    When birth doesn't go as planned: speak life over your story | with Alexa Penavega

    When birth doesn't go as planned: speak life over your story | with Alexa Penavega

    In this episode I sit down with Alexa Penavega who shares the birth story of her daughter Rio. Alexa was planning a home birth for her third child when her water broke 7 weeks early and she was airlifted to Oahu for emergency care to be near the NICU. The mindset she shares through her story is inspiring. Opening our hearts to each other’s birth stories and the power of speaking life to our circumstances can be extremely healing.

    Alexa is an actress, most famously known for her role as Carmen Cortez in Spy Kids and she’s been featured in various films and tv shows throughout her young and adult life. She competed on Dancing with the Stars alongside her husband Carlos PenaVega and together they recently had their third child and are raising their family in Hawai'i.

    In this episode we cover:


    Alexa’s birth stories with her children
    Her NICU experience
    The power of the mind and choosing joy
    Speaking life to your circumstances and radical gratitude
    Mourning loss and releasing / letting it flow
    How hardships shape our testimony
    Alexa’s two sides to pregnancy
    The mind + body approach to postpartum and the partner’s role
    Hospital care and tips with nurse staff, voicing your desires
    Emphasis on skin to skin contact and breastfeeding NICU babies
    The power of telling your story and finding support through loved ones

    Simplifying Plant-Based Nutrition | Tips to Thrive (part 1)

    Simplifying Plant-Based Nutrition | Tips to Thrive (part 1)

    Welcome to the first episode of The Ellen Fisher Podcast! To kick off the show I thought it fitting to go in depth on one of the topics I’m most passionate about, abundant plant-based nutrition. I’ve learned so much over the last 15 years on my vegan journey both from experts in the field as well as from my own experience, and I am so excited to share this information with you more in depth than I ever have before. Because it can be easy to get confused with so much conflicting information out there. Today we are going to clear the mud and simplify nutrition to make sense of the noise that is diet culture. I like to take a balanced approach that really considers both the large body of scientific evidence as well as a logical and simplified understanding towards what’s natural for us based on our physiology and how we are designed to thrive.

    There’s a lot I want to cover so I’ll be breaking this up into two parts. In part 1 today I’m going to cover:


    My healing story
    A few of my favorite plant-based books/resources
    The break down and simplification of plant-based nutrition from the overwhelming scientific body of evidence. (resources shared below)
    The Blue Zones and what it tell us
    What our natural diet is as a species based on physiological traits and natural inclination
    Food subsidies
    What isolated versus whole foods are.
    THE DETAILS: what foods are best for our health
    Optimizing your nutrient bioavailability in food
    And a little on specific TIPS TO THRIVE... but more on that in part 2
    Balance is key


    I hope you thoroughly enjoy this episode and feel empowered to take charge of your health and promote longevity through plant-based nutrition which positively impacts not only you, but others and the world around you. And don’t forget to listen to part 2!
    As always, consult with your trusted healthcare provider before making any drastic changes in your diet, especially If you are on medication. And hey, don’t take my word for all this, do your research too so you can stand strong in your own conclusions.

Huge Fan!!!!

I am 16 years old. I love all your YouTube videos and love your way of living. Your parenting skills are out of this world and have encouraged me to parent my future kids just like how you parent yours. Your healthy eating has inspired me and I have used a lot of your recipes in my everyday life. Tell Elvis, Sandy, Scout and Koufax that I said hello. Thanks for being you.

Love it!

So glad I can listen to your podcast on the way to work. I have loved your videos for so long. Thank you for making a podcast too!

Hopefully they gets better with time

I found the 1st 2 episodes just ok. As someone who’s been vegan for over a decade I didn’t really hear anything I hadn’t heard a million times before. Maybe this info is great for a new vegan or veg curious person. I’ll continue to listen with hopes that it gets better but so far it was kinda a snooze.
Also she talks quite fast
