On today’s show we welcome Raquel Tavares, who has founded Fourth and Heart, a young company making ghee-based products. If you are not familiar with ghee, it's clarified butter, so it is derived from butter but without the milk solids. Fourth and Heart takes the process a step further and infuses its ghee with incredible flavors like Madagascar Vanilla Bean, truffle, garlic, and chocolate amongst others. They also whip it to give it a really amazing, soft texture. Raquel’s company has been growing rapidly, and we chat to her about this as well as her reasons for starting the company and her personal connection to ghee. If you are a food or a cooking nerd and you want to learn more about one of the best fat sources out there, in one of its best forms, this is the episode for you! Listen in to hear all about it.

With gyms filling up and the January diets kicking in, we imagine that eating more chocolate is probably not on most people’s 2018 goal list. But let’s face it, chocolate is hands down one of the best things in life, and what’s even better than sliced banting bread is that eating chocolate today can truly be guilt-free, delicious, and nutritious. There are so many amazing options that are Paleo, dairy-free, vegan, raw, and infused with healthy herbs—turning what used to be a guilty pleasure in to a health food. We all know about the incredible benefits of raw cacao, and so we want to give a shout out to all the people making it so darn tasty! On today’s show we welcome one of these people. His name is Sage Dammers and he is the founder of Addictive Wellness—a company making raw, heirloom, artisanal chocolate and super herb elixir blends. Whether you need energy, a sense of calm, or even a love potion, Sage’s chocolates are designed for various states of being. Today, Sage shares a bit about some of the properties of these ingredients and how they can change your life. He also shares his own healthy practices, like cold water immersion, and why his branding involves a triumphant gold unicorn. If one of your New Year's resolutions is to eat more chocolate, you’re welcome.
