Christiana Hill is probably the most interesting person we’ve ever met – She and her husband live in a school bus converted into a tiny home (check it out on her Instagram!), she quit her job to launch The Art of Bravery, and now she helps women learn about their best and bravest selves!

 

We talk a lot about our collective misconception around bravery. It doesn’t have to be this giant leap, like quitting your job or leaving a relationship or moving to a different country. Bravery can also the little steps you do every day that add up to being a braver person!

 

To celebrate Nina’s health coaching going full time, she has a special offer for the Wine & Shine community!

 

If you mention that you listen to the podcast, you will receive 15% OFF Nina’s 3-month coaching package. To get in touch with Nina, head over to nourishedwithnina.com/resources or send her a DM on Instagram: @nourishedwithnina.

We so much enjoyed chatting with dietitian Laura Schoenfeld about how we can support our adrenals, reduce stress, and find that happy, healthy place our bodies crave! We had a wonderful conversation with Laura—including some really specific advice—and as you’ll hear, she really knows her stuff!

 

This was a really great reminder that so many women work hard on maintaining their health, but end up overstressed, overtrained, and undernourished. Let's keep taking care of our bodies, but in a way that allows us to get back to a space of physical, mental, and emotional nourishment!

 

We Chat About:

  • Laura’s shift into alternative nutrition
  • The danger of using body image to define self-worth + when dieting becomes too restrictive
  • Finding out carbs aren’t the enemy
  • Adrenals and all the neat things they do
  • When stress can be good + when it’s just bad
  • The four triggers of HPA access dysregulation + why they matter
  • Which came first, adrenal or gut flora issues? (a.k.a. The chicken and the egg question)
  • Gaining weight with stress
  • Why we undereat by accident
  • Balancing intuition + structure in your diet
  • Tracking calories with the right mindset + when not to do it
  • Practicing self-love + giving yourself a little grace
  • Finding that ideal weight without chasing an ideal
  • Daily habits that sneak attack our health
  • Avoiding micromanagement
  • Laura’s one-on-one with Liz
  • Knowing what you can control

We had the pleasure of sitting down with the lovely Holly Lowery, an eating disorder recovery coach, an anti-diet advocate, and the host of the Well + Weird podcast. This is a great conversation about finding love for our body, finding health no matter where you fall on the weight spectrum, and embracing exactly who you are + who you’re supposed to be.

 

It’s also a conversation that a lot of women NEED to have, but are afraid after years of programming telling us that we need to look, eat, or act a certain way – but that’s not the case!

 

We Chat About:

  • When a tornado stopped us from recording
  • Healing human body weirdness
  • How dieting teaches us not to listen to our intuition + bodies
  • The story we’ve been sold about weight
  • How perfectionism + wanting to fit in can escalate into disordered eating
  • Recovering from disordered eating
  • Speaking out loud + finding support
  • Signs of disordered eating
  • Reaching out to dieticians with experience in eating disorder recovery – NOT someone offering “weight management”
  • Why aggressive weight loss or weight maintenance isn’t usually healthier (and doesn’t usually make you happier)
  • Aligning your choices with yourself
  • Is “feeling fat” or “feeling thin” real?
  • The problem with “the war on obesity”
  • How body positivity has been co-opted by diet culture
  • Holly’s coaching + podcast

We sit down to chat with one of Nina’s favorite period gurus, Nicole Jardim! We dive into hormones, gut health, bowel movements, periods, and the porn industry, all through the lens of empowering women.

 

It might feel like TMI for some people, but there’s too much GREAT information in here that everyone should know!! There’s an epidemic of people not knowing enough about their bodies and not wanting to talk about it – but the more that we know about our bodies, the more control we have over them!

We Chat About:

  • Nicole’s passion for hormone health
  • Statistically common (but biologically abnormal) health problems
  • Empowering women with knowledge
  • Liz & Nina’s period problems
  • Being in connection with the universe & syncing with the moon
  • The environmental factors affecting our hormonal health
  • How to rebuild your body’s microbiome
  • Figuring out what food works for us
  • How to know whether you should be taking supplements
  • How to track & assess your health
  • Good VS bad bowel movements
  • Libido problems
