Helping you, your family, and the people around you discover the joy of wholesome and delicious food is not just my job—it's my mission.I have two grown boys—Josh and Simon—and for years, I was up to my elbows tackling the daily grind of packing lunches, making endless visits to the grocery store, planning meals, and managing fussy eating. But I'm reporting here that the journey was fun and fulfilling, and my boys grew up to be adventurous eaters. Five family cookbooks later plus free recipes, online resources, and hundreds of podcast episodes, my boys have flown the coop and I've shifted my culinary and nutrition focus to a topic that's near and dear to my heart and something we all need: longevity!Living an anti-aging lifestyle is all about moving our bodies more and choosing foods that fight conditions like heart disease and cancer, bolster brain health, and sharpen vision. To that end, I always try to practice what I preach. I walk (almost) every day, do yoga, and ride the stationary bike. I have a real food philosophy, which is all about adding food groups to the diet, not taking them away. No deprivation. I crave simplicity, colorful fruits and vegetables, and easy-to-find everyday ingredients that make mealtime a breeze.A bit about my background: After four years as an undergrad at the University of Rhode Island and a dietetic internship at the Oregon Health Sciences University, in 2004 I partnered with a friend to create Meal Makeover Moms, which received an incredible response from families and fellow health professionals and even won the 2015 Media Excellence Award from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics! We retired that site in 2017, and that's when Liz's Healthy Table was launched.Liz's Healthy Table hosts a blog with exciting plant-forward recipes (yes, some include a small amount of animal protein!), including Cauliflower Mac & Cheese, Corny Salmon Cakes, Kale & Pine Nut Pesto, and Beef & Bean Tacos. And I have a new podcast called, EAT DRINK, LIVE LONGER, which features exciting longevity-themed food and nutrition episodes on the benefits of eating more pulses, pre-diabetes, and the anti-inflammatory diet.

    Lisa is joined by Marcus Bridgewater, aka Garden Marcus who talks about his book, How to Grow: Nurture Your Garden, Nurture YourselfMarcus Bridgewater, widely known as Garden Marcus, is an author, plant enthusiast, and CEO & Founder of Choice Forward. He began gardening when he bought his first house nearly seven years ago. After killing nine of his original 16 plants, he found himself determined to learn how to care for all living things. He now has around 500 plants at his Texas home. He developed his internet presence by connecting his observations in his garden to greater life lessons, and has been featured in the New York Times, Vogue, and the Los Angeles Times. When he is not in his garden, he is leading presentations, workshops, and seminars with Choice Forward. His first book, “How to Grow: Nurture Your Garden, Nurture Yourself,” (HarperOne, 2022) debuts May 24th.Book Description: In this transformative guide, TikTok's most popular gardener, Marcus Bridgewater—aka Garden Marcus—offers lessons for growth rooted in lessons from the plant world to help cultivate the soul.Marcus Bridgewater has been compared to Bob Ross and Mister Rogers for his soothing TikTok videos that relate botany to humanity. A gardener “who shares tips about caring for one's plants and oneself” (New York Times) and “is not only a trove of information if you're looking to flex your green thumb, but a balm for the pandemic-induced chaos happening in the world” (Vogue), his soothing observations on plants and life have made him a social media star. In caring for over 600 plants, Marcus has gained invaluable wisdom. Life inside us yearns to grow; like plants, humans maximize their potential when presented with the right conditions. Through care and attention, he reminds us, we can successfully cultivate growth. Centered on a trinity of wellbeing—Mental Health, Physical Fitness, and Spiritual Awareness, How to Grow weaves together insights from the garden with stories from Marcus's life to help you foster personal development. With lessons rooted in his experiences gardening—from how a replanted flourishing sweet potato vine is a reminder that all living things benefit from a change of scene, to how to embrace patience to foster growth—this inspiring guide helps you do “the dirty work” (pun intended) to discover kindness, patience, and positivity within. “We cannot make anything grow,” he advises. “But we can foster an environment where it may grow.”How to Grow isn't a gardening book. It is a self-help book that draws inspiration from the garden. Original, timely, and filled with nurturing wisdom, it takes perennial knowledge from plants to teach us about ourselves and opens our eyes to what we are capable of achieving.

For more info, https://www.pacificpremiergroup.comBook description: A Journey Toward Understanding, Active Treatment, and Societal Prevention of TraumaImagine, if you will, a disease―one that has only subtle outward symptoms but can hijack your entire body without notice, one that transfers easily between parent and child, one that can last a lifetime if untreated. According to Dr. Paul Conti, this is exactly how society should conceptualize trauma: as an out-of-control epidemic with a potentially fatal prognosis.In Trauma: The Invisible Epidemic, Dr. Conti examines the most recent research, clinical best practices, and dozens of real-life stories to present a deeper and more urgent view of trauma. Not only does Dr. Conti explain how trauma affects the body and mind, he also demonstrates that trauma is transmissible among close family and friends, as well as across generations and within vast demographic groups.With all this in mind, Trauma: The Invisible Epidemic proposes a course of treatment for the seemingly untreatable. Here, Dr. Conti traces a step-by-step series of concrete changes that we can make both as individuals and as a society to alleviate trauma's effects and prevent further traumatization in the future.You will discover:• The different post-trauma syndromes, how they are classified, and their common symptoms• An examination of how for-profit health care systems can inhibit diagnosis and treatment of trauma• How social crises and political turmoil encourage the spread of group trauma• Methods for confronting and managing your fears as they arise in the moment• How trauma disrupts mental processes such as memory, emotional regulation, and logical decision-making• The argument for a renewed humanist social commitment to mental health and wellnessIt's only when we understand how a disease spreads and is sustained that we are able to create its ultimate cure. With Trauma: The Invisible Epidemic, Dr. Conti reveals that what we once considered a lifelong, unbeatable mental illness is both treatable and preventable.

By embracing the practice of radical intimacy, I can confidently promise my readers a personal revolution of self-acceptance, appreciation, vitality, and confidence. And without fail, mind-blowing, soul-stirring, earth-shattering sex follows.”—Zoë KorsPart practical guide, part client stories, part personal narrative, Zoë Kors draws on her experience as a sex and intimacy coach, thought leader, and relationship writer in sharing her powerful and practical methodology for nurturing and sustaining our intimate relationships over time. She addresses the essential truth that is almost universally missed in discussions of sex and intimacy: We can meet each other only to the extent that we can meet ourselves. Kors guides the reader on a five‑part journey through nine areas of opportunity for deepening intimacy with themselves, their partner, and their world, inviting them to embrace emotional, physical, and energetic self‑mastery, which is required to skillfully relate with others. At the conclusion of each part, there are a collection of experiential exercises which support the reader in embodying the concepts they've just read.

    Lisa is joined by Bethany Netsova who shares why the BMI is BS, the dangers of diet culture, fat phobia in the society at large and in the medical establishment, bullying both as a kid and as a fat woman trying to workout at numerous gyms, and her incredible TikTok page. In Bethany's own words: I never intended to become a fat positive creator on TikTok, but through my own journey to radical self love and acceptance I realized I could love and supports others in similar bodies and journeys. Growing up fat, I never felt like I was allowed to love myself. It wasn't until I had a kid of my own that I realized if I wanted them to feel comfortable in their own skin and love themselves regardless of what the world tells them, they needed to see that in action and it had to start with me. My TikTok videos features stories from my past of growing up fat, experiences at the gym, and current issues that I still experience as a fat person. My hope is that others can see themselves in my stories and know they aren't alone, while educating those who haven't experienced fat phobia and show them what it's like to be a fat person living in today's society. TikTok name: blnetzer
