Clean Food, Dirty Stories
About This Show
I share my own stories as well as other women's, to hopefully entertain, encourage and inspire others. The world needs more stories, and I love true, human stories best of all. Often the women's stories are linked to something that they're doing with their lives now, be it in their personal lives or in business. And I love finding and sharing a 'clean food tip' with a fruit, veg, spice or other culinary tidbit that could have 'saved the day', or just come in handy in that particular situation. We learn, but we also have a lot of fun!
