In this episode, I talk to Sarah Ramsden - Certified Nutritional Practitioner, brain tumour thriver, fermentation nerd and my work-wife (co-creator of S&STV and my partner at Whole9 Canada) - on how to step into your fears and doubts to make big (or small) changes in your life and everything you need to know about fermented foods.
In this episode, we talk about: Sarah's story on finding out she had a brain tumour and Multiple Sclerosis in the same week - not to mention how she manages MS naturally. How to overcome doubts so you can achieve your goals and let go of the resistance you have towards putting yourself first. How to "just F do it" - a.k.a. how to successfully make big or small changes in your life, no matter what resources you have to work with. The importance of starting before you are ready. All about fermented foods - What are they? Why are they important for our health? How do you know if you need to be eating fermented foods? How much should you be eating? What if you f-up your fermentation...will you get botulism?!? (*hint: the answer is no) Plus everything about Sarah's online fermentation classes, Fearless Fermentation.

In this episode, I discuss a super important topic with one of my boxing friends - writer, coach, storyteller, lover of language and fighter - Camille DePutter, on the importance of owning your story. In this episode, we talk about: How Camille grew up as a storyteller, but held back her own story for so long and how sharing it helped her become more comfortable in her own skin. The importance of owning your story as it relates to being your authentic self and having self-worth. Where we can find our own stories and why they don't need to be profound in order to share them. Why it's so important not to tuck away pieces of your personality, especially to please those around you. What to do if you fear other people's judgements by owning your story. Why your stories don't necessarily define you. How to receive other people's stories to help them overcome shame. How to start to share your story.
