It's no secret that stress and environmental factors can make you sick, but how many of us are actively using our food as medicine? Our guest today is Stacey Williams of Kingdom Kitchen Meal Plans, and her mission is to help us heal ourselves through clean, unprocessed eating. In this inspiring conversation Stacey gets honest and vulnerable about her very difficult journey with hyperthyroidism, and how it led her to start a business that advocates for the healing power of food. From a childhood of markets and delicious meals in the Caribbean with her grandma, to following her spot-on instincts at culinary school, she takes us on a vivid journey that includes her discovery of fasting and the huge physical, spiritual and mental benefits that accompany giving your system a reset. You'll hear how, through the path she's walked, Stacey found her unique voice in an otherwise saturated meal-plan market, all while maintaining a healthy work-life balance. Finally, learn how you can get in on her exclusive offerings that work with the natural rhythms of our yearly calendar, all without breaking the bank! This is one fascinating conversation you don't want to miss!
