Today I get real and raw with you.    I don't think I have every truly shared my car accident story on the podcast nor all the things that happened after. 

I recorded this from my favorite spot over looking Mark Twain Lake so the audio is a bit rough.    But hang in there because this is real!

I had the privilege of attending a live event recently with some really heavy hitters.   People that have changed and will continue to change the world and business.    I took so much good information from it and just had to share.    But this isn't just about business, I relate it to your food as well.

Are you in a house where not everyone is on the real food train yet?   I know I am and it gets frustrating trying to make food for yourself and your family.   

Today's podcast and raw, meaning I was walking the dog and had a random thought about this.    So here you go!    I know towards the end the audio is a bit hard to hear but I'll get it together one day.

Ashton truly is a rock star mom!   She took her midwest upbringing and is rocking the West Coast while raising a daughter and tackling her own body issues.   Oh yeah and traveling too!

Her story is unique to her but very similar to so many of us.   She finds the balance for her family between brussel sprouts and chocolate chips.

It's the fourth quarter, how are you crushing it?  How you set yourself up over these next 90 days is how you will live out 2020.   You can get prepared and put in the hard work now or you can sit back and just coast.   Either way you will reap what you sow in the first quarter of 2020.    Why not start now?

Today I am talking to a mom who raised two children during the convenience era and the mindset she was in.  This tells the tale of what raising kids in the 90's and 00's was like and what the focus was back then.

Do you know what the convenience era is?   I believe it has destroyed us and it will take many years to try and recover from this.    This is why I studied nutrition and am so passionate about food.

I know what you are thinking, I must be sick and twisted.  Let me clarify I am not one of those people that is into a fascination with feces.  I did however have an unhealthy relationship with needing to go to the bathroom consistently in order to feel good.    Some would say I had an eating disorder because of my unrealistic habits.   This went on for most of my adult life and it has only been within the last six months that I have gotten it under control.    Seriously, I had to poop every day and I talk more about how this affected my mindset in this episode.
