179: The Most Interesting Facts About Food & Aging We’ve Ever Heard + Thanksgiving Tips


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 their inspiring 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! Listen now!


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 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.
