7336
Today’s episode is all about overcoming fear of flying, which has been one of my personal biggest fears FOREVER. I have two guests today—Melissa Tiers, a multi-award winning author, lecturer and international hypnosis trainer specializing in practical neuroscience for clinicians, and Patrick Smith, the best-selling author of Ask the Pilot books and a practicing pilot for a major US airline. My hope is that between the two of them, we’re really attacking a fear of flying from all angles, and that this an episode you can share with any friends or family members who are afraid of flying and that you can come back to again and again until you feel safe, calm, and even excited to be in the air. This episode includes: how to trust that your pilot isn’t sleep deprived or intoxicated the exact level and type of training pilots receive if budget or international carriers are still safe enough to fly the 3 reasons flying has gotten SO MUCH safer since the 1980s turbulence: what it is, why we’re afraid of it, and why it’s not dangerous tips and tricks to avoid feeling turbulence (where to sit, what time of day to fly) what happens when there’s a real emergency on the plane (and exactly when and how you’ll know) why you shouldn’t be afraid of bad weather, dings and pings, the plane slowing down after takeoff, and aborted landings how to harness your neurology break habituated patterns of anxiety 3 science-backed techniques to instantly eliminate anxiety while booking, boarding, and while you’re actually in the air a 5-min guided meditation to help get rid of fear of flying PS: My very first product is live!!!

5302
I’m so excited to welcome Courtnie from @courtandnate to the pod to talk all about van life! I discovered Court and Nate’s page on TikTok during quarantine and became completely fascinated with the idea of living in a van, traveling between all of these beautiful places. And while this episode will answer all of your voyeuristic questions about van life, like how they deal with pooping and how much it costs and if it’s actually as aesthetic as it looks on social media, it ended up really being about the ideas behind van life. Namely: simplifying things. Scaling back, paring down. Living with intention. Not working a ton of hours just to get a promotion to get more money you don’t have time to spend. Not filling a house with things that stop bringing you joy after having them for a few weeks. Thinking about what life you REALLY want, and what makes you ACTUALLY happy. On this episode, we talk about: why they decided to do van life and how they got started her advice to anyone who wants to make a life change or take a big risk what a normal work day looks like while living in a van relationship lessons from living in a van how to separate your worth from what society deems fiscally valuable exactly how to simplify your life (and become way happier in the process!) the surprising benefits of NOT striving for wealth or professional success all the dirty deets of peeing and pooping in a van the most beautiful places she’s been in her van life the best and worst parts of van life the one diet that completely changed her relationship with food and helped her heal her disordered eating her healthy morning and evening routines how to be who YOU are, outside of other people and society’s expectations I’ve been thinking about a lot of what we discussed in this episode for weeks, and I’d LOVE to hear your thoughts, so definitely tag me on social media—I’m @lizmoody, and Courtnie is @courtandnate.

6199
We’re kicking off a brand new series today which I am personally very excited about—it’s called Thriving Through Anxiety. I wanted to create a series about how the bad things in our life can actually turn into some of the most transformative, rich, beautiful parts. In this episode, I’ve interviewed two of my favorite women on the internet about their anxiety stories. First up is Cameron Rogers, aka @freckledfoodie, sharing: what “high-performing anxiety” is and how it impacted her life how her pregnancy has impacted her anxiety (including why she’s taking anti-anxiety medicine during her pregnancy) the clear instructions she gave her partner for dealing with her anxiety a VERY frank & honest discussion about how her relationship with money has impacted her anxiety what influencer life is like behind the scenes the 3 things that have helped her anxiety the most (and the things she’s tried that haven’t worked at all) how she views anxiety as one of her superpowers Then, I chatted with Remy Park, the woman behind @veggiekins, about: the various ways her anxiety has manifested, from her eating disorder to OCD to substance abuse her genius tip for finding an effective therapist her coping mechanisms for getting through her recent big breakup (including how she was brave enough to make the leap in the first place) how she deals with the anxiety that comes from the hates crimes against AAPI community the daily practices that help her anxiety the most the Eastern medicine practices she learned living in China that help with her anxiety how her veganism has impacted her anxiety My hope from these episodes is that, first and foremost, you’ll come away feeling less alone. I also hope you get some actionable tips and tricks and tools that can help you on your own journey, but also, maybe that it can help in a larger way to reframe something like anxiety as a beautiful, integral part of your experience on this planet.

Ask The Doctor: Diet and Weight Loss Myths Edition—Cutting Through Misinformation To Get To The True Science Of Weight
6993
My Ask the Doctor series was built around the idea that functional doctors have SO much incredible information about transforming our health, but the really great ones can be hard to find, tricky to get appointments with, and unfortunately quite expensive. On these episodes, I invite on the best doctors in the world and ask them all of my questions—and yours!—about a topic. We have Ask the Doctor episodes about hormones, longevity, gut health, anxiety, skincare, and more, so definitely check those out! This episode features Dr. Rangan Chatterjee, one of the most influential medical doctors in the UK. Dr Chatterjee is the host of the most listened to health podcast in the UK and Europe, Feel Better, Live More, and has written four Sunday Times best-selling books, including his most recent, Feel Great, Lose Weight. He hosts his own wellness show on BBC Radio, regularly appears on BBCNews and Television, and his TED talk, How To Make Disease Disappear, has been viewed over 3 million times. On this episode, we cover: The efficacy of calorie counting The impact of various diets on weight, including more wellness-y diets like keto and paleo The role that protein, fat, and carbs in weight loss The overlooked lifestyle elements that play a HUGE role in our weight How our microbiomes impact our weight What our metabolism actually IS, and what impacts how fast or slow it goes What changes Dr. Chatterjee recommends as we get older How the hormones leptin, ghrelin, cortisol, and insulin all impact our weight The role of privilege in weight management A 3-step exercise to deal with food cravings—and figure out what you’re really hungry for How different types of workouts (cardio, weight lifting) impact our weight Plus his take on caffeine, fruit, intermittent fasting, alcohol, and more! IMPORTANT: I want to be completely clear—this is not an episode that will tell you to count calories, restrict your food, or maintain an unhealthy weight to look a certain way that the  media tells you to. This episode is all about BUSTING the myths and lies of diet culture and getting to a place of food freedom, arming with you with the real science you need to feel your best and support your health. But—if the topic of weight loss, even around the concept of reframing it, rejecting diets, and taking beautiful care of your body—is at all is triggering, I totally get that, and I’d invite you not to listen to this episode—I won’t be at all offended. As you’ll hear in this episode, so much about our weight involves figuring out what’s best for US individually, and I want you to feel empowered to decide whether listening to an episode that talks about weight in any way fits into that for you. Dr Chatterjee and I would love to hear any thoughts, feelings, things you’ve learned as you’re listening, so definitely screenshot and tag us on Instagram—I’m @lizmoody and he’s @drchatterjee. I’d also so love if you’d share with anyone in your life you think could benefit from this episode! PS: Have you snagged my Foodie preset pack?

The Pros & Cons of Having Kids
6552
I am SO excited to share today’s episode, which is all about the pros and cons of having kids. It came out of an Instagram Q&A where someone asked what Zack and I were doing, and I said we were undecided and then asked people how they decided—and the responses were so fascinating, I knew I had to make it into a podcast.  This episode features: Best-selling author Meghan Daum on the choice to remain childfree Ambitious Kitchen’s Monique Volz on birth, and how being a new mom impacts marriage Sophie Jaffe on an unexpected struggle of pregnancy and healing her own childhood through her parenting Plus, dozens of anonymous comments from listeners about the true realities of parenting AND being childfree I know that i can’t produce a comprehensive episode about a topic this deep and important—as Meghan Daum said in our interview, it’s perhaps the most existential decision we face—but I do think there’s a lot of food for thought here, and a lot for you to discuss with friends, family members, and partners. As I often say, I think a huge part of wellness is being as happy and healthy in all parts of your life, and having kids is a huge part of that, so I can’t wait to have this discussion with you. I can’t wait to hear what your feedback on this episode!

How You—Yes, YOU!—Can Help Make Wellness More Diverse and Accessible
6111
Today’s long overdue podcast is about why accessibility and diversity have been such a problem in the wellness world, and how we can all begin to support that changing. I wanted to feature people from different aspects of the wellness world to really paint a larger picture about the limiting factors at play, from doctor bias to the lack of diversity in workout studios to the unique challenges of breaking into the food startup world—to illustrate that there’s no part of the wellness world that’s untouched by this problem. My first guest today is Chrissy King, a writer, speaker, fitness and strength coach, as well as the teacher of the Anti-Racism for Wellness Professionals Class, which I’m signed up for. You can find Chrissy online at chrissyking.com, and on Instagram @iamchrissyking. We talk about why anti-racism work is fundamental to wellness, what you can personally do when your favorite wellness spots (gyms, restaurants) aren’t diverse, and what needs to happen AFTER we educate ourselves in order to create real change. My next guest today is Ibhraeem Basir, the founder of A Dozen Cousins, one of my favorite food brands. You can find A Dozen Cousins online at adozencousins.com and on Instagram @adozencousins. We talk about what anyone can do to support the expansion and success of Black-founded businesses, his advice for anyone worried about cultural appropriation in the food world , and his company’s social initiatives to help bring healthy eating to communities in need. My last guest today is Dr. Tosin Odunsi, an Obstetrics & Gynecology physician. She’s the founder of The Mentorship Squad, a community comprised of Black and Latinx women seeking mentorship along their journey to becoming U.S. physicians. You can find Dr. Odunsi on instagram @lifebytosin and online at lifebytosin.com. We discuss why many common wellness treatments today actually have their roots in the abuse of Black people, why Black people consistently have higher rates of acute and chronic diseases, including COVID-19, and why only 5% of doctors are Black, and only 2% are Black women—and how we can help change those numbers. This is an important episode, and I hope its startles you, inspires you, and makes you think, I’d love to hear your thoughts and learnings on Instagram–please screenshot and tag me (@lizmoody) and my guests and share your thoughts.

The Healthier Together Podcast is proud to support Partake Foods. When Denise Woodard’s daughter was diagnosed with severe food allergies as an infant, Denise looked for healthy & safe snacks, came up short, & decided to make her own. That’s how Partake was born. Now in retailers nationwide, including Target, Partake cookies are gluten-free, vegan, and free of the top 14 allergens and come in a variety of crunchy and soft-baked flavors. Food allergies, which affect 1 in 13 kids, are shown to be more likely in black children. Getting safe food into the hands of the Black community with allergies is a top priority for Partake, so the entire month of June, 10% of total sales on Partake’s website will go to the amazing efforts of Food Equality Initiative to ensure food insecure families have access to the food, education and advocacy they need. They were kind enough to share a discount code—if you shop on PartakeFoods.com during the month of June, you can get 10% off your order and free shipping on $20 or more with code HEALTHIERTOGETHER. We’re also proud to support The Honey Pot Company, a plant-powered feminine care company. In addition to healthy feminine washes, wipes, organic cotton tampons, and herb-infused menstrual pads, they also offer natural anti-itch cream, herb and boric acid suppositories, and more. They truly have pretty much everything you need to keep your vagina healthy and happy. Also, they’re packaging is truly too cute. I’ve seen them in a ton of retail stores so definitely go to www.thehoneypot.co to find a retailer near you. Healthier Together cover art by Zack. Healthier Together music by Alex Ruimy.

Lauren Bosworth—Life After Reality TV, Overcoming Depression & Anxiety, and Starting A Bad-Ass Business
5690
On today’s episode, I sat down to chat  with Lauren Bosworth, the former star of Laguna Beach & The Hills and the current bad-ass woman behind Love Wellness. We recorded this right after self-isolation for COVID-19 had begun, so it had to be virtual not in real life like most of my episodes, so please excuse any audio quality issues (although I worked with my editor to make it as good as possible!). This is a scary time, but I wanted to have this episode mostly NOT be about COVID-19, although we do of course touch on it briefly. If you want more resources and support around that, please come hang out on Instagram—I’m offering a ton of guidance, community, and fun dance parties there. But I hope this episode is a bit of a respite. Lauren talks about: How being on reality TV as a teenager impacted her personality Her secret to making homemade food healthy & delicious Her depression and anxiety journey and how she finally got the diagnosis that allowed her to heal How she deals with life-inspired anxiety, like the COVID-19 virus The cooking show cancellation that ended up being an unexpected positive Her breakup and why she’s embracing being single The practices she does daily for her mental & physical health How she started her mega-successful business, and her advice for any other entrepreneurs You can find Lauren on Instagram at @lobosworth, and we’d both love to hear your reactions to this episode, so please screenshot and write any thoughts or questions that come up as you’re listening and tag us both (I’m @lizmoody).

You can find Garden of Life at Whole Foods, but the best way to support the podcast is to use the links here, which I’ve also put on my Instagram highlights. By using my links, it just tells Garden of Life that you found them through the pod, and it doesn’t cost you anything extra, so I’d massively appreciate it. This episode is also sponsored by Califia Farms! I’m a huge fan of all of Califia’s non-dairy products, but I especially love their non-dairy creamer (the one in the carton). I’m a huge fan of making caffeine-free lattes, with super weird flavors like Birthday Cake, Carrot Cake, and Churros, and I love using the Califia almondmilk creamer as the base for that, since it makes it super creamy and delicious. It’s also of course great in coffee or tea!

Lauren Singer—How To Feel Empowered (Not Depressed) About The Environment, Simple Ways To Go Low Waste & Creating A Career For Good
5185
My guest today is Lauren Singer, the woman behind the blog and Instagram handle Trash Is For Tossers and the founder of the Package Free Shop. Lauren first gained notoriety when she started living a zero waste life, and was featured on the Today Show, CNN, The Guardian, and more (she even gave a Ted talk!). Now, she’s the successful business woman behind the mega-successful Package Free Shop, which has a brick and mortar store in Brooklyn and an online store, and is the home to everything you need to cut back on waste in your life, from menstrual cups to beeswax wraps to bar shampoo to metal straws. I’m gonna be honest: while I care deeply about the environment, I wouldn’t normally listen to a podcast about it, simply because I find the subject so depressing, mostly because I feel like there’s so little I can do that actually makes a real difference on a national or global level. But I promise—this episode is not depressing AT ALL. It’s truly so empowering—you’ll come away juiced and feeling positive about the direction of the world. It’s a great episode if you’re looking to live a lower waste life, but it’s also a great one if you’re interested in living a more conscious life, or working at a job that you feel represents your values and makes the world a better place. We get into Lauren’s career path, her advice for other social entrepreneurs, and how she grew a business for good. We also talk about her personal life: what she does for self care, what she eats in a day, how she combats hormonal depression, and more. I can’t wait to hear your thoughts, so please share them—I’m @lizmoody on Instagram and Lauren is @trashisfortossers. We can’t wait to continue the conversation! Enjoy!

Marie Forleo—Simple Solutions For The Biggest Relationship, Dating, Career, and Mental Health Problems
4781
I have an AWESOME guest for you on the show today—the incomparable Marie Forleo. Marie is a powerhouse of a woman. She was named by Oprah as a thought leader for the next generation, and is the NYTimes best-selling author of the freshly released Everything Is Figureoutable. She also hosts MarieTV and created B-School. In this episode, we talk about the crazy career journey that took her from bartending and working multiple jobs to being the powerhouse businesswoman she is today. Because Marie has spent years as a life coach, I really pressed her for actionable tips about all parts of life: going after your dream life, having success in dating and in long term relationships, and even dealing with health issues like anxiety. She shares her advice for meeting a partner when it really seems like there’s no one good out there and the communication secrets she’s used in her personal relationship to keep it healthy and happy for over a decade, including her thoughts on couples therapy. We get into money stuff: does it matter? How much? How do you know if you should quit your 9-5 and pursue a passion job? Should everyone do their passion as work? We talk about loneliness, and how it’s the epidemic of our time, and she offers some very pragmatic actionable tips to deal with loneliness that I’ve never heard before. She also shares a genius tip for telling the difference between intuition and anxiety. I hope you come away from this episode inspired to live your best life in every single way, which, to me, is really what it means to be healthy. As always, I’d love to hear from you what’s resonating, so screenshot & tag both me (@lizmoody) and Marie (@marieforleo) on Instagram—we’d love to continue the conversation!

Monique from Ambitious Kitchen AND Jeanine From Love & Lemons: How To ACTUALLY Make Your Dream Life & Career Happen
6207
I have not one but two amazing guests for you today—Monique Volz from Ambitious Kitchen and Jeanine Donofrio from Love and Lemons. They’re both incredibly successful food bloggers, and Monique is also the woman behind the vintage rug company Ambitious Home. Jeanine, meanwhile, has written two best-selling (and gorgeously designed!) cookbooks—Love & Lemons and Love & Lemons Everyday. Beyond that, though, they’re lovely, wonderful people who’ve managed how to balance having an amazing career and an amazing life. I sat down with them to record a live episode at my Chicago book tour stop (although unlike other book tour stops, this is more of a traditional interview—although I chime in at the end to answer audience questions!). I called this the “How To ACTUALLY Make Your Dream Life & Career Happen” episode because I grilled both women about exactly that: how they financially made it work to quit their full time jobs to pursue their dreams, how they knew what their passion was, how to create content that resonates with audiences, how to find your passion (even if you’re not sure what it is!!), how to network and make friends in your community, and so much more. If you’ve ever thought about pursuing a passion-based career, this is a must-listen to episode—and if you just love Jeanine and Monique (who doesn’t?) I think you’ll love getting to know them on a deeper level too. Definitely tag all three of us (@lizmoody, @loveandlemons, and @ambitiouskitchen) with your feedback or thoughts on the episode, and any other questions you’d like us to answer! Enjoy!

Danielle Walker—The Foods That Helped Her Heal, Secrets To A Long, Successful Marriage & How She Built Her Mega-Popular Brand
6144
I have an amazing guest for you today—Danielle Walker. Danielle is the New York Times best-selling author of four amazing cookbooks, the Against All Grain series (my favorite is Eat What You Love, but they’re all delish!). She started eating paleo after being diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in her twenties, an autoimmune disease that would leave her bed ridden for months. We talk a lot about her diagnosis on this episode, including how she came to decide that the paleo diet was the best one for her, if she’s ever tried other diets, if she thinks everyone should eat paleo, and a ton of other food stuff. We also talk about the emotional impact of having a chronic illness—how it impacts her life as a mom, as a spouse, and more. Danielle has also built an incredible, thriving business, so talk about building a brand, including how much you should spend at the beginning — and if you can still achieve Danielle’s level of success today or if the market is too saturated. If you’ve ever struggled with any type of chronic disease, whether it’s physical or mental, I think you’ll really enjoy this episode, and if you’re at all interested in building your own wellness brand, it’s a must listen. I also love our conversations about parenting—I’m so impressed with Danielle’s approach to being a mom, but also taking care of herself. I hope you find Danielle as inspiring as I do. You can find Danielle on Instagram @daniellewalker, or on her website, AgainstAllGrain.com.

Rachael DeVaux—Every Healthy Eating Question, Answered: Losing Weight, Balancing Hormones, Healing Gut Issues & More LIVE FROM SEATTLE
4451
This is a special event, live from Seattle book tour stop where there was an amazing crowd—we had the best night, and I hope you feel like you were there in spirit. I was joined on stage by friend Rachael DeVaux (@rachaelsgoodeats), a registered dietitian, the co-owner of Toast Society Cafe, and the founder of her own workout program, Good Sweat. This episode is all about healthy eating—literally answering every single question you’ve ever had about healthy eating, from the broad to the really, really nuanced. We get into whether to eat organic or not, what we actually eat in a day, how to save money on healthy food, thoughts on being paleo, vegan, keto, and more, intermittent fasting, if calories matter, and the best diets for weight loss. We talk about the best healthy desserts, the best healthy pastas, the one food everyone should  eliminate from their diet to be healthier and the one they should add in, the two foods everyone should eat for hormone balance, and tons more. I’ve listened to a ton of healthy eating podcasts, and I often come away feeling like I’ve learned a lot, but I have no idea what to do TODAY in order to be healthier or to solve a specific issue, and I really wanted this episode to answer those questions. You’ll come away EXCITED about healthy eating, but also really knowing what to buy at the grocery store, what to make for breakfast, how to solve your specific gut issues, and more. Rachael is a wealth of knowledge and because this is a live event you’ll hear a bit more from me as well—but you have any lingering questions about healthy eating, please ask on Instagram (@lizmoody and @rachaelsgoodeats)—maybe we’ll do a follow up episode!

I’m so excited about today’s guest, McKel Kooienga (née Hill), a registered dietitian who founded Nutrition Stripped, a brand that includes wellness coaching, healthy eating programs, a cookbook, and a ton more. While she has a thriving business, it’s also abundantly clear how much she’s driven by actually helping people, which is refreshing and more rare than I’d like it to be. I asked for your questions on Instagram (make sure you’re following @lizmoody to send in Qs for future guests), and you really wanted to know about how she’s built such an incredible business and life, so we talk about that a ton. McKel has amazing tips for combating burnout, minimizing stress, and still making a ton of money. We talk about her various revenue streams, what most people get wrong when they start their own company, what she credits with her phenomenal success, and more. We also talk about McKel’s own health issues, including how she beat the debilitating migraines she used to suffer from, and what she thinks are the easiest ways to make over your diet. Finally, we talk about the amazing story of how McKel manifested her husband. I’m a skeptic about manifestation, but this story GOT ME, and I’m so excited for you to hear it.

Kelly LeVeque—Debunking Healthy Eating Myths, Kelly’s Personal Wellness Routine & What It’s Really Like To Work With Celebs
6659
On today’s episode, we dive into all things nutrition with Kelly LeVeque (@bewellbykelly). Kelly is a holistic nutritionist and wellness wonder woman, with a best-selling book, Body Love, and a client list that includes basically every A-lister in Hollywood, including Jessica Alba and Jennifer Garner. She’s also the nicest human being, a total girl next door that you’d want to hang out with on a Saturday afternoon. In this episode, we talk about Kelly’s own health journey, including how she came up with her famous “Fab Four” philosophy. I grill her on the nitty gritty of nutrition, including what types of protein powders are good for you, what supplements we should all be taking, how trendy things like celery juice and collagen fit in and more. Then, we get chatty—I asked her to spill all the dirt on what working with super famous people is actually like, and I was actually really surprised by her answers. We talk about the mega success of Body Love and why her life looks WAY different than most people expect, and we get into her relationship with her brilliant, super hot husband Chris. I’m obsessed with this episode because it’s like a dose of the best healthy eating advice you’ve ever heard mixed in with real talk about relationships, money, and life, with some celeb gossip thrown in. It’s basically my dream conversation, and I hope you love it too. You can find all of the products Kelly mentions in this episode at lizmoody.com/shop. Enjoy!

Chinae Alexander (@chinaealexander) has long been one of my favorite inspirational accounts to follow on Instagram (she also has an amazing podcast, called Press Send). She’s incredibly honest, with unapologetic pictures of things like crotch sweat and arm fat, and insightful, with an ability to find the story and wisdom in everything from an interaction with an Uber driver to her unique Texas upbringing. This conversation represents some of my favorite elements of the Healthier Together podcast—a casual, frank conversation about everything from religion to anxiety to weight loss to pursuing your passion and how that should fit in with earning money. I also grilled Chinae about where she gets her incredible self-confidence, and came away with insights that have changed my life since. Enjoy!

Things You’re Not Supposed To Talk About—Money, Sex, & Body Image with Sophie Jaffe & Courtney Swan LIVE FROM LA
4497
On this special live episode of the Healthier Together podcast, recorded from the LA stop of my book tour, I sat down with two of my favorite women, Sophie Jaffe (@sophie.jaffe) and Courtney Swan (@realfoodology) to talk about “things you’re not supposed to talk about.” We all bonded over having zero filter, so this is an incredibly candid discussion about money (including how we make our money and lots of hard numbers!), sex (definitely don’t listen to this part in the car with kids!), and a super real, raw look at body image. I had a bit of a vulnerability hangover after recording this one, but the content is so good that I couldn’t not share it. I hope you feel like you’re with your most open girlfriends, breaking down the barriers of shame that have made women feel not good enough for centuries.

Lucie Fink — How To Get Your Dream Career, Behind The Scenes Of The Social Media World, And SPECIFIC Tips To Find A Mentor
7623
Lucie Fink (@luciebfink) is the living, breathing embodiment of creating your dream life. The mega-popular host of Refinery29’s Try Living With Lucie series also has her own popular YouTube channel and a bright, colorful Instagram account with hundreds of thousands of followers. None of this was just handed to her, though—Lucie has been hustling since she was young, creating and producing video content long before she was paid for it. In this episode, she breaks down specific actionable tips for getting your dream career (no matter what it is). We also get into the nitty gritty of growing your Instagram, including how often to post, what type of content does well, and how to edit photos—even if you’re not an influencer or an aspiring one, seeing the behind the scenes of what goes into influencer life is absolutely fascinating. Lucie shares how she got her dream job at Refinery29, and then we get into mentorship, including a crazy story about Matt Lauer that you won’t want to miss. We also touch on Lucie’s own health journey—she had her gallbladder removed (and the reason why is connected to birth control, which is fascinating) and is a huge advocate for Ayurveda and other practices. This is a great episode if you have a dream and want to make it real, or if you just want to be inspired by Lucie’s wisdom and infectious joy. Enjoy!

Serena Wolf, Ali Maffucci, and Liz Moody — How To Get Your Partner To Be Healthier, The BEST Diet For Health & Happiness, And Which Wellness Practices ACTUALLY Work
4895
Welcome to a very special episode of the Healthier Together podcast—the Healthier Together book launch LIVE panel. As many of you lovely humans know, I just released my cookbook, also called Healthier Together (and it’s already a number one best seller, thanks to all of your amazing support!). This episode was recorded live at the Healthier Together book launch event, and I think you might like it even more than a traditional episode because you get two amazing guests, and way more of my personal perspective on health, food, and life. My guests are two of my dear friends in the food world: Serena Wolf and Ali Maffucci. You might remember Ali from Episode 8 of the podcast, where she shares her mom’s crazy kidnapping story and how it changed her outlook on life (if you haven’t listened yet, definitely do so!). Ali’s a phenomenal businesswoman—she’s a best-selling author of three cookbooks, the woman behind the Inspiralized brand, and the Inspiralizer, and an amazing mom to her cute son, Luca, on top of all that. I love Ali’s warmth and wisdom, and she has such an amazing positive perspective on food and life that I’m excited to share with you all. Serena is the woman behind the best-selling Dude Diet cookbook, and the amazing site, domesticate-me.com. We’ve bonded over our shared anxiety, but also because she’s truly one of the funniest people I know. Honestly, she kind of bugged me on the panel because she kept saying exactly what I was going to say before I said it—that’s how aligned our life perspectives are. In this episode, we get into healthy eating, chatting about what’s actually the healthiest diet, the food advice that’s total BS, the one food I use to conquer my sweet tooth, and more. We also get into other wellness practices (CBD, how to motivate yourself to workout, adaptogens, and more). Then we get into the “together” element of the book, talking about how to make friends as an adult, how to get your partner to eat healthy when they REALLY don’t want to, how to bond and connect with your partner in the kitchen and out of it, and more. If you’re into healthy eating, healthy living, optimizing relationships, or just living your best life in a way that isn’t painful, annoying, or restrictive, you’re gonna love this episode!

Sahara Rose — Telling The Real From The BS With Ayurveda, Making Money Off Your Own Brand, And Manifesting Your Dreams (Even If Your Parents Don’t Approve)
5851
Sahara Rose (@iamsahararose) is one of the world’s leading Ayurveda experts, but there’s so much more to her story than that. The daughter of immigrants, Sahara had to risk losing it all to find her life path—and while it was (obviously) eventually worth it, it wasn’t an easy journey. Now, Sahara is the best-selling author of The Idiot’s Guide to Ayurveda and Eat Feel Fresh (both of which have a forward from Deepak Chopra—a crazy story that she shares in this episode). We sat down in Sahara’s gorgeous apartment to talk about how she followed her calling, even when her parents didn’t approve. We talk about the health crises that lead her to Ayurveda, including losing her period completely, and how Ayurveda helped her heal. I also make her answer all the nitty gritty questions I’ve ever had about the validity of Ayurveda—what’s worth applying to your life, what’s BS, and what should be tweaked a bit for the modern world. Sahara is a master female entrepreneur, so we also get into the nuts and bolts of building your own brand, including how she grew her following and what parts of her business really make her money.  Sahara is a mover and shaker who’s changing the world—and she’s so so open about everything from her personal life to her finances, which you all know I love. I’m giving away a copy of Sahara’s new cookbook, Eat Feel Fresh, over my Instagram—enter to win on @lizmoody. PS: Wanna come to my book launch in NYC? It’s on April 9. Snag your spot here. PPS: My book comes out next week!! If you want to pre-order, you can get a free 3 day soup cleanse—just screenshot your receipt and send to liz@lizmoody.com. More details here. Enjoy! This episode is brought to you by Siete Foods, one of my favorite brands in the country today.  They make better-for-you Mexican American food, including drool-worthy grain free chips, grain free tortillas, cashew queso, and hot sauces. I literally cook with their products daily—the cassava grain free tortillas are my absolute favorites; they have a great chew and don’t break apart when you roll or fold them.  I also LOVE the Habanero Hot Sauce, which isn’t too spicy but packs in a robust flavor that elevates whatever dish you use it on. You can find Siete products in stores around the country, or you can order them online at sietefoods.com using the code LIZ for an extra 10% off.  Come tell me what you think on Instagram (@lizmoody)—I’m so excited for you to fall in love with the brand like I have!

Kathryn Budig (@kathrynbudig) & Kate Fagan (@katefagan3) are a superstar couple. Kathryn made her names as a internationally renowned yogi and still teaches on Glo.com. She’s also written two books, including Aim True, which contains my favorite healthy spaghettios recipe in the world. Now, she’s moved into designing performance wear with her collection with Kira Grace (the slashed leggings are the best). Kate Fagan spent years as an ESPN host, and wrote the NYTimes best-selling book What Made Maddy Run. Kate & Kathryn host the Free Cookies podcast together. We sat down in Kate & Kathryn’s beautifully decorated Charleston home to get intimate about so many things (I LOVE how open these two are). We get into the nitty gritty of success—both Kate and Kathryn found it, and then reevaluated what it meant in their lives, coming to conclusions I found fascinating and really really inspiring. We also share some real talk about sex (including defining sex in a new way), and they share their love story, and how they met. We talk about money, and what Kate learned about money from her dad (I was shook, truly). Finally, Kate shares the 5 wellness practices that changed Kathryn’s life the most. It’s a really fun, loose conversation that veers from digital minimalism to orgasms and back again, and I love it—and I hope you guys do too. I’m giving away a copy of Kate’s book and Kathryn’s book over my Instagram—enter to win on @lizmoody. PS: Wanna come hang out with me in Austin this weekend at The Good Fest or in NYC for my book launch? RSVP here—I’d love to meet you in real life! Enjoy! This episode is brought to you by CW Hemp.  I’m extremely picky about the supplements that I choose to use and CW Hemp’s full-spectrum hemp extract is one of just a handful that I take daily.  By interacting with our cannabinoid receptors (which are all over our body—it’s crazy, and definitely worth a Google!), I find it super helpful in relieving stress and helping me sleep better and longer at night.  I typically go for the middle strength mint chocolate, but the unflavored is also great for recipes, like this Lavender Hot Chocolate (which would also be great iced in the summer time!).  If you’d lke to try CW Hemp for yourself, you can get 10% off your order using the code “healthiertogether.”  Visit cwhemp.com/healthiertogether for more details, and if you have any questions (I LOVE talking about this stuff), don’t hesitate to reach out to me on Instagram! This podcast is also brought to you by Siete Foods, one of my favorite brands in the country today.  They make better-for-you Mexican American food, including drool-worthy grain free chips, grain free tortillas, cashew queso, and hot sauces. I literally cook with their products daily—the cassava grain free tortillas are my absolute favorites; they have a great chew and don’t break apart when you roll or fold them.  I also LOVE the Habanero Hot Sauce, which isn’t too spicy but packs in a robust flavor that elevates whatever dish you use it on. You can find Siete products in stores around the country, or you can order them online at sietefoods.com using the code LIZ for an extra 10% off.  Come tell me what you think on Instagram (@lizmoody)—I’m so excited for you to fall in love with the brand like I have!

4654
Courtney Swan (@realfoodology) has what appears to be a dream life: on Instagram, she’s constantly popping up in different awe-inspiring locations around the world as she tours with pop star Tove Lo. In this episode, she opens up about the secrets to her success and self-actualization, from what she wishes everyone knew about therapy to how she overcame her debilitating anxiety (I got her to share her exact supplement routine!). She also shares a few genius tricks she employed at the beginning of her career to become the successful integrative nutritionist/influencer/rock-and-roll manager/label-defying bad ass that she is today. Courtney is an incredibly cool women—one of those women that empowers other women and actually roots for their success. We recorded this episode sitting on her couch in LA, and it quickly got very girl-talky.  We got into the crazy story of how her copper IUD made her incredibly sick, and veer from there into the health benefits of masturbation and the upsides of condoms. I love how frank and open Courtney is, and I hope you guys all feel like you were chilling with us in the California sun. For more from Courtney, check out realfoodology.com. Enjoy!

5768
Jeannette Ogden (@shutthekaleup) is beloved by hundreds of thousands of people on Instagram, where she shares her life as a mom, wife, and generally bad ass woman of wellness. In this episode, we talk about how Jeannette became the inspirational person that she is now, starting from what she was like as a kid and in high school. We get into how her mother’s alcoholism shaped the way she looked at the world, why she dropped out of college, and how her views on money have influenced her decisions. We also get into the love stuff—her and her husband, AJ, are the definition of #couplegoals, but in this episode, we get into some of the tougher stuff that goes on in relationships, and how they work through those moments successfully.  We talk about her eating disorder, AJ’s impact on her relationship with food, and how she views food and wellness now. Finally, we get into what being an influencer is actually like—including the things you don’t see, behind the scenes.  Jeannette is truly a what-you-see is what-you-get person; she’s one of the loveliest, most radiant, most authentic humans I’ve had the pleasure of sitting down with, and I think, listening to this episode, you’ll feel that warmth.

Mari Andrew — Instagram Fame, Creativity, Dealing With Grief, and Being Paralyzed For A Month (!!)
5009
Mari Andrew (@bymariandrew) is one of the most famous writers on Instagram, with water colored mini-essays and illustrations that touch over one million followers daily. She’s the author of the NYTimes best-selling book, Am I There Yet?, and is currently at work on her second book. In this episode, we talk about Mari’s creative process, including the role of both journaling and traveling in her life. We talk about the formative grief following the death of her father, and how she came to be the person she is today, both in the public eye and in her own mind and body.  We also talk at length about her experience with Guillain-Barre syndrome, which struck her suddenly while she was in Spain, and left her paralyzed and in extreme pain in a foreign country for over a month. The illness changed her perspective on the world and her life, and her insights about that time are moving and illuminating. Mari is one of the wisest souls that I’ve met; her thoughts on both the grand and minute moments of life are almost startlingly empathetic, and her ability to to capture the true essence of things will spark “aha!” moments in people young and old.  I say in this episode that her work and life are a gift to us all, and I mean it—I can’t wait for you to hear the woman behind the wisdom. For every episode of the Healthier Together podcast, there will be a corresponding giveaway. Come enter to win on Instagram @lizmoody. Enjoy!

Inspiralized’s Ali Maffucci — Her Mom’s Kidnapping (!!), Bell’s Palsy, And Where She Gets Her Happiness & Confidence
4784
Ali Maffucci (@inspiralized) is the woman behind the Inspiralized juggernaut, which includes three best-selling cookbooks (Inspiralized, Inspiralize Everything, and Inspiralized & Beyond), an amazing, recipe-filled blog, and the world’s best spiralizer, the Inspiralizer (no really—I’ve tried so many and this is the one I personally use). Ali is an incredibly successful businesswoman, mom, and partner—and she makes it all look effortless and even fun.  I spend a lot of this podcast trying to figure out how she’s so calm, confident, and collected—which leads us to one of the craziest stories I’ve ever heard in real life or on the podcast.  A few years back, Ali’s mother was kidnapped from her home in New Jersey. She tells the whole story on this episode, but the way that it changed her outlook on life is fascinating, and hopefully, hearing it will change the way you look at the world too. We also talk about the Bell’s Palsy that paralyzed half of her face, self-confidence, weight-loss (Ali lost 30 pounds early in her wellness journey), building a business, her relationship with her husband Lu, becoming a mom, and so much more.  If you love Ali (who doesn’t?), want inspiration for starting your own company, are a new mom, or are simply interested in living your healthiest, happiest life, this episode is a must-listen. For every episode of the Healthier Together podcast, there will be a corresponding giveaway—this week, it’s Ali’s favorite yoga pants and a copy of her newest cookbook. Check out @lizmoody to enter!

Grace Smith — How To Use Hypnosis For Weight Loss, Anxiety, Insomnia, and More
5207
Grace Smith (@gracesmithtv) is a celebrity hypnotherapist and the author of the just-released sure-to-be bestseller, Close Your Eyes, Get Free. If you’re skeptical about hypnosis, trust me— was too.  Then I worked with Grace on my fear of flying, and read into some of the science behind the very misunderstood practice, and now, well, I’m a believer.  In this episode, we get into the nitty gritty of how hypnosis actually works, how it compares to meditation, some of Grace’s biggest client success stories, how she used hypnosis to quit smoking, and more. Grace also shares her very personal birth story, and how she thought that as a hypnosis guru her birth would be low key, relaxed and magical—but it was anything. She talks about what happened and how the trauma of this changed her approach to hypnosis forever.  Stay tuned for the end, where Grace does a hypnosis session for stress relief.
