Welcome to The Happy Apple Podcast, bought to you by me, Katie King aka The Balanced Nutritionist. I live in Brisbane, Australia, but I work via telehealth so I reach people all around Australia and occasionally abroad.The Happy Apple podcast drops monthly, covering a wide variety of health topics but we ALWAYS try to keep the conversation positive and happy. Food should not be a source of stress.... it can be BOTH nutritious and delicious at the same time. I'm here to remind you that healthy food is fun and exciting and its ok to have an apple in one hand and the occasional croissant in the other! We rebranded this podcast in early 2021, so some of the older episodes will be under the old title 'The Nourished Wrap' - all of the episodes are worth listening too, in my opinion.To access my services, you can visit my website. I have a number of different online courses you can do from your own home or you can book a consultation with me. I also offer workplace solutions for corporate wellness.Thanks for tuning in and enjoy the show.
Doing Things Differently in 2022
This episode is for you if you really want 2022 to be different....
Are you setting yet another new years resolution to look after yourself better? To get healthier? To find more energy? To be a good example to your family?
Well, plan on doing things differently this year.... after all, if you do them all the same way you will be back here again in 2023!
My first podcast for 2022, I hope you enjoy!
It's so Much More than Numbers....
In this epsiode, I speak on a topic I am incredibly passionate about... 'its so much more than numbers.' There are 2 meanings here... firstly, health is so much more than the number on the scales that stares back at you. In fact, weight might be a completely inaccurate measure of your progress on any journey to a healthier life! (I discuss WHY its unreliable in this episode).... FOOD too, is so much more than numbers! We resort food to calories and macros BUT what we should be concerning ourselves with is what food is doing to our bodies and whether its helping us function better. Because a happy body is a healthy body and a healthy body will ultimately over time find its healthy weight. Tune in and enjoy.
Trimester 4 with special guests Nicole Bence, Layla Bence and Eliza King
I am back! With a new name, the Happy Apple and a baby... things are a little different now! However, I'm still following on from where I left off last time - our series on pregnancy, trimester by trimester. In this podcast, Nicole (currently on maternity leave) joins me as a guest and.... so do our babies! Be prepared... there is a LOT of background noise as the girls loudly agree with most of what we have to say about our experiences in trimester 4 as new Mums.
if you are currently pregnant this is a great episode for you to tune into as we talk about all of the unexpected things that happened in trimester 4 and those little bits of advice we wish we could have given ourselves before our babies arrived.
We also cover off our personal experiences with breastfeeding, weaning and of course, nutrition for the new Mum.
I hope you enjoy the show!
Trimester 3 of Pregnancy.... what to expect, nutritional recommendations and tips!
This episode was solo recorded by Katie as Nicole is already on maternity leave, being due a little earlier than Katie.
Katie covers off the following in this episode:
The 'word' for trimester 3.... intuition! And why this word is so important to keep at the forefront of your mind during this special timeHow your nutritional cravings and requirements will change at this later stage of pregnancyWhat you need to consider supplementation wise at this timeWhat you may want to add to your birthing bagListening to your body and what sort of movement it may benefit from nowCollagen for your own skin and joint health and for baby's What supplements to stop as you get closer to birthing day!
Lots of meat in this podcast.... by Katie when she is really in the midst of it at 36 weeks pregnant. Enjoy!
Trimester 2 of Pregnancy... Nicole and Katie Share Their Own Experience
In this episode Katie and Nicole talk about their journey through the second trimester of pregnancy.
The word the girls have come up with for trimester 2 in a nutshell being 'contrast.' There is such a huge contrast between the start and the end of trimester 2 on soooo many levels; energy levels, growth of the bump, emotions, exercise, appetite and cravings, supplement requirements.... just to name a few.
We cover off all of these topics from our own perspective, sharing tips, research and ideas along the way.
Its an amazing 16 weeks and so much changes! This is a long episode but we wanted to cover off all of the important aspects to consider during this very important stage of pregnancy. Enjoy!
Mindset for Maintenance
This could honestly be one of our most important podcasts to date!
As a society, we spend so much time on the 'journey' to health and weight loss but we rarely talk about the mindset for maintenance itself.
Hence, people often end up back where they started from!
Join us on this episode of the Nourished Wrap where Katie discussed 10 tips for maintenance so that your journey to find health and happiness.... is maintained for a lifetime and not just a season.
Your audio quality is really bad. Won’t continue to listen due to this.
Hi guys. I really enjoy your podcast. The content is great & I would rate it a 5 star BUT I really struggle to listen. I am constantly turning my volume up & down because in order to hear the person on the other end of your conversation I need it up high & then blast my ear drums when the person with the microphone speaks. I would listen more often if you fixed this issue. Thanks :)
