Roasted Vegetable and Quinoa Frittata

Happy Thursday, friend!

The most exciting update I have for you this week is my recent podcast interview with Steph Gaudreau on Harder To Kill Radio.

Apparently this episode has been super popular. Both Steph and I have been getting tons of feedback from our audiences expressing how relevant and helpful our conversation was. I love when my work has a bigger impact and is able to change lives, and I so appreciate the opportunity and platform that Steph provided through her awesome podcast.

In this interview, we talked about common low carb, intermittent fasting, and weight loss pitfalls that many women unknowingly fall into while trying to improve their health. It’s SO common for women to make seemingly “healthy” changes and suddenly start feeling worse.

If that’s you, make sure you tune into this episode… it might just completely rewire your thinking about nutrition and healthy eating.

If you did listen, leave a comment below to tell me what you thought about our discussion!

I want to know what hit home for you, and what you want to learn more about.

Now, here’s the #FedForReal recipe of the week! 🙂
