Are Meal Kits Worth It? (0:00:00) Perhaps now more than ever, meal kits have been sneaking their way onto the list of alternatives to grocery shopping and growing in popularity. Companies like Blue Apron, Green Chef, and Hello Fresh have been changing the grocery shopping game by delivering recipes and their ingredients right to your doorstep. But how do they compare when pitted against traditional grocery shopping and meal prep when it comes to price, quality, and overall healthiness? Are they worth it? Joining us on the show today is Dr. Lisa Young, a professional nutritionist and author of the book Finally Full Finally Slim, here with us to discuss what we should know before buying meal kits. Virtual Meeting Etiquette (0:15:48) Previously on the show we discussed the “business mullet”, meaning business on top and casual on bottom. In other words, you could wear a blazer and dress shirt with sweatpants. It’s the perfect combo for zoom meetings, because no one can see what’s beneath the table, right? Or so you think... until it backfires... like it did for the ABC reporter who accidentally went live on air sporting no pants. While that is obviously a big faux pas, there are some more subtle things that can make our virtual meetings a much more frustrating (and embarrassing) experience than they need to be. To help us understand virtual meeting etiquette, we’ve invited Diane Gottsman to the show. Diane is a sociologist-turned-Etiquette Expert, and founder of the Protocol School of Texas. Deception (0:36:10) We all lie. Some people might tell you they never tell lies... but they’re probably not being real with you. Sometimes we tell little white lies to hide our unpopular opinions or avoid offending people. Other times we lie to hide something we did. We know when we’re telling a fib. But how do we know when someone else is trying to deceive us? To learn more about how to see through the lies, we invited Dr. David Matsumoto, a world-renowned expert in deception and nonverbal behavior, to tell us about his research into lying and the advice he gives to professional lie catchers. Changing Your Hairstyle (0:50:37) One of the latest quarantine trends is to change up your hairstyle. People have been dying, shaving and cutting their hair and posting pics of their new do’s online. Under usual circumstances, we’d probably say it’s best to just head into the salon to get it professionally done. But since we can’t, we wanted to share some tips for successfully changing up your quarantine looks on your own. Here to share with us her advice is celebrity hair stylist Kiyah Wright. One Word to Change Your Life (1:05:33) Babe Ruth once said, “Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game.” Lots of us find ourselves on the sidelines of life not actually doing what we’ve always dreamed of doing, because we’re afraid of what might happen if we try. But if you can change your mindset with just one word, maybe you can lift yourself off the ground and start playing the game. Today we’re joined by career and life coach, Anita K. She’s here to tell us what that one word is and how it can change our lives. Weekend Review (1:27:02) Lisa and Richie talk about what there is to do this weekend, from the newest streaming shows to the New York Times Bestseller List.
