In this episode I talk about my journey from eating Paleo (and eventually Paleo Keto) to Plant Based.

I open up and explain how this came to be. 

How I started listening to my body again and giving it what it was asking for.

Why I feel like this is important and it impacts everything I focus on.

Key Points and Takeaways

In this episode I reference taking a genetic test through 23 and Me.

The gene that impacts how our bodies process saturated fat is called APOA2 gene and the variant associated with it. My variant is GG and that is the one that has the most trouble with saturated fat.

For those of us with chronic illness and/or autoimmune conditions, the holistic wellness folks on the internet like to make us feel there’s only one way to address this. Spoilers: There isn’t. The best way is what feels good to you.

This is also your permission slip to make changes. If you feel like something isn’t working for you, you have the power to make a change. Whether that’s related to diet, lifestyle, exercise, you are in control. You can make changes so that something feels more aligned with you.


If you are feeling called to switch to a Plant Based diet, I am here to help you through that.
