That's Pretty Woo Food Quote.png

We are nervous to talk about food, but we're doing it anyway. In today's conversation, we get into our food journeys and where we are today with intuitive eating. Jordan reveals her love for pizza and supplements. Kaileen shares her struggle with mindfulness and eating. Talking it out helps us both see the woo of food more clearly.


  • The intuitive eating movement, eating with rules, appreciating guidance, finding ease in 80/20

  • When food brings nourishment and joy

  • Kaileen's background as a vegetarian

  • Considering our Ayurveda doshas

  • Up-leveling your Bagel Bites by adding basil, aka Basil Bites

  • What is exactly is a foodie?

  • Cooking as meditation and creative expression

  • Pendulum swings: bread is dead / bread is life

  • The woo-woo practice of talking to food before eating it

  • Searching Google for "best side dishes"

  • Meal prep + making nourish bowls

  • The communion and connection in food
