I’m am your host, Cassy Joy Garcia, of Fed and Fit. And today I’m joined by a lovely guest. Her name is Phoebe Lapine. Phoebe is a food and health writer, gluten free chef, wellness personality, culinary instructor, and speaker born and raised in New York City, where she continues to live and eat. Great places to eat there. On her award-winning blog, Feed Me Phoebe, she shares recipes for healthy comfort food and insights about balanced healthy lifestyle choices, beyond what's on your plate. Her forthcoming memoir, The Wellness Project, chronicles her journey with Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and how she finally found the middle ground between health and hedonism by making one lifestyle change one month at a time.<br> <br> Phoebe, I’m so excited to have you on the show. Thank you for coming on today! <br> <br> Phoebe Lapine: Oh thank you for having me.<br> <br> Cassy Joy: Absolutely. It’s a true pleasure. I’m excited to hear about your story. And I love this, one lifestyle change one month at a time. It’s something that I tackle in a portion of my business. And I think it’s very, very wise. But I told you before the show I was going to hand the baton off to you, because I would like for you to tell a little bit more about your story. Nobody knows you like you do. So if you don’t mind, I would love to hear a little bit about your health journey, a little bit about your book, your blog, and I guess some of your biggest takeaways.<br> <br> Phoebe Lapine: Absolutely. So, my health journey and my food career journey actually started around the exact same time. But it took a few years for them to kind of intersect and combine into one. So I started blogging a year after graduating college, just kind of on a whim. At the time, my food outlook didn’t really have anything to do with the nourishment from each part of a meal, and more had to do with the comfort of cooking and the social nourishment it gave me.<br> <br>
