Alex and I are always looking for nutrient-rich, real food snacks we can enjoy on the go. So we’re thrilled to have Wild Zora as an official sponsor of the podcast. A complete and balanced snack is more than just meat, Wild Zora Meat and Veggie Bars include a balance of grass-fed or naturally raised meats mixed with one serving of certified-organic fruits and veggies. Every bar is super nutrient dense and 100% real food. Go over to WildZora.com to check out all their yummy flavors and stock up on their high-quality snacks.

In this episode Brittany interviews Trisha Hughes. Trisha is the creator behind Eat Your Beets, a website dedicated to wholesome & easy family friendly recipes. She’s paired her passion for feeding her family gluten free, nutritious fare while also making sure she keeps a healthy balance with occasional sweet treats.

An avid traveler, she & her husband love taking their 4 children on adventures & believe the best way to truly experience any new place is through their stomachs! She loves the art of storytelling through food and her images have inspired others, creating an opportunity for her to teach food photography through her ebook, Eat Pretty Things, & at her in-person workshops.
