The next Whole Life Challenge starts in:

Join us on the podcast today as we talk to Lela Buttery, chef, educator, activist, coffee enthusiast, and author of We Can Do Butter, a modern treatise on reclaiming our relationship with and control over the food that we eat.

Lela shares how the most important step to making a change in your lifestyle around food is making a conscious commitment—deciding that it’s important enough to take on the work of making it.

We cover an array of topics from the difference between food and “phood” products, to learning to plan, source, and prep, to Mary Poppins, to, of course, butter.

You can learn more about Lela at Lela Buttery and about her book at We Can Do Butter. And if you find yourself in Venice, California, check out her fantastic neighborhood coffee shop, Another Kind of Sunrise, where you can try her Buttery Brew.
