    Slash Your Grocery Bill with Carleigh Bodrug’s Plant-Based Kitchen Hacks

    Slash Your Grocery Bill with Carleigh Bodrug’s Plant-Based Kitchen Hacks

    When I was diagnosed with cancer nearly two decades ago, I turned to a plant-based diet to take some control of my health, and I haven't looked back. In this episode, I chat with the incredible Carleigh Bodrug, a New York Times bestselling author and a huge plant-based and food waste reduction social media creator. Carleigh is known for her "Plant You" platform, which empowers her audience to get creative and cook meals using ingredients they already have at home! 
    In our conversation, Carleigh highlights her nonjudgmental approach to promoting sustainability in the kitchen. She shares her practical tips for reusing food scraps, explains the benefits of having a diverse range of plants in your diet, and shares her advice for building a strong online following. We also touch on Carleigh's latest book, "Scrappy Cooking," and why she wants you to have a healthy body that will help you live life to the fullest. 
    WE DISCUSS:
    - (5:06) What initially inspired Carleigh to go plant-based 
    - (13:46) The reality of food waste and why it matters 
    - (18:27) How Carleigh’s recipes utilize leftover ingredients and encourage you to be creative with the scraps

New and Loving it!

Introduced to Ms. Carr and her podcast by a friend who raved about it as fun, informative and inspiring. After listening to my first episode, I think she should add down-to-earth, relatable, and relevant. I am looking forward to exploring every single episode!
