#19 The Prenatal Dietitian: An Interview With Kristin Brown
We were super excited to interview Kristin Brown on the show, Dietitian and owner of Grounded Health. Don’t shy away from listening if “prenatal nutrition” isn’t your thing... it was really about so much more than that.

This really matters and not many people are talking about it! Kristin's posts are filled with evidence based nutrition information tailored to women in the phases of fertility and pregnancy. BUT that doesn’t mean that you can’t benefit from her educational posts if this is not you. She shares tonnes of valuable, beautifully packaged tidbits of information when it comes to nutrition, and overall health and wellness.

#12 Replace These 5 Toxic Cleaners Now With Nadine Marshall
We met Nadine almost 5 years ago at a Delta Hotel health fair and we connected instantly…it was like love at first sight. You can’t help but vibrate at a higher level after being in Nadine's presence. If you know Nadine through her yoga classes, essential oil education, or past life as a vet tech then you know what I mean. Nadine is an educator. She inspires and empowers people to ask questions and dive deep into the answers. Although the title of this podcast is about household cleaning products it really ended up being about so much more than that. What you will take away from this conversational episode is an appreciation for why we need to be more curious and ask more questions when it comes to our health. We have been conditioned to believe that the everyday things we use to clean our environment and our bodies are safe. In this episode we hone in on fragrances and cleaning products.
