Feeding Moms & Kids: A Crash Course in Nutrition & Blood Sugar with Celebrity Health Coach, Kelly Leveque
EPISODE: 81 | DATE: July 21, 2022
“If you’re a mom trying to get your kids to eat healthy, think about what one meal can you start with and get good at for 2 weeks or even a month. Just get good at one meal and then see how synergistically it creates harmony in the other parts of your life.”
I’m joined today by holistic nutritionist, wellness expert, celebrity health coach, best selling author of 2 books, and mother of 2 boys, Kelly Leveque.
Kelly’s approach to nutrition is down to earth, easy to follow, and empowering. Kelly doesn’t do diets. Instead, her approach to nutrition is one based on science, common sense, and freedom.
Today we discuss the importance of blood sugar, how to manage cravings, how to manage energy (and stop having energy crashes), and how to build a meal for both yourself and your kids that will optimize health (one that you’ll actually want to eat)!
