#112 Break Your Food Habits

Eating habits: we’ve all got ‘em. It’s totally normal. Some of them are probably good habits!

#108 5 Ways to Thank Your Body

#107 Burn It All Down: When to Take a Break

Self-improvement can start to feel exhausting. There are only so many things you can make Google Calendar reminders about for yourself before you feel like you don’t have any time to just...be.

Plus, we go out for brunch in “What Your Trainer Eats”.

#105 Cooking with Kids with Ashley Moulton

Cooking with kids makes them more likely to try new foods, helps them establish healthy habits, and reinforces the skills they learn in school. Plus, it’s a great chance to bond as a family! But cooking with kids can also be messy, and time consuming, and...what if you aren’t that great of a cook yourself? Nomster Chef founder Ashley Moulton gives us great tips and tricks for getting started with kids in the kitchen even if you aren’t a Master Chef.

#102 Couples Therapy with Jen Elmquist

A lot of us get nervous about the idea of “couples counseling”: doesn’t seeing someone mean something is really...wrong with us? Isn't it just for old married people who are getting divorced? Absolutely not! Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Jen Elmquist joins us to break through the stigma of taking care of our hearts and minds the way we take care of our bodies. We talk about what couples therapy is, when might be a good time to try it, and how her book, Relationship Reset, can get us heading in the right direction without even sitting down on The Couch.

#101 Sports Drinks and Energy Bars

Sports drinks and energy bars are everywhere, but do they actually do what they claim to do?
