    #54: The Wisdom of Ayurveda with Katie Rose

    #54: The Wisdom of Ayurveda with Katie Rose

    While I love nerding out on the latest science of health and functional lab testing, we have so much to learn from the way health and wellness was approached traditionally.

    In this episode, I interview Katie Rose, the Founder of Bhakti Rose, who makes ancient yogic and ayurvedic wisdom accessible for busy modern-day women. Ayurveda is the traditional Hindu system of medicine which originated in India over 5000 years ago. This system seeks to help of find balance and optimal health, which differs greatly from the way our modern medical system operates.

    #52: Nutrient Dense Meal Prep with Lucia Mazzella

    #52: Nutrient Dense Meal Prep with Lucia Mazzella

    You may have heard the term “nutrient dense.” This includes adding highly nutritious foods like ferments, organ meats and seaweed to your diet. But how the heck are you supposed to do that without spending hours in the kitchen? And how can you make it taste good?!

    I know it can feel really overwhelming making the shift to a nutrient dense whole foods way of eating.

    In this episode, I interview Lucia Mazzella, Functional Health Coach and Period Coach (in training), who is an incredible whole foods cook and meal prep queen!

    Here’s what we cover in the episode:
    • A step-by-step guide to meal prep
    • What to do if you’re not a confident cook or you just don’t enjoy cooking
    • How to incorporate more nutrient dense food into your meals

    #51: Supplements: Do I Need Them? Quality + Recommendations

    Two of the top questions I get asked all the time are: “Do I need to take supplements” and “What supplements should I take?”

    I know the world of nutrition and supplements can be very confusing, so I’m giving you all the info you need to know on supplements in this episode.

    Here’s what I cover:
    • Why supplement quality is so important (and why you shouldn’t get multivitamins from the supermarket!)
    • Do I need to take supplements?
    • How long should I take supplements for? For a few months? Forever?
    • My top supplement recommendations (and my favourite brands)
    • Supplements for a vegan or vegetarian diet
