The Biggest Mistake Women Make with Food (video w/Kris Carr)

Sister,

Think Hurricane Sandy is the only powerhouse female around? I’ve got Kris Carr in the house! And in this week’s Ask Mama, I am flipping the switch and yo’ Mama is asking the Q’s.  I recently had the privilege of interviewing my pal, sister, girlfriend, and compatriot Kris Carr (who is also one of our speakers at Creation Course!) on Skype.

Kris Carr is a New York Times bestselling author, wellness activist, Sister Goddess, and cancer thriver. You can learn more about her inspiring story at KrisCarr.com.

Tune in and listen to Kris brag and talk passionately about the relationship between women and food, her own journey to health, and her brand new amazing book. You’ll also hear her describe the fantasy dinner she would cook for me!

Kris is not only an expert when it comes to a plant-based diet. She’s also a genius at practicing the art of loving yourself exquisitely. More on this in my blog, “I am God.”

Crazy Sexy Kitchen is on shelves and ready to recharge your life TODAY. Click here for a sneak peek of the book. Kris is also giving away some special gifts for online and in-store buyers—get the full scoop here.

In the comments below, let me know how you like the interview, your thoughts about women, food, and health, and what gorgeous, healthy meal you are having for breakfast, lunch, or dinner today!

And if you know a woman who’s passionate about food and flavor, please share this post.

With so much love and pleasure,
Mama Gena

    The preview shows a interesting new recipe book with great lay-out and some recipes to tantalize the taste buds. Sadly, I see no nutritional information.

    • regena October 30, 2012, 4:42 pm

      check out kris’s first book- crazy sexy diet- for tons of nutritional info!

  • sister goddess aphrodisiac liz October 30, 2012, 1:19 pm

    SOO love you both very much!!! I like all her recipes — AND

    1.it is obvious – this is the problem with city people that have never spent time on a farm, or lived in the country – or spent time with indigenous lifestyles of natives that live in harmony with nature ecologically. Native Americans find plant based offense and discriminatory – is same ol white women thinking they know it all and is highly ignorant.

    2. the true test if something is that healing is how does is hold out for the majority of women especially…. lets see she how she would fare through trying to get prego, then have a healthy pregnancy and have that baby, breastfeed it , have no disease, absolutely no tooth decay- with her self and have several children children and then cross the rubicon into menopause and into her eighties – without illness and disease – and still have a glow…not likely sisters….. I know LOTS of women who do that but never on plant based diet

    sorry to disagree- I support gettin the book for fun new recipes- but to make this diet a lifestyle is ignorant and risky – unless you enjoy funding your dentist.

      Clear projection of your ignorance. The evidence of a plant based diet being ideal for human beings is overwhelming. No matter what race you are.

    Fascinating how her partner chef writes about his asthma being cured from going dairy free. I have seen that happen with my daughter!

  • Gena October 30, 2012, 10:50 am

      happy birthday, laura!

    Love the interview and being a mad sciencetist in the kitchen! It’s great that there is more and more focus on connecting food with pleasure. One thing that I love about living in Paris is I’m always learning something new about living well. The newest thing that I am learning is how to be more demanding in the quality of what I eat and how I eat it. For instance, one of my greatest pleasure is learning how to fold my salad leaves in a nice little package instead of cutting it. And the finishing touch on a meal really does complete. I’m also fortunate that through my job, I have met some amazing French people who love to share their pleasure of eating and drinking, and also this new vocabulary word-organoleptique! It truly makes the difference between eating and fine dining :-)!

    • regena October 30, 2012, 4:41 pm

      folding your salad leaves? cooool……..

  • Earth Empress Shakaya October 30, 2012, 8:14 am

    Food is a love letter…
    Kris Carr is a messenger of that love…

    Thank you ladies for inviting us all to take Exquisite Care of ourself through the pleasure of beautiful, exquisite, plant based food.
