    Pro-Metabolic Eating for Hormone Health with Dr. Heather Rhodes

    Pro-Metabolic Eating for Hormone Health with Dr. Heather Rhodes

    If someone asked you to point to your metabolism- could you? It's a trick question- because your metabolism isn't something you can point to- it's a part of every one of your bodily processes, converting food into energy and powering every cell of your body- including your hormones! Your metabolism and your hormones are intricately linked, and it's why eating and living a pro-metabolic lifestyle is so powerful for our hormones and our overall health. The world of pro-metabolic eating is rapidly growing, and I wanted to have returning guest Dr. Heather Rhodes on to talk about how metabolism relates to our hormones, and how simple, balanced and downright delicious!) eating for a healthy metabolism can be. 

    We talk about: 
    What metabolism is and why having a healthy metabolism is so important to hormone function How pro-metabolic eating differs from conventional/diet-culture views of nutrition and holistic nutritionWhat PUFAS are and why we might want to look at our intake Why dairy is way healthier than we might think Why low carb is not supporting our hormone function Raw greens... are they really the superfood we think they are?! (dun dun dun!) A resources we created to help YOU eat deliciously pro-metabolic!Get on the waitlist for the Happy Metabolism, Happier Hormones cookbook!

Loved it!

Love hearing from Kris! She's super relatable and gives us moms some practical ways to find some more balance! I loved the episode with Zen Mommy about the art of self care! Great interview, great deep questions, but also lots of great implementable takeaways. Looking forward to more episodes!
