Marina Yanay-Triner is the soul behind Soul in the Raw, a website dedicated to helping people go vegan in a sane, healthy, and delicious way.

Marina’s journey towards a raw vegan lifestyle began when she witnessed her mum’s healing transformation. Marina’s mum had interstitial cystitis, a chronic bladder disorder that left her unable to live a normal life. Doctor after doctor prescribed pills and injections but nothing worked. Taking matters into her own hands, she went on a 28-day water fast, before transitioning to a raw vegan lifestyle. She completely healed herself.

Witnessing her mother’s amazing recovery made Marina want to reconnect with her body. In high-school, she’d been sexually assaulted by her boyfriend. This caused Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, which affected her digestion and emotions. But when she got into raw plant-based food, she was able to heal her physical and emotional trauma.

Marina set up Soul in the Raw to show vegans and wannabe vegans how delicious and flavorful raw plant-based food can be. It’s not just about being vegan or gluten free, it’s about eating whole, plant-based, unprocessed, natural foods! Sign up to her online course and discover how to go vegan, improve your digestion and make delicious raw foods!

 

Marina’s tips for digestion:

Did you know that only 3% of Americans get enough fiber? A diet high in processed foods, alck of fiber, and even negative emotions can have an impact on your digestion. Here are a few of Marina’s tips for healthy digestion:

  • Remove oil – oil is a processed food that your body can struggle to process.
  • Eat plenty of fruit and vegetables.
  • Always add a little fat (nuts and seeds) and fiber to your meals
  • Eat simple – have lots of healthy carbs
  • Take care of your gut bacteria – be smart about eating foods that have prebiotics

 

What you’ll learn:

  • What is the high-raw diet?
  • How to include more living foods into your diet.
  • How eating a little bit less can help your body heal and rejuvenate.
  • How to fast safely.
  • How to reduce your cortisol levels.
  • How to use raw and cooked food to help with energy and sleep.
  • Why oil is difficult to digest, and how to replace it.
  • Why raw food fills you up.
  • Which foods are better cooked.
  • Marina’s secret tip to fight inflammation.

Being hailed as “Sex and the City for Food,” The Food Heals Podcast brings together experts in the field of nutrition, health and healing to teach you the best-kept natural secrets to being a hotter, healthier, happier YOU!

Before going vegan, Nicole Derseweh wanted to travel the world and taste every cheese imaginable. But her health was suffering. As a fitness model, her body looked healthy, but it hid a worrying truth: her high protein diet was stressing out her gall bladder and liver, and her blood pressure was through the roof. With her grandma fighting cancer, and other members of her family unwell, Nicole knew something was wrong. She began looking at her diet.

It took a year between watching her first documentary (Earthlings) to converting to 100% plant-based. The journey was tough, but it was worth it. As soon as she gave up dairy, her heath transformed. But her recovery went deeper than just the physical. Nicole had struggled with anorexia in high school. While she overcame the behaviors by becoming a fitness model, the self-loathing thoughts were still there. When she became vegan, those thoughts disappeared.

Choosing to go vegan was such an empowering and positive decision that it healed her psyche as well as her physical health. And now Nicole is dedicated to inspiring newbie and wannabe vegans with delicious plant-based food that can tempt even the most dedicated carnivore.

If you live close to LA, check out Nicole’s Pop Up event at Feastly’s Berry Loft on 25th May. The food is to die for AND there are great people to talk to – Allison, Suzy and Roxy will be there! This week’s theme is North Africa, so there will be plenty of exotic dishes on the menu. Get 20% off with the coupon code FoodHeals!

Check out Nicole’s YouTube channel for recipes and tutorials to veganize your dishes and live sustainably.

 

Nicole’s tips for living sustainably:

  • Be aware of the plastic you buy and throw away.
  • Go whole-food plant-based.
  • Bring your own bag – for groceries AND clothes shopping.
  • Avoid anything with a palm oil.
  • Check out Imperfect – the produce box delivery that raises awareness of food waste.

 

What you’ll learn:

  • Nicole’s journey from meat eater to vegan.
  • How to give up cheese – cold turkey.
  • Why we are chemically addicted to cheese.
  • How Nicole healed her eating disorder with veganism.
  • How to vote with your dollar and spread the love.

We want to answer some of our listener questions in this episode!

Our first question is from Laura, who wants to know which entrepreneurs we follow.

Here are some of our top favorites:

 

Megan wants to know juicer recommendations?

We have to refer you to Joe Cross’s website for the best juicers, he’s the expert. You can also take a look at BlenderBabes for the best blenders – she tests every one to bring you the best blender reviews.

And finally, do we like guided meditations?

Absolutely!! You really want to check out Sarah Clark’s guided fertility meditation. Highly recommended to help you manifest whatever you want. We love it!

—-

Sarah was diagnosed with premature ovarian failure at 28. She was told she would never have her own children. She went straight to the fertility clinic, and put her name on a list for a donor egg. She was lucky enough to conceive, and now has two beautiful children.

But her health got worse: sinusitis, colds, yeast infections, headaches, vertigo. Later, while studying health coaching, she discovered that she had a food intolerance. As soon as she eliminated allergens from her diet, all her health issues went away. Could these food intolerances have caused her ovarian failure? It’s hard to be 100% sure, but Sarah is now on a mission to let couples know there is a lot they can do with nutritional therapy to improve their fertility.

Check out her 3-day fertility diet challenge. Want to know how fertile you might be? Take her fertility quiz!

How can we balance a healthy lifestyle and living life? Sarah has the answers.

 

What you’ll learn:

  • Why we love Nutribullet.
  • The best juicer if you’re a food blogger.
  • What to do for a great overnight cleanse.
  • The foods Sarah had to get rid of.
  • The top allergens and inflammatory foods.
  • What’s an IGG test?
  • The difference between food allergies and food sensitivity.
  • How you can heal your food intolerances.
  • Should you drink full fat dairy to help your fertility?
  • How much protein you actually need.
  • Why to avoid corn for your health and the planet’s.
  • What we can do to avoid BPA.
  • Why you should never microwave.
  • The best filter to remove heavy metals and fluoride.
  • The best essential oils for boosting fertility.

Today we’re bringing you something a little different. We join our friend Children of The Rainbow producer, Kristie Reeves on the first ever live episode her uplifting new show Rebel Hearts. This is a brand-new show dedicated to inspire you, the rainbow warriors, to change the world. We LOVE it, and we know you will too!

Rebel Hearts, is all about empowering the rebels of this world to make a change. There’s so much negativity and wars and crime going on in the world today. But at the same time things are changing for the better. The change makers are stepping up. A wave of people making a positive difference. You can catch Kristie’s inspiring show on Universal Broadcasting Network and on iTunes!

You go to the doctor because you think they have the answers, but these days doctors aren’t looking at what’s causing the illness. They’re much more interested in giving you a pill. So you take the pill, then you take another pill to counteract the side effects of the first pill. But there IS another option: nutrition, acupuncture, spirituality, emotional work, changing your lifestyle. While their background differs—Suzy was brought up on green juices and vitamins, while Allison grew up eating the standard American diet—they are both passionate advocates of a plant-based diet.

Are you following your dreams? If everyone on this planet did what they wanted, the world would be such a happy place. We wouldn’t even need to compete with each other, because we all have a unique energy and unique gifts… we all have a unique soul song. Whatever you want to do, do it. If you want to sing, if you want to write, if you want to be a parent… do what brings you joy every day. That’s how we flourish.

If we can do a little thing every single day, we can change the world!

Relationships. They are complicated things. Have we put too much expectation onto marriage? People used to get married to carry on the family farm or form new family links. Now, thanks to fairytales and Disney, we expect some perfect thing, to be swept off our feet, to never argue. But in fact, it isn’t the long heart to hearts at 2am that keep a couple together, but rather those everyday moments—going shopping together, taking out the trash so that your partner doesn’t have to, holding each other’s hand during a movie. You need to learn your own love language.

Perhaps because of all the expectations we place on marriage, divorce statistics are through the roof. Leanne Linsky is one of those statistics. Married at just 22 to her first serious boyfriend, Leanne found herself divorced three years later. A few years later, she followed the same pattern: married again, and divorced within a few years. She was crushed. But she was also determined that it would not be the end of her.

After her second divorce, Leanne lay, in a fetal position, on her bedroom floor – she knew she had to make major changes. But she didn’t know what she wanted. Married so young, she didn’t know who she was. Determined to step into her true self, she started saying YES to everything. Her life began to shift. She felt a new strength. She vowed that no matter what she did, she was not going to grow old, with nine cats, bitter and hateful of men.

One of the things Leanne said a big YES to was standup comedy. Once she started taking the classes, she was hooked. Joining the two things she knew best, comedy and divorce, Leanne launched Life Lafter Divorce two years ago, offering improv classes to fellow divorcees. Improv is about not caring, it’s about letting go—you never know what’s coming. If you try to control it, it fails…. A bit like a marriage! Leanne has created a safe space where people can let go of their pain, realize they are not alone, and use laughter to heal. Her podcast interviews a variety of guests about their divorce experiences and “haha” moments. Check out her website for her next improv workshops!

 

What you’ll learn:

  • How Suzy fell in love with improv.
  • How comedy can help you heal.
  • Can playing be more powerful than morphine for pain relief?
  • Why questions are better than affirmations.
  • How to reframe your affirmations to help them work better.
  • How to retrain your brain.
  • How to figure out your own primary and secondary love languages
  • Why you should never go to bed angry.
  • How to quickly resolve conflict in relationships.
  • What it takes to make a happy marriage.
  • Leeann’s tips for anyone going through a divorce.

@15:32 if it feels gay do it more!

According to the stats, we’re eating on average two portions of fruits and vegetables a day…. And this includes ketchup and potato fries! Truth is, for optimum health, we need to be eating more like between 5 and 10. Sounds like a lot to chew? This is where blending comes in. You can throw it all in a blender and drink your veggies!

Tarashaun always knew she wanted to work for herself. She began her entrepreneurial journey by selling jewelry on eBay. When she bought a high-power blender, she knew she had to share its magic with others. Smoothies, soups, ice cream, grinding grains—the versatility of this machine motivated Tarashaun to launch BlenderBabes and inspire people to make more than just smoothies. If you’re confused about blending, BlenderBabes is the site for you. She takes blenders through rigorous testing and offers honest reviews to help you choose your perfect kitchen companion.

Tarashaun also has an incredible healing story to share. She overcame a decade of disordered eating and wants to share her experience to help others. So many of us have an unhealthy relationship with food. For Tarashaun, reading The Secret opened her eyes to how she could use self-love and acceptance to heal. An eating disorder doesn’t have to last forever—it is possible to move forward from it, and self-love is an essential part of that.

If you want to dive into health, why not give Tarashaun’s Blender Cleanse a go? It’s a five-day program that helps you prepare your body for the cleanse, and provides enough nutrients and diversity to keep you satiated. Unlike a juice cleanse, you won’t be “hangry.”

  

What you’ll learn:

  • Juicing vs blending: which is best?
  • What happened during Suzy’s juice fast.
  • The most important part of any detox – that most people fail to do.
  • One ingredient to help curb “hangry-ness.”
  • The theory behind cleansing.
  • How can blending help you heal?
  • Why you need to include potatoes into your diet.
  • How step into self-love.
  • How to make a vegan bulletproof coffee, with a twist.
  • Tarashaun’s top tips for newbie food bloggers or anyone starting their business.

  

The Blender Babe’s super easy and delicious recipe for kids or picky eaters:

  • Frozen acai
  • Vegan yogurt unsweetened
  • Red cabbage
  • Berries
  • A banana

@12:50 Chained to your juicer?

One in two people in the USA suffer from a chronic illness—365 million people. Amy Kurtz was one of them. She understands the loneliness that comes with a debilitating condition, and the frustration of going to doctor after doctor being offered nothing but pills.

At 14, Amy’s life changed dramatically. She bent down to pick up a book, and felt a shooting pain up her spine. And this pain simply didn’t go away. For ten years, she took the heavy-duty pain killers and muscle relaxants she was prescribed. Then, at 25, during a trip abroad, she picked up a parasite that tipped her body’s balance completely. She gained 30 pounds in 30 days. She couldn’t keep any food down, and she couldn’t go to the bathroom. She was bedridden for a month. Specialists told her food allergies didn’t matter, and kept prescribing antibiotics and pills. Finally, a doctor told her that her colon would never work, and she might as well have it removed. This was rock bottom.

But Amy didn’t give up. She knew she had to do something to help herself. She stopped eating gluten. Just two days after, her pain disappeared, as though it had never existed. She embarked on a holistic healing journey, empowering herself with the knowledge to heal her mind, body and spirit. She’s now a certified health coach, Pilates instructor, author and speaker.

Chronic conditions are often invisible – people don’t see them, and those suffering rarely speak about their illness for fear of being belittled or ridiculed. Amy woke up one day and realized she had to write a book and share her story. She wanted to create a collection of information to help people with chronic illness rebalance their bodies and move into health. Her book Kicking Sick is a collection of healing stories and Glow Warrior strategies to heal the spiritual, emotional and nutritional. Written to spark a new way of thinking, Kicking Sick helps tailor your lifestyle to transform you from the inside out and get you back into balance.

  

What you’ll learn:

  • What it was like being “the sick chick.”
  • How Amy overcame victim-mode and transformed herself.
  • What made Amy decide not to go down the conventional medicine route.
  • How to move away from fear into healing.
  • The difference between healing and curing.
  • How to become a Glow Warrior and inspire others.
  • Tips for budding authors and holistic entrepreneurs.
  • The first place to start to make yourself feel better.

 

Our favorite moments:

@4:47 This is horrifying!

@6:41 Food allergies don’t matter??

@10:10 The healthiest chick we know.

@13:09 What are your secrets??

@16:40 I’m going to seek what’s best for me.

@21:03 Breasts are sacred.

@24:04 Am I turning you on?

@30:25 I didn’t even know that I could write.

@37:35 I can mother myself!

Elite Man Magazine was born. The website is a collection of advice for men, to help them gain confidence and become true gentlemen. His podcast interviews the best minds from the business, dating, health, fitness and social worlds.

Depression is characterized by regret of the past; anxiety is fear of the future. Either way, you’re not in the present moment. The key to overcoming both these mental conditions is getting back to the now. Justin’s got nine simple steps to help you do just that:

  1. Realize you’re not going crazy. Depression happens to most of us at one time or another.
  2. Use a combination of hypnosis, meditation or yoga (Justin’s favorites are Eckhart Tolle, Paul McKenna and Andrew Dobson)
  3. Live in the present moment.
  4. Exercise, move around
  5. Get enough sleep! We’re typically under-sleeping, but this increases our stress, causes cortisol levels to go through the roof and decreases serotonin.
  6. Improve your diet—good fats, complex carbs, healthy protein—optimize what you’re putting into your body.
  7. Take supplements—one of the best anti-depressant supplements is magnesium.
  8. Socialize! We need human connection to fully thrive.
  9. Find a purpose in life. Whether it’s a hobby, career change or following a passion. Find the thing that makes you jump out of bed every day, and go after it.

 

What you’ll learn:

  • Why you’re not going crazy if you’re depressed.
  • Justin’s go to strategy for overcoming depression
  • How to self-hypnotize
  • Which book changed Allison’s life?
  • Can you get too much sleep?

The Food Heals Podcast is hosted by Allison Melody and Suzy Hardy – two self-proclaimed natural chicks who will rock your world and change your beliefs about health!

Mel Bee became interested in nutrition after she overcame bulimia and depression in her early twenties. When she transitioned to a plant-based lifestyle she realized just how much food can contribute both to disease, and to wellbeing. After a decade of research into detoxing and holistic plant-based nutrition, she’s on a mission to spread the word. Leaving behind her 9 to 5, Mel got into freelance writing and set off traveling in an old VW campervan—with some funny tales to tell! As a detox coach, she helps women step into vibrant health by detoxing their cupboards and their minds from junk foods and junk thoughts.

Speaking of rubbish foods, did you know that over 75% of “edible” products in supermarkets are considered “non-food” items – yep, they’re THAT processed. The situation seems better in Europe, but even there, junk foods and associated diseases like diabetes are on the rise. The dire food situation seems to be matched by the scary political and environmental issues we’re facing.

So how do we deal with it? We send out love. That’s the only energy powerful enough to bring about positive change in the face of so much darkness. We’re not powerless. Each of us can choose to make every decision with love –be it the food we eat, the brands we buy, the way we behave towards others. We can make a difference every day. For Mel, this is how we create a greener, fairer, happier world.

 

What you’ll learn:

  • When to put food back on the shelf.
  • How the US and Europe differ in terms of food regulations.
  • What happened with Brexit?
  • How stress causes disease.
  • The number one thing that will sabotage a cleanse.
  • How to be plant-based and healthy on the road.
  • Two super simple and delicious salad dressings you can make anywhere (even in a van).
  • Three easy detoxing tips.
  • Why self-love can seem so difficult.

 

Our favorite moments:

@6:08 Cabbage soup diet?

@8:32 Sometimes you have to indulge

@13:16 I laugh because I’m scared

@17:36 It’s time to stand up and speak out

@24:53 Look, he’s an asshole.

@32:05 Garlic shakes?

@35:47 Digital nomading at its finest.

@40:46 When you shine, other people shine.

Our guest today has been an entrepreneur since his early teens. Always a wheeler-dealer, Charlie Fyffe would sell Gatorade and give car rides in high school to make extra money. Having always loved brownies, selling them seemed a natural progression, and Charlies Brownies was born. But seeing that some people couldn’t enjoy the brownies made Charlie want to create a product that was not only delicious, but healthy and ethical as well. Charlie’s Brownies now makes organic, gluten-free, refined-sugar-free, vegan cupcakes (and we tasted them – they will blow you away). Charlie’s even working on a lower GI version for diabetics. And what about “special” brownies? You’ll have to listen to the episode for our take on that!

But Charlie does more than simply make amazing cakes. He also helps to revitalize the health and eating habits of underserved communities. This can be incredibly challenging in communities where there are no health food shop and where the nicest building houses a fast food restaurant. But Charlie is undeterred—there are ways to be plant-based on a budget. Charlie also gives talks about entrepreneurship, to encourage young people to follow their dreams: there is an alternative to the dead-end job option!

Food is everything for Charlie, he loves to teach people how what they eat and what they invest in affects them, their communities, the farmers and the earth. We have a choice every time we eat: we need to invest in food that is renewable, sustainable, and socially responsible. Food that supports the planet and conserves the earth for future generations: Plant-based food.

You can make big changes every day, through the food you choose to buy and eat. And for Charlie, this sustainable way of life can be delicious.

Come and check out Charlie’s Brownies at the LA Vegan Street Fair on 26th March where he’ll be launching three new mystery products!

You can buy Charlie’s Brownies in Yoga Urt in Glendale or if you want to order send Charlie a message.

  

What you’ll learn:

  • How Charlie transitioned his business to gluten-free and vegan.
  • What helped Charlie stay vegan.
  • The two super ingredients in Charlie’s brownies.
  • The reason Charlie was inspired to become an entrepreneur.
  • What mystery ingredient is non-toxic, and has powerful anti-tumor, anti-anxiety, and anti-inflammatory effects?
  • How the vegan diet changed Charlie’s life.
  • How to encourage people about healthy food.
  • What makes fast food restaurants criminal?
