Making the Best Salads (0:00:00) Salad –Whether you’re a die-hard fan or think they’re utterly boring, it can be hard to prepare a salad that really stands out. It’s one of those foods where, when you taste one that’s exceptionally delicious, it makes you think, “Why don’t I eat salads more often?” So, this morning we called in a professional to help us figure out how to make a salad that consists of more than just lettuce and ranch dressing. Joining us on the show today is Sarah Jampel, recipe developer and editor of Basically at Bon Appetit, to share with us her tips for making extraordinary and delicious salads. Emotional Needs (0:13:53) We all have different needs. Some of us need our daily chocolate fix. Others need a vacation on the beach. But one thing we all have in common is that we all have emotional needs. Needs that, if met, leave us feeling happy and satisfied. But what are emotional needs and how can we fill them? We invited Bob Stahn, mental health counselor and author of “ Get Your Needs Met!,” a book of positive psychology, onto the show today to answer these questions. Stress Awareness Month (0:33:48) As we enter month two of COVID-19, the long-term effects of living in a pandemic are starting to become more obvious. Not only are we running out of shows to watch on Netflix, but it is getting harder for a lot of people to maintain their mental health. Stress, worry, and anxiety are have become a part of daily life, and many of us aren’t prepared to handle these emotions. So what can we do? As part of Stress Awareness Month, we’ve invited a specialist in acute stress and trauma, Dr. Laurie Nadel. Kids and Body Image (0:50:35) We all have our insecurities, and it seems like the internet knows how to point them out. It’s so easy to compare ourselves to the people we see on Instagram. But, when our young kids see displays of what the world considers “perfect” bodies online, it can really have a negative impact on their own self esteem. We want to make sure our kids feel confident in their own skin and stop trying to live up to unrealistic body standards. So, we invited body image coach and fat activist, Amanda Martinez Beck, to teach us more about how to talk to our kids about body image. Managing Your Eating Habits (1:08:32) Right now is an especially difficult time to eat right. We’re all at home, surrounded by tempting treats, and we succumb to those temptations more than we’d probably like to admit. But right now could also be a great time for us to really start eating healthy and treating our bodies right. To find out how we can manage our eating habits, we invited registered dietitian-nutritionist and friend of the show, Laura Silver. Weekend Review (1:25:20) Lisa and Richie talk about what there is to do this weekend, from new streaming shows to the New York Times Bestseller list.
