Paleo, Passion, and Purpose - Healing with Naomi Seifter

Naomi Seifter, has battled chronic, food-allergy-related illness since she was a child. Her search for a solution to improve her health led her to discover the beneficial effects of an allergen-free diet. Although she finally understood how to improve her eating habits, it was nearly impossible for her to eat anything that wasn’t prepared in her own kitchen.

To offer a solution, Naomi opened Picnik in 2013, an Austin-based food trailer in a repurposed shipping container. The concept was simple: wholesome food that’s convenient and nutritious. Picnik began serving gluten-free grab-and-go breakfast and lunch items, butter coffee, and bone broth, all with a focus on sourcing locally and using premium ingredients.

As one of the first paleo-friendly concepts in Austin, Picnik quickly gained a devoted following (especially for our grass-fed butter coffee), and in 2016, we opened our first brick-and-mortar restaurant. The following year, we hit grocery stores nationwide to share the goodness of our butter coffee recipes, and opened a second food trailer. Picnik continues to grow and impact the well-being of thousands of people.

If you have a body, this is for you. With me, Alexa Silvaggio

So you have a body right?  We all have that privilege, and yet, most of us subscribe to the though that it's okay to berate our body, treat it kind of awfully, and well, beat it up.  This is no bueno, and has to stop ASAP. 

Why? Because our body is the only place we have to live permanently.  We came on to this planet with this body, and it will stay with us until we depart.  So let's cultivate a more loving relationship to it right now, shall we?  I've got you, I have tools for you, it starts now, so let's get INformation!

You think you know, but you have no idea, with John Duff.

Call him what you want, just be sure you tag him.  John Carroll Duff is a living legend, he is an actor, singer, songwriter, and absolute wordsmith.  You may know him from social media, his wok on stage, or his music video that will soon be going viral (if it hasn't by the time you've listened to this).  Regardless, he drops truth bombs like it ain't no thang, and he is mighty entertaining in the process. He can't help it, he is a magnet, and I know you'll be drawn right it.  The thing you may not know is that he is a deeply spiritual human, who is a soul searcher, meditator, yogi, and seeker to no end.  You will hear about his journey (and mine) from the jungles of Mexico, to the concrete jungles of NYC, to LaLaland.  So come on, let's tune in, turn on and get INformation.
