Thank you for such an amazing response to the return of the podcast! Hearing and seeing your excitement makes me all the more excited to launch the episodes that are to come. As I mentioned in the intro episode, for this season, we’re going to dive into some topics that aren’t related to food. Today, we’re talking about one of those topics: minimalism. Why talk about things like minimalism? Because I truly believe that wellness is about more than just food or movement. When we’re stressed and living in clutter, it’s really hard to be “well.”

In today’s episode, I’m talking with Miranda Anderson about embracing minimalism. Miranda shares how to live a minimalist lifestyle with kids and a family. Her tips and stories will encourage and inspire you to say no to the clutter and consumerism and yes to intentional living.

    Kristin,
    This episode really resonated with me, and I’ve listened to it a few times. You asked such great questions, and I really enjoyed listening to Miranda explain her journey and realizations – you’re both so well-spoken! I’ve naturally lived a minimal lifestyle (without really knowing it, until it was a “thing”), and I could relate a lot to what she talked about while also learning something new. Thank you so much for doing these podcasts, yours is by far my favourite one to listen to! Take care!
