Welcome back my clan of the crave bears! I am back from my summer vacation! We went to Oregon to visit with my family and then went to Pennsylvania to visit with my husband’s family. We have so much fun but it wasn’t a relaxing trip. We are all exhausted! Maybe you have had a similar experience visiting family.
Make sure you tune into next week’s show. I will be announcing September 2016 Craving Cleanse. I’m going to offer a great deal just for crave cast listeners. This will be the last live craving cleanse! Things are changing here at craving cleanse headquarters.
Today we are going to be talking about dairy cravings and fall energy. First we are going to have a q&a on dairy with Sarah Peck and then we are going to dive into a spiritual reading with Monica Kenton to see what’s in store for September!

Today on the Crave Cast I am interviewing Jennifer Grayson. She is an author of a new book called: Unlatched: The Evolution of Breastfeeding and the Making of Controversy. Breastfeeding is certainly a controversy here in the United States. We have an incredibly large international diverse population but her book and the topic it covers is so interesting. Her book really dives into the history of breastfeeding and the trouble that women in America of having with it and the different topics around it. Jennifer is an environmental journalist, Huffington Post columnist and her work has appeared in several publications. After having her own children, her lifetime commitment to restore the vanishing connection to the natural world led her to her research for Unlatched. Be sure to stay tuned until the end and share this podcast with anyone you know who is pregnant, wants to become pregnant or is having problems with breastfeeding.

Welcome back my clan of the crave bears! Welcome to episode 101! A couple of announcements, last week we had a great interview with Dan Harris author of 10 Percent Happier where we talked about meditation for skeptics. We announced a 14-day meditation challenge! You can join us every day. It’s 5 minutes or less a day and we are right in the middle of it but you can join now! Go to the app store and download Dan Harris’s 10 Percent Happier meditation app. It’s free and for the first 7 days, you get quick little video lessons about the basics of meditation. Join us on facebook at bit.ly/wfdgroup with daily hits from me and tips, our meditation journey. We made it a 14-day challenge because the science shows that if you meditate every day for 14 days you start seeing a benefit from meditating.
Next big announcement, we are having our first live meetup! Come join me and other Crave Bears at our Crave Bear picnic! I'll be in my hometown, Portland, Oregon on August 14th from 5 to 7 pm. Come join me at the Arbor Lodge park in the picnic area!

Today we are talking about self-worth. This is one the biggest causes for food cravings and emotional eating. Just not feeling worthy. Today our guest, Nancy Levin will be talking about money, finances and the stress that women experience around these topics which then leads them to use food to calm us down. We will be specifically talking about how food and craving relate to our “money story”. We will be talking about Nancy’s new book: Worthy: Boost Your Self-Worth to Grow Your Net Worth. She is also the bestselling author of Jump…And Your Life will appear and Writing for my Life…Reclaiming the Lost Pieces of Me.

We’re here! It’s episode 100! Welcome, my Clan of the Crave Bears! I’m so excited to be announcing episode 100! Who would have thought a year and a half ago when I launched this little show that we would now have this vibrant, growing, engaged community of you, my Crave Bears. We are growing in numbers every week. Thank you so much for your support! And thank you to all the authors, experts and dear friends of mine who have come onto the show to share their wisdom and give you inspiration.
Our topic today is something that I have struggled with over the years but I have seen the positive effect it has had on my own life. When done correctly this technique can work on the body and mind. So today, my dears, we are going to talk about meditation with none other than Dan Harris! He is an award-winning journalist from Good Morning America. We are going to talk about the benefits of meditation and Dan’s story.
