With talk of new years resolutions and clean Januarys ever, we asked Carlene to set the record straight on post-Holiday detoxes. She breaks down the pros and cons of popular diets - but really why most of them are just bullsh*t. Don’t worry though, foxies! Carlene has a ton of good tips to help you start your New Year off on a healthier note. From planning your indulgences to using a food journal, we loved all her advice to getting out of that post-Holiday slump without feeling shitty about oursevles.

HEY FOXIES! We have a special TREAT (pun intended) for you guys this week. Nikki Azzara of P.S. Snacks is in the Foxhole to talk ALL about her journey in creating the popular bean-based cookie dough, P.S. Snacks. And, yes, it is HEALTHY!

The 26 year-old CEO has always had a passion for healthy food and even started a blog in college where she shared her home-made recipes that are easy enough to make in a dorm room. After graduation and an “a-ha” moment with her dad, Nikki turned her attention towards her most popular recipe: the edible cookie dough. Now, P.S. Snacks is sold in Whole Foods and is scaling to be sold nationwide!

Nikki shares all the ins and outs of her journey so far - from finding support in mentors and advisors to her struggles with "micro-speed and macro-patience" in building a strong infrastructure. She is super down-to-earth, mega inspiring, and - well she made a healthy cookie dough guys, do we need to say more?! ENJOY!

Episode 42: Running the Wellthy Empire with Shizu Okusa, CEO + Founder of JRINK Juicery

This week, we talk to Shizu Okusa, Founder + CEO of JRINK Juicery, a juicery that has been booming in Washington D.C. since 2014. After an Eat, Pray, Love-type experience, Shizu was inspired by all the different ways to incorporate wellness into your everyday life and JRINK was eventually born. Now, the brand has evolved to cover all your wellness needs with the opening of their sister company, Apothékary. JRINK focuses on reactionary health - think: I am hungover and so need the ‘Clean Me Up’ right now. Apothékary is more about proactive wellness and covers anything from mental health to sexual health. Shizu talks about the journey of the brand, the challenge of finding her niche, and how she’s been able to define her business in an ever-changing health and wellness industry. Plus, Shizu introduces us to the Dosha quiz, a personality test to help you identify what wellness strides are best for you - and we ALL know how we’re suckers for a good personality quiz.
