For ages, we’ve been raised on the belief that an apple a day keeps the doctor away. But if you ask me, it’s time to embrace a delicious alternative: an avocado a day! 

While we’ve been led to believe that all fruits are inherently good for us, the reality is that most can do more harm than good (including apples). But don’t worry – there ARE some incredible fruits out there, and you should feel free to indulge in them. In my latest episode, I share where and WHEN to find these fantastic fruits.

I also reveal the shocking truth about one of America’s favorite snacks: peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. And finally, I share some of my mind-blowing superfood secrets… prepare to be amazed!! 

On this episode you’ll learn:

  • The nut that “defies aging” and helps unlock years of vitality (and why it’s not really a nut after all) (4:20)
  • The astonishing way 94% of you can halt accelerated aging (5:20)
  • My top snack with the ultimate natural melatonin boost (and the extraordinary hidden powers of this hormone beyond its sleep-inducing magic) (11:05)

  • Why adding this popular vegetable to your smoothie is a big NO (31:40)
