Hello peeps, I’m so happy to be in Wonderland with you today and sharing my Monday Meanderings with you as usual. This week’s links all have a bit of a theme: FOOD. Is food on your mind a lot? If you’re into wellness or high-vibe foods at all it probably is merely for the reason that if you choose to eat that way you have to think consciously about your decisions around food more than someone who does not. While I’m not saying at all that it is a bad thing necessarily but, it is when those thoughts about food become unmanageable when it becomes another issue. When it becomes for example, driving around frantically trying to find a certain type of nut butter on a vacation because you couldn’t possibly eat the food being served and you NEED to eat. That’s when you’re making food special and yourself special. You are making food something that can save you from the present moment instead of simply being in the moment.

Woah. That was some deep shit for Monday Meanderings, but I think talking about this and getting honest about our relationship with food is important. We can talk about food and recipes and health all day, but are we discussing those things as a coping mechanism to not have to feel our emotions or handle our stressful situations? Again, coping is okay and sometimes when I’m stressed I do choose to read tons of articles on wellness or zone out on  Instagram to cope but other times I actually choose to handle my feelings. The woman to taught me about this and what was really going on when I was googling gluten-free, daily-free, soy free, recipes for hours was my WWRadio guest (listen to that episode 055 here if you want to know more about that) last week. Hope you liked that episode & if you did she’s got a free video series on this concept and more you should totally check out.

So yeah today’s meanderings are basically all food related in honor of what I wrote above. But before we get into those links that caught my eye. I have a few announcements. First of all, the PODCAST is back but it is not going to be weekly for a while, hope you guys are cool with that. For now the show will come out on a more bi-weekly basis for a couple reasons:

-So I can keep bringing you rad content, 
-So you have time to let this really high-level info sink in. If you’re like me re-listen a few times.
-Because this week I want us to listen to this rad summit my friend and previous WWRadio guest is hosting
-& last but not least because I’m co-hosting another podcast again with a past WWRadio guest called Over the Moon Radio & you can listen to that here. It’s a super groovy show and you can hear me on many of the episodes. 

With that, you’ll want to make sure you sign up for my WW-land community emails and subscribe to the podcast on iTunes so you never miss when the latest episode airs now. & without further ado below are my foodie meanderings & above are my Insta-glimpses into my past week. Eat up. 

oh and wait, about my weekend/week yeah I met Mastin Kipp on his book tour where he stopped in Detroit to see me (and a lot of cool other peeps) and he signed my book as you can see above and agreed to come on WWRadio, yay! Also, I taught at rad ego eradicator meditation in my yoga class Sunday morning and went to this sweet new moon infinity circle on Friday night, so yeah that’s what you see above.

-A song to listen to while you meander or cook. To die by your side is such a heavenly way to die.

-These muffins look so amazing right now! Who wants to make them with me? Purely Twins are so creative in the kitchen.

-Shredded Beet & Carrot Salad now this looks so grounding and good I can’t even handle it.

Episode 055 | WWRadio with guest Isabel Foxen Duke

aboutSmall2Who better to kick off season 3 of WWRadio than today’s radically authentic guest. She brings out my own raw insights on our relationship with food and body image. Isabel Foxen Duke is only our second repeat guest and an emotional freedom from food extraordinaire and coach, Isabel stopped by Wonderland on episode 009  to shed light on real techniques on how to release toxic relationships to food and tell her personal food journey that led her to the work she does with women today. Most of us have become lint rollers picking up some pretty nasty thought patterns around food, whether we realize it or not. I challenge you to own it first and then listen to today’s episode with an open mind about changing that.

We discuss this in our first Podcast together but the first step to freedom from emotional attachment to food and becoming what Ellyn Satter calls a ‘normal eater’ is to get honest about where you are. In this conversation we’ll help you figure out exactly where that is. Listen to the whole thing, it’s really eye opening and packed with info so you might want to listen multiple times to really let is soak in. We go really high level in this podcast so jump back to listen to our first episode together to get more info about Isabel and her personal story in episode 009. & I’ve also interviewed her multiple times & all those links are below as well.

My favorite lines & nuggets of wisdom: YEP THEY’RE TWEETABLES…Just click right on ‘em!

“The reason people diet is because they don’t feel good enough in their bodies or fear fat.”

“People who diet think about food more.”

“Dessert is emotional eating & it is fine.” 

 “Find Freedom from Food, stop fighting it for good” 


-Binge eating can come from emotional restriction (as well as physical food restriction), ie. ‘the diet starts tomorrow’ If you are shaming or guilting yourself, you will have the impulse to “get it in quick (binge eat) because the diet starts again tomorrow.”

-Weight is a temping thing to use to control how other people think of us BUT…a. It’s not that effective because yes people judge you on your size but they also judge you on a million other things too. b. You have to ask yourself what are you willing to put yourself through to get people to like and respect you. Are you willing to make yourself miserable by dieting to make people like you or not?

-If you have a history of dieting…then when you are stressed you will turn to food and eat, but the biological response in stressful situations is to not eat. So non-dieters will not eat when they are stressed because they will loose their appetite. This response but be reset for chronic dieters. Learn how here.

Happy Monday! As you can see from my Insta-glimpses above I started this week in NYC. Hanging out with my amazing friends getting spoiled with delicious high-vibe meals cooked for me with love, exploring the city, and meeting with my book publisher Hay House at their NYC office and going to One Luck Duck, one of my favorite places in the city for a smoothie with the beautiful Hay House editor Sally pictured above. Here are last week’s magic Monday Meanderings to catch up on the first half of my magical NYC trip. But it’s a new week & I’m home now & super inspired. I came back and hit the ground running with yoga outside & walks to take in the crisp fall air that is now upon us. Basically, I’m cooking up some super cool stuff for you guys, but in the meantime, I have some BIG NEWS:

Serious Interview with A Revolutionary + EXCITEMENT GALORE

Listen peeps, today’s interview with Isabel is not your typical WWRadio interview. We don’t talk morning routines or favorite color. We rant and rave and show the importance of an issue that has plagued both of us personally and from talking with you guys, many of you as well. The topic body-hate and food obsession. This woman is how I healed and now through this interview you’ll learn how she can help you do the same.

Just listen be open and know that these concepts may be new and they may also be radical. They legit might blow your mind and that’s a good thing.

If any of these things we spoke about resonate with you click here to sign up for her FREE video training series to go deep into her concepts.

Basically just ask yourself these questions….

Is food or weight a constant worry?

Can’t stick to a diet no matter how hard you try? 

Is your weight constantly holding you back?

Are you an emotional or binge-eater?

If these resonate check this out.

Today’s meanderings are a little different from the norm, they are all about ME. I’m writing you day from NYC, specifically from this table at Jivamuktea Cafe where I just chugged an almond milk chia tea, which blew my mind.  Have you gotten my Enlightened Eating Guide yet? You totally should!

I hope you had a great weekend, I sure did!. You probably saw on Insta but I’ve been in the city training with my mentor Gabby Bernstein all weekend. I’m hanging int the city for a few more days for meetings, podcast interviews, yoga, and exploring. Above are  Insta-glimpses from my weekend unlike usual where below I have my fav links from the week today I just have cool stuff from my trip, I hope you don’t mind the link vacation. In the meantime, keep in touch with me daily on Facebook & tweet me on the Twitter where I constantly share links that inspire me.

-the one and only Jordan Bach, just as wise in person as he was in the pod Episode 046-Jordan Bach

My favorite lines & nuggets of wisdom from him:…Just click right on ‘em to tweet.

“The Universe wants to support you, you just need to let go.” 

“The deeper the impact the bigger the audience will be.” 

“Wellness is a state of relaxation into who we really are & that feels like a Wonderland.” 



-A season one staple, the beautiful Be Well With Arielle is one of the most beautiful, glowing, and delightful people I know and it was so fun to hang with her. She was actually Gabby’s first ever coaching client…showing how amazing working with Gabby can be, Arielle now has her own cooking show! + a jewelry business & health coaching practice. Woah.

-Listen to us chat here: Arielle J. Fierman 


10691706_359681040859539_1928482660_n-One of my first guests ever, the beautiful queen of Health Coaches Robyn Youkilis is one of my main mentors. She talks her talk and walks her walk and that was super clear in person this weekend.  The beautiful woman has the best energy and I just simply loved being around her!


-Listen to us chat here: Robyn Youkilis  





10311266_1471188536475289_1477340397_n-and obviously got to hang with my main squeeze Gabby B. here’s our epic talk if you’ve missed that.Here’s that Episode with the one and only-Gabrielle 

My favorite lines & nuggets of wisdom from it:

“We are all called to step up & be loud, the form is irrelevant.”

“Your  purpose is telling your story of how you change your thoughts to love.”

“My purpose is to heal & share how I heal.”

“Messages come in symbols that resonate with you.” 


10665430_935992696414826_1527202611_n-Last but not least, I must give a huge shout out to my best friend and spiritual running buddy Steph. She is a beautiful person and our late night chats about literally everything, our high-vibe dinners, breakfasts, and lunches, our long walks (where she navigated & I held the umbrella) and our long lingering hugs were my favorite part of the weekend. My wish for all of you WW-land is that you can manifest a friend like this to hold space for you in the way Steph does for me & I for her. Follow her on Insta & her blog…she’s a powerful force. Below is the playlist that for whatever reason we listened to in our room on repeat and became the soundtrack of this trip for me.


ps. check it out one of my classmates had a WW-land tat! How cool?
