The Joyous Health Podcast is here to bring a dose of joy to your day, maybe a few laughs and some healthy inspiration as we explore food and nutrition, well-being, beauty, family and entrepreneurship. Hosted by the husband and wife team behind the internationally recognized health and wellness brand, Joyous Health — Joy McCarthy, a holistic nutritionist and two-time bestselling author and Walker Jordan, an entrepreneur, photographer and pizza-coffee-car-lover.
Joy McCarthy is a Holistic Nutritionist and founder of Joyous Health, an award-winning blog and healthy lifestyle brand focused on healthy living. She is a two-time bestselling author of Joyous Health and Joyous Detox, and a World Gourmand Cookbook Award recipient. Her third book, The Joyous Cookbook, comes out late 2019.
A trusted nutrition expert, Joy has been featured in hundreds of publications both online — such as Well and Good, CNN and CBC — and in print. She’s also a regular health expert on television including Cityline and CTV’s Your Morning. Joy lives in Toronto with her husband, Walker, and their daughter, Vienna.
Walker is the other half of Joyous Health, a lifelong entrepreneur with a passion for health and wellness that inspired him to pursue a degree in Kinesiology. He embodies an entrepreneurial spirit and loves to take on new challenges, takes pride in being a self-taught photographer and videographer and is always open to learning something new! This spirit led Walker to start numerous businesses, including a boutique training studio in Toronto, where he and Joy inevitably met.
Walker is an avid fan of food (see: Pizza), cars (current ride is a Mini JCW), technology and mechanical watches. His preferred method of communication is through amusing GIFs.
