Episode 098: Easy Keto Meal Prep with Jenny Castaneda of Cook and Savor

One of the first things that get sacrificed to our ever-busy schedules is eating healthy, nutritious meals. From personal experience, I know that the key to this is always being prepared, which is why meal prepping is a very handy skill to practice.

In this episode, I'm joined by Jenny Castaneda of Cook and Savor, a 100% gluten-free blog where she shares quick and easy recipes, healthy living and meal prep tips.

You'll hear Jenny share:

  • How she manages to make healthy home-cooked meals while working a 9-5 as a woman in tech

  • Three tips for anyone to get started with meal prepping or even if you already do this and want to take it to the next level

  • How to keep food fresh throughout the week and what she stores her meal-prepped food in

  • How she makes healthier versions of traditional dishes from our shared Filipino heritage

  • All about her brand new book, Easy Keto Meal Prep (releases on October 8th)!

Episode 076: Eating for Nutrition vs. Avoiding Unhealthy Foods

One of the outcomes from my experiment in following the Keto Quick Start 30-day Meal Plan (Episode 074) was the realization that I had been eating to avoid unhealthy foods versus eating for nutrition, or rather nutrient-density.

In this episode, I’m joined by Nutrition Consultant and fellow 21-Day Sugar Detox Coach, Katie Leadbetter for a conversation exploring this topic.

You’ll hear us discuss:

  • What does it mean to eat for nutrient-density

  • How is that different than eating to avoid unhealthy foods

  • Mindful and Intuitive Eating

  • The role that programs like the 21-Day Sugar Detox, Keto Quick Start Meal Plan or even Whole 30 can play in mindful and intuitive eating

  • And a whole lot more!

Unlike typical episodes with guests, this is not an interview, but rather, a conversation with two nutrition and wellness practitioners sharing our views and philosophies on this topic!
