Kris Carr: These Simple Lifestyle Adjustments Can Help You Overcome Anything – Even Cancer
Greetings, superfriends, and welcome to this week’s show!
Our guest today is the #1 New York Times Bestselling author behind Crazy Sexy Diet and Crazy Sexy Kitchen. You also may know her from the documentary Crazy Sexy Cancer, which documents her battle with cancer, and ability to thrive despite it.
In total, she’s authored four books, inspired hundreds of thousands with her blog, and been on just about every TV show you can imagine. She’s even garnered attention from such greats as Oprah Winfrey – amazing!
You guys, this episode is flat out AWESOME… I went into it expecting to talk a bit about nutrition, and to be honest, I was completely blind sighted by how much wisdom, kindness, and inspiration she had to share. At some point, you’ll hear that I was just about at the outer limits of my interview skills, just struggling to juggle all of the incredible life lessons that Kris was sharing… It was seriously THAT good.
In the episode, we talk about health and nutrition and juicing and fighting cancer… but we also talk about self esteem, self love, self talk, meditation, daily habits, and even entrepreneurship. As I said, Kris is such an incredible fountain of inspiration… I know this episode is going to blow you guys away.
