Originally published at: https://ketowomanpodcast.com/131/

Keto Crossover episode with the Keto Life Support podcast. 

Join Daisy and Kim for a chat with their Keto Crew about how life is treating them all during the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Who is in the crew? Louise Reynolds, Matt Murray, Jon Slaughter and Terri Lance. Sadly though Terri couldn’t make it due to a schedule clash.

Cohost - Kim Howerton

Kim Howerton struggled with her relationship with food from the time she was 8. As the years went by and her health problems mounted, she felt at the mercy of her body and out of control with her weight. A dedicated seeker of pleasure, she realised that life in a body that was always in pain was no way to live; that a pleasurable life starts by living in a body that feels good.

Enter Keto - a life that has brought together her love of satisfying, delicious foods in a way that makes her actually feel good. She now shares her love of all things Keto by creating recipes, running a Facebook group and her podcast Keto Life Support.

Matt Murray

Matt is 48 and lives in Delaware, which on the East Coast of the US.  He has been married for 20 years and has 3 teenage daughters, a dog and a cat. 

Matt started keto four years ago after being diagnosed with T2 Diabetes and metabolic syndrome.  Through diet and other lifestyle changes Matt was able to return his health and weight to normal.  Matt recently started a skin care company called Nature's JAM with his friend Jon Slaughter that makes all natural, small batch skin care products.

Jon Slaughter

Jon Slaughter lives in a town on the mid-Atlantic seaboard of the United States near the Chesapeake Bay.

Jon stumbled upon the paleo diet while looking online for a recipe for a party.  After following a paleo diet for over a year, he learned about the ketogenic way of eating from a friend who had been diagnosed with T2 diabetes.  A proponent of natural remedies, Jon’s philosophy is “Do what you can first” instead of immediately going down the path of pharmaceuticals.

Jon loves to cook and create delicious recipes that are simple.  He has shared his keto experience and recipes with family, friends, and anyone else who wants more information.  He likes creating simple recipes that anyone can make because he believes living a ketogenic lifestyle will make for a happier planet one person at a time.

Jon’s other hobbies include hiking, kayaking, and homesteading.  He keeps a brood of hens as a source for fresh eggs, landscapes with edible and medicinal plants, makes medicinal tinctures and herbal tea blends, and makes his own personal care products such as face cream and hand salve.  

Jon partnered with his best friend, Matt, to turn his hobby of making natural skin care products into a business.  Together they launched nature’s JAMTM making handmade, all natural skin care products in small batches.  “When someone uses one of our products, I not only want them to love how it makes their skin look and feel, I want the aroma to lift the person up and make them feel good.”
