This is a special event, live from Seattle book tour stop where there was an amazing crowd—we had the best night, and I hope you feel like you were there in spirit. I was joined on stage by friend Rachael DeVaux (@rachaelsgoodeats), a registered dietitian, the co-owner of Toast Society Cafe, and the founder of her own workout program, Good Sweat.
This episode is all about healthy eating—literally answering every single question you’ve ever had about healthy eating, from the broad to the really, really nuanced. We get into whether to eat organic or not, what we actually eat in a day, how to save money on healthy food, thoughts on being paleo, vegan, keto, and more, intermittent fasting, if calories matter, and the best diets for weight loss. We talk about the best healthy desserts, the best healthy pastas, the one food everyone should eliminate from their diet to be healthier and the one they should add in, the two foods everyone should eat for hormone balance, and tons more. I’ve listened to a ton of healthy eating podcasts, and I often come away feeling like I’ve learned a lot, but I have no idea what to do TODAY in order to be healthier or to solve a specific issue, and I really wanted this episode to answer those questions. You’ll come away EXCITED about healthy eating, but also really knowing what to buy at the grocery store, what to make for breakfast, how to solve your specific gut issues, and more. Rachael is a wealth of knowledge and because this is a live event you’ll hear a bit more from me as well—but you have any lingering questions about healthy eating, please ask on Instagram (@lizmoody and @rachaelsgoodeats)—maybe we’ll do a follow up episode!

They’ve since expanded the line, which now includes the original cake mixes, pizza dough mix, brownie mix, bread mix, pancake & waffle mix, ready made crackers and cookies, and more. Everything has only a few simple, largely organic ingredients, and there are no weird gums or emulsifiers.

This episode is also brought to you by one of my all time favorite brands, Garden of Life. I’ve been taking Garden of Life probiotics for more than four years. Their Mood Plus probiotic is formulated specifically to help with stress and anxiety, and it’s made a huge difference in my mental health. Zack also takes their Once Daily Men’s probiotic, and their RAW Vaginal Care line is an amazing secret weapon against any UTIs or yeast infections. I also love their prebiotic, which has five clean, organic ingredients and provides food for the probiotics in your gut. I never travel without the Oil of Oregano and the Turmeric Gummies are truly addictive and so good for helping with chronic or acute pain.
You can check out all of my Garden of Life picks at lizmoody.com/shop. If you need recommendations for specific products, please DM me and I’ll help you figure it out! I can’t wait to hear how they change the health of your whole body and mind!
