Gaby Dalkin (@whatsgabycooking) is the founder of one of the most successful food blogs on the planet, What’s Gaby Cooking and the author of the beautiful, bright color and produce-packed cookbook, What’s Gaby Cooking: Everyday California Food. She’s also one of the most self-confident, positive people I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting.
I spend a lot of the episode trying to uncover how she became so comfortable in her skin (she tells an amazing story about choosing to keep her lisp that I’m in awe of), and we uncover some pretty interesting secrets. We also talk about the pros and cons of owning your own business, how she gained 20 pounds, and what she did to lose it, the secret to actually wanting to workout (Gaby works out for 90 minutes a day!), how to do a friendship cull and why it’s so important, the role of therapy in her relationship, and so much more. If you love food, are looking to become more confident, or just want to live with a bit more joy, this episode is a must-listen.
For every episode of the Healthier Together podcast, there will be a corresponding giveaway and a challenge based on some of the guest’s shared wisdom—one week we might meditate, and another we might try a new skincare routine or tweak our diets, all in the name of actually getting healthier together (versus just listening to a podcast). Come join in (and enter to win!) on Instagram @lizmoody, or using the hashtag #htpodcast.
This episode is brought to you by CW Hemp. I’m extremely picky about the supplements that I choose to use and CW Hemp’s full-spectrum hemp extract is one of just a handful that I take daily. By interacting with our cannabinoid receptors (which are all over our body—it’s crazy, and definitely worth a Google!), I find it super helpful in relieving stress and helping me sleep better and longer at night. I typically go for the middle strength mint chocolate, but the unflavored is also great for recipes, like this Lavender Hot Chocolate (which would also be great iced in the summer time!). If you’d like to try CW Hemp for yourself, you can get 10% off your order using the code “healthiertogether.” Visit cwhemp.com/healthiertogether for more details, and if you have any questions (I LOVE talking about this stuff), don’t hesitate to reach out to me on Instagram!
