PTP276 - Julie Ward Flu Season
In: Podcast0

In this episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk to Julie Ward about how to be winning this cold and flu season. Let’s face it there are two kinds of sick days from work, the ones that you are flat on your face and the ones you pretend to be sick to just take the day off. Wouldn’t it be great if you only need to worry about the latter? We are not suggesting you lie to your work, but with these cold and flu season toolbox ideas you’re sure to skip the red nose, running eyes, flemmy cough this season, and if it does sneak up on you…don’t worry. Julie shares plenty of plant-based and vegan remedies. In fact, I was sipping on one as I wrote this introduction.

So share away, because no one wants to use their sick days for really being sick. And be sure to tag us on Instagram @planttrainers when you do play hookey!

Julie helps others transition to health using a new approach to food and “habit hacks” that help her clients overcome obstacles. As the founder of Fresh Food Alchemy, Julie’s presentations focus on how foods can boost energy, joy and focus. After overcoming her own depression, mood and digestive issues using plant-based wisdom, she brings 25 years of first-hand experience to the table, helping health educators and clients understand that optimal health is possible, and healthy food can taste great! Julie is a plant-based certified ACE health coach with a certificate in Plant-Based Nutrition. She loves creating new ways to make “healthy” tasty, fun and healing!
