0. Simplifying the Science of Nutrition
Hello, new friends! My name is Kelly LeVeque. I’m a certified clinical nutritionist, celebrity health coach, and bestselling author. I am a surfer’s wife, a new mom, and a female entrepreneur trying to juggle it all. I created Be Well by Kelly in 2012 on a mission to help simplify the science of nutrition. I created the Fab Four to help my clients take ownership of their food choices, feel good in their bodies, and achieve their goals. Instead of eliminating, depriving, and restricting, we shift that energy and focus on adding to our plate, nourishing ourselves, and caring for ourselves instead. The Fab Four Lifestyle embodies a spirit of positivity around food and nutrition.  I want to make choices, not cheats. I want to live in balance, quiet my inner perfectionist, and never feel like my goals are out of reach. I want to love the way I look AND feel. I want to be proactive about my long-term health and wellness. I want to have a positive relationship with food for the rest of my life. On this show, I will interview my favorite people — doctor, researchers, farmers, entrepreneurs, moms, my best girlfriends, and family — with the goal of giving you the good stuff: the positive takeaways, the tools and tips that will help you feel and be well, and a dose of motivation to keep you going.

190. Revolutionizing the School Lunch System with Barbara Mechura
It’s no secret that school lunches have been in decline for decades. Chances are, the food you remember from school would give you nightmares if your child’s cafeteria served it in 2022. Yes, Michelle Obama did some good work in the space – and progress has been made. But as we learn today, there’s a lot of work left to do when we’re talking about truly healthy school lunches. My guest today, Barbara Mechura, school nutrition director and holistic health coach, has dedicated her career to shifting this narrative toward scratch-made meals. We learn that, while it’s certainly more work, these mindfully prepared meals lead to a better outcome for everyone involved (students and staff).  It’s time we stopped taking the easy way out with pre-packaged convenience foods that create serious long-term problems for students’ health. Barbara shares how we can get involved in our school district’s food decisions, and that they probably need our help. You will learn about...

189. Bringing Joy to the Table with Jennifer Anderson of Kids Eat in Color #FabulousFriends
Feeding kids is hard, even when you’re an expert in the field. Jennifer Anderson is a registered dietician and has a Master's of Science in Public Health from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Her journey with childhood feeding started when her 3-year old, as she says, fell off the growth chart. What she discovered included more questions than answers – at first. In 2017, she founded Kids Eat In Color, a popular online resource that helps children and families from all backgrounds have better nutrition and mental health via access to expert, actionable information. Prior to starting Kids Eat In Color, she coordinated youth nutrition programs at a food bank, performed research in inner city food deserts, and consulted for the USDA. Our conversation is another mom-centric goldmine of real world advice and reliability. Jennifer and her brand take all parents as they are; no food is good or bad – and if you did your best, what you did was good. Even if our hurdles, and those of our kids, seem unique at the moment – we’re all in this together. You will learn about...
