219: Little Green Forks

Dr. John Tanner suffered a heart attack while on a morning run when he was promptly rescued by a passerby. During his stay in the hospital, doctors treated him with a stent and told him he was able to now "resume life the way it was" with no direction on how he could lower his risk of a second cardiac arrest. Fortunately, this tragic situation prompted John to dive into the research of the WFPB diet and as a result, John has not had any recurrences of Heart Disease or related conditions!

In this episode, John shares his story, along with some pretty staggering statistics on the link between heart disease and diet.

Plus, stay tuned; John is giving away 100 free books, as well as a BOGO meal from Little Green Forks!

Anisha Blodgett is vegetarian and has an avid passion for fitness and overall wellness. She was ultimately inspired to further develop her own personal recipes for some of her favorite foods (like pizza), while still maintaining a healthy diet.

Thus, Powerhaus was born; the Pacific Beach superfood pizza and smoothie joint with a twist on traditional menus. Powerhaus also offers nourishing wraps, salads and kombucha on tap. Plus, check out their special Veganuary menu for the month of January!

7: Produce Good!

7: Produce Good!

In this episode we speak with Nita Kurmins Gilson, Co-founder of ProduceGood, a food recovery nonprofit in San Diego County. Nita and her team are recovering some of the 40% of food that is wasted daily and delivering this to the 1 in 6 people who are food insecure. They do this by recovering excess from backyards, farms & Farmers Markets; upcycling unwanted produce to the food system; and engaging and inspiring our community to reduce food waste & hunger

We asked Nita what she is most excited about, right now. Here is her inspiring answer:

“KIDS! I just gave a presentation to 5 classes of first grade gardening students at Cardiff Elementary. Their gardening instructor, a wonderful young man named Jonathan Kardos, wanted to teach the kids about the whole food system, including food waste and food insecurity. They offered to donate the harvest from 10 of the 20 beds of veggies they had grown. I believe that Berry Good Foundation granted Mr. Kardos funds to build another school garden in the district, at Ada Harris school. So, it was WONDERFUL to see the full circle! Kids feeding community. They were so stoked to be able to harvest 70 pounds of their own grown bounty and donate this to Community Resource Center, a local charity that does amazing work, in Encinitas.”

Tune in to learn more about the evolution of this incredible company.
