We so much enjoyed chatting with dietitian Laura Schoenfeld about how we can support our adrenals, reduce stress, and find that happy, healthy place our bodies crave! We had a wonderful conversation with Laura—including some really specific advice—and as you’ll hear, she really knows her stuff!

This was a really great reminder that so many women work hard on maintaining their health, but end up overstressed, overtrained, and undernourished. Let’s keep taking care of our bodies, but in a way that allows us to get back to a space of physical, mental, and emotional nourishment!
