Join the Food Revolution Summit to Reboot Your Health

Food Summit

The 8th Annual Food Revolution Summit begins later this month.

This is something I listen to every April. These conversations have given me more nutritional and medical knowledge than any other activity I’ve ever participated in, including the times I’ve met with a nutritionist about my own diet.

I’ve gained an extra 10 pounds since January, so I’ll be listening with an aim to re-inspire my efforts to eat well and exercise enough.

The sessions are free for nine days. After that, the Food Revolution sells mp3 copies of all the interviews as a way to fund raise for their organization.

I’m always an affiliate of the event, so if you use my affiliate link to sign up for the conference and then you purchase something, I get a commission. Thank you if you choose to support my work this way.

The first time I listened to this event, I heard the following speakers:

  • Mimi Guarneri speaking about Integrative Health.
  • David Perimutter presenting the gut-brain connection.
  • Ron Finley who spoke about growing healthy food and communities.
  • Jane Goodall, who needs no presentation.
  • David Katz, who spoke the Optimal Diet for Human Beings; and
  • Susan Pierce Thompson spoke about achieving permanent weight loss, and who was in my first-ever coaching cohort with Ryan Eliason (I’ll be an affiliate for his program in June).

Have you ever participated in this summit? If so, who were your favourite speakers.

Earth Day and Easter Monday in Montreal

Earth Day and Easter Monday fall on the same day  this year–next Monday.

Grand Potager will hold a free family urban agriculture day at the Verdun Municipal Greenhouses and Coop CAUS will participate.

If you have children ten years old and younger, be sure to come at 11 a.m. for an easter egg hunt in the vegetable gardens. Every kiosk will have activities for the young ones all day long.

You can also pick up compost, seeds, seedlings, gardening gloves, shears and other items for the season ahead.

Then, in May, the entire island of Montreal celebrates gardening with Cultiver Montreal. There will be workshops all month.

Hope to see you there!

Somewhere in the Middle with Michele Burard

Interview

Had a wonderful conversation with Somewhere in the Middle host Michele Burard that was posted Friday night.

Michele’s podcast features conversations with wellness experts, coaches, entrepreneurs, politicians and writers. Her goal is to create a:

 safe place where we can learn and grow together. We discuss a variety of topics, ranging from love to politics to money and business and beyond, because the human experience is wide and varied.”

We spent an hour talking about creative entrepreneurship, spirituality, family history and working hard to profile real people in a way that helps us understand the present.

Michele was born in the deep south so we talked a lot about colonization, democracy and the differences between living in a hot climate and surviving in what Michèle calls the “frozen north.”

Hope you enjoy our conversation.
