Episode #83 with Lee Vosburgh from Style Bee

Without question, sustainability is an important and pressing dialogue we all need to be discussing. It's part of the reason you have been seeing more posts about sustainability on THM and in my personal life I've found myself gravitating towards resources that are discussing it. One of the most relatable and empowering of these resources is The Good Trade, a website founded by AmyAnn Cadwell, a leading voice in the sustainability movement, an entrepreneur and social impact angel investor. She wears many hats, but educating the world on how to make more sustainable choices is the primary of them.

The Healthy Maven and That's So Maven has always been a place where we discuss health and wellness and how to take better care of yourself, but you cannot take care of yourself while ignoring the health of the planet. They are one and the same and need equal attention and respect. So today we are chatting about this parallel between sustainability and wellness and how to make everyday choices for sustainability and curb our fast fashion addiction.
 
On today's episode we also discuss:
  • AmyAnn's background and getting a degree in social entrepreneurship
  • Why she launched The Good Trade in 2014 and what inspired her decision
  • "The True Cost" and how fast fashion became so popular
  • How to shop more sustainably and her favorite sustainable clothing brands
  • How to prioritize decision making when it comes to sustainability
  • Everyday changes we can all implement to live more sustainably
  • Making sustainability conversations accessible and less scary
  • ...and so much more!

Episode #119 with Sarah Polansky of Prismatic Plants

What is Sugaring Hair Removal? blog post

Medicinal mushrooms?! I know what you're thinking here...but hang with me! This episode is a juicy one. Over the last several years medicinal mushrooms (mushrooms that have benefits for our bodies...not of the magic variety!) have had a huge resurgence. But these incredible fungi are not new and in fact, are likely older than us. So what's the deal with them and are they really that great? Simple answer: Yes. But for the longer answer tune into today's episode with Jeff Chilton, president of Nammex, author of The Mushroom Cultivator and mushroom grower and researcher for over 40 years is on the show today sharing all of his mushroom wisdom.

This was honestly one of the most interesting conversations I've had this year on the show. Not only are we going deep into how mushrooms are grown, the benefits of different varietals (reishi, lion's mane, cordyceps etc...) but we're also discussing the importance of sourcing and what's really in some of the more popular mushroom products out there. On today's episode we're also discussing:

  • Jeff's passion for mushrooms and what started his 40+ year career In the business
  • How mushrooms are grown and the difference between mushrooms and mycelium
  • The nutritional benefits of mushrooms and how to consume them 
  • Does it matter where mushrooms are grown? What about organic?
  • The different types of medicinal mushrooms and their benefits
  • How to determine quality of your mushroom products
  • Starting an organic mushroom farm in China
  • ...and so much more!

Chatting with Tiffany Ima was something I had been looking forward to for a long time. Finally getting the chance to sit down and discuss her journey and experiences ended up being even better than I had imagined. Not surprisingly, we have a lot in common. Tiffany's journey has not been direct (is anybody's?!) and has evolved in a messy, beautiful and very public way. Nevertheless, the most important piece is that she showed up. period.

One of my favorite discussions we have on the show is about exercise addiction and how to use exercise to support your wellness and not as a tool to manipulate and change your body. As someone who struggled with exercise addiction, this part really hit home with me. But there is so much more!

On today's episode we also discuss:

  • Tiffany's journey and how she started off of a fashion blogger
  • How being diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder changed the trajectory of her message
  • From fitness trainer to body-positive activist
  • Exercise addiction and how to find a healthy relationship with exercise
  • The benefits of journaling and what "consistency" really means
  • Why so many creative women struggle with body image
  • Her best tips for confidence and what simple wellness means to her
  • ...and so much more!
