Rachel Mansfield (@rachlmansfield) is an Instagram sensation, with more than 300,000 followers tuning into to see her delicious kitchen concoctions, and more recently, follow along her fertility journey and life as a new mom. None of it has been easy—in this episode, Rachel shares the challenges of birth and new motherhood (including a never-before-heard breaking point moment). We also talk about her body image struggles before and after pregnancy—the latter of which will definitely surprise you. We get into life as an entrepreneur, and have a frank and honest discussion about money in personal businesses and in relationships. Finally, Rachel shares some of her behind-the-scenes life, including what she actually eats in a day, how and when she takes her food photos, and her plans for the future.

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.
