why the world’s leading environmental organizations are too afraid to talk about it.

Animal agriculture is the leading cause of deforestation, water consumption and pollution, is responsible for more greenhouse gases than the transportation industry, and is a primary driver of rainforest destruction, species extinction, habitat loss, topsoil erosion, ocean “dead zones,” and virtually every other environmental ill. Yet it goes on, almost entirely unchallenged.

As Andersen approaches leaders in the environmental movement, he increasingly uncovers what appears to be an intentional refusal to discuss the issue of animal agriculture, while industry whistleblowers and watchdogs warn him of the risks to his freedom and even his life if he dares to persist.

 

Kip Andersen’s environmental awakening came as a result of An Inconvenient Truth. After seeing the film, he began to recycle religiously, turn off lights constantly, shower infrequently, and ride a bike instead of driving. Andersen believed he was doing everything he could to help the planet by following the guidelines of national and international environmental organizations, but his life took a different direction when he found out animal agriculture is the leading cause of environmental destruction. He is the founder of AUM Films and Media, a 501c3 non-profit focused on creating films and media that promote thrivability, compassion, and harmony for all life. He is also an entrepreneur, as well as a certified Jivamukti and Kundalini yoga teacher. He is a graduate of Cal Poly San Luis Obispo school of business and has called San Francisco home for more than a decade.


Keegan Kuhn is a videographer, award-winning documentary filmmaker, and professional musician living in the east bay of San Francisco. He has worked with nonprofit organizations and been involved in social justice movements for virtually his entire life. As a filmmaker, he helps organizations reach an ever-greater community of supporters with the highest possible quality films and videos. His film career has taken him as far as the remote interior of Alaska to document modern homesteaders, to the high deserts of the American west filming the nation’s remaining wild horses, to rural agricultural communities and dirty urban streets. He is motivated by a deep desire to shed light on untold stories of the most downtrodden in our society, and to raise to awareness through greater visibility of social justice issues.

By the time I was 26 years old, I was an orphan. I had lost both my parents to long, debilitating battles with cancer. When my parents were sick, I asked the doctor, “Does nutrition matter?” He said no. And thus my parents continued to eat a poor diet. Would this knowledge have saved my parent’s life? I’ll never know. But shouldn’t every single person have the tools, knowledge, and opportunity to make an informed & educated decision about their own health?

Carlos Caridad is helping people make those informed decisions by showing the world what is possible. I was honored to be interviewed about how I overcame the trauma of losing my parents and turned it into a positive mission to spread awareness of nutrition and healing unresolved issues in order to live a healthy, vibrant life. I am so excited to be part of Carlos’s Healing Cancer in This Century Summit. Remember, your body can heal itself if you give it the tools it needs to do so! Food Heals!

Carlos Caridad became an energy healer & a Reiki Master, when after working as Director of Engineering for 15 years at the Valley Cancer Institute, an Integrative cancer Treatment in Los Angeles, California, his 3 years son was healed from a terrible autoimmune disease cause by excessive vaccinations: 23 at age 3!

His son’s immune system was so distorted, confused and messed up that attacked his own kidneys. He couldn’t urinate and ended up in the emergency room.

After 6 months of suffering, his wife and he found a Homeopathic Doctor in India and an Energy Healer in the US who facilitated their son’s healing in about 3 weeks.

Carlos promised himself that if he found a cure for his son, since the medical establishment didn’t have any, he will spread the word around the world.

This is what inspired Carlos study, practice Energy Healing and to create the Healing Cancer In This Century, to bring a shift on consciousness, making the general public aware we are not just a physical body and how emotional trauma affects our health.

Carlos spends his time helping clients getting their message of health and wellness through videos on the internet, practicing and teaching Energy healing.

Magda Freedom Rod is an environmentalist and lifestyle guide. Through her website Visionary-Lifestyle.com, she helps people achieve their highest potential with conscious eating, yoga and meditation. If you’ve not listened to them yet, check out episodes 24 and 74 where Magda talks about her e-course Conscious Eating 101.com and how to set new intentions for Spring.

Earth Day is an opportunity to love Mother Earth and be thankful for all that she provides. “99.9% of people don’t make the connection that their food choices impact the environment in a major way.” Concern for the planet’s health is what first made Magda switch to a plant based diet. She uses Earth Day to get people to think about their impact on the planet.

What is one thing that we can do to start reducing our carbon footprint and take care of Mother Earth? “Three simple words: Eat More Plants. The more plants you eat, the less meat you eat, and the lighter your footprint on the planet.” Thanks to documentaries such as Cowspiracy (if you’ve not seen this, we highly recommend it!), more and more people are becoming aware of the destructive impact of intensive agriculture. The word is getting out! Going vegan is not just good for the body, it’s good for the planet too.

Magda talked us through just some of the factors that make intensive animal farming so detrimental to Mother Earth:

  • Climate change: animal agriculture is the leading cause of climate change, which is the biggest threat to human survival. The methane from the cows and the deforestation of the rainforest for cattle grazing are the two main factors at play. And grass fed cows are just as guilty, if not more—they produce 40-60% more methane!
  • Overfishing: in 90% of the oceans, big fish are gone. We’re fishing at unsustainable rates and the ocean simply isn’t replenishing. What’s more, for every pound of seafood, there are 5 pounds of bi-kill (whales, dolphins, sea turtles, endangered species that are caught in the nets at the same time).
  • Pollution: toxic waste from animal farms leeches into the soil and contaminates ground water. We were shocked by showing animal feces being sprayed into the environment.
  • Species extinction through habitat destruction: a perfect example is the cute koala, which will be extinct by 2030 because its home is being cleared out to make space for… grass fed cattle! A great film to watch is Racing Extinction by Louie Psihoyos.
  • Amazon rainforest destruction: the lungs of the planet are being destroyed at the crazy rate of an acre a second! 91% of the Amazon has been decimated for animal agriculture.
  • Fresh water: it takes 2500-5000 gallons of water to produce a pound of beef. 50% of the water in the US is used for animal agriculture. Is that a sustainable practice on a planet plagued with drought? We don’t think so!! Especially when a pound of quinoa, rice, greens or hemp can be produced using under 150 gallons of water.

We are facing a frightening situation, and yet if everyone switched to a plant-based diet, Mother Earth would regenerate itself. “Our personal choices are actually really powerful”, says Magda. The more people are inspired to eat more plants and less animals, the faster the world can heal.

Magda’s six-week program Conscious Eating 101 contains all the resources you need to start loving both yourself and Mother Earth. With recipes, videos, homework and books you can deepen your knowledge and transition into a healthier plant based diet. Be part of the solution. Honor Mother Earth and eat more plants!

Emily Turner, the blond behind the brand Gluten Free with Emily, is on the show to teach you everything you need to know about ditching gluten. Think gluten free living has to be boring and tasteless? Think again – Emily shows us how you can enjoy a delicious diet and improve your health with gluten free cooking.

Motivated by a desire to prove that going gluten free can be both fun and easy, Emily founded Gluten Free with Emily to provide people with resources and recipes to help them remove this ingredient from their diet. She started making YouTube videos only two years ago, and is also working on a book. Emily is passionate about her business and works on it day by day to grow it into a success. “I know it will be really rewarding in the end.”

“If your digestion is off, everything is off,” and the increase in people going gluten-free points to many people not feeling good. Even in tiny quantities, gluten can have a reactionary effect on the gut. “Sometimes more than people realize,” says Emily.

Gluten is only found in modern grains—ancient grains like rice, quinoa, amaranth, do not contain any. Wheat has been modified so drastically since the industrial revolution that the human body hasn’t evolved to cope with it. Add to that GMO practices and you’ve got a substance that is impossible to digest. Wheat causes gut inflammation in everyone, not only those suffering from celiac or gluten allergy. This eventually leads to autoimmune diseases and other health issues. In fact, food has changed a lot in the last couple of decades, just look at the size of vegetables in shops these days! The way we’ve changed food has had a massive impact on people’s health.

Emily has celiac, which is an autoimmune disease triggered by eating gluten. Celiac isn’t the same as a gluten allergy, though both share many symptoms and are managed by avoiding gluten. But thankfully, going gluten free doesn’t have to mean a lifetime of boring food!

“I wanted to make gluten free baked goods that actually taste amazing.” Emily knows the baking element is really important to people and her recipes reflect this—we sampled some of her coconut chocolate caramel cookies during the show and OMG—AMAZING! When she became gluten free 14 years ago, Emily started to experiment with different flours – she has 15 different ones in her kitchen!

Gluten free has become a bit of a buzz word of late—everyone seems to be doing it. But it’s important to keep checking labels, because some of the ingredients used to replace gluten are far from healthy! A lot of gluten free options in the shops are really processed, so you might have a whole host of other issues to deal with. Emily encourages people to go back to whole foods—it doesn’t have to be difficult, there are so many amazing recipes out there.

The burning question for anyone thinking of going gluten free: how do I eat gluten free bread? Unfortunately, the bread situation is pretty sad. Emily has gluten free and grain free bread recipes on her website, but tries to steer people away from bread dependency. Many of the breads you can buy in the store are really processed, some even contain corn syrup! Lettuce wraps, leaf wraps, and nori rolls are all great alternatives to a wheat sandwich.

Emily tells us all about why it’s important to buy the best, freshest, highest quality produce possible, and why cooking in your own kitchen is better for your gut health. She also shares her favorite date spots for vegan, plant based and delicious food. Plus, find out how to make vegan, gluten-free strawberry pesto in just 5 minutes using only 6 ingredients!

Chris Gillebeau is an entrepreneur and pioneer in clearing a path for others to live by the rules of their own heart, rather than convention and his philosophy can be summarized in four sentences.

  1. You don’t have to live your life the way other people expect
  2. You can do good things for yourself and help other people at the same time
  3. If you don’t decide for yourself what you want to get out of life, someone else will end up deciding for you
  4. There is usually more than one way to accomplish something

In short, Chris is interested in the convergence between highly personal goals and service to others and has built his life around that.

Chris’s first book, The Art of Non-Conformity, was translated into more than twenty languages. His second book, The $100 Startup, was a New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller, selling more than 300,000 copies worldwide. His latest book, The Happiness of Pursuit, was also a New York Times bestseller.  Every summer in Oregon, Chris hosts the World Domination Summit, a gathering of creative, remarkable people with thousands in attendance. Chris is also the founder of Pioneer Nation, Unconventional Guides, the Travel Hacking Cartel, and numerous other projects and is passionate about helping others live life to the fullest.  And his latest book,  Born For This, teaches you how to win the career lottery and find the work you were born to do!

Our favorite "Manifestation Maven," Alida McDaniel returns to the show today to talk about manifesting exactly what you want in your life. Alida explains that manifestation isn't a passive, "woo woo" kind of thing. It's real and you can actually ensure that you get everything you want in life by setting personal codes of conduct for yourself! This keeps you from resenting the good choices you are making and allows you to choose to make the decisions that will get the outcomes you want in your life. It's a powerful conversation that you won't want to miss!
