I’m so excited to share with you More Than Good Food!

My name is Brooke Gordon and I’m your host.  I wanted to take just a few minutes to introduce myself and explain the intent of this podcast and what you can expect.

The goal of this podcast is to have honest conversations with women who are experts in their field, and those who have lived experience that they want to share, about what it means to live a healthy life in a busy world. More importantly, I want to get into things we would be embarrassed to talk about at a restaurant but that you might hear friends discussing at the kitchen table.

If you have a suggestion for an upcoming show or would like to be a guest on the show, I would love to hear from you »

About the Host

My story is that finding balance in my life and managing my weight has been a struggle for me because I have naturally high cholesterol and I had a crazy stressful job that made it worse. It shot up from on the high side of normal to crazy high so I started seeing a specialist who put me on medication but I wasn’t sure how I felt when the clinical dietician suggested that I become a vegan. I tried it for a few months but it wasn’t the right thing for my body – I was bloated and hungry all the time.

I’m always looking for new information or techniques to try to see if it can help me balance those hormones. I became a certified nutrition coach and author of  Week by Week – a blog about meal planning – because can be daunting when a child or partner decides to become a paleo-pescatarian and you don’t know what that means, let alone how to cook for them. Not everyone wants to sift through all the details – they want someone to help them figure out what to do next. I not only love digging into the details but and truly enjoy providing that support to other women.

As I’m sure you can tell, I love food but what I keep coming back to is that what we eat is only one component of our lifestyle.  On top of posting pictures and writing up new recipe ideas, I spend time reading new research on movement, digestion, and stress management – but I thought it would be more interesting to have a conversation than to just talk about what I’ve been learning. More importantly, I want to get into things we would be embarrassed to talk about at a restaurant but that you might hear friends discussing at the kitchen table.

The goal of the More Than Good Food podcast is to have those honest conversations with women who are experts in their field, and those who have lived experience that they want to share, about what it means to live a healthy life in a busy world.

Because it’s a conversation, episodes won’t have a specific length but I don’t expect them to be longer than an hour.

I’ll be writing up show notes with links to different resources. It will also serve as a place to thank our advertisers and supporters who generously provide opportunities to help offset the costs. I’m also a management consultant (and love love love my current role) so showcasing the hard work of my guests is important to me. My promise to you is that I won’t post anything that I don’t personally recommend and use myself.

I hope you will join me for a conversation with my favourite cookbook author, Julie Daniluk… and remember that living a healthy life is about About More Than Good Food.

Special Thanks Goes To …

I’d like to thank Steve from BlackAddr Audio for the tutorials on using Audacity and recording equipment that helped get me started. Love you loads!
