NEWS & UPDATES
We talk about some really big news: Alex is leaving the show! We talk about how we came to this decision, what type of thinking went into it, and how sad we are to have this go down! But we also talk about the future of the podcast and how Brittany plans to take it to a whole new level.

Alex explains why she had to make the difficult decision and that sparks a conversation on the Art of Saying “No.” Brittany and Alex both share advice on what helps them and how saying no is a way to say yes to your best self.

RESOURCE:
This is Your Brain on Nature

 

ALEX’S NEXT STEPS
Alex is taking the time to focus on the future of the Healthy Hormones Group Program, as well as a whole-food, natural detoxification support Detox program along with Megan of GingerNewtrition.  In the fall, she’s also going to be premiering a gut health and support coaching membership site…so stayed tuned for that!

To learn more about the Winter Detox starting February 18th, check out this page.

 

BRITTANY’S NEXT STEPS
Brittany is launching the amazing RADIATE Mastermind program! It is a support system for women to feel happier, more fulfilled, at peace, and in charge of their life.

She also discusses her brand new cookbook coming out in March (and talks about some extra special sardine recipes in it!).

NEWS & UPDATES
Brittany talks about her adventures in Local Eats Project and her most recent Dairy-Free Eggnog video.  Alex chats about her and Megan’s (of GingerNewtrition) new Detox Skin Care Guide coming out January…keep an eye out on Instagram for free content all about that.

 

GMO SALMON
We discuss the new release of GMO salmon and how it is made (crossed an Atlantic Salmon with Pacific-Chinook Salmon with added DNA from an eel-like ocean pout). We also talk about how many retailers are deciding to not carry it, as well as an interesting new movie about the topic that Brittany found out about: Consumed, The Movie.

 

SUGAR DETOX
We talk about Brittany’s repeat experiences with the 21 Day Sugar Detox and how she inspired Alex to cut back on her processed sugar intake as well. We talk briefly about food restriction and how we respond to it.

 

FINDING ENJOYMENT IN STRESS MANAGEMENT 
Brittany talks about the Inquiring Minds podcast interview with Robert Sapolsky and how it prompted her to think about the importance of actually enjoying your stress management tools.  We talk about a rat study and the growth/destruction of neurons in response to stressful exercise, just as an example. Alex talks about the real, physiological outputs in response to doing something that stresses you out.

 

CRICKET FLOUR
We talk about cricket flour as a sustainable protein source, and a source of a novel combination of micronutrients and vitamins (like calcium, iron, B12). We talk about our reactions to eating bugs and how the rest of the world views the role of insects in a regular diet.  Lastly, we talk about products we plan to try and fun ways to get in those crickets.

 

PRODUCTS:
Bitty Foods (cookies)
Exo Bars (coconut nut, peanut butter and jelly)
Cricket flour on Amazon
Six Foods (cricket chips)
Eat A Bug Cookbook (for the very brave!)

EYE HEALTH QUESTION 
“Hi ladies! I’d love to hear your thoughts on how to maintain good eye health. I’m 28 years old but after my son was born last year my vision drastically took a nosedive. Even the optometrist is quite surprised. Even if I can’t reverse the damage already done, I would love to know what vitamins and minerals go into maintaining as good of eye health as possible. Thanks!” – Caitlin

-We answered by addressing nutritional options to focus on, such as omega 3 fatty acids, vitamins C and E, zinc, and vitamin A. We also discuss good eye hygiene with glasses and contact lenses and then dig deep into getting eye exercises to give our peepers a break from the constant screen time we expose ourselves to.

 

COMPOSTING
We get into the details behind all the different ways you can compost. We discuss everything from working with your local farmers market to keeping earthworms in your kitchen to building your own compost in your backyard! It’s easier than you think and can be helpful in cutting down on the waste you throw away.

Find the best composting system for you. Brittany’s article explains all the options:
 Composting: The Whys and the Hows.

 

SLEEPING PILLS 
We discuss why so many people are dependent on sleeping pills, including sleep disorders, sleep hygiene problems, and lifestyle considerations.  We then talk about natural sleep aid options such as melatonin, valerian root, chamomile, essential oils, magnesium oil, epsom salt/bentonite clay baths.
