Back by popular demand!  Julie Piatt returns to the podcast to share about our recent trip to New York, our new online course  “The Ultimate Guide to Plant-Based Nutrition”  that we created in partnership with  MindBodyGreen.com  and our panel presentation at the Apple Store SoHo —  Meet the Innovators: Revolutionizing Health  — moderated byJason Wachob, CEO of MindBodyGreen, with yoga impressario  Tara Stiles  and her husband Michael Taylor of  Strala Yoga, and meditation guru  Charlie Knoles  of the  Veda Center.

As always, Julie drops pearls of wisdom when it comes to taming the ego; how to remain neutral in moments of tension & anxiety; and how to best tap into your higher self and unlock the best, most authentic YOU – a consistent theme of the show.  We cap it off with a free amazing plantpowered dessert recipe (instructions below) and take it out with  Inside City, a track on her album Mother of Mine, by SriMati.

Hope you enjoy the program!

UPDATE! We are now up and running on Soundcloud.  What’s Soundcloud? Another platform to listen and share the podcast.  What’s awesome is that it allows you to share the audio file across your social networks like Facebook and Pinterest and you can even embed this groovy player onto your website or blog.  You can even add comments along the timeline that specifically relate to a certain portion of the show, which is really fun.  Great way to share the content with your friends and colleagues and help spread the word.  So if you enjoyed the show, tell a friend, share away and let’s build this PlantPower Mission together!
