no. 64 - The Grazing Boards Episode

If you've ever stumbled onto an Instagram picture of a beautiful board piled high in meats, cheese, fruits and more, you can appreciate the appetite appeal of being served a grazing board. Today's show features Robin Plotkin -- a culinary dietitian who turned her love of entertaining with grazing boards into a successful new business, Board Mama, that brings beautiful boards to events like girls' night out, real estate open house, teacher appreciation and much, much more.

{wednesday rewind} no. 21 - The Orangetheory Episode

If checking your heart rate is something you only have done at an annual check-up, maybe it’s time to look into the “theory” behind one of the nation’s hottest fitness brands — Orangetheory. Grounded in research that shows the “after-burn” effect of high-intensity, cardio-blasting workouts (read: high heart rates), Orangetheory promises “strength, more energy, and more life.” But does it live up to its promises? Today’s episode features Katy Widrick — group fitness instructor,...


no. 63 - The Juicing Episode

Is juicing good for you? It’s a question often asked of dietitians, but can be met with mixed messages. Today’s episode on juicing unpacks the potential of juicing for health, addresses who benefits most and discusses what fruits & veggies are best to juice. In this episode with Danielle Omar, author of Skinny Juices: 101 Juice Recipes for Detox and Weight Loss, we discuss: (Here is the Breville juicer I have and recommend.) I round out this episode with a continued discussion on juice,...


{bonus} Let's Celebrate!

It feels like just yesterday I was releasing that first full-length episode of the podcast about Sleep and here we are… almost to the end of Season 2 having just crossed over the 200,000 download mark PLUS jumping into the Top 30 of Personal Journal Podcasts on iTunes this weekend. Woot woot! I think this calls for a giveaway, don’t you? So here’s what I’m gonna do: I’m giving away a fun little summer-inspired prize pack (to keep your body hydrated, your skin healthy and your eyelashes...


no. 62 - The Panic Attacks Episode

Is there a difference between a panic attack and an anxiety attack? It's a common question, but one that many people can't answer. There are some important distinctions between the two and today's episode uncovers the truth about panic attacks. As a part of Mental Health Awareness Month, today's episode features my interview with Dr. Lata McGinn of Cognitive Behavior Consultants. In the show we discuss: I close out today's show with a recommendation for the perfect gift for graduates...


{wednesday rewind} no. 33 - The BeachBody Episode

BeachBody may sound like the kind of program only the young, supermodel striving types should try. But the ease, affordability and workout-anywhere nature of the program actually make it an ideal choice for many unmillennials. Or at least that's what one fan of the show thinks. Today's show is her story. In this episode I interview Julie Staley -- a talented entrepreneur, mom and newbie to the BeachBody workout program. While Julie isn't an official BeachBody coach and isn't trying to...


no. 61 - The Stories of Elders Episode

Known as "The Greatest Generation," people born before 1945 witnessed incredible changes throughout their lives, and perhaps most notable were the changes seen in technology. As the years pass quickly by, we are losing more and more members of this generation and with them, the wisdom of what a world looks like untouched by the digital revolution. Today's interview with Veronica Kirin, author of Stories of Elders: What The Greatest Generation Knows About Technology That You Don't,...


{bonus} An Odds and Ends Episode

As a feature at the end of every episode, Odds & Ends has become a popular part of the show where we get caught up on topics and start up new conversations. In this bonus episode, I'm discussing Odds & Ends from retinol to allergy season to school weigh-ins.


The Nutrigenomics Episode

The popularity of DNA testing is widespread, but what, if anything can our DNA tell us about the food we should eat and the exercises we should do? Understanding nutrigenomics -- the scientific study of the interaction of nutrition and genes, especially with regard to the prevention or treatment of disease -- may provide some answers. In this episode of the podcast, I am chatting with Courtney McCormick about nutrigenomics. Courtney is the Manager of Clinical Nutrition and Research for...


{Spring Break}

Today is the start of Spring Break for me and my family so there will be no new episode in the feed today. However, there's always new content going up on the This Unmillennial Life Blog, including last Friday's new recipe for Air Fryer Tempeh Tacos. It's a new favorite of mine... check it out! I'd also invite you to take a minute to either catch up on any episodes you may have missed this season OR do me a favor and provide me feedback via my Listener Survey. Thanks so much. You guys...


{wednesday rewind} no. 2 - The Sleep Episode (Part I)

Getting a good night’s sleep is the stuff dreams are made of for many women. But all too often the foods we eat, drinks we drink and habits we keep are preventing the slumber we so deserve and desperately need. In this episode, I share not only the top tips experts recommend for uncovering an approach to a better night’s sleep, but also share my personal experiences battling insomnia. On the show you’ll learn about: To close out the show, you’ll also hear from...


no. 59 - The Sleep Episode (Part II)

And just like that, we're back where we started -- SLEEP! When you open up your podcast app today you'll see I'm revisiting the topic that kicked off the podcast -- Sleep. Since sleepless nights plague many of us after 40 it's always worthy for a discussion and especially in light of the fact that so many folks who follow me on Instagram have asked about my gravity blanket. So that's what I'm doing today... discussing my weighted blanket and more ... with Dr. Kara Mohr (yes, you've met her...


{wednesday rewind} no. 37 - The Grocery Delivery Episode

As retailers look for ways to stay competitive in providing straight-to-your-door service, grocery delivery has become a huge business. Most unmillennials may not remember the days of the milkman delivering to your doorstep, but there’s a good chance we may be having milk and more delivered to our homes today. In today’s episode, I’m interviewing retail expert, Shari Steinbach, on the four most popular grocery delivery ordering services. Steinbach, who has enjoyed a 25+ year career as a...


no. 58 - The College Admissions Epsisode

The scandal around college admissions has received major attention recently. But the overwhelming majority of families eventually find themselves needing to help their child navigate the college application process, which looks very different than it did when we as unmillennials applied so many years ago. Experts say college admissions prep needs to begin long before the actual applications are due and likely involves taking stock of what the child is doing -- both in the classroom and...


{wednesday rewind} The Protein Powder Episode

As unmillennials, choosing a “protein powder” used to mean choosing between vanilla or chocolate Carnation Instant Breakfast powder. But walk down the supplement aisle of your local supermarket and you may wonder if you’re actually in a bodybuilder’s kitchen. Mega-jars of protein powders have gone mainstream, but do you really know if any of these powders are for you, what benefits they offer or how to choose one? Today’s podcast features frequent show contributor, Dr. Chris Mohr, a...

{wednesday rewind} no. 15 - The BodyPump Episode

As unmillennials we’ve come a long way since the days of leotards and legwarmers. And while group fitness has evolved over the years, one thing remains true — the best fitness routine for YOU is the one you’ll actually do consistently and love. I’ve shared on the show that my personal choice for fitness is BodyPump. Today, I’m taking time to explain why. In this episode of This Unmillennial Life, I’m geeking out on all things BodyPump related with my friend, fellow food blogger and...


no. 57 - The Adult Acne Episode

You know you’re unmillennial when you’re buying acne cream for both you and your teenager. Adult acne becomes a new complaint for many women at midlife.

In this episode with my guest from The Skin Cancer Episode, Dr. Emily Keller, we discuss: I close out the show in the Odds & Ends ending with a recap of my current skincare routine, including how pleased I’ve been with the over-the-counter retinol product made by Neutrogena that...


{wednesday rewind} no. 30 - The Thinx Episode

Surely you’ve seen the ads in your Facebook feed. You know the ones — the lady in the unassuming panties with a caption along the lines of “underwear for women who have periods.” Those are Thinx panties and today’s podcast gives a real-life recap of what it’s like to buy, wear and wash them. In this episode, I interview Carla Birnberg — author, blogger and online content creator, who tried Thinx for herself and quickly realized that someone else in her home might benefit even more from the...


no. 56 - The Online Clothing {Consignment & Rental} Episode

Millennials may be MarieKondoing their way to the most minimalist closet they can create, but one thing remains the same across generations — we all want to look our best. Making that option affordable and easy is the goal of online clothing consignment and rental services like Rent the Runway, Tradesy, Poshmark and more. But are they really worth the price tag? And how do they work? In today’s episode with my friend Deanna, author of The 30-Minute Mediterranean Diet Cookbook, and former...
