Ep173: Common Misconceptions about Intuitive Eating (Part 2)
Today in part 2 I’ll share a few more misconceptions about intuitive eating, and within them, we finally get to talk about two aspects I know you’ll be especially curious about: “is there any science behind intuitive eating and its principles?”, as well as whether or not we can be ethical vegans or have other philosophical or religious dietary choices and practice intuitive eating, and much more. Let’s get straight to it! I highly recommend reading or listening to part 1 first before continuing on with today’s post and episode. For the links mentioned in today's episode, click here.

Ep172: Common Misconceptions about Intuitive Eating (Part 1)
In today's episode I'll be introducing you to the wonderful framework of intuitive eating by discussing what it is and what it isn't, in the hopes that you'll be inspired to find out more, read the book and use its wonderful wisdom to help improve your relationship with food and find peace with it. There are so many misconceptions about intuitive eating out there, and it can be so helpful, especially if you've struggled through years of dieting, or the restrictive-binge eating/emotional eating loop. We also discuss a big question, can we be ethical vegans AND practice the principles of intuitive eating? There's so much to get into in this episode, and we'll continue the conversation in part 2 next week. For all the links mentioned in todays episode, click here.

Ep171: Mini Q & A: How do I Avoid Feeling Guilty after Eating Foods I had Previously Avoided Eating
In today’s mini Q and A, I answer a question I received from one of our Sams, all about the familiar feelings of guilt around food, especially when we’re trying to improve our relationship with food and have a neutral approach to foods and ingredients we perhaps once labelled as “bad”, “forbidden”, “unhealthy”, “high calorie”, “high carb”, “highly processed”, or whatever the food fear du jour is, all stemming form the wonderful framework that is intuitive eating. Today I answer this question from a very gentle perspective, one that will hopefully help keep these feelings of guilt at bay. Understanding that they don’t serve us in the long run, and explaining how part of this journey to a more neutral place with food and a more gentle approach to eating has two sides to it, one where we tame the loud food police voices we have about certain foods, but one where we must also do the work of taming the perfection police voice within ourselves.

Ep166: Our Beloved Attachment to Cheese + a HUGE Announcement!
In today’s post and episode I wanted to address our attachment to cheese, which isn’t a bad thing, nor the thing or craving that shall not be named once you go vegan, but that can in fact help us on our vegan journey when we have awareness of it. I’m going to share some personal and family cheese stories to show you just how present it is in our culture no matter where we come from, and how my mindset shifted and my way of experiencing veganism completely changed along the way. I’ll also share why I think we’ve been going about the “saying goodbye to cheese as a vegan” thing all wrong, and why it’s ok to miss certain animal foods that have been such a huge part of our eating lives, of our culture, and of our food memories. To finish I’ll be giving you four very practical and simple tips to incorporate some cheesy goodness in your life asap. Plus we share a HUGE announcement that we hope will get you just as excited as we are! For the links mentioned in today's episode, click here

Ep165: Quarantine Body Image Struggles and Finding your Triggers (Part 2)
In today's episode, we expand from last week's part 1, and explore our body image struggles by finding our triggers through some journaling prompts and exercises. For many of us, COVID, quarantine and lockdown were huge triggers when it came to our body image, and we can take this opportunity to find others. Then we'll dive in deep to look for our limiting beliefs on food, body, exercise and weight. They'll come in handy later on in the season, when we'll work on changing them one by one, pulling out those pesky weeds that keep popping back up again and again.

In these very challenging times we're facing during COVID and the huge and necessary social justice movement that is now in the forefront, to help and defend black lives, I thought I'd share my thoughts and the resources that have helped me be a better ally for BIPOC. Today I’ll be talking about why the fight for one of these issues is the fight for the other, why it's necessary for change to be uncomfortable, why we're all going to make mistakes in our advocacy and why that shouldn't deter us.

Ep158: Hitting the Pause Button and Why it’s Good for the Soul! We’re Back with Season 8!
We're back with season 8 of the podcast! We have so many great episodes in store for you this season, and today I thought I'd welcome you back to our little Thursday date with a quick summer recap, a sneak peek into what will be in store for you this season, and a very important topic I believe is key to success when it comes to being more productive, changing any habit we wish to change, practicing new skills and much more: the importance of hitting that pause button and taking breaks without guilt. I'll give you tons of ideas of how this can be done even when we can't take an actual holiday, and how this can apply to our exercise habits, our cooking and eating, our creativity, our work, our hobbies, and why we might have an old belief typically engrained in childhood, that can be affecting us even as adults when finding our stride. Make sure to check out the post that goes with this episode below, since I'm sharing lots of personal photos from our little pause button break.
