Chinae Alexander (@chinaealexander) has long been one of my favorite inspirational accounts to follow on Instagram (she also has an amazing podcast, called Press Send). She’s incredibly honest, with unapologetic pictures of things like crotch sweat and arm fat, and insightful, with an ability to find the story and wisdom in everything from an interaction with an Uber driver to her unique Texas upbringing. This conversation represents some of my favorite elements of the Healthier Together podcast—a casual, frank conversation about everything from religion to anxiety to weight loss to pursuing your passion and how that should fit in with earning money. I also grilled Chinae about where she gets her incredible self-confidence, and came away with insights that have changed my life since.

This episode is also brought to you by one of my favorite food brands, Love Beets. Love Beets, which is found in the produce section of most grocery stores, makes cooked beets with no preservatives, that taste really fresh, just like a beet you would actually make yourself. They have plain beets, but also a ton of different fun flavors, including Beet Salsa, Wine & Balsamic, Honey + Ginger, and Sweet Chili.
You can find Love Beets in most retailers nationwide, including Whole Foods, Kroger, and Costco, and you can also buy their beet juices and beet powder online at lovebeets.com—use the code LIZ for 20% off.
