    Road Trip... Destination Melbourne, Australia - A Vegetable Party In A Book!

    The PATHPod gals are traveling across the globe to talk with cook, writer and vegelante, Alice Zaslavsky. Alice has been shaking things up down under in her hometown of Melbourne for the last decade plus. The outcome of all that moving and shaking has been the incredible debut of her cookbook, In Praise of Veg. The PATHPod feels like they struck gold connecting with Alice and promoting her beautiful book. Their conversation took place about a year and a half ago and has been sitting on ice, waiting for In Praise of Veg to hit bookshelves in the US. They talk about all things veg and the incredible work Alice has been focused on including children’s food literacy and her time on Master Chef Australia which catapulted her into the broadcasting world. She uses her influence to promote healthy eating with vegetables at the center of the plate and harnesses her karma of connection, allowing that message to stick. Listen to this episode on a walk or while cooking up some veg and find that you will be inspired by this warm and spunky young lady who is taking the world by storm - a veggie storm! Learn more about Alice, her cookbook and her story or follow her across social media @aliceinframes.

    Road Trip... Destination Mt. Vernon, Ohio - Making Broccoli Sexy

    Road Trip... Destination Mt. Vernon, Ohio - Making Broccoli Sexy

    Toni and Jenny continue their road trip, this time landing in Mt. Vernon, Ohio a little town northeast of Columbus. They find themselves with Benji Ballmer, the Dave Matthew’s-loving Dad & owner of YellowBird Foodshed. Yellowbird is an innovative food company that works with over 100 food growers and producers from Ohio to bring the food they grow and harvest to the surrounding community. Some people would call them a CSA (community supported agriculture) but Benji prefers to call his business a foodshed, which is a term used to describe a region of food flows, from the area where it is produced, to the place where it is consumed, including: the land it grows on, the route it travels, the markets it passes through, and the tables it ends up on. He has hit the mark with Yellowbird and has a WHOLE LOT to say about local food and decentralizing our current food system. He gives the PATHPod ladies much to consider and will have anyone who gives this a listen wondering about the origins of the food they eat. Check out Yellowbird or follow them on Instagram at yellowbirdfoodshed and then consider checking into a similar organization in the community where you reside.
