Welcome to the first ever episode of the Healthier Together podcast. On this episode, you’ll meet Liz Moody, the host of this podcast (that’s me!). I’m the author of Glow Pops and the upcoming Healthier Together cookbook (Clarkson Potter, April 2019). A former newspaper columnist, I spent years traveling the world, studying cooking in Italy and Argentina, going to sommelier school in France, and living with a healer in the mountains of Morocco. Now, I’m the Food Director at mindbodygreen, one of the world’s leading wellness websites. On my own site, lizmoody.com, I share wellness tips and healthy recipes, like the strangely viral Super Healthy Snickers Pie.
On this episode, I’m joined by her husband of two years and partner of ten, Zack. Zack’s a rock-climbing entrepreneur with a soft spot for our pet cat, Isabella. To kick off the Healthier Together Podcast, we discuss their own wellness journeys (mine involved smoking cigarettes and a lot of Ben & Jerry’s) and how we got, well, healthier together. We also talk about what it’s like for Zack to deal with my anxiety; the best way to make new habits stick; meditation; the healthiest diet; the secret to real relationship success; how to get your partner to be healthier (even if they really don’t want to) and so much more.
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.
