69: Mindful Meals
Meet Shana Moore. Shana struggled with her weight most of her life, but especially in college. As a young adult, she decided to have surgery to help her slim down. Originally, it worked, but there was one problem; her mind. Shana talks about how action without knowledge doesn't last. In her case, it didn't and she gained all of the weight back. Today she is 100 pounds thinner than she was before she started her journey, and it has nothing to do with surgery, and everything to do with a shift in her mind, combined with a plant-based diet!

63: The Accidental Paleo
Certified Holistic Health Coach, Lauren Lobley talks about how removing dairy from her life instantly led to a loss of 10 pounds, and how removing meat helped her with her longterm digestive issues. Soon after, she delved into the idea of "food as medicine" as she experimented with her own diet. When she first started eating more plant-based, she wasn't sure how to replace the animal proteins on her plate with something healthier.
Today, Lauren is the author of the cookbook, "The Accidental Paleo: Easy Vegetarian Recipes for a Paleo Lifestyle", which is a book that literally replaces the meat with healthier, plant-based alternatives! Her book even includes a section which mentions items to deck out your pantry with to make your time spent in the kitchen far more efficient!
