Screen_Shot_2018-10-09_at_9.14.20_PM.png

We are hanging with our soul sister, the funny + beautiful, Sahara Rose. Everyone in our Secret Facebook group can’t stop talking about our first ever episode with Sahara, over a year ago. With her new GORGEOUS cookbook, Eat Feel Fresh, being released, we knew we had to have her back on. Sahara created this cookbook as a way to bring the beauty of Ayurveda to modern times in easy, accessible recipes that are sure to help you live more aligned with your doshas.

In the episode, you’ll get a run down of the 3 doshas (for a deeper look, listen to our first episode with Sahara), how she brought India to life in the pages of her new cookbook, and why it was important to her to work with local photographers for this project. We all had a good laugh over how Vata Lindsey is, and how Pitta Krista is - but Krista with those beautiful Kapha cheeks and Lindsey spending time on the toilet like a true Pitta, we dive into possible combos! PLUS the why behind the recipes Sahara chose to put in her cookbook. We also dish on dosha’s! Sahara shares why she knew she wanted to be with a Pitta guy, and how her dating experience with a Kapha helped her come to that realization. The two of us just couldn’t love this girl any more.

We also discuss...

  • Looking back at Sahara’s transition from her first book to her second  

  • What tri-doshic cooking is

  • The 6 tastes in Ayurveda  

  • Sahara’s favorite recipes in her cookbook

  • Tips on creating powerful passive income

Ep. 153 NOMADNESS: Creating a Tribe + Movement for People of Color Who Travel - with Evita Robinson

20180121_174538.jpg

#Almost30nation! Hello friends! Excited to introduce you to this week’s guest. Evita Robinson founded the NOMADNESS Travel Tribe, a first-of-its-kind movement bringing together and representing the underrepresented in mainstream travel. Their mission is to show the world that travel has no racial, gender, religious, economic, or interest limitations through community representation and relevancy (like the $50,000,000 being injected into the travel industry every year).


In today’s political climate, it’s more important than ever to get out and travel, meet different people, and immerse yourself in diverse cultures. It allows us to gain perspective and see ourselves as just a part of humanity; something to keep you modest, keep you grounded, and keep you connected to what’s REAL! We love the way Evita embodies this, and we know you are all going to love her.


We discuss…


  • A stark view of how people of color are underrepresented in the travel industry

  • The highs and lows of NOMADNESS’ group travel events (but mostly highs)

  • How NOMADNESS came to be

  • Reverse culture shock: when home feels like a foreign country

  • How Evita approaches building a community

  • Navigating a new challenge + stepping into your light

  • How social media changed travel

  • Evita’s relationship with spirituality

  • The Airbnb experience for people of color + partnering with Airbnb

  • Why you need people of color in your marketing teams + HR

  • Creating safe + sacred spaces

  • What’s next for NOMADNESS: the first U.S. festival for travelers of color!
