Episode 191 transcription Cassy Joy: Today’s show is brought to you by the Fed and Fit Team! We wanted to tell you about our brand new book; Cook Once, Eat all Week. This book is hitting shelves April 23 of this year, and is finally an answer to the big, hairy, meal prep riddle. We are solving two really big problems with this book. Number one, we have found a way to save you loads of time on meal prep. And number two; this concept is designed to save you a lot of money on your groceries, while still getting a fresh, delicious, healthy dinner on the table. The concept is simple; we take big batch protein; veggies, a big thing of veggies, and another either second veggie or a starch, and prepare them on what is considered your prep day. Minimal time in the kitchen. Then we walk you through how to assemble the prepared and/or cooked components into three different, delicious, fresh meals. We include shopping lists, detailed prep day instructions, macros for those who need them. We have egg-free, dairy-free, nut-free, gluten-free, all the frees considerations. And we wrote every single recipe in the book to be as family friendly as possible. This book includes 26 weeks’ worth of meal-prep; that’s half a year. A handful of other especially fast dinner ideas. And an extensive outline for storage and reheating best practices. Tens of thousands of people followed along; many of you are listening! Followed along when we released the Cook Once, Eat all Week blog series last year. And we are so thrilled to bring you even more of this life-changing meal prep approach. Cook Once, Eat All Week is available for preorder right now on Amazon. Thank you so much for your support, and for sharing this concept with your friends and family. So many of you talked about it on social media, talked about it in your stories. Told your friends to go preorder the book. It just means the world to us. And it really actually makes a difference in the fate of this book. So thank you so much for your support. Thank you for ordering it, preordering it, and getting excited. It’s going to be out so soon! You can catch al ink to the preorder in the show notes, or you can just head on over to Amazon and type in Cook Once, Eat all Week.

And I excited about today’s episode, because we are going to tackle a very popular topic. {laughs} It’s popular, but we’re all secretly interested in it. It’s not necessarily something that we want to broadcast and share with the world. So instead, I’m going to broadcast it and share it with the world {laughs} so you can maybe get some tips for something that I feel like might be very relatable for so, so many of us. Today we’re going to talk about how to recover from a binge. And let’s define that, because I’m not necessarily talking about; I guess it could relate to just about any binge. Minus the scary dangerous ones {laughing}. Talking about food binges, maybe a weekend and you went out with your girlfriends and you had way more wine than you normally have. Or cocktails and desserts. Everything was on your plate. There are a couple of things at play here. If you are in the middle of a reset, or in the middle of some sort of dietary or wellness challenge, then you might feel like you just messed up. Because you're probably not feeling well, and that willpower muscle that you were working on building these last several days or weeks or however long you’ve been in the challenge, you kind of start to feel like; oh my goodness! Did I just go backwards in all the progress I had made? So you have this mental battle of guilt, and wondering; how much damage did I just do that I’m going to have to try to undo? Am I going to have to go through that whole thing again? Am I going to have to go and work from the beginning all over again just to get back to where I was? Those are the things that rattle around in our heads. And I’m saying this because I’ve been there, y’all. I have been there. I’ve gotten to the point where; maybe it was a special occasion. Maybe it was a wedding. And I said; oh, it’s a wedding. I’m just going to go ahead and have the cake and the; what’s, beef wellington is a really good example. Beef wellington is one of those dishes; it’s beef wrapped in all kinds of yummy things, but also is a puff pastry of some sort wrapped around it.

Episode 189 transcription Cassy Joy: Welcome back to another episode of the Fed and Fit podcast. I am your host, Cassy Joy Garcia. And I am excited to be back today. It has been; man. We’re just two weeks in, and it’s been quite a year already {laughs} hasn’t it? Anybody else? Anyone else feel like it’s been quite a year already? We are gearing up for probably; not probably. The biggest year of Fed and Fit. And it is very exciting. Lots of moving parts and pieces. Lots of really fabulous contributors on board to help make things bigger and better. And just; it’s shaping up folks, we’re getting there. Ok, so. I couldn’t help but give y’all that little update. Today we’re going to talk about 7 reasons not to diet. Now let me just throw in a really quick disclaimer. I am not saying that you do not need to diet. If that is something that you're listening and you're in the middle of a diet and you feel really good about it and you're making improvements that you would not have made otherwise, and you believe this is the right choice for you; then by all means, continue. Keep doing that. Tune out. You can come back and listen to this later if you decide that you might need to hear what I’ve got to say today at a different time. But, if you're the kind of person that is looking for maybe a different perspective on diets. And maybe you would like to know from a different vantage point. What else should I be considering, or could I be considering when it comes to diets? Aside from the onslaught of commercials, and lose 20 pounds by spring break kind of advertisements that we’re being just peppered with right now. So that’s what we’re going to chat about. I have come up with seven reasons not to diet. And I have lots of good reasons for these reasons, and we’re going to go through them one by one. I hope that they are helpful. I hope that the help you make a very informed decision on what is the right path forward for you. And again, like I said, at the end of the day; and I say this in a lot of my work. I really don’t care what you choose. I just care that you have all the information so that you can choose powerfully. Alrighty. So if you're looking for a reason not to diet, reason number one {laughs}; because I definitely, my take on then, which we’ll obviously expand today. My take on diets are that they aren’t actually as necessary as we might think they are to achieve what we thin we want to achieve. So reason number one not to diet; you are an entirely unique individual. Nobody looks like you. Nobody acts like you. Has your upbringing. Your laugh. Your voice. Your talents. Or your preferences. Which is why there is no reason at all to think that an out of the box, non-custom diet is going to fit you perfectly. Right? It’s like trying to fit a square peg into a round hole. It’s just, you're never going to find a diet that feels perfect for you. Because you are entirely unique. Ok? Just let that sink in. I’m going to roll through these really quickly, actually, because I think they’re better said quickly. Number two reason not to diet. You don’t actually want what a diet will actually deliver. You probably want long-term results, right?

Just let that sink in.<br /> <br /> I’m going to roll through these really quickly, Cassy Joy Garcia clean 20:32 Ep. 188: Body Kindness https://fedandfit.com/ep-188-body-kindness/ Mon, 07 Jan 2019 09:22:44 +0000 https://fedandfit.com/?p=19861 On today's episode, I'm chatting with Rebecca Scritchfield, RDN, EPC all about the ideas of body kindness, ditching diets, and finding a sweet spot where nutrition, taste, and pleasure are combined to create a sustainable way of living and relating to your body.  This episode is such a wealth of knowledge and I can't wait to share it!

And I hope this finds you well, and merry, and bright, and light. {Laughs} And all the wonderful things that are going on this time of year. I’m sitting here drinking Topo Chico, which is a sparkling water, out of a wine glass. So it’s extra festive. And what we’re talking about today is rethinking your resolution. Every year, I like to address resolutions head on. Really look the them right in the eyes, stare them down. Figure out why they work, why they don’t work. Why do they sometimes feel like such a good idea, and then they turn out to feel like the worst idea ever. Or they turn into a trap door that we fall through and we feel really bad about ourselves. Resolutions are really tricky. And if you're thinking about them; maybe you're not the resolution type of person. And I absolutely get that. But if you are the resolution kind of person, I think this is a very timely conversation. And even if you are not the resolution kind of person, I think you're going to enjoy today’s episode. We’re talking about rethinking your resolutions. And what you're not going to hear me say is you're not going to hear me talk about coming up with a theme for 2019. I’m not going to talk about having a buzzword, or even a specific goal. We’re not going to talk about that. We’re not going to talk about how to come up with an exact metric that you can use as your resolution for 2019. We’re not going to say; I’m going to eat healthier in 2019 and I’m going to do this, and I’m going to do that! Because when we say what we are going to do in that tone, and in this context of; it’s late December BUT in 2019 I’m GOING to do blah, blah, blah. If I could capitalize the but, and the going, I would in that sentence. Because those are the two things wrong IMHO; in my humble opinion, wrong with New Year’s Resolutions. Because, we see them as contrary to our current way of living; as the but. Right? We see them as against the way we’re living right now. And GOING; I’m GOING TO means, I’m not doing it now but I will. I’m going to do this one day. And it comes across like a wish. Like a hope and a wish. It doesn’t sound like you have a whole lot of buy in, is what I’m trying to get at. When you say; I’m going to do this in 2019, it sounds a heck of a lot like you are not identifying as that person and as that resolution. It’s not real in your head yet, and you almost are waiting for the year to prove it to you that it’s actually going to happen. I hope this is making sense. Hopefully someone around is nodding their head while they listen. So, how do we rethink a resolution? Aside from saying, I’m going to lose 20 pounds in 2019. But in the meantime, I’m going to go ahead and gargle some eggnog. Right? It doesn’t feel real. It feels like a wish, and saying; I’m justifying my overindulgence in 2018. And you guys know that I have no problem with indulging. I’m all about the holidays, and indulging, and living, what is it? My sister, who is much cooler and younger than I am, she tells me to go live my best bougie life.

Episode 185 Transcription Cassy Joy: Welcome back to another episode of the Fed and Fit podcast. I am your host, Cassy Joy Garcia. And I’m so excited to talk to you today. We are going to tackle a pretty big topic. And when we wrote this down into our content calendar, today’s topic, it sounded so simple on paper. {laughs} It sounded so simple, we were just choosing a topic that we wanted to address on the podcast. We very carefully chose this one today. We’re talking about how I, personally, broke the diet cycle. It happened years ago. Or at least it started happening years ago. And as we’ll talk about today, it’s something that I continuously work on. It’s one of those things you're never done really working on it. And we wanted to chat about it right now; right in the smack-dab center of December, because, like we did when we did that little jump start on resolutions a few weeks ago. We really want to get in your ear now. I want to get into your ear before all of the diet commercials start flooding our televisions. Before all of the before and afters start flooding our Instagram. I want to just get into your ear, and maybe propose a slightly different alternative. Alright, so how the heck did I do this? First let’s start with my story. And the reason why this all of a sudden felt much more daunting than I anticipated when we wrote the topic down, because when I was sitting down making my notes on today’s podcast. All the outline that I wanted to discuss, I realized that I’m pretty far down this road. And granted, it is something I still work on day to day. Or maybe it’s less frequent now; maybe on a weekly or sometimes just a monthly basis. It rears its ugly head. I really had to time machine myself back to; what was that breaking point? When did I break up with diets? What were the emotions around it? What did I feel? Why did I do it? How did I do it? I chatted with my team, because when we have kitchen days, we chit-chat all day long about; gosh, if there could be a fly on the wall {laughs}. There is probably some dirt that we throw around when we’re cooking. Just our view on the diet industry. And I don’t have nice things to say about it; I’ll just start there. Ok, so what is my story? For those of you who are relatively new listeners, welcome. My name is Cassy Joy Garcia, like I said. And I got my start in the health and wellness industry with a blog that I started back in 2011. It was June 2011, and I started it really on the tail end of my major transformation. Granted, like I said, it’s something you're never done with it. Or you're not ever really done with it. But I had had a breakthrough, and I was making things happen. And I wanted a blog so that I could share it. Because everywhere I went, I had folks that asked me. I was essentially a different person. Yes, I looked different, but how I showed up to people was very, very different. All of a sudden, I was a much more confident version of myself. I was much happier. I was much more positive. On today's episode, I'm deep diving into one of the most asked questions I get - how I broke the diet cycle in my own life.  In today's society, this is a struggle that runs deep in the lives of so many people, On today's episode, I'm deep diving into one of the most asked questions I get - how I broke the diet cycle in my own life.  In today's society, this is a struggle that runs deep in the lives of so many people, and while I don't claim to have it all figured out, perhaps sharing a bit of my story will empower you to take the first step in breaking this cycle for yourself.<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> We're back with our 185th episode of the Fed+Fit Podcast!

And when we wrote this down into our content calendar, today’s topic, it sounded so simple on paper. {laughs} It sounded so simple, we were just choosing a topic that we wanted to address on the podcast.<br /> <br /> We very carefully chose this one today. We’re talking about how I, personally, broke the diet cycle. It happened years ago. Or at least it started happening years ago. And as we’ll talk about today, it’s something that I continuously work on. It’s one of those things you're never done really working on it. And we wanted to chat about it right now; right in the smack-dab center of December, because, like we did when we did that little jump start on resolutions a few weeks ago. <br /> <br /> We really want to get in your ear now. I want to get into your ear before all of the diet commercials start flooding our televisions. Before all of the before and afters start flooding our Instagram. I want to just get into your ear, and maybe propose a slightly different alternative. <br /> <br /> Alright, so how the heck did I do this? First let’s start with my story. And the reason why this all of a sudden felt much more daunting than I anticipated when we wrote the topic down, because when I was sitting down making my notes on today’s podcast. All the outline that I wanted to discuss, I realized that I’m pretty far down this road. And granted, it is something I still work on day to day. Or maybe it’s less frequent now; maybe on a weekly or sometimes just a monthly basis. It rears its ugly head. I really had to time machine myself back to; what was that breaking point? When did I break up with diets? What were the emotions around it? What did I feel? Why did I do it? How did I do it? <br /> <br /> I chatted with my team, because when we have kitchen days, we chit-chat all day long about; gosh, if there could be a fly on the wall {laughs}. There is probably some dirt that we throw around when we’re cooking. Just our view on the diet industry. And I don’t have nice things to say about it; I’ll just start there. <br /> <br /> Ok, so what is my story? For those of you who are relatively new listeners, welcome. My name is Cassy Joy Garcia, like I said. And I got my start in the health and wellness industry with a blog that I started back in 2011. It was June 2011, and I started it really on the tail end of my major transformation. Granted, like I said, it’s something you're never done with it. Or you're not ever really done with it. But I had had a breakthrough, and I was making things happen. And I wanted a blog so that I could share it. Because everywhere I went, I had folks that asked me. <br /> <br /> I was essentially a different person.

And I am thrilled to have you here today. Thank you so much for dialing. I am jumping into this episode with a plan of action. I want to tackle your biggest pain points. If you follow me on Instagram, over at Fed and Fit; pretty simple name. If you're listening to the podcast, you probably know the name. {laughs} Try to keep it simple across the board. If you follow me over there, and you watch my stories, you saw recently I asked you a question. I wanted to know what has been your biggest healthy lifestyle pain point of this year? And the feedback that I got was wonderful. If you're listening and you did provide feedback; thank you very much for participating. It was very interesting, enlightening. And what we learned; we studied, we downloaded all of your wonderful responses. Thank you for being so candid and honest, because it really helps us figure. I respond to your feedback like that in two different ways. The first way, of course, is as a human being. Because a lot of your pain points are also my pain points! And I feel them on a very personal level. And then I also respond to them from a business perspective. Because we at Fed and Fit, we are really working hard to make sure that we’re helping to address those pain points and maybe make light, or provide new alternative solutions, or a new light, or a new perspective on some of these things that we keep running up against. So that’s kind of what we’re going to talk about today. We found that a lot of y’all’s feedback fell into about five, roughly five different buckets of pain points, with varying subtleties amongst all of your answers. But I think it’s a great opportunity to tackle these five. And I’m not approaching this conversation as a; here are your answers! Here are your solutions {laughs}. Because I don’t have all the answers and all the solutions. But what I can do is I can maybe provide some talking points around some of the feedback that you provided. And maybe, just maybe, it helps establish a slightly different perspective on something that’s so perplexing. Because what I have learned in my own life is it’s often those questions that I puzzle with, and I puzzle some more. If you think of the Grinch who Stole Christmas. When I’m puzzling and puzzling some more, On today's episode, I'm taking all of your amazing feedback and working through your 5 biggest pain points of 2018!  My goal on this episode is to take these common struggles, and to help you find simple strategies to move forward and beyond what's hol...

And when she first got diagnosed, autoimmune paleo didn’t even really exist. It was pre-AIP. AIP was just sort of getting started. So we had followed Datis Kharrazian’s work. Datis Kharrazian, for your listeners who don’t know; he’s a functional neurologist. He just got a PhD. He’s a chiropractor. He’s really a pioneer in the autoimmune movement. So we started following his work. And then AIP came to fruition. So my sister and I worked together; me, helping and supporting her. To go on the autoimmune paleo diet. Which she got great results with. I went on the autoimmune paleo diet because I had the genetics for it. So I really entered into that world, because there were a lot of people who are interested in trying it out and seeing how they felt.

Thank you for being here! How nice that is! How nice it is that you decided to be here right now, listening to this show! I’m very honored. Well, allow me to be one of the people wishing you a very happy Thanksgiving, if you are in an area of the world that celebrates Thanksgiving! It’s a really special time of the year, and I wanted to kick off Thanksgiving week. Well, if you have kids, you kicked off Thanksgiving week probably two weeks ago because of all the school activities. {Laughs} But allow me to kick off Thanksgiving week the official Monday before Thanksgiving with a mindset episode. Every once in a while, if you’ve been a longtime listener, you’ve heard several of these episodes over the years. And every once in a while I just like to hop on, and do a quick; how are you doing? How are you doing over there, show. And maybe just offer a little encouragement as the year goes on in different seasons and things. So what I want to talk about today; for those who are looking, maybe, for a way to approach the holidays differently. I want to talk with you. Now, there are some of you listening, and you are probably thinking; nope. Cass, I have my holiday game plan. I do the same thing every year. And I love it. And it makes me tick. And it’s what makes my world go round. That is great. I have no desire to tell you that you are doing it wrong. If it’s working for you, then by golly, it’s working for you and you keep doing it. This episode is meant for those who are kind of nervous about the holiday season. Because maybe they have seen the cycle over the years of; oh my goodness, we’re gearing up for Thanksgiving. Everyone is getting very excited about all the food and all the recipes! And maybe we go in thinking; everything is going to be a cheat day.

I am your host, Cassy Joy Garcia. Thank you for being here! How nice that is! How nice it is that you decided to be here right now, listening to this show! I’m very honored.<br /> <br /> Well, allow me to be one of the people wishing you a very happy Thanksgiving, if you are in an area of the world that celebrates Thanksgiving! It’s a really special time of the year, and I wanted to kick off Thanksgiving week. Well, if you have kids, you kicked off Thanksgiving week probably two weeks ago because of all the school activities. {Laughs} But allow me to kick off Thanksgiving week the official Monday before Thanksgiving with a mindset episode. <br /> <br /> Every once in a while, if you’ve been a longtime listener, you’ve heard several of these episodes over the years. And every once in a while I just like to hop on, and do a quick; how are you doing? How are you doing over there, show. And maybe just offer a little encouragement as the year goes on in different seasons and things.<br /> <br /> So what I want to talk about today; for those who are looking, maybe, for a way to approach the holidays differently. I want to talk with you. Now, there are some of you listening, and you are probably thinking; nope. Cass, I have my holiday game plan. I do the same thing every year. And I love it. And it makes me tick. And it’s what makes my world go round. That is great. I have no desire to tell you that you are doing it wrong. If it’s working for you, then by golly, it’s working for you and you keep doing it. <br /> <br /> This episode is meant for those who are kind of nervous about the holiday season. Because maybe they have seen the cycle over the years of; oh my goodness, we’re gearing up for Thanksgiving. Everyone is getting very excited about all the food and all the recipes! And maybe we go in thinking; everything is going to be a cheat day. Or I’m going to use it just as an aside from the way I currently eat my diet. And then we indulge in Thanksgiving, or the Friendsgiving, or the 14 Thanksgivings you attend, if you have a whole bunch of family and friends.

I have an undergraduate degree in interior design, and my master’s degree is in human environmental sciences of interior design. So that’s kind of where the interior design aspect of my background started, was all through college and graduate school. And honestly, I was not interested in anything eco-friendly, environmental, because my whole drive behind design school was to graduate and start designing hotels. And just with the research that I had done, designing eco-friendly hotels wasn’t really on the radar at that point.

My name is Cassy Joy Garcia, and I will be your host for today, like every day, here. {laughs} Today I’m really excited about this interview. It’s something I’ve personally been extremely curious about. Because I keep hearing about the wonders of CBD oil, and we are bringing on an expert to talk about it today. We’re speaking with Dr. Jess Peatross. Dr. Jess Peatross: Hi! Yeah, you got it. Cassy Joy: {laughs} I even asked her before we started the show how to say it, and then I immediately forgot. I think I saw something shiny. Maybe the CBD oil could help me with that. {laughs} Dr. Jess Peatross: {laughs} It will help you with that, actually. Cassy Joy: I knew it! So, just I’ll tell you a little bit about her, and then I would love for Dr. Jess to share a little bit more about herself. So, she believes and I love this, that personalized, preventative and functional treatment plans are the next step to revolutionize health care. Disease is much easier to prevent than to cure. Dr. Jess would love to help you heal on every level through inspiration, knowledge, movement, nutrition, and a multi-disciplinary approach. Which means, you are a bird of this feather, Dr. Jess, because that is definitely what we talk about a lot on this show. And the community here can really wrap their heads around it. So welcome to the show! Dr. Jess Peatross: Well thanks for having me. That’s a really warm welcome. And yeah, it sounds like we’re all on the same wavelength as far as healing, taking charge, and being proactive with our health. So that’s my audience, for sure. Thank you guys for having me. Cassy Joy: Of course. Thank you for coming on, and taking the time. I love it. And I really am eager to dive into this. I would love if you could share a little bit about what you do; maybe expand on that a little bit. A little bit about your background, and then I have some questions for you. Dr. Jess Peatross: Sure. So, I’m a conventional medical trained doctor. I’m board certified in internal medicine, until next year. I have to take my boards again, which is a looming cloud. But other than that, when I got out of residency, which was in Louisville, Kentucky, I really started to see, as a hospitalist, that patients really never healed.

I am your host, Cassy Joy Garcia. Today is just me. You get me and myself. {laughs} Me myself and I. I am going to jump into kind of a healthy lifestyle topic today. We’re going to talk about 10 different environmental stressors. And the point of this episode is definitely not to scare you, ok? The important thing is not to panic, everybody. I just want to say that from the get-go. There are stressors all around us all the time, and the only reason I want to talk about them today is just to add a little bit of perspective. There was an analogy that we use all the time here on the show, and then also within the Fed and Fit Project, when that was up, and then on the blog. We talk a lot about the total load. And that total load that we carry, and the image that it immediately paints in my mind is that of a camel carrying a whole bunch of straw on it’s back. And when we think about our environmental stressors, that adds to our total load. We’re going to go over what some of those could be today. And when we think about some of the not healthy, nourishing foods we’re eating. That adds to the total load that our body has to then negotiate, try to detoxify from, and then heal from. And then we think about maybe age adds to our total load. Maybe how mobile we are adds to our total load. Dehydration can add and slow taking some of those other pieces of straw off. All kinds of things, which can continually add to our total load. And the one we’re going to talk about today; I don’t like to focus on these too much, because a lot of them are there. And they’re just going to be around us. And we just need to make peace with it. So why do we even bring up some of these environmental stressors that are just a part of our world today? One; because maybe there are a couple of things we can tweak, and that’s really exciting. And two, because I think it fuels the fire to want to balance out in other areas of our life. Right? It’s a great reason to then go and maybe tackle some of our stress levels, instead of letting that be a runaway train. It’s a good reason to maybe eat a little bit better. Or maybe workout a little bit more. Or maybe just implement some very general practices that can help us be well overall, because we do live in somewhat of a toxic world. Ok, now that I’ve gotten that off my chest, and hopefully nobody has panicked. Because the important thing is not to panic. {laughs} Let’s jump into some of these. Ten environmental stressors. I’m not going to spend too much time going into the nitty gritty detail, although I do have a lot of notes on the topic. I’ll go over some high level stuff. So, one environmental stressor that I’m sure; I’m going to lump the first two together. Because they’re very similar. We’re going to talk about our cell phones, and we’re going to talk about Wi-Fi EMF. Ok, so what is EMF? Have you heard about this? What the heck is this thing? EMF stands for electric and magnetic fields. These are areas of radiofrequency energy that can include electrical power in various forms of natural and manmade lighting. So this EMF, electric and magnetic fields. They exist all around us all the time. A lot of these have been here since the dawn of time. And of course, we as men are contributing and harnessing a lot of that energy and a lot of the physics and the science behind that to help make life happen for us today in this new age.

I am your host, Cassy Joy Garcia. And today is a very special interview. I’m so excited for you to hear from the incredible Kathryn Lukas. She is the founder of Farmhouse Culture. And I’ll be you’ve heard of them before. If you haven’t; if you don’t have something already tasty in your refrigerator right now. I’m really thrilled to hear from her today, but just to tell you a little bit more before she introduces herself more thoroughly. Kathryn is, like I said, the founder, fermented food leader of Farmhouse Culture. Which is a company started in 2008. She has a rich knowledge of the fermentation process. It started with her love of fresh sauerkraut. Farmhouse Culture is known for it’s organic, probiotic rich offerings like kraut, gut shots; I love those. And fermented vegetables. Lukas’ first book will be released in the summer of 2019. That’s just around the corner. By Ten-Speed press. Oh my goodness. Kathryn, it is such a joy to have you on the show today. Thank you for coming on! Kathryn Lukas: Oh, Cassy, I’m thrilled to be here. Thank you for inviting me. Cassy Joy: Oh my, like I said. We pow-wowed a little bit before I pressed recording. The honor is really mine; I’m thrilled to talk with you. I would love it if you could tell us a little bit more about yourself. And about Farmhouse Culture. And about the big project you're working on right now. Kathryn Lukas: Ok, alright. Well, I’m a California girl who fell in love with a German, and ended up owning a restaurant in Germany and learning how to cook over there. And as a kid, I refused to eat the canned kraut that my grandfather loved to serve every couple of weeks. And I got to Germany, and discovered kraut in a whole different light when a farmer that we bought some of our products from gave me a forkful of fresh kraut from a barrel. Up until that point, even though I knew how to cook, I still didn’t understand that sauerkraut was fermented in a barrel. I just thought it was cabbage in vinegar; because that’s what it tasted like to me. And, when I tasted this fresh kraut, I was blown away. It was one of these moments of just pure love. I couldn’t believe it was the same stuff I had rejected as a kid. So I became fascinated with it. And when I came back to the states, having learned northern European cuisine sort of cooking, to be honest I was a little bored with it. I needed to finish raising my son, also. And I ended up in front of the house management and hated it. I was a food and beverage director down in Carmel, and just hated all of it. I wanted to get back to the kitchen. So I went through a natural chef culinary program, and learned how to ferment. And I remembered that fresh kraut, and it all clicked. And I just went wild. It was like, giving a painter new colors to paint with. That’s what it felt like, having these fermentation flavors. And so, I started fermenting like crazy, and was thinking about what sort; I knew I was going to do another business. I wasn’t sure what it was. And in the meantime, I started selling my sauerkraut through a friends CSA. I was using their cabbage, and they were like; hey, On today's episode, I'm talking with the founder of Farmhouse Culture, Kathryn Lukas all about the sauerkraut scoop! - We're back with our 175th episode of the Fed+Fit Podcast!

And I’m really excited to chat with her. Her name is Megan Garcia. She is, to tell you really quickly about her, Megan is a mama of two boys. She lives in Los Angeles. She has a master’s degree in traditional Oriental medicine. And is the creator of First Foods and Beyond. When Megan found out she was pregnant with her first baby back in 2011, she began exploring baby health and wellness. Specifically, a baby’s first 1000 days. Her interest in baby health, combined with a big love for all things food and gut related, has become the heart and soul of what she does in her own little corner of the web at MeganGarcia.com. Gosh, that is the second time I tried to mispronounce your last name, which is very embarrassing, because it’s my name. At www.MeganGarcia.com.com. Megan; welcome to the show! Megan Garcia: Thank you! I’m so excited to be here. Cassy Joy: I’m so excited to have you here. This is going to be really fun, and it’s very relevant, because I have an 8-month-old. And I feel like I’m a sponge right now, learning as much as I can about first foods. So thank you so much for taking the time to come on. I would love it if you could tell us a little bit more about yourself. And then we’ll jump into some of these questions. Megan Garcia: Ok. So, I have a background in Chinese medicine. And I talk about herbs and acupuncture a lot in my work, just because it’s kind of a natural way to manage imbalances in the body. But, when I was in school, I did a lot of writing for folks in the health industry. Bloggers and other people. So, when I was doing that, I kind of realized that I wanted to read actual research and science. And I live right next door to UCLA, and that’s where I went to school as an undergrad. So I ended up spending a lot of time on the UCLA campus, reading a lot of research about the gut and the immune system. And that’s how I did my work then. Then I got pregnant, and I continued to do that. I had a baby. And I was interested in pregnancy and nutrition for baby. But it really wasn’t until he was 2 years old that I kind of decided that I wanted to do something of my own. And start blogging, instead of more of a ghost-writing position. More of; this is me, and this is what I think about. So, it turns out that gut health and the immune system, it really has a big role in pregnancy and diet as well. All the different diets that we do, like AIP diet, and paleo, and all of that. It plays a really big role in those first 1000 days of baby’s life. Which would be 9 months of pregnancy, and then the 2 years of your baby’s life. And those 1000 days have a huge impact on the rest of your baby’s life. Not to put pressure on moms; I know we already have enough pressure and mom guilt. But it really helps to have knowledge about what might be the best thing. That’s what I’m really passionate about. Because I feel like there is a lot of pressure we place on ourselves, so there’s room for compassion. And just understanding yourself, and being kind to yourself. But at the same time, there’s also room for legit research knowledge to come into play, and help you make choices in a really easy way. Cassy Joy: I love it.

All the different diets that we do, like AIP diet, and paleo, and all of that. It plays a really big role in those first 1000 days of baby’s life. Which would be 9 months of pregnancy, and then the 2 years of your baby’s life. And those 1000 days have a huge impact on the rest of your baby’s life.<br /> <br /> Not to put pressure on moms; I know we already have enough pressure and mom guilt. But it really helps to have knowledge about what might be the best thing. That’s what I’m really passionate about. Because I feel like there is a lot of pressure we place on ourselves, so there’s room for compassion.

I am your host, Cassy Joy Garcia. And I am coming back this week with a reverse interview. I’m getting even more excited about these, because y’all have been writing in, messaging in, all of the ways, smoke signals {laughs} to relay information, virtual, that you are loving reverse interviews. And I’m really glad, because I really, really enjoy them. So, today we are chatting with Christine! And Christine comes to us from good old McKinney, Texas. And she works there for a nonprofit. Welcome to the show, Christine! Christine: Thank you so much for having me. Cassy Joy: Yeah, thanks for taking the time to come on, chat for a little bit. I think you're on your lunch break right now, so thanks for carving out a little time for us. I would love it if you would share a little bit about yourself, and also what you wanted to chat about today. Christine: OK. So like you mentioned, I live in McKinney, Texas. I was born and raised in the Dallas area. So I never really left it. And I work for a nonprofit. I emailed you because I’ve been on my fitness weight loss journey for a really long time now. I’m 23, and I recently got married in January. And was always a very heavy child. My heaviest ever was 205 pounds, when I was going into my freshman year of high school. And at that point, I kind of realized I didn’t always want to be the overweight kid in high school, and what not. So I started going to a gym down the street that my high school had done a joint thing with, where it could be an off-campus PE. So I had a personal trainer for a couple of years. And that really helped a lot. I had a trainer who said he was going to make a runner out of me, and I ran a 10K just this past year. So, the joke was on me in that one. But yes. Since then, I’ve kind of been trying to find things that work well for me. I’ve done a lot of different things that I’ve seen online. From the Bikini Body Guide by Kayla Itsines. And the Tone it Up stuff. And right now, I’ve done calorie-counting, I’ve done macro counting, I’ve done Whole30. I’ve done a little bit of everything. And I have things I like, and I have noticed where I feel like I saw significant progress, but now recently I’ve realized that I think I was actually undereating significantly. So I lost my period, and stuff. So I’m trying to find that place where my healthiest me plan, I guess. And I have your book, and I love it so far. And the journaling has been great. So my biggest thing is; I’ve found that I’ll be really focused for like 3 months, and I’ll see really good progress, and I’ll get really excited. And this happened last summer. I came home from Washington D.C. for my birthday, and I had more of an indulgent weekend. And after that it’s like everything broke. I couldn’t focus anymore. And I started snacking more. And so it’s just been like; I go through these cycles. And I’m really ready to kind of break that whole cycle issue that I have. I have learned what kind of triggers my issues. I’ve found that I definitely snack when I’m bored, or even emotional eating. And I think I have a little bit of body dysphoria, to an extent. So just kind of dealing with all those things. It’s like; I get so frustrated at myself, because I was doing so well, and then I self-sabotaged. So it’s just a really hard thing to keep going through. Cassy Joy: Mm-hmm. I’m nodding my head. And I have a feeling there are lots of other listeners nodding like; y...

I am your host, Cassy Joy Garcia. And today is a really interesting interview. This is something that I personally find very fascinating. We’re interviewing Dr. Anna Scott. Let me tell you a little bit about her, and then I’m going to pass the baton over so she can expand on that. Dr. Anna Scott is a mathematician and an environmental scientist turned entrepreneur. Her company, Clair, builds air monitoring devices that help everyone breathe easier by letting you know what’s in the air, and what you can do about it. Dr. Anna received her PhD in Atmospheric Science from John’s Hopkins University. Welcome to the show Dr. Anna! Dr. Anna Scott: Thank you, Cassy. Thanks so much for having me. Cassy Joy: Oh my goodness, thank you so much for coming on. Like I said, this really is something that I find very fascinating. But before we get to the nitty-gritty details of indoor air quality, I would love it if you could share a little bit more about yourself. What got you into this industry? What really inspired you? And tell us a little bit more about Clair. Dr. Anna Scott: Yeah. So I’m a scientist by training. In college I studied math, and then I took this course where I started learning about the environment. And I thought; wow, this is pretty cool. So I kept doing that. And I found myself in graduate school, and I was studying atmospheric science. Which means I studied what’s going on in the air around us affects everybody. And I ended up talking to a lot of families while doing that. And one thing that kept coming up is I was sort of explaining things about big, big problems like climate change, and heat waves, and natural disasters. People wanted to know if what they were breathing in the air around them was safe. So that sort of inspired me to dig in a little bit more to finding out about some chemistry in the air. How it affects us, the health effects. And then finally I decided that there wasn’t enough around us to fix this problem. So I got together with a couple of my engineering buddies, and we started making these devices. Cassy Joy: Very neat. Tell me more about these devices. What exactly do they do? Dr. Anna Scott: Yeah. We design devices that measure what’s in the air. So, we target specific types of pollutants that are known to be common problems in the air around you. And we put together a bunch of sensors into a cute little box that can sit in your home, and tell you if those things are at levels that are problematic or not. And our app tells you what to do about it. Cassy Joy: So interesting! So what would you say are some of the qualities. I’m sitting here, of course, in a room. I’m inside. {laughs} Dr. Anna Scott: {laughs} Cassy Joy: It’s one of those, when you first learn about the toxins that can be found in some of our favorite convenience foods, and maybe some of the things that’s in our water. You just start seeing the world as it is. Air quality has not been one that I really ever thought about, outside of maybe mold. Right; that’s one most folks can wrap their heads around. What are some of the common ones that you think are lurking amongst us? The unseen little particles around. And what’s the implication of those on our health? Dr. Anna Scott: Yeah. So, we do think a lot about pollution outdoors.

I am your host, Cassy Joy Garcia. And I am back today by popular demand. Y’all have been writing in, saying, “We want more reverse interviews!” {laughs}. I really have gotten several of these notes, and it’s very exciting. Because today I’m introducing you to Maggie. It’s one of my favorite names. I didn’t tell you this beforehand. But Maggie is joining us. She is an occupational therapist for an in-patient rehab clinic located out of Philadelphia. And I am so excited to welcome you to the show today, Maggie. Thank you for making the time to come on. Maggie: My pleasure. Thanks for having me. Cassy Joy: Of course! And for listeners, just know that we have a little bit of a delay. Bear with us, but it will all be good. Alright, I will pass the baton off to you if you want to tell folks a little bit more about yourself and then we can start our chat. Maggie: Sounds good. So, like Cassy said, I’m living in Philadelphia, PA. Right in the city, which is really neat. I’m 31 years old, and I’m currently going through my first pregnancy. Which is very exciting, and also very scary at the same time. I’m very active on a normal day before being pregnant, and have been a longtime follower of Cassy and all the good stuff you're putting out there, so thanks for that. And I originally reached out to you, I guess during my first trimester, just because I was kind of hitting a wall when it came to exercise and kind of knowing how to navigate this new process. And you just kind of seemed like you had a really good balance. Kind of found a really healthy rhythm of staying active, and having a healthy pregnancy. So I’ve got lots of questions about that today. Cassy Joy: Perfect. Well it’s a great conversation. It’s something I get asked about a lot. So I’m really thrilled to talk with you about it. How far along are you right now? Maggie: I just started 21 weeks. Cassy Joy: Oh my goodness! How exciting! {Laughs} Well, we have a video chat going. You're radiant. You’re absolutely lovely; it’s very exciting. Maggie: {laughs} Thanks. It’s a little warm in here; I think that’s more the issue. Cassy Joy: Isn’t that so funny? People talk about the pregnancy glow, and I was just like; I’m just sweating. I’m sweating. {laughs} Maggie: That’s exactly it. That’s 100% it. {laughs} Cassy Joy: I love it. Well you really do look lovely, and very beautiful. What are some of your questions to kind of get us started then? What’s the first thing you're wondering? Maggie: I think I’ve been having a hard time finding the right information. Especially just for me, as far as there is just so much conflicting information out there when you go searching and hunting, to find reliable and valid information is pretty hard. And there’s just such a wide variety of opinions and advice. So just trying to find the right balance between exercise during pregnancy. So I’m repeatedly told, “You need to take it easy. You need to turn it down a little bit. Go at a conversational pace.” Whatever that means. But then on the other hand, making sure you're exercising, making sure you're being as healthy and doing all the things you used to do is fine. Especially if you're body is used to it. But being that I’m very active on a normal day, that’s just kind of a hard thing for me to wrap my brain around.

I am your host, Cassy Joy Garcia. And today we’re back; I’m interviewing the lovely Heather England. Heather is the blogger behind FitMamaRealFood.com. She is a wife; mom to four little kids, a group fitness instructor, and is passionate about real food. Today I’ve invited her onto the show to talk about how to bring kids into the kitchen. Welcome to the show, Heather! Heather England: Thank you so much for having me, Cassy! It’s just so exciting to be here with you. Cassy Joy: Yeah! Thanks so much for coming on. Heather England: Yeah. Cassy Joy: Heather interviewed me on her podcast; and she was like, how about we chat some more and share about this topic I'm really passionate about. So tell us a little bit more about yourself. How you got into this scene. I know people are always very curious about how do you become a food blogger, and a podcaster and all this sort. And then what specifically has inspired you; you have four littles. So I’m sure that has everything to do with it. But has really inspired this topic of bringing kids into the kitchen to be a passion project of yours? Heather England: Yeah. Well, yes I’m a mom to four. I’ll start with a little bit about me. I’ve been married to my husband; gosh, we just had our 10-year anniversary. We have four kids, ages 6, 4, 2, and 4 months old. And they are so much fun. And so high energy! {laughs} And I really got into blogging shortly after my husband and I got married. So it’s almost been 10 years that I started my blog. And initially it started as just a place for me to share, as I was learning kind of how to be healthy. My husband and I often joke about 10 years ago, we would go to Costco, and we would buy this garlic chicken frozen meal. And that’s the only thing we can remember eating from 10 years ago; although we ate more. It’s amazing to see the journey of how far we’ve come. So my blog started as just a place for me to share my path to becoming a healthier version of myself in both nutrition and movement. And then it’s kind of blossomed into sharing about motherhood, and more of my journey as a group fitness instructor. And cooking with my kids. I love bringing them into the kitchen with me. One, because I think it’s so important to show them where our food comes from. And also so that they can start to be comfortable in the kitchen. And it’s just one of my favorite places to bond with them. They get excited. So I’ve been sharing about that more recently on my blog, as well. And I have more things coming in the near future for that, as well. Cassy Joy: Well that’s exciting! What a tease. Heather England: {laughs} Cassy Joy: I would love it if you could chat a little bit about; let’s say there’s a mama, or a papa, listening out there who is thinking yes. I like this idea. But how do you actually make it happen? Because when you think about dinner time. Maybe it’s a scramble! Maybe you're getting home from work; and you're thinking; are you kidding me? I just need to get dinner on the table before there are any melt downs. What are some first steps for involving your kids in the kitchen right from the get go. Maybe we haven’t really had a whole lot of time to jump in and strategize on our own. So what would you say are some good first timer tips? Heather England: Yeah.

I am your host, Cassy Joy Garcia. And today we’re back; I’m interviewing the lovely Heather England.<br /> <br /> Heather is the blogger behind FitMamaRealFood.com. She is a wife; mom to four little kids, a group fitness instructor, and is passionate about real food. Today I’ve invited her onto the show to talk about how to bring kids into the kitchen. Welcome to the show, Heather!<br /> <br /> Heather England: Thank you so much for having me, Cassy! It’s just so exciting to be here with you.<br /> <br /> Cassy Joy: Yeah! Thanks so much for coming on.<br /> <br /> Heather England: Yeah.<br /> <br /> Cassy Joy: Heather interviewed me on her podcast; and she was like, how about we chat some more and share about this topic I'm really passionate about. So tell us a little bit more about yourself. How you got into this scene. I know people are always very curious about how do you become a food blogger, and a podcaster and all this sort. And then what specifically has inspired you; you have four littles. So I’m sure that has everything to do with it. But has really inspired this topic of bringing kids into the kitchen to be a passion project of yours?<br /> <br /> Heather England: Yeah. Well, yes I’m a mom to four. I’ll start with a little bit about me. I’ve been married to my husband; gosh, we just had our 10-year anniversary. We have four kids, ages 6, 4, 2, and 4 months old. And they are so much fun. And so high energy! {laughs}<br /> <br /> And I really got into blogging shortly after my husband and I got married. So it’s almost been 10 years that I started my blog. And initially it started as just a place for me to share, as I was learning kind of how to be healthy. My husband and I often joke about 10 years ago, we would go to Costco, and we would buy this garlic chicken frozen meal. And that’s the only thing we can remember eating from 10 years ago; although we ate more. It’s amazing to see the journey of how far we’ve come.<br /> <br /> So my blog started as just a place for me to share my path to becoming a healthier version of myself in both nutrition and movement. And then it’s kind of blossomed into sharing about motherhood, and more of my journey as a group fitness instructor. And cooking with my kids. I love bringing them into the kitchen with me. One, because I think it’s so important to show them where our food comes from. And also so that they can start to be comfortable in the kitchen. And it’s just one of my favorite places to bond with them. They get excited. So I’ve been sharing about that more recently on my blog, as well. And I have more things coming in the near future for that, as well.<br /> <br /> Cassy Joy: Well that’s exciting! What a tease.<br /> <br /> Heather England: {laughs}<br /> <br /> Cassy Joy: I would love it if you could chat a little bit about; let’s say there’s a mama, or a papa, listening out there who is thinking yes. I like this idea. But how do you actually make it happen? Because when you think about dinner time. Maybe it’s a scramble! Maybe you're getting home from work; and you're thinking; are you kidding me? I just need to get dinner on the table before there are any melt downs.<br /> <br /> Cassy Joy Garcia clean 25:17 Ep. 169: Healthy Back-to-School https://fedandfit.com/ep-169-healthy-back-to-school/ Mon, 06 Aug 2018 21:29:52 +0000 http://fedandfit.com/?p=17263 On today's episode, I'm talking with team member Jess Gaertner about a healthy back to school strategy!

I am your host, Cassy Joy Garcia. And I just tickled to be back here today. It feels like this is; I don’t know. It feels like this is a little bit more of a team meeting. I’ll explain. Jessica Gaertner: It does. Cassy Joy: Doesn’t it? {laughs} So, today I’m joined by the newest Fed and Fit team member, Jessica Gaertner. Jess, you're probably familiar with her. She is the cohost of the Modern Mamas podcast. And, she is the blogger over at Jess Hold the Space Wellness, if you want to check her out. And she has done us the distinct honor of joining team Fed and Fit. She’s going to help us with all kinds of stuff. And Graysen is also joining us today, so it really does feel like a team meeting. She’s been sitting in her exersaucer thing for a grand total of 7 minutes, so we might be maxed out. {laughs} Jessica Gaertner: She is such a trooper though, oh my gosh. She hangs in there for long work days, and I imagine she is going to do fantastic on this podcast episode. She has things to add. I’m sure she has valuable information. Cassy Joy: She does. She’s looking at me right now, like, “Don’t forget that thing we talked about.” {laughs} Ok, anyway. Gus is crying at the door. Everyone is here! It’s really exciting. But what we’re going to do today is, Jess is brand spanking new to the team. And we said welcome to the team Jess. Amber and I are absolutely in the deep end of the pool on trying to get book number two over to the publisher. So we were like; here’s a project. You think you could make this happen tomorrow? {laughs} Jessica Gaertner: {laughs} Cassy Joy: And she obliged, and she’s done a fabulous job. So I wanted to welcome her on the show today to introduce her first big project with team Fed and Fit. We can talk a little bit more about what she’s going to be doing in the future. But her first big project was helping us put together a back to school series for the blog. So I’m very excited about it. For four weeks, she has masterminded with everybody, but she’s really taken the lead on putting out some healthier lunches for kids, healthy lunches for adults. And then some other really great articles. Healthy snacking 101. Ecofriendly school products. We’re going to do an article on DIY lunch meat; your own lunch meat. Things like that. So, that’s going to be throughout the month of August. So if you're listening to this as a replay, then just go back through the blog archives and you can find those. But I wanted to welcome her on the show today so we can kind of walk through it. Give you a little bit of a sneak peak at some of the content coming up. And if you're just thinking; I don’t really have time to wait for all this content all month long, could you please just give me the highlight reel? That’s what we’re going to do today. Jessica Gaertner: I’m so excited. Cassy Joy: Because it’s hard to just sit here and recite. Jessica Gaertner: Right. And that would be kind of boring. Cassy Joy: Yes, that would be boring. I wouldn’t do that to you. Instead, I have myself a bar of dark chocolate and a gluten free beer and a baby. And it’s a Sunday afternoon. We’re just making it work. And I think that’s a good theme for today’s show. We’re just going to make it work. Jessica Gaertner: Absolutely. Cassy Joy: Jess has got some really good insights here.

I am your host, Cassy Joy Garcia. Welcome to the show. Today, you get just me. Me, myself, and I. And what we’re going to chat about today is the real-real on how my life has changed in the last 6 months since having a baby! She’s so cute! If you didn’t know it, Austin, my husband and I, welcomed our first little girl. I say that because one day maybe we’ll have more babies. But we welcomed Graysen into the world in January. On January 25, 2018, she made her appearance. I went almost 42 weeks pregnant with her. And if you’d like to read all about her birth story, you can head over to the blog. I have Graysen Joy’s birth story is a blog post here. It’s unabridged {laughs}. So if you like detail, I got you covered. But a question I’ve gotten a lot has been; how is this different since baby, and how is that different since baby. Workouts. Food. Body image. Sleep schedule. How are you doing all of these things? How is your work different? So we thought that it might be a really good opportunity just to hop on; let’s chat about it. I’m going to tell all. Because these are the kinds of things that I was curious about before having a kid. I wanted to know how life; what does it actually look like? How actually is it different? Because you hear so many mixed reviewed, right? And I think personal mindset and personal outlook has a lot to do with how you perceive life as being different after having a kid. After having a baby. So I say that with a caveat, because I still find myself feeling incredibly grateful. I mean, gosh you guys. There are moments every single day. I’m trying not to sound too, too cheeseball. But this is from the bottom of my heart. Every single day, there’s at least one, if not several moments, where I walk in from a different room, and Gray; we call her Gray. Is sitting there with my husband, or with our childcare person. Or with a family member. And I walk in, and I see her, and I think, “Oh my gosh! I have a baby! I can’t believe it! She’s my baby! I had that! My body grew her! Look at her, she’s got this light in her eyes. She’s her own person. She’s so little and cute and sweet and sassy and all those things. I can’t believe that she’s a part of my life.” I guess I wanted to say that, because that’s the context of my perception. Yeah, there are hard days. There are things that are very different that make an impact, of course, on the ease of my life right now. It’s not as easy to do certain things that I got to do before having a kid. But oh my goodness. I still find myself so incredibly grateful for just this enormous blessing that has been bestowed. Children are a gift, and she is the greatest gift. So, say that first. Let’s jump into the nitty gritty. Blah, blah, blah; we get it. You love her. {laughs} Tell me what’s going on. Tell me what’s actually different. So let’s break it up into categories. We’re going to talk about workouts, wardrobe, food, schedule. Overall schedule. We’re going to talk about sleep. My marriage. Friendships with other people. Body image. And work. So if you're curious about any of those things; what it’s like having a 6-month-old; or 0 to 6-month-old, that’s the experience I can speak from. That’s what we’re going to jump into.

I am your host, Cassy Joy Garcia. And I am beyond thrilled for today’s interview. I have invited Lorissa Link. She’s the founder of Lorissa’s Kitchen, to the show today. Let me tell you a little bit about her, and then we’ll hear from her. Lorissa created Lorissa’s Kitchen snack brand. She, like so many women today, was busy juggling a career and a family. No matter how busy her day gets, she enjoys the true satisfaction for being there fully for each moment. And real food helps make that happen, because it satisfies the body, the mind, the heart, and soul. When Lorissa founded Lorissa’s Kitchen, she set out to create delicious, healthy snacks that she could take anywhere and keep her family well nourished without sacrificing quality and responsible ingredients that she really cares about. Which is why she so resonates with what we do over here at Fed and Fit. So outside of her career, Lorissa enjoys traveling the world and cooking for her family. Welcome to the show, Lorissa! Lorissa Link: Well thank you so much for having me today! I’m very excited to be here and chat with you. Cassy Joy: Oh my goodness, the pleasure is truly mine. I’m so thrilled for today’s talk. I would love it; I, of course, introduced you very briefly. But will you tell us a little bit more about yourself, and then what interested you in launching Lorissa’s Kitchen? Lorissa Link: Yes, absolutely. Like you said, I’m the founder of Lorissa’s Kitchen. A premium protein snack company, where I’m dedicated to crafting real protein rich snacks that support a full life. I know everybody is busy out there. On a personal note, I’m a mom of 2, expecting our third in December. I’ve been married almost 9 years coming up in august. And of course, we live a busy life, like many other families out there. Trying to juggle family with work and some personal time as well. And that’s what led me into launching Lorissa’s Kitchen. I was pregnant with our first. I started really diving into food labels, and all of the ingredients that were being added to shelf stable products. Even products that are prepped and ready to go. The things that they need to add to them to make them convenient for you just were not aligning with what was important to me. So I wanted to make it easier for other people out there to eat healthy, and not make it such a pain. Long food labels with ingredients that you can’t pronounce are things that we will never have in Lorissa’s Kitchen. So that’s really where everything resonated with me. Cassy Joy: That’s wonderful. You're a girl after my own heart. I think that when I started in the real food world, it was through my own health transformation. And that was about 9 years ago, so I guess right when you got married! {laughs} Lorissa Link: Yep! Cassy Joy: And back then, it was really hard. I’m sure you remember; it was really tough to find food products, convenient products, that I could take with me. Otherwise, I was at home making my own snacks. And that was the only option that we had. So I remember thinking; gosh. One day, there’s going to be somebody that can make something {laughs} that I can take with me. And feel good about. Well, that’s wonderful. And thank you, personally, thank you. I’m thrilled to have these snacks for myself and my family. I’m really curious.

I’m going to read you a little bit about her bio, so I can briefly introduce her. She can do a much better job of it, of course, and then we’ll jump into some really fun Q&A. Nicole has been a practicing OB/GYN in Abilene, Texas since 2011. She graduated medical school in 2004 from the University of North Texas Health Science Center. The Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine. She is now an adjust clinical assistant professor for the UNTHSC. That’s a lot of letters. Dr. Nicole Bullock: I know! {laughing} Cassy Joy: {laughs} And recently finished a graduate certificate in lifestyle medicine. Also through the same program. She is truly passionate about women’s health. Is an active leader in her community. And feels that it is a privilege to give back to her hometown. She’s also been interviewed multiple times with Refinery 29 and the Strategist of New York Magazine. She wrote a guest blog for Diva Cup blog back in 2014, which is one of the things we’re talking about today that’s really been the most requested topic. And it is her goal for her patients to think better, feel better, and live better. She became obsessed with the Diva Cup around 2008-2009, and first contacted them in 2010 when she did the Susan G. Komen 3-day breast cancer walk. She sent an email through their contact link on their website, explaining that she was a huge fan of Diva Cup, and asked if they would sponsor her OB/GYN office team. They said no; but, they sent a few cups to give to patients, and she continued to drop the occasional note just to tell them how much they loved their product. A few years later Sophie asked her to write the blog post about vaginal health, which is what we’re going to talk about today. And that’s how she started her relationship with Sophie Zivku; did I say that right? Dr. Nicole Bullock: I think so. Cassy Joy: OH my gosh. That’s incredible, I got that right. Diva International Communications manager. Fun facts about Nicole; she teaches yoga. She loves CrossFit. She’s a nutrition nerd by hobby. Paleo for 10 years. It’s like we’re sisters.

Welcome to the show, Nicole! Dr. Nicole Bullock: Thank you, Cassy! This will be so much fun. Cassy Joy: Oh my goodness. I’m so tickled. I’m looking forward to this conversation for a long time. I did a pretty good job, I feel like, of covering the bases. But is there anything else you’d like to tell folks about your background and really what inspired your interests in promoting true women’s wellness in this way? Dr. Nicole Bullock: I think I grew up with parents who were just always interested in overall health. My parents didn’t just run to the doctor or give us antibiotics. In fact, one of my favorite stories to tell; I went to osteopathic medical school, On today's episode, I'm chatting with Dr. Nicole Bullock about menstrual care options, including the Diva Cup, and more. - We're back with our 166th episode of the Fed+Fit Podcast!

I am your host, Cassy Joy Garcia. And we are back with another reverse interview. Today is going to be a really interesting conversation. I have personally been really looking forward to it. We are joined today by Erin. Let me tell you a little bit about Erin. She is a Packer fan, born and raised in the great state of Minnesota. She puts her teaching degree to good use working in youth ministry, coaching at a gym, and very recently becoming a Beautycounter consultant. Woop! This January, Erin and her husband welcomed the lovely Emma Joy into the world after a longer than hoped for journey to parenthood. Erin is passionate about understand how treating our bodies well physically, nutritionally, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, can bring us into more harmony with who we are created to be. Ooh, I’m so excited to talk with you today, Erin! Welcome to the show! Erin: Thanks for having me. I’m excited to chat. Cassy Joy: Oh my gosh, me too! She’s been so patient with me. We’ve gone back and forth and had to reschedule a couple of times. So I really appreciate you carving out some time. Ok, let’s jump right into it! These reverse interviews, I like to just hand the baton over. You’ve got the reins for the show. I know that we’re going to chat about one thing in particular, but if you want to share anything more about yourself, or dive in with any other questions. It’s all yours, girl. Erin: Yeah! I’m excited to chat today. It’s funny. I’ve been listening to this podcast, the Fed and Fit podcast for a while. And kind of seeing your stuff on Instagram. And I remember it was like the picture; your pregnancy announcement of Gus and the little bun in the actual oven. It was probably pretty soon after that I realized I was pregnant. And I was like; oh my gosh! This woman is very similar to me, only in Texas instead of Minnesota. So it’s been cool just to hear about and kind of follow along as we had this pregnancy journey on a very similar timeline. And actually, there was a reverse interview a couple of weeks ago where you talked about how you have some allegiance to the Packers, or whatever. And I was like; oh my gosh. That’s why we can be friends. Because the Packers are the best. Cassy Joy: {laughs} They are the best. Erin: Yeah. It’s funny, my 94-year-old grandmother; or she’s 95. I can’t remember. Is the reason I’m a Packers fan. So I’m technically, on my mom’s side, a first-generation Minnesotan. My mom was born in Wisconsin, my grandma is from Wisconsin. And my husband likes to say that she was a very good brain washer. So she got me on the Packers side young. Cassy Joy: That is so fun. I don’t know if you heard this in that show, but we don’t actually have any ties geographically. Erin: Right. But didn’t you say your dad bought shares for Christmas presents or something? Cassy Joy: Yes. Erin: Or did I make that up? Cassy Joy: Nope. You nailed it. That’s exactly it. In case y’all haven’t heard the story, my dad was blessed with three daughters. And he is just the perfect dad for three strong women. Because we still tossed the football. But I remember me and my sisters, we love college football. We’re all Texas A&M Aggies, and I can really get into some college football.

I am your host, Cassy Joy Garcia. And today we’re back with a reverse interview. If you're unfamiliar with reverse interviews, or you’re new here; people who are longtime listeners of the Fed and Fit podcast are like; who doesn’t know what this is yet?! {laughs} But if you're new here, a reverse interview is where a fabulous Fed and Fit listener writes in with some really good questions, or brings up a really good topic. And instead of answering their questions politely via email like they’ve asked, I instead invite them to come on the show to chat about it. So hopefully our conversation can go a little further and help some other folks. Today I’m joined by the lovely Shelby Love. Isn’t that just the best name. She lives in California. She’s a college student there, studying English Lit. Oh my goodness, that sounds like so much fun. An alter ego of mine would have just loved to study English lit. There weren’t enough hours in the day to study all the things I wanted to learn about. And she has a cat named Walter. I think it’s a great cat name. Welcome to the show, Shelby! Shelby Love: Hello. Cassy Joy: Hi! Thank you so much for making the time to chat today. Shelby Love: Yeah! So, should I just go for it? Cassy Joy: Yeah, go for it girl. Shelby Love: Alright. First, I think I’ll give a little background on how I got to where I am. I have pretty much always struggled with body image, insecurities, those kinds of things. From a little girl all the way to kind of today. That developed into an eating disorder when I was in high school that kind of lasted on an off for about four years. And that eventually ended when I met my husband, and he kind of taught me that certain things aren’t as important as your personality, and who you are. And I kind of stopped following those eating disorder tendencies. I spent about a year doing whatever I wanted. I didn’t work out. I didn’t worry about what I ate. But then after that year, I started to have some health problems that were kind of concerning. I had really unbalanced hormones. I was having joint pain all the time. I gained a lot of weight that I couldn’t lose easily. I was only 19 at the time, so a lot of these health problems were things that my doctor was kind of like; “Wait a second, you're so young. Why are you having these issues?” It ultimately was discovered that these were probably a result of the eating disorder, and I was kind of suggested to start doing a paleo approach to see if I could fix some of these things and reverse some of the problems I was having. And I’ve been doing that for about a year. And it’s definitely been a struggle, which is why I emailed you. Because I was looking for some motivation and kind of some mindset help. I have had some progress. But it’s definitely been minimal. I have seen some decrease in some joint pain, or I’ve noticed some other things. I’m less sensitive to temperature and that kind of stuff. But overall, about a year in, I’m still struggling with my hormone balance. I’m still struggling with weight that I can’t lose. Still dealing with exhaustion and being tired. I’m kind of just; I think this is the right thing to do. I know if I stick with it, health will kind of figure itself out, and these things will heal. But I’m kind of losing motivation.

I am your host, Cassy Joy Garcia. And we are back today with an old-fashioned episode for longtime listeners. We are going to dive into a mindset topic. And instead of having somebody on to join me, you get just me! {laughs} I’m pretty pumped about today’s episode. We’re going to talk about 10 unconventional ways to relieve stress. When we think about health and wellness, we know that stress management is a top priority. But when we’re told that we need to manage our stress levels; it almost becomes a self-fulfilling prophesy. Because we start stressing about our stress levels. Or manifest destiny. When we start to be nervous about our stress levels, we start to stress about them a little bit more. Because it’s a difficult topic for us to really have clear direction on. We’re not quite sure; what do we do? It’s very ambiguous. It feels very fuzzy, and it’s hard to really wrap our arms around stress. Do we need to care a little bit less? What is it? Do we need to have a different kind of emotional reactions to different things in our lives? So, instead of saying, “Let’s get on top of our stress.” We’re going to talk about 10 unconventional ways to relieve them. And hopefully there’s something in here for everybody. And even if you're thinking you're not somebody who gets generally stressed out, or if you are somebody who feels pretty calm, cool, and collected on top of things, I still hope there’s something in this episode that maybe resonates with you and maybe you can take away to implement in your own life. Alright. So let’s jump right in. Number one. Unconventional way to relieve stress. Make a donation. It’s interesting, because when we feel stressed out. Or when we are worried, or anxious, the world is about us. Right? It’s me, me, me, me. I think I need more. I need more of this, I need more of that. I need more time. I need more sleep. I need food right now. Whatever it is. I need people to listen to me. I need people to respond. I need to figure out my goals. Whatever it is, we’re stressed for one reason or another. And I’ve found that it’s often because we have planted ourselves at the center of the universe. Which we should be; but that’s really where a lot of the angst comes from. And there’s some unrest there. I have found that when you're feeling stressed out, and it’s all about you, if you make it about somebody else, all of a sudden things feel a little lighter on your plate. And it becomes a little less about you. Some of that worry and that angst is relieved a little bit. So choose an organization that really resonates with you, and give them a donation of either money or time or resources. I have a feeling that when you do that, it will instill, without you really trying to, it will instill a certain sense of perspective and appreciation for where you're at.

And there’s some unrest there.<br /> <br /> I have found that when you're feeling stressed out, and it’s all about you, if you make it about somebody else, all of a sudden things feel a little lighter on your plate. And it becomes a little less about you. Some of that worry and that angst is relieved a little bit. So choose an organization that really resonates with you, and give them a donation of either money or time or resources.<br /> <br /> I have a feeling that when you do that, it will instill, without you really trying to, it will instill a certain sense of perspective and appreciation for where you're at.<br /> <br /> Today’s show is made possible because of our friends at Thrive Market!

I am your host, Cassy Joy Garcia. And I am thrilled to be chatting with you all today. And a very special guest. Her name is Adrienne Herrenbruck. She is a professor of exercise science. She lives in South Carolina. And she is joining me today to talk about intuitive eating. I’m really excited about this conversation. Welcome to the show, Adrienne. Dr. Adrienne: Hi! Thank you for having me. I’m excited to be here. Cassy Joy: Yeah, thank you so much for joining. Adrienne and I were chatting before we pressed record. I told her that there’s a good chance you’re going to hear babies and whatnot in the background. We have a full house over here. And even though I have one of the best editors, I think, in the world. In case you don’t know; I’m going to give him a shout out. His name is Lang Freeman. He does this more as just a favor for me, but he’s a friend. But if y’all ever hear the band sounds under radio, they had a song. He’s probably going to be; I know he’s going to listen to this part. He’s going to be like; “Oh my gosh, I can’t believe you talked about that!” They had a song on Spiderman; one of the more recent Spiderman movies. Anyway. Hey Lang! Thanks for editing! But even though he’s amazing, we have a full house. So you're probably going to hear doors open. Dogs bark. Babies cry. And all that good stuff in the background. So welcome to real life today, everybody. Ok, now that I have that disclaimer out of the way. I’m so excited to hear from you today, Adrienne. This is a concept, intuitive eating, that I think is become a little bit more of a buzz. And folks are getting a little bit more curious. We nod our hat to it in the Fed and Fit Project, but it’s of course with a slight variation. Because there’s all kinds of intuitive eating concepts out there, and practices. But I’m really excited to hear from you today. So before we get to some of those questions, I would love it if you would share a little bit more about your background. What led you to becoming a professor of exercise science. And really how did you begin eating your own; this version of paleo? Dr. Adrienne: Yeah, sure.

Today I’m introducing you to Dr. Becky Campbell, who can be found over at DrBeckyCampbell.com. I bet you can remember that one pretty easily. She is the author of a book that is hitting shelves tomorrow. It’s called The 30-Day Thyroid Reset Plan. Subtitle is Disarming The 7 Hidden Triggers That Are Keeping You Sick. I’m so excited to chat with her today and learn all about this book. Welcome to the show Dr. Campbell. Dr. Becky Campbell: Hi Cassy! Thank you so much for having me. I’m so excited. Cassy Joy: Yeah, me too! Thank you for joining us. Well, I gave the tiniest introduction possible, so I would love it if you could tell folks more about yourself, your background, your work, and what led you to write this book. Dr. Becky Campbell: Sure. Probably about 15-ish years ago, I started to just not feel like myself. And I think that’s what I hear from most of my patients now; they don’t feel like themselves anymore. I was gaining weight, and I had never had a weight issue. I felt like I gained 30 pounds overnight. And I was just extremely tired. More tired than I had ever been before. Really making it hard to function. My hair was falling out in clumps, and I didn’t know what was wrong. I started seeing different doctors, and really nobody had any answers for me. And eventually the last thing I probably heard was, “Take this depression medication.” Pretty much telling me it was all in my head. But I knew that it wasn’t. I knew that there was something wrong. I finally met someone who did functional medicine, which I had never heard of before. Which is pretty much a more natural approach to looking at what’s going wrong in the body. Doing thorough testing, and really figuring things out that way rather than listening to symptoms and prescribing medications.

She is a wife and mother, and has been working in the financial industry for almost 10 years. She enjoys running and all things health and wellness. Welcome to the show, Emily! Emily: Thank you! Thank you for having me. Cassy Joy: Yeah, girl! Thank you for coming on. I’m excited to chat today. And I get this impression; it’s like I’m talking to Snow White, because of the birds chirping in the background {laughs}. Emily: Yes, for all the listeners, I’m hiding from my toddler. And the porch seemed like a better avenue than my laundry room. Cassy Joy: I love it. It’s perfect. Get you some fresh air and some birds chirping. That’s so cute. Well, welcome to the show, I’m really excited to jump into our discussion today. But do you want to kick us off with either a little background or a couple of questions? Emily: Absolutely. So I’m excited to be on here today. Basically, I guess what brought me here was I have reached out to you. I’ve been, like you said, in the finance industry for almost a decade. I work for a really great company. But my passions have always lied in health and fitness and nutrition. And so I feel like I’m kind of at this point in my life that I would be interested in changing careers. But the hurdle to pass is, I guess, the transition phase of I have a family. I have a house. And there’s also financial responsibilities that I can’t just avoid. How do you think a transition could be smooth in swapping careers? And entering the nutrition world? Cassy Joy: This is such a great question. And it’s one that I find myself talking about often with some of my friends that I consider peers and colleagues in this industry. Because it seems like such a mystery. Having gone through it myself. So to give a little background information on my experience swapping careers and jumping into nutrition. It’s not; and you would want to be self-employed in that, right Emily? Emily: Yes. Cassy Joy: So, when you go from, let’s say for example, folks listening.

Cassy Joy: Welcome back to another episode of the Fed and Fit podcast. I am your host, Cassy Joy Garcia. And I am so excited to have you here, welcoming dear friend and trusted mentor, Liz Wolfe back onto the show. Today we’re talking about pregnancy best practices. And just in case you missed part one, today I will reread you her bio and I will reintroduce you to her. But I also recommend that you listen to that first episode. There’s going to be a lot of good nuggets there, as well. So to tell you briefly; Liz is an author, podcaster, parent, and nutritional therapy practitioner who is passionate about real food, safe beauty, and healthy families. She’s the author of the Wallstreet Journal bestseller Eat the Yolks, The Purely Primal Skincare Guide, and she’s currently working, three years in, on a comprehensive program called Baby Making and Beyond. Which will give parents and parents to be everything they need to know how to thrive through fertility, pregnancy, and parenthood. Welcome to the show, Liz! Liz Wolfe: Hi! How are you? Cassy Joy: Good! {laughs} Liz Wolfe: {laughs} Cassy Joy: You did such a good job of sounding fresh. {laughing} In all honestly, we recorded these back to back, so I applaud you for that. I have no smoke and mirrors here. I like to share it all. {laughing} Liz Wolfe: {laughs} Cassy Joy: Oh man. Ok I’m excited about today’s episode. Again, this is another one of those things where I’ve had questions. And I try to limit when I reach out to Liz. Because you don’t want to be that person that’s texting constantly. “What do you think about this?” {laughs} Liz Wolfe: You can be that person, Cassy. Of anyone. You can be that person. Cassy Joy: I’ve done it on occasion. But we’re going to talk about pregnancy best practices today. Which is very apropos, I am currently with baby in belly. So I have had to learn a lot of this. Something about this industry and this world. I was decidedly ignorant going into it in a lot of ways. I knew enough to be dangerous. Liz Wolfe: {laughing} Cassy Joy: Because part of that is my job. As a nutrition consultant, and just being aware of the body in general. I knew a good amount. But not to the level of curiosity that I would want applied to my own experience, if that makes any sense? Liz Wolfe: Yeah.

I am your host, Cassy Joy Garcia. And I am so excited to have you here, welcoming dear friend and trusted mentor, Liz Wolfe back onto the show. Today we’re talking about pregnancy best practices. And just in case you missed part one, today I will reread you her bio and I will reintroduce you to her. But I also recommend that you listen to that first episode. There’s going to be a lot of good nuggets there, as well.<br /> <br /> So to tell you briefly; Liz is an author, podcaster, parent, and nutritional therapy practitioner who is passionate about real food, safe beauty, and healthy families. She’s the author of the Wallstreet Journal bestseller Eat the Yolks, The Purely Primal Skincare Guide, and she’s currently working, three years in, on a comprehensive program called Baby Making and Beyond. Which will give parents and parents to be everything they need to know how to thrive through fertility, pregnancy, and parenthood. Welcome to the show, Liz! <br /> <br /> Liz Wolfe: Hi! How are you? <br /> <br /> Cassy Joy: Good! {laughs} <br /> <br /> Liz Wolfe: {laughs} <br /> <br /> Cassy Joy: You did such a good job of sounding fresh. {laughing} In all honestly, we recorded these back to back, so I applaud you for that. I have no smoke and mirrors here. I like to share it all. {laughing} <br /> <br /> Liz Wolfe: {laughs} <br /> <br /> Cassy Joy: Oh man. Ok I’m excited about today’s episode. Again, this is another one of those things where I’ve had questions. And I try to limit when I reach out to Liz. Because you don’t want to be that person that’s texting constantly. “What do you think about this?” {laughs} <br /> <br /> Liz Wolfe: You can be that person, Cassy. Of anyone. You can be that person.<br /> <br /> Cassy Joy: I’ve done it on occasion. But we’re going to talk about pregnancy best practices today. Which is very apropos, I am currently with baby in belly. So I have had to learn a lot of this. <br /> <br /> Something about this industry and this world. I was decidedly ignorant going into it in a lot of ways. I knew enough to be dangerous.

You're the best. Liz Wolfe: Well, it’s not really for you. It’s for the baby. Cassy Joy: It’s for the baby. Liz Wolfe: Yeah. Cassy Joy: That’s even better. I’m at that point now; so this is the week before Christmas. And my mom was asking, “What can I get you for Christmas?” I’m like, “Anything for the baby.” {laughs} Liz Wolfe: Yep. Yep.

Cassy Joy: Welcome back to another episode of the Fed and Fit podcast. I am your host, Cassy Joy Garcia. And today is a reverse interview. Just as a refresher, in case maybe it’s one of your first reverse interviews. A lovely Fed and Fit listener or reader writes in with a great question, and instead of politely answering their question, I ask to book them on the podcast so we can chat about it. So today we are joined by Lynette. Lynette lives in a teeny tiny town in Nebraska. She is a stay at home mom full time. And we’re birds of a feather, because right now I’m holding a tiny little baby myself. {laughs} So she might make an appearance on today’s show. But it’ll be good. It’s going to be a family affair. Welcome to the show, Lynette! Lynette: Thank you so much! I’m really excited. Cassy Joy: I’m really excited to have you on here, as well. And just in case y’all are listening; if there’s any kind of a weird sound quality, know that we did our best to get it right. But I think it’s just going to be a cool conversation, so bear with us. Lynette, I know you have a couple of questions for us, but I would love it if you would tell folks a little bit more about yourself and your background and what really drew you to this healthier, real food lifestyle. Lynette: Ok! Yeah, great. I’m actually born and raised in Minnesota. We moved to Nebraska probably about 5 years ago. And I guess my healthier lifestyle kind of had to do with it. I was diagnosed with PCOS, which is polycystic ovarian syndrome. And for people that don’t know what that is, it’s basically more of just a hormonal thing. I was struggling with infertility issues. I had suffered a couple of miscarriages. And my husband and I had decided that we needed a fresh start. And it was kind of like sticking a pin in a map and just picking a place. And we ended up here in Nebraska. So all of our family is still back in Minnesota. So here we are, in the middle of nowhere. Which kind of leads to my question here. For PCOS, like I said it’s more of a hormonal issue. There’s no clear medication or treatment that you really take for it. It’s basically just lifestyle changes. And through all my research with it, I stumbled onto the world of paleo. Because it really messes with your insulin, is a big thing. I was on metformin for a while. Which is a medication for people with diabetes.

Today is a special interview, because it’s a reverse interview. What the heck is a reverse interview? If you're a new listener here, I’ll briefly describe it. It’s where Fed and Fit listener, reader {laughs} I was going to say follower, someone who follows the work in some regard. Whether it’s the podcast, the book, or the blog, or online writes in with a really great question. And instead of politely answering their question, like they’ve asked me to via email, I instead turn the table and invite them to come onto the podcast so they can ask me on a recording. With the hopes that the conversation then benefits a bunch of folks. And I have a feeling today’s will. So today we’re chatting with Kendra. She lives in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Welcome to the show! Kendra: Thank you! I’m so excited to be on. Thank you for having me. Cassy Joy: Thank you so much for making the time to come on. I’m thrilled to chat with you. I was going to ask her before I started recording; are you a Packers fan? Kendra: It’s actually a funny story. I’m originally from Minnesota, and my teenage rebellion I always say is that I became a Packers fan, because my whole family is Vikings fan. So it’s kind of ironic that my husband and I ended up moving to Green Bay last year for his job. So I am a Packer fan in a divided household in Green Bay. {laughs} Cassy Joy: Oh, that is hysterical! I am a Packers fan with no ties to Green Bay at all. {laughs} Kendra: {laughs} That was me until last year. And then randomly we just ended up moving here. Cassy Joy: That is so funny. We were always; I might have shared this story before. Sorry about the tangent. I just; they have a special place in my heart. My family, there’s three of us girls. We all went to Texas A&M University. And we all really love college football. That is my jam. But as soon as college football season was over, my sisters and I kind of became disinterested in sports. {laughs} And my dad; it was just so funny because he really loved those football days when we’d all get together and watch a game together. And it was several years ago, Green Bay opened up a portion of their shares. And they’re more so just tokens that you can go and buy a portion of the Green Bay Pack.

So it’s our intent, and it’s our core information that sets us apart from other companies that might be selling cleaning products. We do features a nontoxic, versatile, powerful, economic cleaning concentrate that can replace virtually all the harmful products in the home. And I know that sounds, maybe, what? Cassy Joy: It’s the real deal. I will tell you guys; I use it, and she is not joking. You need a bottle of this concentrate, and it pretty much replaces, like you said, virtually everything that we were using. Merilee Nelson: Yep. But this product is only a vehicle, or a platform for our message. If people get our message, they have the power to go out and buy the safe products they want. If they choose ours, that’s a bonus to us. But our desire is to create an army of people that eat real food and create healthy homes. Driven not by fear, but empowered by knowledge. And our goal is to make information that impacts health available and simple to implement. So we are redefining clean. Cleaning your home is one of the most important things you can do for your family. Because, what you clean with, how you clean, and what you have in your home affects the air quality. And that, in turn, affects family health. So we start with our focus; how you define clean impacts your decision-making process. For example; if your idea of a clean house is based on how y...

Cassy Joy: Welcome back to another episode of the Fed and Fit podcast. I am your host, Cassy Joy Garcia. And today we are back with the fourth and final installment of listener Q&A. So, let’s go ahead and jump right into it. In case you missed the first three installments, we talked about everything from mindset, to business ideas, lots of baby questions, pregnancy questions, postpartum fitness, pregnancy nutrition, and so on and so forth. Today, we are zeroing in on specific questions about nutrition and questions about safer skin care. Obviously, two of my primary passions. {laughs} So let’s get into it. Our first question is from Paleo Mrs. She’s asking; “How do you feel about bulletproof coffee, and intermittent fasting?” This is a great question. I actually get both of these questions pretty often, which is kind of funny, because they’re so specific. When it comes to bulletproof coffee, I have no problem with it. But I also don’t see it as a cure-all in a lot of ways. Every once in a while, a new product will pop up and it’s the new must-have, because it will help solve XYZ. And I’m always cautious of things that claim to solve a lot of things, especially if they’re food products. Bulletproof coffee, for those of you who aren’t familiar, the homemade variety is where you take some butter or coconut oil, some sort of a really great fat. You put it in with your hot coffee, stay with me, it’s delicious. {laughs} And then you can add, if you really want to get fancy, I’ve made it with collagen peptides. I’ll throw those in there, which are really great for hair and nail and skin growth. Some maple syrup is what I personally like to sweeten my coffee with. It’s delicious, you should try it if you are looking for a safer sweetener. And I like to put a little cream in my coffee, and then sometimes I’ll also add in some sort of a spice. Whether it’s a cinnamon. Primal Palate has a bunch of really wonderful sweet blends, like a gingersnap blend. I’ll sprinkle a little bit of that in there. And you blend it up. And what you get is a really delicious latte type of beverage. And it has a nice foamy top. It’s just wonderful. And because you added that butter, or that coconut oil or whatever your chosen fat was; ghee. You blend it in, you're able to start the day with some healthy fats in your stomach while you're drinking your coffee. And some folks really like it for a lot of reasons.

Cassy Joy: Welcome back to another episode of the Fed and Fit podcast. I am your host, Cassy Joy Garcia. And I am thrilled to be back again this week. If you are new here, welcome. Every once in a while; gosh, once in a blue moon. I cannot say once in a while, because I think this may be the second time I’ve done this in the history of this podcast. 152 episodes in. So once in a blue moon, we will do a listener Q&A. And this last round, being the second time I’ve done it in the history of this podcast, y’all submitted so many wonderful questions. And I am apparently very long winded that we had to break it up into several parts. So we’re back with part three of this listener Q&A. And I’m thrilled to get into it. So I’ll just go ahead and jump right in. If you missed the first two parts, just to rewind really quickly. We talked about pregnancy, pregnancy fitness, postpartum, and baby. And todays we’re going to dive into some of your business questions. Some cooking questions. Fitness. Just overall fitness. Gus, and mindset. And then next week; not next week. Several weeks from now we’ll round it all out. We’ll chat about nutrition and safer skin care. Alrighty, let’s jump in. This first question is a business question from Janie Taylor. And she said, “I just started listening to your podcast, and was surprised to learn you actually started with a cohost! When did you make the switch to host it solo, and why?” Charissa! Yeah, she was my cohost. This podcast would not have existed if it hadn’t been for Charissa. She; let’s see. If you rewind, I think we recorded a good; I think we made it into the 50s. I don’t know how many episodes we recorded together. But she is a friend of mine, and came up to me one day. We were at PaleoFx and she said; Cassy, why don’t you have a podcast? And I think my response was; what? Me? I didn’t even know I could do one. She’s like, I think you should! And I was so nervous about doing a podcast at first because it felt like I needed someone to give me permission to do it. But she saw some potential in it. She is one of those people that is so gifted at really just identifying; seeing what other folks don’t see and seeing really cool opportunities. So she put that on me, told me to think about. She said; if it would make you more comfortable, I’d love to host it with you. And of course I did not want to go into it alone at first. So that’s what we did.

They specialize in organic and biodynamic wines that are made using traditional wine making methods, but with minimal interventions. They’re free of added sugar and chemical additives.

What I love most about Wine Fellas, aside from the fact that they only source the best, natural wines in the world, but they also go the extra mile by giving you a fact sheet on each bottle that contains authentic alcohol content, residual sugars, sulfur dioxide in parts per million, pH, and acidity.

Cassy Joy: Welcome back to another episode of the Fed and Fit podcast. I am your host, Cassy Joy Garcia. And I am thrilled to have you join me today. Today is part 2 of what is likely to be a 4-part listener Q&A series. So what we did is I collected some questions; you guys submitted awesome ones via a call for questions a little bit ago on social media. And we’ve got them organized. Last time we had a Q&A podcast episode; you can find part 1, of course, on the blog or in iTunes. Wherever you're listening to this from. You can find that; that episode really focused on all of your pregnancy questions. We talked about pregnancy, pregnancy fitness, and pregnancy nutrition. And I’m apparently very long winded {laughs}, which is why we think this series might take a little bit longer. So today we’re focusing on a semi-related. We’re focusing now on postpartum. Your questions about postpartum, postpartum fitness, and baby. Ok. And then the last couple of episodes that we will zero in on will have to do with beauty, business, cooking, Gus, mindset, nutrition of course, and then a little bit more about safer skincare. Alrighty. Let’s go ahead and jump in without further ado. Our first question is from Stacy_Marie. She asks, “What are your must-have items for postpartum baby or self-related. It seems a lot of people buy all these gadgets that get used once or twice, and that’s it. Also, do you pump for night, so your hubby can help with the feedings, or are you doing it solo?” Great questions, Stace. I hope it’s ok; I just abbreviated your name even further! {laughs} Ok, so must-have items for postpartum. Goodness. Or baby. You know, when we went; on my blog, if you have not already seen this article. Or this blog post I put together. I posted my entire baby registry. And I think the post is called My Baby Registry. I shared that entire baby registry. I had done, of course, a lot of research on safer products for baby. I tried sources wherever possible materials that didn’t emit VOCs, volatile organic compounds. So the mattress was very important to me. The changing table pad. Everything from the disposable diapers we’re using while she’s really young, to the cloth diapers we’re planning on using later. And then I also, of course, have lots of gear in there. I have something for everything. I also have notes for mom. What are some good things to put on your list. And whether you have an actual registry or not, On today's episode, I'm answering YOUR questions about my postpartum experience and early days with baby! - We're back with our 150th episode of the Fed+Fit Podcast!

And today I am joined by a Fed and Fit listener. Her name is Natalie. And if you’re unfamiliar with reverse interviews, it’s where I have a fabulous reader or listener writes in with a really great question, and I invite them to come on the show to ask this question on a recording. And we get our conversation recorded. So today I’m joined by Natalie. She is just recently relocated to the Pacific Northwest, up near Seattle from the East Coast. I’m so excited to chat with you today, Natalie! Welcome to the show! Natalie: Thanks for having me. I’m excited. Cassy Joy: Yeah, definitely! Well tell us a little bit more about yourself. And then feel free to pepper away with questions. {laughs} Natalie: Sounds good. So like you said, we just moved here. It was a big change. And before we moved here, I basically got into the food and fitness sphere, whatever you want to call it, by working at a gym for a long time. That’s when I kind of learned about paleo, not caring about your actual numbers, and more about what your body can do. I found a bunch of food blogs, and yours was one of them, and I love it. Cassy Joy: Yay! Natalie: Yay! So my question is basically, because you talk about nourishing your body, listening to the cues that it gives you. And I am a person who; I feel like I’m constantly hungry. And a I have a couple of bites of food, and I’m full. {laughs} So literally when you talk about when you go out to eat, put away half your plate. I eat half of the half. And I feel like I’m done. So when I do go out to eat, if I go out with friends, it’s a little embarrassing so I’ll usually overeat. Because you don’t want to; I don’t know. I just feel like I don’t want to leave a ton of food on my plate. And also it usually tastes better. And then at home, I know what I want to eat so I’ll just make much smaller portions. And at home, when I cook at home, I do cook paleo. But out of the house I don’t. Cassy Joy: OK. Got it. I’m taking notes. I promise I’m not zoning out. {laughs} Natalie: No, you’re good. But yeah. And then no matter how much I eat, I feel like maybe an hour, maybe two, I’m hungry again. Cassy Joy: Ok. Natalie: So I’m trying to figure out; should I be training my...

Cassy Joy: Welcome back to another episode of the Fed and Fit podcast. I am your host, Cassy Joy Garcia. And I am excited today to bring you another very special guest. Today we are chatting with Mary Heffernan of Five Mary’s farms in Fort Jones, California. She lives there with her husband, Brian, along with their four daughters. Yes, all named Mary, too. She left a suburban life in Silicon Valley, California, to become a cattle rancher three years ago. They raise all-natural beef, pork, and lamb in the mountains of Siskiyou county, and ship their premium dry aged meats all over the country. Of which I’ve been a very grateful recipient. They are wonderful. Mary and Brian believe in doing things the old fashioned way and know that there are no shortcuts in agriculture. Raising animals the right way takes time, and attention, and hard work put in day in and day out by the whole family. Their attention to detail shows in the quality of their product. They are proud to share with people all over the US. Welcome to the show, Mary! Mary Heffernan: Thanks Cassy. I’m happy to be here. Cassy Joy: I’m so happy to have you here. I think I first came across you; it was several months ago. Diane Sanfilippo, a good friend of mine, had sent me several of your stories. And she was like; if you don’t, you need to be following Mary right now. {laughs} Mary Heffernan: Aww! Well we both have the love of a Great Pyrenees pup. Cassy Joy: We do. I love it. And I always wonder, because your Great Pyrenees are doing what they’re supposed to be doing. {laughs} they’re working. And whenever I chat; our Great Pyrenees puppy, he has a different kind of job description. But I’ve had dinner before with some folks that have working Great Pyrenees dogs. And for those of you who don’t know, Great Pyrenees are typically hard-working ranch dogs. Gus’s parents, for example, that’s exactly their background. They protected the livestock; from coyotes are really prevalent here in Texas. And Gus lives a very different life. He’s lounging on my bed right now. And I’ve had supper before with a couple of people who, when we told them we have a Great Pyrenees as a house pet, they looked at us like we invited a donkey into the house. {laughs} Mary Heffernan: {laughs} Well Gus looks very happy in his life as a house dog.

Cassy Joy: Welcome back to another episode of the Fed and Fit podcast. I am your host, Cassy Joy Garcia. And today I am thrilled to bring you a really wonderful guest. Her name is Lily Nichols. She’s a registered dietician/nutritionist. A certified diabetes educator, researcher, and author with a passion for evidence-based prenatal nutrition and exercise. Her bestselling book, Real Food for Gestational Diabetes, and online course of the same name, presents a revolutionary, nutrient dense, lower-carb diet for managing gestational diabetes. Her unique approach has not only helped tens of thousands of women manage their gestational diabetes, without the need for blood sugar lowering medication, but has also influenced nutrition policies internationally. It’s very cool. Lily’s second book, Real Food for Pregnancy, outlines the problems with current prenatal nutrition guidelines, and provides the evidence; 920 citations and counting; that’s wonderful. That supports a real food diet to optimize maternal and fetal health. It’s what we all want to learn about. Especially those of us that are currently pregnant, planning to get pregnant, or maybe we’re just generally curious! Lily is also the creator of the popular blog, www. PilatesNutritionist.com which explores a variety of topics related to food, mindful eating, and pregnancy nutrition. Welcome to the show, Lily! Lily Nichols: Thank you for having me, Cassy. Cassy Joy: Thanks for coming on! This is so exciting! I would love it if you could share a little bit more about your story, your background. What led you to this profession in particular. And with this brand-new book, why are you focusing now on prenatal nutrition? Lily Nichols: Yes. I’ll start from the top. I got interested in nutrition from a young age. I’m one of those rare people who decided in high school; I am going to study nutrition! And then stuck with it. Everyone’s like; you’ll change your major! You’ll change your mind. And I was really into it from the beginning. Pretty soon after I finished my training; my academic training and clinic training, I started working more in gestational diabetes and prenatal nutrition. I worked with the state of California for their diabetes and pregnancy program, which is called Sweet Success. And it was there that I was able to see both clinically and at the public policy level really more in-depth of why and what all the dietary recommendations are in pregnancy. And then what works and what doesn’t work. And what was kind of disappointing for me was, when I was working clinically and implementing the guidelines that I had helped create at the state level, a lot of my patients’ blood sugars were getting wo...

I am your host, Cassy Joy Garcia. And today I am thrilled to bring you a really wonderful guest. Her name is Lily Nichols. She’s a registered dietician/nutritionist. A certified diabetes educator, researcher, and author with a passion for evidence-based prenatal nutrition and exercise. Her bestselling book, Real Food for Gestational Diabetes, and online course of the same name, presents a revolutionary, nutrient dense, lower-carb diet for managing gestational diabetes. Her unique approach has not only helped tens of thousands of women manage their gestational diabetes, without the need for blood sugar lowering medication, but has also influenced nutrition policies internationally. It’s very cool.<br /> <br /> Lily’s second book, Real Food for Pregnancy, outlines the problems with current prenatal nutrition guidelines, and provides the evidence; 920 citations and counting; that’s wonderful. That supports a real food diet to optimize maternal and fetal health. It’s what we all want to learn about. Especially those of us that are currently pregnant, planning to get pregnant, or maybe we’re just generally curious!<br /> <br /> Lily is also the creator of the popular blog, www. PilatesNutritionist.com which explores a variety of topics related to food, mindful eating, and pregnancy nutrition. Welcome to the show, Lily!<br /> <br /> Lily Nichols: Thank you for having me, Cassy.<br /> <br /> Cassy Joy: Thanks for coming on! This is so exciting! I would love it if you could share a little bit more about your story, your background. What led you to this profession in particular. And with this brand-new book, why are you focusing now on prenatal nutrition?<br /> <br /> Lily Nichols: Yes. I’ll start from the top. I got interested in nutrition from a young age. I’m one of those rare people who decided in high school; I am going to study nutrition! And then stuck with it. Everyone’s like; you’ll change your major! You’ll change your mind. And I was really into it from the beginning.<br /> <br /> Pretty soon after I finished my training; my academic training and clinic training, I started working more in gestational diabetes and prenatal nutrition. I worked with the state of California for their diabetes and pregnancy program, which is called Sweet Success. And it was there that I was able to see both clinically and at the public policy level really more in-depth of why and what all the dietary recommendations are in pregnancy.

Cassy Joy: Welcome back to another episode of the Fed and Fit podcast. I am your host, Cassy Joy Garcia. Bringing you back another awesome episode today with a Fed and Fit listener and reader. Her name is Lauren, and she’s got a really wonderful story that I would love to share. It’s kind of like a reverse interview, except Lauren and I started chatting not so much about some questions she had but she wrote in and shared a little bit of her story. And I said; would you be willing to come on the podcast and talk about that? Because I really think that her story and her journey is going to encourage and comfort a lot of folks out there. So welcome to the show, Lauren! Lauren: Oh, thanks for having me! Cassy Joy: Thank you so much for coming on! Lauren, to tell you guys briefly about her. She is a nurse practitioner. Right? I didn’t write it down because I said I would remember, and now I’m doubting myself. Lauren: Yes, you're right. Cassy Joy: {laughs} She’s a nurse practitioner out of Houston, Texas, and is an absolute doll. Thank you so much for coming on and making time for us today. I would love it if you would tell us a little bit more about yourself. Maybe rewind the clock a little bit on your health journey. Lauren: Sure. So like you said, Cassy, my name is Lauren and I work as a nurse practitioner full time here in Houston. I have two little boys, a 1-year-old and a 3-year-old who keep me quite busy; my second full time job, I always say. And a wonderful, supportive husband who quite frankly I couldn’t do this journey without. So that’s a little bit of kind of who I am and where I’m coming from. I always think that’s important, because I think so often we always compare ourselves. And like; oh, I could never do something like this. I have a full-time job, or I’m a mom, or I stay at home with my kids and they’re in my hair all day. And I just want people to know, too, that The Project is so doable, even with super busy kind of crazy life. And maybe not having; I don’t just sit around all day and think about when I’m going to eat next and plan my workouts. You know? I think that’s important to know that it’s doable, no matter how busy your schedule is. Cassy Joy: Yeah. And I don’t want to interrupt you. Well, I’m going to interrupt you. I don’t want to. Lauren: Yeah, go ahead. {laughs} Cassy Joy: {laughing} But, just so you guys know if you're new listeners and you're not sure what she’s talking about. The Project that she’s referring to is the Fed and Fit Project, and it is the online food and fitness. Really healthy lifestyle kind of gentle guidance p...

Cassy Joy: Welcome back to another episode of the Fed and Fit podcast. I am your host, Cassy Joy Garcia. And today I am thrilled to bring you one of my personal teachers and mentors that has really helped. I went through his schooling program, Bauman College, a couple of years ago. And from there, launched my own holistic nutrition practice. So I’m going to tell you a little bit about him; Dr. Ed Bauman. The namesake. Dr. Ed Bauman has been a pioneer in the field of holistic nutrition for over 35 years. His vision and leadership have inspired thousands of people to transform their lives. I would argue that’s even more than thousands of people since then. In the form of wellness, community, and peace. He received his M. Ed. From the University of Massachusetts, and a PhD in health promotion from the University Of New Mexico. Dr. Bauman created the eating for health model to teach individuals to make nutritionally comprehensive food choices. He founded Bauman College in 1989 with a mission to change the world through better nutrition and healthful living. He is a special advisor for the National Association of Nutritional Professionals, and brings a wealth of knowledge, wisdom, and love of good health and good taste to his work. Welcome to the show, Dr. Bauman! Dr. Ed Bauman: Oh, I’m so happy to be here with you and all of our listeners. Cassy Joy: Yes! Absolutely. I just can’t wait for them to hear from you. So that was just a very brief introduction. And I know that all of your professional accomplishments, especially more recent ones, far exceed what I read. If you don’t mind, tell us a little bit more about yourself, and about Bauman College. Dr. Ed Bauman: Ok. Well, I got started on this path when I was 23 years old. And now I’m 71. So if you do the math, that’s quite a long time. I’ve always been interested in health, and food, and community. And really, forward progressive thought and action. So I was a child of the 50s and 60s, and saw that the culture was really off track. And it really didn’t represent innate natural health values, or spirituality. I’m a good student, and teacher, and I love my work. I was fortunate to buy an organic farm with my friends. It was a commune in 1970. So a pretty young age. So I learned about nutrition from the ground up. I cooked on a wood stove, and I grew food, and did fermentation, and drying, and pickling, and all that good stuff way back as a youngster. Looking at academia, I didn’t find nutritional teachings were valid at all.

And I am thrilled to invite you all back for another week of food, mindset, fitness, all the good things. Today, we have another great reverse interview. I would love to introduce you all to Julia. First, if you’re confused about what a reverse interview is; these are when a Fed and Fit listener or reader writes in with a great question and instead of politely answering their question via email, like they’ve asked me to, I instead invite them onto the podcast to ask over a phone call. Where hopefully we have a conversation that I’m sure benefits more than just the two of us. So that’s kind of the nature of these calls. I’m thrilled to introduce you all today to Julia. She is from Philadelphia, and she is a speech language pathologist. She works with young kids in a school. Welcome to the show, Julia! Julia: Hi! I’m so happy to be here. Cassy Joy: I’m so happy to have you here! Well, like I told you before I started pressing record, or pressed record, I am yours for the next 30 minutes. Julia: Sounds good. Cassy Joy: So the baton is yours. Feel free to pepper me with whatever questions you’ve got. Julia: OK, sounds good. So, I wrote in with a question about; more of a mindset type. I guess looking for mindset advice, about body image. I feel like this is something that’s really out there in the media these days. But I guess I’ll just get into my personal things. Because I’m sure everybody has their own vision of their body and body image, but I’ll just get into mine. I feel like I can remember issues starting as young as 5th grade. I remember even before social media, I was looking into magazines that were like; oh these perfect model girls, and I don’t look that way. And then in middle school, obviously it is the worst for most kids. And I can say that because I work in a middle school. No one is really the shining star. And your bodies are changing so significantly that no one is looking their best. And then through high school and college, I was always a swimmer. The comparison factor there is real, because you're pretty much in a swim suit at all times. So you're not leaving much to the imagination. So I guess fast forward to now. I’m in my mid to late-20s. I feel like I eat a very clean diet. I am aware of what foods I can handle and what I cannot. I definitely control myself in moderation with certain foods. I wouldn’t say I’m completely gluten free or dairy free or anything like that. But I tend to stick on that type of paleo diet mindset type of thing. But I don’t necessarily; I’ll have a piece of cake if it’s there. Cassy Joy: Yeah. Julia: You know what I mean.

She lives in a small town in Iowa with her husband, Joe, and their two adorable little girls, Ainsley, who is 2.5, and Collins, who is 7 months old. The cutest darn names. She is passionate about encouraging other women and sharing honestly about the wonderful, challenging, joyful mess that is motherhood. I love it. You can find her over at Espresso and Cream is the name of her blog. Just EspressoandCream.com. Follow along with her musings on motherhood over on Instagram. Welcome to the show, Madison! Madison Mayberry Hofmeyer: Well thanks so much for having me! I’m excited to talk. Cassy Joy: I am too! So I have to say, Madison and I are on the same larger Beautycounter team page, which is how the two of us connected. And I just always; you know, online, you don’t really know-know people. You kind of get a sense. But I always loved the things that you’ve said. You are always very well poised and encouraging. Especially in these large groups. And then, you and I got to spend some time together in person. I got to meet you in person at a Beautycounter incentive trip. I walked away from that trip, and I think I remember calling my husband. He was asking how it was going, and I had known several of the girls there who had been friends for years. I was like, “oh, it’s great. And there’s this girl Madison, and I just think she is the sweetest thing. And I want to be her real friend.” {laughing} Madison Mayberry Hofmeyer: Oh my gosh! I think I said something similar when I left. I said, “Cassy is even more likable, if it’s possible, in person than she is on her very likable Instagram stories.” {laughs} Cassy Joy: {laughs} That’s so funny! I love it. It was so great to spend some time with you. You are just such a wonderful soul. And I couldn’t wait to introduce you to everybody here. I highly encourage you guys to look up Madison. She’s always sharing wonderful, uplifting things. I know that’s what everybody’s in search of here. And you are in good hands with her. So thank you for coming on the show!

Cassy Joy: Welcome back to another episode of the Fed and Fit podcast. My name is Cassy Joy Garcia. I am your host. And this is the weekly 30-minute food, fitness, and mindset show. Mostly we talk about the last one. But occasional the others sprinkle in. And today is another reverse interview, where a Fed and Fit listener or reader has written in with a great question and invite them to come on the show so we can have a conversation about it. So today I am joined by Rachel. She’s from Durham, North Carolina, where she is an administrative assistant. Welcome to the show, Rachel! Rachel: Thanks Cassy! I’m so excited to be talking to you. Cassy Joy: Likewise. Rachel: So I just wanted to give a little bit of background about myself. I guess mostly my health history before I jump into some questions. Cassy Joy: Yeah. Rachel: So a few years ago, experiencing a lot of digestive issues. Nothing serious enough to really draw attention for running testing, but just enough to feel like something was off. So my primary care doctor at that time just kind of labeled it IBS but didn’t really give me any helpful suggestions. Just kind of left it at that. So I just began exploring on my own, and I wanted to figure out if there were more solutions. So I started off with a Whole30, and that really opened my eyes to cutting out processed foods and just changing the way I was eating. But I was still experiencing some issues after that. So I kind of went to a different doctor. I took a food sensitivity test. I eliminated a long list of foods for the next 6 months a year. A lot of those overlap with kind of a paleo template but included some random vegetables and fruits as well. So it was pretty restrictive for a little bit. Slowly reintroduced stuff. I was experiencing some headaches, as well. So I started to see an acupuncturist who had specialized in Chinese medicine. I was still having, as well, a few more digestive issues. So he said I probably had leaky gut. So I did a month on AIP as well as some supplements to kind of help heal my gut. So I feel like right now I’ve kind of stabilized out. Mostly following a paleo template, but I do eat some gluten free grains. The main things that I’m still sensitive to are gluten and soy. So I’m pretty careful about those. But through the whole journey, I came across the Balanced Bites podcast, and then listening to them I heard about you, Cassy, and started listening to your podcast as well. So just kind of opened my mind to beyond just eliminating foods, to also thinking about quality nutritious foods. So, that’s kind of how I got on this journey.

And also other listeners. I hope you enjoy the reverse interviews that we do here on the show. They’re some of my favorite episodes to record, and they’re some of my favorite ones to share, because I think that it can really be eye opening when you hear about real life experiences and real life questions from real life people. Not that I’m not a real life person, but somebody who hasn’t made holistic nutrition and mindset coaching a part of their job. So anyway, thank you so much. I just wanted to start off today’s show by thanking you for being here. Thank you for tuning in. Thank you for all of your wonderful support. Thanks, of course, to our sponsors.

Our daughter is born. And she could also still be tucked away by the time this episode airs. We’re a couple more weeks; who knows! Her due date is January 13th, this Saturday. So it’s going to be a really fun, exciting ride. I want to tell you guys what you can expect on the podcast through my “maternity leave” coming up. It is not going to look like a leave to you all, at all. My team and I have been working very diligently for the past 6 to; really 9 months to prepare for this. We have regular, brand new recipes coming to the blog. And brand new podcast episodes coming to you here every single week. We’ve already got them recorded. Some really wonderful interviews are coming out. I’ve also recorded a couple of science-type episodes. I know how much you enjoy those. And today’s episode is going to be a mindset episode.

Because it’s one of those things that it’s our do not pass go. Right? It’s priority number one. When it comes to a healthy mindset, often times the missing puzzle piece has nothing to do with food. It has nothing to do with fitness. It has nothing to do with water, rest, stress levels, or anything like that.

Welcome to our weekly 30-minute mindset, health, fitness, nutrition all that good stuff, we like to cover it all show. Today, bringing back an encore guest. I’m really excited about this. Her name is Brianna Battles. And if you caught episode number 126, you were first introduced to her there. She has a wealth of information. She’s a pregnancy and postpartum strength and conditioning coach with just a solid outlook when it comes to preparing our mindset for pregnancy and postpartum. One of my favorite quotes from the first podcast is a really good reminder that pregnancy is temporary, postpartum is forever. And to really make sure that we’re intentional about nurturing our bodies and making sure we’re set up for long-term success for the health of our selves and for our babies. So I’m really thrilled to welcome you back. We have so much more to cover, Brianna. Welcome to the show! Brianna Battles: Hey, thank you so much for having me. I’m really excited to be on here again.

But today we’re going to cover a couple of different topics. Since posting that podcast, I think both Brianna and myself were reached out to by a bunch of folks who listened to the episode and just confirmed how much it resonated with them. And the story of how to really listen to our new body and what that really means. It’s not something that’s necessarily intuitive. And I really wanted to invite her back on so we could follow up on that conversation. Sort of a part two. So we’re going to talk about that today. I also went and saw my very first pelvic floor specialist. I’m running a couple of minutes behind, and it’s because I just got home from my appointment. So it’s really fresh. So I’ve been talking about pelvic health all day! {laughing} Brianna Battles: Oh boy! {laughs} Cassy Joy: Oh boy. It’s actually really excited. I got home, and I told my husband; I can’t wait to tell you all the things I learned! {laughing} Brianna Battles: Oh my gosh. I know my husband things I’m so crazy.

Cassy Joy: Welcome back to another episode of the Fed and Fit podcast. My name is Cassy Joy Garcia; I am your host. I am so stinking excited about today’s episode. I have the distinct privilege of introducing you to the founder of one of my favorite; man, I just love what this company is up to. They’ve been a partner of mine for a while over here on the blog. I’m really excited for you guys to hear their story. Tell you a little bit of back story, and then I’m going to let him tell you in his own words Butcher Box. That’s who we invited on the show today. Founder, Mike Salguero ended up in someone’s living room picking out his very own $400 pile of meat from a cow share. Not just any cow share, either. 100% grass-fed cow. He was instantly hooked on the pure, natural taste, and was thrilled to discover the health advantages of grass-fed beef that they have over any other kind of ordinary grain-fed beef. Mike learned that not everyone has access to grass-fed beef, or their exposure is limited to products, like just ground beef. Currently only 1% of the total beef consumed in the United States is 100% grass-fed. And their goal over at Butcher Box is to make grass-fed beef; now and heritage breed pork and organic chicken, more accessible than ever. Butcher Box delivers 100% grass-fed beef, free-range, organic chicken, and heritage breed pork directly to your door. It comes directly to my door every month. And you can think of them as the neighborhood butcher for modern America. Welcome to the show, Mike! Mike Salguero: Thanks so much for having me. Cassy Joy: Oh my goodness, thank you for coming on. I really am geeking out. I’ve got some good questions for you. I know that grass-fed beef; it is a hot topic. And as people go into the New Year ready to really commit themselves to health and wellness and balance and trying to do better; know better and do better. I know this is coming up in conversations all over the place. So I’m excited for you to share a little bit about yourself. If you don’t mind, tell us a little bit more about yourself, of course. And then why you ventured to start Butcher Box. Mike Salguero: Sure, yeah. So I’m here in Boston, Massachusetts. Our office is in Cambridge in Harvard Square. And I’ve been working on this for two years. Before this, I ran a company called custommade.com. and Custom Made was a market place that connected people that make things custom. So, mostly jewelry and furniture. It connected those individual makers with consumers.

You guys have been asking for; so we’re having a baby. For those of you who don’t know. My husband and I are expecting the birth of our first baby this coming January. She’s due January 13th, which happens to be my grandfather’s birthday. Who knows if she’ll actually come on that day, but it gave me really warm fuzzies when I saw that date. So we have been researching constantly, trying to make sure. Because there’s a lot to get up to speed on when it comes to what kind of equipment do we need for this baby. What kind of medical decisions are we going to make. What kind of textiles do we want around the house. What kind of clothing do we want. What kind of crib? And the questions seem limitless. Something that I went on the hunt for was trying to find some resources that kind of helped summarize, aligned with my core values in terms of reducing total toxic load. Right? Especially for such a young person, an infant, a newborn. But also one that kind of took into consideration comfort of the baby and ease of the family.

Cassy Joy: Welcome back to another episode of the Fed and Fit podcast. I am your host, Cassy Joy Garcia, and I’m really excited to be back today with another listener reverse interview. These listener reverse interviews are such a treat for me. It’s when a Fed and Fit listener, or reader, writes in and asks a really good question via email. And instead of politely obliging them with an answer via email, I ask them if they’ll come on my podcast {laughs}. Normally, a lot of them are sweet enough to indulge me. So today we are chatting with one such person, her name is Jonnie. And she lives in New Orleans, Louisiana. A really neat town, and she works in fundraising for a community hospital there. Jonnie, so the way that these shows work is I’m going to pass the baton off over to her. It’s her show to ask me questions. I know that what we’re going to talk about is going to be of benefit to a lot of folks. So I’m really excited about it. Welcome to the show! Jonnie: Hi, thank you so much for having me. I’m excited. Cassy Joy: Yeah, I'm excited. The pleasure and the treat is mine. Well, tell us a little bit about yourself and then we can get to maybe some of your questions. Jonnie: Yeah, of course. I am based here in New Orleans, and I love it. I’ve been here for about 9 years. I’m originally from Arkansas. A really small town there. And I love everything about New Orleans. It’s people, it’s food, it’s atmosphere. And I do local fundraising here for a nonprofit hospital. Cassy Joy: Awesome. That sounds like such a fun, rewarding job. But I have to tell you; as soon as you said fundraising earlier before we started recording; I don’t know why this has stuck with me for however long it’s been since I was a sophomore in high school. I don’t want to do the math. {laughs} Jonnie: {laughs} Cassy Joy: But I had a Latin teacher who said “it’s fun-duh-raising!” Jonnie: {laughing} Cassy Joy: So it has nothing to do with the podcast, but that has stuck with me. And I just admire that job. I worked with PBS when I was growing up, and with the Girl Scouts. So it’s just such a neat thing that you do. That’s really cool. Jonnie: Thank you. I really love it. It is very rewarding, as you said. Cassy Joy: That’s wonderful. Well tell us a little bit about yourself, and maybe how that kind of plays into some of the questions you’ve got today. Jonnie: Yeah, of course. So I really started intently following you in the past few months. Even though I followed you for several years now. I’m about to turn 34, actually next week. December 19th. Cassy Joy: Whoo! Happy birthday! Jonnie: Thank you.

So today we are chatting with one such person, her name is Jonnie. And she lives in New Orleans, Louisiana. A really neat town, and she works in fundraising for a community hospital there.<br /> <br /> Jonnie, so the way that these shows work is I’m going to pass the baton off over to her. It’s her show to ask me questions. I know that what we’re going to talk about is going to be of benefit to a lot of folks. So I’m really excited about it. Welcome to the show!<br /> <br /> Jonnie: Hi, thank you so much for having me. I’m excited.<br /> <br /> Cassy Joy: Yeah, I'm excited. The pleasure and the treat is mine. Well, tell us a little bit about yourself and then we can get to maybe some of your questions.<br /> <br /> Jonnie: Yeah, of course. I am based here in New Orleans, and I love it. I’ve been here for about 9 years. I’m originally from Arkansas. A really small town there. And I love everything about New Orleans. It’s people, it’s food, it’s atmosphere. And I do local fundraising here for a nonprofit hospital.<br /> <br /> Cassy Joy: Awesome. That sounds like such a fun, rewarding job. But I have to tell you; as soon as you said fundraising earlier before we started recording; I don’t know why this has stuck with me for however long it’s been since I was a sophomore in high school. I don’t want to do the math. {laughs}<br /> <br /> Jonnie: {laughs}<br /> <br /> Cassy Joy: But I had a Latin teacher who said “it’s fun-duh-raising!”<br /> <br /> Jonnie: {laughing}<br /> <br /> Cassy Joy: So it has nothing to do with the podcast, but that has stuck with me. And I just admire that job. I worked with PBS when I was growing up, and with the Girl Scouts. So it’s just such a neat thing that you do. That’s really cool.<br /> <br /> Jonnie: Thank you. I really love it. It is very rewarding, as you said.<br /> <br /> Cassy Joy: That’s wonderful.

We are talking with Angela Mavridis of Tribali foods. She is just such a bright, bubbly, inspiring person who has created a tremendous product. And when I first heard about this product, I was so excited. I could not wait to try it. My friend Diane Sanfilippo originally told me about it. She leads this movement, Tribali foods, their first food products that they’ve come out with are these frozen burger patties. I’m going to tell you all about them. Why she created them, what thoughtful sourcing has gone into the ingredients, how easy they are to make from home. All these wonderful things. But as a nutrition consultant, as a person who has lived this cleaner, trying to fuel my body with the best kinds of foods lifestyle for so long, there has been such a need for really clean, really easy to use, accessible proteins made responsibly. And I’m so thrilled to introduce you today to a lady who is accomplishing that, and she’s doing it so well. Welcome to the show, Angela! Angela Mavridis: Hi, thank you for having me. Cassy Joy: Thank you for coming on! I gave a very brief introduction. You know yourself better {laughs} so would you mind telling us a little bit more about yourself. And then we’ll jump into maybe some of the story of what initially inspired you to create Tribali. Angela Mavridis: Yeah, sure. So, my journey into health and nutrition was one that I call from paleo to confusion and then back again. And that’s because; I was born in Greece and lived there until I was about 6. And then subsequently spent every single summer until I was well into my teens with grandma just eating wholesome real food off the land and the sea. We lived at this beach house right by the water. Right by a fishing village. And every summer; I would spend literally three summers out of the year. Every summer I just felt like the food I was eating just made my body thrive in such a nice way. It could have been also the great vitamin D from the sun exposure. Or the 6 hours of swimming in the ocean. But I have to believe it had to do with food, too. And ironically, back in the States here, dad owned and operated a hamburger fast food restaurant.

So when we jump into some of these geekier episodes, I really try to do my best to make sure that I’m boiling down some of these bigger nutrition and scientific topics into really easy, digestible pieces of information; no pun intended! Or pun intended, I’ll take that credit. So today we’re going to talk about wild seafood. So the name of the show is wild seafood 101. It’s a question I get a lot. Just like I did a podcast episode many moons ago; it’s up there if you want to look for it. But it’s about the importance of grass-fed beef. And the difference between that and conventional beef; what’s the actual difference? So today we’re talking in the same vein. What is the real importance of wild seafood? Why does it matter? Is it just another buzzword? You know, gluten free seems to be a big buzzword lately. Are these gluten free crackers actually healthier for me than another cracker? So what I’m trying to do with the show and some of these especially science-y episodes, is to give you some tools to where you can better navigate and make decisions for yourself and your family. Alrighty! Knowledge is power, right? So let’s jump in and get some knowledge nuggets. Ok, so we’re going to talk about why wild is important. We’re going to talk about why it’s important for our health. What seafood actually does for our health in general. Whether it’s sourced from a wild or a farmed capacity. And then we’re also going to talk about the sustainability piece of the equation. What does that even mean? What is sustainable seafood? And is how wild seafood caught important? How are fish farmed? Let’s kind of review some of those things. We’re going to answer the question, is farmed fish ever better? It’s an interesting question, On today's episode, we're talking Wild Seafood 101!

Fed and Fit podcast is a weekly, 30-minute, mindset, food, fitness, nutrition, all those good things. All those good topics kind of show. And today we are zeroing in on really, overall mindset. But we’re going to touch on food. We’re going to touch on nutrition. We’re going to touch on fitness. And then circle back around to mindset. So what we’re going to talk about today specifically is all about having a healthy mindset for the holidays. This can be a really tricky time period. We roll into the holidays thinking; well, it goes both ways. Maybe three ways. {laughs} Some people approach the holidays, and they think; “ok. Let’s go ahead and take that healthy hat off that I’ve strapped on all year long. We’re going to sit back. We’re going to enjoy the holidays. It will be what it will be. And then come January, we’ll do damage control.” That’s one approach, and I’m not going to say that I haven’t been in that driver’s seat before. Another approach is, we go into the holidays and we think, “Oh, I’ve got my healthy hat strapped on real tight. And I’m just going to keep trucking through. We’re going to have ourselves a healthy, healthy, healthy holiday. And nothing’s going to get in my way.” And then your grandmother makes a piece of pumpkin pie, puts it in front of you, and says, “But I made this for you. It’s your favorite.” And then you eat it, and you feel like your whole plan went out the window. You feel like somebody ripped that healthy hat off your head and threw it away. Now you don’t quite know what to do with yourself. You don’t know; either guilt is introduced. All kinds of ugly, yucky feelings. So that’s one way. And then I would say a third way is; “Well, I never wore a healthy hat so why start now?” {laughs}. You know. It’s the folks who, maybe they haven’t ever really tried to be super conscious about having a healthy holiday and the year prior wasn’t necessarily one where they were focused on a healthy mindset, or nutrition, or fitness, or anything like that. So they look at the holidays, and they think; “why start now? I’ll start that in January when pumpkin pie season is over.” So those are some of the common ways that we walk into the holidays.

It’s going to be short and sweet, so just settle in. We have just a couple of tips. So we’re going to talk today about 5 ways to infuse a little more joy into your day. Ok? These are probably unconventional tips {laughs} that’s really what I wanted to bring you. I didn’t want to bring you something that was obvious. And in fact, my first draft of this list, when I went back and reread it, getting ready to record for today. I thought; nope! That is too obvious! I want to give people something a little more unconventional. A little more practical. If you're listening to this, and you're thinking; I just want to find a way to harness a little more joy. Maybe stay on the upper cut of just having a good day. Right? At the end of the day, we all know here that that’s our choice. How we feel about the day. And at the end of the day, how we respond to things that happen to us. In a lot of ways, we do have a lot of control. That doesn’t mean that our natural emotions don’t have a place. They absolutely have a place, and it’s important to acknowledge those. But there are things that we can do. If you find yourself just kind of in a rut, right? Maybe you're uninspired or you're just finding it really easy to be offended by certain things or people in your life. Goodness; things are just getting to you more than you really feel like they would in certain circumstances. Maybe we’re just due to shake things up, right? So that’s what today’s episode is all about, is to really help you shake things up a little bit. Maybe dust out some corners that we hadn’t thought about in a while. And hopefully what ends up is a little more joy in the day. A little more freshness, you know. An obvious thing that I’m not going to share would be like go out and buy yourself a new pair of stretchy pants; workout pants. I’m not going to give you that kind of advice today. But you know that feeling when you come home with a new pair of tennis shoes or running shoes or something that just signifies that you're going to do something to take care of yourself. You’ve got these shiny new sneakers, and what it means to you.

I am your host, Cassy Joy Garcia. And I am excited for a; you know what, we’re getting back to our roots today. That’s what today’s episode is about. Today is a long overdue mindset focused episode. It’s going to be short and sweet, so just settle in. We have just a couple of tips.<br /> <br /> So we’re going to talk today about 5 ways to infuse a little more joy into your day. Ok? These are probably unconventional tips {laughs} that’s really what I wanted to bring you. I didn’t want to bring you something that was obvious. And in fact, my first draft of this list, when I went back and reread it, getting ready to record for today. I thought; nope! That is too obvious! I want to give people something a little more unconventional. A little more practical.<br /> <br /> If you're listening to this, and you're thinking; I just want to find a way to harness a little more joy. Maybe stay on the upper cut of just having a good day. Right? At the end of the day, we all know here that that’s our choice. How we feel about the day. And at the end of the day, how we respond to things that happen to us. In a lot of ways, we do have a lot of control. That doesn’t mean that our natural emotions don’t have a place. They absolutely have a place, and it’s important to acknowledge those. But there are things that we can do.<br /> <br /> If you find yourself just kind of in a rut, right? Maybe you're uninspired or you're just finding it really easy to be offended by certain things or people in your life. Goodness; things are just getting to you more than you really feel like they would in certain circumstances. Maybe we’re just due to shake things up, right? So that’s what today’s episode is all about, is to really help you shake things up a little bit. Maybe dust out some corners that we hadn’t thought about in a while. And hopefully what ends up is a little more joy in the day. A little more freshness, you know.<br /> <br /> An obvious thing that I’m not going to share would be like go out and buy yourself a new pair of stretchy pants; workout pants. I’m not going to give you that kind of advice today. But you know that feeling when you come home with a new pair of tennis shoes or...

My name is Cassy Joy Garcia. I am your host. This is a weekly, 30-minute mindset, health, food, all those good things show. And I’m really excited today to bring you another reverse interview. And a reverse interview is where I invite a Fed and Fit listener or reader to come onto the show to ask some questions that maybe they wrote in to ask them directly over a conversation, so we can have a nice chat. Hopefully other folks can benefit from the conversation. So today I am welcoming Amanda to the show. She lives in Jacksonville, Florida. She works at an ad agency, and she has two small kids. Welcome to the show, Amanda! Amanda: Thanks, Cassy! Really, really excited. Cassy Joy: Oh, I’m happy to have you here. This is going to be so fun. Feel free to tell folks a little bit more about yourself, and maybe a little background information before we lead into your question. And then really, the show is yours! Amanda: Ok, awesome. So like Cassy said, my name is Amanda. And I live in Jacksonville. My husband is in the military, so we move around kind of a lot. I have two small kids. I also work at an advertising agency, so I am definitely busy, busy, busy all the time. Always running around after my little ones. So I emailed Cassy originally because I have; first of all I have celiac. So I found that out about probably 6 or 7 years ago now. So I’ve always had stomach issues from starting in middle school, probably. And no doctor ever took the time to really figure out what was wrong with me until I got a new doctor. That doctor referred me to a GI doctor, which is the person that found out that I had celiac. So I stopped eating gluten, and my stomach issues, essentially went away. But now, I’m having this issue where now sometimes when I eat I get like an empty burning sensation in the pit of my stomach. And I know that I haven’t eaten any gluten leading up, because I will have made all of my food leading up to that. So I know that it’s not gluten that’s hurting me. And my stomach gets kind of bubbly and I just don’t know if maybe my stomach needs some healing or what the issue is. And also, I wanted to ask you Cassy, too, about maybe three steps or healing your gut for dummies, maybe you could go over that super quickly.

Brigid: Yeah, of course. So, I’m originally from Virginia. I went to Virginia Tech; go Hokies! {laughs} And I basically, my senior year of college I was really struggling with the food that I was trying to eat. I thought that I was eating healthy during the week. I was in a weight training class. And then on the weekends, I just; you know, what every typical college student does. Just drank way too much, and ate way too much. It was honestly making me feel horrible. I thought that it was normal for my stomach to hurt, like 24/7. Basically after every single meal. Once I graduated and got a job, and kind of had to learn to cook for myself, and do things pretty much independently, I decided that that lifestyle was over with, and I needed to figure out kind of what was causing my stomach issues, and how to feel as best as possible. So around last October, I started eating paleo. Mostly paleo. I still don’t eat 100% paleo. It’s definitely a slow transition for me. But I feel so much better.

I am your host, Cassy Joy Garcia. And today is another wonderful reverse interview with the lovely Fed and Fit listener. And if you're unfamiliar; if you're new here, with the reverse interview concept, it’s pretty simple. Fed and Fit listeners and readers write in with really great questions, and when I get an especially good question, instead of responding to their email the way that they’ve asked, or however they’ve contacted me. I’ll ask them if they’ll come on the show so we can chat about it, in the hopes that maybe it helps other folks. So today I’m joined by Elena. She lives in Brooklyn, and she works in communications. She’s also applying for nursing school. Welcome to the show, Elena! Elena: Hi! Thank you so much. I’m very excited to be on this podcast. Cassy Joy: Yay! I’m very excited to have you. Well if you don’t mind telling folks a little bit more about yourself. Your background, and what you wanted to chat about today. Elena: Yeah, absolutely. So I guess in terms of my background and why I contacted you. I have had eczema my whole life, and I’ve also had IBS for most of it, as well. And for the whole time, I’ve had doctors be like, “Your skin has nothing to do with what you eat. We’ll just give you some steroid creams. Take antihistamines, and that will help.” But it has never really helped. And the same thing with the IBS stuff. They’re like, “Well you don’t have celiac, and you don’t have Crohn’s, so just eat a high fiber diet and that will fix it.” But it didn’t, as you will probably not be shocked to know. And so recently I sort of stumbled into; I started reading Practical Paleo, and found this whole scene of wonderful people who have provided so much educational information. And I also found an integrative doctor that I started going to. So I have been doing a low FODMAP paleo-ish diet. And my skin got so much better, it was amazing. It wasn’t perfect, and my doctor was still like, I think we can make some improvements. My stomach got better too, but still not all the way. So the nutritionist that I see had me do the MRT LEAP food sensitivity test. And so I had been eating some white rice, but nothing else.

I am your host, Cassy Joy Garcia. And today is another wonderful reverse interview with the lovely Fed and Fit listener. And if you're unfamiliar; if you're new here, with the reverse interview concept, it’s pretty simple. Fed and Fit listeners and readers write in with really great questions, and when I get an especially good question, instead of responding to their email the way that they’ve asked, or however they’ve contacted me. I’ll ask them if they’ll come on the show so we can chat about it, in the hopes that maybe it helps other folks.<br /> <br /> So today I’m joined by Elena. She lives in Brooklyn, and she works in communications. She’s also applying for nursing school. Welcome to the show, Elena!<br /> <br /> Elena: Hi! Thank you so much. I’m very excited to be on this podcast.<br /> <br /> Cassy Joy: Yay! I’m very excited to have you. Well if you don’t mind telling folks a little bit more about yourself. Your background, and what you wanted to chat about today.<br /> <br /> Elena: Yeah, absolutely. So I guess in terms of my background and why I contacted you. I have had eczema my whole life, and I’ve also had IBS for most of it, as well. And for the whole time, I’ve had doctors be like, “Your skin has nothing to do with what you eat. We’ll just give you some steroid creams. Take antihistamines, and that will help.” But it has never really helped. And the same thing with the IBS stuff. They’re like, “Well you don’t have celiac, and you don’t have Crohn’s, so just eat a high fiber diet and that will fix it.”<br /> <br /> But it didn’t, as you will probably not be shocked to know. And so recently I sort of stumbled into; I started reading Practical Paleo, and found this whole scene of wonderful people who have provided so much educational information. And I also found an integrative doctor that I started going to. So I have been doing a low FODMAP paleo-ish diet. And my skin got so much better, it was amazing. It wasn’t perfect, and my doctor was still like, I think we can make some improvements.

And if you're new to the show, and you're new to reverse interviews, it is just a reader or a listener will write in with a really fabulous question, and instead of answering their question via e-mail, which is what they've asked me to do {laughs}. I instead invite them to come on the show to have a conversation, where we can talk through their question with the hopes that if this goes up on the podcast, it resonates with more folks that are out there. And I really think that is going to be the case today. Kelsey, welcome to the show! Kelsey: Thank you, I appreciate it. Cassy Joy: Yeah, definitely. Well, just out of curiosity, where did you get your degree in petroleum engineering? Kelsey: I went to Texas A&M University. Cassy Joy: Whoop! Kelsey: In College Station. A little birdie told me you went there as well. It was a wonderful place and I enjoyed it. Cassy Joy: I was hopeful. It’s got a great petroleum engineering program, so I was wondering if you're an Aggie. That’s so exciting! And football season is around the corner. Kelsey: I know. I’m so excited. I’ve got to get myself up to a game. I try to go once every season, but we’ll see if that’s going to happen. Cassy Joy: Oh, that’s so good. I actually just had; I’m doing a surprise. I {laughs} guess I really shouldn’t give too many details, because we haven’t announced it yet. But I’m doing a collaborate eBook with three other bloggers. And we’re scheduling the big photo shoot. Because we’re going to do about a week worth of photos together. They’re coming to San Antonio for it. And as soon as the Aggie football schedule was announced, I reached back out, and I was like, “Guys, I’m sorry to be such a Texan right now, but can we not do it on the South Carolina weekend game?” {laughs} Kelsey: {laughs} I think I went to that one, I guess two years ago, because that would have been when we had that. That’s a great game. I think sometimes you have to schedule around Aggie football.

Cassy Joy: Welcome back to another episode of the Fed and Fit podcast. I am your host, Cassy Joy Garcia, owner and founder of Fed and Fit. And today, I’m really excited to bring you guys another reverse interview. And I’m getting more brief with the explanation of what a reverse interview is. But essentially, a fabulous Fed and Fit reader or listener wrote in a with a great question, and instead of having that dialogue via email, I invite this very gracious person to come onto the show to record our conversation with the hopes that it will resonate with other folks out there. And I have a feeling today’s call will do that. So today I am chatting with Jeff. He is a teacher just outside Houston, Texas. And he’s got some great questions stored up. Welcome to the show, Jeff! Jeff: Hey, Cassy! I have a question as far as, I guess the relationship of eating right versus the working out. Just a little bit of background. I’ve been a cyclist for 10 years. Three years ago, I had a major appendectomy, and I lost major weight. Probably more than I should have lost. But being in the hospital isn’t always the best. But I put on all that weight and a little bit extra. And aside from cycling, I really just don’t like doing workouts for the sake of working out. I like having a purpose. So I’m wondering, is it possible just to simply eat better, keep doing what I’m doing as far as athletics, and still expect the weight to come off? Or is there an expectation that you are having to do weights and those kinds of workouts, as well. Cassy Joy: That’s a really good question. How long has this been happening? Where it’s just slowed down a little bit? Jeff: I guess probably the last 6 months or so. Like I said, the appendectomy was 3 years ago. And I got down from my normal of about 170-ish, I got down to 145. And I did a pretty decent job. I had to put some weight back on, obviously. And instead of using it as a way to kind of reset how I was eating, I kind of used it as an excuse of, “Let me add some weight on, add some weight on.” And I stopped keeping track on the scale. Just because I know it’s not always the best way to measure health and weight.

I have Crohn’s disease, and some other autoimmune type stuff. And really have found tremendous help through what we eat. So at our house, we totally believe in the power of food to heal and how important it is for our health. So even with that, we may not always make the best choices. But we try.

Cassy Joy: Welcome back to another episode of the Fed and Fit podcast. My name is Cassy Joy Garcia, I am your host! I am the owner and founder of www.FedandFit.com, author of the Fed and Fit book, and also creator of the Fed and Fit Project online. A food and fitness program. I’m really excited about today’s episode. I have invited a fabulous listener to come on the show today for a reverse interview. If this is your first introduction to a reverse interview, I’ll briefly tell you what that is. A reverse interview is when a reader, or a listener, writes in with a great question. And instead of emailing them back or responding to their question like they’ve asked, I invite them to come on my podcast to record their question and our conversation. And it’s so nice when they say yes. {laughs} So I ask folks to come on when I really think their question could resonate with other listeners out there. So today I’m excited to introduce you guys to Emily. Emily is an interior designer. I’m trying to harness some of those skills coming up really soon, Emily. And she lives in the Chicago area. Welcome to the show, Emily! Emily: Thank you so much for having me. This is such an honor that I get to be on your podcast. And thank you for even just trusting me to kind of take the reins and ask you whatever I want. Cassy Joy: Oh my gosh, I’m so excited! These are so much fun for me. Well that’s exactly it. I guess I left that off. Emily is going to interview me, and ask whatever she wants. I’m her interview; oh gosh. Those words. They always escape me. Interviewee? I don’t know what I am. {laughs} but I’m at your disposal for the next 30 minutes. So any questions you have, I’d love to chat. Emily: Awesome. So yeah, today I wanted to kind of focus on navigating food sensitivities, food allergies, or maybe someone that might be starting a new health program. Kind of like your 28-day Fed and Fit program. Where you might eliminate some foods you might typically eat, and how to handle some of those restrictions when you're dining out. Or, at a bridal shower, or wedding, or business dinner. All those types of social interactions over food that I think many of us with restrictions maybe get a little nervous that we don’t want ...

When I first heard about this piece of technology, I think my jaw actually dropped. I was like; no way, this actually exists! This is so neat. I am so excited today to welcome Shireen Yates, owner and founder of Nima! And this little gadget; she’s going to tell you much more about it. {laughs} She knows the story better than I do! About how everything came into play and how the really incredible Nima gluten sensor is now available to us today. But if you guys caught the review I did on my blog, I reviewed the Nima sensor because it’s this little pocket-sized piece of technology. It’s incredibly slick. It pairs with your phone, and allows you, if you are extremely sensitive to gluten, or even have an allergy like folks who have celiac, to be able to test food in real time and get an answer as far as is there actual gluten, the gluten protein, found in my food. Because so much of what’s out there, even though it’s labeled as gluten free, there could be cross contamination. And it’s really; it’s an answered prayer in a lot of ways for many folks. Because we don’t have to wonder. We don’t have to wait until we get home and we get that stomachache. So it’s just such a neat piece of technology, and I’m really excited.

Cassy Joy: Welcome back to another episode of the Fed and Fit podcast. I am your host, Cassy Joy Garcia. And this is the show where we talk about a lot of things related to food, fitness; but mostly mindset. You know, the piece that surrounds it all. And that is exactly what we’re going to talk about today. Thank you for being patient with me. Last week was a crazy week. So we have an episode down, but we’re back up today with a mindset episode, and we’ve got some really, really great ones lined out for not only the rest of the month of August, but on through the rest of the summer. Ok, so today we’re going to talk. It’s a relatively short episode, I think. But we’re going to cover the concept of healing unhealthy comparisons. And it’s an interesting topic. It’s one that’s been rattling around in my mind for a while. And I think that what I’m really speaking to. Is when we think about looking online, looking to social for friends. For friendships. For companionship. For partners. People who we feel like we can identify with online, whether that person also has children. Or whether that person also does paleo. We want to think that because we have maybe one common ground with somebody, that I think a part of our human nature is to desire to have then all common grounds with that person. And what can come from that, is sort of an unhealthy relationship. Usually in our own heads. About where we start comparing ourselves to that person. How are we measuring up to this person that we’ve identified with? So let’s say in the context of parenthood. Let’s say if you are a mom, and you see somebody else online who also has two kids. And maybe they’re the same ages as you. And maybe they are also working in the blog world. But they seem, for whatever reason, to just be a little bit better than you at certain things. Or at least that’s how we see it. We it as, gosh they get so much done. It seems like they’re house is always so much cleaner. And it seems like they’re able to give more time to their business. And it seems like they’re able to have more one on one time with their children, and their husband, and their families. And they always just seem to have these things. And it seems like maybe their nutrition is more on game.

I am your host, Cassy Joy Garcia. And this is the show where we talk about a lot of things related to food, fitness; but mostly mindset. You know, the piece that surrounds it all. And that is exactly what we’re going to talk about today. Thank you for being patient with me. Last week was a crazy week. So we have an episode down, but we’re back up today with a mindset episode, and we’ve got some really, really great ones lined out for not only the rest of the month of August, but on through the rest of the summer.<br /> <br /> Ok, so today we’re going to talk. It’s a relatively short episode, I think. But we’re going to cover the concept of healing unhealthy comparisons. And it’s an interesting topic. It’s one that’s been rattling around in my mind for a while. And I think that what I’m really speaking to. Is when we think about looking online, looking to social for friends. For friendships. For companionship. For partners. People who we feel like we can identify with online, whether that person also has children. Or whether that person also does paleo. We want to think that because we have maybe one common ground with somebody, that I think a part of our human nature is to desire to have then all common grounds with that person. And what can come from that, is sort of an unhealthy relationship. Usually in our own heads. About where we start comparing ourselves to that person. How are we measuring up to this person that we’ve identified with?<br /> <br /> So let’s say in the context of parenthood. Let’s say if you are a mom, and you see somebody else online who also has two kids. And maybe they’re the same ages as you. And maybe they are also working in the blog world. But they seem, for whatever reason, to just be a little bit better than you at certain things. Or at least that’s how we see it. We it as, gosh they get so much done. It seems like they’re house is always so much cleaner. And it seems like they’re able to give more time to their business. And it seems like they’re able to have more one on one time with their chil...

Cassy Joy: Welcome back to another episode of the Fed and Fit Project. I’m am your host, Cassy Joy Garcia, of Fed and Fit. And today I’m joined by a lovely guest. Her name is Phoebe Lapine. Phoebe is a food and health writer, gluten free chef, wellness personality, culinary instructor, and speaker born and raised in New York City, where she continues to live and eat. Great places to eat there. On her award-winning blog, Feed Me Phoebe, she shares recipes for healthy comfort food and insights about balanced healthy lifestyle choices, beyond what's on your plate. Her forthcoming memoir, The Wellness Project, chronicles her journey with Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and how she finally found the middle ground between health and hedonism by making one lifestyle change one month at a time. Phoebe, I’m so excited to have you on the show. Thank you for coming on today! Phoebe Lapine: Oh thank you for having me. Cassy Joy: Absolutely. It’s a true pleasure. I’m excited to hear about your story. And I love this, one lifestyle change one month at a time. It’s something that I tackle in a portion of my business. And I think it’s very, very wise. But I told you before the show I was going to hand the baton off to you, because I would like for you to tell a little bit more about your story. Nobody knows you like you do. So if you don’t mind, I would love to hear a little bit about your health journey, a little bit about your book, your blog, and I guess some of your biggest takeaways. Phoebe Lapine: Absolutely. So, my health journey and my food career journey actually started around the exact same time. But it took a few years for them to kind of intersect and combine into one. So I started blogging a year after graduating college, just kind of on a whim. At the time, my food outlook didn’t really have anything to do with the nourishment from each part of a meal, and more had to do with the comfort of cooking and the social nourishment it gave me. But around the same time when I was leaving my corporate job to pursue cooking professionally and a whole variety of odd food jobs, I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. Which is, as you know and maybe as some of your listeners...

And so I, instead of answering their question via e-mail, I like to invite them to come onto the podcast, to ask their question over a recorded call. Because, I have a hunch that Casie's questions, and maybe the conversation we’re going to have, is a really relatable one that I think is going to resonate with a bunch of folks. So, she's coming on the show. She's going to be interviewing me, in some regard. And we’re going to have some good discussions. So to give you a little bit of background info on Casie. She lives in New Jersey. She’s a Jersey girl. She's a high school counselor, and she's getting married this coming October. Welcome to the show, Casie! Casie: Thank you for having me. I’m very excited. Cassy Joy: Oh good, I’m very excited to have you here, as well. That was just a very short introduction. But feel free to share a little bit more about yourself, and maybe what’s the theme of your question for today. Casie: Well, I guess my theme for today.

This is just a true honest review. I have been a consumer of the Skimm for a while. It's kind of a setup as the newsletter, you plug your e-mail in and they send you daily newsletters with kind of little bite sized pieces of information of what kind of news is going on. And I really like the way that they phrase things. They make it really interesting and easier to understand. And I like having one single source for a piece of some of the news. It's more of just a highlight reel versus a fact-finding exercise. Though they do link to really great articles. Anyway, so I have been a consumer of this Skimm articles for a very long time, and they reached out letting me know that they are currently doing a no excuses campaign on health care. And the idea behind this campaign is they really want to help educate folks on what really is the landscape of health care right now, particularly in the United States. It’s ever changing it's very confusing. And so they asked if I was interested in participating in the campaign, and I said absolutely. And I thought that a great way to participate would be to do a dedicated podcast episode. So today's show is about healthcare 101. So what I've done is I have combined some of my research with the research that the Skimm has put together over on their website.

Cassy Joy: Welcome back to another episode of Fed and Fit podcast. I am really excited about today's episode. I am chatting with Shelly Kreuder, also known as Michelle Kreuder, who runs 2XL Premium Angus, LLC. It is a grass-fed beef ranch up in Iowa. And to give you guys some back story on how we invited Shelly onto the show today, Amber Link, who many of you already know, is a trusted member of my team. She’s the project manager for the Fed and Fit Project. She attended PaleoFx, and acted as my proxy, because I could not be there this year. And she got to meet Shelly. And she was really impressed by their story, how they decided to go from more conventional ranching and farming to 100% grass-fed beef. And so she thought it would be a really neat story to invite her to come on the show, share a little bit about how they made that transition, what went into the decision process, and what day to day life really looks like for the guys. So, welcome to the show, Shelly! I’m so excited to have you! Shelly Kreuder: I’m really glad to be here, Cassy. Cassy Joy: Yeah, this is a lot of fun. We really worked for this show today, so {laughs} I’m especially excited about it. It was one of those; I was trying to tell Shelly. The very first time I ever signed up for a podcast, I was being interviewed by my friend Liz Wolfe, and we weren’t close friends back then, but it took me a long time to figure out how to work Skype. I will always love that episode so much because I felt like we really earned it. {laughs} So, anyways. I’m excited to chat with you today, and I’m excited for you to share your story with the Fed and Fit listeners. If you wouldn't mind, tell folks a little bit more about who you are, what you do, and how you really came to be in the business that you guys are in today. Shelly Kreuder: Ok. Actually, we moved to Iowa back in 2006. We were originally from northwest Illinois, and we farmed conventionally there on my husband’s family farm that had been in the family for over 100 years. And we decided to uproot, and come to Iowan. All of our children went to Iowa State University. And we wanted to be closer to them, and there was also a lot of; well, many reasons we decided to move to a larger farm in Souther...

I am really excited about today's episode. I am chatting with Shelly Kreuder, also known as Michelle Kreuder, who runs 2XL Premium Angus, LLC. It is a grass-fed beef ranch up in Iowa. And to give you guys some back story on how we invited Shelly onto the show today, Amber Link, who many of you already know, is a trusted member of my team. She’s the project manager for the Fed and Fit Project. She attended PaleoFx, and acted as my proxy, because I could not be there this year. And she got to meet Shelly. And she was really impressed by their story, how they decided to go from more conventional ranching and farming to 100% grass-fed beef. And so she thought it would be a really neat story to invite her to come on the show, share a little bit about how they made that transition, what went into the decision process, and what day to day life really looks like for the guys. So, welcome to the show, Shelly! I’m so excited to have you!<br /> <br /> Shelly Kreuder: I’m really glad to be here, Cassy.<br /> <br /> Cassy Joy: Yeah, this is a lot of fun. We really worked for this show today, so {laughs} I’m especially excited about it. It was one of those; I was trying to tell Shelly. The very first time I ever signed up for a podcast, I was being interviewed by my friend Liz Wolfe, and we weren’t close friends back then, but it took me a long time to figure out how to work Skype. I will always love that episode so much because I felt like we really earned it. {laughs} So, anyways. I’m excited to chat with you today, and I’m excited for you to share your story with the Fed and Fit listeners. If you wouldn't mind, tell folks a little bit more about who you are, what you do, and how you really came to be in the business that you guys are in today.<br /> <br /> Shelly Kreuder: Ok. Actually, we moved to Iowa back in 2006. We were originally from northwest Illinois, and we farmed conventionally there on my husband’s family farm that had been in the family for over 100 years. And we decided to uproot, Cassy Joy Garcia clean 36:16 Ep. 111: How-to Inspire vs. Convince https://fedandfit.com/ep-111-inspire-vs-convince/ Tue, 13 Jun 2017 16:27:07 +0000 http://fedandfit.com/?p=12602 On today's episode, we're talking about how-to inspire vs. convince another person of something.

Cassy Joy: And we're back with another episode of the Fed and Fit podcast. Thank you guys so much for dialing in this week, and maybe every week. I was recently listening to a podcast, and the host of the show gave a special shout out to anybody who was listening to episodes; and episode after episode, kind of Netflix style. So I want to hat-tip out to anybody, if anybody is out there listening to the show in that regard. Goodness. More power to you. That’s a lot of my voice in your ear {laughs}. And I am honored. So thank you so much for the privilege to chat with you guys every week. So, today we're going to talk about; you know, I have to be honest. Today’s show was supposed to be different. I was supposed to be {laughs} I was supposed to write an episode about the five pieces of advice to ignore. And while I still think that's a great episode idea, and I have lots of notes on it, when I was typing out my thoughts on that episode, another topic that is kind of a burr in my saddle right now kept coming out and I kept trying to fit that other thing into the five pieces of advice to ignore. So I said; “Forget it. I’m just going to do the show that I want to do.” And so today we're going to talk about something that is near and dear to my heart. And I'm not bringing it up; I was really hesitant to record this show, because I don't want any one person to feel bad, or to feel singled out, or anything in that regard when it comes to today's show. It's not that there are any; I’m not trying to shame anybody if they are doing this thing that we're going to talk about. I just want to shed light on an alternative way of going about life. Not going about life; that’s way too grand. But an alternative way of maybe communicating with other people. And I hope that it lightens the load. I hope that things become easier for folks. And overall, I hope this is just a casual inspiring solution for folks who may be looking for it. So, what we're going to talk about today is the difference between inspiring a person and convincing a person. Ok? Now these are two very distinct, very different concepts that have two very distinct, very predictable outcomes. OK? And where does this come from? Why is this showing up in the Fed and Fit podcast?

Cassy Joy: Welcome back to another episode of the Fed and Fit Project. My name is Cassy Joy Garcia. I am your host for today and pretty much every day {laughs} here on the show. I am really excited about today's episode. We're going to be answering a question that I get quite a bit. And I’ve put it off for far too long. So today we're going to zero in on a really fun nutrition science topic. We’re going to talk about white rights versus brown rice. We’re going to hear the debate. Talk about whether it’s paleo or not. Talk about the anatomy of rice. Goodness, what else are we going to talk about? How white rice is made. Why is everyone all a sudden eating it, if you follow folks on social media. The nutritional benefits of white rice. And how to know if it’s right for you. So long term listeners may be excited. I know that you guys really like these more science-y episodes. So I'm really excited to jump into this with you. Ok, let’s go ahead and get started. First, let's talk about the anatomy of rice. I think it's important when we talk about anything nutrition science related that we get a pretty basic understanding of the general landscape. Right Whether that is, if you guys have a copy of my Fed and Fit book, which can be found at Barnes and Noble, all bookstores; what is it called? Books a Million. Of course, also on Amazon. It's available for Amazon prime. But if you have a copy of my book, and you happen to have read the first part of the book, I do a lot of background nutrition talking. You know, our basic biology. Because I think it's important. Thinking about, for example, the three phases of digestion. Before we talk about what goes on with food in our body and why are some foods great for us and other foods not so great for us, where has there been a misstep, what can we work at healing. Before we talk about that stuff, it’s a really good idea to just understand basic digestion. What happens in the body when we chew. When we eat. What goes on in our brain. What goes on in the three phases? So, in that same tone, I couldn't help but when I was writing notes for today's episode. We were going to talk about brown rice versus white rice, I couldn't help but also talk about just very basic anatomy. So bear with me.

Bethany: Just own up to it. Cassy Joy: I did. I had to own where my brain went just then. But I just love these episodes. We’re doing another reverse interview today where I have invited Bethany. She is in Jacksonville, Florida, to come on the show today for a reverse interview. For those of you who are new here, this is where a Fed and Fit listener or reader will write in with a great question.

I was visiting family in Jacksonville, and we were there for about 4 days. And I got a little twitchy; it’s hard for me to be away from work for that long. And so I thought a fun to do would be to do a quick meet up. So I posted; I think it was just on Snapchat. It was some place… Bethany: Yeah, I think it was Snapchat. I think that’s where I found you.

This couple has been living and working in the paleo world for nearly 10 years, helping to educate and empower clients on their personal journeys to optimal health. Welcome to the show, Adam and Vanessa! Vanessa Lambert: Hi, thank you Cassy. It’s so nice to be here! Adam Lambert: Yeah, thanks for having us. Cassy Joy: Of course. It’s a pleasure to have you guys. That was a very brief introduction, and what you guys do is very hard to sum up in just two sentences. So I would love it if you would elaborate a little bit more, and tell folks about the great work you're doing. Vanessa Lambert: Awesome. Yeah, we’d love to. So as you mentioned in the intro, we’ve been in the paleosphere for a long time, starting with Robb Wolf up in Chico at his gym. We kind of stumbled into his gym randomly, and that opened up a whole new world for us. We’ve kind of been riding that wave for almost a decade now of really understanding how to create the best lives for ourselves, and also for our clients. Over the years, we’ve just really realized it’s not just one thing that’s really going to get people there. It’s not just going to be diet. It’s not just going to be exercise. It’s really about an outlook, and how you live your life, and what’s important to you. So we’ve really created Bee the Wellness as a way to kind of encompass all of those things. And really to embrace the fact that there isn’t going to be a one-size fits all solution, but that we’re all going to be juggling all the pieces of our wellness all the time. And sometimes things are going to be more important. Like, we’re going to be more focused on our fitness. Or we’re going to be more focused on our diet. But what we really wanted to do was create an opportunity for you to h...

Her name is Kimberly, and she’s actually a member of the Fed and Fit Project online. Kimberly lives in East Texas; specifically Athens, Texas. She is a hobby bee keeper, and loves to garden on her, just a few, 230 acres that she and her husband has there. She loves to spend her time outside when she’s not traveling for work. I’m so excited to have her on the call today. She’s a wonderful person. Welcome to the show, Kim! Kimberly: Thanks. Thanks for having me. I’m looking forward to it. Cassy Joy: Absolutely; likewise. I would love it; I guess I should briefly talk about, for new listeners, what a reverse interview is. So Kimberly wrote in with a really wonderful question via email. Though I really love to answer those, most questions via email, hers was so great that I thought it would be perfect for her and I to have a conversation on Skype, record it, and then possibly publish it to the podcast in case other listeners out there can identify with where Kim is at. And then could possibly benefit from the conversation. So these reverse interviews are where I invite Fed and Fit podcast listeners and readers to come on the show and give them essentially the mic, and the baton to run the show and ask whatever questions she’s got of me. So that’s kind of the background. But thanks so much for coming on, Kim. Do you want to introduce yourself a little bit more? Tell us a little bit more about yourself, and what some of your questions are. Kimberly: Well you summed it up pretty well. Thanks again for having me, first of all. I do live on 230 acres in the middle of nowhere, and I do travel during the week and at home on the weekends. It’s just enjoying the outdoors with my husband, and working to just keep everything running at our home. So that’s just a little extra about me.

Cassy Joy: Welcome back to another episode of the Fed and Fit podcast. I’m very excited about today’s episode. I’m welcoming one of my nutrition heroes to the show today. His name is Robb Wolf. You’ve probably heard of him. He’s a former research biochemist, a health expert, and author of the New York Times’ bestseller, The Paleo Solution; and, his brand new book, Wired to Eat. He has been a review editor for the Journal of Nutrition and Metabolism, and Journal of Evolutionary Health. He serves on the board of directors of Specialty Medical Clinic in Reno, Nevada. And is a consultant for the Naval Special Welfare Resilience program. Wolf is also a former California state powerlifting champion, and holds the rank of blue belt in Brazilian Ju-Jitsu. I hope I said that right. I always mispronounce Ju-Jitsu. Robb Wolf: Yep. Cassy Joy: He lives in Reno, Nevada with his wife Nikki, and daughters Zoe and Sagan. Welcome to the show, Robb! Robb Wolf: Huge honor to be here. I always feel like I should be taller than 5’9” with a bio like that, so thank you. Cassy Joy: {laughs} Oh, well you are larger than life. That’s definitely for sure. Thank you so much for coming on. I think Diane said it best, Diane Sanfilippo, when your book first came out. She said something along the lines of, “I’m so excited, it’s been a long time, I can’t wait to see what else you have to teach us.” And that really is how I look to all of your work. I’ve heard you speak several times, and it’s one of those where I furiously take mental notes. So thank you so much for making time. I would love it if you would just share with folks. The Paleo Solution came out in 2010. And I still have memories. I’ve been following a paleo template since about, the past 8 to 9 years. And your book was one of the very first out there. I’m sure you hear that all the time. But it really was influential. So what have you been up to since then, aside from all the research and work that has gone into Wired to Eat?

So, Alyssa is, at this point I’m going to go ahead and call you a veteran Project member. {laughs} Alyssa: {laughs} Well thanks. Cassy Joy: Oh, yeah. Thank you. When did you join the project? Alyssa: I officially joined in February. With the February month. Cassy Joy: Ok, got it. With the February group. So she joined in February, and she’s been really submerged in the material, in the community group, and everything. And just been doing such a great job. And we really wanted to bring somebody on so you could hear about the project from her eyes. So I’ve just got some questions for her, but I’m excited to learn from her. And that’s kind of the fun part about the Project, and the community. Everybody has their own takeaways that they pull from stuff. And there’s always something you could learn at every turn and every corner. So, to kick things off, I would love to hear straight from Alyssa; why did you decide to join the Fed and Fit Project? Oh, and I guess should introduce. For new listeners here, who are not familiar.

She just released her new book; Happy Weight; Unlocking Body Confidence Through Bioindividual Nutrition and Mindfulness; which we’re going to talk about today.

Today is another fabulous interview; I have invited Daniele Della Valle. She is a certified nutrition therapy practitioner, self-love and mindfulness coach. She is an avid food and nutrition educator; you can find her teaching classes in her community creating workshops for women, and constantly debating the depths of nutrition information and food policy. She just released her new book; Happy Weight; Unlocking Body Confidence Through Bioindividual Nutrition and Mindfulness; which we’re going to talk about today. Daniele lives in Vancouver, Washington, on her homestead; which is one of my dreams, with her husband and their growing their own organic food, and they spend all their free time outdoors with friends and family. Welcome to the show, Daniele!<br /> <br /> Daniele Della Valle: Thank you, thank you so much for having me. I’m really grateful.<br /> <br /> Cassy Joy: Oh my; I’m very grateful, thank you so much. And listeners, of course, weren’t listening when you and I first got on the call where I explained that I have a cold. {laughs} I’m on the tail end of a cold, so if I sound a little funny, it’s not your speakers, it’s me.<br /> <br /> Daniele Della Valle: {laughs}<br /> <br /> Cassy Joy: But we should be fine. Daniele is going to do most of the talking {laughs}. But I didn’t want to reschedule because I really; I’m so excited about having you on the show, and talking specifically about some of the things that we’ve got lined up. Because there is such a need.

Cassy Joy: Welcome back to another episode of the Fed and Fit podcast. I am your host, Cassy Joy Garcia. I am so excited to have you here today. We are going back to a very traditional style podcast. When I first started the Fed and Fit podcast, just about every episode, then we went into every other episode, revolved around some sort of fun nutrition science type topic, where I would dive into what I thought, I don’t know, were really neat topics, whether it was hydration or stress; or goodness, sleep. We’d break it down into kind of a fun 101-type show. You know; stress 101; hydration 101. So what I want to talk about today, while I have a number of fabulous interviews lined up for you guys that we’re going to go over in the next month; today I thought I would do something very seasonal specific and talk about seasonal allergies. So today’s show is about seasonal allergies 101. We’re going to demystify this. Right now, we are just kind of at the very beginning of spring, and this is really where a lot of folks’ seasonal allergies start to feel triggered, and they experience some of the runny nose, and the congestion, and maybe some of the headaches, the itchy eyes or the sore throat; whatever it is. You just feel like you have to survive it. And if you can’t tell in my own voice, I’m kind of recovering from some of that myself. So I thought that was a really good topic maybe to jump into. I’m a firm believer that knowledge is power. I’ve said that in a lot of different avenues, and today is no different; this topic is no different. I think let’s understand; let’s dive into maybe some of the science of what happens, why we have allergies; why some folks have some allergies more than others. And then talk about some of the options; things that we can do, whether it is over the counter, or working with a physician, or lifestyle practices. Things that we can do to reduce what feels like this incredible seasonal burden. So let’s get into it! Let’s talk about seasonal allergies 101. Today's episode is about Seasonal Allergies 101!

It’s an honor to be here Cassy. I just want to say I love your middle name.

So I love your middle name; I love what you're about; I’m excited to be on this podcast and talk about some health hacking.<br /> <br /> Cassy Joy: Awesome! Man, I’m pumped. That’s exciting. You’re getting me all excited, TJ! That’s really fun. Well I can’t wait to jump into these things that we’re going to talk about. Before we get into some questions; we’ve got some really interesting questions for you guys today. But before we get to that, will you tell folks a little bit more about yourself, your background, and what keeps you busy and entertained in this professional world.<br /> <br /> TJ Anderson: Sure thing.

Jess Gaertner: He’s a handful; you saw him. {laughs} Cassy Joy: He is so cute! Jess Gaertner: He’s a mini Gus. But he’s different though because he has some color to him. Cassy Joy: Mm-hmm. Jess Gaertner: He’s precious. Cassy Joy: He does. He’s got a little badger in him. Jess Gaertner: Yes. Cassy Joy: The Great Pyrenees; if anybody listening doesn’t know what we’re talking about; Great Pyrenees are these great big polar bear-looking dogs, and we have a 4-year-old at home. And he’s mostly white; he’s got some blonde spots. And then their other coloration is called badger where they have these big, really cool; almost St. Bernard kind of spots on them. And Ollie’s got a couple of those. He’s so cute. He’s precious. Jess Gaertner: Did Gus have the crimped; like when he gets wet on his ears, does his hair crimp up? Cassy Joy: Yes.

We’re back with another episode of the Fed and Fit podcast. My name is Cassy Joy Garcia; I am your host. I am the owner, and the author, and the founder of http://FedandFit.com; the author of Fed and Fit the book, which is available in stores nationwide. You can find them in Barnes and Noble, and currently in Costco. And I like to give these brief introductions now, because we are having newer and wonderful faces show up here at the podcast who are finding us organically through iTunes. And they’re finding us because current listeners are leaving reviews in iTunes; so thank you so much for doing that, and welcome to all of the new faces; or I guess I should say new ears. {laughs} I’m excited to have you. What we like to talk about is health and wellness from a 50,000 foot view sometimes, but every once in a while we like to zero in, answer some very direct questions. And today’s episode really speaks to that part of the show. I like to do occasionally, sometimes I get on a roll and I do a whole bunch of them {laughs} I like to do what I call listener reverse interviews. And this is where a listener of the Fed and Fit podcast, or a reader of my blog or book, writes in with a question. And I get a lot of questions via emails, and I like to respond to all of them. But every once in a while, I get a really good question, and my response back to these sweet people is; this is a great question; how about I record the answer I give you over Skype. {laughs} And they graciously accept, and so today’s is that. And the reason I want to record the answer over a phone is I think that these questions are some that more people have. There’s more than just the young lady we’re talking with today; her name is Bailey. It’s probably more than Bailey out there that’s wondering some of these things. So I wanted everybody to be able to benefit from this type of conversation. So that’s the point of these reverse interviews; it’s really one of my favorite parts of this podcast, and I hope you’re enjoying them as well.

Cassy Joy: Welcome back to another episode of the Fed and Fit podcast. Today, I am so excited to bring you another reverse interview. And if you are a new listener here, I’ll briefly describe what I mean by that {laughs} because it’s probably a new concept. So a reverse interview; this concept is an idea that came to me when I was emailing with some really wonderful folks who had some great questions. And of course, I always make a point to answer all the questions. Because there’s nothing worse than having your question go unanswered. And when folks would ask really good questions that I thought more people could benefit from, maybe the conversation or the answers, it dawned on me that maybe I should invite them to come onto a Skype call {laughs} and we’ll record the conversation, and if everything turns out well could possibly publish it as a podcast episode. And it kind of is the idea that I’m inviting a Fed and Fit reader/listener to come on the show and interview me with whatever pressing questions that they have; with the hopes that it resonates with more than just then. And if it doesn’t, then that’s awesome. I’m happy to have helped one person {laughs}. So that is the concept. Today, I’m joined by the lovely Nina. Welcome to the show, Nina. Nina: Hi, thank you for having me Cassy. Cassy Joy: Oh, thanks for coming on. I’ll tell you guys briefly about Nina, and then the way that these shows work is that I will pass the microphone; not actually because Nina and I are not in the same room, {laughs} but I will give her the baton, give her the floor really to ask whatever questions she’s got. And she’s got me for the next 30-ish minutes; maybe less, maybe a little bit more; who knows at this point. Nina: {laughs} Cassy Joy: So just to tell you briefly; she lives in San Marcos, Texas, which is amazing because we’re practically neighbors. I’m in San Antonio, Texas, so we’re just about 45 minutes from each other. And she is a lab tech there; that’s one of her primary things that she does in town, and she also coaches the gold fit classes.

Episode 93 Transcription On today’s episode, we’re talking about how to avoid the feeling like we’ve lost control of our day, and the things we can do right now to get our day back on track. Cassy Joy: Welcome back t another episode of the Fed and Fit podcast. I am your hostess, my name is Cassy Joy Garcia. I am the blogger and the author and the nutrition consultant; gosh, what else do I do? The podcaster, and the recipe developer, and the program coach behind the brand Fed and Fit. You can find me on the web over at http://FedandFit.com. And then you can also find my book in stores nationwide right now, it’s called; you guessed it! Fed and Fit. You can find it on shelves at Barnes and Noble, you can find it on Amazon, and also in Costco right now nationwide, which is pretty dang cool if you ask me. I am pretty excited about today’s episode. We are getting back to one of the real; I guess original purposes behind this podcast was really to talk about mindset. I like to sprinkle; between a bunch of really fun interviews, and every once in a while we get really geeky and we get really science-y into some really interesting topics, I also like to sprinkle in some mindset shows where we just talk about how to maintain a healthy, positive mindset. If you’re a new listener here, you know that I’ve been doing a little bit more of this towards the beginning of the year, the beginning of 2017, because this seems to be the season when we set a lot of expectations for ourselves, and then if things don’t go exactly as planned, we almost want to throw the baby out with the bathwater, right? We’re like, well, that’ didn’t go exactly as I planned so let’s go back to where we were before. I’m going to learn nothing from this, and we’re just going to have to start all over again next January, or {laughs} whenever the timing is. So, today’s episode we’re just going to zero in. we’re not going to be that grand and talk about resolutions or anything, but I just want to zero in on a very small, very approachable topic that I think is relevant to most everybody. So we’re going to talk about how to salvage an almost lost day. Now, what do I mean by that. Think about those days when you wake up, and you’ve got a really good idea of what you want to do in the day, or maybe you have some hopes. You have some hopes, your feet hit the ground, you get out of bed, you have that cup of coffee in your hand, and you think to yourself; “Yes! This is going to be a really good day. I’m going to do all kinds of awesome things, I’m going to feel so accomplished. Maybe I’ll even squeeze in a workout and I’m probably going to eat really well because I’ve been building some good habits. It’s going to be gravy!” I’m one of those people; and maybe not everybody is like this, but I tend to always wake up thinking, “This is it! This is going to happen! It’s all going to happen.” Instead of the opposite. And then real life comes into play, right? And then sometimes the day takes off, and all of those tasks that I had in mind that I wanted to accomplish start getting pushed further and further down the timeline as I get distracted with other things that I have to do. And they feel really important. They feel like tasks that I need to focus on as well, but for whatever reason you get that kind of like you missed something in your day. You know what I mean? I think, when I talk about this, I think about for example my mom. She is such an amazing worker. She’s got a great work ethic. The girl just works so hard, and she works really smart. On today's episode, we’re talking about how to avoid the feeling like we’ve lost control of our day and the things we can do right now to get our day back on track. - We're back with our 93rd episode of the Fed+Fit Podcast!

Cassy Joy: Welcome back to another episode of the Fed and Fit podcast. Today I’m joined by a very special guest; we’re going to talk about a very interesting topic. His name is Walid Abdul-Waham, and he is the pointy tip of the spear when it comes to bringing camel milk available to markets. I’m going to tell you a little bit about Walid, and then I will allow him to introduce himself more thoroughly. So a little bit of his back-story that I know if, is he was visiting his family in his home town of Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, looking for raw milk. He was approached by a friend with a plastic bag of camel milk, of all things. Then he quickly realized camel’s milk was being used medicinally in the Middle East and the US for complex health problems. We’re going to learn all about that. When Walid moved to California, he appreciated how people valued a healthy lifestyle. He realized that this was the perfect place to start a camel milk company. After selling camel milk at mosques and ethnic food festivals, Walid’s business plan won the Marcia Israel award; did I say that correct, Walid? Walid Abdul-Waham: That’s right, yeah. Cassy Joy: {laughs} Yes! Nailed it. From USC. So he decided to leave his corporate real estate position and begin his camel adventure. Having made the big commitment, he went courting the world trying to spark camel milk revolution, and found the greatest and most friendly people. While looking for US camel herders in the Midwest, he came across a group known for being polite and down to earth. A group who didn’t exist in the Middle East; the wonderful Amish community, who exemplify hard work and cooperation. Watching them work together was and remains awesome to Walid. Walid felt that they deserved an easier way to bring their product to market, and he loves the quality of their camel milk. Welcome to the show, Walid! Walid Abdul-Waham: Thanks a lot, Cassy for having me. Cassy Joy: OH my goodness, it is my pleasure. And I’m so excited to chat with you today. I told Walid I have all kinds of questions for him; probably a lot of the questions the listeners are thinking right now. {laughs} But before we get into those, I would love for you to fill in the gaps.

Episode 90 Transcription On today’s episode; Kristen Boehmer of Living Loving Paleo joins me to talk about her journey with Crohn’s disease; and how she took back her life with diet and mindset. Cassy Joy: Welcome back to another episode of the Fed and Fit podcast. Today I’m joined by one of the most lovely young women I’ve had the pleasure of knowing professionally; we got to hang out a little bit this past summer. She really is incredibly genuine. She’s this light, bubbly, positive person, and I’m so excited to introduce Kristen Boehmer to you guys today. She’s the founder and creator of Living Loving Paleo; and from her own experience, is a true believer that food can be a powerful medicine. She was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease at the age of 12, and then after spending far too many years in and out of the hospitals, and ultimately having her entire large intestine removed in 2011, she took back control of her own life by completely changing her diet and mindset. Her biggest mission is to share her story and knowledge with the world, as so many are needlessly suffering just like she once was. Kristen is here to show you how she believes that creating a positive mindset in eating real food has the ability to change your entire life. Welcome to the show, Kristen! Kristen Boehmer: That was the sweetest introduction ever; thank you Cassy! Cassy Joy: {laughs} Kristen Boehmer: I feel the same about you. Cassy Joy: Oh, you’re too kind. Kristen Boehmer: I mean it. Cassy Joy: I mean, really, I guess; we’ve kind of just touched back and forth online and social media for years. And I’ve admired the content you’ve put out there, and you really are truly positive and your genuine spirit comes across in all of your posts, so I’ve always been a fan. Kristen Boehmer: Thank you. Cassy Joy: And then I got to meet you, and your awesome husband. Kristen Boehmer: {laughs} That was so fun. Cassy Joy: It was so fun! This past summer we were in San Francisco for a book tour stop, and we got to spend some time together. I really did walk away knowing that I’d found a real friend, and a real; I don’t know, connection with another person from the internet. I’m just so excited. And I’m excited to introduce you to the Fed and Fit people. {laughs} Kristen Boehmer: Aww, thank you! I feel the exact same about you. When I came across you years ago, it was your positivity that just shined through your posts, and I was just instantly drawn to you. So thanks for being you. Cassy Joy: Oh my gosh; let’s just high five! {laughs} Kristen Boehmer: I know! {laughs} Cassy Joy: Across a couple of time zones. Well, you really do have a truly incredible blog. All of your work; I’ve always been impressed by it. What’s the one piece of your job now that you enjoy most? What’s the one thing you really enjoy most about Living Loving Paleo? Kristen Boehmer: Ooh. Man. There’s so much. Cassy Joy: I really love blindsiding you. Kristen Boehmer: What was that? Cassy Joy: I’m blindsiding you with questions.

Find Michelle on Facebook HERE. Episode 89 Transcription On today’s episode, I’m interviewing Michelle Hoover, a blogger who wants to talk all about how you can powerfully heal from Hashimoto’s. Cassy Joy: Welcome back to another episode of the Fed and Fit podcast. Today I’m joined by the most lovely Michelle Hoover. We’re going to talk about healing Hashimoto’s. and to tell you really quickly before I let Michelle introduce herself more in depth, I’ll tell you a little bit more about her. {laughs} I’ll tell you more about herself. See Michelle, this is one of those moments where if I did edit my podcast, I probably would have edited that part out {laughing}. Michelle Hoover: {laughs} Cassy Joy: Oh anyways. I just told her that unedited I feel like is just more fun. Ok, so more about Michelle. After living the first 17 years of her life feeling chronically unwell, Michelle Hoover was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s disease, which is an autoimmune disease that attacks the thyroid and affects weight, energy, mood, hormones, and pretty much just about everything else you can think of. She spent her early college years medicated and in a fog, until she discovered the autoimmune-gut connection, and everything changed after that point. After her diet changed, lifestyle, and targeting her gut health, she lives a drastically different life, free of debilitating Hashimoto’s and digestive symptoms. Michelle works one on one as a nutritional therapy practitioner; an NTP, and blogs about gut healing, living with Hashimoto’s, and autoimmune friendly paleo recipes at her blog, www.UnboundWellness.com. This January, she is releasing the 30-day gut healing diet plan and guide, which is designed to lead you on your own gut healing journey, just like she did to address her Hashimoto’s. Welcome to the show, Michelle! Michelle Hoover: Thank you so much, Cassy. I’m so excited to be here. Cassy Joy: Oh, I’m so excited to have you here. When Michelle emailed me and told me a little bit about herself, I really felt compelled to invite her immediately onto the show, because we’ve never; or have not ever, in the last 80-plus episodes, covered Hashimoto’s specifically. And I know it is probably one of the most prevalent autoimmune diseases afflicting more folks than any other, and I really wanted to bring you on because you have such a beautiful success story, you’ve got such a really good head on your shoulders and perspective, and I wanted folks to be able to hear from your firsthand how you’ve really confronted things head first. But yeah welcome to the show! Is there anything that I missed in your bio that you’d like to share in additional? In addition to that? {laughs} Michelle Hoover: {laughs} I think those are the things. If you hear any tiny pony galloping in the background it’s my cat, Stinky. Cassy Joy: {gasp} Cat Stinky! I was really hoping you were going to say, “If you hear any tiny pony galloping, it’s my tiny pony.” {laughs} Michelle Hoover: {laughs} He sounds like a tiny pony. He like gallops; it’s weird. So if you hear that, it’s my cat. {laughs} Cassy Joy: Ohh, Stinky, that’s so cute. If you hear a Clydesdale galloping, it’s my dog Gus. {laughing} The opposite of tiny pony. He’s a big pony {laughs}. Oh man. Well this is great. I’m really excited to chat with you. So can you share a little bit more about; you were diagnosed at 17. Michelle Hoover: Yeah.

When Michelle emailed me and told me a little bit about herself, I really felt compelled to invite her immediately onto the show, because we’ve never; or have not ever, in the last 80-plus episodes, covered Hashimoto’s specifically. And I know it is probably one of the most prevalent autoimmune diseases afflicting more folks than any other, and I really wanted to bring you on because you have such a beautiful success story, you’ve got such a really good head on your shoulders and perspective, and I wanted folks to be able to hear from your firsthand how you’ve really confronted things head first. But yeah welcome to the show! Is there anything that I missed in your bio that you’d like to share in additional? In addition to that? {laughs}<br /> <br /> Michelle Hoover: {laughs} I think those are the things. If you hear any tiny pony galloping in the background it’s my cat, Stinky.<br /> <br /> Cassy Joy: {gasp} Cat Stinky! I was really hoping you were going to say, “If you hear any tiny pony galloping, it’s my tiny pony.” {laughs}<br /> <br /> Michelle Hoover: {laughs} He sounds like a tiny pony. He like gallops; it’s weird. So if you hear that, it’s my cat. {laughs}<br /> <br /> Cassy Joy: Ohh, Stinky, that’s so cute.

Episode 88 Transcription On today’s episode, I’m talking about 5 easy swaps we can make in 2017 that will have huge pay out with regard to your long-term healthy lifestyle. Cassy Joy: Welcome back to another episode of the Fed and Fit podcast. And Happy, Happy New Year! I hope this finds you well and having started off on the right foot in this New Year. And if you feel like you haven’t started off on the right foot; no sweat! Look at all the days ahead of us we have to start on the right foot {laughs}. So the important thing is that we are just putting one foot in front of the other and we are just doing our best. So don’t worry. I know there’s a lot of expectations and hopes going into the New Year. And there’s nothing wrong with those. There’s nothing wrong with New Years’ resolutions, and harnessing all this brand new start momentum and jazz around January 1st. There’s nothing wrong with that. But if you feel like the first few days don’t live up to your expectations, just remember that they were just that; they were just expectations. So; I wanted to start off today’s episode with just a quick reminder about that. Maybe a little perspective, as we remember that every day is a new day to get started. So, today’s episode is really aimed at those of you maybe you didn’t necessarily come up with a new years’ resolution; or maybe if you did, maybe it was just to be a little bit healthier. You know it could really be anything across the gamut. What I wanted to cover today are five easy swaps that we can all make in the new year to make a healthier, happier version of ourselves. And they’re really simple. And to be honest, if you’ve been following my work for a long time, you probably already do a lot of this stuff. And if you have not been following my work for a long time, then I hope that you’re able to get something significant from today. And even if you are a seasoned veteran, maybe you’ll get something out of it, as well. I hope I have got a surprise or two in here for you. Five easy swaps. I tend to; if you have followed my work for a long time, you probably know and understand really well now that I don’t really like to create or foster an environment of constructing unrealistic expectations of ourselves. Because what do we do when we make unrealistic expectations of ourselves? If we don’t follow through on those, then we tend to throw the baby out with the bathwater. Right? So if your New Year’s resolution was to, say, never eat another piece of bread again, and then come January 2nd someone offers you up; I don’t know, a cupcake, and it’s your favorite cupcake in the world and they pressure you into eating it, and you buckle and you have a bite of the cupcake. If you had these huge unrealistic expectations that you would never have another bite of bread or breaded good again, you might feel like you failed it. And if you failed it with one bite of a cupcake, then you might as well go home and have pasta for dinner and cereal for breakfast the next morning, because we’re officially off the bandwagon. That’s what they mean by throw the baby out with the bathwater. So what I like to do is foster an environment of; maybe let’s start thinking of goals; really, goals are really good, healthy activity to work through, and we do work through those very strategically within the Fed and Fit Project online; but I think it’s important to set goals as far as our mindset and our perspective with footnotes that make exceptions for real life. Right? Let’s think realistically about what we can accomplish in this New Year. Let’s think realistically about the changes we can make that will have a huge im...

Episode 87 Transcription On today’s episode, I’m sharing a thought on how instead of aiming to change our circumstances in 2017, we first aim to shift our mindset towards a more grateful, appreciative, present, focused heart. Cassy Joy: Hello, hello, hello! Welcome back to another episode of the Fed and Fit podcast. I am your hostess, Cassy Joy Garcia, the owner of Fed and Fit; the book, blog, nutrition consulting practice, etc. {laughs} I’m excited about today’s episode. It’s going to be probably a relatively short one. The idea for today’s topic is one of those that has come to me several times during several evenings. You know that time right before you fall asleep at night and your mind is just all abuzz. Those really great, creative ideas come to you; you solve things that maybe have been mentally perplexing for a while. This is one of those ideas that has really; it’s come up over and over again, and I hope I do a good job of describing it. I have; some folks keep a notepad next to their bedside table to jot down these ideas. I tend to keep them in a notebook on my phone; one of those little notepads. So I have some scribbled notes to talk about it, but the memory is still really fresh. And to kind of begin with the end in mind, the point of this little mini story I’m going to tell you is really just because I want us to regain some perspective and some focus and find presence and appreciation for where we are right now before the new year comes. I’m talking to you; if you’re listening to this show on the day that it airs, the last Monday of 2016. Isn’t that so exciting! We have so much ahead of us, and so much behind us, and it’s just always just a special time of the year; you know, that transition between the years 2016 and 2017. There are so many memories, and so much promise for the years to come. So the thought that occurred to me; and again, I hope I do this story justice! I did a dry run with my family the other night at dinner; I was with, we were over at my parent’s house, and I just blurted out this idea, {laughs} and my parents just sat there blinking, staring at me for a second while they took in what I said. So this thought that came to me, and maybe part of it is exhaustion; making sure we’re getting The Project up and running and everything is full steam ahead; which it is, and it’s all so exciting. But I started thinking about, you know, we all go through life. Our daily life; and we have our daily life grievances that are small and minor. But they’re irritants, right? They’re little things. It’s like; I read somewhere on one of my social media platforms; Instagram, that’s what it was. Someone was going to try to make my smothered, slow-cooker pork chops. And she was so excited about it, and then she left a comment that she came home and her husband had left them out all day long on the countertop, so the chops were spoiled. And she was so bummed about it. Like those kind of little grievances. It’s not a make or break thing, but it’s irritating. Those kinds of things come up; or your kid is just pitching a fit one day, or just in a bad mood, or I don’t know. Your dog ate your favorite pair of high heels! {laughs} Or, you put your neck out there and you built a brand new program, and you have some programming issues, because that’s just what happens sometimes with new programs. Hi Ace! I’m being visited by the ranch puppy dog. So we all have those moments. You get in your car, and you have a pretty crunch timeline on how long it will take you to get to where you’re going and you realize you’re out of gas. Those moments.

We’re going to talk about paleo-friendly forms of birth control, and then we’re also going to talk about how to get that classic paleo glow. Cassy Joy: Welcome back to another episode of the Fed and Fit podcast! Today I am joined by Roxanne, who is in D.C.; Washington D.C. and today is another one of those special episodes where a listener/reader wrote in with a bunch of really good questions, and I wanted to invite her on the show to ask them while we recorded our conversation {laughs}. Because I figured the answers to her question, and probably the conversation that will evolve over the next 30 minutes could be of benefit to more than just Roxanne. We really feel like it could be of benefit to a bunch of you guys out there. So I hope you enjoy today’s call; I have no idea what questions she’s going to ask me, {laughs} so I haven’t prepared. But I’m going to roll with it and it’s going to be a lot of fun. Thanks for coming on the show Roxanne! Roxanne: Hey, Cassy, thank you so much for having me. Cassy Joy: Oh my gosh. The pleasure is mine! Roxanne: {laughs} Cassy Joy: I’m so excited about this! It’s just, I don’t like to leave emails unanswered, I don’t like to leave questions unanswered, and every once in a while; you know, I don’t know, somebody asks really good questions, and I think to myself; gosh, I either want to copy and paste this and make it into a blog post, which I never do because that’s work. Roxanne: {laughs} Cassy Joy: {laughs} Or, and then this idea came up. I haven’t decided what we’re calling these yet. By now I’ve probably decided and I said it in the intro; but I don’t know if I’m going to call them reverse interviews, you know, where you guys come on and interview me, or a live coaching call. I don’t know; we’ll play with it. We’ll figure it out. Roxanne: I love it. Cassy Joy: Anyways, I’m going to; I told Roxanne before I started recording, but what I’m going to do is I’m just going to pass the virtual baton all the way over to her, from Texas to D.C., and let her ask whatever questions she’s got for me. I know she has a fashion blog, so I’m sure some of her questions are going to be related to that. Her website, if you’re curious about Roxanne, is www.glassofglam.com, she told me before the show. I haven’t looked it up yet but I think it’s a really, really clever name, so congratulations on that. Roxanne: {laughs} Thank you. Cassy Joy: Of course. Well, ask away Roxanne, I’m here for you. Roxanne: Thank you, Cassy. Well, ok. I started eating paleo in about May of this year, and it’s been awesome. It’s been life changing, like it’s the greatest thing I’ve ever done for myself and my body. Cassy Joy: Awesome. Roxanne: But, I've been struggling lately with acne, and no matter how much I exercise, how much I eat right with paleo, drink water, I feel like I’m always bloated and I just can’t get that glow that so many paleo women have achieved; you know, you and Diane Sanfilippo have. And I really want that. And part of that is because I have my fashion blog, www.glassofglam.com, which is supposed to be about feeling good and feeling confident. But if I don’t feel that way, then I don’t know if my readers would actually feel confident feeling that way either.

Cassy Joy: Welcome back to the Fed and Fit podcast! I hope this finds you well, and in the middle of a wonderful easy, breezy, holiday season. Today, I’m excited to talk about; this is a topic that has been swirling around. It’s really been this center point of a lot of my work. A lot of my work here on the podcast, within my Fed and Fit Project, which is my online food and fitness program. It’s a center theme of my book; the Fed and Fit book; and if you follow me on social media, you’ll probably see that this has kind of been a central theme across all of my social media platforms, and the thoughts and ideas that I share there. So we’re finally drilling down; I never claimed to be a quick learner, but I feel like we finally nailed what this topic is, and we’re going to succinctly put it today, and I’m going to take a stab at describing how it might apply in your life in various ways, and then also how to make some great positive changes, or strides, I should say. So today, the theme is we’re going to talk about progress versus perfection. Now I bring this up as somebody who has struggled with this concept in the past. And it’s one of those things that I constantly am aware of because I don’t ever want to let go of this progress mindset. Because I really found a tremendous amount of freedom in my life, in my relationships, in my health, in my work, in all of the things that I do because I came more progress minded instead of perfection minded. So if this is something that you think you might maybe struggle with a little bit, I hope that you enjoy today’s episode, and I hope that you get some really great little nuggets out of it. So how I’m going to break up today’s show is we’re going to talk about the different ways in which progress versus perfection may manifest in your life; so if you’re sitting there thinking, “I don’t know if this applies to me or not,” maybe we’ll just go ahead and brainstorm some ideas and you can see if anything resonates. And then to close out the show, we’re going to talk about how you could possibly make the switch from being perfection driven to progress driven. It’s a very distinct difference, and I’ve broken it up into 5 steps; 5 distinct steps. And of course, things are never really that simple. But you know what; we’re progress minded, On today's show, we chat about how the pursuit of perfection can actually negatively manifest in different areas of your life. We then cover 5 steps for becoming more progress-driven! - We're back with our 85th episode of the Fed+Fit Podcast!

I hope this finds you well, and in the middle of a wonderful easy, breezy, holiday season. Today, I’m excited to talk about; this is a topic that has been swirling around. It’s really been this center point of a lot of my work. A lot of my work here on the podcast, within my Fed and Fit Project, which is my online food and fitness program. It’s a center theme of my book; the Fed and Fit book; and if you follow me on social media, you’ll probably see that this has kind of been a central theme across all of my social media platforms, and the thoughts and ideas that I share there.<br /> <br /> So we’re finally drilling down; I never claimed to be a quick learner, but I feel like we finally nailed what this topic is, and we’re going to succinctly put it today, and I’m going to take a stab at describing how it might apply in your life in various ways, and then also how to make some great positive changes, or strides, I should say.<br /> <br /> So today, the theme is we’re going to talk about progress versus perfection. Now I bring this up as somebody who has struggled with this concept in the past. And it’s one of those things that I constantly am aware of because I don’t ever want to let go of this progress mindset. Because I really found a tremendous amount of freedom in my life, in my relationships, in my health, in my work, in all of the things that I do because I came more progress minded instead of perfection minded. So if this is something that you think you might maybe struggle with a little bit, I hope that you enjoy today’s episode, and I hope that you get some really great little nuggets out of it.<br /> <br /> So how I’m going to break up today’s show is we’re going to talk about the different ways in which progress versus perfection may manifest in your life; so if you’re sitting there thinking, “I don’t know if this applies to me or not,” maybe we’ll just go ahead and brainstorm some ideas and you can see if anything resonates. And then to close out the show, we’re going to talk about how you could possibly make the switch from being perfection driven to progress driven.

Cassy Joy: Welcome back to another episode of the Fed and Fit podcast. Today, I’m thrilled to bring you yet another reader; or listener, I guess we should say, reverse interview. These reverse interviews, of course, are when Fed and Fit listeners write in with really great questions, and I invite them to come on a phone with me! We record the call, they ask me their awesome questions, we get to have a really fun conversation, and then publish it to the podcast with the hopes that other folks out there listening; either they have the same questions and they can definitely benefit from this conversation we’re going to have, or maybe it brings up some things that some of you guys have never thought of before. So I’m really excited today to welcome the lovely Allie. She lives in Ames, Iowa, and she is a graduate student there studying student affairs and higher education, which is really cool, because that is actually my youngest sister, Samantha; that’s exactly what she got her graduate degree in, as well. Allie, I believe you said that you listened to that Fed and Fit college student mini-series we did here on the podcast a while ago. But it’s definitely a passion project of mine; I love working with higher education students, so welcome to the show! I cannot wait to jump into all your questions. Allie: Thank you! I’m so excited to be here. I’m excited as well. Cassy Joy: {laughs} Awesome! Well, what’s on your mind, girl? Is there anything you want to share with folks before we jump into some of the things you’ve got jotted down? Allie: Yeah, definitely. So, I’ll just touch on a little bit of a background of how I got these questions, because otherwise they don’t make a lot of sense of where I’m starting from. Cassy Joy: {laughs} Awesome. Allie: So, I grew up definitely a healthy lifestyle; my mom was a marathoner, my dad was a weight lifter. So they were definitely in the fitness realm, kind of always eating healthy awareness. But I was very unreceptive to it; of course, like a typical little kid, I feel like I was that rebel child who didn’t want to believe what mom and dad were saying.

She wrote me with some great questions, and I told her they were great questions, and I said; I knew that other folks probably had similar questions, or at least would love to hear the answer. So we’re going to have an awesome conversation today! Again, we’re flying by the seat of our pants.

Sam: Alright; so just kind of going back to when I first emailed you. I kind of remember in the past you mentioned that you would sometimes take one to two full weeks off from working out, and I just kind of wanted to understand more about that, what the reasons are for doing that, what benefits you see from doing it. I feel like a lot of people struggle with taking time off from working out, and I just wonder what a full two weeks does for you. If you could just explain more about your experience with that? Cassy Joy: Yeah, that’s a great question! That’s why I was like; oh, please come and ask that on the recording. That’s an awesome question. It’s something I haven’t touched on a bunch, and I kind of want to talk about it some more. You know, I think that it’s important to take breaks from everything. It’s important to cycle things in and out, right. If we look at food; I do this a lot. I answer all the way around the question, and then we’re going swoop right in and talk about it. {laughs} Sam: Perfect. Cassy Joy: So when we look at foods, right?

Cassy Joy: No surprise. Lexi Kornblum Davidson: Thank you, thank you. Cassy Joy: I know you poured your heart and soul into this thing. How long did it take you to write it? Lexi Kornblum Davidson: So, actually we were talking about it the other night. From start to finish, with the whole entire process, it was 2 years. But, in terms of just writing the book, I would say a year, and year and a half. Just all in. Cassy Joy: I know. You were {laughs}. I mean, Lexi and I were both in editing and writing process together on our books, and I remember at PaleoFx we were sitting there on the couch commiserating {laughs}. Lexi Kornblum Davidson: {laughs} It was like, oh my gosh I still have so much to do! Cassy Joy: It’s so much to do! Well you knocked it out of the park. It’s really, really dense. And that’s something that… So Lexi was kind enough to let me publish one of her recipes from the book on my website, On today's show, the incredibly lovely Lexi Kornblum Davidson joins us to talk about her brand new book, 'Lexi’s Clean Kitchen,' share some healthy wedding hacks, and also chat about how she’s found balance in her healthy but still indulgent lifestyle....

Fed & Fit Reader Tara and I discuss healthy desserts, if nut butters are a healthy choice, thirst for hunger, transitioning from a diet to a lifestyle, when intentionally ingesting gluten is worth it, and the benefits of white over brown rice.

Connect at: Episode 80 Transcription Today we’re kicking off the very first Fed and Fit reverse interview, where I invite readers to dial in and ask their questions on the line. Today we’ve got Tara, who talks about; we chat about healthy desserts, nut butters (if they’re healthy or not), thirst instead of hunger, interpreting those cues, transitioning from a diet to a lifestyle, when is gluten really worth it; and then why white rice over brown rice? Cassy Joy: Welcome back to another episode of the Fed and Fit podcast. Today is an extra special episode, because we’re doing something totally different than what you have seen before on this show, and maybe on some other shows. So let me give you some background information before I introduce our very special guest. Every once in a while, folks will send me an email or they’ll comment on social media, whether it’s Instagram or Facebook, or even Snapchat. Gosh I love Snapchat because I can have conversations with people. And I love answering questions, and I love giving everybody, I guess just the answers that they’re looking for, or at least some direction or some reassurance. And it dawned on me that they can’t be the only ones with these questions. And that’s often true; if you have a question, sometimes people feel silly asking questions, and I always try to remind people, there’s no such thing as a dumb question, and you are definitely not the only one with those questions. So I thought; what would be a cool way that I could help answer these questions for these wonderful people in a way that may help and benefit more folks? So I got to thinking about it, and it’s something that I’ve thought about for a while, about maybe doing some sort of a reverse interview on the Fed and Fit podcast, where I invite people who email me with excellent questions, and I invite them on the show to essentially interview me. They get to ask all their questions, tell a little bit about themselves, and hopefully we can have a dialogue. This may turn into a mini; I don’t know if it’s going to be a mini nutrition coaching, or business coaching, or just overall healthy lifestyle coaching, but whatever it is, it would be fun to have a quick conversation, get it on record with these wonderful people. And I’m so excited to kick it off today with a lovely lady named Tara. She is joining us today, and I’m going to go ahead and turn it over to her to tell us a little bit about herself, and then the show is yours girl. I’m going to let you lead it wherever you want to go, and I am here to just chit chat and answer any of your questions. Take it away! {laughs} Tara: {laughs} Thanks Cassy. Awesome; I’m excited. This is, I think, a really cool step you're taking. I have so many questions; I feel like some are going to be silly, some might be a short answer, some might lead into more questions, but before I jump in; yes, my name is Tara, and I live in Seattle, Washington. Surprise, surprise, I work for Amazon. We have a lot of Amazonians here in the city, but I really enjoy it despite our grey skies and clouds and rains. But it doesn’t rain as much as you think. Cassy Joy: {laughs} Tara: {laughs} I am really inspired by just all of the paleo bloggers and just that lifestyle, living that way.

Mickey is an NTP, Angie is an NTC and CHC; {laughs} I’ll tell you what all of that is in just a second. I’m really excited to have them both on. First, I’ll tell you about Mickey. Mickey is a nutritional therapy practitioner; that’s what the NTP stands for; chef, blogger, and author of the Autoimmune Paleo Cookbook. She’s the creator of AIP Batch cook; a video based cooking program that teaches users how to prepare allergen free meals in their own home. Very, very cool stuff. She teaches cooking classes online and at seminars across the country, as well as at Bastyr University; I hope I said that right. I’m an Aggie. {laughs} We’re kind of… Mickey Trescott: Yeah, no, you totally got it. Cassy Joy: I nailed it? Awesome. Sometimes I feel like I’m tucked into my Texas bubble very tightly. Mickey is on the board of directors for Hashimoto’s Awareness, an advocacy organization for suffers of Hashimoto’s disease, and in 2012, Mickey founded Autoimmunepaleo.com; a website with recipes and resources for those suffering from autoimmune diseases. She lives in Willamette Valley, Oregon. Did I say that one right, too, Mickey? Mickey Trescott: Willamette. Close! Cassy Joy: {laughs} Oh man. Did I say it like Siri says it? {laughs} Mickey Trescott: Oh, I think you did better than Siri, actually. Cassy Joy: Awesome. Ok, I’m going to tell you guys about Angie. Angie is a nutritional therapy consultant; that’s what the NTC stands for; and a certified health coach; the CHC. She’s also the author of the Alternative Autoimmune Cookbook, a recipe and guidebook for the autoimmune protocol. She is the creator of SAD and AIP in 6, an online coaching program that has helped over 1000 members on the path to wellness; very cool; teaching them how to transition their diets and lifestyle over a 6-week period.

Well I’m going to pass the baton off. Those were really lovely bios, and gave a nice introduction, but I would love it if y’all could share a little bit more about your stories, and about this latest project that you girls are working on. Mickey Trescott: Yeah, so Mickey here, I’ll go first. And you know, my journey really started like a lot of us who come to paleo, come to all these health modifications, diet modifications, the autoimmune protocol, with a personal health issue. So I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s and Celiac disease about 5 years ago now after suffering for about a year, which in the scheme of things isn’t very long; but it was a pretty bad year. And I kept going to the doctor and trying to figure out what was wrong, and there were kind of two parts to my story. One part was not really getting what I needed from the medical community; so, going to the doctor and being told that there was nothing wrong, Today I’m joined by Mickey Trescott and Angie Alt!
