Episode 009: Easy Nutrition Tips To Stay Healthy At Work With Jessica Cording

Raise your (virtual) hand if any of the following has happened in the last week:

 

  • You slept til the last possible second, missing breakfast at home and forgetting the lunch you packed.
  • You raced into work like a bat out of hell and were thrown into a series of meetings and forgot breakfast….and maybe lunch
  • You set aside time for lunch but it got hijacked by a meeting or someone else’s agenda (And grab a listen to this episode on mindfulness and boundaries for additional resources on this)
  • You were starving at work and only had sugary candy or salty crap to rely on
  • You felt run down and/or exhausted.

 

I think most of us, myself included, have our virtual hands in the air right about now. The truth of the matter is that it’s EASY to have any of those scenarios happen, but before you spiral into the depths of despair over that, it’s also way easier than you think to stop that vicious cycle in its tracks.

 

Enter Jessica Cording, MS, RD, CDN and founder of Jessica Cording Nutrition. She works with individuals and corporations (like, maybe yours?) to help them feel better at work so that they can feel good, be productive and not want to crawl back into their bed the second they wake up in the morning.

We’re talking with Jess about lots of goodies today including:

  • How to make breakfast work for you (even if you’re ‘not a breakfast person)
  • Her favorite “Non-Sad Work Lunches” that are easy to make and filling. You can grab the full recipes here.
  • Her story: how she got into this field (in case it’s a field of interest for you too!)
  • How to meet yourself where you’re at, rather than trying to force huge changes overnight
  • Changing nutrition habits in your 30s, when you can no longer have a 20 piece bucket of KFC and be fine the next day (No? Just me?)

 

So do yourself a solid on the way home from work tonight and take a listen to this week’s show. And then put ONE thing into place that you’ll try this week to help yourself FEEL BETTER with food. And comment in the comments below with what you chose and we’ll chat!

This week we’re talking to Ashley Feinstein Gerstley, founder of the Fiscal Femme and financial wellness and money coach. I know I say this a lot, but this was such a fun one to record for so many reasons. In addition to  her general awesomeness surrounding the work she does with clients, students, and corporate wellness programs, she’s on the air today to help any of us in the following situations:

  • You got used to a lifestyle with a high salary but want OUT. The idea of a pay cut terrifies you.
  • You don’t get paid what you’re worth and it’s starting to take its toll
  • You want to start your own business but don’t know how to rein in the spending and/or figure out to change your mindset from one of lack to abundance

 

If any of the  above made you gasp in agreement, tune into Episode 007: Stop Stressing About Money- Here’s How with Ashley here:
