    Bonus Episode: Getting Intentional about our Gut Health with Tina Anderson

    Bonus Episode: Getting Intentional about our Gut Health with Tina Anderson

    Today's episode is a bonus episode where we are approaching a topic a little off the norm for minimal-ish, but one I think is important! It's also different because I got to interview the owner of a company that I have benefited from, and that I'm also partnering with. I'm grateful to get to hear more of the heart behind a company that has helped me, along with being able to partner with them to sponsor this episode. Please note: Anytime we approach a topic that dives into health, it is NOT medical advice.
    We talk about:
    - the heart and story behind Just Thrive probiotics
    -gut health and why it is integral to our overall health
    -starting points and ways that we can improve our gut health

    Again, I'm so grateful I got to partner with a company that has helped in my own health journey, along with being able to interview the founder for a unique bonus episode of the show!

Amazing podcast

This is one of my favourite podcasts! Desirae is so easy to listen to, so relatable and it feels like she’s one of my friends. She has really great guests and her questions are ones i’d ask if I could. This is definitely a podcast you should listen to!

Warm and soothing

Listening to this podcast is like drinking a hot cup of tea. It's warm and soothing. I listen to other podcasts while I'm working or doing chores but I save this one for when I'm taking a break so I can soak up every ounce and enjoy it.
