[EXPERT SERIES] Debunking Nutrition and Plant-Based Lifestyle Myths with Chef Heather Flowers and Dr. Erin Mayfield

Mar 01, 2023

Welcome to The Becoming Better Together in Mindset and Business with Brie Willits.

Did you know food affects your mindset? Studies have shown it can even impact your depression. Our nutrition is key to our physical and mental health and therefore impacts our everyday lives.

I've been wanting to become plant-based for a while but I had limiting beliefs and didn't want to be a burden to others (like in social gatherings). I reached out to Heather Flowers, registered nurse and plant based chef and she brought along Dr. Erin Mayfield, a doctor with years of research and knowledge to teach us more about proper nutrition.

Whether you want to become more plant-based or just improve the way you eat, this episode is a gold mine of data. We talk about protein consumption, soy. Are fruits okay? Should I worry about leptin?
