Oh, cravings... we all get them!

That delicious burrata pasta dish you ate last year in Italy, the dessert Grandma could whip up without a written recipe, the fresh squeezed juice concoction you invented that tastes like paradise, the lobster roll from that food truck you saw a well-known chef devour on Insta Stories...

On this podcast, Chicago-based twin sisters, Lauren Feingold and Sari Feingold, encourage you to follow not only your food cravings, but also your craving to create. After all, you can't spell create without e.a.t!

In our episodes, we bring you deep conversations with inspiring, food-loving, entrepreneurial guests who all share a craving to create across a variety of disciplines. Every Monday, we - and our guests - share our stories, insights, and lessons about what can happen when you do not ignore your cravings to create recipes, passion projects, businesses, or a lifestyle that aligns with who you are. Our guests also dish out their highest quality ingredients for living life to the fullest, so you can use ‘em in your own life!

If you are an ambitious, food-loving, creative soul seeking some direction on how to live a more fulfilling life, this is your show. While working hard is a big part of life, there is so much more that fills you up. That's why we make sure to ask our guests about ALL of their cravings, so you have recommendations to add to - and cross off of - your food, travel, and creativity bucket lists!

What are you waiting for? Let's dig in to the show.

    Craving White House Chocolate Chip Ice Cream, How to Be the Light, and Making a Soulful Impact - with Creative Cravings Founders, Producers, & Co-Hosts, Lauren Feingold and Sari Feingold

    Craving White House Chocolate Chip Ice Cream, How to Be the Light, and Making a Soulful Impact - with Creative Cravings Founders, Producers, & Co-Hosts, Lauren Feingold and Sari Feingold

    Food for Thought (Shownotes):
    Today’s fun and meaningful episode with co-hosts Sari and Lauren will have you craving ice cream and will boost your craving to make a soulful impact on others in your own unique way.
    Are you one of the 3+ million people who now follow Amanda Gorman after being moved by her original poem? We are both very inspired by her and her work, so we named part of this episode after a line in her poem, which also embodies the mission of Creative Cravings podcast. Through the lens of creative expression, we dive into our thoughts on the events of Inauguration 2021 and we share our perspectives on celebrating small and big moments. 
    Why did we personally create this episode? Because communicating through this podcast is one of the ways we get to express ourselves and create art that imitates life. We’re excited to be “twin tastemakers” and share with you some cool ways other creators have been inspired by the her-story making events, from food to fashion to illustration.
    Ready to co-create a movement together?! Join in to be a meaningful part of our #bethelightchallenge2021 inspired by Amanda Gorman’s powerful poem.  
    Share this episode with anyone who would love to eat some White House Chocolate Chip ice cream with you, while chatting about chasing your cravings in life.
    Ways to take inspired action from this episode:
    Support Creative Cravings while donating to Lindsey Stirling’s The Upside Fund, through the end of February (our bday month)! You can specifically contribute to our show all year round, and we look forward to choosing another charity later in the year.
    Join our #bethelightchallenge2021 (inspired by Amanda’s poem) on @creative.cravings Instagram or on Facebook
    Here’s how it works:
    On your Instagram or Facebook, post a photo of you with someone who brings light or has brought light to your life. Feel free to write whatever you’d like in your caption, but please make sure to include #bethelightchallenge2021. Also, be sure to tag @creative.cravings in your caption so we can see it and be sure to tag the person mentioned in your post, so they know that you’re thinking of them.
    Share your original post to your Story, and tag someone you wish to spread some light to (this is the person you are nominating). This is how you will “pass the torch” and keep it going!
    Example:
    I post of photo of me with my mom (or one of me and one of my mom). Caption: “My mom is a light in this pandemic because she’s a hardworking dentist who wears ton of PPE to protect herself, staff, family, and her patients.” I tag @creative.cravings so we both see it, and tag her so she can see it.
     After posting, I share it to my Story and tag Lauren to nominate her to spread the light!
    Make as many posts as you’d like and tag anyone who lights up your life! Could be a mentor, friend, someone who’s podcast or work you admire, a pet, anyone who makes you laugh, someone who inspires you… We hope to build a community of inspiring people who are bringing light to one another, through this hashtag #bethelightchallenge2021!
    If social media isn’t’ your thing — we share an alternative idea in this episode for how to participate in a different, special way!
    Sign up for Creative Cravings newsletter to find out soon how to celebrate 2 years of the podcast (and our 29th birthdays!)

    Lindsey Stirling - Craving Fudgy Crinkle Cookies, Overcoming Hard Times, and Creating a Vibrant Life & High-Vibe World

    Lindsey Stirling - Craving Fudgy Crinkle Cookies, Overcoming Hard Times, and Creating a Vibrant Life & High-Vibe World

    Welcome to Creative Cravings podcast! We’re so happy you’re here. We love connecting with high-vibe, kind people like you! Today’s special guest is the incredibly talented, generous, fierce, and whimsical ... Lindsey Stirling! 
    Lindsey truly uplifts the vibration of any rooms she’s in. She raises the vibration of the world not only with her with violin music, moving performances, and her inviting creative spirit, but also through her generosity to fans like us and to those in financial need. As you will learn in this episode, it took perseverance, overcoming hard times, and faith in herself to become the artist she has worked hard to become.
    While she needs no introduction, we’re gonna give her one! With 12.8M subscribers on her self-titled YouTube Channel, she wows fans with her dancing violin performances, original compositions, and collaborations with artists of all genres. She creates spectacular shows while touring all around the world, and hopefully, she’ll get to do so this year! Lindsey also hosts a YouTube series and podcast called String Sessions in which she collabs and chats with fellow musical artists. As you’ll hear in our conversation, we both loved watching her journey unfold as she and her pro dance partner Mark Ballas competed on DWTS with some of the most creative dances ever on the show! They made it to the finals as runners-up! Many of her songs and albums deliver on key inspirational messages about life — Go check out her latest album, Artemis, inspired by the goddess of the moon.
    UPDATE: If you're listening to this after our trivia fundraiser, you can still contribute! Click HERE to support this show. A portion of each donation (through end of Feb. 2021) is going to The Upside Fund, created by Lindsey.

    Craving Beautiful Charcuterie Boards, Kindness, and Empowering One Another through Zumba & Kinrgy with Rebekah Rinehart

    Craving Beautiful Charcuterie Boards, Kindness, and Empowering One Another through Zumba & Kinrgy with Rebekah Rinehart

    Usually we are hanging out with Rebekah as students in her Chicago-based Zumba class, but today we got to catch up via Zoom to learn about her ingredients for living life to the fullest, to dive deep into her self-care practices (in honor of May being Mental Health Awareness Month), to explore the connection between wellness & creativity, and discuss all of our cravings — from freely expressing ourselves through latin rhythms in Zumba and breathing / moving through element-based, Kinrgy (expanded fitness by Julianne Hough), to our love of charcuterie and cheese boards, global flavors that transport us, and matcha!
    Her story will remind you that it’s up to you to “live your life on purpose, instead of by pattern.” This episode is for you if you are someone who has moved by yourself to a new place, or, you have taken a leap of faith to follow an opportunity not knowing if it would work out, or you’ve opened up to others about something personal, or you just love to dance and express yourself through movement.
    A few months ago, right before the pandemic escalated, Rebekah joined Julianne, 9 other soulful dancers, and Oprah (yes, that Oprah!) on stages around the U.S. to guide tens of thousands of people through Kinrgy, which she created to help you “connect to yourself from the inside out” so we can all better relate to one another.
