Amanda of Mama Eats Plants is one of those people who it feels like you’re really seeing her authentic self when you look at her social media. She’s always experimenting in the kitchen and if you’re a long time listener you know she’s been on the pod twice before sharing her thoughtful insights. Today we’re discussing how restrictive recipes can be, capturing a narrative rather than ‘content’ for the internet, and the aftermath of going viral on a Buzzfeed video.

You can find Amanda on her website, Instagram, or check out her cookbook Mama Eats. You can hear Amanda’s past episodes of the podcast talking about making the zero waste lifestyle sustainable on ep #097, and on #105 talking about healing her chronic pain with plants, both are all time fan favorites.

Her cookbook, Mama Eats, is a thing is beauty.

Support for today’s episode comes from OSEA Malibu. OSEA puts your health and the health of our planet first with potent skincare solutions that are pure, safe and effective! Formulated with all skin concerns in mind, OSEA makes products infused with sustainably-sourced, organic Patagonian seaweed and active botanicals. Seaweed is nutrient and mineral-rich, and bioavailable which means it allows products to easily absorb into the skin and effectively target multiple skin concerns. OSEA can help reveal and illuminate your natural radiance, whether you’re looking for hydration, oil-balancing, anti-aging or blemish solutions. Every product is sustainably packaged, non-toxic, cruelty-free, vegan and made with love in California.

If you’re looking to try an OSEA product and don’t know where to start, I highly suggest the Ocean Cleanser. It’s gentle but removes oils without leaving you feeling stripped, plus it smells heavenly.
