I think I can successfully say I fully geeked out during this interview. Much like the last episode with Katie Dalebout, I've been obsessing over this week's guest's work for a bit now, and I think this conversation was loaded with juicy stuff.
You know who I'm talking about. Yeah. I'm talking about the woman wellness weirdo, Jessica Murnane.
Some of you may remember a few months ago I shared a blog post listing off my current favorite podcasts, and you may remember a specifically incredible one called the One Part Podcast by Jessica Murnane. If you missed that post and haven't gotten into her pod, now's your chance to learn more about her before you dive in! Already stay plugged into Jessica's work? Then you're definitely going to love this discussion we had regarding everything from body image and endometriosis, to some shit that's been going down in the world and why we should raise our voices.
Jessica's blog, One Part Plant stems from the concept that every single one of us can benefit from making even the smallest shifts toward a plant-based lifestyle. In her case, she's found that eating plant-based has helped reduce her symptoms from stage IV endometriosis, and though she recognizes that everyone is different, I think we both can agree that there are seemingly infinite benefits to incorporating more plants into your diet.
Lucky for us, Jessica is sharing even more of her scrumptious and creative (yet simple) plant-based recipes in her upcoming cookbook, which she speaks a lot about in this episode! Yay!
Personally, I've been drawn to Jessica's story since last May. I was curled up on my couch with tears streaking my face and a smoldering heating pad smushed against my pelvis as I desperately Googled "foods for endometriosis pain and balancing hormones". As I share in this podcast episode, I continued to her site where I found Laura Miller of Raw. Vegan. Not. Gross smiling back at me. One of my favorite food bloggers! Froobs! I was instantly hooked.
I don't want to overwhelm you with a lengthy introduction, because I absolutely want you to jump right into this episode and become mildly to moderately obsessed with Jessica.
