Over the years I’ve heard from so many of you about how THM has helped you feel a little less alone, get creative in the kitchen and transform our society’s very narrow definition of health. And while these things completely fill me with joy, what you don’t know is that I needed this place more than you. As dramatic as it may sound, THM saved me.
As my recent podcast guest Natasha Adamo shared, “you don’t need to be healed to help others” and this statement could not be more true. While I’m certainly not healed, sharing my journey on the internet has made me better. To know I’m helping you is just icing on the cake.
I know I’m on a very long journey and certainly have plenty to work on, but I’m no longer that scared, self-conscious and completely lost 23 year old that was living in my “basement apartment”. I’ve found purpose in my day-to-day life and in the process, also found myself.
I’ve been so happy to hear how excited you guys have been about the return of the podcast! To everyone who’s emailed, commented and reviewed the show, I’m eternally grateful! I absolutely love curating and producing the podcast so your support is just icing on the cake. THANK YOU.
Today’s guest has made frequent appearances on the blog over the years. Lexi from Lexi’s Clean Kitchen is an old friend (in blogging terms that means 4 years) and one of the best people I know. We’ve met up several times in person and most recently a few weeks ago when she was in SF for a food tour. She’s so incredibly genuine and just such a breath of fresh air in what can feel like a super dogmatic industry.
Last year Lexi’s first cookbook came out (which I wrote about here!) and it was a huge success! I’m so excited to have her on the show to chat about her food philosophy, taking on blogging full time and and what it was actually like to write a cookbook. I’m so grateful she was willing to open up and chat about her experience.
