Also how it was to write a cookbook as a newly married couple, who share their own business together, in the middle of a global pandemic. They received the first copy/sample of the cookbook about a 2 months ago and how it brought so many emotions. They discusses those feelings of shock, happiness, pride, and gratitude. Together, working so hard in such a short deadline for this cookbook really pushed the envelope for Steve and Bailey. They chat about the struggles of the photography aspect of the cook book.

Ep. 56: Everyday Detox and Non-Toxic Living With Dr. Vivian Chen
In this episode, Bailey has an amazing and insightful conversation with a brilliant medical doctor in the wellness world, Dr. Vivian Chen. Together the share their experiences with detoxing from everyday chemicals in our home and education on non-toxic living.  Dr. Chen shares her education from her schooling as a western UK Doctor, and her expertise on helping people find a way to empower themselves through little everyday changes. To focus on lifestyle changes to help heal the body naturally. Western medicine is wonderful, but she sees health through a more integrative approach to help fight chronic diseases. Although there is a pill for every ill, we should address the underlying issues rather than band-aiding over problems. Together they see "Food is medicine" and that we as an individual, we have more power than we are thought to believe when it comes to minimizing toxicity from our life. Together, they talk about Dr. Chen's story and the driving forces that led her onto this journey of wellness beyond the western medicine approach. A main force was her children. Her daughter had life threatening struggles early on in life with allergies, which had Vivian digging deeper for answers on how to help her daughter. As they changed her daughters diet, they began to see what the root causes were, instead of the reactions. What began as allergies with dairy, quickly turned into looking at all the toxicity in our conventional food. Which then led to looking at the toxicity beyond food, to our general cleaning products we use in our household, to the daily environment we surround ourselves with, and to the whole world we live in.  She eventually changed her life, and her family’s life by changing their diets, ridding their lives of toxicity as much as possible, and educating herself and others on the products we use everyday. She notices very common illnesses among many different people, and she believes it’s coming from many common root sources. She uses the metaphor: if see ourselves as a garden, with many different plants and with soil lacking certain important nutrients, how it’s going to show up will be different in different plants. If we change the soil and replenish it, we will start to see results in all the plants, just like ourselves. They dive deep into some of the many sources of toxic load and the science behind it. How not to focus on just one toxin, but one all of them in our life. Learning to minimize toxins is an everyday task. Your everyday actions make a huge different. You won't want to miss this episode for all the juicy insights on how to lower toxic load in your household and life overall. You can't avoid toxins, but we can take action steps that absolutely make a difference for our health in the long run.  Want more tips on non toxic living?

Ep. 55: Energy Intelligence With Founder & CEO of Rasa, Lopa Van Der Mersch
In this podcast episode, Bailey shares a conversation with Founder & CEO of Rasa (Adaptogen-packed wellness tonics) Lopa Van Der Mersch. Together they talk all about our morning habits/routines that are either helping us nourish our bodies with energy or extract energy from our bodies.   Lopa explains about Rasa the company which specializes in super functional coffee alternatives and adaptogenic tonics. Lopa breaks down how she came up with the idea to start Rasa and her passion to change how we approach our morning routine. How we need something to nourish us, rather than to extract energy from us. This helped fuel the idea to start the rasa coffee alternatives. It got her thinking.....couldn't we put tons of amazing herbs in this morning ritual that’s fantastic for people's health, stress, energy, libido, mood, and immune system?? Yes!! She worked with professional herbalists on how to find the right balance of herbs that’s safe, delicious, and most importantly, that have these functional purposes. Together they talk about their experiences with coffee, including the negative ones which fueled an increase in anxiety, irritability, and mid day crashes. One quote she saids is “Coffee borrows energy from tomorrow to feed today.”, which many of us don't think about when we reach for that cup of Joe in the early hours of the day. Coffee spikes your cortisol just like stress which effects our energy all day.  “If either of us said, I need to have two glasses of wine in the morning, then I’m totally fine” That's what we do with coffee, no one questions it. It creates a significant amount of dependency in the body. Your body gets addicted to it, and stops creating its own cortisol, which creates this burn out later. So many people now are becoming burnt out from this 0-100MPH with everything now slowly opening back up in this post pandemic life. It's so important to balance our energy levels without being on this hamster wheel of caffeine in the morning and alcohol in the evening.  Now more than ever, its important to be taking care of yourself, which all starts in your morning and how you start your day. It's in the little things that add up, to eventually help or hurt our mental health overall. One example used was paying attention to your breath, because it is the easiest way to help regulate your nervous system. She also gives suggestions for people who are trying to wean off coffee.  Lastly, they briefly go over the product itself, the different varieties, the sustainability of the packaging, the adaptogenic ingredients, and the importance of others companies to follow suit. “It really is an offering from the heart. Something that will have impact on the world. Something that will help change peoples lives. Something that will be a fair exchange of energy.” Whats next for Rasa? They are working on their fully compostable packaging right now, along with more varieties and flavors.

Ep. 54: Decriminalizing Nature With Carlos Plazola
In this episode, Bai and Carlos Plazola, founder of Decriminalize Nature sit down together and talk all things plant medicine.  Carlos is on a mission to help us as humans to reconnect with the plant world and the land we live on. He talks about his life and his path to change the negative stigma against plant medicine like mushrooms, psilocybin, peyote, and more. His goal is to improve human health and well-being by decriminalizing and expanding access to entheogenic plants and fungi through political and community organizing, education, and advocacy. He envisions happier, healthier individuals and communities who have reconnected to nature and entheogenic plant and fungi traditions and practices.  Together they spark light into the history of ancient cultural traditions around growing food, and the healing properties that our ancestors used from growing their own food. They believe the danger right now is the lost connection and relationship we have with nature. We need this movement, to help us heal nature and ourselves.  They also touch base on how to allow these medicines to heal our past traumas emotionally and mentally through low dose experiences. Hopefully one day to have a better balance between the ancient ways of wisdom and the new ways of technology.  Remember the earth is here talking to us, if only we have the focus and patience to listen to her. As Carlos saids it, "Put your hands in the dirt. Find that connection!"  Whats next for decriminalizing nature? They are helping provide support and momentum to pass a bill in congress in California to help decriminalize entheogenic plants, restore our root connection to nature, and improve human health and well-being.  You can check out and learn more info on instagram @decriminalizenature   Get a month free of our virtual cooking classes at www.chefbai.kitchen/cookvibeheal using code: COOKWITHME Don't forget to pre-order my upcoming cookbook "Cook.

Ep. 53: Spilling The Beans On Big Agriculture With Cool Beans CEO Tyler Mayoras
In this episode, Bailey talks with passionate impact investor and entrepreneur Tyler Mayoras CEO of Cool Beans, which is a company bringing whole food plant based goodness to the frozen aisle. They talk about Big agriculture and the health effects, the ineffectiveness of the entire system, and the environmental impacts from meat and dairy. We learn about how veganism is growing and becoming a larger force for good each day more and more. They touch base on soil degradation and animal emissions running into our water, food, and the land we live in. How it affects not just the nearby communities but how these factors influence and change our society on a grander scale.  They chat about sustainable products like Cool Beans that have a large responsibility to have strong ethics and values against polluting the natural environment. Tyler explains how Cool Beans first came to fruition, where it is now, and where they are expecting to grow. They are all about real ingredients with real sustainable packaging to fill the frozen food isles.  Of course they talk about beans and the amazing health effects like extra fiber, gut health, and clean plant based protein. Not only are beans good for you, but they are also good for the soil. They help bring back nitrogen back into the soil and help retain that nitrogen for later use. Thus, this  creates more nutrients for the animals in the soil which creates a healthier environment for growing overall.  What's next for Cool Beans? Trying to reach all underserved communities that struggle with providing easily assessable plant based foods. Lastly, their top goal be in every local gas station and convenient store nationwide.  You can check out the products and more on instagram @luvcoolbeans  Get a month free of our virtual cooking classes at www.chefbai.kitchen/cookvibeheal using the code: COOKWITHMAY Don't forget to pre-order my upcoming cookbook- "Cook.

Ep. 52: Breaking Open With Fallon Lev
In this episode, Bai sits down and chats with OB resident, yoga teacher, mentor, and heart worker Fallon Lev.  They briefly chat about hosting spiritual retreats and the amazing magic that unfolds naturally within them. Then they dive deep into the human experience after a life changing event. Just 7 months earlier, Fallon had been hit by a reckless car driving home on her vespa scooter, and thrown from the vehicle, and ended up in the hospital with considerable injures throughout her body. She explains her view of the human experience when life's gifts that we all take for granted, are taken away in an instant. The way she so gracefully speaks of her accident and her journey how to heal mentally, physically, and emotionally are some of the most powerful words you'll ever hear.  Every single day after this moment, she was flooded with support, love, and words of kindness that helped her get through her toughest moments. Using social media, she was able to connect and begin so many beautiful relationships with her community, near and far. This journey allowed her to open her heart in ways that she never could imagine. By making herself so vulnerable, she was able to break open, and pour her gratitude back through her words. By writing down her feelings and thoughts, she was able to find peace, and tranquility in place of anger and resentment.  Whats next for Fallon? The future is always unknown, and right now is the only time we can make decisions that can effect our life. Instead of being taken out of the present moment with fear of the future, they chat about how to to slow down and be grateful for the now, otherwise we can miss out on our whole life. To allow all your energy to sit with yourself, and really be in the conversation and in the moment. She's now on the road of healing, and is slowly working her way back to a full recovery. Her hope is to send love to her body, to her friends, to her family, and back to her community.
