I first met Alexis Joseph aka The Hummusapien in Columbus, Ohio, about two years ago. One thing I knew we both had in common: We are big-time foodies.

Alexis has turned her passion for amazing, low-cost, healthy recipes into a full-blown career. Her blog, hummusapien.com, has a thriving fan base that only continues to grow.

I wanted to bring Alexis onto the show because of her passion, knowledge about nutrition and the simplicity to her approach: She uses whole foods, easy-to-follow recipes and maintains balance so you don’t become a slave to all the fads and myths that come and go.

Not only has Alexis become a full-time blogger and contributor, but she also created her “baby”—Alchemy Juice Cafe—a brick and mortar business in Columbus, Ohio.

We cover everything from how she came up with the name “Hummusapien” to quick and delicious healthy recipes to the ups and downs of starting different businesses.

Beyond her intelligence and passion, Alexis truly strives to make a huge impact in her community by providing sound advice paired with healthy, affordable, delicious food options. You’ll hear for yourself how much she genuinely cares about making a difference in people’s lives.
