And it is such a sacred time that I think we have lost a lot of the beauty around how sacred that time is in this really fast-paced life that we are all living today.” (11:10) “I don't mean by being proactive that I want you to dive into that worry because that is not going to serve you in any way. But there are things that we know that we can take intelligent and proactive action on. And when it comes to those things, I want you to be very committed to doing them and being on top of them.” (20:03) “Food is information, it is so important. And really think of that information as input that determines the output. Both for you and for your super baby.” (23:14) “When you don't eat those things, and then you do bring them back in, you can't help but notice that they just don't make you feel that good.” (34:05) “Just because everybody else is doing it, doesn't mean it is the right thing and it doesn't mean it is the right thing for us.
