Episode 100: Reverse Interview: Our Nutrition Passions, Journeys + Future Dreams
You guys–can you believe we’re at 100 episodes!? Wow! We’re just in awe and so excited that we’ve been able to continually share 100 episodes of awesome and actionable content with you over these last 2 years! We have loved being able to share our knowledge, our food and healthy living philosophies, our hearts and our journeys with you and we pray they’ve been helpful within your own wellness journey.
On today’s episode, we wanted to do something a little different and ask each other a few questions since we’re usually the ones asking those we interview all the tough (and fun!) questions! We’re asking each other 3 questions each–from food and nutrition to raising healthy little eaters and even our 10-year plan, we’re digging a bit more into our beliefs, our dreams and some goodies in between!
We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for listening to the Colorful Eats podcast, for sharing your journey with us, your questions and interests, for telling others about the podcast and for being there with us each Monday as we shared our hearts and passion with the world!

Episode 99: Nutritionally & Emotionally Navigating the Third Trimester
On today’s episode, we are talking about our different experiences within our third trimesters of pregnancy and what this trimester taught us outside of the first two. We wanted to share some encouragement and a few pieces that we found helped us make it through these last months and weeks of pregnancy.
We wanted to get into both the nutrition side as well as the emotional side because both play such a huge role within pregnancy and your postpartum journey. We’re sharing why persistence is key, a few of the top nutrients to focus on in this final stretch, some different aspects of preparing emotional for baby.
It’s so interesting to see the different perspectives from person to person and even from baby to baby and we hope that today’s episode will serve to encourage you as you continue to grow and nourish your little one and prepare to meet your precious baby.

Episode 98: Real Food for Pregnancy with Lily Nichols, RDN, CDE
Today’s episode is all about pregnancy and who better to dig into the topic with than the expert herself, Lily Nichols, RD. Lily is the author of Real Food for Pregnancy and Real Food for Gestational Diabetes and is so beautifully bridging the gap between the conventional medicine and functional medicine approaches to prenatal nutrition and wellness and empowering pregnant mamas with her evidence-based knowledge.
On today’s episode, Lily shares how she’s married a real food approach to nutrition with her conventional nutrition training and how this has helped her to begin to shift the prenatal wellness paradigm for the better. She also dives into what inspired her to write her second book, Real Food for Pregnancy, as well as the topics we all have questions about–how to deal with nausea, vomiting and food aversions; food fears, her take on food safety and all those “no-no” pregnancy foods; and a bit on her recommendations for blood sugar testing.
We could have talked to Lily for hours and hours–her knowledge of prenatal nutrition and wellness is expansive, we highly recommend you snag her latest book to hear it all! You can also connect with Lily on Instagram or her brand new website!

We’ve touched on different aspects of sleep in previous episodes, but we wanted to take some time to focus on it specifically today. Sleep is one of those daily habits that can truly make or break our overall health and hugely affect how we function day in and day out.
In today’s episode, we’re talking about why sleep is so important, sharing some interesting sleep facts and of course, giving you some actionable ways to create healthier sleep habits to make sure you’re getting enough of it and the best quality possible.

Customer ReviewsSee All
I can't believe how long it's taken me to write a review of this podcast, because I love it and I've been listing to it for a long time. I started at the beginning and always look forward to the next episode. Each one is packed with great information, and I love how encouraging Caroline and Justine are!—they make it seem like healthy, toxin-free living is so doable, and I've made quite a lot of changes in how I approach healthy living and (especially) healthy product choices in my life. Listening to this podcast a few minutes a day feels like self care, and I'm always uplifted afterwards. I was so sad to see that the last episode is coming up soon in my play list, and I don't want it to end! I'll guess I'll have to start back at the beginning and listen again, because I totally enjoy having these ladies in my life :)
Inspiring, educational and uplifting!
This podcast is my jam. Justine and Caroline are warm, friendly and knowledgeable. They give you information without being pushy, make you excited about little steps you can take to make big changes, and motivate you to take a look at what’s going on around you and in your home. I love the topics each week and they are so relevant! Yep, I’ve been binge listening since I found them and am so happy that I did. If you are a stay at home mama (or just mama in general), someone who cares about wellness and natural options, or an entrepreneur building your business and need some good tips and inspiration, this podcast is for you!
Love, Love, Love!
Hey y’all, I’m a trauma RN from Tennessee, and I LOVE this podcast! I am so glad I stumbled upon it right after it started. I listen every week, and I also re-listen to them regularly. I find that I’m always hearing new little nuggets of information that I missed the first (or second!) times I listen. I feel very solid on my “western training” in nursing and healing the body, but this has completely opened and new holistic approach that I didn’t even know existed! I use these approaches on my own body, as well as with my patients. Thank you so much to Justine and Caroline for sharing your knowledge, and I’m so excited to follow y’all in the future!
