    My 5 non-negotiable grocery store items

    My 5 non-negotiable grocery store items

    I’ve used the word infrastructure before to describe your health. I need you to have a system in order to be successful. It’s not enough for us to say “take your lunch to work”. What we are really asking you to do is have food in your house, know what to do with it, cook it, have enough tupperware to take it somewhere, and have the emotional energy to put that tupperware in the dishwasher when you get home. 
    That’s “taking your lunch”.
    Today’s solo episode is a breakdown of my non-negotiable food items in my pantry and fridge. They might surprise you. People expect a Naturopathic Doctor to say “no” to certain foods - and guess what? They are on my non-negotiable list. 
    I teach you my 5 things but also help you create your own. There are specific questions you have to ask yourself to create your list. Enjoy this episode and good luck taking your lunch. It’s not an easy task at all.

    Your eating and the pandemic. What’s happening and how do we move forward with compassion?

    Your eating and the pandemic. What’s happening and how do we move forward with compassion?

    Over the last 18 months, people have had tremendous pressure added to their (already overflowing) plate. This has shown up through increased anxiety, burnout, and coping strategies that sometimes involve food.  Carly Crawford is a registered psychotherapist with a focus on people’s relationships with their bodies, food, and disordered eating. In this episode, we cover a lot of ground including mental health and stress during the pandemic, your relationship with your body and food, and how we all try and move forward after this year. 
    We share tips on how to think about your mood and stress. We talk about how to ask yourself hard questions about your mood and your relationship with food. We talk about comparison syndrome, how to think about your social media, and trying to move our thinking about our health and wellness into “the grey” rather than feeling so black and white.

    Parenting Hacks. How to only feel like you’re losing it part of the time.

    Parenting Hacks. How to only feel like you’re losing it part of the time.

    What’s parenting like as a career-driven-entrepreneurial-fitness-loving-independent woman? I’ll tell you, as soon as I finish cutting up this cantaloupe. 
    In this week’s solo episode, I share my tried and true strategies for getting life done, getting the small people (aged 12 and 10) out the door with two socks (who gives if they don’t match) and a semi-health lunch for all of us. 
    I find that so many parents put their kids way further up on the priority list than their own health, and I want to change the narrative that it has to be either them or you that gets what they need. 
    Enjoy the episode. It’s a raw and real discussion about how hard this all really is.

    Why riding the “line of fine” never gets you to fulfill your life’s purpose. With Meghan Walker.

    Why riding the “line of fine” never gets you to fulfill your life’s purpose. With Meghan Walker.

    When I asked my business coach, Meghan Walker to come on the podcast, I thought we’d talk about the broken health care system. I thought we’d talk about how expensive it is to run health care, and why we need an overhaul in the way we work with patients. This is what she has helped me understand and has helped us birth programs such as The Wild Collective and The Fundamentals of Macronutrients and my clinician program The Confident Clinician Club.
    Except that’s not exactly what we talked about.
    Because without understanding your purpose, none of those things will really matter to you. 
    You won’t consider a group program for your health if you don’t have a reason to feel well. If you don’t feel connected to your happiness and your life’s work then you won’t see the return on investment of being less tired. 
    So this is actually a conversation about purpose. And why you need one. STAT.
    People without purposes are just people emptying dishwashers and commuting to work. People with a purpose are inspired to take care of themselves, and each other. They are those who take health care offerings by the horns and help themselves get better. 
    This episode will leave you rethinking your life’s work (and we don’t mean the paper-pushing kind of work) and your health. It will help you think differently about where your values lie and make you question where all of your time is going. 
    Enjoy. It’s a good one.

    Creating a greener home without overwhelm. Trust us, it’s possible.

    Creating a greener home without overwhelm. Trust us, it’s possible.

    When I asked Emma Rohmann to be a guest on the show, I was a little nervous. I personally shy away from the environmental medicine conversation because I’ve often found it to be both blamey and shamey but also downright overwhelming. Emma takes her background in environmental engineering and her desire to help families have accessible green-home options and gives us amazing tips on how to easily start lowering your toxic exposures through personal care products, cleaning products and our overall buying behaviours.
    Environmental toxicity has a hormonal effect with toxins influencing conditions such as endometriosis and our risk for breast cancer. Although the conversation can be overwhelming and scary, it’s a necessary first step for all of us to take social responsibility and to improve our personal exposures.
    Emma offers amazing information on her website at www.greenathome.ca and through her private Facebook group. You can find her on Instagram at @emma_greenathome

    Getting a coach. Why my coach makes all the difference to my commitment to exercise.

    Getting a coach. Why my coach makes all the difference to my commitment to exercise.

    I think when people see my weightlifting or exercise online they imagine that I blissfully waltz into my basement alone and hammer out reps loving every second of it.
    I must, right? Otherwise why would I do it?
    Here’s the secret. I don’t always love it. Actually, there is a huge percentage of the time that I don’t love the actual exercising. So what’s my secret to showing up for myself day after day?
    Let me introduce you to my coach: Michael D’Angelo (@coachmichael91)
    Michael and I have been working together for a short while, but during the “hardest” exercise moments of my life. He helped me go from crying in my basement back to my pre-pandemic strength in less than 4 months.
    In today’s conversation we talk about the importance of accountability, personalized support in your exercise and why it’s so damn hard to work out alone. I’m vulnerable about my own challenges with maintaining an exercise routine through the pandemic, and what the most “successful” exercisers have in common.
