Episode 210: Ocean Atlas, Author of Nonbinary for Beginners
All humans want to be acknowledged and valued. It's a basic need, and for those who lie outside the norm in any way, often they don't get that need fulfilled. Gender is one of those areas, and it causes a lot of confusion for people who fit neatly within the norm, and a lot of mental anguish for those who don't fit. This is why this week's guest Ocean Atlas wrote Nonbinary for Beginners, (https://www.amazon.com/Nonbinary-Beginners-Everything-pronouns-thinking/dp/B0B95ZCCM7) an incredibly well written book book about all things related to people outside the typically accepted boy or girl boxes. In this fascinating episode, Ocean explains the importance of being respected and accepted for who we are, and helps us understand how we can do that for everyone. We also talk about Pronouns, how to use them, why to use them and how they show respect. Gender vs sexuality Binary vs nonbinary HUMAN Equality, and how that’s what we should all be striving for!

I was lucky enough to grow up on a farm in Southern England which gave me a great love for nature and the outdoor life and on top of that my mother was a professional chef who allowed me from a very young age to help and watch her in the kitchen. This was the beginning of my love for food. I have travelled extensively and lived in different parts of the world. This has given me the opportunity to experience different cultures, cuisines and lifestyles. Having had a career in the health and beauty industry for over 30 years, I was always amazed to see how simple lifestyle and nutritional changes could improve not only women’s health and well-being but also their happiness. Throughout my career journey, my underlying passion has always been about improving midlife women’s health using the power of nutrition, lifestyle modifications and mindset. It gives me great pleasure to help midlife women overcome their health issues so that they can look and feel amazing. I truly believe that with good nutritious food, a positive mindset and health promoting lifestyle choices the body can heal itself and age healthily. My aim is to focus on positive nutrition - it's not about restriction, it's about what we can include in our diet for maximum health. I combine my understanding, enthusiasm and passion with my love of food to help people become the best versions of themselves. When I'm not at work I enjoy spending time with my family, cooking, being in the kitchen and experimenting with new recipe ideas. I am also a keen scuba diver, golfer, hiker, beekeeper and enjoy being in the great outdoors. I am British but am living in Swe
