Good Morning everyone. I am so excited for you to listen to this podcast. I got to interview the amazing Kat Lee. When I was starting my podcast I made a list of women I wanted to interview for the podcast. Kat Lee was on my list because I love her podcast, The Inspired to Action Podcast, and her heart for women and one of her areas of focus, mornings.
I have always inspired to be a morning person. To be completely honest I'm not the earliest riser and I don't know if that will ever change. But I do love to get my day started right. Over the last couple of years I have really been feeling the need to come up with a morning routine and one that makes me proactive to my life versus reactive to my life. Kat says she wants to wake up "for my life and not to my life".
When my body was sick and I was going through a lot of healing I couldn't get out of bed early. I tried and would feel bad about failing in my attempts. As I got healthier I was able to get up consistently earlier and love it. I get up somewhere between 6:00-6:30am and get up and do a little workout and get in the Bible and plan out my day while the ideas are still flowing. It is amazing, that is the best way I can describe it. Not every day starts this way but it is how I start the majority of my days.
My morning times have been so instrumental for me I wanted Kat, who is much more of an expert than I am, share with you some of her tips and encouragement that is meant to inspire you to Maximize your Mornings and start your day out right.
This episode is a mini solo episode I am putting out because I get asked a lot of questions specifically about digestion and a healthy vs and unhealthy digestive system. One of my areas of focus and specialties as a chiropractor and natural health practitioner is the digestive system. It has a lot to do with my own health story and my almost 10 years of being sick and not living to my fullest potential.
In this episode you will learn about some of my favorite gut topics. How starting with healing the digestive system is the place to start in your body. What the microbiome is and why it's important. My own health story and how you can get help to heal your digestive system (once and for all).
Today's episode of the podcast is all about Grocery Shopping. This is a fun topic for me because I really love the grocery store. I know that not everyone shares the same sentiment. The grocery store may be a place of frustration, temptation or give you feelings of dread. But it doesn't have to be that way. It can be fun, enjoyable and you can stick to your budget all while eating the healthy diet that makes you feel your best.
Trust me on this one, we have worked hard as a family to get our grocery budget in a certain category of spending and are usually within about $25 of our estimated budget. This doesn't include any bulk purchases we make for my website recipes. Many of the recipes I make and photograph are from our nightly dinners or breakfasts and do come out of our food budget.
Meal Planning… it almost makes you break out in hives thinking about it, right? Where do you start and how can you make meal planning successful? Does meal planning even matter? Or maybe you meal plan but you have trouble sticking with the plan?
These may sound familiar to you or you may have other challenges with meal planning. I want to share with you that I believe you can meal plan. And it is going to actually simplify your life and make meals and snacks a whole lot easier. There is a little learning curve to the art of meal planning, but you will get it.
