    The Matcha vs. Coffee Wars - A Coffee Addicts Story of Going Over to the Green Side

    The Matcha vs. Coffee Wars - A Coffee Addicts Story of Going Over to the Green Side

    For nearly a decade I would have called myself a very happy coffee addict. My two cups of morning coffee was sacred, a critical piece of my self-care, practically a religion really, then everything changed.

    In this episode I take you through my journey from coffee addict to matcha Momma and we look at the benefits of each, why you might consider switching over, how my first few days and weeks went in the transition and what changes I noticed pretty much immediately.

    In this episode I also chatted about a special giveaway from my friends at VitaHealth where one lucky winner get a bag of the organic matcha I buy from them and a $50 gift card. All you have to do to enter is message me on Instagram (@marla.barr) that one little code word I mentioned to you in the show.

    Ready to get Witchy? 7 Selfcare Tips to Help You Tap Into Your Inner Goddess Witch

    Ready to get Witchy? 7 Selfcare Tips to Help You Tap Into Your Inner Goddess Witch

    I bet you have never thought of a witch as a self-care expert. Well, maybe it is time we change that.

    Since we are well into the fall and Halloween is right around the corner I thought it was fitting to look to our cackling, cauldron-stirring sisters for some wisdom on how to take our self-care up a notch.

    In this episode I did chat about some of my favourite cauldron concoctions (I am talking about my root chakra nourishing soups), so here is my mini eCookbook I promised I'd share with you witches out there. Do make sure to message me on Instagram @marla.barr and let me know which recipes were your fav.

    My two, that are 7 and almost 10 now, have been plant-based since before they were even born. In this episode, you and I chat about the big questions that I get most often:do they ever eat meat/dairyhow to answer their questions about other people eating meat/poultry/dairy/eggswhat are the school dynamics like for plant-based kidshow to be plant-based when you partner is notand what is at the core of your belief.In this episode, I also spoke about my one-on-one coaching sessions.

A Must Listen!!

I just recently lost my dear grandpa and have gone through an exhausting couple of years of change and turmoil, death, health problems and relationship problems. It has been extremely difficult to see a way out. My inner voice told me to listen to the podcast about Death and I felt like it was a narrative about my life recently! What a profound podcast and I feel i have healed so much from hearing this perspective. Thank u so much❤️

Great podcast!

I first listened to this podcast because of her guest, Max La Manna. There she touched on great questions one might have for a zero waste journey. Loved the episode and excited to hear more from the podcast!
