Interview with Lily Nichols:

In her latest book - Real Food for Pregnancy – Lily Nichols takes prenatal nutrition advice
out of the dark ages and provides an easy-to-follow guide for making the best food and
lifestyle choices during pregnancy.
In Real Food for Pregnancy, you’ll get clear answers on what to eat and why, with research
to back up every recommendation. Lily Nichols has taken a long and hard look at the
science and lays out the evidence—930 citations and counting—on the benefits
of real food, why certain foods are essential (and others are detrimental), and countless
lifestyle tweaks you can make to have a smooth, healthy pregnancy.
The short version of what is covered in the book:
• In Real Food for Pregnancy Lily Nichol’s debunks a LOT of prenatal nutrition myths. Most
prenatal nutrition advice is either outdated or not evidenced-based. Misconceptions of
conventional prenatal nutrition: macronutrients, salt, “foods to avoid,” fish, etc.  
• Foods to emphasize, lab tests, supplements
• Testing for gestational diabetes—pros/cons of all the methods
• Nutritional management of preeclampsia, gestational diabetes, nausea, heartburn & more
• Mindfulness, stress management, exercise, avoidance of toxins
• Traditional postpartum care, impact of nutrients on breast milk quality, etc.
There has never been a more comprehensive and well-referenced resource on prenatal
nutrition. With Real Food for Pregnancy as your guide, you can be confident that your food
and lifestyle choices support a smooth, healthy pregnancy.

In today's episode Jessica addresses two listener questions regarding eating sugar free and/or low carb treats and what sweeteners are okay to eat and the other regarding what oils/fats to use and how to cook with them. 

Here is a quick list of what she discusses: 

Good sweeteners: 

  • Erythritol (she likes "Swerve" and a "Steviva Brands" which is a stevia/erythritol blend)
  • Stevia (Steviva Brands and Sweet Leaf are trusted brands)
  • Monk Fruit and Monk Fruit blends

Stay away from Sucralose (Splenda), Aspartame, Sacchrin (and others talked about in the podcast) as these are all chemically produced and raise blood glucose and/or wreck our gut microbiome when consumed regulary.  

Good Oils/Fats:

  • Ghee
  • Coconut Oil 
  • Grass Fed Butter
  • Grass Fed Beef Tallow
  • Pastured Pork Lard (Bacon Reserves)
  • Avocado Oil
  • Olive Oil 
  • Duck Fat
  • Others mentioned in podcast 

Bad Oils/Fats:

  • Any "vegetable" oils (which are actually all seed or legume oils): 
  • canola oil 
  • corn oil
  • sunflower oil 
  • peanut oil 
  • safflower oil 
  • And many more mentioned in the podcast

On today's episode I am interviewing Erica and Jenni of "Oh, Hello" keto bakery! 
Meet Erica:

Oh, hello! It’s nice to meet you. I’m Erica. I am a wife, a mother to 3 busy boys, and I love to cook. 

In January 2018 I entered a weight loss challenge. I didn’t have much to lose, really, but was excited for the challenge. I knew that there was room for improvement in my weight and overall health. After doing my research, I just had to try Keto! Instantly I started feeling better. I no longer feel bloated, my complexion is clear, my energy level is up, I sleep better at night, my joint pain nearly gone, and I dropped a total of 20 lbs- that’s double my goal! I am feeling great and am so happy that I started this journey. 

As I mentioned above, I love to cook. I especially love to bake! Past diets have not only left me feeling deprived of food, but have left me feeling deprived of my favorite hobby too. During this Keto journey, it has been important for me to have diet appropriate treats on hand (this girl needs her sweets!). 

My love of food has driven me to create recipes that have satisfied my sweet tooth while keeping me on track with my diet plan. I never expected Keto to become a lifestyle for me. But, with the right support, knowledge, and food, it is exactly where I want to be. I truly hope that our business can make your journey a little brighter too! I am really excited to share our low carb, absolutely delicious goodies with you!

Meet Jenni:

Oh, hello! My name is Jenni, I am excited to tell you about my Keto journey.

The first time I talked to Erica about Keto I was a week into a weight loss challenge that had weekly weigh ins. I remember telling Erica that I wasn’t really sure about Keto because of all the fat. She just shrugged her shoulders and confidently said “I really think it is a good thing”. A week later I had spent between 1-2 hours each day at the gym. I weighed in at the exact same weight. As hard as I try, I always failed to watch what I was eating. I sure love my sugar, and I always had an excuse of why it was okay to eat it. 

The following week I started eating a high fat, low carb diet not fully ready to commit. I lost 6.5 pounds that first week and I was hooked. The energy I had was off the charts and I immediately felt the difference in my body not feeling bloated. As I educated myself on macros and what my body needed, Keto was definitely the answer. 

 I have lost a total of 35 pounds since January 1, 2018. My body fat percentage has gone from 35% to 20% and still dropping. I still have some work to do, and am going to see where Keto can take me long term.

Being a mom with 3 active kids between the ages of 8-12, Keto has fit right into my life. My husband prefers to eat gluten free and my kids are coming around to trying new things. These baked goodies have really helped the transition.
