On this week’s fun episode, which takes on a slightly different, more casual format than normal, Beth Lipton joins as guest cohost. Beth is a recipe developer, cook, writer, and health coach, among other things. Together, we answer and discuss questions posted on social media from listeners. Beth shares some tips on how to add variety to meals that may that need a little pick-me-up. We then address questions like how to stay healthy while travelling, what moderation means, and what balance and health look like for different people. Beth brings a fresh, holistic perspective to the idea of being healthy, and she even encourages you to eat that brownie you’re longing for—occasionally, of course!
