    464: How to Save Time and Money in the Kitchen and Go Vegan Effortlessly: Meal Planning, Batch Cooking, Budgeting, Recipes, Resources & Healthy Food Swaps

    464: How to Save Time and Money in the Kitchen and Go Vegan Effortlessly: Meal Planning, Batch Cooking, Budgeting, Recipes, Resources & Healthy Food Swaps

    If you're surprised and frustrated by high prices at the grocery store, you are not alone. National data shows that grocery shopping and dining out are more expensive than ever. The latest data from the Agriculture Department shows consumers spent 11.3% of their disposable income on food in 2022. This means that Americans are currently spending more on food than they have in over 30 years.
    I'm certainly seeing this in my own life. I've just returned from a trip to Tulum, and don't worry, I'll be sharing more about that journey on my podcast soon. Tacos that used to be $5 are now $15; a veggie burger that used to be $8 is now $18.
    But what can we do about this? Well, personally, I feel it's my mission to make sure that no matter the cost of food, we all still feel empowered and inspired to make healthy choices and to not let this inflation deter us from our health goals.
    So today, I have rounded up the best experts on saving money while eating well. First up is Kathy Davis, the CEO of VegInspired. She'll be discussing how to eat healthy on a budget, her personal experience losing 30 pounds when she went plant-based, tips on food prep, and advice on when to buy in bulk. 
    Then we've got Food Heals regular and Vegan Chef to the stars, Leslie Durso, here to talk about how to cook plant-based on a budget for yourself, eat seasonally to save money, and the secret ingredient that saves you money and enhances the flavors of your food.
    Next up is Founder of Vegan Dinner Club, formerly known as Batch Cooking Club, Stephanie Dreyer, who helps busy parents bring more ease to their meal prep and meal times. She's here to discuss Meal Planning, family recipes, batch cooking, plus her favorite healthy swaps.
    Next, we'll be speaking with Toni Okamoto, author of Plant-Based on a Budget: Delicious Vegan Recipes for Under $30 a Week. She'll be sharing insights on saving time and money in the kitchen, meal planning, buying in bulk, growing your own food, and more.
    And finally, we've got Whitney Lauritsen sharing the best apps, websites, and resources to thrive on a vegan diet.

    Neurohacker
    Everyone wants to slow down the signs of aging, but very few people are going about it the right way. The negative aspects of aging are one of the most ubiquitous challenges to quality of life. Scientists believe that part of the reason we experience aging the way we do is because of stressed or worn-out cells called senescent cells.* 
    Qualia Senolytic combines our legendary “complexity science” formulation approach with science-backed ingredients shown to help decrease senescent cells. Its goals are similar to those of pruning a plant: support efficient use of cellular resources, encourage the regeneration of more youthful cells, and ultimately support tissue health and appearance—promoting whole-body cellular rejuvenation.

    462: The Psychology of Food Cravings, Overcoming Stress Triggers, and How to End Emotional Eating with Ali Shapiro

    462: The Psychology of Food Cravings, Overcoming Stress Triggers, and How to End Emotional Eating with Ali Shapiro

    Do you ever wonder why diets work at first and you fall off track? What is the key to consistency? 

    When you're fed up with asking "How do I resist food temptations?" and are ready to discover "How do I become the person who is no longer tempted by food?"– Aki Shapiro is here to help. (And hint: it's not about willpower or the food).

    Ali is the host of the top-ranked podcast Insatiable, a holistic nutritionist, integrated health coach, and a rebel with a serious cause.

    She’s academically, practically, and empathetically aware of how the medical system, diet culture, and body positivity movements all have their own flavor of crazy. 

    Ali developed TRUCE while in graduate school at the University of Pennsylvania, where she drew from her 17+ years of working with real life clients and her own personal healing journey from emotional eating and having cancer as a teenager.

    Ali’s work and clients’ unique success has been featured in Well + Good, Mindbodygreen, Prevention, Women’s Health, and Forbes, as well as industry leading podcasts Being Boss, Tell Me Something True, and Food Heaven (and now Food Heals of course!)

    In this episode, Alli shares:


    How having cancer as a teenager led to emotional eating and how she healed her body and mind

    The eating psychology of why giving into the “I want what I want” mentality makes perfect sense

    The four stress eating triggers and the hidden opportunities in them

    How to tackle emotional eating and and take a holistic approach to health

    461: Movement Is Medicine: Overcoming Chronic Pain By Understanding How Our Fascia Works with Anna Rahe

    461: Movement Is Medicine: Overcoming Chronic Pain By Understanding How Our Fascia Works with Anna Rahe

    What is fascia and why is it an essential tool to help your body heal itself?

    Fascia is a thin casing of connective tissue that surrounds and holds every organ, blood vessel, bone, nerve fiber, and muscle in place. The tissue does more than provide internal structure; fascia has nerves that make it almost as sensitive as skin.

    My guest today, Anna Rahe, shares her personal journey to overcoming chronic pain by learning about our fascia's ability to heal itself when given the proper tools. 

    In her own journey, she's discovered how understanding the way fascia works in our bodies can be the key to overcoming chronic pain and unlocking the body's potential to heal itself.

    Picture this – 20 years of pain, wiped away by tapping into the fascinating ability of fascia to contract and release, acting as a built-in therapist for our muscles, nerves, and organs.

    As the founder, CEO, and educator of GST Body, Anna has spoken about holistic body care through fascia around the world, partnered with top athletes, surgeons, physicians, and celebrities, and been featured in various publications, from Shape to Elle, Net-a-Porter to The Wall Street Journal.
