It's the official end of Season 3 AH! There really is no method to the madness when it comes to the various seasons of the show other than to let my gut dictate when it's time to close one chapter and prep for another. It's just feeling like the right time to end season 3 with a few weeks off to make some tweaks and improvements before we kick off season 4. Luckily there are 70 shows out there to keep you entertained while I do a little restructuring and take some time off to reset.

I thought it would be fun to reflect back on season 3 and pick out some of the top lessons I've learned from the show. Truthfully, I don't go back to listen to old episodes (it's weird hearing your own voice!), but from the 40 episodes this season, a bunch of important lessons learned still stand-out. Today's episode will be all about these lessons and why they've stuck with me. Be sure to subscribe to the podcast so that you know when I'm back from my short hiatus. In the meantime, enjoy!

Check out Lee's first episode on the podcast here: https://www.thehealthymaven.com/2016/12/thats-so-maven-episode-2-lee-hersh-from-fit-foodie-finds.html

Guess who's baaaaack! Now that we're almost 2 years into the podcast, it's been fun to bring some return visitors back on the show to catch-up about life and what's changed since we last spoke. Today's guest is no exception and likely requires no introduction: Lee Hersh from Fit Foodie Finds. I've known Lee for 5 years now after meeting through the blogging space and we've chronicled our friendship online and in our last podcast episode together. Today's episode is a bit different. We kept things conversational and open and I loved the result! A true reflection of our friendship but also some much necessary realness.

Lee reaches millions of visitors every month and has inspired so many with her recipes and body positive content. Today we're chatting about what it's really like behind the scenes of FFF and how things have changed recently.

Here are some other things we chatted about:

  • Lee's recent trip and what she learned from going off the grid
  • Expanding her team and how Team Fit Foodie has changed
  • The term "influencer" and how she describes her business
  • Body image and why it's a conversation we both don't find ourselves having
  • Mental health and sharing your mental health struggles on the internet
  • Her relationship with Mark and how he's helped to balance her out
  • What she's looking forward to in the future and big projects she's working on
  • The advice she wishes she'd gotten when she started out on this journey

Ladies! Buckle up because today we're chatting all about PERIODS. Yup, every woman's favorite monthly gift. But in all seriousness, menstruation is a huge indicator of a woman's overall health and when things are off, well the whole body is off. So I figured, let's not tip toe around the subject and get down and deep into women's menstrual health. Who better to bring on to talk about it than the author of Period Repair Manual and women's health naturopath Lara Briden.

Over the course of the last 68 episodes we've had a lot of really important conversations, but for women I think this one might be the most important. We've had conversations around Hypothalamic Amenorrhea and PCOS and from those episodes I've heard from you about how helpful these conversations have been so I thought we would talk about some of the challenges with menstruation but also how it benefits us. And well, we get down and dirty into birth control...this is definitely a great conversation!

Here are some other things we chatted about:

  • Lara's journey and how she became a naturopath
  • What is a naturopath and how is their approach different from conventional medicine?
  • What is a period and how can you benefit from it?
  • What are the types of reasons your period may not be normal
  • PCOS vs. HA and is it possible to have both?
  • The positive benefits of ovulation and menstruation and why you should be experiencing a cycle
  • Endometriosis and signs that you may have it
  • Why the birth control pill may actually be hindering menstruation
  • Alternative options to the pill and how they compare
  • Menstrual products and Lara's recommendations for a healthy vaginal biome

It's been a long time coming getting this beautiful human on the show today. Some of you may know Bettina Bogar, but many of you may not even know that you know her. Bettina is an insanely talented photographer and behind pretty image every image you've seen on THM (with the exception of the one's C takes for me!). Just look around this entire website - I have B to thank for all these images! So today I'm getting her out from behind the camera and putting her in the hot seat to answer all of my burning questions.

Bettina and I have known each other for several years now and besides being THM's official photographer, she's also one of my dear friends. I am eternally grateful to have her wisdom, work ethic and inspiration in my life. So it was due time I get to pick her brain and share all that wisdom with you. Since B and I know each other super well this episode is an especially fun one since it's a lot more relaxed and well, you'll also get to know me better too.

Here are some other things we chatted about:

  • Bettina's childhood and growing up in Budapest, Hungary
  • When she started to learn photography and how she knew she wanted to pursue it as a career
  • What prompted her move to Canada
  • Starting a creative business in a foreign country and building it from scratch
  • How she built her client base and her best tips for networking
  • What happened when her Instagram got taken down and what she learned from it
  • Why she doesn't work for exposure and neither should you
  • How she's working on self-care and finding balance between work and life
  • The one health habit she can't live without
