Jeannette Ogden (@shutthekaleup) is beloved by hundreds of thousands of people on Instagram, where she shares her life as a mom, wife, and generally bad ass woman of wellness.
In this episode, we talk about how Jeannette became the inspirational person that she is now, starting from what she was like as a kid and in high school. We get into how her mother’s alcoholism shaped the way she looked at the world, why she dropped out of college, and how her views on money have influenced her decisions.
We also get into the love stuff—her and her husband, AJ, are the definition of #couplegoals, but in this episode, we get into some of the tougher stuff that goes on in relationships, and how they work through those moments successfully. We talk about her eating disorder, AJ’s impact on her relationship with food, and how she views food and wellness now.
Finally, we get into what being an influencer is actually like—including the things you don’t see, behind the scenes. Jeannette is truly a what-you-see is what-you-get person; she’s one of the loveliest, most radiant, most authentic humans I’ve had the pleasure of sitting down with, and I think, listening to this episode, you’ll feel that warmth.
This podcast is brought to you by Siete Foods, one of my favorite brands in the country today. They make better-for-you Mexican American food, including drool-worthy grain free chips, grain free tortillas, cashew queso, and hot sauces. I literally cook with their products daily—the cassava grain free tortillas are my absolute favorites; they have a great chew and don’t break apart when you roll or fold them. I also LOVE the Habanero Hot Sauce, which isn’t too spicy but packs in a robust flavor that elevates whatever dish you use it on. You can find Siete products in stores around the country, or you can order them online at sietefoods.com using the code LIZ for an extra 10% off. Come tell me what you think on Instagram (@lizmoody)—I’m so excited for you to fall in love with the brand like I have!
