455: Raw Foods Right & Wrong

455: Raw Foods Right & Wrong

For the past couple weeks, I’ve been challenging myself to eat more raw vegetables. I wanted to see if there was an impact on my digestion and my energy levels. There has been.

In today’s episode I’m going to talk about the pros & cons of raw vegetables, which ones you should eat raw and which ones are best prepared cooked (from a nutritional standpoint).

I’m going to share the changes I’ve made recently, specifically how I’m incorporating raw vegetables and what benefits I’ve noticed.

I hope you enjoy the episode!

Does bulletproof coffee help you burn fat? Should you be drinking it? Does it matter how you make it?

Should you use coconut oil or MCT oil? Does it matter?

What if your butter isn’t grassfed?

What kind of coffee should you use? Does it matter?

Is it breakfast? Can you have food with it?

These are the questions we’re tackling in today’s episode! Don’t miss it!

443: What Everyone Needs To Know About Beans

443: What Everyone Needs To Know About Beans

Earlier in the week I got an email asking, “Why aren’t beans paleo?”

It’s a great question & one we’re diving into in today’s episode.

We’ll talk about macronutrients – are beans really a good source of protein? Do they have a lot of carbs?

We’ll talk about micronutrients – can your body actually absorb & utilize the iron & zinc you see listed on the nutrition label?

We’ll also talk about other components in beans and how they interact with our bodies at the cellular level.

If you’re a bean eater, this is a must-hear episode!

441: Why You Are Stuck

441: Why You Are Stuck

At times, we all feel stuck. Or unhappy. Or both.

In today’s episode I’m talking about the danger of participating in our own problems instead of participating in the solutions.

When we complain, blame, rehash the past, gossip, explain & justify, we are participating in the problem, not the solution.

When we participate in the problem, our energy, attention, time & effort are going to proving that we are right and that our struggle is real instead of going towards getting it right, regardless of the details.

This is, without a doubt, one of my favorite episodes of the podcast so far. You’ve got to hear this one!

439: 4 New Ways To Win When Eating Out

For most people, eating out is a struggle when they’re trying to lose weight.

Maybe you feel like your options are limited or if you make a “healthy” choice, you’re making a sacrifice and won’t enjoy it.

Sure, we all know that we could get a salad or a burger without the bun and if that’s the extent of the options we think we have, of course we feel limited!

There are so many other creative ways to enjoy eating out, love your food and feel great after you eat it!

Today’s episode is a short one but hopefully it will give you some great new ideas for the next time you eat out!

438: Simplify

438: Simplify

We are so used to overthinking, overconsuming, overanalyzing and coming up with long term strategic plans that we’ve forgotten how to simplify.

I had a listener email me recently saying that she wants to stop dieting. She wants to get healthy. She doesn’t want to over-restrict or count anything, she just wants to eat more real food and less processed foods.

Then she said, “I have no idea where to start”.

That is evidence of how far we’ve strayed from simplicity.

Where she starts is, quite simply: how can I execute that today? What can I do today to eat more whole foods? What can I do today to eat fewer processed foods?

But simplicity is not just about food.

We’ve lost simplicity in our belongings. In our thoughts. In our actions.

And today, we begin to get it back. Don’t miss this episode!

437: Needs Of The Body Or Needs Of The Mind?

One of you lovely listeners emailed me the other day to request that I do more of my “Inside EB’s inbox” episodes where I share my responses to some recent emails!

That’s what we’re doing today! We’re covering a ton of topics from breakfast meal ideas & recipes to what to do when you don’t trust yourself and differentiating between needs of the mind (stress relief) and needs of the body (fuel).

So much good stuff in today’s episode!
