212: Food Heals Q&A With Gorgeously Green’s Sophie Uliano and Sexy Fit Vegan Ella Magers
Today there’s a lot of blonde power in the recording studio! We’re asking two top health & wellness experts your burning health questions. Sophie Uliano is a nutritionist, green beauty expert, and best-selling author of the Gorgeously Green series of books. She runs retreats and events that empower women to transform from the inside out and be the healthiest they can be. This blonde bombshell taught Julia Roberts and Oprah how to go green BEFORE green was cool. Check out previous episodes 178, 185 and 200 for Sophie’s story and more gorgeously green lifestyle tips. Ella Magers was named one of Shape Magazine’s Top 50 Hottest Trainers in America, and we testify that she’s really hot - and vegan. She’s the author of Six Weeks to Sexy Abs, a book that will transform how you exercise for good. Vegan for 23 years, Ella runs online coaching programs helping people make the transition to a plant-based diet and healthy lifestyle. Check out episodes 97, 169 and 170 for Ella’s story. 1: How much exercise do we really need? The latest scientific research says the optimum amount of exercise is 60 minutes a day. Sounds like a lot, but you don’t have to do it all in one go: you can break it up. If you’re busy, do 10 minutes kettlebell in the morning, throw in a bit of high speed walking at lunchtime, and a spot of yoga in the afternoon. Simply being active in your day to day soon adds up when it comes to fitness. Even tidying up can help you work up a sweat. Consider your goals. If you’re focusing on long term health, lower impact exercise is a good choice. If you’re looking for fast results, go for high-intensity workouts. Ultimately, it’s about finding a balance between the two that works for you. 2: I like to drink a glass of wine every day. I’ve got a pretty healthy routine otherwise, but I just need that glass. Is it ok to have wine? Be plant-powered, eat your greens, and enjoy that glass of wine guilt-free. Firstly, wine is packed with antioxidants, in moderation it’s practically a health food (check out Dr. Cabral’s episode where he shares the secrets to drinking healthily). When you deny yourself something you love, you end up compensating by binging on something else. It’s more important to listen to your body. Definitely don’t feel guilty, because guilt changes the molecular structure of our bodies. So pour yourself that glass of wine, and enjoy every sip. 3: What’s the deal with SPF? Is the sun giving us skin cancer or is it good for us? What are you best recommendations for healthy sunscreen? The sun is not the devil. In fact, vitamin D is vital and you should get between 2000-5000 IU every day. A little bit of sunshine is ok (although definitely avoid the baby oil and the aluminum foil), but you need to be cautious and protect yourself from harmful rays. Our top tips: Wear a hat and non-toxic sunblock. You can make your own by mixing coconut oil and zinc oxide. Avoid conventional sunscreens, they’re packed with hormone-disrupting chemicals and don’t even work. Think about your diet. The more toxic you are, the more you’ll burn. 4: Colonics and enemas. Hype or healing tools? There’s a ton of conflicting information out there. Some say it’s lifesaving, others say it might kill you. The truth is somewhere in between. As a short-term fix or to kickstart your healing journey, they can work miracles. In fact, many Food Heals guests have had positive experiences with them. But some say washing away your microbiome is a bad idea, and colonics shouldn’t be relied upon long-term. If you eat clean and if you’re healthy, you don’t necessarily need colonics because you’re giving your digestive system everything it needs to function and support a healthy gut. The body is clever, it naturally detoxifies, and we can assist it in a gentle way by eating certain herbs and vegetables like cilantro, milk thistle and leafy greens. 5: What are the best green products for hair? Evolve H do a great starter kit for hair. Totally green non-toxic hair care. Bogavia do a delicious shampoo, conditioner and serum that really deliver. EO Products shampoos and conditioners are gluten-free, organic, and infused with essential oils that helps your hair grow. 6: How do you kick a Starbucks addiction? If you’re trying to kick the coffee habit, you can try a matcha tea shot instead. It will really energize you without giving you the jitters. Or give Hiball a try, they give you a natural lift. If it’s the take-out coffee habit you’re trying to shift, then look at it from an economic, health, and environment perspective. You can buy really good organic ethical tea or coffee, organic plant milk with no nasties added, make it at home and take it with you in a reusable cup… not only do you save money, but you avoid chemical-packed non-organic coffee and sugary milks (saving your health), and don’t contribute to the mountain of plasticized coffee cups polluting the oceans (saving the planet). When it comes to coffee with benefits, you can’t go wrong with Foursigmatic, instant coffee infused with medicinal mushrooms. 7: What are your thoughts on drinking aloe vera gel? Aloe vera can be good for food poisoning because it flushes you out and helps the intestinal tract to heal. However, you need to use it with caution, because it can be powerful and some people are super sensitive to it. In small amounts it can be delicious, you can mix it with lemon and mint for a healthy healing lemonade. 8: What are some tips to move out of food addiction and into a healthy relationship with our food? The first thing to acknowledge is that food is just a symptom of disordered eating. The cause is deeper. So switching to veganism or vegetarianism doesn’t automatically cure food addiction. You need to begin by exploring what sits behind those behaviors. What are the thoughts and beliefs fueling your eating patterns? Ultimately, when we reconnect to self-love, and are mindful of what is driving us to crave another serving of ice-cream (vegan or not), we can step out of disordered eating and into a healthy relationship with food.

200: Busting Beauty Myths and How to Get Gorgeous For Good with Sophie Uliano
She makes green sexy and cool, she’s a best-selling author and eco Marry Poppins for the new Millennium. We couldn’t think of anyone better to celebrate 200 episodes of the Food Heals Podcast: the gorgeous Sophie Uliano. If you’ve tried and tried to make good habits stick but never quite got there, Sophie’s got the perfect event for you. But first, we’re going to bust some health & beauty myths. Myth 1: Synthetic chemicals are bad, and “natural” ingredients always better and safer. Well, first off, the term “natural” is not regulated at all, so anyone can put that on their label. And when it comes to synthetics, well, that just means “made in a lab.” Let’s take the top four ingredients that really make a difference to your skin: Vitamin C (in the form of ascorbic acid), retinoids, hydroxyacids and peptides. These need to be used in their synthetic forms to be stable. They might be “chemicals” but they’re completely safe for your skin. Best Skin Care Ingredients to Fade Sun Spots Fast: For sensitive skin/prone to breakouts: beta hydroxyl acid (BHA) that contains willow bark which will also gets rid of your black heads. For not so sensitive skin: alpha hydroxy acid to melt away the dead skin cells and reveal your glow. Our favorite brands: Sunshine Botanicals Pumpkin Power Peal; Alpha H; MyChell. Myth 2: Everyone should use retinols. Yes, but also no. Actually, retinols are something everyone should use because as our skin gets older, it thins - that’s what makes under eyes appearing darker. Retinoids help to thicken skin. BUT prescription-strength retinoids can be too harsh and cause damage. It’s all in the dosage. You need a tiny amount, and if your skin is sensitive you need to look out for the gentler forms of retinol. Myth 3: Lectins are really bad for you. Lectins are protein molecules found in almost all vegetables. They’re the plant’s protection mechanism, so can cause digestive upset if eaten raw because some lectins are toxic, for example the ones found in red kidney beans (phytohaemagglutinin) - which is why you should never eat a raw bean! But lately everyone’s been talking about how bad they are for you, and how “dangerous” it may be to eat plants. Let’s get real: there’s no way eating a wholefoods plant-based diet is ever dangerous. It’s the most natural way of eating. What’s more, most lectins are destroyed by cooking. Myth 4: Juicing is better than smoothies. Juices are great, but smoothies are better. Mother Nature created the whole fruit - when you juice you take out so many of the healing nutrients, like the fiber, which keeps your digestive system ticking over nicely. It’s important to eat the whole plant, and smoothies help you do exactly that. Smoothies win. Want more gorgeously green tips from Sophie? Check out our Thanksgiving and New Year’s episodes!
