Tisse Mallon is a Holistic Lifestyle Teacher and Healer. I met Tisse a few years ago when I worked for a local arts agency in town and hired her as a photographer for an event I was doing. She was very kind and I liked her a lot. I had no idea that she was actually on the tail end of struggling with her own self-journey. Now nearly ten years later, we are connected again, but this time in addition to her photography, Tisse is helping others by guiding them how to live a holistic lifestyle. What does that mean? Well, you will find out soon enough, but I was completely inspired by her story, journey and vulnerability in this episode. It gave me hope, inspiration and passion for days and I can’t wait to work with her again. Hope you enjoy!

I have found that just like my friend Raw Food Levi (in a previous episode), that kids can often times inspire other kids to take action and try new things. This is one you will not want to miss!

Gary Beckman is my hero! He happens to be living with Crohn's and Colitis, a disease that most Americans are familiar with by either having it or by knowing someone in their circle that has it. My wife and I run a local support group for the CCFA and are happy to share this episode where we talk with Gary about his disease and how he treats it with a plant-based diet. After you hear his story, I hope that you too will take responsibility for the food that goes into your body...because with a disease like Ulcerative Colitis or Crohn's, there must be a correlation between the food we eat and the disease.

The Foote Family has always been relatively healthy, but after reading a few books including "The China Study," "The Plant Power Way" and watching the popular documentary "Forks Over Knives," they decided that the healthiest thing for them to do was to switch to an entirely plant-based diet. Since "The Feet" are close friends, I asked them (right after I first caught wind that they were making this big transition) if I could track them on their journey. In the second part of this three-part series called "Following The Feet," we will discuss some of their favorite foods, how their friends and family react and how they eat at a restaurant when they choose to go out as a plant-based family.
