Nov 18, 2019 01:24:50

Description:

My guest today is one of the smartest, sharpest and sustainable-ist women I am lucky to know. Ashlee Piper is an environmental activist, sustainable living hero, TV expert and the author of Give A Shit: Do Good. Live Better. Save The Planet. What I really like about her is that she brings an incredibly admirable level of intelligence to the table, she has all the stats and research to back up her points, she does it all with a great sense of humor. AND she’s not preachy about it. You likely won’t find a more, down to *earth* EARTH lady than this one. Ashlee’s out to educate, share her story and her knowledge but sans judgement which is so refreshing when it comes to veganism and environmentalism. So get out your recycled notebook, friend, because this chat is jam packed with notes to take to change yo’ lifestyle to help mama nature. 

 

Press Play to Hear: 

How to re-home the stuff you no longer want Why even a micro approach can have macro effects on the environment Why eating meat is one of the worst things you can do for the environment You don’t have to be perfect: how living sustainably is more forgiving than you think How to transform an apathetic attitude and get motivated to protect the earth Classic American habits that need to change now Being as intentional with your stuff as you are with your food Plus tons of hilariousness with Ashlee Piper

166. Joy. Want More? Listen Now! with Shannon Kaiser

Nov 11, 2019 01:00:11

Description:

This is Shannon Kaiser’s third visit to my podcast, and for good reason: she’s my life/business coach and I keep getting free sessions out of interviewing her! Joking...Shannon’s threepeat is because she’s my go-to source for sage life advice without bells and whistles or woo-woo confusion. And because she keeps writing wonderful books worth talking about. 

 

In this ‘sode, Shannon and I chat about achieving inner peace and living joyfully in a TRUE way, not just in a way that satisfies your ego or makes those around you think you’re the bees knees. When you scrap all the external factors, ditch the shoulds, and have an honest heart-to-freaking-heart with yourself, you’re left with a clear path towards what will actually fulfill you. And then, Shannon urges, we should GO DO THAT THING! 

 

Food isn’t a real topic of discussion in this one, but since I believe the whole point of partying with plants is so we have the energy to live more joyfully, think about this chat as like, the masterclass in living epically once your planty diet gives you the energy, stamina, confidence and mental clarity to do so. 

 

>> PS. Here’s Shannon’s episode talking about self love & here’s one about trusting your gut!

165. Farm-to-Home: Why the Organic Plant Party Shouldn’t Stop at Your Dinner Table! With Marci Zaroff

Nov 4, 2019 01:15:21

Description:

Damn did Marci Zaroff ever blow my mind! I probably mentioned at least three times in utter amazement how cool she is because this OG leader in wellness and organics is... SO FREAKING COOL! To start, she basically has 100 companies. She was one of the peeps plant partying it up in the early 1990s when no one else was. Ain’t no party like a plant party of 1?  Marci coined the term “Eco fashion” developed the standard for organic textiles in the U.S., published books, and is now out with her new organic cotton and environmentally-friendly homeware line Farm to Home. (Because why should straight-from-the-farm plants only bless our dinner plates?) 

 

We spoke a lot about stuff I knew little about: organic cotton, why it’s important and how the fast fashion industry is ruining our homes, our bods and the environment. I mean, in case you, like me, hadn’t fully *cotton* just yet, the cotton used to make everything from our favorite white sheets, to the blankets we cuddle up in, to our favorite pair of jeans and worn-in tee are often produced with the use of thousands of chemicals that damage us and damage the air and water. Honestly, as a responsible citizen and new homeowner, I really want zero part in that and so I’m on the road to outfitting myself and my new home sweet home with sustainable, sweet sustainable textiles like Marci explains all about right now….


Press play to hear: 

A crazy walk down memory lane to the wellness and organic community in the early 90s Why food is a personal choice you shouldn’t judge! How the wellness community in 2019 overlooks the importance of textiles Why non-organic cotton could be damaging your skin and health The reasons why fast fashion is killing our planet The three things to watch for when shopping for environmentally-friendly homeware and clothing Crazy tales from the woman who dubbed the term “eco-fashion.” Why extend the farm-to-table movement to farm-to-home  And more!

164. How to Be More Grounded and Goddessy. Starring Crystals, Essential Oils, ACV + Woo Galore! with Amy Leigh Mercree

Oct 25, 2019 01:16:46

Description:

Amy Leigh Mercree is probably one of the sweetest, most sensitive gals I’ve ever had on the show. This medical intuitive (yes, in this episode she explains what the heck this is) pretty much makes the rest of us look like demons. I mean, she doesn’t have plants in her home because she knows they’d prefer to live outside and she’s not one who will buy a crystal and stash it away in a drawer to be ignored. The author of, oh, about a million books, Amy strives to help other people achieve inner peace and health through spirituality. If you’re looking to bring out your spiritual side and get in touch with the inner goddess that DOES exist within you, this chat is up your crystal-lined alley.

 

Press play to hear: 

Essential oils that *literally* spark joy The low-down on how to use crystals  Which crystals to buy and where in your home to put them  Why apple cider vinegar is the best thing you can do for your health What is a medical intuitive anyway? A mantra to keep you safe, grounded and anxiety-free Natural plant remedies for mood and PMS Tips that might show you’re psychically sensitive Most common blockades to achieving inner peace  How to stay your healthiest, happiest and most grounded

163. Functional Mushrooms: Why They’re the Shiitake ;) with herbalist Danielle Ryan Brioda

Oct 18, 2019 01:01:33

Description:

In case you missed the memo, I’m a bit of a mushroom junkie. (I mean, I drink so much Four Sigmatic Mushrooms blends I could turn into a mushroom…omg yes, I just came up with my Halloween costume!) Anyway, given my deep and undying love for the functional fungi, it felt ultra organic to bring shroom-extraordinaire Danielle Ryan Broida onto my show. 

 

Danielle is hella connected with nature in ways I’m deeply inspired by: she’s a raw food chef, herbalist, mycologist, holistic nutritionist and an avid gardener. Arguably, she’s more of a plant-partier than me. In this convo she even said that she became a vegetarian at age eight, grows as much of her own food as possible, and of all the guests I’ve had on the show, she has probably come up with the most interesting ways of consuming plants. (Hence why I call her a mad scientist.) After hearing from Danielle, I bet your button mushrooms that you’ll be adding all these Harry Potter sounding shroomy spells to your diet. 

 

Press play to hear: 

A conversation about connecting to food and nature The difference between functional mushrooms and your regular grocery store portobellos  The best plants to add to your garden  Herbs to sneak into your diet to have you feeling amazing Your shroom myths busted Ways to eat mushrooms from the expert who eats five pounds a week How to make your own herbal tincture  Crazy stories on wellness from an international traveller

162. Anxiety and Me! 13 Healthy Things I Do To Help Calm My Stormy Mind

Oct 11, 2019 30:16

Description:

In honor of it being World Mental Health Day (well that was yesterday so I guess let’s consider this the afterparty) I’m re-airing this true talk about how I personally strive to combat and calm my anxiety -- which I do as routinely as I eat dinner. 

 

I used to live with an insurmountable amount of anxiety. Anxiety attacks were a painful and routine part of my life; it was like my anxiety was my Uber drive and I was just a lost, helpless passenger in the back seat! Until enough was enough and I quit them. In this episode, I walk you through the 13 out-of-the-box, drug-free things I’ve done to effectively kick my anxiety to the curb (and keep it there like a loser). If you struggle with anxiety, you cannot afford to skip this episode! (Sorry, not trying to make you anxious about it, but seriously. Listen up. And remember: everybody’s story with mental health is different. This is mine.)

161. How to Be More Feng Shui-y. Ken Lauher Gets Real About How to Do It & Why It Works!

Oct 4, 2019 01:08:11

Description:

My guest today is like Bruce springsteen. (A household name.) (of Feng Shui.) (So even cooler than Bruce, am I right?) Well, even more than helping his folks reorganize their homes, Ken Lauher’s bread and butter and pure passion is leading his clients into becoming their best selves by way of bettering their spaces. In this chat he bettered my life just by instilling in it that a cluttered house leads to a cluttered mind -- and since we’ve hung up the call I’ve been a born again declutterer. The proof is in his pudding, and Ken’s pudding is helping entrepreneurs, executives and high achievers across the globe to gain clarity, take action and get results in their personal and professional life. Many of his clients actually call him “The Clarifier” thanks to his unique ability to help them simplify and solve their most pressing issues. I’ll go ahead and call him “cool” for his special way of making a kinda weird thing like feng shui be cool, understandable and actually practical. But how about we all stop calling him things and roll the interview so you can come to your own conclusions! 

 

Press play to hear:

Why Feng Shui isn’t at all what you think it is Why a cluttered house and a cluttered mind go hand-in-hand and what you can do about it Tips for kitchen organization… from the pro How one life-changing moment led this home styling master to change his life The five biggest things that Ken Lauher’s clients actually want  How organizing your home leads to transformations and breakthroughs that’ll get your mojo back Why the bagua is… not that great Why beating yourself up about clutter and cleaning is actually harming your soul You have a choice!! Getting your life back on track means taking responsibility

160. “Mental Health is Physical Health” (and Dr. Will Cole Explains Inflammation Better than Anyone Else, Ever.)

Sep 27, 2019 01:08:53

Description:

You know how they say: health is wealth? Well, as my phenomenal functional medicine practitioner friend Dr. Will Cole says in this chat: you don’t have to be wealthy to be healthy. 

 

Dr. Cole, or Will, is doc who relies zilch on prescriptions on mucho on natural fixes. He’s obsessed with finding the roots of health problems and honestly, in this chat I became obsessed with finding out his answers to every single thing that came to my mind. It turns out, this brilliant man is not only a healer, but also a quote generation machine, and he was dropping some serious poetic responses. Something he said that really stuck with me was: “Just because it’s common, doesn’t mean it’s normal.” Out of context, that could apply to basically anything (headphones getting tangled the minute they enter a purse, my dog humping his bed when he’s mad at us, me crying when I watch Monica and Chandler get engaged even though I’ve seen that episode upwards of 39 times…) but in the context of our conversation, he was saying that so many folks struggle with so many “common” health issues today, but that shouldn’t mean that accept them as “normal” and live a life less good.

 

This chat is also just what the doctor ordered because finally, FINALLY, hooha, I had an expert on the show who really broke down inflammation. You know, that word you keep hearing but don’t really, truly, honestly, understand? Well with Will, whose new book The Inflammation Spectrum is about to be your new go-to health manual, we talk about what inflammation is, what causes it, how it wrecks havoc in your body, and how to stop it!  

 

Press play to hear: 

What’s a functional health practitioner and why might you need one? What causes inflammation? Why you might want to start an elimination diet What inflammation actually is and why too much can be bad news Why what you eat could be causing your depression and anxiety It’s not a medication deficiency: how what you do and don’t put in your body causes your symptoms Why autoimmune conditions and inflammation often go hand in hand How many years of lifestyle habits it takes before an illness manifests You don’t have to be wealthy to be healthy: FREE tips to get you feeling better Common foods that could cause inflammation Why stress is just junk food for the soul and is probably making you sick

159. Know Thyself, Respect Thy Needs. Nitika Chopra on How to Find Your Unique Path to Wellness & Thrive with a Chronic Illness

Sep 13, 2019 01:05:16

Description:

My guest today has gone through a long and winding and challenging journey with chronic illness and autoimmune disease. The way she is now though — charmingly hilarious and fantastically bubbly — is kind of a great case-in-point example of one of her biggest teachings: you’re more than your illness. Much, much more. Nitika Chopra is the strong and loving voice behind the podcast The Point Of Pain, which is a place where others with chronic illness in their past share their stories. Surprisingly, there’s a lot of laughter on her show — as there was in this one. (She’s called her conference for those with ongoing illnesses “Chronicon” so you know she’s got a fan of the humor thing…) Personally, I’ve never had a guest pointedly say they’re not into trees, grass and alllll things nature, but by revealing her opposition to the great outdoors Nitika, a thriving vibrant walking taking billboard of health proved her thesis: that knowing yourself well enough to know your needs is the secret to wellness. Speaking of billboards we also talk about what it was like to be a swimsuit model for a hot sec! And vision boards! That’s kind of like a dream billboard for your bedroom, right? Anyway, here’s Nitika..

158. Now You’ll Know Your CBD’s…with Plant People founder Gabe Kennedy

Sep 6, 2019 57:18

Description:

Gabe Kennedy is as cool as a… bottle of CBD oil. He’s also a plant-chef, nature guy, remarkable analogy creator, and the brains and soul behind Plant People, a company that’s spreading the word about the power plants can have on the wellness of not just individuals, but a whole society. Sure, Plant People is one of the billion brands boasting the brilliance of CBD these days but his mission his to not just be a CBD company - rather, to showcase using herbs and other plants can make us better. And Gabe is not your average “ohhh lemme capitalize on this CBD craze” kinda guy either. He’s the kind of guy who saw through a back fracture injury he got while skiing and used the experience to recognize the value of herbs and hemp. Since then, he has been spreading the word while using part of his profits to plant trees in the U.S. His cause is now to mend people, mend the earth and connect with both. They say when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. In Gabe’s case, make balms, drops and lotions, heal others’ woes and replant whole forests while you’re at it!  

 

Press reved up to hear:

What CBD actually does and why it’s so great The difference between marijuana and hemp and CBD and THC The best analogies ever spoken by a wellness guru ;-) Why the health industry needs to think about overall environmental and societal wellness How to cook to enhance CBD’s natural qualities Why CBD is the answer for anxiety, inflammation, pain and stress How Gabe Kennedy’s back fracture led to his discovery of the values of herbalism and cannabis How Plant People is growing the forest and doing their bit for the planet Why CBD oils should become a practice… just like your yoga or morning meditation And more!

156. How to Live Well, in a Nutshell! with Nikole Goncalves (aka Health Nut Nutrition)

Aug 23, 2019 01:10:07

Description:

Nikole Goncalves is the gal behind the beloved and mega popular YouTube channel (which has over 560K subscribers and over 39 Million views) Health Nut Nutrition, and in this here episode, she gave me the BEYOND *nutshell* scoop on all things food, nutrition, and sustainable, approachable wellness. And Trader Joes. We recorded this chat on national avocado day and believe me, this convo was all I could have *avo* wanted. (OK, sorry for the *guacward* pun...) What I love about this chatty Canadian (yes, she did say sorry and yes, I did make fun of her accent) is that she had such a down-to-earth approach to healthy eating and happy living. Her relationship with food has never been a rocky one and so her words are confident and refreshing to hear. We talk about how she found her calling, what it’s been like running her vlog from the bottom now she here, her new brand for plant loving pups, meditation, smoothie recipes, body shaming, and her upcoming book debut.

155. Gettin’ Spicy with Dr. Josh Axe! Why Herbs Are The Unsung Heroes of Your Plant Party (and how to do Keto with plants)

Aug 16, 2019 58:11

Description:

Dr. Josh Axe [https://draxe.com/] is that dude (and doctor) who seems to have it all figured out. He’s a certified doctor of natural medicine, a doctor of chiropractic and a clinical nutritionist with a passion for helping people get healthy by empowering them to use nutrition to fuel their health. Men’s Health calls him a guru of all things ayurvedic medicine and ancient Chinese medicine, and when I feel like I need to find the culprits of anything that ails me or get the trusted and research backed lowdown on the latest popular plant or wellness trend, I visit his website A BUNCH. As do 17 million other people…a month. I love getting to sit down with a doc who can spill smart stuff on any topic I ask about. In this chat Dr. Axe dished out some wisdom on everything from deplorable keto diet mistakes (it’s NOT about butter fried cheese with bacon, thank you very much) to sneaky and yummy ways to up your herbs and spice intake (if you’re not already on the turmeric band wagon, we’ll getchu there!) and he even takes us a little into woo-ville when he talks about how poor emotional health can lead to major organ health! So let’s roll the tape roll because the doctor will get off his massively popular Instagram account and see..us..now!

 

Press Play to hear:

A heartfelt story on how Dr. Josh Axe fell in love with natural medicine Tips to encourage your loved one to adopt (at least partially) some traditional medicine practices Why the modern-day western medicine doesn’t have all the answers How to do Keto the right way AND for the right length of time  Why herbs and spices are the unsung heroes of your plant party Why your emotional health is so crucial for your physical health  How to understand your element and what that means for your body Why personalized eating makes way more sense than one-diet-fits-all  And tons more!

154. Your Healthiest Relationship with Booze Starts Here! With hypnotherapist, Georgia Foster

Aug 9, 2019 54:40

Description:

My guest today hits the nail right on the head when she says “we live in a drinking world.” Georgia Foster is a hypnotherapist originally from Australia, who has spent many years living in London and as such, she knows a thing or two about the prevalence of drinking cultures. Georgia’s aim in her work is to teach people how to establish healthy relationships with booze and to learn how to drink less rather than have to break up with that glass of vino forever. In this chat that has truly stuck with me at all of my drinking events since, we dive into how our anxiety and specifically, our inner critics, are the biggest enablers of over-drinking. If you know your inner critic is ruining (or running!) your life, don’t freak out! Georgia had more than a few practical tips to retrain your brain and rely on that happy hour drink a little less. What I liked most about this conversation is that Georgia is by no means the booze police and that her cool-as-a-cucumber approach is ACTUALLY realistic because no, she’ll never tell you not to enjoy a good party, she’s just helping us all have happier inner dialogue so our critics don’t run rogue.  

 

Press play to hear: 

 

The difference between an alcoholic and someone who is trying to drink less The drinking personalities: perfectionists versus people pleasers Why your inner critic is encouraging you to pop bottles and pour that extra glass Why switching up your drink of choice is likely to turn you into a hot mess Why weddings can cause pressure to drink too much and what to do about it How getting anxiety in check directly relates to better habits around drinking  How drinking allows us to spend time without our inner critics and can therefore lead to overdoing it What your tipsy self is trying to communicate with you  Techniques to stop anxiety and prepare for healthy nights out with alcohol And more!

153. The Wow and Why of Weaving Wellness with Work! with Abbi Miller

Aug 2, 2019 01:03:17

Description:

My guest today is a Holistic Nutrition-turned-Business Coach and yoga teacher-turned-productivity preacher who’s obsessed with showing ladies how to weave wellness with work, dodge burnout, and get the good shit done. Abbi Miller’s roots are in yoga but somewhere along the way through her table top poses, cobras and proud warriors, she realized that to be the proudest warrior of all, you have to be able to flow through your work day by balancing your overall wellness. While running her holistic nutrition + yoga biz for 11 years, she’s well versed in the self-employment juggle of feeling exhausted, hangry and face-palming every time you look at your to-do list. That’s why, through private coaching and mentoring, public speaking, transformational events and luxury yoga retreats, Abbi help ladies optimize their life so their health and work flourish like a well-watered-chia-pet. Her combo of wellness with biznass is nothing short of, well, magic. Which is a word she uses a lot. So much so that I would be highly supportive of you turning Abbi’s use of “magic” in this chat into a kombucha drinking game.

152. THE ONE ABOUT THE GREATNESS OF THE GREAT OUTDOORS! Sanni McCandless talks adventuring with Alex Honnold, eating plants in a van, and building a life of meaning

Jul 26, 2019 01:17:32

Description:

Today’s guest calls herself a life & transition coach for the outdoor-minded, and I call her nature’s walking billboard. (Meaning, she sells the effects of nature, hard.) You might’ve met Sanni McCandless in the Oscar-Winning documentary film Free Solo, which captured the emotional story of professional rock climber Alex Honnold attempting to conquer the first free solo (a look ma, no hands type of climb) of a famous 900-metre vertical rock face called El Capitan's at Yosemite National Park. While it’s impossible to not be on the edge of your seat while Alex is on the edge of a cliff with just his fingertips and no safety net, when I watched the film, I found myself even more locked into Sanni, his girlfriend. When the film ended and I was able to stop clenching every muscle in my body, I searched for Sanni on the interwebs and was not surprised to find that she’s a passionate entrepreneur compassionately driven to helping people create more tailored, intentional lifestyles. This deep dive with Sanni definitely inspired me to get outside more. She crushed this interview with insight on taking time off work to travel, revamping our routines to create more meaning, eating more plants, appreciating the outdoors, and designing our lives to make the most out of them. For an inspirational interview that’ll inspire you to get up for sunrise, stargaze at night, or bravely hop on a bike more, hit play. 

 

Press play to explore:

 

How eatin’ them plants can aid in recovery for athletes of all types How to eat healthy while living that van life, yo Is your life “just fine” or “effing amazing”? How to make it the latter  Learn to manage stress and anxiety if your partner does a high-risk job or activity  A behind the scenes chat about the magnificent film “Free Solo” How to start making small, approachable changes today to change your life for the better  Ride your bike to work! Plus other easy, real-life ways to spend more time outdoors  And tons more

151. An Inspiralizing Trick for Summertime Plant-Partying! With Ali Maffucci of Inspiralized

Jul 19, 2019 46:59

Description:

Hey there! I’m hard at work over here on some really exciting upcoming things so I’ve chosen to re-air the very first ever interview I did on this here podcast 3 years ago woohoo. This is the prefect chat to resurface because it’ll serve as a powerful reminder of how and why to use your spiralizer -- my top summer kitchen tool (outside of my blender of course). It’ll also be a little ridiculous to hear my first ever interview when I was just a wee podcast hosting baby - I really should bring more games into my interviews nowadays, that was so fun. Anyway, here’s my chat with Ali Maffuci, the queen of turning plants into noodles. She’s the founder of the mega-brand Inspiralized, creator of the Inspiralizer tool (which I use to make my veggie noodles), the author of three bestselling cookbooks, the maker of two children and the inventor of the spiralized sweet potato BUN. This is quite the inspiralizing chat:

 

In this super INSPIRALIZING show, you’ll learn:

 

Exactly how to spiralize 13 different fruits and veggies from A-Z (literally from Apple to Zucchini) Mind-blowing ways Ali adds spiralized plants to baked goods, desserts, and even cocktails  The inspiring story behind Inspiralized and how Ali keeps creativity swirling around in her head How spiralizing has helped Ali shed 30 lbs. The birth story of the SWEET POTATO BUN (yes BUN - like a burger BUN. Made of sweet potato noodles!) The secrets to not crying over onions and slicing a pepper in 1 shot And so much more!

150. If You Can’t Change ‘Em; Give ‘Em Bites. <3 Remembering My MIL Two Years Later

Jul 12, 2019 41:00

Description:

This week marks the two year anniversary of my mother in law’s passing, and in her loving memory I’m re-airing this story about how my magical engagement overlapped with her tragic death, and how that taught me to live the crap out of my days and share my non-crap food even more. There’s nothing really funny about this episode, it’s more like a chapter from a Nicholas Sparks book with a dash of a Tony Robbins seminar and a sprinkle of the trailer of the movie Serendipity. That made absolutely no sense but really, life doesn’t make much sense, and that’s actually what this episode is about. How good people die. How even sick people stubbornly stick to their ways. How ‘waiting till you’re ready’ is both mature and wise but also foolish and wrong. Here’s my [hopefully inspiring] story of how I got engaged while cancer stole the life of my fiancé’s mother.

149. SPF for the W-I-N: The Summer Skin ‘Sode! with a Heyday Esthetician

Jul 5, 2019 01:05:14

Description:

Today’s guest comes from one of my favorite non-food spots in NYC: Hey Day, an amazing facial shop! I popped my facial cherry at Hey Day over a year ago and not to be dramatic, but it’s been transformative. I had no idea how much I’d enjoy being scrubbed and polished and getting the crap literally squeezed out of my pores, and I never could have predicted how much I’d learn about taking care of my skin. If you’ve never been to Hey Day, or gotten a facial, you should wash that fact away ASAP! But until then, enjoy this surprisingly delightful and terrifically informative chat with Jeni Sykes, the incredibly well-spoken co-founder and head of skincare at Hey Day and definitely get ready for some of the most tangible info that’s ever popped out of an episode.

 

You’ll learn:

 

Some signs your skin might want a facial. What really IS a facial (and what it’s not). Everything you need to know about SPF. The shocking reason your skin is extra oily in the summer. Really how to exfoliate. And loads much more!

148. Got Dreams? This Story’s For You! (Here’s the honest hustle, heartbreak and hell yeah behind signing my book deal)

Jun 28, 2019 01:09:43

Description:

The truthful tale of my book deal was anything but a straight, direct, easy line. It involved a lot of both woohoo AND boohoo, plus a surprising amount of woowoo …. all of which I dive into in this story. So if you press play on this episode thinking you’ll snag a copy and paste formula for getting your own book deal, this probs isn’t the perfect episode for you, but if you’re open to hearing how achieving great dreams is completely possible with more hustle, heartbreak and some spiritual shiz sprinkled in, this episode might just do it for ya.

147. The Science of Burnout & The Art of … Preventing Burnout! with author Emily Nagoski

Jun 21, 2019 01:14:29

Description:

My guest today is like that lovably fiery, charmingly nerdy and way-smarter-than-you best friend we all wish we had. With her first bestselling book, Come As You Are, Emily Nagoski, a health educator with a PHD changed the conversation around sexuality for women of all orientations and now Emily has a bone to pick (a big bone to pick!) with another hot-button topic: burn out.

 

Leave it to Emily to get to the science behind the biggest health issues affecting women today and articulate the cause and solution waaaaaaay better than anyone ever has before. What’s especially notable about this new book is that she has a personal connection: after ignoring symptoms of burnout and stress, her twin sis Amelia got so worn down that her appendix actually burst. This not only stressed to Emily how mega-serious stress can be, but it also led Emily to bring her expert-from-personal-experience sister in to co-write the book with her.

 

In this episode, we got oh so real about oh so many things that’ll impact how you live your day-to-day life henceforth. Man, I WOULD NOT ever want to get into an argument with this gal because she has the facts to back up literally everything she says. I hope you love this one as much as I did!

146. TRUST YO’ HUNGER! And F*CK Your Diet! with Caroline Dooner, author and creator of The F*ck it Diet

Jun 14, 2019 01:16:14

Description:

If Caroline Dooner’s name rings a bell, it’s probably because you’re heard of her book, or her massive movement called the “The F*ck It Diet.” Yes, she may have given me more than one anxiety attack as I listened to her long and yo-yoing journey with dieting, but the way she now shits on the inherent flaws of dieting and diet culture (which she backs with so much sound science thank you very very much Caroline) is SO relatable to SO many people. As a fellow past-life comedian, Caroline’s humor, coupled with her compassion, (with again, lots of research) allows her to fearlessly call out all the BS and misinformation that makes us make eating so hard for ourselves, so be prepared to wage no more wars with your grub after you listen. Matcha latte cheers to making “the f*ck it diet” the last diet you ever try!

 

Yay! Press Play to hear:

How Caroline Dooner, author of The F*ck It Diet, fixed her tainted relationship with food Your hunger is there for a reason and why you need to stop ignoring it Why diets make peeps even more food obsessed The biggest sign that you’re underfeeding yourself No, disordered eaters are NOT only those who are incredibly thin… and other myths busted! What mind-blowing stuff the Minnesota Starvation Experiment of the 1940s has taught us about restricting calories and dieting And tons more!

Her husband, Cody Asche, also plays baseball professionally in the MLB so I got to pick her brain on how these guys manage to eat healthy when they’re always on the road traveling to different dugouts and stuff! Since I’ve dramatically upped my own athleticism in the past couple of years, I may have rapid-fired every question about planty sports nutrition I’ve ever had and Angie demystified it all - from the deal with iron, glutamine, protein and even how to travel with bananas which I still call BS on but whateverrrr…

142. How to Be Happy & Confident in a Looks-Obsessed World (The Beauty Myth-Busting Episode!) with Anuschka Rees

May 17, 2019 01:04:15

Description:

Trust me when I say that if there’s a voice that can cut through all the BS around beauty standards and body image pressure, oh my, it’s today’s guest. Anuschka Rees whole motive with her hot off the press book, Beyond Beautiful is to help women stop obsessing so much over appearance, stop attributing their self-worth to their looks and start to recognize that the value of beauty has been INFLATED to the max in our society. Chatting with this girl literally settled my stomach (I’m not exaggerating!). In a pistachio nutshell, instead of worrying about if you’re beautiful and learning to see beauty in your “flaws”, she wants you to take beauty out of the equation altogether! Just knock it on out.

 

This chat literally schooled me - I learned some history, became more media literate and actually have started to have so much more pride in the fact that, honestly, I kind of naturally don’t give two hoots what I look like and I kind of always thought that was so lazy or unladylike but now I realize it’s actually awesome that I prioritize living over looking. And I wish that for you too. However this episode touches you, touch it, it will.

 

Get happy to hear:

The difference between body positivity and body neutrality How to tackle beauty myths on a daily basis Why the era of “body positivity” and “empowerment” hasn’t resulted in more confident women Why regular people are editing their photos and how to become less obsessed with their Insta feeds How the societal value of beauty is affecting the mental health of women A practical conversation about banishing appearance-related rules How advertisers are using the body positivity movement in their favor How to stop obsessing about whether your appearance is enough How to stop equating self-worth to your appearance And more!

May 10, 2019 01:07:32

Description:

My guest today is a girl after my own heart, a fellow champion of flicking off the balance police and saying IMA DO THINGS MY WAY! Nealy Fischer, founder of the Flexible Chef and author of Food You Want: For the Life You Crave, gives some killer tips on how to bend without breaking and not just in an uncomfortable yoga way, but in an eating way, too. Nealy’s fascination with flexibility came out of necessity - she’s a mother of four, living a life that often takes her on planes, trains and automobiles around the WORLD. Still, she manages to practice what she preaches, which is eating awesome, fresh and planty things so you feel awesome, energized and confident. This was a great talk. Take notes because this bendy lady’s got some top-notch advice (minus the whole sardines in the airport thing…gross, Nealy…)

 

Press play to hear:

How to abandon diet mentality and embrace flexibility in your food relationship How to bend without breaking in your kitchen, at your dinner table and in your workout Tips for food prep that’ll have you looking and feeling awesome Sneaky tips for great kids’ after-school snacks How to travel without ditching your health How to healthify any recipe How to use the zig-zag method to get on track with proper life “balance” What’s a flexible chef exactly and how to become one Why you actually shouldn’t fly with canned sardines… And more!

140. What’s The Best Way to Enjoy Grapes? A Cork Dork Spills All Her Notes! with Bianca Bosker

May 3, 2019 01:11:23

Description:

Hey! I’m in Italy right now guzzling allll the wine and pretending to like the tannen's and terroirs and hints of tobacco in it so I figured now’s as bene as time as ever to re-air this grape chat all about wine! So today’s guest used to just be a regular person. Or a civilian, as she calls it. Not too long ago Bianca Bosker was just a run of the mill boxed wine drinker, not giving any thought or sniffs to wine that she’d sip, until one day she discovered something that forever changed the way she viewed fermented grapes: she stumbled upon the secret world of sommeliers and became, well, obsessed. I’m not going to spoil the rest of the story - I’ll let Bianca tell you her tale but if you’ve been curious about how to feel more comfortable ordering or buying wine, which wines pair perfectly for plant-y dishes and whether wine really has any redeeming health qualities, I think Bianca, the New York Times bestselling author of CORK DORK is the perfect person to satiate your thirst for vino knowledge.

 

Get buzzed to hear:

 

- The two senses we've forgotten about and how to develop them!

- The poetry (and bullshit) of tasting notes.

- A peek into the secret world of sommeliers (it includes dance classes, obvs).

- The difference between natural, organic, and biodynamic wine.

- Does wine have any redeeming health qualities?

- Why you shouldn’t feel bad buying wine based on a cute label!

- Bianca’s go-to wines for plant-y dishes.

- How to send a wine back the PC way.

- And lots more!

139. Can Healthy Cooking Be a Metaphor for Life? with A Couple Cooks

Apr 26, 2019 01:13:32

Description:

Hey! I’m in Italy right now ringing in my 30th birthday by eating all the pizza and allll the pasta, so I wanted to re-air this charming chat with a couple whose love affair with cooking healthy food was sparked by a love affair with Italy! So Sonja and Alex Overhiser, known on the interwebs as A Couple Cooks, are a writer and photographer duo behind the award-nominated food blog, A Couple Cooks, and the co-authors of the inspiring (to me as a soon to be also author) cookbook, Pretty Simple Cooking, which was named one of the “best vegetarian cookbooks” by Epicurious. And which lives on the SPECIAL FAVORITE COOKBOOKS section of my cookbook library, I’d like to add. Their plant-forward approach to eating and their joy-filled approach to cooking, mixed with their humble approach to love is what makes this couple pretty simply awesome. It was tricky tricky business scheduling this interview with BOTH Sonja and Alex but I just couldn’t settle one half of the couple cooks and I’m so thrilled I get to share both of them with you today!

 

Get excited to hear:

- What inspired A Couple Cooks to actually cook and the first meal they EVER made

- The journey from never cooking to running a successful food blog and writing a cookbook

- How to embrace failure in the kitchen and life lessons learned from cooking

- How to not want to use your knives on your loved ones when cooking together

- What to do if meal prep is totally not your thing

- How not to be afraid of going to the grocery store

- The simple thing that will make you love your veggies, even Brussels sprouts

- What they wish they would have registered for to stock their kitchen as newlyweds

- The importance of not rushing through cooking and eating

- What they think they're bad at making

- And lots more!

137. Why Being Healthier Together is Healthier Than Being Healthier Alone (plus: a permission slip to dessert daily) with Liz Moody

Apr 12, 2019 01:31:57

Description:

I said it at the end of this chat but I’ll say it at the front, too: this was one of my favorite episodes yet! Liz Moody, wellness writer and editor extraordinaire for mindbodygreen, goop, Vogue and Glamour basically debunked, demystified and defused the whole wellness trend game in about one hour.

 

Liz’s brand spanking new beautiful book, Healthier Together, is on shelves as of this month and it’s actually not a cookbook for couples. Liz’s whole M.O. is to is that building community and spending QT with people is a huge wellness hack. After studying all the meditation, green smoothies, gluten-free paleo granolas and infrared saunas, Liz realized that positive relationships are an essential part of the health equation. In this chat, she makes a great argument for being healthier together, not unhealthy alone… and she grants us permission to hate salads AND eat dessert every day but I’ll just let you get to all that yo’self.

 

Press Play to hear:

 

How community deficiency is the most overlooked wellness downer Why you can (and maybe should) eat dessert every day What the heck is wellness actually? Some wise words on body acceptance How to get over your social media already Why to look at wellness as nothing more than a tool Surprise! You’re not the only one who hates salad And tons more

135. Once Upon a Food Story: How You + Food Can Live Happily Ever After! with Elise Museles

Mar 29, 2019 01:14:30

Description:

Chances are you’ve probs thought about your relationship with food once twice or thirty nine hundredithe times. Maybe it’s a good relationship, a bad one or just one in need of a little TLC. If someone asked you “so uh, what’s your food story?” would you even know where to start? What genre would it be? Is it an empowering memoir? An anxiety-inducing thriller? Downright horror? Is it all just fiction?

 

My guest today is all about food stories. Elise Museles believes that Your food story impacts everything from how you eat, when you eat, how you feel about your body, the choices you make around food, anxieties you may have around cooking or eating… the list goes on and on and on and ON! Basically, our food stories are the CONTEXT that explains why we eat the way we do. As Elise, a certified eating psychology and nutrition expert explains: our food stories, unlike the Harry Potter stories, are ALWAYS a work in progress.

Though Carly Stein is, and Carly Stein is also the founder of Beekeeper’s Naturals, a line of busy bee-powered wellness products that she can swear on her tonsils will uplevel your life. Carly left her career as an analyst at Goldman Sachs a couple years ago when she got stung by passion and stuck on a mission to bring the healing powers of the hive to regular people like you and me who don’t even know what a hive really is but like to take care of our health!

133. A Crash Course in Feeling Less Cray Cray Around Food! with Isabel Foxen Duke

Mar 8, 2019 58:23

Description:

Today’s guest is a badass and a half. Not sure what that means, but I guess I said it because what she does for a living is badass, and she herself is a badass, totaling to one and a half parts of badass. Or I guess that’s really two parts badass. I’m really not great at math. By day, Isabel Foxen Duke helps women stop feeling crazy around food - specifically women who are trapped in “diet land.” And by night, she practices what she preaches, which is intuitive eating, health at every size and filtering her social media to maintain a positive body image. She also eats a lot of Burmese food, which, in case you dunno, means grub from various regions of Myanmar. (MY_ANN-MARR). I could’ve talked with Isabel for hours and hours, which is why this episode is especially long, because as you’ll hear, I needed my own crash course in diet culture with a side of fat phobia 101. I am so jazzed up about the work Isabel does and I love more than anything her tell-it-to-em-straight, no BS tude, dude! K now put on your suspenders and nudge those nerdy glasses up your nose because school is in session!

 

Get psyched to hear:

 

How being put on a diet at age THREE affected Isabel’s relationship to food from prettttty much the very start of her life. What the deal is with “health at every size” and how it could legit change your life and your relationship with your body. Isabel’s crystal clear and helpful definition of “binge eating” which made my use of the word seem rather ridiculous. How to get started with intuitive eating! Fat phobia 101. The verrrrry finite difference between dieting and “making healthy choices.” Some practice ways you can work to improve yo’ body image. And LOADS more!

132. What if Gentle Was Cooler than Perfect And Meal Planning was Sexy! with Robyn Downs of Real Food Whole Life

Mar 1, 2019 01:18:06

Description:

It’s all great to educate and inspire based on personal experience, but it’s also great to have solid profesh research to back that jazzzz up. My guest today brings both to the table full of healthy food.. and to this energizing chat. Robyn Downes is the creator of Real Food Whole Life, and the host of the top-rated Feel Good Effect podcast who also holds a Master’s degree in education with an emphasis in behavior change who, at the doctoral level has researched the crap out of how people create and sustain lasting wellness. What I heart most about Robyn is not just her willingness to be honest and vulnerable about her shtuff, not just her mission to embody and amplify a gentle approach to wellness, (hence her motto, #gentleisthenewperfect), but her super nerdy professional research background which she draws on to share cutting edge science-based, (and life-tested) radically simple solutions for wellness. I think this couldn’t be sexier. She says the opposite. I’ll let you listen and be the sexy judge.

 

Get amped to hear:

The sexiest meal planning advice you’ve ever heard. Truly. How to stop feeling like a failure and instead, start feeling in control of your mental and physical wellness. Why self care is so not that hard and how to simplify it! The three components that make up a “striving mindset” (which are probs blocking you from achieving your goals). How to nix the all-or-nothing approach that leads to quitting! Why gentle is the new perfect. What “the essential six” are and how they’ll simplify your grocery shopping and cooking. And lots more!

131. How to Mom-Hack Your Way to Healthy Sanity (applicable if you’re a mom to a child, a dog or a cactus.) with Dr. Darria Long

Feb 22, 2019 01:07:19

Description:

Today’s guest seems like that woman who has it allllll figured out. That’s probably because Dr. Darria Long IS that woman who has it all figured out! :-) This is a woman who’s a successful ER doctor and ON TOP of that, a regular media expert, author and MOM. Or MOMMY -- I dunno what her kiddos call her. I met Darria backstage at The Dr. Oz Show! She was this peppy little lady who, at first glance from my peripheral in my makeup chair, I figured was some Zumba instructor about to make Dr. Oz all sweaty on TV, but then I learned that she’s a graduate of Harvard and Yale and someone Dr. Oz refers to as the "make-life-better-for-women-doctor.” Darria’s brand new book, Mom Hacks, is a simple, digestible and to-the-point guide for moms buckling under the pressure of raising little humans while maintaining the health of your regular-sized-human-self. Oh and if you’re only a mom to an animal..or a snake plant, don’t skip this chat because this sucker here is stuffed with tangible advice that’ll leave you deep breathing while saying “I’ve got this!” Which, deep breath, you do. Buckle up baby, this is a good one!

 

Press play to hear:

 

How to chill out with the whole parenting thing and give yourself a break A tip for losing the baby weight that ACTUALLY works A 12-second exercise that will make your day so much less stressful A long list of hacks that will make being a mom so much easier Reasons why the notion that being a parent means to sacrifice your health is complete BS What is a gratitude list and why you should start one Sneaky ways to outsmart picky eater kids Hacks to make dinner healthier and cooking easier And lots more!

130. Saying YAS to Saying More NO + Other Self-Care Strategies that Actually Work! with Carley Schweet

Feb 15, 2019 01:11:03

Description:

My guest today believes in saying yes to saying no. Carley Schweet is a self care coach believes that boundaries might be as healing as berries! Ok, that’s not a direct quote but after hearing how Carley talks about the expense on our emotional, mental and physical wellbeing a lack of boundaries can have on us, you’ll see why adding boundaries to our life can be berry-esque. Carley has been teaching women how self caring the RIGHT way (like not just in the Insta-friendly, sorry, bubble baths...) which has helped her clients break off toxic engagements, improve sleep, ask for raises, quit jobs and learn to be more rebellious.

 

Before she was the wellness coach she is today, Carley was living in NYC working in the fashion industry and suffering from a major case of burnout. After an ah-ha! moment, she changed directions, launched her coaching business a year later and later became the author of “Boundaries with Soul.” Currently, she lives in a house in the country just outside of Seattle where she has a yard, a 100-plus year old house and even her own chickens. Basically, she knows a thing or two about bold lifestyle changes so open your ears because this gal knows her stuff!

Feb 8, 2019 01:24:02

Description:

I don’t think there’s a person sweeter, sillier, smarter, and more passionate about the power of plants than Sarah Britton. If you don’t recognize the name Sarah Britton, perhaps saying MY NEW ROOTS will do the trick? Which is the blog name she’s been running for over 12 years and has used to inspire and change lives of hundreds of thousands of people all over the world? Yep! What started as a way for Sarah to simply share all this exciting life-changing healthy stuff she was learning with someone other than her uninterested ex boyfriend, has morphed into a full blown plant-eating movement, complete with an app, two books, retreats and a print shop. I thought we’d just be talking about plants, the subjects in Sarah’s drool-worthy photos, but this conversation led us to a truly holistic chat about health from the ground to the plate to the mouth to the mind! And speaking of mind, prepare for yours to be blown.

 

You’ll hear:

Me embarrass Sarah about her site being a .org not a .com! #weirdo The farm experience that radically transformed Sarah’s life. How it feels to have hundreds of thousands of people cook her recipes in their homes! How for her, food styling = self love. The pre-eating ritual that changes lives (and improves digestion). Her famous recipe that bakeries all over the world make and sell! The shocking piece of kitchen equipment Sarah found in her TRASH. And loads more!

128. Why Do The Matcha and Gojis if You’re Not Even Getting in 8-10 Cups of Greens a Day? with McKel Hill of Nutrition Stripped

Feb 1, 2019 01:13:33

Description:

McKel Hill, a superstar dietician and the founder of the powerhouse wellness brand called Nutrition Stripped has been stripping down the complex topic of nutrition for five epic years now! In those five years, she’s written a cookbook, launched a robust society (not a secret one though), operates a thriving coaching practice, built a shop of super adorbs planty t-shirts and sexy stationary, and has brought knowledge and inspiration to millions and millions of health-seeking peeps. For someone whose senior high school superlative was to be “the Next Picasso,” she’s really been rocking the “next impressive and stylish entrepreneur female judge on Shark Tank” superlative these days, too. Here’s my chat with her about how she balances it all while keeping her body healthy and her plant eating on fleek!

 

Press play to hear:

 

Her never-shared-on-a-podcast-before (I’m assuming...don’t fact check me) story of how she got engaged to a dude with the same name as my engaged dude! What she says when people complain about their hubby, roomie, etc. not wanting to also eat healthfully. How she created her massive brand “Nutrition Stripped.” Why she believes that “nutrition found her.” Her food philosophy in a nutshell...which coincidentally involves nuts. How to balance balance. Why she routinely strives to be uncomfortable (and why I think that’s a key to her major success!). Why she also strives to adhere to a morning routine to be comfortable (and why she says that’s a key to HER major success!). And lots more.

127. Got Soup? How Slurping Might Be The Most Souper Antidote to Your Food Stress! with Nicole Centeno of Splendid Spoon

Jan 25, 2019 01:02:26

Description:

My guest today is really souper. And the queen of all things sippable and spoonable. Nicole Centeno is the founder of Splendid Spoon, a food delivery company that takes care of meal prep by sending peeps plant-party soups and smoothies so you can slurp up for breakfast and/or lunch and then sit pretty knowing you stole more than your required dose of fruits and veggies by noon. Suck on that, healthy eating is hard mentality! In our chat, Nicole serves more than soup - she dishes out so much wisdom about how simple it can actually be have a packed schedule (she’s juggling a company and two kiddos!) and still pack in the plants. What I love most about this entrepreneurial and enthusiastically health-conscious soup master is that she’s as down to earth as her foods. Nicole opens up about how, back in the day, she used to stress so much about food and her relationship with it. While she was pregnant with her first child, she was going craaaazy about doing everything right and treating eating like it was some sort of mysterious equation. Quickly she learned how those obsessive, worrying thoughts around food didn’t work. [Shocker.] And instead, she discovered how calming down about the whole healthy eating thing and making small, simple changes can radically change a life. [Also shocker.]

 

Press play to hear:

 

How to get your plant party on from morning ‘til noon How to soup up your soup game Why white knuckling does. not. work. Strategies for upping your smoothie game so you’re sipping on high-protein, low sugar blends How dinner stress can FINALLY be a thing of the past Three reasons that will make soups one of your menu staples forever A down-to-earth approach to revamping your relationship with food Plus some unlikely secret ingredients for your soups and smoothies that will change your world And more!

126. 6 Kitchen Tools That Make Healthy Cooking Suck Way Less ;-)

Jan 18, 2019 25:25

Description:

I totally understand that it might not be your instinct to buy a ton of kitchen gadgets. You might be reluctant to trade your time for money and then trade that money for some unnecessary kitchen tools. Especially after you got that completely unnecessary banana peeler. I get it. But I also get how daunting it can feel to be like “let me just whip up a healthy dinner” and then look at your bare hands and a potato, wondering what to do next. So in this episode, I share the top kitchen tools that, in my plant-party experience, are MUST HAVE’s if YOU want to have healthy meals easily coming out of your kitchen and into your mouth!

125. The One Where a Doctor Raps. And Dumps Gut-Saving Advice! with Dr. Will Bulsiewicz

Jan 11, 2019 01:43:53

Description:

My guest today is one of a kind. He’s also just, kind. Dr. Will Bulsiewicz is a speaker, blogger, father, husband, microbiome specialist and a full time practicing Gastroenterologist. Now admittedly, I haven’t had the best experiences with gastro’s - I saw a couple many years ago in the heyday of my digestive struggles and they were not personable, not helpful and nowhere close to being on the “food-affects-your-gut-health” train. So aside from Dr. B’s hilarity, well-spoken-ness and palpable through the phone sincerity for educating and helping heal guts, the fact that he’s as passionate about plants as any person I’ve ever encountered -- which goes back to what I said earlier about him being one of a kind. Aside from being seen in scrubs and colonoscopies at and The Lowcountry Gastroenterology Practice in South Carolina, he’s been featured in Men’s Health, Huff Post, Women’s Health, & Reader’s Digest and hear me when I say his instagram account: @theguthealthmd is a hoot and a half plus an extra half of having helpful information!

 

Press play to hear:

 

- Why doctors aren't being taught about food, nutrition, and diet.

- All about the microbiome, baby!!

- The very bad effects of losing gut diversity.

- How stress messes with your digestion. (My favorite topic.)

- The magic of fiber and how it's like a super hero.

- How sad the Standard American Diet really is…

- The #1 one thing we can add to our diets to improve our gut health!

- Advice for raising kids to have healthy tummies.

- A garden analogy to explain probiotics and prebiotics.

- And SO. MUCH. must-hear. MORE. !!

124. Anxiety’s SO Last Year. Here’s How to Ditch Non-Productive Worries, Quit Overthinking and Truly Calm the F*&k Down! with Sarah Knight.

Jan 4, 2019 01:05:48

Description:

When it comes to giving advice, today’s guest doesn’t hold back. And because of that, she’s back! On my podcast! Because I just can’t get enough of Sarah Knight’s hilariously no BS tough love and her out of the box mind altering metaphors galores. And I’m not alone in not being able to get enough of Sarah Knight, considering she’s, like, an internationally best selling author of 3 - going on 4 - books!

 

In case you missed my first chat with Sarah back in episode 70, you should know that this funny lady and super likeable human is most well known for her first book called “The Life changing Magic of Not Giving a Fuck,” which has had readers from around the world LOLing while taking away magical lessons in saying bye to unwanted obligations. She’s also the hit writer of “Get Your Shit Together” and “You do You” - guides that hand hold you through making big life changes and embracing your imperfections. Now, Sarah has another work hitting shelves and kindles called “Calm the Fuck Down” and it’s another pee your pants funny and uncensored guide to… well, calming the fuck down.

 

Needless to say, this chat has a lot of unbleeped bleeps in it, as well as unbelievably awesome advice on how to stop overthinking, go easy on your freak outs, stop stressing about the uncontrollable, and just let shit goooooooo….

Dec 28, 2018 23:05

Description:

Since I have technology to remind me of all the podcast episodes that hit your earbuds in 2018, (thank you a mundo for listening, by the way!) I wanted to shimmy through the highlights of this year. The following 18 things are things I heard on my show this year that made me go WOAH.

These are facts that stopped me in my tracks, ideas that made me think a little differently, tips that helped me eat a little differently or were just catchy, coo, clever ways my guests phrased something I already knew to be true.

120. This is Wussup with Spiritual Fitness! (& why info alone doesn't change anyone) with Patricia Moreno, founder of IntenSati

Dec 6, 2018 58:51

Description:

My guest today is like the fitness industry’s OG OG, blazing fiery hot trails in the fitness space for well over two decades and impacting the lives and bodies of tens of thousands of humans worldwide. Patricia Moreno grew up with her fair share (and really, an extra share) of weight struggles and found fitness to be the greatest catalyst of change. She quickly rose to the top of the world HEY!, and dominated the fitness scene, only to find herself in a deeper struggle with her body image than ever before. Thanks to many epiphanies and the patience to take a long and winding road, Patricia found herself in a new world: the world of spiritual fitness. She created her signature workout called IntenSati which is a groundbreaking way to sweat that combines high energy cardio, mindfulness, meditation and the power of yelling out positive things which has proven time and time again to legit bring out participant’s inner badass best selves. Speaking of Patricia yelling out positive things, that’s what most of this conversation is - I triple down dog DARE you to not be LIT UP after hearing our chat.

Get hopped up to hear:

What the fitness industry looked like way back in the day. Like over 7,300 days ago. (That's 20 years.) Everythang wrong with the idea that skinny = happy Why everything else is a moot point if your MIND isn’t at the party What Patricia’s life was like being overweight at age 8 The rockies of rock bottoms Patricia had that led her to jazz hands out of traditional fitness and lead the way to spiritual fitness What really creates true, lasting change How she instills a positive body image in the hearts and heads of her three daughters And so much more!

119. How Combining Mantras & Movement is Like PB&J: Soulmates. (And Not-Live-Without-Able.) with Erin Stutland!

Nov 29, 2018 01:00:09

Description:

In the same way that somebody once combined peanut butter and jelly to make a flavor combination arguably more desirable than sex, and in the same way another person combined a leggings with jeans to give our fashion-forward legs some freedom, my guest today has combined metaphysics with physical fitness in a way that can pretty much most def help you get things that you desire. Erin Stutland has created a method of combining movement with mindfulness in an actually do-able, not too woowoo-able way. Erin is an author of the upcoming book “Mantras In Motion: Manifesting What You Want Through Mindful Movement,” a fitness coach and creator of the Shrink Session program, the TV show host of Z Living’s cable series, Altar’d, all about true and lasting transformation. I’ve gotta say that this here chat with Erin has had a true and lasting impact on me. Kind of like how once you discover how harmoniously PB&J go together, or once you try on jeggings, you can’t UNtaste PB&J or smile as you put on regular jeans, after hearing Erin’s strategies for paying attention to what the heckers you say to yourself while you’re working out, you won’t be able to NOT sweet talk yourself through your next sweat sesh.

 

Get psyched to hear:

 

Why mantras* are so powerful How combining mantras with movement is legit magic *WTF a “mantra” actually is and how to hook yourself up with your own A story that straight up proves manifestation How and why it’s ok to push yourself to exercise The weirdest and most surface level about a coat Why it’s weirdly tricky business figuring out what we actually desire A realistic way to get on the mantra + movement train right this second Some tough love for my sister to get into a sweat habit (!!!) And lots more!

118. A Lesson in Saying THANKSforGIVING Us Pain to Turn into Purpose (and to Tune us into Wellness). with Brittany Piper

Nov 22, 2018 01:00:02

Description:

My guest today is a survivor, speaker, activist and storyteller. She’s a wearer of many hats. Which we get deep into in this chat. This is also a deep chat in many other ways because my guest and darling friend Brittany Piper has overcome not just one, but many of the most horrific events any of us could imagine: sexual assault, eating disorders, the death of her brother and alcoholism. Brittany, not to sound cliche, turned her pain into purpose and is now a leading national expert speaker on sexual violence and prevention, as well as a healing and wellness coach. She uses her story of adversity, resilience and triumph to empower and inspire women to take brave action in their own lives and communities and she uses her story of trauma to inspire me in this interview to OWN my own stories even more than I already own my own stories, and I hope she inspires you in this chat to own yours too. And to watch more Law and Order SVU.

 

Press play to hear:

 

How Brittany miracuously decided to see her trauma as a gift. The importance of OWNING your stories (and how that relates to ice cream!). That more experiences than you might think count as trauma. And why that’s ok. Even good? How to maybe stop using alcohol as a tool, if you are? How to use letter writing as a form of self love. Why sharing is way more than caring. A few good Law and Order SVU analogies. How breath and plants are legit a form of healing from trauma. And a lot more!

117. Becoming More Chill Around Food, Not Going Nuts on Nuts & Living Like a KWEEN! with Ali Bonar (aka the AVOKWEEN)

Nov 15, 2018 01:05:59

Description:

Today’s guest relationship with food used to be nuts. Her relationship with nuts used to be nuts, too. But neither of those things are nuts anymore, as Ali Bonar has learned both, how to be chill around food and how to enjoy nut butter vibes without nuts in said butter. Ali, known on the interwebs as the AVOKWEEN, is incredibly passionate about helping other ladies regain their kween-ness and feeling body positive once and for all. She’s also passionate about dripping her Granola Butter (a product she and boyfriend invented) all over smoothie bowls. But in this breaking news conversation, Ali reveals the truth about who’s really eating the stuff she photographs! I love Ali not only because she and I both admit to having had awkward body insecurity vendettas over high school volleyball shorts and not only because she sat in her car to record our entire interview, but also because she, too, believes in the importance of telling it like it freaking is thank you very much, and in this fun conversation, I think, and I hope, we told a lot of things like they freaking are thank you very much!

 

You’ll hear:

All about portion distortion and how to stop having it. What being a KWEEN is all about, and how to be more “kweeny?” What being chill around food looks like...and doesn’t look like. How Ali realized she had nutrition information overload, and how she unloaded. A strategy for scrolling social media more consciously. A secret behind all that food porn you’re seeing… And lots more!

116. How I PIMPed My Wedding (Party in My Plants’ed it) or: How I Had a Healthy Wedding :-)

Nov 8, 2018 40:46

Description:

This episode is all about how I PIMPED my wedding! Meaning, how I added lots of plants to it. And also, how I made it uniquely mine. And even more, how I didn’t let my healthy habits compromise my happiness, nor let the happiness of my wedding drive me away from my health.

 

I hope this episode sheds a little light on some literal, tangible, recreatable things I did to infuse the prioritization of my wellbeing into a wild thing like a wedding. You’ll hear a little about my journey from sad girl dreading her eventual wedding day because she’d be too depressed, bloated or sick to enjoy it to a happy lady who just had her wedding day feeling more calm, healthy and confident than she ever could’ve imagined. Through it, I’ve learned that eating more plants than you do crap is a complete game-changer, as is prioritizing stress reduction over everything else, all while being as authentic and confidently YOURSELF as humanly possible. I’d say that’s the magic sauce. The secret sauce? MMM sauce, now i’m craving that butternut squash sauce on the gnocchi at the wedding…...

115. THIS IS THE ONLY CLEAN EATING CONVERSATION YOU NEED! with Terry Walters, 3x clean food author and OG clean eating queen!

Oct 25, 2018 01:02:02

Description:

As part of my October of re-broadcasting some of my favorite episodes that are related to wedding stuff since I’m currently on my honeymoon in the Seychelles, today’s guest gets a rebroadcast not just because it was one of the more prolific, helpful and inspiring episodes of this podcast thus far, and not only because it originally aired 2 years ago which is a long time ago, but because my guest, Terry Walters, was actually invited to my wedding! But couldn’t come! Which was very sad. Because I had GREAT clean food waiting for her. But she still gifted jesse and me a beautiful wooden salad bowl. Hey! Does shout out on a podcast into take the place as a Thank You Card??? I never know proper etiquette….Anyway, Terry Walters, who just so happened to be my neighbor growing up, was one of the OG “clean eaters.” Her first book, “Clean Food” came out waaaaay before “clean” related to food in any way other than sanitary! But “clean eating” has since turned into a vague, trendy, confusing, catch-all phrase, right? Well in this episode, I egg Terry on to lay down the law about what clean eating REALLY is (and really isn’t), so you don’t have to keep hearing stuff from the organic grapevine. Oh, and spoiler alert: clean eating is pretty much the same as plant-partying! Woohoo!!!

113. On Shrooms Yet? Learn About the Everyday Magic of Mushrooms! with Tero Isokauppila, founder of Four Sigmatic

Oct 18, 2018 46:36

Description:

In keeping with my October of re-broadcasting some of my favorite episodes that are related to wedding stuff since I’m currently on my honeymoon in Africa, I had to re-share this chat with a product I’m likely currently sipping with water in Cape Town right now: SHROOMS! You already heard about my fondness for the mushrooms, but in this chat you’ll hear about the functionality of them. And the science behind it. And the way that 13-generation mushroom expert Tero and his team at the company he founded, Four Sigmatic, actually makes mushroom teas that don’t MAKE you gag and actually MAKE you feel like a better, stronger, well-er version of yourself.

 

Get ready to hear:

 

How, for Tero, mushrooms are basically ninja turtles. What an ADAPTOGEN really is. (And FYI, it’s REALLY cool.) Why mushrooms are really really good for you. And which ones you might wanna start with. The real reason I crave mushrooms so hard since I’ve started drinking them. (And no it’s not because I’m “addicted.”) Even though they won’t make you hallucinate, Tero considers mushrooms *MAGIC.* This is why. How Four Sigmatic actually makes mushroom tea that doesn’t make you gag. And much more!

112. How to Eat Healthfully at Work. WITHOUT it Being Work! with Tracie Kendziora

Oct 15, 2018 01:08:12

Description:

As part of my October of re-broadcasting some of my favorite episodes that are related to wedding stuff since I’m currently on my honeymoon in Cape Town, I couldn’t NOT re-air an episode with a wedding guest! Whose bread and vegan butter is something so relevant right now as we’re in the throws of fall -- eating plants in a pantsuit! Or in whatever else you wear to an office. I’m in sweats and a tee right now. Am I wearing a bra? Oh wow I put one on today! Go me! Anyway, my friendship story with my guest, Tracie Kendziora, is kind of adorable - and a true testament to the power of the internet and the coolness of coaching. Tracie signed up for private coaching with me 3 years ago and we worked together for many months. Through our coaching we became more like friends than coach and coachee and eventually dropped the coaching and just kept chatting as gal pals. Though my loving encouragement, she ended up quitting her job to focus on her two passions - clean cubicle eating and hilarious wellness copywriting. Now she helps peeps with both! She also helps me now! With this here podcast! Yes, she’s gone from client to friend to contractor and she came from Florida to also tack on the title of wedding guest too, which was the first time we ever met in the flesh. I hope she knows I don’t normally wear dresses that nice... or white….Anyway, I think this chat with Tracie about balancing wellness with work without making clean eating a second full-time job is GOLD and I hope you steal some tips and put em in your stapler drawer.

 

You’ll hear:

The most important thing to NOT do before a meeting. ACTUALLY why your coworkers make you feel guilty about your salad. Awesome items to keep in your healthy desk drawer. Really clever ways to move more at work! One of which I implemented immediately… Mason jar salads 101. And loads more!

111. How to Give Less Craps about Your Pant Size. Here’s Proof That You are Way More Than Your Thighs! with Simi Botic

Oct 11, 2018 01:24:27

Description:

As part of my October of re-broadcasting some of my favorite episodes that are related to wedding stuff since I’m currently on my honeymoon in Botswana, I knew this chat would be PERFECT one to bring back from the archives. Not only is it one of the top downloaded episodes of my show, and for damn good reason, but it specifically talks about a life altering epiphany that happens ON A HONEYMOON! I know, right?!?! Told you this chat would be a perfect one. But perfect isn’t really the goal anymore because this episode is all about how my guest, Simi Botic, used to let her need for perfection actually ruin a lot of great big events in her life like her proposal (which we talk about) and her honeymoon (which we also talk about) by giving way too many craps about her body. Simi freaks out a lot less now since she broke up with perfection, and in this chat, we dive alllll the way into how she did that and what the heck breaking up with perfection even means! This isn’t an arbitrary conversion, by the way, helping give up perfectionism about their diet and exercise is exactly what Simi does for a living! In addition to being a coach, Simi wrote a magnificent, hilarious and heartfelt book called Letting Go of Leo, which is truly so good that one night I delayed watching The Bachelor to read Simi’s book in bed which is the highest compliment I could give a book so there you go Simi. I love this cozy convo and I’m pretty positive you will too!

 

Press play to hear:

 

How to let your mess become your success. How to stop focusing on being perfect all the time! Why to see failures as feedback and opportunities for growth. An argument for taking yourself to couples counseling! How to exercise your right to stop freaking out about exercise... What Mother Teresa, Sarah Silverman, and Simi have in common. A very important rule about birthday cake! And LOTS more.

110. Pop! Goes the Magic Needle. Why to Try Acupuncture...Like, Yesterday! With James Rohr, L.Ac

Oct 8, 2018 54:29

Description:

As part of my October of re-broadcasting some of my favorite episodes that are related to wedding stuff since I’m currently on my honeymoon in Botswana, this chat with my acupuncturist, James Rohr absolutely HAD to be the first chat to re-air, because getting his needles in my meridians were a significant part of my surviving the cray cray wedding process! James’ needles are my first destination when I need to boost my immunity, up my digestion game, alleviate anxiety or even, as you’ll hear, just pump my brakes and take a nap. I usually get some ‘puncture about once a month for general maintenance purposes, but in the last few months leading up to the wedding, I became an every other weeker, and then in the final month, an every weeker!! Not only do I have deep respect and admiration for his work and just acupunct as a whole, but as you’ll surely notice, James totally breaks the mold of what you might think of as a Chinese medicine healer. He’s a freaking funny dude! Half the time I’m with him I’m cracking up on his table, nervous that I’m gonna pop some needles out of me. I’m fortunate, well, we’re fortunate that James, who runs an acupuncture practice here in Brooklyn but also another one in Miami and used to be the head acupuncturist at Canyon Ranch Miami Beach, gave us so much wisdom, time and concrete reasoning behind this totally magical-woowoo-WTF-seeming healing modality that is acupuncture.

 

You’ll hear:

Exactly what the eff acupuncture is! How this magic-like treatment ACTUALLY works. The #1 common ailment James treats that can alleviate so many other ailments. Ways you can avoid a bogus acupuncturist. That time James left a needle in someone… That other time James’ acupuncture treatment knocked a woman up… And so much more!

108. Having Your Gluten-free Vegan Cake and Eating It, Too! with Emily Lael Aumiller of Lael Cakes!

Sep 27, 2018 01:05:27

Description:

In terms of making my ultimate wedding dream a reality, today’s guest takes the cake. And bakes it. Since that ultimate wedding dream I just spoke of was to be able to eat my own damn wedding cake at my own wedding. Without a stupid belly ache. So since Emily Lael Aumiller, the founder of Lael Cakes and an allergen-free pastry chef extraordinaire makes the world’s best vegan and gluten-free cakes, she’s essentially my wedding fairy godmother! I’m excited to share with you how Emily went from pastry sculpting to cake sculpting, and how through a fateful intervention of a lot of allergies, Emily decided to sculpt cakes those of us who have sensitives systems and/or just prefer not putting crap into our bodies can enjoy with glee!

Emily’s company, Lael Cakes, is a Brooklyn based boutique cake studio that uses her own unique blend of non-gluten flours (don’t worry, I tell you what’s in the blend) to make the perfect pastry flour. It’s incredible how Emily substitutes real food ingredients for refined sugar, saturated fat, and dairy and uses dyes extracted from the natural pigments of fruits and vegetables to give her treats incredible scrumptious vibrant colors.

 

Press play to drool and hear:

How the slow food movement (and food allergies) inspired her to create allergen-free pastries The gluten-free flour mix Emily invented and swears by What happens when you take away all the overly processed ingredients The kind of sugar most traditional bakeries use How to have self-discipline when you're around cake all day Why Emily creates vegan AND non-vegan cakes (and feels good about it) A behind-the-scenes peek at how I picked my wedding cake How she designs unique cakes for each and every client The style of cake that lets Emily's creativity shine through How to paint your cake with plants Emily's take on the dessert table trend Tips for overcoming the gluten-free vegan baking struggle And much more!

107. How to Have a Healthier Relationship with Healthier Makeup! with Sarah Rose, Makeup Therapist (and my natural wedding makeup artist!!)

Sep 20, 2018 01:33:55

Description:

My guest today only uses nontoxic attitudes and nontoxic products! And obviously believes in the power of eating non-toxic plant foods. Sarah Rose is a New York City-based Makeup Artist who, after working in the conventional make up industry, became appalled AF at how much pressure the media and beauty industry puts on women to meet the social construct of beauty. She experienced first hand how this drove women's insecurity levels way down and their crappy product purchases way up--and who's to benefit? Certainly not these women--instead, the pockets of these big conglomerate corporations who own most of the industry and even the petrochemical industry! It's one big vicious cycle.So in 2014, Sarah Rose was inspired to shift focus in her practice and she switched over to the good side - completely non-toxic, clean products, all made by smaller, passionate makers while deconstructing one's relationship with beauty. As a self-proclaimed Makeup Therapist, it's her goal to empower her clients to find confidence even barefaced! Without makeup! And by using plant-based skincare mixed with a plant-based diet, Sarah Rose works to empower women through revealing their inner + outer beauty.

 

Oh! And Sarah Rose also does wedding day make up! She’s doing my wedding makeup in 2 weeks which I couldn’t be more excited for because her M.O. is helping brides naturally shine like their best selves on their wedding day, not look like the most makeup-ed self on their wedding day. Just for funsies I took some photos from our clean wedding make up trial and put them in the show notes alongside photos I took from my shall I say bluntly, TOXIC wedding make up trial photos if you want to take a peeksies at the obvious difference in favor of clean beauty and being a natural bride, you can do so at partyinmyplants.com/107.

 

Press play to hear:

How to begin fixing the emotional and physical relationship we have to beauty and makeup What the clean beauty industry needs to do better What stress is REALLY doing to your skin The skin concerns you can't fix without fixing your gut How to elevate your everyday look for not-so-everyday events The product that helps you fake some inner light Whether or not EVERYONE can wear a bold red lip Finally figuring out the difference between BB cream, CC cream, and tinted moisturizers A non-boring clean beauty history lesson Busting myths about the efficacy of clean beauty products The absolute BEST places to get your hands on some clean beauty products What label doesn't actually mean a product is clean or natural (#sorrynotsorry) Some scare tactics to steer you away from conventional beauty products Why clean beauty products look more natural than conventional beauty products Wedding Day Makeup 101 – prep, application, and removal And more!!!

106. When Breakfast is Way More than Breakfast. (and when acai is all it’s hyped up to be!) with Ksenia Avdulova of Breakfast Criminals

Sep 13, 2018 01:07:22

Description:

The story of today’s guest is a long and winding and one that involves crime, international borders and an eff ton of breakfast. Ksenia Avdulova is the breakfast eater behind the @breakfastcriminals an award-nominated wellness brand that meticulously manages to merge food with mindfulness. (And dangerously leads to acai and smoothie bowls cravings on the regular.) What started as a whatevs, yolo instagram account devoted to sharing healthy brekkies has since transformed into much more than talking about the mornin’ meal, Ksenia’s now really the leader of a self love and self realization movement who believes that How you start your day is really - how you live your life. (Which explains why she loves to start hers in her signature heart-shaped bowl.) I only thought it was apropos for me to much on my breakfast protein waffles while interviewing Ksenia so if you think you’re hearing chews, you’re not imagining it! It’s me!

 

Get stoked to hear:

- A twisty-turny immigration story (that totally has to do with breakfast)

- How (and why) Ksenia started making her own acai bowls

- What started Ksenia's self-care journey (featuring a rock icon lookalike)

- Why the most important thing is to enjoy your food and eat mindfully

- How to practice your intuition and decide if you need chocolate or a hug

- What to ask yourself when you're standing in front of all the ice cream

- The traditional way to eat acai bowls (it's not what you see on Instagram)

- Why more superfoods isn't so super

- What sparked Ksenia's passion for authenticity and conscious consumerism on social media

- The reality TV show Ksenia once applied for (!)

- What you should do if you're not into eating in the A.M.

- And lots more!

And which lives on the SPECIAL FAVORITE COOKBOOKS section of my cookbook library, I’d like to add. Their plant-forward approach to eating and their joy-filled approach to cooking, mixed with their humble approach to love is what makes this couple pretty simply awesome. It was tricky tricky business scheduling this interview with BOTH Sonja and Alex but I just couldn’t settle one half of the couple cooks and I’m so thrilled I get to share both of them with you today! I’m also thrilled I got to pick their brain about kitchen tools to register for before it was too late. Mmhm, listen up!

- How to not want to use your knives on your loved ones when cooking together

- Whether Alex or Sonja is the better baker and what they make everyday

- What they eat when they don't want to deal with the process of making French toast

- What to do if meal prep is totally not your thing

- How not to be afraid of going to the grocery store

- The simple thing that will make you love your veggies, even Brussels sprouts

- What they wish they would have registered for to stock their kitchen as newlyweds

- The importance of not rushing through cooking and eating

100. 6 Wellness Truths and a Lie! THE 100TH EPISODE

Aug 2, 2018 30:55

Description:

It’s my 100th podcast episode! That’s a lot of podcast episodes! Almost as many podcast episodes as half the amount of episodes of the total amount of friends episodes! I had to do to something stellar to commemorate my 100th episode, (cuz you gotta do something to commem that 100th ‘sode!) and I couldn’t help but feel a calling about letting out a big luxurious vent about what has changed about wellness since I started my podcast 100 episodes ago. A lot’s different. Both in my heart and soul and in the “wellness industry,” and in this podcast episode I play one of my favorite games and share 2 truths and a lie all about the wellness industry! Except I have 6 truths and a lie. Or maybe that’s the lie and I have 7 truths! I guess you’ll have to press play and see…

Graham Fortgang is one half of the founding fathers...I mean founding brothers...of Matcha Bar, New York City’s first specialty matcha cafe, THE OG! that opened in Williamsburg, Brooklyn allll the way back in 2014. Since then, Graham and his brother Max have been fueling themselves with matcha in order to hustle their way to basically matcha world domination - opening new matcha cafe doors open on both East and West Coasts and launching some magical bottled matcha products nationwide. As a long-time matcha drinker myself (way before Instagram photos of matcha even existed, I’ll have you know), I’ve been dying to dive in deep on this now ultra trendy green coffee alternative, and I did well, because nobody can MATCH-a the Enthusiasm and knowledge Graham has in this chat about Matcha. This is the true story of how two dudes fell in love with matcha and why every day they hustlin’ to help you fall in love with it, too!

97. True Story: I Plant-Poisoned My Pup!

Jul 12, 2018 15:45

Description:

Today’s episode is a little change of pace. But it’s my podcast and I can do what I want to… so what I wanted to do this week was share a story I told at a storytelling show a couple months ago. What’s a storytelling show? Well have you heard of The Moth? The Moth in an organization dedicated to the art and craft of storytelling - that is, real people getting up in front of real audiences on a real stage with a real microphone telling real stories from their real, everyday lives. It’s pretty cool. So I didn’t perform this story at a Moth show but the next best thing  - a storytelling show called Speak Up in Connecticut in which my daddy dearest also performed!!! Awwwww how presh?! You might’ve heard me mention that I was going to be taking a stab at storytelling in episode 77 of this podcast with Simi Botic (whose book is chalk full of amazing stories by the way) and this story about my adorably doggie Tommy negatively benefiting from my healthy habits is that stab! The theme of the storytelling show I told it at was “Close Calls.” Ohhhhh, ahhhhh…..I hope you enjoy!

My guest today is not just a one, but a TWO time breast cancer survivor, which is not once inspiring but DOUBLY INSPIRING. (I really couldn’t come up with something more creative there.) Caryn Sullivan spent nearly 20-years working in the world of sports and entertainment largely at Disney & ESPN and the Minnesota Timberwolves, crushing her job in that intense environment by fueling herself with good ol’ Diet Dr. Peppers and endless bags of baked quote unquote “HEALTHY” chips. It wasn’t until her wake-up call with stage IV cancer  that Caryn changed her focus from looking good to being well. She launched her blog Pretty Wellness to chronicle her journey toward wellness by sharing stories and lessons learned through her own hardship and has since been a champion in motivating peeps to thrive in their lives. Caryn’s been seen on The Doctor Oz Show, Hallmark Channel’s Home & Family and inspires thousands to embrace wellness in the motivational speeches she gives throughout the country and in her motivational interview she gave me right here, right meow!

My guest today’s love for skin is way more than skin deep. Hehe like what I did there? I like it. And I also like everything Dr. Whitney Bowe had to say in this chat. Dr. Whitney is a renowned New York-based dermatologist (one of the most in-demand dermatologists in the country to toot her horn a little bit) and she’s incredibly passionate about researching and revealing the science that supports the link between nutrition and skincare.

Jun 21, 2018 57:52

Description:

Today’s episode is the Part 2 to my last episode (episode #93) and unlike The Hangover Part 2, this follow-up gets two thumbs up. Although this doesn’t have Bradley Cooper so you win some, you lose some. But my guest, Samantha Elkrief, is the perfect piggyback to Dr. Drew Ramsey from last week because she works with him! He’s the doctor in the nutritional psychiatry clinic and she’s the implementer! He’s the one all about the science of how food affects our mood and she’s the one about the hows of actually EATING said good moody food. Samantha’s a holistic health coach from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition (me too!) and a health supportive chef from the Natural Gourmet Institute (me also too!) and a social worker by way of Columbia University (me not at all).

93. Can You Eat to Beat Depression? How to Use Plant Food to Boost Your Mood! [PART 1] with Dr. Drew Ramsey

Jun 14, 2018 55:38

Description:

Today’s episode is part 1 of 2 because talking about eating to beat depression is THAT DAMN IMPORTANT. My guest today was a toughie to book - but soooo worth being that annoying persistent “oh god these people are going to hate me. If they’re even seeing these 39 emails” girl for. But I was elated to talk Dr. Drew Ramsey, who is a true pioneer in the space of mental health. He’s a psychiatrist who actually believes in the power of food or using “nutritional interventions” to help peeps overcome depression, anxiety and other emotional wellness issues -- hence his perfect nickname: the food shrink. Dr. Ramsey’s has a popular NYC clinic called the Brain Food Clinic, but he doubles as a farm boy who spends time doing farm stuff on his 127 acre organic farm in rural Indiana. He has a terrific ecourse called Eat To Beat Depression, he’s written 3 books including one called The Happiness Diet, another called Eat Complete: The 21 Nutrients that Fuel Brain Power, Boost Weight Loss and Transform Your Health and another called 50 Shades of Kale, which you’ll hear is a plant he’s particularly passionate about.

 

Feel HAPPY because you’re about to learn:

 

The GIANT impact food has on our mental health What the difference between mood and mental health really is The NUMBER ONE rule about mental health How to tell if you're in a bad mood or if it's more That mental health struggles are totally normal and affect way more people than you think Why functioning doesn't necessarily mean you're brain is healthy What Dr. Ramsey thinks the fifth vital sign should really be How medicine, food, and exercise work together to improve mental health Some very convincing data that your diet totally correlates to your mental health What you should do INSTEAD of taking supplements What to eat (and NOT to eat) for brain health Some bad advice you shouldn't listen to anymore And so much more!

92. Miss United States’ Secrets to a Gorgeous Mind (and a Planty Diet!) with Rachael Todd

Jun 7, 2018 58:01

Description:

The only way I’m even slightly able to relate to today’s guest is because I’ve seen Miss Congeniality upwards of 13 times (and yes could definitely recognize it through a hotel wall like Chandler duh). Rachael Todd, I mean, sorry, MISS UNITED STATES, is the leader of the Gorgeous Mind Movement - her creation to help women master their minds so they can create a life of meaning. Aside from being Miss United States, Rachael is mindset coach, a health coach, a speaker and an entrepreneur. As you’ll hear in our chat, before becoming Miss US, or even Miss Florida (oh yeah, she’s that, too!) she had to overcome BIG shiz like: self-doubt, insecurities, stress, fear, lack of balance and no knowledge on how to wear a crown. But I mean, does anyone know how to wear a crown until it’s time to wear a crown?

 

Press play to hear:

 

What the Miss United State Organization REALLY promotes (hint: probably not what you think) Why Rachael chose food and hunger in America as her platform How food banks are changing – for the better Putting science behind changing your mindset How to step in to your confidence and be a powerhouse The different forms that meditation can take Why you need to pull the monster out from under the rug Where confidence comes from when you're being judged on your bikini bod How Rachael fuels her body to fuel her Miss United States responsibilities What you need to work on BEFORE you clean up your diet And lots more!

89. What Wine Pairs Best with Salad And Everything Else About Fermented Grapes! with Bianca Bosker

May 17, 2018 01:10:34

Description:

My guest today used to just be a regular person. Or a civilian, as she calls it. Not too long ago Bianca Bosker was just a regular boxed wine drinker, not giving any thought or sniffs to wine that she’d sip, until one day she discovered something that forever changed the way she viewed fermented grapes: she stumbled upon the secret world of sommeliers and became, well, obsessed. I’m not going to spoil the rest of the story - I’ll let Bianca tell you her tale, but if you’ve been curious about how to feel more comfortable ordering or buying wine, which wines pair perfectly with planty dishes and whether wine really has any redeeming health qualities, I think that Bianca, the New York Times bestselling author of CORK DORK is the perfect person to satiate your thirst for vino knowledge!

 

Get buzzed to hear:

 

- The two senses we've forgotten about and how to develop them!

- The poetry (and bullshit) of tasting notes.

- A peek into the secret world of sommeliers (it includes dance classes, obvs).

- The difference between natural, organic, and biodynamic wine.

- Does wine have any redeeming health qualities?

- Why you shouldn’t feel bad buying wine based on a cute label!

- Bianca’s go-to wines for plant-y dishes.

- How to send a wine back the PC way.

- And lots more!

88. Eat Plants. Take Epic Dumps. Hear this Digestible Conversation about Gut Health! with Dr. Will Bulsiewicz

May 10, 2018 01:43:50

Description:

My guest today is one of a kind. He’s also just, kind. Dr. Will Bulsiewicz is a speaker, blogger, father, husband, microbiome specialist and a full time practicing Gastroenterologist. Now admittedly, I haven’t had the best experiences with gastro’s - I saw a couple many years ago in the heyday of my digestive struggles and they were not personable, not helpful and nowhere close to being on the “food-affects-your-gut-health” train. So aside from Dr. B’s hilarity, well-spoken-ness and palpable through the phone sincerity for educating and helping heal guts, the fact that he’s as passionate about plants as any person I’ve ever encountered -- which goes back to what I said earlier about him being one of a kind. Aside from being seen in scrubs and colonoscopies at and The Lowcountry Gastroenterology Practice in South Carolina, he’s been featured in Men’s Health, Huff Post, Women’s Health, & Reader’s Digest and hear me when I say his instagram account: @theguthealthmd is a hoot and a half plus an extra half of having helpful information!

 

Press play to hear:

 

- Why doctors aren't being taught about food, nutrition, and diet.

- All about the microbiome, baby!!

- The very bad effects of losing gut diversity.

- How stress messes with your digestion. (My favorite topic.)

- The magic of fiber and how it's like a super hero.

- How sad the Standard American Diet really is…

- The #1 one thing we can add to our diets to improve our gut health!

- Advice for raising kids to have healthy tummies.

- A garden analogy to explain probiotics and prebiotics.

- And SO. MUCH. must-hear. MORE. !!

May 3, 2018 01:08:43

Description:

My guest today believes that our relationship with food? It’s a relationship. Like a relationship we have with other humans. And just like we can talk to a therapist to help us fix our relationships issues with other humans, we can talk to a food therapist to help us fix our relationships issues with food. Shira Lenchewski is that food therapist! Shira’s an LA-based registered dietitian whose nutritional insights and recipes are faves among wellness-focused celebs and non-celeb awesome wellness-focused regular people too! What I love about Shira is that that she’s as real as they come - and she eyerolls alongside me when she hears the term mindful eating as well as shares the same tagline “being healthy eating doesn’t have to suck!” She recently came out with a book call The Food Therapist that’s jam-packed with refreshingly practical advice for helping peeps resolve their “it’s complicated” relationship with food! Alright, let’s do some food therapy, baby!

 

You’ll hear:

 

- Why not eating mindfully doesn't mean you lack willpower or you're lazy.

- How we've been conditioned to eat ice cream when we're sad.

- What you can learn from how a three-year-old eats a cupcake!

- The role of the pre-frontal cortex (yay science!).

- Where sugar does AND doesn't need to be.

- Reconciling wanting to look good vs. wanting a donut!

- Why ethical accounting doesn't have a place in your relationship with food!

- The importance of owning your decisions and indulging CONSCIOUSLY!

- And A LOT more!

86. What’s a Healthy Sex Life? Here’s How to Party in Your PANTS! with Shan Boodram

Apr 26, 2018 01:04:48

Description:

My guest today to sex what a nutritionist is to food. Just like a nutritionist can help you eat more naturally, Shan Boodran, a sexologist can help you hump more naturally! Shan is the Internet’s most sought-after sex educator - she has over 25 million YouTube views and she’s shared sex and relationship advice on ABC’s “The View,” MTV, The Steve Harvey Show, CNN, The New York Times, Forbes and Time Magazine. Her book, LAID (love it) was a Canadian Bestseller, she rocks a really cool LIVE Facebook show and she sells vibrator necklaces -- which yes, to answer your silent question, are for BOTH decoration AND functional use. I met Shan when I introduced her at The Good Fest and I saw women just get wet and wild listening to her talk about having a healthy sex life so I knew I had to bring her on my show. Full disclosure, I’m admittedly a pretty prude lady so I definitely had a couple squeamish moments throughout our chat, but as Shan says: “fear ruins everything” so I just went with it. She also says she has orgasms in her sleep sometimes so if that’s something you’re struggling with - not sleep orgasms, awake orgasms, there’s a lot of helpful tips to come. PUN! Ok, press play.

 

Get turned on to hear:

 

- How Shan shifted from journalism to sexology.

- What a healthy sex life like looks like!

- How to navigate a relationship when your sex drive differs from your partners.

- Is scheduling sex good or bad?

- The diff between love languages and sex languages!

- Ways to talk to your partner about sex and make it not weird...

- The parallels between food and sex :-D

- Yep, we talk about having orgasms ! ! !

- The connection between our mindset and our sexual experience. (this was huge!)

- Some habits that might be blocking your firey sex life.

- And LOTS more.

85. My Book Deal Story ~ All The Woohoo, Boohoo (& woowoo) Behind How I Got My Cookbook Deal!

Apr 23, 2018 01:06:17

Description:

Last month I shared the glorious news that I did, in fact, sign a book deal with Avery, an imprint of a publisher you miiiiight’ve heard of called Penguin Random House. If you saw that instagram post or read my announcement newsletter or overheard me talking about it on the Subway…or in my sleep, you might’ve drawn the conclusion that it was a boy meets girl, girl loves boy, boy and girl live happily ever after kind of story (except swap me for the boy and sub the book deal for the girl). But the truthful tale of my cookbook deal is anything but a straight, direct, easy line. It involved a lot of both woohoo AND boohoo, plus a surprising amount of woowoo …. all of which I dive into in this story. So if you press play on this episode thinking you’ll snag a copy and paste formula for getting your own cookbook deal, this probs isn’t the perfect episode for you, but if you’re open to hearing how achieving great dreams is completely possible with more hustle, heartbreak and some spiritual shiz sprinkled in, this episode might just do it for ya.

84. Actually, Being Health Conscious and Being Weight Conscious AREN’T the Same Diff! with Jess Sepel.

Apr 19, 2018 01:01:51

Description:

My guest today is straight up - my girl crush. Whatevs. I’ve got no shame. And there’s no reason she won’t be your girl crush, too, after hearing our chat and stalking her on the socials! Jess Sepel, known as JS Health online, is quickly becoming one of Australia’s most sought-after wellness and lifestyle advocates - because she’s so passionate about helping women achieve an actually balanced lifestyle and body by eating whole foods and by flicking off fad diets forever. Jess is not shy about sharing her personal story about how she went from a diet fanatic to a whole foods fan, (not the store, the actual whole...foods), and she uses her booming platform, her books, her clinical nutritionist education and her online course to help women build a truly healthy relationship with food. For real. It’s a thing. And in this chat I got the pleasure of asking Jess live, from across the world, exactly how that thing called a healthy relationship with food can be a thing for everyone! We had a very similar conversation when I interviewed her live at The Good Fest a couple months ago so I tried to forget what we spoke about then and be a curious george when picking her brain again! This is most-def one of the most tangible episodes to date so just a little FYI - a thorough recap of our chat lives over at at partyinmyplants.com/84.

 

Press play to hear:

 

- How Jess turned in to a walking, glowing billboard of health!

- Some gentle nutrition guidance.

- Ways to learn to to listen to your bod.

- Why a green smoothie won't do any good if you're constantly stressed!

- How to create a stress-free zone and set some social media boundaries. (FOR REALZ.)

- An almost unheard of recommendation about exercise!

- What to do when you wanna take a nap at 3 p.m….

- What to NEVER do when you come home from work!

- The connection between your mindset and your weight.

- And loads more :-)

83. Craving Pizza Or Cuddles! This’ll Clarify. And Help You Eat Based on Emotion! with Lindsey Smith

Apr 12, 2018 01:11:25

Description:

My guest today is an author, health coach, speaker, and fun food blogger behind Food Mood Girl. She also happens to dwell in one of my favorite non-NYC cities, Pittsburgh, where I go to cheer on the Steelers and eat great veggie burgers with my family who lives there! But this is about Lindsey Smith, not me. So yeah, Lindsey’s really passionate about creating plant-y recipes not just for taste-bud-ular-pleasure, but also for mental and emotional-pleasure as well. Her latest book is called Eat Your Feelings which is a title that I just ATE UP and so I wanted to bring her on to talk to us about how to, well, eat our feelings! Pretty straightforward. Although be forewarned: cravings? Not so straightforward as you’re about to learn.  

 

Strap on your seatbelt to hear:

 

Why feeling your feelings is a-okay! How to reclaim emotional eating. In which situations a kale smoothie might not be the right answer. When to listen to your cravings and when to not…. Why sometimes your cravings might lead you astray. The life lesson Lindsay learned through a grilled cheese. The #1 critical element at play when it comes to cravings. Some great foods to eat when you feel all sortsa moods. A mic drop moment on dealing with guilty food feelings. And more more more!

82. The Wellness Project 2.0 - SIBO, Spring Cleaning and STILL STOPPING STRESSING! with Phoebe Lapine

Apr 5, 2018 55:37

Description:

My guest today has tried on more healthy habits than Alessandra Ambrosio has tried on Victoria’s Secret Bras! Well, that’s not a fact-checked fact so don’t quote me on that, but Phoebe Lapine had certainly tried on her fair share of healthy habits. Phoebe is the awesome author of The Wellness Project, a memoir meets self-help book that chronicles her year-long health endeavor experimenting with health habits like managing stress, switching to green beauty products, etc. to help manage her autoimmune disease, Hashimoto’s and find “the middle ground between health and hedonism.” We walked through her intimate experience with each of those 11 habits in our first podcast convo (episode 37) and now Phoebe’s back to dish the “where they are now” dirt about what life’s been like in the wake of The Wellness Project and how she’s found perfect health and happiness and has no worries in the world. Yeah right. She actually tells us the total truth about how her health journey just keeps going on and what she’s doing nowadays to keep herself feeling as good as poss, and how you slash me can follow her lead in feeling as good as poss. YAAAS!

 

Get stoked to hear:

- The aftermath of The Wellness Project.

- Some of the symptoms of SIBO and what it really means.

- How stress really is the worst thing EVER.

- How to stop trying to be the cool girl and do what makes you feel good.

- Ways to isolate healthy habits and determining if they're a tool worth using.

- The importance of a vice detox and how to do it easily.

- And loads more!

81. Why Chiropractic Care Isn't Quackery (Just Helpful CRACK-ery)! with Dr. Kasey Johnson

Mar 29, 2018 01:07:02

Description:

My guest today is woman who takes pleasure in pop, lock and dropping spines. All in name of improving people’s overall well-being, preventing health issues and proving that she is NOT a Dr. Bobby Bobby. (Yes, that’s a friends reference. And yes, the scene I’m talking about is posted in the shownotes). Dr. Kasey Johnson is a family wellness chiropractor based in the Tampa Bay area. She’s so pumped about getting everyone hooked on crack...ing their spines, even at a young age, that she wrote a children’s book about going to a chiropractor! It’s like instead of goodnight moon, it’s like goodbye ear aches. Kasey also eats a lot of plants! And we speak about whether you can tell the difference between a plant-y spine and a non-plant-y spine. (The answer to which might surprise you!) In one sec, you’ll hear Kasey’s passion for chiropractic care just reek through your speakers and you’ll hear me ask hopefully and probably everything you’ve actually ever wanted to ask anyone about a chiropractor. I left no stones unturned. No spines unadjusted. I straightened everything out.

 

You’ll hear:

- What Friends got right (and wrong) about chiropractors!

- What exactly chiropractic care means and the benefits of it.

- A chiro’s stance on standing desks.

- How chiropractors are similar to doctors AND acupuncturists!

- How often you can get adjusted.

- Whether you can tell the difference between a plant-y spine and a non-plant-y spine.

- Why a car is the perfect analogy for your health.

- Plus, some pretty awesome chiropractic puns.

Mar 22, 2018 01:04:32

Description:

Rachel Hoffman is what happens when a professional bossy person is also a messy person. Rachel’s the founder of (pardon my french but get used to it because it’s the name of her brand and we talk about it a lot): Unf*ck Your Habitat, and she is the author of a book by the same name. Her thang is motivating regular peeps to get up, start cleaning, and get their lives in order because she really believes that our home should be somewhere where we’re comfortable and enjoy being in. I believe that, too. But I can’t believe we had such a fun conversation about cleaning! Seriously! You’re about to hear Rachel drop a ton of knowledge bombs that’ll help your home look less like a bomb exploded in it! That’s what my mom always used to say about my room growing up. Oh and we get into mommy issues in this chat, too! FUN!

79. Suck it, Inner Critic! How To Choose Outer Courage Instead. with Andrea Owen

Mar 15, 2018 59:14

Description:

Today’s guest knows a thing or two or 52 about how to live a kickass life. (She wrote a book called “52 Ways to Live a Kickass Life” so that one was way too easy.) But just like you are what you eat, Andrea Owen definitely is what she writes about, which is life kicker-asser and a not-feeling-like-shitter. (Her new book is called “How to Stop Feeling Like Shit.” Very literal titles. I’m into it.) Andrea is writer, mentor and life coach who helps high-achieving ladies let go of control and choose courage and confidence instead of letting their inner critics call the shots. She’s also a retired roller derby player who subtly hinted in this chat that she may come out of retirement. You heard it here first, folks! And if you don’t know much about what roller derby is, don’t worry, I ask. This is a great episode for those of us who spend way too much time comparing ourselves to others, as well as for those of us who love crying to Natalie Imbrulgia’s song TORN.

 

Press play to hear:

 

How Andrea found her calling on the internet. How to just be with your thoughts. What to do about social media + comparison + the fact that both make us feel like shit! Advice for shutting down your inner critic’s bullshit. What imposter syndrome, overachieving, and people pleasing have in common... Why it’s muy bueno to say “yes!” to saying “no!” :) How to have more fun as a grown-up. Yep.

78. You’ll Love this Lowdown on Low FODMAPs! with Kate Scarlata

Mar 8, 2018 01:20:41

Description:

My guest today is a lovely lady whom I warmly refer to as The Fairy Godmother of Low FODMAPs. She refers to herself as a registered and licensed dietitian, New York Times bestselling author and specialist in a low FODMAP diet and digestive health conditions, but I think The Fairy Godmother of Low FODMAPs sums it up rather nicely. I’ve received so many podcast question submissions about the increasingly trendy low FODMAP diet and I wanted to bring on the best of the best to give us the lowdown. Well, Kate is the best of the best and not just because I say so, or because Boston Magazine awarded her the best dietitian award in 2016 but also because she literally just co-authored the low fodmap roadmap called The Low Fodmap Diet Step by Step! So get ready to finally figure out this whole fodmap thingy majiggy, which might hopefully help your stomach if you struggle or just help you understand WTF this F-O-D-M-A-P lingo is all actually A-B-O-U-T.

 

Gut ready to hear….

- How an emergency surgery changed the way Kate eats

- Why “dry doody balls” aren’t actually very funny!

- What the hell are FODMAPs and what it even means.

- And also why you shouldn’t just randomly start a low FODMAP diet.

- The keys to low FODMAP success in the real world.

- And loads more!

77. How to Be Perfectly Cool with Being Imperfect! with Simi Botic.

Mar 1, 2018 01:24:58

Description:

My guest today used to freak out about food, her body, and not being perfect enough. It sucked. Simi Botic nearly ruined a lot of great big events in her life like her proposal (which we talk about) and her honeymoon (which we also talk about) by giving way too many craps about her body. But Simi freaks out a lot less now. Simi broke up with perfection, and in this episode, we dive all the way into how she did that and what the heck that even means. This isn’t an arbitrary conversion, by the way, helping give up perfectionism about their diet and exercise is exactly what Simi does for a living! In addition to being a coach, Simi just came out with a magnificent, hilarious and heartfelt book called “Letting Go of Leo,” which is truly so good that one night I delayed watching The Bachelor read Simi’s book in bed. I hope you know how many volumes that speaks….or big volumes that speaks? Or loud volumes it speaks?

 

Press play to hear:

 

How to let your mess become your success. How to stop focusing on being perfect all the time! Why to see failures as feedback and opportunities for growth. An argument for taking yourself to couples counseling! How to exercise your right to stop freaking out about exercise... What Mother Teresa, Sarah Silverman, and Simi have in common. A very important rule about birthday cake! And LOTS more.

76. Why You Wanna Give A Crap About Your Gut Health! with Robyn Youkilis.

Feb 22, 2018 01:02:34

Description:

My guest today is a gut’s best friend. And probably after listening to this you’ll want her to be your personal best friend, too. Robyn Youkilis, a health coach, a wellness expert, a TV personality (my dream) an author and a speaker who is known for her straightforward yet supportive style. And she’s known for her adorable daughter who steals the show of her social media. Robyn’s remarkably passionate about helping peeps go with their gut (that’s the name of her first book) and becoming thin from within (that’s the name of her second book).

 

GUT excited to hear:

 

A full double-confession of some stuff we stole as children! The big, inspiring body-love turning point she had right before getting pregnant. How you find your intuitive food voice. How to utilize “a morning minute” and what the heck that is. What “going with your gut” means. (Hint: it’s two-fold.) How and why to eat more fermented foods. Why chewing is chief. Why peeps even NOT struggling specifically with gut issues should give a crap about gut health. And loads more!

75. You are Not Toxic, Calm Down. (But Here's the Detox Conversation!) with Amie Valpone

Feb 15, 2018 49:10

Description:

Today’s guest knows a thing or two or twenty about struggling with her health. Over the last decade, Amie Valpone and her body have been through quite a lot (think: Lyme disease, PCOS, colitis, parasites, pathogens, Candida, Mold toxicity, Heavy metal toxicity, Hypothyroidism, Leaky gut, SIBO, chronic hormonal imbalances, edema and even more) so through it all she’s simply had to become the #1 advocate for her own health. That’s why she’s so damn passionate about helping others heal their bodies holistically, or even prevent the need for healing their bodies holistically by living holistically. She’s a health coach, a Functional Medicine Nutrition & Wellness expert and the author of the wonderful book, Eating Clean. And annoyingly enough, even though Amie and I both live in the big APPLE (Yes her website, thehealthyapple.com came from the fact that she’s healthfully living in The Big Apple) but even though we’re both here in NYC, our internet connection was weirdly..umm..terrible. So please pardon the robot sounds between Amie’s words of healthy wisdom.

 

Get ready to hear:

 

What eating clean actually means and how it relates to anti-inflammatory eating. Some of the super anti-inflammatory foods Amie’s obsessed with. The detox conversation. We had it. Want proof of the mind-body connection? Amie’s got your proof. How to get back in touch with your body. Here are real life tasks to try! A pep talk to stop stressing about organics and actually LIVE. And loads more!

74. If At First You Can’t Meditate...Breathe, Breathe, Again! with Ellie Burrows of MNDFL.

Feb 8, 2018 48:33

Description:

Todays guest is peaceful AF but not preachy AF, which is unique and awesome for a meditation expert, enthusiast and entrepreneur. Ellie Burrows is the founder of MNDFL -- a collection of meditation studios sprawled throughout NYC. Ellie grew up in La La Land and was raised in a family in the entertainment business. She decided to go into film because she thought a lot of happiness waited for her there, but she never felt fulfilled and happy in Hollywood the same way her fam did. So she literally went soul searching or as she calls it, she became a spiritual tourist, and discovered the magic and simplicity of meditation. Rather than sparknotes her entire story, I think I should stop talking now and her Ellie do that because otherwise what would be the point of listening to the episode if I tell you everything in this bio, right? So press play to hear Ellie tell her story and remind us that meditation doesn’t necessarily mean plopping your butt on a fancy cushion.

 

You’ll hear:

 

How Ellie went from a career in the film industry to now running a meditation business! What she awesomely means by “following the crumbs.” And why you prob want to follow your crumbs, too! How Ellie defines meditation and the diff between mindfulness vs. meditation. The 3 C’s to starting a meditation practice. The type of meditation that I do daily :-) How to make your meditation PORTABLE. (No butts on pillows required.) And lots more!

73. How to Strip Down Nutrition and Choose Simplicity Over Superfoods! with McKel Hill of Nutrition Stripped.

Feb 1, 2018 01:07:46

Description:

McKel Hill, a superstar dietician and the founder of the powerhouse wellness brand called Nutrition Stripped has been stripping down the complex topic of nutrition for five epic years now! In those five years, she’s written a cookbook, launched a robust society (not a secret one though), operates a thriving coaching practice, built a shop of super adorbs planty t-shirts and sexy stationary, and has brought knowledge and inspiration to millions and millions of health-seeking peeps. For someone whose senior high school superlative was to be “the Next Picasso,” she’s really been rocking the “next impressive and stylish entrepreneur female judge on Shark Tank” superlative these days, too. Here’s my chat with her about how she balances it all while keeping her body healthy and her plant eating on fleek!

 

Press play to hear:

Her never-shared-on-a-podcast-before (I’m assuming...don’t fact check me) story of how she got engaged to a dude with the same name as my engaged dude! What she says when people complain about their hubby, roomie, etc. not wanting to also eat healthfully. How she created her massive brand “Nutrition Stripped.” Why she believes that “nutrition found her.” Her food philosophy in a nutshell...which coincidentally involves nuts. How to balance balance. Why she routinely strives to be uncomfortable (and why I think that’s a key to her major success!). Why she also strives to adhere to a morning routine to be comfortable (and why she says that’s a key to HER major success!). And lots more.

72. Health at Every Size, Diet Culture & BURNING THE WAGON! with Isabel Foxen Duke.

Jan 25, 2018 53:54

Description:

My guest today is a badass and a half. By day, Isabel Foxen Duke helps women stop feeling crazy around food - specifically women who are trapped in “diet land.” And by night, she practices what she preaches, which is intuitive eating, health at every size and filtering her social media to maintain a positive body image. She also eats a lot of Burmese food, which, in case you dunno, means grub from various regions of Myanmar. I could’ve talked with Isabel for hours and hours, which is why this episode is especially long, because as you’ll hear, I needed my own crash course in diet culture with a side of fat phobia 101. I am so jazzed up about the work Isabel does and I love more than anything her tell-it-to-em-straight, no BS tude, dude! K, now grab a healthy snack, put on your suspenders and nudge those nerdy glasses up your nose because school is in session.

 

Get excited to hear:

 

How being put on a diet at age THREE affected Isabel’s relationship to food from prettttty much the very start of her life. What the deal is with “health at every size” and how it could legit change your life and your relationship with your body. Isabel’s crystal clear and helpful definition of “binge eating” which made my use of the word seem rather ridiculous. How to get started with intuitive eating! Fat phobia 101. The verrrrry finite difference between dieting and “making healthy choices.” Some practice ways you can work to improve yo’ body image. And LOADS more!

71. How to Light Your Burning Desire for Eating Plants! with Ashley Wood.

Jan 18, 2018 01:08:21

Description:

I love this episode. Partly because my guest’s story is so rich that I basically took the day off from speaking when we recorded it which was chill, but mostly because my guest’s story proves the superpowers of plants. Ashley Wood, a plant-based nutrition advocate, writer and the host of the brand new podcast, The Good People Podcast, experienced how healing plants can be when she used them (instead of using butt skin - inside joke. Which you’ll get when you get into the inside of this episode.) to miraculously heal herself from a terrible accident and again to miraculously grow a baby in her body. So sit back, sip or snack on some plants and hear this woman’s really cool story that’ll surely get you giddy about partying in your plants!

 

You’ll hear:

How walking up a foreign staircase changed Ashley’s life forever. The onion ring incident that tested and then proved the healing power of plants. Ashley’s birthing mantra which I actually want to adopt to my non-giving-birth daily life. Tips for getting your kids to actually enjoy eating healthfully! Some simple everyday recipes she thrives on, why simple is super and how you can eat more plants more simply :-) And plenty more!

70. The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*&k! with Sarah Knight.

Jan 11, 2018 59:49

Description:

Sarah Knight is many impressive things. She’s a wife, a 3 times internally best-selling author, a TEDx speaker (and her talk has been viewed over 3 million times), and she’s one of the funniest writers I’ve ever read, so it’s hopefully pretty obvious why I consider her, to be like, my idol? Sarah, whose first book, The Life Changing Magic of Not Giving a Fuck (not to be confused by The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. Very different author. Very different book. Although actually more similar than you might think. Which we talk a ton about). But anyway, Sarah’s first book blew her onto the scene and up the charts and rocked a lot of people's lives, and since then she quickly banged out two follow up books, Get Your Shit Together and You Do You, both of which continue to rock a lot of people's’ lives. In this episode, she'll rock yours, too.

 

Get ready to hear:

How to make a f*ck budget and why it’ll change your life forever. Sarah’s brilliant “Not-Sorry” Method which’ll help you be more honest, more often, more politely. The power of negative thinking. That’s right - NEGATIVE thinking! How mental decluttering and mental redecorating can help you have more body confidence. How to be good selfish :-) And so much more!

69. 18 Health Goals That Are Not Dumb!

Jan 4, 2018 23:52

Description:

Since the last digit of the date just changed, that means it's obviously time for us as humans to make a massive life change! (Duh.) Personally, I’m not a resolution-ist because I honestly set goals all year long. I just set NOT-DUMB™ goals. (It’s an acronym. And also a literary description of how goals should be.) In this episode, I define NOT-DUMB™ goals, I rant a tiny bit about goals vs. intentions and how you need both to succeed versus flying solo with one or the other, and I suggest 18 (cuz it’s now 2018, duh) 18 specific, NOT-DUMB™ party in my plants approved positive HEALTHY GOALS that you might wanna consider setting. Try some on for size. Meditate on them. Ponder one during your next sweat session. Modify them to fit your unique desires. Whatevs you wanna do, here are some of my ideas on goals.

Lani Muelrath discovered through personal experience and training that mindfulness practices are a proven method of getting beneath the surface of eating obstacles – after she had already discovered that eating plants is the way to go fo sho!! She’s written many books about plant-based eating and living, but her latest one: The Mindful Vegan - is all about how your struggles around food -- like excessive snacking, compulsive or emotional eating, battling with cravings, overeating, or other struggle shtuff can be alleviated by implementing a mindfulness practice.

Carina Wolff, known on the interwebs as Kale Me Maybe is a health and wellness journalist, food blogger and cookbook author who hails from "Kaleifornia." Womp womp.

66. How to Not Fake Smile Through Life! And at Your Wedding. With Aleisha McCormack, aka: The Bridechilla

Dec 14, 2017 01:18:04

Description:

Aleisha McCormack, known fondly as The Bridechilla, because she’s the host of the hit #1 wedding planning podcast called Bridechilla, isn’t a wedding planner, a gown designer, or a wedding caterer...she’s just a gal (well she’s an author, comedian and TV producer) with an on-point Australian accent who likes to help people be chiller brides, the same way I like to help people be chiller healthy eaters.

 

But hold on!!! Don’t skip this podcast if you already did the wedding thing (or aren’t even close to doing the wedding thing) because I promise, we talk about a heck of a lot of important stuff that’s NOT wedding related. (And between you and me, Aleisha’s whole wedding-themed podcast really is an inspiring life podcast disguised under the wedding guide. Sneaky sneaky.) A little warning here: swears are sworn during this chat so if you have little kiddos in the room or a cat or a dog or a plant whom you don’t want to hear naughty words that sound deceptively not naughty because they’re said in a cute Australian accent, you might wanna pop in those headphones, or take out those earmuffs. :-)

 

Press play to hear:

 

Our collective disdain for the “sick shit” of shedding for the wedding. How to apply the “fuck the chair covers” mentality to your everyday non-wedding planning life. To tradition or not tradition? We talk about how to decide. How weddings are a great metaphor for life. The thing that I did for my wedding that earned me “10 Goldchilla Bridechilla Points” from Aelisha! The rule of fake smiling and how to apply it to your everyday life. A little chitter chatter from one female comedian to the other. And so much more!

65. Crushing Crohn’s Disease & UnDiet-ing! with Meghan Telpner.

Dec 7, 2017 01:12:12

Description:

Today’s guest is someone I’ve admired from afar for a long time. (And by “a far” I mean across a border because she’s in Canada and I’m in America. Good thing I record my podcasts on Skype, eh?) Meghan Telpner is one of my favorite -- or favourite -- humans to follow for down to earth, no BS, fun, welcoming and bubbly nutrition info! Meghan is an an author, speaker, nutritionist, founder and director of the Academy of Culinary Nutrition, and as she says, the head cheerleader of your life! Yay rah rah kale boom bah! What really drew me to her years ago was when I saw that she published a healthy eating book called “UNDIET” -- can I get a get an amen and a shared middle finger pointed up at dieting?! So I was thrilled to pick her brain about everything UNDIETing and then some…

 

You’ll hear:

The full lowdown on ‘UNDIET’ing! Why it’s ok, natural and normal to tweak your healthy diet over time. DON’T FREAK OUT! The miraculous way that food helped Meghan crush her Crohn’s Disease symptoms. How to set your own healthy “set point” (and what the heck that means). How to decipher between actual superfoods and actual BS buzzwords. And lots more!

64. My IBS Story (Ie. That Time I Almost Pooped My Pants!) And More Personal Stuff! With Me. Questioned by The Healthy Maven.

Nov 30, 2017 01:02:21

Description:

This episode is a little backwards. Like, it’s kind of opposite day on my podcast today. And I blame Davida! It’s all her fault! And her idea! And I love it! I connected with Davida (who you might know better as The Healthy Maven, because like that’s her blog name and she has a pretty popular blog) in a pretty ballsy way: I just emailed her. I reached out after seeing on Instagram and hearing on her podcast just how she has a really inclusive, chill, welcome, honest perspective on wellness. Just like me, she’s all about doing and eating the healthy stuff in order to be able to go out there and live your best freaking life rather than doing and eating the healthy stuff in PLACE of living your life. Nah mean? (She and I also both have goldendoodles and got engaged around the same time and started our podcast around the same time so yeah, we bonded over that too.) And then we became real life friends! Like we hung out in the flesh! Which is awesome and a good life-lesson if you’re afraid to go out there and make real life friends with internet people. 

Anyhoot, instead of bring her on for a traditional podcast interview, she suggested coming on MY podcast to interview me! Ballsy on her part, right? She’s like “lemme just steal the host spot of the party in my plants podcast!” Whatever, it worked, we did it. And this is the episode.

You’ll hear:

My really never-before told story of my struggle with IBS. (Complete with a near poop-in-pants-incident and all!) How “OWNING IT” is the way to be able to eat your plants and party, too! WHY I eat and promote plants. Like for real. Getting deep now. How I work backwards from my big future dreams to figure out what to do now. And more!

63. Healthy Holiday Self-Care: How Prioritizing “I” Can Mean Less Pie! A re-broadcast with Jamie Mendell

Nov 23, 2017 34:24

Description:

I wanted to bring this year-old episode back to life… give it a new opportunity to hit your ears and sink into your head and heart because it contains incredibly valuable little golden nuggets for navigating the holidays with your sanity and jean buttons in tact. This is a chat with Jamie Mendell, who is a self-care lifestyle coach that’s in love with showing people how to lovingly care for themselves. After struggling with her own food problems for 10+ years, Jamie Mandell had a mind-blowing and binge stopping and weight-dropping revelation….that it wasn’t actually a food problem or a need-more-willpower struggle that she had, but rather: a self-care deficiency. Which is a term that I officially coined. I loved talking to Jamie about how we can slip more self-care into the holiday shuffle because if ever is a time that we have food struggles, it’s during the holidays. And thus, if ever is a time to hear this episode, it’s now.

 

Get ready to hear:

why Jamie is so passionate about teaching self-care how a self care deficiency could potentially be a cause of holding extra weight the 411 about the 4 components of self care: mental, emotional, physical, soulful how to have more confidence in an instant a step-by-step self-care regimen for a holiday and lots more!

62. She’s One Part Plant. Our Chat About Plants is One Hundred Parts Awesome! with Jessica Murnane

Nov 16, 2017 47:51

Description:

My guest today is my sister from another mister, a woman with another catchy business name that has the word plant in it, a wearer of the coolest hats ever, literally and also figuratively because she wears super stylish hats on her head but also wears the hat of podcast host, second podcast host (she has 2 podcasts), cookbook author, mom, wife, stage 4 endometriosis thriver, and proudly: my friend. Ok, you know I’m talking about Jessica Murnane, don’t you? If you don’t already know Jessica’s work, or vegan, gluten free chocolate chip cookies, you’re probs about to fall in love with her - and them. I should probably tell you actual biography stuff. Ok, Jessica is the founder of one part plant, a movement dedicated to helping peeps not party in their plants..that’s my thing, but eat one plant-based meal a day. Equally as cool. She’s the host of the One Part Podcast, The Cookbook Deal Podcast and she’s the author of the must-have plant-cookbook, called - you guessed it, One Part Plant. Alright, well Jessica might be one part plant, but our chat about plants is one hundred parts awesome!

You’ll hear:

How eating plants helped her stabilize her crippling Stage IV endometriosis.

The final unhealthy food she held onto in her diet for dear life! The first plant-based food she ate that she was VERY proud of (which is hilarious). Why we should talk more about how hard healthy diet change is! Which book, written by a former podcast guest, hands-down changed Jessica’s life. What it’s like raising a plant-based little person! (A child.) Her favorite recipe from the book right this second (and the one that gets the most fan mail). And plenty more!

58. Mushrooms: More than An Ugly Pizza Topping, More like MAGIC! with Four Sigmatic Founder, Tero Isokauppila

Oct 19, 2017 47:30

Description:

Today’s guest is one of the chosen ones. Way before he was born, 13 generations before he was born, in fact, his destiny was set: he was chosen to be FUN-GUY that helps take medicinal mushrooms mainstream. And that’s just what Tero Isokauppila, the founder of the popular mushroom company, Four Sigmatic, has done. Deliciously, I might add. If you follow me on Instagram you’ve surely seen my fondness for the shroom, but in this chat you’ll hear about the functionality of the shroom. And the science behind it. And the way that Tero and his team at Four Sigmatic actually makes mushroom teas that don’t MAKE you gag and actually MAKE you feel like a better, stronger, well-er version of yourself. And why, even though they won’t make you hallucinate, Tero considers mushrooms *MAGIC.*

 

Get ready to hear:

 

How, for Tero, mushrooms are basically ninja turtles. What an ADAPTOGEN really is. (And FYI, it’s REALLY cool.) Why mushrooms are really really good for you. And which ones you might wanna start with. The real reason I crave mushrooms so hard since I’ve started drinking them. (And no it’s not because I’m “addicted.”) Even though they won’t make you hallucinate, Tero considers mushrooms *MAGIC.* This is why. How Four Sigmatic actually makes mushroom tea that doesn’t make you gag. And much more!

57. Is Self-Love Do-Able? This Episode’s Hypothesis is YES! with Shannon Kaiser

Oct 12, 2017 52:49

Description:

My awesome buddy ‘ol pal ‘ol international speaker, coach and bestselling author Shannon Kaiser is back today talking about something as deep as it gets -- self love. This is not just a woowoo buzzword, my friend, it’s actually something that’s really really important. I was stoked to sit down with Shannon to chat about her fourth book, The Self Love Experiment, the book that makes her all glowy when she talks about it! And for good reason - it’s all about discovering self love. Why the self-love experiment? Instead of the self-love project or self-love journey or self-love principles? Well you’ll have to listen to find out. Cliffhanger. Also a cliffhanger, is self-love actually achievable for US ALL? …… (Spoiler: yes, duh, that’s what this is all about!)

 

Press play to hear:

 

What a self-love experiment is and how you can do one! No beakers involved! The shocking percentage of people who hate something about themselves, and how you can work on lowering that percentage. How you can actually lose weight while still loving your body. My wildly honest and probably very relatable leg insecurity story. How to get back to self-love when you feel the opposite. And so much awesome-ness more!

56. Sweet Potatoes for the WIN! And the Mouth. And Soul. with Jenne Claiborne.

Oct 5, 2017 01:08:24

Description:

Today’s guest is an expert in sweet potatoes. She’s also an enthusiast of them. She’s also a spokesperson for them! Jenné Claiborne, the creator of sweetpotatosoul.com is a vegan chef, YouTuber, blogger and author of the upcoming (or already published! If you’re listening to this after February 2018) cookbook: Sweet Potato Soul. I wonder how they came up with that title. What’s amazing and admirable about Jenné (well, many things are) but one thing is that she came to plant-based eating (or really veganism, as you’ll hear she prefers to call it) for animal rights reasons and THEN miraculously reaped the health and happiness effects. My experience has been the exact opposite, and it was pretty cool to chat with an ethical vegan who doesn’t want to rip my head off when we talk about that! I also admire Jenné’s pure love for the bean. And of course we talk about ways to prevent the dreaded bean toot….yes, it’s quite a hoot.

What Buddha Bowls are, how to make one and why you should even care! Some reasons why plants are wayyy better for the environment than meat. Smart, easy ways for plant-eaters to get their protein! (And cook it.) (And also, not care so much about it.) What it means when you can’t eat beans. (And how to stop the tooting!) Jenné’s epic road trip and how she stayed healthy (and vegan) during it! And so much more!

55. Holler! Here's the Answer to The Question: WHAT IS COLLAGEN?!

Sep 28, 2017 26:08

Description:

Today is a quickie episode to answer to a biggie question: WHAT. IS. COLLAGEN?! Like seriously, what IS IT? Surely if you’ve spent a couple minutes on Instagram you’ve seen loads of peeps dumping this power called collagen in their smoothies, or maybe you’ve had someone recommend it to you. I’ll bet you smiled and nodded, or liked the instagram post and scrolled wondering silently, “WHAT IS COLLAGEN?!” I’m not saying this question was like eating you up inside, you know, I hardly doubt you were losing sleep over not knowing about collagen, but I do think you’ll feel pretty powerful after hearing the answer. Ok - maybe not powerful, but it’s always good to know things. That’s why I brought on a collagen spokesperson (a PR manager for Vital Proteins, the groundbreaking and mega popular collagen company) to share the scoop on what’s in their scoop! Whether you decide to try collagen after this or you decide to skip this bandwagon hopping for now, we can all agree on one thing: if you’re at trivia and the question WHAT IS COLLAGEN? comes up, you are good to go! You’re welcome.

54. How to Eat Clean In Your Cubicle! with Tracie Kendziora

Sep 21, 2017 01:05:40

Description:

Full disclosure: my longest experience with working in a true office place has been through watching well…The Office. A few times though. So that’s kind of a long time. But that’s not IRL. Which is why I wanted to bring on today’s guest who is an expert in eating plants in a pantsuit! Or in whatever else you wear to an office. Tracie Kendziora is a health coach whose bread and vegan butter is helping peeps eat cleaner in their cubicle. After working in an office (a real one, with real cubicles) for a decade and maintaining a plant-party diet for the majority of it, Tracie knows a thing or two about how balancing work with wellness - and not making clean eating a second full-time job. I don’t say this often but stay tuned through the end of the episode to hear a cool surprise!! And no, don’t just fast forward to the end for the surprise - that’s lame. You’re cooler than that.

You’ll hear:

The most important thing to NOT do before a meeting. ACTUALLY why your coworkers make you feel guilty about your salad. Awesome items to keep in your healthy desk drawer. Really clever ways to move more at work! One of which I implemented immediately… Mason jar salads 101. And loads more!

53. Life is Short AF. How an Engagement and Cancer Taught Me That.

Sep 14, 2017 40:20

Description:

This episode took me 2 months and like 20 attempts to complete. There’s nothing really funny about this episode, it’s more like a chapter from a Nicholas Sparks book with a dash of a Tony Robbins seminar and a sprinkle of the trailer of the movie Serendipity. That made absolutely no sense but really, life doesn’t make much sense, and that’s actually what this episode is about. How good people die. How even sick people stubbornly stick to their ways. How ‘waiting till you’re ready’ is both mature and wise but also foolish and wrong. Here’s my [hopefully inspiring] story of how I got engaged while cancer stole the life of my fiancé’s mother.

52. No More Willy Nilly - How to Intentionally Eat! with Cassandra Bodzak

Sep 7, 2017 01:03:10

Description:

Today’s guest is really a spokesperson for our insides. A publicist for what our unique bodies really want to thrive. A walking billboard for the magic that is meditation. Cassandra Bodzak, the author of Eat With Intention, a health coach, and a global meditation teacher is just bursting with passion for helping peeps create their “next level” lives utilizing the ‘FOOD, MEDITATION AND SELF CARE trifecta’...or triangle, as you’ll soon hear about. I’d seen Cassandra on the interwebs for a long time but it wasn’t until I met her at The Good Fest where she led an epic meditation (during which I snuck on stage when everyone’s eyes were closed to snag some killer pics for her!), that I got to witness first hand just how happy, confident and truly grounded she is. This is all to say that this chica thoroughly practices what she preaches, so listen to all she preaches in this jam-packed chat and then start practicing and I can guarantee you’ll feel more happy, confident and grounded, too!

 

Get amped to hear:

What actually IS eating with intention? And how it can help you. Our embarrassing first AIM screen names. Proof that Cassandra’s philosophy: “eff it, just do it, don’t wait for it to be perfect” works! An easy way to love your body more...in the shower. How to get started with meditation (and how it’s like food!). What your food cravings really mean. And tons more!

Aug 31, 2017 53:37

Description:

Alyssa Ramos probably has more stamps in her passport than I have, I dunno, I’ve been sitting here for 5 minutes thinking of a good joke and got nothing. Suffice it to say that Alyssa Ramos, travel blogger at My life’s a movie, who’s been traveling the world non-stop for 3 years now, has a lot of stamps in her passport. Just one peek at the photos on Alyssa’s instagram account, and you’ll instantly get a bad case of the travel bug, because she just posts photo after photo of herself in one beautiful place after the next beautiful place. Oh and she uses a selfie stick for said photos. Because she travels the world completely solo like a badass girlboss unicorn mermaid girl POWER. Here’s our hack-fill chat in which we discuss flight hacking, jet lag hacking, exercise hacking, selfie hacking and my favorite: packing hacking!

 

Press play and you’ll hear:

Sahara Rose discovered (well, kind of re-discovered) Ayurveda when she wasn’t feeling all that great and used its tools and principles to help her feel better than great! Now she’s on an awesome mission to help make Ayurveda mainstream, starting with this here podcast episode - cuz let’s be real, The Party in mY plants podcast is as mainstream as it gets, yo.

49. Skin, Plants, Dogs, Instagram, Morals, Ethics and Beards! with Frank & Whit Founder Chris Cieri

Aug 17, 2017 52:17

Description:

Today’s guest is a gem. He’s just a gem. And I’ve really never used that phrase before but I couldn’t think of any better way to introduce Chris Cieri, the founder of Franklin and Whitman, the instagram-famous plant-based, paraben and cruelty free skin care company you might already be familiar with. You know that song: “started from the bottom now we here?” Well Chris’ version might as well be “started with a beard now we here” because that’s really the story of how his passion-project-turned-second-job exploded onto the natural skin care scene. Just like Chris is blown away by the response to his handmade products, I was blown away by this conversation because we go WAY more than skin deep. Haha I love puns. We talk about morals and ethics and life and death and dogs and instagram and serums and dry shampoo and everything in between.

 

You’ll hear:

Why is Franklin and Whitman is even called Franklin and Whitman (or “Frank and Whit” for short). The guiding principles/brand promises that Frank and Whit lives by. What the heck parabens are! The shocking way Chris learned to make all his skin care products. The product he’s most proud of creating. And so much more!

48. Weight Loss = Plants + Thoughts. with Osha Key

Aug 10, 2017 55:56

Description:

Osha Key is passionate and skilled at helping women eat more plants to weigh less pounds. She’s a certified nutritionist and health coach and the founder of the Lovetarian diet, which contrary to what I thought, means more than just eating heart-shaped cookies. Now, full disclosure: I don’t weigh myself nor at all suggest that you do - in fact I’d discourage you from stepping on a scale or evening owning one, and in this positive body love society that we’re becoming (which, snaps for that I mean right?!), I feel like it’s become a little taboo to talk about weight loss, but honestly, I just believe that it’s totally a thing to both love your body AND take healthy steps to help it fit into cute pants more comfortably. And that whole healthy steps thing is exactly what Osha believes in - and believe it or not, the first step she suggests for weight loss is actually in your MIND, not in your meal.

 

Get ready to hear:

 

Three key components to healthfully losing some lbs. How your biggest transformation can result from changing this ONE thing! A life-shifting mantra/intention you can adopt to be your own.   How to not rely on “willpower” to make healthy choices. The best plants to eat for weight loss. And loads more!

47. A Deep Dive with a Daredevil! (Like a real, professional one.) with Jonathan Goodwin

Aug 3, 2017 58:36

Description:

I met today’s guest on the subway! Jonathan Goodwin was fiddling with some handcuffs and I asked him what he was doing, learned he was a professional daredevil stunt performer who's done everything from hanging from a building with just 2 fingers to flipping cars to getting attacked by a shark - PURPOSELY - to hanging to a burning rope just by his teeth on one of my favorite shows -- America’s Got Talent. I just KNEW he had to come on the show to share his perspective on mental toughness, focus and discipline! Ok, all that is true except we didn’t meet on the subway. The subway would actually be more believable than how we actually met. We ACTUALLY met on stage at The Palace Theater on Broadway in New York, in front of 1800 people, when Jonathan randomly pulled out of the audience and onto the stage to perform a stunt. And by “stunt” I mean I had to hold a flower horizontally by my teeth (which, btw is WAY harder than it might seem - you try!) and Jonathan, blindfolded, used a whip to chop that flower in half. Without chopping me in half, too. Needless to say, he and I would not be talking today if I had any scars to prove this, BUT I do have a video to prove this which you can watch at www.partyinmyplants.com/47!

 

You’ll learn:

 

How Jonathan overcomes his fears (yes, he does stunts but he isn’t fearless, you know!) Why and how to use “chunking” to help you feel less overwhelmed at really anything. The difference between practice, rehearsal and performance. How HYPNOSIS has helped him tremendously! The surprising equipment that helps him stay RIPPED. The healthy food he considers his “filler-uppers” which I consider “brilliant!” And loads more!

46. Hear How Hip and Holy S*!T Hypnosis Is! with Grace Smith

Jul 27, 2017 01:05:36

Description:

Grace Smith, today’s guest, is one of the most experienced hypnotherapists on the planet! It’s true! And it’s true that Grace is on a mission to make hypnosis mainstream. Which is the opposite of mission impossible, because Grace is VERY successfully doing just that. I really don’t need to even introduce her to you because she tells her own story perfectly, but I should prepare you for all the literal “ohhs and ahhs” that come out of my mouth during this chat AND I should prepare you that after listening to this, you’ll have a level of excitement about hypnosis you never thought possible. Which won’t happen because Grace brainwashed you...but rather because I did. Just kidding….

 

You’ll hear:

How Hollywood and stage shows have completely misrepresented hypnosis -- and what it ACTUALLY is. Why you can’t just hypnotize your husband to do whatever you want him to do. (Bummer.) The ‘you have to hear it to believe it’ story of how Grace used hypnosis to save her father- in-law.   The difference between self-hypnosis vs. hypnosis with a therapist AND the difference between hypnosis vs. meditation. The scientifically proven reason hypnosis can work on you EVEN if you think it’s total woowoo BS. And so so so much more!!!

45. How You’re Making Healthy Eating Way Harder Than it Needs To Be! (No Offense.)

Jul 20, 2017 15:57

Description:

As a person whose job (and passion) it is to help others eat healthier, I’m routinely reminded of all the stuff that makes healthy eating hard. And I feel you -- happy hours with friends, donut day in the office and cohabiting with kale haters doesn’t help the fruits and veggies fly effortlessly into your mouth. But no matter what, I don’t believe you’re destined for a life where your struggle to eat healthfully will always be REAL. There might actually be things that you’re doing to make this whole eating clean thing way harder than it needs to be! If any of these eight habits ring true to you, drop that habit like it’s hot and watch more plants practically soar onto your plate.

44. Plants as Medicine. Literally. with David Johnson, CEO of Genexa

Jul 6, 2017 29:14

Description:

My guest today, along with a team of smarty pantses, worked his buns off to create a healthier medicine. David Johnson, the CEO of Genexa, the world's first USDA certified organic & Non-GMO Project Verified medicine, is on a mission to help our bodies feel better as naturally as possible. Using the proven technologies of PLANTS, my besties! and building on the century old healing system called Homeopathy, the medicine David worked to create is nothing short of groundbreaking. But it wasn’t a piece of organic gluten-free cake to build this company, and David is here to tell us the full story, as well as help us understand how the heck the adjective organic can actually be used with the noun: medicine. So now let’s verb: GO!

 

You’ll hear:

 

- The whole idea behind Genexa and why David worked so hard to create it!

- What the heck homeopathic medicine is.

- Some powerful plants that are actually medicines.

- How it’s possible that a medicine actually has no side effects.

- Why “big pharma” puts borderline dangerous, definitely unhealthy crap in meds that are totally unnecessary.

- And lots more!

IN THE NAME OF TEA … AND SIP IT MINDFULLY….

I like that. I like that a lot. And I like that Andy sat down with me for MANY mindful moments and explained the ins and outs, befores and afters, and hots and colds of tea! Yipee!!

Jun 22, 2017 01:05:50

Description:

Today’s guest comes from one of my favorite non-food spots in NYC: Hey Day, an amazing facial shop! I popped my facial cherry at Hey Day over a year ago and not to be dramatic, but it’s been transformative. I had no idea how much I’d enjoy being scrubbed and polished and getting the crap literally squeezed out of my pores, and I never could have predicted how much I’d learn about taking care of my skin. If you’ve never been to Hey Day, or gotten a facial, you should wash that fact away ASAP! But until then, enjoy this surprisingly delightful and terrifically informative chat with Jeni Sykes, the incredibly well-spoken co-founder and head of skincare at Hey Day and definitely get ready for some of the most tangible info that’s ever popped out of an episode.

Jun 15, 2017 01:04:17

Description:

Sarah Adler really makes healthy eating seem really simple. Which is really good. Because her business is called “Simply Real Health.” Sarah’s a real food lover to the core, and she’s really passionate about helping others love and eat real food with ease. She’s a rockstar nutrition coach, author of a beautiful cookbook (which I really did end up buying after this interview!) and just a really lovely, inspiring, real human being. I’m really happy I got to sit down with a person whose every Instagram post makes me smile (and crave something plant-y) (and kind of want to up and move to Seattle). I’m also really proud of myself for achieving my goal of using a form of the word “real” in every sentence of this introduction.

 

Get pumped to hear:

 

Why Sarah loves living in the land of grey. The huge Italian awakening moment she had that rocked her world!

40. Elephant in the Room: MAKING FRIENDS IS HARD. The Founders of Soul Camp Make it Easier.

Jun 8, 2017 53:13

Description:

My guests today -- yep, there are two of ‘em! -- are the fabulous founders of Soul Camp, a wellness sleepaway and day camp for adults that takes place on both coasts. Aside from satisfying their ‘smores cravings and learning how to read tarot cards, Soul Campers walk away from camp with a new friend or two, which I know you know is really hard to do. (Making new friends, that is.) So as two women who’ve masterfully created a breakthrough environment in which to do that -- which I can vouch for since I was a Soul Camp counselor in 2015! -- and who themselves have formed many true adult friendships, I knew of no people better to come on the podcast and address the elephant in the room: that making friends as a health-minded adult is hella-hard! And of course, we go into some super ways to make that hella-easier.

 

You’ll hear:

 

Scientific proof that having friends is essential to our longevity. The #1 thing you MUST have to make new friends! Tips for making new friends using social media. Literally where to physically GO to find new friends! Why and how the groundbreaking adult camp, Soul Camp, was created. And plenty more!

39. I’m a Proud Quitter! Here’s Why. (And Here’s How.)

Jun 5, 2017 22:57

Description:

Since I’ve been old enough to make my own decisions I’ve quit a whole bunch of things. And some big stuff, too. I mean, a sport that I’d played religiously for over 10 years, jobs, friends, fears, BEER!! But I’m a proud quitter. A strategic quitter. A HEALTHY quitter, in my opinion. And since wrapping the word “QUITTING” in a positive-connotation bow is a rarity, I figured I’d chat with you about MY art and science to strategic, positive quitting so maybe you can feel less lousy about finally giving up that thing you wanna give up, or carry less guilt about quitting so and so way back when (or yesterday).

38. How to Build a Nut Butter Empire...in a Nutshell. with Erika Welsh of Wild Friends Foods

Jun 1, 2017 01:06:41

Description:

Take a stroll through your grocery store’s nut butter section. There’s a very good chance some bright colored jars with a big squirrel and the words “Wild Friends” on the label will catch your eye, draw you in and make you smile. It’s true! And how it’s actually possible for nut and seed butter to make us smile? And also taste insanely good? Well that’s what I wanted to investigate. So I got to sit down with the co-founder of Wild Friends Foods, Erika Welsh, and talk about how her peanut, almond, cashew and sunflower butters are changing the bread spread game as we know it. Turns out, there’s not some manipulative mastermind marketing strategy behind Wild Friends, instead, there’s a BUTT ton of passion.

 

Get ready to hear:

37. Healthy Hedonism, Hashimoto’s and Haha’s! with Phoebe Lapine

May 25, 2017 01:18:58

Description:

You know how adopting all the healthy habits that we’re told to adopt can be incredibly overwhelming, stressful, confusing & social-life destroying? Well, today’s guest totally knows that. Or knew that. Which is why she completely ignored her doctor when they diagnosed her with an autoimmune disease in her early twenties. Flash forward to not so long ago, and Phoebe Lapine’s body and skin weren’t going to let her ignore her diagnosis any longer. She needed to do healthy stuff, STAT. But instead of just uphauling her entire life in one fell swoop, Phoebe, who was already a cookbook author, chef, culinary instructor, speaker, and blogger at FeedMePhoebe.com, decided to take a full year implementing one healthy habit at a time, so she could see which ones were really worth the hype...and the sacrifice. Thankfully, Phoebe didn’t keep her health experiment all to herself: she chronicled it in her new terrific book called The Wellness Project AND lucky for us, she deep dives into her wellness odyssey in this podcast episode!

 

You’ll hear:

 

The truthful last straw that pushed Phoebe to actually take her health seriously. The #1 habit out of all 12 habits she experimented with that’s her MVP. The FRIENDS episode in which this Phoebe’s life story literally gets portrayed by Phoebe Buffay! The smartest hack for cutting back on alcohol that I’ve ever heard. How to be a healthy hedonist (and wtf that actually means). A really easy daily habit for loving your gut. And so so so much more!

36. The Secret to Being a Happy Yogi Being a BAD YOGI! with Erin Motz

May 18, 2017 48:14

Description:

Today’s guest is a new kind of badass, she’s a BAD YOGI, with a nice ass probably because she does lots of yoga. Erin Motz of Badyogiofficial.com just reeks authenticity the same way that your sweaty yoga pants, well, just reek. The thing is, Erin’s loud and proud about not being a traditional yogi -- and she works long and hard to create a community where non-Sanskrit speaking, wine-loving, raggedy yoga-pants wearing yogis can UNITE! To date, with her brand, Bad Yogi, Erin has helped over 100,000 down-doggers proudly celebrate the fact that they’re bad yogis and she is essentially, redefining yoga culture. Kinda like how AirBnb redefined travel lodging. Except those are two completely different things so nevermind.

Get ready to hear:

The benefits of being a bad yogi. How to stop feeling so competitive in yoga classes! The honest correlation between yoga and weight. The answer to the question: is yoga supposed to be hard? The actual end goal of yoga. And plenty more!

35. Buzzwords, Shmuzzwords - How to Actually Grocery Shop! with Maria Marlowe

May 11, 2017 50:14

Description:

If you’ve ever gotten lost in the grocery store you’ll be happy you found this episode. Because my guest Maria Marlowe is a grocery store guru...if that’s a thing. I mean, she has a whole 260+ page book on how to buy real food at the grocery store, so I assume that makes her a grocery store guru! Last time Maria was on the show, she spoke about how our food affects our face, and stressed the importance of eating clean shiz to clean up your skin. Well that’s all well and good, except if you don’t know how to purchase clean shiz to eat, you and your skin and your gut and your SELF are shiz out of luck. But no more do you have to feel like a foreign tourist in the grocery store or get home and try to spiralize a cucumber that you bought instead of a zucchini, because Maria dropped some knowledge bombs on how to be the bomb dot com at grocery shopping!

 

You’ll hear:

What inspired Maria to write a guide to the grocery store. The biggest areas of confusion people experience in the grocery store. What term you should look for when buying fish. How to make healthy eating cheap! Maria’s earth-shattering advice for storing avocados longer. And loads more!

34. Jean George’s Favorite Plant-Chef Tells All! with Neal Harden, Chef of ABCV

May 4, 2017 47:56

Description:

Neal Harden knows his way around plants. He knows how to dice ‘em, slice ‘em, present ‘em and combine ‘em in ways that makes them taste better than they’ve probably ever tasted before. Neal, the chef de cuisine of ABCV, a plant-based mecca and the third installment of the Jean George run ABC restaurants, is nothing short of a plant-whisperer. From breakfast to dinner he’s non-stop pumping out some of the most innovative and palate-pleasing ways to eat plants. It really takes some sort of plant guru to serve a simple plate of sauerkraut to rave reviews and accolades such as  “groundbreaking.” JUST SAUERKRAUT. That you eat with a fork. In our chat, which he kindly recorded at ABCV during some down time, if such a thing exists in a booked out for months restaurant, Neal humbly gives us a backstage view of what it’s like to run and execute a world-class plant-based restaurant. Although he isn’t able to give us all reservations...even to breakfast.

 

You’ll Hear:

 

The top-chef-like cooking audition Neal had with Jean George. What it’s like cooking for celebs, food critics and top chefs! How, for Neal, good food = caring. The difference between cooking in a restaurant and cooking at home. The surprising (to Neal) top selling dish at ABCV. And so much more!

Apr 27, 2017 01:27:34

Description:

Adina Grigore is the found of SWBasics - a no-BS, truly natural skincare line that’s radically changing skin care for the way better. Adina is one of the coolest peeps I’ve ever spoken to which will be obvious as you listen, but aside from being cool and funny and authentic AF, Adina is a freaking skin genius … and a rebel! Her first book, Skin Cleanse, turned the world on its head when it revealed the truth: that to get clear, happy skin, the more simple, the more better. (And the more plants the more better, too.) Her second book which recently came out, Just the Essentials, proves how plants oils are skin heros and teaches exactly how to use them to make your skin glow like woah. I’d say get a pen and paper out to take notes because there’s such great info in this episode, but I already did that for you on partyinmyplants.com/32! You’re welcome! And thanks for listening!

Get pumped to hear:

My own shameful DIY hair product experience :-(. The #1 cause of bad skin, according to Adina. The top foods for great skin, also according to Adina. How to make food journaling not totally suck. Adina’s refreshing thoughts on my biggest insecurity: CELLULITE. Why Adina calls essential oils “plant-based powerhouses” and how she came to love ‘em! Her top 10 beginner essential oils.

My awesome guest today, Erin Willett, is an alumnus and semi-finalist of both The Voice AND The Biggest Loser, making her one of the coolest and most courageous females around - with kickass vocals AND kickass boxing skills to boot. Despite losing 87 pounds in one of the weirdest environments (The Biggest Loser ranch) Erin has an incredibly grounded, inspiring approach to weight loss and overall health.

Mar 30, 2017 13:25

Description:

It all started when I posted a photo of truffle french fries in one hand and couple of digestive enzymes in the other.

So in this episode, I roll out all the information I believe you need to know to determine whether or not digestive enzymes are right for you! I also roll with a great comparison between digestive enzymes...and spanx.

If anyone knows about running, it’s today’s guest: Angela Smith of runlikekale.com. She also knows about plants. And puns.

Mar 16, 2017 24:27

Description:

I totally understand that it might not be your instinct to buy a ton of kitchen gadgets. You might be reluctant to trade your time for money and then trade that money for some unnecessary kitchen tools. Especially after you got that completely unnecessary banana peeler. I get it.

So in this episode, I share the top kitchen tools that, in my plant-party experience, are MUST HAVE’s if YOU want to have healthy meals easily coming out of your kitchen and into your mouth!

19. How to Trust Your Gut & Get Wut You Want! with Shannon Kaiser

Jan 26, 2017 39:31

Description:

Today’s guest is a pro at helping people get everything they want in life. But that’s not to say that my friend, coach and best-selling author, Shannon Kaiser, who Mindbodygreen called a ‘Happiness Guru’ has magical powers, because getting what we want actually comes from listening to our own guts. So call her… a gut whisperer? And today, she’s whispering her best concepts for seriously getting what we want in life. I can vouch for Shannon’s magic-esque concepts since I was privately working with her when I got something I wanted: my own segment on The Doctor Oz Show! Listen up, because it’s literally gut check time.

 

You’ll hear:

How exactly to trust your gut! Like what your gut’s voice ACTUALLY sounds like...and doesn’t sound like. Shannon’s alternative definition of meditation (hint: your eyes don’t need to be closed!). How my unwavering belief in one of Shannon’s key concepts brought me a humungo achievement in my life. How NOT believing one of Shannon’s key concepts BLOCKS me from humungo accomplishments in my life. Tangible steps for getting shiz you want. The role that JOY plays in getting what we want. And so much more!!

17. What the FORK to Eat! with Stefanie Sacks

Jan 12, 2017 47:39

Description:

With so much conflicting information out there, we can all benefit from having an outspokenly passionate culinary nutritionist like Stefanie Sacks explain, seriously, what the FORK to eat. Fortunately, this is what today’s guest is obsessed with doing, which is why she wrote the no-BS book: What The Fork Are You Eating? An Action Plan for Your Pantry and Plate, which literally takes you ingredient by ingredient, aisle by aisle, sketchy fact by sketchy fact and leads you to make smarter, healthier choices, which she’s a firm believer are what add up to a totally healthy life!

 

You’ll hear:

How red gatorade was the inciting incident for her book! Stefanie’s #1 starting point of ingredients to avoid for better health. How parents can create boundaries for their kids’ unhealthy foods. (And how my boyfriend does the same for himself!) That time Jimmy Kimmel proved how gullible people are when it comes to “healthy food!” And so much more!

Jan 5, 2017 36:16

Description:

It’s easy to admire people’s “after” photos and think their journey from “before” to there was a sinch. But my guest today is here to share what really goes on in the “in between.” And spoiler: it involves being disciplined like woah. My childhood friend, Gabriel Colby, is arguably the most disciplined dude I know, and in this episode I pull out all the dirty little discipline tricks he’s used to go from chubby to chiseled, become a world-class musician and professional juggler (of fire and knives!). Like your morning routine, this is NOT an episode you want to skip.

 

You’ll hear:

The drastic difference between discipline and motivation! That time Gabe almost burned down his house. (Literally) Gabe’s DUH way to figure out your soulmate exercise. The shockingly simple way Gabe sticks to big goals. And so much more!

11. Acupuncture: What’s the Point?! with James Rohr

Dec 15, 2016 50:15

Description:

If you’ve never tried it, acupuncture might freak you the heck out. But once you do try it, you’ll understand why it’s the greatest healing modality on earth. I’ve been getting acupuncture treatments for over 10 years and I can’t speak highly enough about them needles in my meridians! But I also can’t really speak on how exactly them needles work, so I brought in my personal acupuncturist, James Rohr, who also happens to run two acupuncture practices, is an author, a top acupuncturist to celebrities and is the kindest, funniest, most non-woo-woo healer. This conversation with James is anything but sterile (like lame), although the needles he uses to make people feel their best are always sterile.

You’ll hear:

Exactly what the eff acupuncture is! How this magic-like treatment ACTUALLY works. The #1 common ailment James treats that can alleviate so many other ailments. Ways you can avoid a bogus acupuncturist. That time James left a needle in someone… That other time James’ acupuncture treatment knocked a woman up… And so much more!

7. How to Eat Clean! with the Clean Eating Queen:Terry Walters

Dec 1, 2016 59:48

Description:

Terry Walters was one of the earliest “clean eaters.” Her first book, “Clean Food” came out way before “clean” related to food in any way other than sanitary! But “clean eating” has since turned into a vague, trendy, catch-all phrase, right? Not anymore. In this episode, we lay down the law about what clean eating REALLY is (and really isn’t), so you don’t have to keep hearing stuff from the organic grapevine. Oh, and spoiler alert: clean eating is pretty much the same as plant-partying!

 

Get excited to learn:

What eating clean REALLY means to Terry (and how, like in the game of telephone, “clean eating” can be misinterpreted). The difference between being rigid with your healthy diet vs. having a tight grip on it. Why you need fermented foods in your life, like YESTERDAY! How pizza and hot sauce can actually be part of your “clean” diet. Why eating in season is a serious no-brainer. And so much more!
