Don't Salt My Game | With Laura Thomas, PhD

Join Registered Nutritionist Laura Thomas, PhD for conversations with game changers. Laura talks to people in wellness, foodies, bloggers, entrepreneurs from cool brands, creatives, nutritionists, doctors, body positivity people, mindfulness experts, and anyone else who is shaking up the wellness world, to find out how they stay on top of their game – and to help you do you, but better. It’s not all handstands and courgetti though - she and her guests aren’t afraid to dig deep into the darker side of wellness and WILL call BS on weird, faddy trends, that don’t have any legitimacy or scientific merit. Fresh pods every Friday. #dontsaltmygame

This Black Friday we're celebrating the little guys; the indie makers, creators, designers and small shops in our That's My Jam Christmas Gift Guide Special. Emily Beeson, the blogger and creative soul at Young Gold Teeth shares her favourite independents where you can find that really special gift for that hard-to-buy-for person in your life. Whether they're the nester/homebody type, the foodie, or you just need a secret santa gift that doesn't suck, we got you. Emily also shares where to find Christmas crackers that don't suck, pretty Christmas cards, and experiential gifts that aren't your average trashy Groupon. We also talk about Emily's extensive knowledge of celebrity animals (and why you need them in your Insta feed). PLUS, she smack talks Drake ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ P.S. neither Emily or I are judgey about shopping on the high street (Amazon is my lifeline), we just wanted to big up some of the little guys who don't get enough air time.

This week we're talking to Michelle Elman, the 'grammer behind two of my fave Insta accounts; Scarred not Scared and Body Positive Memes. We talk about her WILD medical history, including 15 surgeries, a brain tumour, and a near death experience. WHOAH.

Today we're talking to Catherine Lippe, a Registered Nutritionist who specialises in paediatric and maternal nutrition, about how to raise intuitive eaters. The things we say, how we act, and what we *think* kids should do can all influence how kids relate to food, and sometimes we do or say things with the best of intentions, that can totally backfire. Catherine shares her tips for things to look out for and we share a model for child feeding that helps take the pressure off parents, and helps the kid build a sense of autonomy and independence around food. The goal here is to help kids preserve their innate hunger and fullness cues and have a healthy relationship to food. We also discuss why restriction of certain foods might actually lead to eating MORE of those foods in the long run, and why it might not be the best idea to use creative coercion tactics to get kids to eat their veg! We just scratched the surface of things to talk about related to raising kids who have a happy, healthy relationship to food, so make sure you check out the show notes for more resources.
