I like to keep my posts short and sweet…

and this one is no exception.

You know the drill…I give you a quick tip to help you feel happy, healthy and hot.  Maybe I throw in a musical reference.  Or show you a cute pair of shoes.  You can read it quickly and get on with your day.

But sometimes it’s nice to dig a little deeper…and that’s exactly what I did in my recent convo with Elle Russ.

Elle is the host of the popular Primal Blueprint Podcast, and I was thrilled when she asked me to be a guest.


We discussed my struggles with cystic acne, digestive issues and anxiety, despite eating what I thought was a very healthy diet.  Of course we also covered how I finally solved those problems.  Oh, and we talked about growing up in the 70’s, shopping sprees at Sephora, and getting a pony for Christmas (which actually happened to me.)

In other words, we covered a lot of ground!  And I felt like I really got to express why I do what I do.  Because I truly want you to look and feel amazing.  Not just ok.  Or even good. I want you to be happy, healthy and hot.

Elle was awesome to talk to.  I highly recommend that you subscribe to the Primal Blueprint Podcast so you never miss one of her interviews.  (Listen to mine first though! 😉)

Elle is also the author of The Paleo Thyroid Solution.  I will be devoting an entire post to this book…I learned so much from it.  In the meantime, if you or anyone you know suffers from any thyroid issues, get your hands on it as quickly as you can.

I told you I’d keep this post short and sweet, but of course I need to answer the question:

Can listening to the Primal Blueprint Podcast help you feel happy, healthy and hot?  You know it!  And the best way to listen…download to your iPhone, pop in some earbuds, and go for a nice long walk.

You’ll be happy because you’ll be learning something new and being entertained while you walk.  All of the Primal Blueprint Podcast episodes are focused on staying healthy.  And with all that exercise, and the tips I give on healthy skin and great natural beauty products, of course you’ll be hot!

  1. I did a double-take when I saw your name pop up on my podcast feed for the latest Primal Blueprint. An excellent interview, Elizabeth. Your history, and story, is very interesting. I have a similar upbringing to you, except mine was in the 60s, not the 70s. Your description of visiting “dusty” mysterious health food stores (or something to that effect) was so familiar, as my mom was also into health and nutrition. Every family vacation we took in the 60s and 70s had to include a visit to every hole in the wall health food store along our route!
    Congratulations on such an informative interview.

  2. Hey Primal Plum, I am still doing a double take! I was thrilled to be interviewed for the podcast, and I’m so glad you liked it. Funny how similar our upbringings are. My parents are now in their 80s and doing great (they are actually doing a Whole30 right now!) so I guess my mom was on to something! Those old school health food stores really were pretty creepy!


    1. Do you remember the smell? They always had a distinct smell, sometimes sandelwood (which I loathe to this day) and sometimes some weird herbal combination I can’t place. LOL!

  3. Wow, that’s a really interesting interview, Elizabeth. I’m a 70s child too, I turn 46 soon. I particularly loved what you and Ellen were saying about listening to your body and reaching the next level of fat burning. I think I’m definitely coming to that – I very much recognise eating too many nuts. I like the freedom of not being horribly hungry too.

    Hippy shops here most certainly used to smell of patchouli.

    1. Funny how we all recall that smell Tanya!! And yes, we all need to listen to our bodies. I’m amazed at how my appetite can change from one day to the next. And with the seasons too. The weather is really starting to cool down here in PA, and I’m loving the warming spices and also have been making tea out of fresh ginger from time to time.
