Catch Up with Olivia Noceda on Moving to NYC, Food Freedom + Following Your Own Path

June 28, 2021

#47: In this episode, I am catching up with one of my favorites, Olivia Noceda. Otherwise known as @olivianoceda on the internet. Olivia fills us in on her crazy a$$ move to NYC from LA, digesting the last year with COVID and all the insanity that went down. And the coolest story of how Olivia and I first connect through Instagram (banana bread is obviously involved). We also chat about finding food freedom and ditching diet culture and doing our own thing. If there is one thing to take away from this episode (there are tons but...) it should be the importance of following your own path and to stop comparing ourselves to others. Olivia is the queen of this and I cannot wait for you guys to listen.
