Check out my interview with Linda Bacon, Ph.D., an internationally-recognized authority on topics related to nutrition, weight and health. We discuss why diets aren’t serving your real goal and how her personal difficulties with weight regulation sparked her research. FYI… her research that we discuss just might lead you to question everything you THOUGHT you wanted… aka to be skinny. Find out how it’s possible to be healthy at every size and to respect your body at any size + shape.
You know those days where you wake up and you feel super fat, uncomfortable in your skin, and wish no one could see you.

Before you’re aware, this negative energy from “Hagatha” has sparked a fight with your hubby or kids.

It’s a nasty cycle. However, know that this negative body image is a struggle that all ladies are faced with.
But there is GOOD NEWS…. there is a way for you to overcome this body hate funk gracefully.

I’m not covered in Freckles myself but I’ve always found freckles to be strikingly beautiful. I know many freckled friends of mine that do not find beauty in their freckles.
I’ve always found this strange. But I suppose it’s pretty normal for a women to desire what another has and want that instead… like curly hair if she has straight hair…or straight hair if she has curly hair.
As a little girl, I had moles. I’m super lucky that my mom spoke over me before the kids at school got to me… because sometimes the kids at school can be mean!
My mom used to always admire mine + my sisters moles, except she didn’t call them “moles”, she called them “Beauty Marks”… and what little girl doesn’t love to be chosen to possess something special on her body that labels her “beautiful”.
Don’t know what to make for dinner? In this interview with Karen Page, a James Beard Award-winning author of a number of culinary-themed books, we chat about her passion with food + entrepreneurship. Including how these two passions both stem from childhood. I love her drive to teach + inspire others to eat healthy without settling your taste buds. She shows you how to take baby steps to cooking without feeling overwhelmed in making meals with fresh ingredients that taste amazing.
Today we are talking about real topics of weight loss + pain + health as we get older.
You know… “I can’t lose weight”… or “I’m in pain”…
And you’re met with comments like:
“It’s easier if you just except it. “
“There’s nothing you can do about it… you’re just getting older + it’s part of it.”

In this interview with Elle Griffin, Scholar of the Divine Feminine, we chat about forbidden topics, from the stories of females before us who changed the world by listening to their gut, dreams + feelings–– to glitter, sex, moon cycles, wisdom of menopause, shame for being female… and a few references to champagne + Kate Spade shoes. I was “Over The Moon” to have her on, as she’s all things fun, flirty, + spiritual. I especially love how Elle challenges us to awaken our desires even if they don’t fit the way “we’re supposed to be”.

Salty Snacks for Stress
I did it!
Well, actually it’s for stress, anger, or anxiety.
When you eat salt, the brain lights up with little hits of pleasure-chemicals, ensuring that we will keep eating it.
You work out, eat healthy, and you keeping pushing + working hard towards your weight loss goals but deep down you don’t believe it’s possible to achieve what you see others achieve.
Even though you see others around you achieve results, you find yourself saying, “yeah but I’ll never look like that!”
Why do we do this self sabotage, and how do you get through into achieving what you truly desire for yourself?
