Today I’m chatting with Meg Dixon and Victoria Myers, owners of Nourishing Minds Nutrition and hosts of the Nourishing Women’s Podcast. Both Meg & Victoria are registered dietitians who came together over their shared holistic approach to wellness and desire to help others.
I love their philosophy because it aligns so much with my own beliefs. They look at the whole body and see nutrition as more than just calories. They believe in a lifestyle free from restrictions, rules, or the idea that our external appearance is a reflection of our worth. Their intention is to end the cycle of disordered eating, heal digestion, and restore hormonal harmony. At the heart of their practice is to empower their clients to nourish themselves from the inside out with real foods and self-love.
IN THIS EPISODE WE DISCUSS:
How empowered women, empower other women
The importance of reconnecting with your inner wisdom & feminine energy
Their advice to combatting messages of diet culture
Owning who you are allows you to fulfill your higher purpose in this world
Approaching life from a feminine perspective (without anger & frustration) → instead coming from a place of empowerment, support & community
“Casting off” what we do want instead of emitting of what we don’t want
Empowerment and how it revolves around choosing the things that serve you
When we allow ourselves to feel suppressed by diet culture, we are not empowering ourselves.
Instead we can choose not to internalize these messages, and create our own internal harmony that best serves our needs

Having a good relatinship with food means you have a good relationship with yourself

Gut Motility – what is it? Why is it important?

Personal Guided Meditation Sample: After searching the intertubes for something that really spoke to my soul and falling short, I put together my own personal guided meditation. And I’ve been listening to it every day and have found it so transformative.
