Welcome to a very special episode of the Healthier Together podcast—the Healthier Together book launch LIVE panel. As many of you lovely humans know, I just released my cookbook, also called Healthier Together (and it’s already a number one best seller, thanks to all of your amazing support!).
This episode was recorded live at the Healthier Together book launch event, and I think you might like it even more than a traditional episode because you get two amazing guests, and way more of my personal perspective on health, food, and life.
My guests are two of my dear friends in the food world: Serena Wolf and Ali Maffucci. You might remember Ali from Episode 8 of the podcast, where she shares her mom’s crazy kidnapping story and how it changed her outlook on life (if you haven’t listened yet, definitely do so!). Ali’s a phenomenal businesswoman—she’s a best-selling author of three cookbooks, the woman behind the Inspiralized brand, and the Inspiralizer, and an amazing mom to her cute son, Luca, on top of all that. I love Ali’s warmth and wisdom, and she has such an amazing positive perspective on food and life that I’m excited to share with you all.
Serena is the woman behind the best-selling Dude Diet cookbook, and the amazing site, domesticate-me.com. We’ve bonded over our shared anxiety, but also because she’s truly one of the funniest people I know. Honestly, she kind of bugged me on the panel because she kept saying exactly what I was going to say before I said it—that’s how aligned our life perspectives are.
In this episode, we get into healthy eating, chatting about what’s actually the healthiest diet, the food advice that’s total BS, the one food I use to conquer my sweet tooth, and more. We also get into other wellness practices (CBD, how to motivate yourself to workout, adaptogens, and more). Then we get into the “together” element of the book, talking about how to make friends as an adult, how to get your partner to eat healthy when they REALLY don’t want to, how to bond and connect with your partner in the kitchen and out of it, and more.
If you’re into healthy eating, healthy living, optimizing relationships, or just living your best life in a way that isn’t painful, annoying, or restrictive, you’re gonna love this episode!

This episode 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!
This episode is also brought to you by ButcherBox, a brand new sponsor that I’m so excited to have on board. ButcherBox sends grass-fed and finished beef, pastured chicken and pork, and wild-caught Alaskan salmon directly to your door. I’m such a huge advocate for healthy eating being accessible to everyone, no matter where they live or what grocery stores they have access to, and I think ButcherBox, which ships nationwide, is a huge step in the right direction.
If you want to try ButcherBox for yourself, go to ButcherBox.com/lizmoody. With this link, you’ll get $20 off your first order, PLUS 2 packs of bacon and 2 pounds of breakfast sausage. DM me on Insta if you need ideas for what to make!
