Low-Carb Conversations
Low-Carb Conversations features conversations with host Leah Williamson, NTP and a variety of voices in the Low-Carb, Keto, Paleo and Real Food movements, expressing many different points of view.

Episode 396

Welcome to Low Carb Conversations with Leah Williamson, Holly Jean Barrett and Amber Horn, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.

On this episode Leah, Holly Jean, and Amber catch up and recap the amazing guests we’ve had on over the last month.

Then the discussion shifts to the importance of self care and what it means to them. Self-care is a popular buzz word, but what do people really think when they think of taking time for self-care. Or, perhaps a better question is, how many people make an effort to actually prioritize self-care?

On this episode our hosts explore the expectations and realities of what self-care looks like. They also share their personal tips for self care. Here is a hint: Self-care is not just an act of luxury, taking bubble baths, or pampering yourself.  Tune in to find out how to find rest and restoration in daily activities and practices – no day spa necessary.

Articles Discussed:

  • Why your self-care isn’t working
    • “Self-care is just one fraction of the broader concept of self-love. Self-love includes, but is not limited to, recognizing your self-worth, being kind toward yourself, and fostering your self-growth throughout the course of your life. If your self-care strategies are not sticking, it may be because you are lacking the foundation of self-love.”
  • It’s time to redefine self-care
    • “Self-care is anything your future self will thank your present self for doing”

Episode 393

Welcome to Low Carb Conversations with Leah Williamson,Holly Jean Barrett and Amber Horn, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.

Low-Carb Conversations Ep. 393 with Justin Nault


This week on the Low Carb Conversations Podcast Amber and Holly Jean chat with Justin Nault, the Founder and CEO of Clovis, a health & wellness brand dedicated to building communities of like-minded individuals looking to build a healthy life together. He is also a Certified Nutritional Therapist and Health Coach, host of The Clovis Culture Podcast, musician and inventor of the popular line of superfood powders, “The Perfect Paleo Powder.”
In this episode we talk with Justin about how the invention of an infant feeding tube formula was the catalyst for his company and passion for educating people about the importance of nutrition within families. We then break down a couple of articles. The first article sounds great at first glance, but then becomes a real teachable moment into the importance of ancestral foods and our own discernment skills! We also talk about how Covid has increased our family meals together and allowed for more opportunities to have great discussions about healthful food choices.

Simplifying Health and Wellness to 3 Core Principles:

Nutrition
Sleep
Community
