The Plantbased, Not Perfect podcast is all about striving to be our healthiest selves, while living in the real world. With a master's degree in Technical Writing, Elizabeth explains complicated health topics in a format that is easy to digest. After her mom almost died from congestive heart failure caused by a root canal infection, Elizabeth became passionate about living a healthy lifestyle free from disease. This led her into the plantbased world and eventually inspired her to create #plantbasednotperfect - a sustainable way of living a plant-centric life that doesn't strive for perfection - just encourages making healthier choices to help achieve optimal health. Podcast topics range from health and wellness, plantbased studies and interviews, to food and finances, emotional and mental health, skincare and everything in between.

Today's podcast guest is Tammy Fender, known among beauty editors and celebrities - from Gwyneth Paltrow to Julianne Moore - as the holistic skin guru. Tammy shares her journey with us starting at a cosmetics counter and researching the labels and ingredients, to researching and finding the answers in plants and nature over 25 years ago.

170. Why Diets Fail, Unsubscribing from Diet Culture & Tips for Sustainable Weight Management
In today's episode we are tackling diets; from my history with dieting, the reasons fad diets don't work and fail US (not the other way around), what the research on diets shows and why some of the lifestyle "diets" can actually work versus restrictive diets. For those who don't diet, we discuss diet culture - what it entails and why you might be practicing it without even knowing it - plus tips to help you stop subscribing from unhealthy diet culture trends and find sustainable weight management. I hope this episode helps you stop looking for the latest fad, embrace your intuition and focus more on adding in the good things instead of removing everything.

168. Are Eggs Healthy or Harmful?
Happy New Year! In today's episode I am deep diving on eggs and whether they are healthy or harmful? You will learn about the health issues associated with egg consumption, from diabetes to cancer, so you can make the choice for yourself if you want to consume eggs, limit them or say no all together. I share the research on both sides and get into the egg industry funding their own studies and being shady. We cover the debate on the need for choline, how to get it from plantbased sources and why some studies say eggs don't raise cholesterol when the research suggests otherwise. We also discuss how to choose eggs at the grocery store and what to look for if you want to keep eggs in your diet, as well as my personal stance on eggs.

LOVE LOVE LOVE
Went plant based over a year ago, and PBNP is my go to podcast for filling my cup. Each episode is well researched and I love how informational/educational Elizabeth is in her delivery. She goes right for it! I listen religiously and look forward to each week's new episode.
I love the PBNP podcast! Elizabeth is very thorough with her research and I always learn something new after listening. I recently got my boyfriend hooked on a variation of the LGS and I’m thankful to the podcast for showing me what to say so I don’t sound bossy to my boyfriend about being a little healthier😂💕
Love the variety of topics! So relatable
Love the podcast and various topics. Loved the episodes on finances and debt, drinking and alcohol, birth control, mentions of family issues, and the Q&A's! Always like to hear more about how people took their health into their own hands.
