hey there


Many of us want to be as healthy as we can and to support our bodies to the best of our abilities, so we try to choose healthier foods.

But somewhere along the way, we may start to cut out whole food groups that we think are unhealthy.

And maybe in the pursuit of health, we even start limiting calories or restricting foods further, worrying that food intolerances may be affecting us.

Before we know it, our diet has become severely restricted. Maybe we even start to develop a negative relationship with food, feeling stressed about our food choices.

The question becomes: at what point does eating healthy do more harm than good?

And how do we find the balance between choosing healthy options that nourish our body without being stressed or overly restrictive?

In this episode of the SHE podcast, I talk with clinical nutritionist and functional medicine practitioner Dr. Lauryn Lax about about when eating healthy actually causes harm.

Hi, I'm Jordan.
& I'm glad you're here.

I have a huge heart for helping other mamas (and future mamas to-be) naturally support their body, embrace their femininity, and make healthy swaps for their families in a way that works for them and glorifies God (zero perfection required)

My days are spent writing books, hosting the SHE podcast, sharing product recommendations, and creating resources rooted in biblical values to help you do just that.
