Carrie Forrest is a blogger based in California who's mission is to create + share inspiration for healthy, happy, balanced living. I first found Carrie way back when I decided to go Vegan, at the time she too was vegan and was creating tons of plant based recipes for her readers. 

Since Carrie was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease + later, thyroid cancer, she had to make some shifts when it came to her diet. 

In the episode Carrie and I hash out her reasons for transitioning out of veganism, and learning to listen to her body's needs. 

Some of the episode highlights:

  • Her transition into and out of veganism
  • The signs that her diet wasn't working for her
  • learning to navigate an autoimmune disease
  • overcoming food obsession + binge eating disorder
  • Understanding that 'health' doesn't have a size
  • moving past black + white thinking
  • and combating the food police

You guys already know what I'm about, but I wanted to share a story that I haven't really shared outside of my close personal circle. In honor of National Eating Disorder Awareness Week 2017 and their theme, Let's talk about it, I felt it was time to share MY body story; my struggles with food + body image.

Something I care so deeply about is helping other women who struggle with feeling happy in their bodies + feeling like the boss around food. And while my advice + encouragement have the potential to help struggling women, I'm hoping that my own journey through all this messy stuff will take that advice + encouragement one step further; I'm hoping that my story will provide motivation + TRUST as you work through all of your own messy food + body stuff.

In this episode I walk you through:

  • My relationship with food + my body as a child and into my teenage years
  • The types of pressure I felt, as many other young women do to be perfect and look perfect
  • How the diet culture crept into my own mind and paved the way for my disordered eating habits
  • My journey through vegetarianism and veganism
  • How dieting and being "healthy becomes a part of our identity + source of bonding
  • When trying to be "healthy" turns into an obsession
  • My rock bottom
  • My 4 truths; the things that keep me from returning to the dieting + disordered eating
  • My upcoming course Body Truce; another tool to help you work through your own body history

Mara Glatzel is an Intuitive guide and energy healer- which if you know anything about my work you know intuition is at the core of every bit of what I'm about. Mara's all about cultivating safe, cozy spaces for women to be able to get back in tune with who they are and what they want. She invites women to get curious about their needs and helps them create the space they need to meet those needs.

Her warm spirit, vibrant confidence and affirming energy are addictive- if you don't trust me go wander around her website for a bit.

Mara and I had the pleasure of chatting about:

  • Her "breakthrough moment" of deciding to live more in accordance with her intuitive needs
  • How to make choices that honor your wants, dreams and intuition
  • Defining your own version of success and living that truth
  • Understanding you can always change course
  • How to meet your own expectations first
  • Taking up space as a woman and dwelling in your body- unapologetically
  • The golden staircase model of change vs. the linear model
  • How to draw boundaries to make more space in your life
  • The "busy" mindset, and rewriting the productivity story
  • Making REST a to-do

Katie is an author, podcaster, mentor and journaling enthusiast. Her recently published book, Let It Out: A Journey Through Journaling, is one of my favorite tools for tuning into my intuition. Katie's podcast Let It Out, has been touted by The Huffington Post as one of 10 women hosted podcasts you should be listening to right now. 

Her slew of creative work has been a HUGE player in my own journey through self-awareness and I think you'll find her to be equally as inspiring and relatable when it comes to your own journey.

 

Katie and I got to chat about: 

  • the difference between keeping a journal and a diary
  • how to break through the "weird" feelings around journaling 
  • finding clarity through the chaos with writing
  • journalism as another form of meditation
  • it's never really about your weight
  • feeling the richness of your emotions without judgement
  • diversifying your coping mechanisms
  • dealing with perfectionism and learning the difference between shame + guilt
  • following your curiosity to narrow in on your passions
