In this episode, Kari and Julie answer the top 5 questions they get asked on a regular basis.

1. What is the easiest way to meal plan and prep because just planning is overwhelming?

Julie: Start simple!  Make one simple change for a week or so before trying to change everything in one week. Choose simple recipes and upgrade your ingredients.

Kari: Have key staples on hand and embrace leftovers!

2. What do you feel is the healthiest food lifestyle?

Julie: There is no one size fits all. Eating whole foods is the right way to eat for everyone but you have to be a student of your body and find what works for you. Educate yourself on the pros/cons of each eating plan and make an informed decision.

Kari: Focus on eating whole foods. Think of what is sustainable and what you can incorporate into your life for years.  

3. How are you modeling healthy habits for your children?

Julie: The key here is to lead by example.  Don’t ask them to do something you wouldn’t be willing to do.

Kari:  Let your kids have some control and make choices about what they eat. Explain why some choices are better than others and empower them with information so they truly understand. 

4. How do you stay motivated in your health journey?

Julie:  I really envision how I want to feel, how I want to show up in life,  and how I want my life to look. When you really become clear on those things, for me that is what has made the biggest difference and I know that those healthy habits are what will get me there.  

Kari: You have to stay connected in how you want to feel and really become laser focused. I want to be a good steward of the body/time God has given me and I want to make the most of every day. In this journey to stay motivated, you have to have small wins. It’s very important to have an accountability partner to help keep you motivated and on track.

5. How do you go from craving sugar day and night to cutting it out?

Julie: It is possible for you to quit refined sugar, not just for us or your friends. The cleaner your body becomes by upgrading what you eat, the less you crave sugar. 

Kari: Learning how toxic sugar is for your body really motivated me. Once you participate in cleanses/detox programs, you will begin to notice how sugar negatively affects how you feel.
