Have you ever had to decide to let go of a dream or a good thing?Maybe you thought the relationship you’re in would lead to marriage or you thought the job you took was your dream job.Maybe the city you moved to isn’t a fit anymore, the home you thought you would grow old in is becoming too much work, or your schedule has become overwhelming and you can’t do it all.When we have things in our life that didn’t turn out how we thought they would, or when we take on too much at once, it often leads us to a point where we have to make a decision - and maybe even let go of something that seemed like a good thing.This can often be one of the hardest decisions to make because letting go feels a lot like giving up and you start to wonder if this makes you a quitter (psst… it doesn’t).In this episode, Jordan talks all about how to know when to let go of a good thing.

With a society that’s obsessed with diet culture, even “healing” diets like Whole 30, Paleo, and Keto, we often love having easy-to-follow lists that tell us exactly what to eat and not eat in order to be healthy.But this has led to nutrition becoming overly black and white, with people often demonizing certain foods.

How can we enjoy food freedom while also fueling our body with the appropriate nutrients that will help us thrive?That’s what Jordan explores in this episode with Kori Meloy and Fallon Danae as they discuss what it really looks like to nourish your body, restore your metabolism, and experience food freedom.Tune in to this powerful episode to learn about:Kori and Fallon’s own healing journey through endometriosis, Hashimoto’s, and restrictive eatingThe importance of nourishing your body to support your metabolismWhat it looks like to fuel your body with biologically available and restorative foodsThe harm of diet culture and following popular dietsHow many calories we really need and why most women aren’t getting enoughFor more information, visit rewildculture.com and fallonstable.com.Links from the episode:Westin A.

I'm thankful for this message, thank you. maybe this topic should've been done at a little later date to where you would be able to portray your experience with less negativity and criticism :/ I just feel as if I listened to a rant more than a message. God bless your ministry
