RAW Conversations Episode 4: Emotional Eating with Yoga Instructor, Holly Skodis

In this podcast, we speak with Holly Skodis, a Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT 500, YACEP). She studied with Dharma Mittra in NYC for 500 and 800-hour certification trainings and studied in Los Angeles, CA before that. 
In 2017, Holly founded Yoga Is Vegan; a project focused on inspiring yogis to go vegan. Each week she interviews and features yogis from around the world on her podcast and blog. Notable guests include Seane Corn, Sharon Gannon, Dharma Mittra, James Aspey, Ana Forrest, Boho Beautiful founders Juliana & Mark Spicoluk and Talia Sutra.

At FoodNerd, we're on a mission to redefine what kids eat today, tomorrow, and in the future. We make a wide range of tasty foods, but underneath all that deliciousness, we’re also setting new standards for nutrient density. We believe that parents should never have to compromise their children's well-being because of busy schedules or a lack of great pre-packaged options. That's why we've dedicated ourselves to creating nibbles that are positively brimming with the goodness of nature’s best ingredients.

Our secret? Through meticulous research and development, we've harnessed a groundbreaking method (we call it Nutrient Lock Cold Processing) that preserves the natural vitality of fruits, vegetables, and sprouted seeds, ensuring that up to 98% of the nutrients remain intact. This also means that we don’t need to add any “filler” ingredients that cancel out the benefits of the best nutrients. We think it’s pretty remarkable science, but the most exciting bit goes beyond the nutritional excellence — our favorite part is that our kids love to eat something that’s so good for their future selves.

Our products are designed to seamlessly fit into the ups and downs of parenthood. Whether it's snack time on the go, or dinner time where you’re like “where did the day go?” our healthy creations are there to support you. At FoodNerd, we believe that the healthy growth and development of our kids should go hand in hand with scientific rigor, tasty delight, and the kind of love for little ones that would make one stop at nothing in the pursuit to revolutionize how food gets made for the next generation.
