Growing up, Katie’s family, like many, showed love through big portions of low-quality food. During her childhood, Katie was an athlete, exercising up to 6 hours a day and eating whatever she wanted. However, once she got to college, she gained 60 pounds. She fell in love with feminism and used it to present a mask of not caring about her weight. Deep down she wasn’t happy with her body and her relationship with food became dysfunctional.  Suffering from a combination of overeating, bulimia, and exercisorexia, her days were focused around working out, eating food and avoiding food.  She was able to overcome her eating disorder thank to the Overeaters Anonymous 12-step program.

Katie learned that freedom isn’t as much about not having any boundaries, but more about creating boundaries that help you be the best version of yourself.

Early in her life, Katie wanted to make a big impact. Passionate about life and wanting to live big, she now uses her business to do just that. She married her two interests – business and raising women up – to create Biz Women Rock, a resource provider and podcast that helps entrepreneurial women grow their business and live a life of freedom and purpose.

Her podcast is one of our personal favorites and provides the tools you need to create the business of your dreams. Her private Facebook group is a hub for businesswomen from all over the world to share their ups and downs, advice, masterminds and more. You’ll also find all the details for Katie’s transformational events. Join her at her Business Retreat in a luxury mansion in Orlando from December 1-3 or see Katie (and Allison) live at Podfest MultiMedia Expo on February  8-11 in Orlando (We’ll be there too -- get your tickets here!), and Social Media Marketing World in March 2018.

And if you want to watch a beautiful visual image of the podcast movement and why so many of us are choosing this platform to share our message, then check out Katie’s husband, Chris Krimitsos’, beautiful documentary The Messengers

Today we’re back with two VIP guests: Jay and Joy, aka the Jing Slingers. We can’t get enough of these guys! Check out episodes 112 and 151 for Jay and Joy’s story.

The Jing Slingers’ mission is to elevate, educate, and illuminate their clients with tonic herbs and superfoods. Their beautiful book Food with Benefits groups together recipes for the foods you love – perfect for the holidays. That means ice cream and donuts, mashed potatoes and gravy, and even eggnog and pecan pie! Food is at the epicenter of what Jay and Joy do, but it’s food with a difference, food that loves you back. Super healthy, super easy, cleverly conscious food that will supercharge your life force!

We always preach: eat more plants! But it’s more complex than just “eat kale.” Did you know that many plants contain lectins? These natural plant-producing proteins stop certain insects and humans from eating them but can also cause inflammation. Some of the foods highest in lectins also happen to be the highest in antioxidants, too, like tomatoes, quinoa, goji berries, eggplant, which can seem confusing! But don’t worry. Jay and Joy share the secrets to removing lectins from plant foods and getting the most nutritional benefits from any plant. The magic is in the preparation!

Tune in and discover how you can have a healthy Thanksgiving, stick to your plant-based diet and avoid the dreaded muffin top!

The Jing Slingers’ top tips to prevent colds and flus during the holidays:
• Activated charcoal binds toxins out of the intestinal tract.
• Vitamin D3 helps your t-cells fight infections and viruses.
• Mitolife DHA oil supports your immune system.
• DNA detox rids your body of toxins and heavy metals so that you can feel strong, awake and revitalized.

Holiday Gift Guide:
If you’re into detoxing, or have a friend or loved one who’s into it, then we’ve scored the PERFECT discount code for you. The Jing Slingers have created the DNA Detox, an aqueous Zeolite solution that gets right into your mitochondria to detox your body at a cellular level. Zeolite is used in hazardous situations to mop up toxic spills and make sure they don’t contaminate the soil or ground water. Jay and Joy have formulated it into a product you can safely take to pull toxins, mercury, heavy metals, and even glyphosate, out of your cells. We use it, and it WORKS. So if you want to start 2018 looking and feeling amazing, go to their foodhealsnation.com/jing and save $5 a bottle when you buy three or more- for a total of $15 off! Makes a great gift for friends & family too!

Stay tuned because Jay and Joy will be back on the podcast in the New Year to share their strategies for your healthiest and most delicious year yet.

It’s almost Thanksgiving — an exciting time of year to be grateful for what you have. But it can also be a stressful time for many. The holidays can be full of triggers — family, food, grief — sparked by an uncle whose politics you deplore, being tempted by unhealthy dishes, or the memory of lost loved ones who used to share the holidays with you.

These gatherings can be so emotionally charged that they can destroy your health goals —raising your stress level and leading you to having that third helping of pecan pie. You’re not alone. Today, we’re deep-diving into the emotional triggers the holidays can bring up with special guest, Sophie Uliano, to help you have a happy, healthy Thanksgiving. After all, this is the time for gratitude, togetherness, and love.

Sophie Uliano’s Tips for a Healthy Happy Thanksgiving

Sophie's mission is to help you feel amazing in your own skin and be excited about who you are. We are delighted our Gorgeously Green girlfriend shared some of her favorite Thanksgiving tips to help keep your vibration high this holiday season:

  • Be prepared on every front. If you’re going into a difficult family situation, spend a few days getting ready. Anticipate what might happen and decide how you will react. Journaling is extremely helpful to begin the process of letting go of those feelings.
  • If you’re going away for a few days, pack some healthy treats to take with you (granola, healthy smoothie mix, nuts, almond milk, etc.).
  • Remember what the holidays are about: It’s about love and spending time with people you care about and being grateful for the good in your life.

Underneath the triggers, stress, and possible arguments, we’re all one. We are human beings and we all want to be loved. So let’s give some love and gratitude during the holidays! Stay tuned because Sophie will be back for our New Year special episode to talk about how you can detox your home with organic and natural products.

Every second, 300 animals are killed for food. These animals are the ghosts of our food machine. Tortured, exploited, abused and murdered, farm animals are voiceless and unable to defend themselves which is why we need to stand up for them. That’s exactly what today’s guest, Nathan Runkle, has dedicated his life to doing.

No one would stand by and watch a puppy or kitten get slammed head first into the ground yet that’s exactly what happens to piglets. It’s considered a standard agricultural practice and as such, is exempt from animal cruelty charges. The law doesn’t provide protection for “food animals” however, the only difference between pets and animals for slaughter is our perception. Some are simply unfortunate enough to be born as a species that society says doesn’t matter.

Nathan grew up on a farm in a small town. At 15 years old, after witnessing the brutal murder of a piglet, he founded Mercy for Animals. He started by carrying out open rescues: going into farms’ undercover and rescuing injured animals. Trawling through manure pits, witnessing first-hand the cruel conditions, and investigating the horror of slaughterhouses made him even more determined to give animals a voice and drive positive change in the world.

Today, Mercy for Animals is an internationally recognized organization dedicated to animal rights and putting an end to the cruel and unsustainable factory farming industry. Let’s face it, slaughterhouses don’t have a place in a humane, peaceful world. In order for us to survive as a species, we need to switch to a plant-based diet.

The good news is that on top of a growing vegan movement, cellular agriculture is growing quickly—it won’t be too long before clean meat (meat without murder) makes it to supermarket shelves!

Nathan has just written a book entitled “Mercy for Animals” to inspire people to take action on behalf of farm animals. It tells the story of the unsung heroes of the animal advocacy movement who risk their lives, physical safety and emotional wellbeing to shine a light in some of the darkest places in our society. This book will empower you and show you how you can make a difference to animals and help create a kinder, more sustainable world.

Get involved! Here are some of Nathan’s tips for animal advocacy:

• How you can live your own values to the fullest? How can you embody loving compassion and respect?
• Adopt a vegan diet—it’s the best thing to do to help planet and the animals.
• How can you be more proactive in driving change?
• Get involved in animal rights: animals can’t lobby for new laws; we need to do that for them. Check out Mercy for Animals for initiatives.
• Use social media to spread information, hold companies accountable, and demand change.
• Find your own unique voice; use your own perspective and talents to drive change for animals.
Make donations. Money is energy. Taking on the 1 trillion-dollar global meat industry takes resources. Animal rights organizations need support.
