Episode #38: Rawtopia – A Food-Inspired Spiritual Awakening


Omar Abou-Ismail doesn’t have your typical restaurant owner story. Originally born in Lebanon, Omar and his family traveled and lived throughout West Africa, Ghana, Nigeria, and the Middle East, and eventually settled in Utah. After studying geophysics and mechanical engineering at the University of Utah, he began working with the U.S. Navy as a geophysicist. And then, in 2005, he opened Rawtopia. You could say it was a bit of a leap in career.

Episode 36: Amour Spreads – “And so we said, let’s make jam!”


Amour is the French word for love, and that’s the perfect way to describe how the local jam company Amour Spreads began. It was in 2011 that John and Casee Francis were looking to start a new chapter in life. They felt they were in a rut with their careers and needed a change, or as they say in the episode… they wanted a sign: something that would signal to them what their next life chapter had in store for them.

Episode 33: Sage’s Cafe & Vertical Diner – Vegan and Vegetarian Before it Was Cool.


Vertical Diner and Sage’s Cafe are two leading restaurants in Utah that promote plant-based foods on their menu, with large offerings of exclusively vegetarian and vegan dishes. Today, vegan and vegetarian menu options aren’t uncommon — but 17 years ago, in 1998, it was rare… and the thought of opening a vegetarian-only restaurant in Salt Lake City seemed impossible.

Episode 25: Allgood Provisions – Responsible Snacking


Jake Boyd has always been passionate about organic food and environmental sustainability, but didn’t know the best way to make an impact. After working full-time and moving to Park City to explore the famous Utah ski slopes, his childhood roots came full circle and he ventured into the food world. Having been raised by parents that grew up farming, the passion and drive to start a company from scratch that focused on non-GMO, sustainable, organic snack foods.

Episode 19: Zest Kitchen & Bar – Healthy eating with Casey Staker


Zest Kitchen & Bar is a 3-year old restaurant in downtown Salt Lake City that was launched by Casey Staker in late 2012. It’s an organic, vegetarian, gluten-free restaurant with a fresh juice cocktail bar and they’re right on 275 S 200 W — across from Red Rock, right around the corner from Squatter’s and the convention center.

Zest is trendy, it’s upscale, and their food is lightweight and healthy. And at night, the cocktails flow — all fresh juice and ingredients but with a creative twist. Drinks like a jalepeño margarita, a ginger spice whiskey cocktail with a fresh apple slice, and a summer beet sangria.

Episode 15: The Chocolate Conspiracy – A story of healthy eating & a career in chocolate.


AJ Wentworth attended the world’s largest nutrition school in New York City, after spending years as a health coach and working at a retreat center in rural Arizona where he taught his patients about raw food and holistic, healthy living. To put it simply, AJ doesn’t have the background you’d expect of a chocolatier.
