Today’s guest is totally killing it on the game changer front. She is Pip Murray from Pip & Nut, the nut butter brand that are completely shaking up and disrupting the spreads category. WTF is the spreads category? It’s that boring shelf in the supermarket with jam, and honey, and peanut butter, not super cool, until Pip&Nut came along and started making dope nut butters.
Pip is like the ultimate badass entrepreneur ladyboss. She lived in a freaking shed to get her company started. Then she hustled hard to get funding and get her products into Selfridges, Sainsbury’s, Ocado, Holland & Barrett. And she’s partnered with huge brands like Nike. If you’ve ever thought about leaving your boring office job and going out on your own, then this is a really inspiring conversation to listen to, and just gives you some insight into the world of wellness startups, or any startup really.
Today’s episode is pretty awesome. I’m talking to Megan Crabbe from Body Posi Panda about all things body positive. We get into diet culture, bikini bodies, body dysmorphia, eating disorders, orthorexia, and intuitive eating. And we talk about how to shut down the negative thought we have about our bodies so we can stop worrying about it, and just do…us.
So it’s a really great conversation, a really important conversation, but if you’ve suffered from disordered eating and you think this could be triggering for you then maybe just go and listen to another episode.
Megan also challenged me to share a bopo pic, so I’m going to put that on my site and on social and I wanna see yours too! So upload a bopo pic telling me something you LOVE about your body to Insta or Twitter and tag me and Megan, and use #DontSaltMyGame, because you don’t have time for that negative body shaming BS.
OK, I know this episode is kinda on the long side. But seriously, you HAVE to stick with it because it’s really good, and Elizabeth is really funny and really cool. We talk about everything from teen movies and witchcraft to sexism and being sober. Plus, we talk about our obsession with Instagram and why she thinks the term ‘role model’ is boring and annoying.
It’s the very first episode of Don’t Salt my Game, and I’m joined by blogging mega babe Izy Hossack from Top With Cinnamon. GO BIG OR GO HOME! Speaking of big, Izy has some pretty huge news to share (you heard it here first), but you gotta listen to the episode to find out what it is. Plus, find out how she’s saving the environment, one meal at a time, her student kitchen essentials, and her blogging-dorm room situation. Full disclosure, this episode contains a lot of nerding out over nutrition. And find out which wellness trends she thinks are just plain dumb.
