“So, we created something called, ‘What’s Up Below.,’ like, ‘What’s Up…Below.’ And the idea is you each take a turn to ask, ‘What’s Up Below?’ And that person talks about their feeling experience about what’s going on in their life.” (12:38) (Mia)

“I would like to brag that I enough emotional responsibility to know that I’m not gonna be emotionally responsible. I am beyond reason, don’t speak to me.” (17:53) (Dr. Mark)

“I started standup a while ago but only got into it seriously a couple of year ago. And, I originally used it as a personal growth tool.” (20:05) (Mia)

“You’re gonna have a hard time convincing me that people won’t like great food if it’s put in front of them.” (29:13) (Dr. Mark)

“One of the things that really is big for people is the role of mental health and food. And, people don’t understand that their mood, their depression, their anxiety, all that can be related – even ADD – can be related to what they’re eating.” (34:44) (Dr. Mark)

“When you create a regenerative farm, which is essentially integrating animals and plant species using animals in a way that actually regenerates through their poo and their pee and they’re running around and chewing on the grass, it actually builds soil. And also, it holds water and it requires less irrigation. So it’s a win-win-win and it produces better quality food.” (44:22)

“So we had to figure out how to build a bridge between us so that he understands that if I need a moment to go and figure it out, it’s not because I’m running or withdrawing. It’s because I want to come back with a really open heart and a clean space so we can really deal and heal with whatever it is.” (56:02)
