Podcasts are essentially the soundtrack of my morning routine. I queue one up as I make my morning coffee, and then stick my phone in my robe pocket so I can listen to the episode as I whip up my daily smoothie bowl, brush my teeth, put on make up, and do something with my hair.
They’re easily my most favorite and most used method of continued education. I subscribe to about a zillion through the Podcast app on my iPhone, but today we’re focusing on my top picks for all things health & wellness. Let’s get into it.
I’m fascinated by biohacking, and through this podcast, Dave Asprey (founder of Bulletproof and the guy who put butter coffee on the map) gives us all access to the best in the biz. If you want to elevate your health through sleep, gut health, and emotional wellbeing, you can start exploring here.
This one’s for my nutrition nerds. Dr. Rhonda Patrick has her Ph.D. in biomedical science and it shows. Her podcast serves as a trusted resource on all the hot topics in nutrition & fitness like keto & low carb diets, intermittent fasting, sugar, saturated fat, and more.Glowing Up
If you’re interested in the Ayurvedic approach to modern health, you’ll love Sahara Rose’s podcast. She’s the author of the Idiot’s Guide to Ayurveda and interviews experts in all things “alternative,” like medicinal mushroom, doshas, and healing adrenal fatigue with supplements & functional foods. I’m also super into the episodes that deal with the business blogging & health coaching ’cause I’m all about that #sidehustle life.
Chris Kresser’s not a dietitian or a doctor, taking an appropriately skeptical approach to traditional medicine. On his podcast, he demystifies popular nutrition myths and hype, while maintaining a realistic approach to health through his interviews with experts like Dr. Mark Hyman, Sarah Ballantyne, and Sara Gottfried.
Abel James road to becoming an influencer in health started with his own physical transformation. By adopting a paleo-based diet that’s high in fat, Abel lost weight, reversed his hypertension, and healed his thyroid. On his podcast, Abel talks to all the experts in modern health. (Are you sensing a pattern yet??)
mindbodygreen is definitely one of my favorite resources overall for approachable articles on all things nutrition & health. On the podcast, mbg founder Jason Wachob interviews health experts and influencers, and also explores food trends and how to make it as a health/food entrepreneur. So basically everything I’m interested in.
