    22/10/2018 Duration: 52min

    On today’s episode, we are talking about our different experiences within our third trimesters of pregnancy and what this trimester taught us outside of the first two. We wanted to share some encouragement and a few pieces that we found helped us make it through these last months and weeks of pregnancy. We wanted to get into both the nutrition side as well as the emotional side because both play such a huge role within pregnancy and your postpartum journey. We’re sharing why persistence is key, a few of the top nutrients to focus on in this final stretch, some different aspects of preparing emotional for baby. It’s so interesting to see the different perspectives from person to person and even from baby to baby and we hope that today’s episode will serve to encourage you as you continue to grow and nourish your little one and prepare to meet your precious baby.

    Today’s episode is all about pregnancy and who better to dig into the topic with than the expert herself, Lily Nichols, RD. Lily is the author of Real Food for Pregnancy and Real Food for Gestational Diabetes and is so beautifully bridging the gap between the conventional medicine and functional medicine approaches to prenatal nutrition and wellness and empowering pregnant mamas with her evidence-based knowledge. On today’s episode, Lily shares how she’s married a real food approach to nutrition with her conventional nutrition training and how this has helped her to begin to shift the prenatal wellness paradigm for the better. She also dives into what inspired her to write her second book, Real Food for Pregnancy,  as well as the topics we all have questions about–how to deal with nausea, vomiting and food aversions; food fears, her take on food safety and all those “no-no” pregnancy foods; and a bit on her recommendations for blood sugar testing.

    Success is truly in the eye of the beholder and we by no means have got it all together, but there are daily rituals that we’ve created for ourselves that have helped us to focus better on our families and our dreams and to live lives we truly love. On today’s Colorful Eats episode, we’re both sharing 4 daily habits that have helped us cultivate success within our personal and professional lives.

    Episode 95: Postpartum Health + Why it Matters For Your Future

    24/09/2018 Duration: 42min

    Today’s episode is a first for us, but as you may have figured out by now–we love talking about real life and keeping our content true to our hearts and lives! Postpartum health is not a topic you hear a whole lot about in mainstream health or media–at least not a lot of helpful information–yet it’s a chapter in life that can truly make or break your health journey and even your experience as a new mother. Creating a human from scratch is a miraculous feat–one that demands an incredible amount of energy and nutrients and requires a period of time for healing afterwards. On today’s episode, we’re sharing our take on postpartum health (hint: it has nothing to do with getting your pre-pregnancy abs back), how to nourish your body and baby best during this time and a few super helpful tips for supporting your health through this chapter so you can truly thrive as “mommy”. Motherhood is an incredible journey and our hope is that you can prioritize your wellbeing so that you can best serve your beautiful family

    17/09/2018 Duration: 38min

    Today’s episode is a little different than our usual focus, but we’re talking about something that is near and dear to both of our hearts. As business owners and passionate women, we tend to get a lot of questions about how we got started and what has contributed to our success as Nutritional Therapy Practitioners so today we wanted to share a few ways to help other passionate women get their own dream businesses off the ground and into action. On today’s episode, we’re sharing 4 tips to help you start a business with passion and heart. From just pressing start to serving your audience with authentic heart, these actionable tips will help you overcome some of the common obstacles new businesses face and create an income producing business right off the bat. We are always encouraging women to live out their passion and to start the businesses they’ve always dreamed of–it’s what we’ve done in our own lives and believe that every woman has a gift to share with the world.

    Episode 93: How Modern Radiation Exposure is Affecting You with Aileen Chen of Belly Armor


    Today we’re digging into a new topic–one that has been a big piece of our personal lives and education with clients, but one we haven’t addressed directly on the podcast yet. We invited Aileen Chen on the podcast, co-founder and CEO of Belly Armor, a company dedicated to increasing awareness about the health risks from EMF radiation and provide simple, effective solutions to reduce exposure. Aileen shares her story and where her own awareness for this topic began, what radiation is, where it comes from and how it is affecting us, and who is at the highest risk for adverse health issues related to radiation exposure. She also digs into the topic of radiation and pregnancy, an area most would be surprised by. But with all the info, we wanted to make sure this episode didn’t create fear, rather a greater awareness with some actionable info to help you protect yourself and your family. Aileen shares so many ways to do so on today’s episode and really serves to empower individuals and families through Belly Armo

    03/09/2018 Duration: 50min

    Today we are diving into the popular Ketogenic diet–what it is, what it’s all about and why anyone would want to willingly jump into this diet! As Nutritional Therapy Practitioners, we’re sharing our take on the Keto diet, a few of the “pros” and some of the “cons” and why this diet can be amazing for some, but not so much for others. We get a lot of questions about this diet specifically, but also on other diet trends and on today’s episode we wanted to make sure to clear up our thoughts and feelings on diets, in general. We’re big fans of creating balance within your food and lifestyle and we’re openly sharing how we feel about these trendy diets. Since so much can be said about the Ketogenic diet, we wanted to share some resources with you in case you want to dig deeper. These resources cover both sides of the coin, those in favor and those less excited about the Keto diet so please take the time to look into each thoroughly if you’re considering trying it out.

    27/08/2018 Duration: 46min

    Today we invited a gal we’ve been hardcore crushing on lately, Lindsay Surowitz of Weeknight Bite, to talk about all things balance and simplicity within the world of healthy eating. This is an area that most women struggle with so we asked Lindsay to share some of the ways she helps her clients and loved ones break down the guilt so many of us feel when it comes to healthy living (and we LOVE what she’s got to say!). Lindsay shares her tips and tricks for creating balance around community and food (something that can be super overwhelming) and how she’s learned to blend the two so well together, despite having friends that don’t eat the same or trying to navigate tough restaurant meals. We love Lindsay’s take on the healthy life and know you’ll be inspired by her journey and encouragement. You can connect with Lindsay and catch more of her sunshine over on Weeknight Bite or Instagram! Thank you to the Nutritional Therapy Association for sponsoring this episode!

    Today’s episode was so fun and so educational, even for Caroline and I! We invited a dear friend and Director of Marketing for Primally Pure, Courtney O’Connor, to share her amazing non-toxic skincare experience and knowledge as a Holistic Esthetician with us. Let me tell you friend, you are in for a real treat! Courtney shares how her obsession with beauty magazines and creating spa days for her buds as an 11 year old morphed into an intense passion for creating beauty from the inside out and looking at our skin as a reflection of our body’s internal environment. “The skin is brilliant at revealing imbalances within the body.” On today’s episode, Courtney gives us her take on the oh-so-popular chemical peels and intense facial treatments, what this obsession is actually doing to our skin (the opposite of what you’d hope for) and what you can do to create healthier skin using natural methods like facial massage and non-toxic products that actually work.

    28/05/2018 Duration: 25min

    On today’s episode, we’re talking about a subject that is quite controversial and incredibly personal, one that most women know little about despite popping it daily–hormonal birth control. As holistic Nutritional Therapists, we wanted to dig into the topic a little deeper in order to help our listeners understand how this all too common medication is affecting women’s health today and the potential long term effects so few are talking about. Learn how hormonal birth control works within our bodies, how it can affect our physical and emotional health and the common–yet rarely discussed–side effects of short and long term use. When you’re messing with hormones, you’re messing with fire and far too many women are unknowingly dealing with the effects they may not even know are stemming from their use of hormonal birth control. Our desire for this episode is to begin a conversation about hormonal birth control, not to create fear or pass judgement, but rather to help you to be better informed on a topic that
