Kelly LeVeque—Debunking Healthy Eating Myths, Kelly’s Personal Wellness Routine & What It’s Really Like To Work With Celebs

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!

Shut The Kale Up’s Jeannette Ogden — Real Talk On Relationships, Money, Addiction, Eating Disorders, and What Goes On Behind The ‘Gram

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. Enjoy! This podcast 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!

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.

Gaby Dalkin (@whatsgabycooking) is the founder of one of the most successful food blogs on the planet, What’s Gaby Cooking and the author of the beautiful, bright color and produce-packed cookbook, What’s Gaby Cooking: Everyday California Food.  She’s also one of the most self-confident, positive people I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. I spend a lot of the episode trying to uncover how she became so comfortable in her skin (she tells an amazing story about choosing to keep her lisp that I’m in awe of), and we uncover some pretty interesting secrets.  We also talk about the pros and cons of owning your own business, how she gained 20 pounds, and what she did to lose it, the secret to actually wanting to workout (Gaby works out for 90 minutes a day!), how to do a friendship cull and why it’s so important, the role of therapy in her relationship, and so much more.  If you love food, are looking to become more confident, or just want to live with a bit more joy, this episode is a must-listen. For every episode of the Healthier Together podcast, there will be a corresponding giveaway and a challenge based on some of the guest’s shared wisdom—one week we might meditate, and another we might try a new skincare routine or tweak our diets, all in the name of actually getting healthier together (versus just listening to a podcast).  Come join in (and enter to win!) on Instagram @lizmoody, or using the hashtag #htpodcast. 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 like 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!

Alison Roman — Body Love, Sudden Success, And Cooking Secrets

Alison Roman (@alisoneroman) is the author of Dining In: Highly Cookable Recipes, one of the most successful, innovative, and delicious cookbooks of the past year.  The former senior food editor at Bon Appetit, Alison dropped out of college to work in the restaurant world before some lucky biscuits provided her big break into editorial.  Now, she’s working on a second cookbook, and developing recipes for Bon App, and the NYTimes. Alison is one of those innately cool people, who just feels like she knows herself and what she likes. She wasn’t always this way though—in the episode, we talk about the body image issues she’s had to overcome as a food professional, and the steps she’s taken to learn to love herself.  We also discuss the notion of success, and what having such a huge win actually does in terms of changing your life. We talk about how to make food taste delicious, her recent breakup, anxiety, CBD, the story behind her viral cookies, and so much more. Be sure to check out my Instagram (@lizmoody) where I’ll be giving away a few copies of Alison’s gorgeous book. Enjoy! This podcast is brought to you by Four Sigmatic.  I’m extremely picky about the food I consume, and after doing a huge amount of research on mushrooms, I’ve become not only a fan but an evangelist.  I don’t drink caffeine, so I use mushrooms to help me wake up in the morning (cordyceps), focus in the afternoon (lion’s mane), and calm down in the evening (reishi).  I also use the chaga to bolster my immune system on trips (either cross-country or just on the arguably-more-disgusting NYC subway).

Inspiralized’s Ali Maffucci — Her Mom’s Kidnapping (!!), Bell’s Palsy, And Where She Gets Her Happiness & Confidence

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!

Half Baked Harvest’s Tieghan Gerard — Managing Anxiety, The Olympics, and Making Amazing Recipes From A Colorado Barn

Tieghan Gerard (@halfbakedharvest) is one of the biggest food bloggers on the planet, with a website that gets hundreds of thousands of views and features some of the most delicious recipes (and amazing photos) around, and a mega-successful debut cookbook, Half Baked Harvest Cookbook: Recipes from My Barn in the Mountains.   In this episode, get to the know the woman behind the food, as Tieghan candidly shares her lifelong struggle with anxiety (and how she deals with it now), her path to a successful career in food, her family’s trip to the South Korea Winter Olympics to support her brother, Red Gerard (the first gold medalist of the games!), and much, much more. For more from Tieghan, check out halfbakedharvest.com. Enjoy! This podcast is brought to you by Four Sigmatic.  I’m extremely picky about the food I consume, and after doing a huge amount of research on mushrooms, I’ve become not only a fan but an evangelist.  I don’t drink caffeine, so I use mushrooms to help me wake up in the morning (cordyceps), focus in the afternoon (lion’s mane), and calm down in the evening (reishi).  I also use the chaga to bolster my immune system on trips (either cross-country or just on the arguably-more-disgusting NYC subway). This stuff REALLY works, and now I rarely go a day without it.  Get 15% off your order using the code healthiertogether, or visiting foursigmatic.com/healthiertogether (and feel free to hit me up on Instagram @lizmoody with any questions—I could swan over shrooms till the end of time!).

Marie Forleo—Simple Solutions For The Biggest Relationship, Dating, Career, and Mental Health Problems

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!

Danielle Walker—The Foods That Helped Her Heal, Secrets To A Long, Successful Marriage & How She Built Her Mega-Popular Brand

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.

This episode is also brought to you by one of my all time favorite brands, Garden of Life. I’ve been taking Garden of Life probiotics for more than four years. Their Mood Plus probiotic is formulated specifically to help with stress and anxiety, and it’s made a huge difference in my mental health. Zack also takes their Once Daily Men’s probiotic, and their RAW Vaginal Care line is an amazing secret weapon against any UTIs or yeast infections. I also love their prebiotic, which has five clean, organic ingredients and provides food for the probiotics in your gut. I never travel without the Oil of Oregano and the Turmeric Gummies are truly addictive and so good for helping with chronic or acute pain.

Things You’re Not Supposed To Talk About—Money, Sex, & Body Image with Sophie Jaffe & Courtney Swan LIVE FROM LA

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. PS: Healthier Together is officially a number one best-seller! You can get your copy right here or at lizmoody.com/cookbook.  Please keep sending me your creations on Instagram—they make me so happy!

Monique from Ambitious Kitchen AND Jeanine From Love & Lemons: How To ACTUALLY Make Your Dream Life & Career Happen

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!
