    It's June 2020. This one is from the heart. I'm sitting in my car, and felt the need to say something publicly. I am working on my own education and journey, and maybe this will help to open up some conversations.

    Love to you all.

    Walk + Talk: Your "Allergies" might actually be Histamine Intolerance

    Walk + Talk's are unedited, I'm actually walking and talking.

    Histamine Intolerance can be a huge underlying issue for people who aren't sure why they don't feel good! It comes up especially during allergy season since we are producing a ton of histamine in response to allergens. Here's what it is, and what you should ask your doc about.

    Walk + Talk: NSF Certified for Sport Supplements

    Walk + Talk episode (background noise, unscripted!)

    Athletes not taking "NSF Certified for Sport" supplements is one of the biggest mistakes I find that pro athletes make. Listening to this podcast can ensure you won't have a drug test come up positive because of a vitamin supplement.

Miriam Mom of two ,

Great dialogue and knowledgeable!

Ashley has a relatable down to earth personality and is very easy to listen to. I live in the Seattle area and found her via Sue Bird's episode. As a mom of two I have appreciated her digging in and asking about food culture in the home as the guests were being raised-it has helped me re think and examine the food culture in our home. I look forward to listening and enjoy following her on social media.

A great story-teller, based in scientific fact

Ashley is extremely knowledgeable in her field as well as an engaging storyteller. Whether she is speaking to us about technical or non-technical information, I'm all ears and excited to hear more. Worth a listen for anyone looking to expand their knowledge about sports nutrition.

Informative and entertaining!

Ashley does a great job and holds your attention on a very popular topic. From Sue bird to Rachael Rapinoe, these have been great!!
