We discuss her journey with food, free tools you can use right now, and her Mindful Nutrition Method pillars that have helped thousands of people cultivate balanced eating habits for life. This program is one of the few that actually creates long-term, sustainable, healthy habits surrounding food, nutrition, wellness, and health. You won’t want to miss her teachings that move the needle in feeling good in your body.

Simple and actionable

I love this podcast. I have listened over the last couple of years. It has been my go-to for long walks in the park during quarantine. Robyn offers methods and steps that are tangible and actionable. I don’t think I have found that with most other “wellness” platforms. My favorite episodes are with her alone, not with external guests. Appreciate that her advice is backed up by research! I hope she brings new episodes back in the future.

Super inspiring.

I fell upon Robyn’s instagram and checked out her podcast and was immediately inspired. She’s super intelligent, positive, and creative. I listen to the podcast on my lunch break (I have a little one at home so it’s a good time and uninterrupted) and am filled with ideas on how to add little things to my daily routine to help me feel good. Robyn is inspiring and also is just “real” - she knows we all have good and bad days, but there are many ways to brighten them up.

Thank you!
