    8: Mindful eating - the what, why, and how with Beth Basham

    Beth Basham, MS, RD, LD has been a dietitian for 14 years with her most recent applied experience in functional medicine, mindful and intuitive eating, and women’s health. She currently runs a virtual health coaching business and is an online course creator passionate for helping women break free from the diet industry, reconnect with their bodies and learn how to discover what she calls their “inner nutritionist”. Beth also has background and training as a yoga instructor and breastfeeding counselor.
    In this episode, Beth and I discuss:
    the differences between mindful and intuitive eating
    an example of the internal dialogue that can run through your head when making food choices (*ahem* cheesecake)
    regimented, prescriptive fad diets that promise "instant health"
    why it's not just what but how you eat that affects processes of digestion
    three tools you can learn to use to practice mindful eating during your mealtimes (hint hint -- these are things you can do TODAY!)
    why food is more than just nutrients AND how nourishing yourself is about more than just food

    6: From Perfectionism to Positivity -- Effect Positivity with Kristi Coughlin

    6: From Perfectionism to Positivity -- Effect Positivity with Kristi Coughlin

    Kristi Coughlin, MS, RDN, is a former private practice dietitian based in Central Oregon. Through her ten year career as a dietitian, she has worked a variety of jobs, including clinical, school nutrition, and teaching nutrition at two community colleges.
    While she believed any of these positions would turn out to be her dream career, that was not the case. Though working in these positions severed as a great opportunity to gain experience in the industry, Kristi realized they did not fill her soul or bring out her passion for life.
    Instead, Kristi recently took a massive leap of faith and closed her practice to pursue her dreams. You know the type of dream where you think, “I’d be crazy to do that.” Yea, that type of dream! To make it happen, Kristi has embraced her burning desire to inspire others. She now makes and sells products online in her shop @effectpositivity - which means to bring about happy.
    The best part about Kristi’s new product business, it was born as a result of her experiences working as a dietitian. Former clients inspired the sayings on her products! Her most popular sayings include, You Are Enough, Choose Happy, and Keep Going.
    In her spare time, Kristi can be found by the lake with her husband and kids, camping in the great outdoors, watching her daughters play volleyball, or drinking coffee and eating tacos (with black beans & sweet potatoes!) with her friends.
    In this episode, Kristi and I discuss:
    food is food. period. and food is NOT meant to be overcomplicated or unenjoyable
    how trying to achieve a "perfect" eating pattern can set you up for failure (Kristi share with us a great story about her up against a pan of brownies. *hint* the brownies won this round)
    the overwhelm of food choices and how confusing messaging about pursuing what is quote unquote "healthiest" or "best" can leave us making choices that go against common sense (*ahem* choosing soda > milk)
    why Kristi thinks everything #needsmoreblackbeans

    3: Nourished + Strong - Megan Carber

    Megan Carber, founder and owner of the private practice "Nourished + Strong" in Huntersville, North Carolina shares with us why strength is just as much mental as it is physical; discusses the value of self-reflection and asking "Why is this important to me?";  and why it's one thing to recognize internal cues about hunger and hydration, but it can be another thing to interpret and translate those cues into actions.
