Real Food Mamas Podcast

The Real Food Mamas Podcast is about two crunchy moms chatting about health, nutrition, and motherhood. The Real Food Mamas are passionate about pregnancy, postpartum, and healthy living for the whole family. Through their combination of professional skills (Naturopathic Doctor and Registered Dietitian) they're able to provide expert information, while admitting they're still figuring out life as new moms. They discuss everything related to the challenges of parenting, to making pregnancy, birth, and postpartum empowering experiences, to simple and efficient things you can do (starting today!) to keep yourself and your whole family healthy. Listen to Steph & Elana share stories, discuss their views, and interview experts about topics ranging from baby led weaning, elimination communication, sleep, home birth, postpartum recovery, breastfeeding struggles, babywearing, parenting styles, diastesis recti, pelvic floor health, their favorite products and of course their passion for real food. All done very respectfully in a judgment-free zone because we’re all learning together.

The Real Food Mamas Podcast is about two crunchy moms chatting about health, nutrition and just what real life is as a mom.

Dec 20, 2016

Join Aglaée as she interviews Ali Barton who tells her incredibly inspiring story. This is a MUST listen! We also talk about organ donation, Ali's surrogate pregnancy, the biggest lesson she wants to teach her kids, how her mindset kept her going and how she gives us permission to complain and not compare our struggles. <3

Enjoy the listen! :)

Ali Barton's bio:

   Ali Barton is a licensed psychotherapist and wellness coach with a private practice outside of Boston, Ma. Currently, her most important job is a stay at home mom to her son Ethan, who was born months before Ali had her heart transplant in the summer of 2014. Ali has always been interested in health and real food, especially after getting sick with multiple autoimmune diseases related to undiagnosed celiac disease in 2011 – Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and ulcerative colitis. When Ali got pregnant  with her doctor's approval in 2014, her autoimmune disease spiraled out of control, and her heart went into failure due to a rare condition called endomyocardial fibrosis. Doctors recommended Ali to end her pregnancy at 21 weeks, and she refused to do so. Her son Ethan was born prematurely at 31, and is thriving today! She had her heart transplant  when Ethan was six months old.

     After her experience, Ali wrote a book called "Against Doctor's Orders", where she tells her story, and also talks about trusting your gut and advocating for yourself in a medical setting. The book will be published in 2017. She blogs at www.aliweinbergbarton.com. When Ali is seeing clients, she specializes in working with women with mood disorders such as anxiety and depression, and with those who have chronic health conditions that impact their mood and functioning.

Join Aglaée as she interviews registered dietitian and BLW expert Jessica Coll to talk about Baby-Led Weaning and share practical tips and even recipes for you and your little ones. More specifically, we cover the introduction of meat, how to ensure babies get enough iron, how to introduce leafy greens BLW-style and how to make eating out easier.

Enjoy the listen! :)

Jessica Coll's bio:

Jessica Coll is obsessed with food. That is probably why she spent more than a thousand hours studying breasts. In addition to being a registered dietitian, she became a lactation consultant because breastmilk is a human being’s very first experience with food. Listen to this: everyone’s first real relationship is with food, from the womb to the spoon. For lots of us in North America, that relationship is troubled from day one. This is a story most people are trying to rewrite for the rest of their lives.

As a parent, you are in the most powerful position to help your baby transform this relationship into a love story. One that nourishes the body and the spirit.  When Jessica was six months old, her staple food was canned soup. She wants to make sure no human being has to suffer through this.

This is part of the reason why she created the BLW Online Course where she guides parents in this new adventure.  Get 50% off the lifetime access of Jessica’s Baby Led Weaning online course by entering the code REALFOODMAMAS at blw.jessicacoll.com).

Danielle Binns’ bio:

Danielle Binns (CNP) is a Pediatric Nutritionist & Picky Eating Expert.  More importantly, she’s a mom who gets it.  Motherhood is difficult in its own right.  But when your child doesn’t eat well, mom’s naturally worry.  Danielle’s first daughter was an extremely picky eater and mealtimes were a constant stress.  Today her daughter is thriving and one of the most adventurous kids at the dinner table.

With qualifications in Holistic Nutrition and Children’s Feeding, Danielle knows firsthand how to transform picky eaters into healthy eaters.  Her evidence-based strategies & “Picky Eater Protocol” changed mealtimes forever for many families, including her own.  Danielle also has a special place in her heart for ‘little ones’ who are underweight – like her daughter – and offers programs to help them thrive.  Understanding the stress that comes with raising a picky eater, she is equally committed to helping moms achieve health and happiness.  So they too can start seeing motherhood in a bright and colourful way.

Join us as we discuss how to improve your health with fermented foods, which include sauerkraut, kombucha, kefir, kimchi and yogurt.

In this episode, Aglaée interviews Sarah Ramsden and talk about what fermented foods are, how they can benefit your whole family and how to overcome your fear of making your own fermented foods. We also cover the safety of fermented foods for pregnant women, little ones and the whole family.

Which fermented foods have you tasted? And have you ever tried fermenting foods at home? Let us know in the comments below or reach us on our facebook page.

 

Sarah Ramsden's bio:

Sarah Ramsden is a Personal Coach and Nutritionist who believes that taking control of your health, is like a gateway drug for taking control of the rest of your life.

She is obsessed with fermented foods, and is the creator of “Fearless Fermentation”, where she provides online fermentation classes for beginners that dispel myths, and break through the worry of things going moldy. Her goal is to get fermented foods back on the dinner table as an everyday condiment.

In her work as a personal coach, she works with women who’ve won the battle with major health issues, but are left feeling like an imposter in their own life: out of place, everywhere they used to feel at home. Coached by a brain tumour survivor who’s been EXACTLY where they are, Sarah helps her clients stop wondering if they’re making the most of their second chance, and turn it into the most exciting and meaningful time of their life.
