We may be starved of our freedom, but we do not need to go hungry. Food sovereignty is my next goal as we enter a new year – and potential apocalypse. I’m not talking about hoarding cans of beans from the supermarket. Instead, I’m exploring how we can create a sustainable, healthy food revolution in your own backyard. It’s called a Food Forest.
Jim Gale, the mastermind behind Food Forest Abundance, is here to fertilize your curiosity. He’s on a mission to facilitate food forests in every (misused) lawn and corner of soil in the world. In this episode, we discuss how to grow your own food, profit from produce, and create an abundant food ecosystem for generations to come!

CACAO BLISS. Back in the day, I used to have to take about 50 ingredients to make an elixir or a smoothie. I had to mix them together, make a big mess, and it took up a bunch of space in the cabinet. But Cacao Bliss has changed the game. Now I have amazing ceremony-grade organic ingredients like raw cacao, turmeric, black pepper, MCT powder, cinnamon, monk fruit, coconut nectar, lacuma, mesquite, and Himalayan salt all in one. So this is the ultimate superfood elixir, but it really tastes like chocolate milk. It's just absolutely fantastic.
