Lean Green DAD™ Radio (general)

Today’s guest is Jill McKeever. I discovered Jill shortly after I purchased my Instant Pot and was looking for creative specialties. She is a great Instant Pot chef and has a wonderful YouTube Channel called “Simple Daily Recipes.” The thing that I love about Jill is that she doesn’t take this plant-based journey thing so seriously. I mean, look….it’s serious in the sense that it is important to our health, but she doesn’t let any negativity in...and that is really great. Enjoy Lean Green DAD Radio!

As a clinical cardiologist, a traditional medical school does not teach you any advanced nutrition or prevention methods to help your body fight heart disease, hypertension, and overall heart health. Dr. Jami Dulaney decided to take her practice to the next level by incorporating a plant-based diet into her prescriptions! Today she practices in Florida and focuses on reversing heart disease with a simplistic approach that incorporates a whole food, plant-based diet into each patient's regimen.

Today’s guest is simply known as Swamburger. He is one part of one of my favorite musical groups, Solillaquists of Sound. With five amazing albums and touring across the globe, I discovered this group from a co-worker at one of my past jobs and now I am a huge fan. “Solilla” is a socially conscious group, whose content is centered around life-affirming, justice-oriented views held by the group. Alxandrah and Swamburger make up the MC’s for the group, poet Tonya Combs helps with the lyrics and background vocals, and worldwide DJ, composer, and producer, DiViNCi, mixes the group’s unique sound.

Today’s episode is actually episode 100 and it’s a big one, because we have one of my favorite guests on the show. I was so excited to do this podcast and had the great honor to meet  Mick Foley and his daughter Noelle at an event with my non-profit partner Kulture City last year. Guys, Mick Foley is an awesome human being, so down to earth and just a wonderful person. I can’t say enough about how great he is. In addition to being a husband, father and immortal wrestling superstar, he also cares very much about his health. In fact, a while back he decided he needed a change and started eating better. What did he eat and how did he do it? Well, we will talk about all that, but the significance of this episode number is that the changes that he made ended up helping him lose over one hundred pounds. I’m really excited for you to hear this podcast, so let’s get right into it. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the one and only, hardcore legend, WWE Hall of Fame Superstar, multi-time best-selling author, stand-up comic, spoken word performer and most of all...a dad...Mr. Mick Foley.

Robin Raven is an author who has brought light to a subject that is often not thought about...Santa as a vegan! When Robin saw that most pictures of Santa including him whipping his reindeer as they ride through the night, she decided to use her writing to make a change. This is what created her book "Santa's First Vegan Christmas," which has already been recognized by PETA as one of the top kid-friendly vegan books of the season. Enjoy the podcast!
