Episode 23: Joyfully Nourishing Our Bodies

How we nourish our bodies has a lot more to do with confidence and self-love than you might think… but when we put good things in with joy, it makes a huge difference in how we feel, think and show up.

This week, we have a special guest, Brigitte Gemme, from the Vegan Family Kitchen to talk to us about the benefits of eating a more plant-based diet. She's not here to push veganism on you, but to make your time in the kitchen more joyful and flowing so you actually enjoy creating good food for you and your family.
