My new fav podcast!

I can’t believe I am just now discovering her podcast! I have been following plant you on Instagram forever (love her recipes). Went to preorder her cookbook for my friends bday and saw on her website she had a podcast. Listened to three episodes while cleaning the house today and I’m hooked! I have been looking for a podcast that’s engaging and educational besides TedTalks daily and found it here in the plant pod. Thanks Carliegh for giving the world things of value :)
