On today’s episode, I sat down to chat with Lauren Bosworth, the former star of Laguna Beach & The Hills and the current bad-ass woman behind Love Wellness. We recorded this right after self-isolation for COVID-19 had begun, so it had to be virtual not in real life like most of my episodes, so please excuse any audio quality issues (although I worked with my editor to make it as good as possible!). This is a scary time, but I wanted to have this episode mostly NOT be about COVID-19, although we do of course touch on it briefly. If you want more resources and support around that, please come hang out on Instagram—I’m offering a ton of guidance, community, and fun dance parties there. But I hope this episode is a bit of a respite. Lauren talks about:
- How being on reality TV as a teenager impacted her personality
- Her secret to making homemade food healthy & delicious
- Her depression and anxiety journey and how she finally got the diagnosis that allowed her to heal
- How she deals with life-inspired anxiety, like the COVID-19 virus
- The cooking show cancellation that ended up being an unexpected positive
- Her breakup and why she’s embracing being single
- The practices she does daily for her mental & physical health
- How she started her mega-successful business, and her advice for any other entrepreneurs
You can find Lauren on Instagram at @lobosworth, and we’d both love to hear your reactions to this episode, so please screenshot and write any thoughts or questions that come up as you’re listening and tag us both (I’m @lizmoody). All of the products form her amazing, woman-empowering company, Love Wellness, can be found at lovewellness.com.
This episode is sponsored by Garden of Life, one of my all-time favorite brands. I focused on immune-boosting staples here, including the Oil of Oregano I take whenever I am sick, the elderberry I take preventatively, and the Garden of Life Ultimate Care I take to support my gut health. You can find Garden of Life at Whole Foods, but the best way to support the podcast is to use the links here, which I’ve also put on my Instagram highlights. By using my links, it just tells Garden of Life that you found them through the pod, and it doesn’t cost you anything extra, so I’d massively appreciate it.
This episode is also sponsored by Califia Farms! I’m a huge fan of all of Califia’s non-dairy products, but I especially love their non-dairy creamer (the one in the carton). I’m a huge fan of making caffeine-free lattes, with super weird flavors like Birthday Cake, Carrot Cake, and Churros, and I love using the Califia almondmilk creamer as the base for that, since it makes it super creamy and delicious. It’s also of course great in coffee or tea!
You can find Califia Farms in pretty much any grocery store, or you can get 20% off online orders at califiafarms.com using the code “healthiertogether20.” If you need help deciding what to buy, hit me up on Instagram—I have lots of thoughts! I can’t wait to hear what you think!
