Episode 77 | Why Gluten-Free May Not Always Be the Best Choice

Have you ever wondered if you should be following a gluten-free diet? Or if you are already following one, is it as healthy as it could be? On today’s podcast we are digging into the popular gluten-free label and asking if it’s really as healthy as most think.

To help you understand just how far wheat and gluten have come from the days when Jesus was breaking bread, we’re sharing a bit about their history and how much they’ve both changed over time. Because of this, many are needing to following a gluten-free diet, but oftentimes this new diet can be filled with processed ingredients potentially causing more issues. Today we’re digging into why a “gluten-free” label may not necessarily mean “healthy” and some of our favorite ways to optimize a gluten-free diet.

Whether you are gluten-free currently or have been considering trying it out, today’s episode will help you understand more about the gluten-free food world and eat the foods that will help you thrive on a gluten-free diet.

Episode 69 | Living Health-fully with Davida the Healthy Maven

Welcome back to episode 69 of the podcast! On today’s episode we are hanging with the beautiful Davida of the Healthy Maven, talking about all things...well, health! We absolutely adore Davida’s take on a healthy life and are so excited to share all her nuggets of wisdom and quote worthy responses to our probing questions.

Davida is the blogger, podcaster and You Tuber behind the Healthy Maven, a multi-channel health and wellness platform helping women to live healthFULLY rather than living for their health. Today we chat with Davida about how she got started with blogging and how her struggle with body image and obsession with all things healthy has lead her to a pretty incredible place within her own health journey, one that has allowed her to create a food and healthy living philosophy that we can all get behind.

Davida shares her take on stress and overcoming the “hustle culture”, how to create more balance and time for self-care and what her furry companion is teaching her about life. Like we said, we are smitten over her take on the healthy life and know that you’ll be encouraged by what Davida shares with us today.

To hear more from Davida, check out her blog, That’s So Maven podcast, and Instagram!
