Liz Wolfe: Hey everyone! It’s me, Liz! And Diane is here too!

Diane Sanfilippo: Hey!

Liz Wolfe: And it’s episode 200!

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughing}

Liz Wolfe: {trumpet sounds}

Diane Sanfilippo: There should definitely be some kind of cool music for that. Hopefully there is.

Liz Wolfe: Some kind of stock sound clip.

{applause, cheering}

Diane Sanfilippo: Yeah.

Liz Wolfe: Yay! Congratulations on episode 200, Diane.

Diane Sanfilippo: Oh, you too.

Liz Wolfe: Thank you. It’s been a long ride. I’ve had moments where I wanted to throttle you, moments where I wanted to hug you and snuggle, but it’s been overall a really good experience.

Diane Sanfilippo: Most of those moments we’ve been thousands of miles away anyway, so. No physical contact would ensue. {laughs}

Liz Wolfe: Yeah. And you and I are friends because we both know what it’s like to want to throttle each other.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughing}

Liz Wolfe: Ding! We should have a ding every time we get a movie reference in there.

Diane Sanfilippo: Or a Mean Girls quote especially, but Scott will be listening and he really doesn’t know most of them, so he wouldn’t know that that; because that was a reference, not a quote.

Liz Wolfe: Yes, yes.

Diane Sanfilippo: See the distinction?

Liz Wolfe: {laughs}

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs} That’s actually another reference, and I don’t even remember what it is!

Liz Wolfe: That’s from Clueless!

Diane Sanfilippo: Ohh! {laughing} It totally is!

Liz Wolfe: its one thing to light up a doobie at parties….

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughing}

Liz Wolfe: It’s quite another thing to be fried all day. You see the distinction?

Diane Sanfilippo: I live in movie quotes, and I don’t even know what they’re from because I’ve been quoting them for so long.

Liz Wolfe: They’re so ingrained.

Diane Sanfilippo: That’s amazing.

Liz Wolfe: Anyway, how about a quick word from our wonderful sponsors.

Liz Wolfe: Alright, so we did that and that’s done. What are your updates for the week?

Diane Sanfilippo: I don’t’ think we have time for updates today. {laughs}

Liz Wolfe: Alright. I don’t have any updates, so I’m good if you’re good.

Diane Sanfilippo: My updates is, we have a whole lot of questions from our peeps, so let’s get rolling.

Liz Wolfe: A whole lot of questions! I’m a little bit nervous. We both kind of agreed that we weren’t going to craft answers ahead of time.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs} Yeah, this is rapid fire, so.

Liz Wolfe: Yeah.

Diane Sanfilippo: I looked at them to copy and paste them into the document, but I did not pre-think about any of the answers.

Liz Wolfe: I did not pre-think either.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughing}

Liz Wolfe: As is the theme for me lately. So basically what we’re going to do so people know who’s talking is I will read the questions.

Diane Sanfilippo: You’re Liz.

Liz Wolfe: And then I will say, Diane.

Diane Sanfilippo: Ok, and then I’ll answer first.

Liz Wolfe: Which gives you permission to speak.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs} Ok.

Liz Wolfe: And then you’ll answer, and then you’ll give me permission to speak and then I’ll answer.

Diane Sanfilippo: Ok.

Liz Wolfe: Unless they’re just for one of us in particular, and then it should be obvious.

Diane Sanfilippo: Yeah, because the first question actually came from someone about our voices, so you can read the first one. {laughs}

Liz Wolfe: {laughs} Ok. Do I need to read the names that go with this?

Diane Sanfilippo: If you can, try to. I think it’s funny to give them a little shout out.

1. Can you speak in an accent? [4:54]

Liz Wolfe: Alright, and so the reason we’re doing this for our 200th episode, we’re doing exactly what we did for I think our 100th episode.

Diane Sanfilippo: Mm-hmm.

Liz Wolfe: Which is just doing rapid fire, ask us anything questions, so going a little bit out of the business/health realm and going into the more personal realm, and we’ll see how we do with that.

Diane Sanfilippo: {singing} Getting to know you! {laughs}

Liz Wolfe: Oh my. Alright, McCarthy asks, “Could one of you start speaking in an accent so it’s easier to tell you apart? Who can do the best accent?” Ok, Diane.

Diane Sanfilippo: No. I absolutely could not. I do not know how to do accents, and so I’m going to say Liz would probably have to do that. Liz

Liz Wolfe: I can do Marisa Tomei from My Cousin Vinny.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughing}

Liz Wolfe: {accented} Oh my gawd, what a nightmare!

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs}

Liz Wolfe: That’s alright. I can do almost any accent, really.

Diane Sanfilippo: {accented} You’re going to kill a deer?

Liz Wolfe: {laughing} {accented} Are you aware of the ongoing cholesterol problem in this country? I can’t do Joe Pesci. That’s way too hard.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughing} That was terrible.

2. What personality trait would you want from the other? [6:04]

Liz Wolfe: {laughs} I don’t know, I think that’s about it. Alright, next one. This one came to us a few times in a few different variations, but it’s pretty much the same idea here. This is from Whitney; “if you, Diane, could have one of Real Food Liz’s personality traits, what would it be and vice versa?” Diane , this one better be complimentary. What’s your answer?

Diane Sanfilippo: I would have your way with words, for sure.

Liz Wolfe: Oh shucks.

Diane Sanfilippo: You’re an excellent writer, when you write your email Monday’s, I’m reading it, as if I don’t know everything that you’re already writing because either we talked about it, or I know all these things about your life, and I’m reading it like, what is she going to say? So yeah, I would definitely take your creative, sassy writing abilities.

Liz Wolfe: Well that’s super nice. If I could have one of your personality traits it would totally be your drive in business because I just think you’re so impressive. You just get so much done, and you can juggle so many {accented} balls all at the same time.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs}

Liz Wolfe: I think it’s amazing.

Diane Sanfilippo: That was one of your best quotes ever in the first episode that Scott edited, where at the end of the episode it just reclipped; “I got a lot of balls in the air.”

Liz Wolfe: {laughing}

Diane Sanfilippo: It was hilarious.

3. How hard would a “Freaky Friday” be for you guys? [7:18]

Liz Wolfe: Oh man. Alright, next one, from Sarah; “Along the same lines of The Holiday, Freaky Friday, etc., what would be the single hardest thing for each of you if you two suddenly switched places. I.e., Diane feeding goats and Liz doing a Crossfit WOD.” Diane.

Diane Sanfilippo: Sarah may have forgotten that you have a child, {laughing} so I’m going to say the hardest thing for me would just be baby. Period. That would be it.

Liz Wolfe: I think that’s pretty obvious though, so what if there was no baby.

Diane Sanfilippo: Alright, second one, honestly, your husband is in the military and the fact that he’s away a lot, that would probably be the hardest thing for me. Yep.

Liz Wolfe: Yeah, that’s true. Ok, so if you and I switched places the hardest thing for me would be having to cook all that stuff all the time! You’re just always cooking.

Diane Sanfilippo: I do cook a lot, but I like to cook, so.

Liz Wolfe: I couldn’t do it. I couldn’t handle it. And the nail polish, I couldn’t do.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs} Well I don’t do that either, I just sit somewhere {laughs}.

4. Choice of cheat food without consequences [8:30]

Liz Wolfe: Oh, ok, that’s true. Alright, well scratch that one. I could definitely go get my nails done. Alright, these are hard. This is hard. Alright, this is from {laughs}, oh ok, this is probably a joke or some really smart reference that I’m not getting, Psytherism. I’m sure there’s some smart thing underlying that name. Alright, Psytherism. “If you could eat one cheat food without any consequences, what would it be?” Diane, what do you say?

Diane Sanfilippo: Donuts.

Liz Wolfe: {laughs}

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs} Krispy Kreme. A lot of them. Like, I constantly want donuts, and haven’t had a regular grain, gluten, fried glazed with sugar donut in years. Yeah.

Liz Wolfe: I’d have to say in this moment with you here today, I would have to say donuts as well. Because really, I do a lot of my cheat foods, that would probably consider cheat foods, like nachos, or I don’t know, nachos.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs}

Liz Wolfe: I could do those now and then, I could find a way to do those and not have it completely kill me. But, I would definitely say donuts are one of those things, you don’t know what they’re fried in, you don’t know what kind of fat they’re using.

Diane Sanfilippo: It’s mostly because I would eat so many of them. I wouldn’t eat just one donut. I’m an abstainer or all. It’s all or nothing for me, so I haven’t had them in a long time because I would eat at least 4. {laughs} So there you go.

Liz Wolfe: Look out, you’re almost all the fingers on one hand there.

Diane Sanfilippo: At least 4. {laughs}

5. First sardine experience [9:56]

Liz Wolfe: Look out. Alright, this is from We Used to Call it Food; “do you remember your first sardine experience?” {laughing} That’s funny.

Diane Sanfilippo: Our listeners are awesome.

Liz Wolfe: “What was it like?” Diane, do you remember your first sardine experience?

Diane Sanfilippo: I don’t. Should I?

Liz Wolfe: I don’t know. We’ve eaten a lot of things that probably would have grossed us out at one point. I don’t know, I just usually wait until I’m ready. So I thought about eating sardines for a long time, and then one day I was like, I’m just going to eat these sardines.

Diane Sanfilippo: Yeah, I think I did the same thing, as a lot of our listeners, I had a tine for a while, and I think I put it probably on a salad, and I remember feeling like that was not as big of a deal as I made it out to be before I opened the tin.

Liz Wolfe: Yeah.

Diane Sanfilippo: Yeah.

Liz Wolfe: I started with canned salmon, which has the bones in it just like the tins of sardines, so that kind of got me ready for the texture and what not. But yeah, I don’t remember. I don’t really remember.

6. Unloved paleo food that you now love [10:55]

Liz Wolfe: Alright, this is from Katie025. “Was there a food you hated or never thought you’d eat early in your paleo/real food journey that you now love?” What do you think, D?

Diane Sanfilippo: I don’t know how related this is to paleo, but several years ago I pretty much hated oregano, and came around to loving it.

Liz Wolfe: That’s such a boring answer.

Diane Sanfilippo: I know.

Liz Wolfe: Because that could be any type food you eat.

Diane Sanfilippo: I always love pretty much all kinds of food, I think.

Liz Wolfe: Yeah, you’re pretty much the foodie.

Diane Sanfilippo: I don’t think some of my taste changes were paleo related. At some point I thought I didn’t like Indian food, because I had never tried it, and then I ate it and I was like, this is the best food ever.

Liz Wolfe: It is the best food ever.

Diane Sanfilippo: So yeah, I still hate ginger that’s pickled or crazy weird, and I still hate parsley, paleo did not change that for me. But everything else I’ve always liked, so there you go.

Liz Wolfe: You know, I don’t love, there are definitely foods that I thought I hated or never thought I’d eat early in the journey that I don’t love now because I think they taste good, but I love them because of what they do for me, so that would definitely be liver, broth, various kinds of seafood, that type of thing. I can’t say that I love oysters, but I really enjoy eating them and knowing how good they are for me.

Diane Sanfilippo: Yeah.

Liz Wolfe: I don’t enjoy my raw liver smoothie.

Diane Sanfilippo: I do feel that way about liver. But I love oysters, I love seafood. I’ve always loved that stuff.

Liz Wolfe: Yeah, you’re the oyster gal.

Diane Sanfilippo: I’m unrelatable, because {laughs} I like all the food.

7. Favorite vegetable [12:41]

Liz Wolfe: You’re so unrelatable. I do like sardines, though. Ok, Go Away Shell. “What’s your favorite vegetable?” Diane, what’s your favorite vegetable?

Diane Sanfilippo: I’m going to go with cauliflower, just of the moment, because I feel like I can make it into so many different things.

Liz Wolfe: That’s so weird.

Diane Sanfilippo: Mmm.

Liz Wolfe: I’ve got to say my favorite vegetable is and always has been carrots. He called me carrots!

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs}

Liz Wolfe: It’s always carrots. Multicolored carrots, all the carrots. Love the raw carrots, steamed carrots, the grated carrots.

Diane Sanfilippo: I like a lot of vegetables, so for me to pick one was not easy, but for you Go Away Shell, Shelly, whatever your name is, I picked.

Liz Wolfe: She picked. She picked cauliflower. I don’t know if you noticed. She said cauliflower.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs} Instead of what, “coliflower”?

Liz Wolfe: Mayonnaise and cauliflower.

Diane Sanfilippo: You pronounce things weird. What’s this next name, Elizabeth? {laughs}

8. Least favorite paleo food [13:40]

Liz Wolfe: Alex Quinlan, Diane.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughing} My short name.

Liz Wolfe: {laughs} “What’s your least favorite,” Favour, so we know this is not a domestic question, this is probably from Canada or Australia or somewhere where they use the “our” which I love. “What is your least favorite paleo food?” Diane.

Diane Sanfilippo: It would probably be organ meats.

Liz Wolfe: yeah.

Diane Sanfilippo: Liver, probably. I do like pate a lot, I actually enjoy eating pate, so I don’t have a problem with that. But I would say otherwise.

Liz Wolfe: Which is really weird, because I don’t like pate so much in texture or in flavor.

Diane Sanfilippo: Well I grew up eating liverwurst, so the taste of it is not off putting to me. It’s like, oh this tastes like my childhood growing up, visiting my great grandmother in New York City. It’s just very nostalgic for me.

Liz Wolfe: I think I would say my least favorite paleo food would be liver. I don’t enjoy thinking about preparing, I don’t enjoy preparing it. Maybe if I was more culinary and I could make things a little bit more fun.

Diane Sanfilippo: No, probably not. {laughing}

Liz Wolfe: You don’t think so?

Diane Sanfilippo: Maybe if you made it into pate or mousse that was just more cream and butter. {laughs}

Liz Wolfe: Maybe. But I enjoy eating these things out. Like if we go to the Farm House in Kansas City or something like that and they’ve got head cheese on the menu.

Diane Sanfilippo: Mm-hmm.

Liz Wolfe: I’ll eat that all day. It’s strange.

Diane Sanfilippo: I’d like you to Periscope that, when you eat head cheese all day. I would just want to watch a video of Liz eating head cheese.

Liz Wolfe: Oh, ok. That was a very quotable one.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs}

9. Favorite breakfast [15:18]

Liz Wolfe: Alright, this one. At first I read this, Tom Hanks.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs} Me too.

Liz Wolfe: Dang it, it’s not Tom Hanks. Tons of Thanks, “What is your favorite meal for breakfast?” What’s your favorite breakfast?

Diane Sanfilippo: It’s probably pretty boring, but I think it’s basically what I had today, which is kind of like eggs, bacon, salad. I really like that. And I like goat cheese in my scrambled eggs if I can get it. And I post most of my breakfast on Instagram, so {laughs} you can always see what I’m actually eating and tell what the favorites are, I guess based on that.

Liz Wolfe: I like just to remember to eat breakfast at this point, that’s pretty much where I’m at, so.

Diane Sanfilippo: I mean, I love waffles, but I don’t love how I feel an hour after eating them, typically.

Liz Wolfe: Waffles, friends, work.

Diane Sanfilippo: What?

Liz Wolfe: That’s from Parks and Recreation.

Diane Sanfilippo: Waffles, friends work. {laughs} That’s the order!

Liz Wolfe: But work is third.

Diane Sanfilippo: Work is third.

10. Favorite dessert, paleo or not? [16:12]

Liz Wolfe: Ok. Jessica Media. “What is your favorite dessert, paleo or not?” Diane.

Diane Sanfilippo: Oh, shoot. Mmm, I was supposed to be ready to answer this question. This is supposed to be rapid fire.

Liz Wolfe: Yeah.

Diane Sanfilippo: My favorite dessert. Ah, I feel like I already said this with the donut thing. Can it be a donut?

Liz Wolfe: Ok, well what’s your favorite dessert that you would eat. Since we’ve already got the donuts down, what would you eat now, and feel like it was a treat but not a total …

Diane Sanfilippo: Probably flourless brownies. Oh, or flourless chocolate cake. I’ve never been a cake person; I like really dense, rich flavor, so even years ago when people were making the birthday cake for someone in the office, I was like, can you guys make brownies for me instead {laughs} of the cake, because I don’t like cake.

Liz Wolfe: Are you serious, you would ask people to make a special birthday treat.

Diane Sanfilippo: They asked what I wanted! They asked, what kind of cake do you want, and I said, I don’t want cake. I want brownies.

Liz Wolfe: Ok.

Diane Sanfilippo: So two or three people made brownies, and it was awesome. So brownies or a flourless chocolate cake, and it would be more favorite if I don’t have to share it {laughs} with anyone. Like the whole cake.

Liz Wolfe: A lot of qualifications for this one.

Diane Sanfilippo: Yeah.

Liz Wolfe: I definitely like a good brownie, like a really dense, dark chocolate type of treat. I love crème Brule too.

Diane Sanfilippo: Me too!

Liz Wolfe: But it’s so hard to eat a good one. It’s so hard to find good crème Brule. Uh. Ugh! It’s so hard.

Diane Sanfilippo: Yeah, we have similar tastes in dessert. Would you rather brownie {laughs} I’m just kidding.

Liz Wolfe: Oh no.

Diane Sanfilippo: So crème Brule, to make it really good, it’s got to have that really crunchy decently thick top, right?

Liz Wolfe: Yeah. Yeah. And a really, but the inside has to be done right, too, because when you get through that, some people use that crunchy top to cover all manner of crème Brule sins underneath, and that’s not cool.

Diane Sanfilippo: Yeah, if it’s too light and it’s not yolky enough.

Liz Wolfe: Yeah.

Diane Sanfilippo: Hmm. Yeah, ok. {laughs}

Liz Wolfe: I know it. Alright, Carazma. “Do you ever question your paleo diet?” Diane.

Diane Sanfilippo: No. I think that’s because I don’t eat like 100% strict paleo, so I don’t ever question that real food is better for me than processed refined food. No, I don’t question that.

Liz Wolfe: I would say not really. There have been times when I’ve questioned the macronutrient composition where I’m thinking, oh maybe I need a little bit more fiber right now, or maybe I need a little bit more fat right now, but yeah I’ve never questioned the whole real food thing. I think that’s pretty; you get through writing about 80,000 words about eating real food, it’s not one you… you’re either out or you're in at that point.

Diane Sanfilippo: Yeah. {laughs} Speaking of in or out. {laughs} The next question.

11. Roller coasters; in or out? [18:57]

Liz Wolfe: KDawn52. “Roller coasters; are you in or are you out?” I think I’m out. Sorry, you first!

Diane Sanfilippo: I’m in. 100%.

Liz Wolfe: For realisies?

Diane Sanfilippo: Yeah, totally. Upside down, yeah. Great. I’d rather not stand. Because I’m like, really? It’s a ride, I’m not supposed to be physically active {laughs} during a ride. I want to sit down. I like the sit down kind.

Liz Wolfe: I used to go to Six Flags in the summer, and we go to Worlds of Fun out here outside Kansas City, but I think I’m more like that guy from Along Came Polly now, who was like the risk assessing guy.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs}

Liz Wolfe: I’m just like, look.

Diane Sanfilippo: I am like that.

Liz Wolfe: On the off chance that I fly out of that thing, I’m just not, I don’t even like to drive that much anymore.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughing}

Liz Wolfe: Because of this whole risk assessment weighing, do I really need to go do that? No, I don’t think so.

Diane Sanfilippo: I’m definitely like that with a lot of things these days, but I haven’t ridden a roller coaster in quite some time. But yeah. I’m not into skiing or snowboarding, mostly because I think it’s probably more dangerous than anything else for me. But roller coasters? Yeah, I’d say I’m in.

Liz Wolfe: I’d bet you’d be good on a snowboard.

Diane Sanfilippo: I was, the one time I did it, after getting some lessons. I was pretty good.

Liz Wolfe: Lessons are really key. I tried to let my husband give me some snowboard lessons, and it was more like I wanted a divorce than I wanted to snowboard.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs} I dated someone a long time ago for like a month or two, and he happened to give instructions. So I was like, great, I’ll come get a lesson from you. But it didn’t go that great, it was kind of before Crossfit, before I ever did a lot of balance training and trapeze training and all that, so I definitely was not {laughs}. Before I was in the circus.

Liz Wolfe: Yeah, it was before my trapeze training.

Diane Sanfilippo: It was before I’m as strong as I am now, quite frankly.

Liz Wolfe: Oh man.

Diane Sanfilippo: Yeah.

12. Favorite/least favorite podcast moment [20:53]

Liz Wolfe: Alright, here’s another one. Allie Swoop, “Favorite moment and least favorite moment from any past podcast. Favorite past guest?” I don’t know if I can answer this one. What about you Diane?

Diane Sanfilippo: I think what I said just a minute ago. Favorite moment was when Scott did that edit, and you just said, I’ve just got a lot of balls in the air. And this was before you had the baby, I think you were just trying to get a lot of projects done before the baby came.

Liz Wolfe: Yeah.

Diane Sanfilippo: Favorite past guest; I don’t know. I really don’t…

Liz Wolfe: Yeah that’s a hard one.

Diane Sanfilippo: I don’t know. We’ve had a lot of really great guests.

Liz Wolfe: We have.

Diane Sanfilippo: I can’t pick a favorite. I feel like that would be hurtful to a lot of people. {laughs} I don’t know.

Liz Wolfe: So I think my favorite moment was when I said I was growing a person in my uterus, and then just kind of left that dangling just to see who would notice.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs}

Liz Wolfe: And I think Scott might have cut that out.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughing} He did.

Liz Wolfe: He might have ended up cutting it out, because I think I gave a bunch of details earlier; or I didn’t want it in the title or something like that, he being the very thorough, very good man he is, he cut out every single mention of anything in the entire podcast. And I was like, why hasn’t anybody acknowledged my news?

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs}

Liz Wolfe: After the podcast came out. I was kind of sad, and I was like, well, I mean, I’m a private person, I guess this is good.

Diane Sanfilippo: You were like, that was my big ta-da, and nobody said anything!

Liz Wolfe: Nobody got it, nobody cares! Yeah, so that was funny. Favorite past guest; I don’t know man. It just kind of depends; it’s always fun to interview Mark Sisson because it’s like, you know you’re not going to have to try that hard {laughs} because he’s just, boom, boom, boom, got all the good answers, all covered. He’s just so good at being interviewed. And then, it’s fun to talk to Juli Bauer from Nom Nom Paleo, its fun to talk to Michelle Tam from Nom Nom Paleo.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs} You mean Juli Bauer from PaleOMG.

Liz Wolfe: What did I say?

Diane Sanfilippo: Juli Bauer from Nom Nom Paleo. I’m like, she didn’t mean to say that.

Liz Wolfe: Alright, look, we’re in a sleep regression right now.

Diane Sanfilippo: Totally.

Liz Wolfe: And I am, yeah, I don’t even know where I am today. Juli Bauer from PaleOMG, and Michelle Tam from Nom Nom Paleo. Did I get it that time?

Diane Sanfilippo: Yeah, that was good.

Liz Wolfe: Ok. Good.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs}

13. Real World paleo housemates? [23:17]

Liz Wolfe: Alright, another one from Allie Swoop, “if you were going to be on a paleo reality show like MTV’s Real World, what other paleo guru’s would you want to live with and why?“

Diane Sanfilippo: I’m so ready for this one!

Liz Wolfe: {laughing}

Diane Sanfilippo: I’m on the spot with this, but I’m going to blow this one out with who I’m ready to live with. Basically because I’m friends with them, and I know how they all cook. This is the why. It’s obviously going to be Bill and Hayley; I’ve already lived with them for 6 weeks, noncontiguously. {laughs} Is that an appropriate way to word that?

Liz Wolfe: Sure.

Diane Sanfilippo: Word smith? Because they will cook. Pete and Sarah Servold, obviously, chef Pete and Sarah is just like my home girl. She and I are very similar personalities, totally east coast. I’m going to go with Russ. I’ve never met his wife, or I met her briefly if I did, but I’m going to pull Russ Crandall in because, again, the man can cook.

Liz Wolfe: Paleo Takeout, give me a break!

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs} He’s the most interesting man in paleo, so I’m sure there are a lot of stories there. And then I’m going to pull, of course, the rest of my homies, I mean I’m going to pull you into this house.

Liz Wolfe: Thanks.

Diane Sanfilippo: Just because it would be the most entertaining thing. We’ll do charcuterie facials, it will be really fun. And then, who else to round it out? Of course Brittany Angell, because somebody’s got to make the paleo ice cream sandwiches, and I’m going to say Juli Bauer also, and you know, how many people are supposed to be in the paleo Real World house? I don’t know, one more. I’m going to say Michelle Tam, also. Again, people who can cook and/or entertain me. {laughs} And I think Juli would be hilarious, so that’s everyone. That might be 10 people, but that’s it man. I hope I didn’t forget someone who’s like, what the heck Diane. I’m not in your paleo house?

Liz Wolfe: Well this is a hard question, I think it’s kind of mean of you for not giving me a heads up on this one. Now I’m going to offend somebody.

Diane Sanfilippo: Well I just said like however many people, I might offend somebody. I’m just thinking, yeah, I don’t know.

Liz Wolfe: Alright, so definitely you, Bill and Hayley, Servold's. Juli Bauer just because I think she would inject some of that super fun, let’s be awesome vibe into the house, where as I would kind of pull people down and be like, let’s all sit and watch Real Housewives of New York City.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs} I’d be sitting with you. Like, are those people doing something active? Alright let me do it for 5 minutes and then come back to 2 hours on the couch with Liz.

Liz Wolfe: Juli, bring me a marg. Ok, wait, I know, see I can’t even think of more people right now. {laughs} I give up, on to the next one. My brain doesn’t work that fast.

14. So over it paleo craze [26:02]

Liz Wolfe: Alright, this one is from Ellamenopee91. Oh that’s funny. “What is a paleo craze that you’re so over?” Diane.

Diane Sanfilippo: Bulletproof coffee.

Liz Wolfe: Oh I was going to say that too.

Diane Sanfilippo: {Laughs}

Liz Wolfe: Just drink your coffee however you want to drink it, but seriously, nobody invented bulletproof coffee. People have been putting weird stuff in their coffee since time immemorial. It’s just…

Diane Sanfilippo: It’s just a brand and it will not make anybody bulletproof by putting both MCT oil and butter in your coffee. Nobody is bulletproof with that. So, just saying.

Liz Wolfe: Although you may have some extremely bad coffee breath. I’ve noticed that coffee breath from that combo can be way worse. {laughs}

Diane Sanfilippo: You may also spend extra time in the bathroom after your coffee.

Liz Wolfe: Proceed with caution. I’m not saying it doesn’t taste great.

Diane Sanfilippo: Yeah.

Liz Wolfe: But I’m just sick of talking about it.

Diane Sanfilippo: Over it.

Liz Wolfe: Over it. Ok, every once in a while I’m going to have to interject with other people I think of that I want in the paleo house.

Diane Sanfilippo: Ok, ok. I like it. {laughs}

Liz Wolfe: For sure Nom Nom, and while you’re answering I’m going to scroll through my Instagram feed and see who else I want.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughing}

Liz Wolfe: Because I really want to do justice.

Diane Sanfilippo: I reserve the right to also add people, and I’m pretty sure at the end of it, it will be the same house and it will also be extremely large.

Liz Wolfe: Jen Sinkler.

Diane Sanfilippo: Oh, obviously!

Liz Wolfe: Duh.

Diane Sanfilippo: And Emily Schromm. Obviously.

Liz Wolfe: Oh, obvi. Emily Schromm, hell yeah. Ok.

Diane Sanfilippo: So Jen and Emily and Juli will be the fitness girls, and we’ll be sitting in the middle feeling bad that we’re not doing that thing, but then we’ll mostly still be on the couch. {laughs}

Liz Wolfe: We’ll be like, since they’re doing that thing, does that transfer to us by osmosis?

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs} Exactly.

Liz Wolfe: Oh, and obviously the Paleo Treats crew.

Diane Sanfilippo: Oh, obviously.

Liz Wolfe: Obvi. Uhoh, I totally hear a baby crying. Ok, here’s another one. I’ll just ignore her for now.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs}

15. First crazy blog names [28:03]

Liz Wolfe: Katherine James, “Were there any humorous or crazy blog names either of you considered while creating a blog?”

Diane Sanfilippo: No. I’m not funny.

Liz Wolfe: I think you're funny.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs}

Liz Wolfe: Well my blog used to be called Cave Girl Eats, and before that it was called Jerseylizabeth, because I started it when we moved to New Jersey, so.

Liz Wolfe: We are thrilled to have Paleo Treats back on our sponsor roster. We love their treats, from the Mustang bar to the Bandito and everything in between. They have been serving the paleo community since 2009, and were recently recognized by FedEx as one of the top 10 small business in America. Which of course, speaks to how much paleo and healthy eating is growing, but it also speaks to how passionate our friends Nick and Lee and the Paleo Treats team are about what they do. Use the code BALANCEDBITES, one word no space, at http://www.paleotreats.com/ for 10% off. They’ll be at the 2015 Crossfit games at the end of July, and would love to meet any Paleo Treats or Balanced Bites fans who want to drop by.

16. How can I get your beautiful hair? [29:15]

Liz Wolfe: Alright, so this next group of questions, these are kind of fashion and beauty related. This one from Heather Mariel, “What are some tips for getting hair as beautiful as your own,” this is for you. {laughs}

Diane Sanfilippo: You could go to Sally Beauty Store and {laughs} I’m just kidding.

Liz Wolfe: You just clip it in!

Diane Sanfilippo: I was going to say, you can buy some clip in hair extensions. I actually found a pack of those that I had from a year and a half, two years ago from a photo shoot that I did. You can wear those in a photo shoot, but wearing any kind of hair additions in person is tricky and possibly dangers. But, I don’t know what kind of tips I have for the hair itself. I feel like we’re kind of, I don’t know, born with some kind of hair and then what we eat is going to affect it. I don’t wash my hair more than maybe twice a week, so I think that helps. I recently put up a blog post somewhere, or some kind of page. http://blog.balancedbites.com/beachywaves I don’t even know where it is anymore, actually. I’ll see if April can find it and link to it, about how I style my hair with the curling iron that I have, because that’s basically the answer to anything that looks good about my hair has only to do with this curling iron, and nonpaleo products that I use. Because what my hair looks like with nothing in it, and no styling done is nothing special. So there’s that.

Liz Wolfe: Not that this question was for me, but…

Diane Sanfilippo: I think it’s for both of us.

Liz Wolfe: Well, I dye my hair with henna, I do very little else, but when I do videos, I take the time to shower, dry my hair, and curl it. So that’s not every day hair, for sure. I’ve had a pony tail in my hair so much so since I was probably about 7 months pregnant, so much so that the spot where, I have to vary where I put the hair band because the spot where I usually wear my hear on my head, where I usually put the hair band was getting really itchy {laughs}

Diane Sanfilippo: Yeah.

Liz Wolfe: Because I over wear the pony tail, so there you go. And I haven’t dyed my hair in about 6 or 7 months, which is not good. It’s not so good. Oh, Katie Bowman. I want Katie Bowman in our paleo Real World.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs} I feel like I would get yelled at too much for things I’m doing and how I’m sitting.

Liz Wolfe: But wouldn’t that be awesome? I really need somebody to just come out here and correct me, manipulate me physically to get everything aligned, because I know I’ve got some issues right now. Especially after childbirth.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs}

17. Favorite brand of stretchy pants? [31:45]

Liz Wolfe: Ok. Childbirth. This is from Sydney Cakes. “What is your favorite brand or designer of stretchy pants for us bootylicious ladies with strong legs?” Diane.

Diane Sanfilippo: I’m going to guess this means workout pants, because I don’t really know what else that might mean. Obviously Lululemon, Splits 59, those are kind of the two that I have stocking my drawer right now that’s been tidied up and it looks awesome. I’ll have to post a picture to Instagram; wait till you see all my little sushi rolls of my pants and my tank tops. It’s great.

Liz Wolfe: Ooh, sushi rolls of your pants.

Diane Sanfilippo: Mm-hmm.

Liz Wolfe: I like Wal-Mart. I like stealing my husband’s stretchy sweat pants, which I guess aren’t technically workout pants, but stealing his sweatpants and cutting them off into shorts, that was pretty much my uniform of my last 3 months of my pregnancy, but I don’t think that’s what she’s asking.

Diane Sanfilippo: If she didn’t mean regular stretchy pants, if she meant jeans, I’m not positive of all the brands that they are, because Stitch Fix basically just sends them to me in the box that I get with all the Stitch Fix goodies, and I just put them on and magically, every time they send me jeans they pretty much fit. So it’s pretty crazy.

Liz Wolfe: Shoot, I posted something on Instagram a long time ago about these jeans that I loved, and I can’t remember what they were. They were super expensive, and I think I contributed to their Kickstarter, and they were great for booties, but as soon as I started expanding in the waistline, it’s been a long time since I’ve worn them, but I can’t remember what they’re called. They’re a couple of strength oriented/Crossfit oriented brands out there that I can’t remember.

Diane Sanfilippo: I haven’t tried any yet.

18. Top 3 primal beauty brands/products [33:33]

Liz Wolfe: Alright, Sammyanne724, “Addicted to this podcast! You girls are so awesome and inspiring, and really helped me change my outlook and approach to the paleo lifestyle. What are your top 3 favorite primal beauty brands or products? Shampoo, condition, nail polish, whitening toothpaste, etc.? Thanks!”

Diane Sanfilippo: Me first?

Liz Wolfe: Yeah, I guess so. {laughs}

Diane Sanfilippo: I use beauty balm from, what’s it called? What’s the company called?

Liz Wolfe: Green Pasture.

Diane Sanfilippo: Green Pasture! I’m like blue ice, fermented cod liver oil, beauty balm. From Green Pasture, that’s definitely one of my favorites. I mean, I don’t know brands. You know me, and the products.

Liz Wolfe: Yeah, you just do your thing.

Diane Sanfilippo: I just do my thing, and then basically if you’re like, Diane you have to use this, this is the one thing. So, I’m basically waiting for your products, and those will be the ones that I use. I don’t use paleo nail polish or any of that.

Liz Wolfe: So, I love Primal Life Organics, everybody knows that. So much so that I collaborated on a vitamin C serum with them, and that’s going to be out pretty soon. So, if you’re listening to this July 2015, it’s going to be out sometime this summer. If you're listening to it after July 2015, it’s already out, so go look for it. It’s going to be over at Primal Life Organics. What did I just say? PrimalLiveOrganics.com.

Diane Sanfilippo: Mm-hmm.

Liz Wolfe: So that’s my little collaboration with Trina over there. Folks know that I pretty much do the no-poo method with my hair, or I’ll use some fragrance free shampoo, as well, so I don’t really have a good answer for that. I’m really, really liking this stuff from Beauty Counter, so that’s a new one to check out. They’ve got make up, sunblock, stuff like that. And then I guess number 3 would be, I don’t know, I’ve got nothing. I mean, you can make your own whitening toothpaste. I really like oil pulling with coconut oil, so as far as brands go, I guess that’s about that. There’s a ton of really great ones; go over the PurelyPrimalSkincare.com/blog, and we’ve done a bunch of giveaways with products that we really, really like. So there’s a whole list of them over there, really awesome products.

19. Opinions on bras [36:01]

Liz Wolfe: Ok, Melissa16Birch. I’ve met Melissa16Birch in person, lovely gal. “Opinions about bras LOL.” What’s your opinion about bras, Diane?

Diane Sanfilippo: So, I’m not the most well endowed female, up there. {laughs} So generally around the house I don’t wear one at all. So that’s a good portion of my day when I’m working or just hanging out, so I don’t wear one as much as I possibly can. And when I do wear them, if I’m wearing it just for a little bit of support, just kind of going to the grocery store, you know, not wearing some kind of cute outfit I generally do something that’s lighter than a sports bra but kind of has the look of a sports bra. They almost remind me of a training bra from back in the day. They’re kind of like short tank toppy, tighter kind of bras. I don’t know. That’s the kind of in between walk the dog, etc., type of bra.

All of the time, if I’m out and about wearing real people clothes {laughs} and doing real people things; I don’t know why I think I’m a fake person at home working, but I wear these bras from the GAP that are wireless, and they have this light, it’s not really padding but they have a good structure to them, they’re not just a thin fabric. They actually have like a thin pad that makes up the bra itself, but they have no wires and they have convertible straps so I can wear them straight or I can crisscross them for a racer back tank. That’s what I wear. The only ones I wear that have a wire are strapless, if I have to wear those randomly now and then for like a strapless dress or something.

Liz Wolfe: I would say, well I haven’t worn a bra in at least a year. I mean, I guess maybe I have a little bit. But you can’t always do that if you have to see people.

Diane Sanfilippo: Yeah, around my house I’m almost never wearing a bra unless I have this thing where if I’m less comfortable sometimes I’m more productive, it’s totally weird. But if I leave jeans and a bra on with whatever tank top or sweat shirt that I’m wearing, I’ll get more done because I’m uncomfortable. {laughs} I don’t know why.

Liz Wolfe: Well let me back up on what I said, because you cannot wear a bra anywhere or anytime you want. You can do whatever you want if you feel comfortable. But for me, I generally like to just not derail any kind of personal interaction that way, because I know how people react to that type of thing, and I just don’t even want to deal with it. So I will generally put on an extra layer between my breasticles and the outside world.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs}

Liz Wolfe: But I will say, I never do underwire anymore. Ever. And I would definitely encourage other people to try and move that way, as well, if possible.

Diane Sanfilippo: Mm-hmm. Yeah.

Liz Wolfe: Often I’ll just wear an extra tank top as an extra layer instead of a bra.

Diane Sanfilippo: Yeah. Neither of us really were too, I mean now that you’ve had a baby I’m sure it’s quite different, but neither of us really were too big on top, so I’m like a B, so it wasn’t something that I really needed to really worry about. For some women, it’s more uncomfortable not to have any support at all, you know? I think that feels more uncomfortable for them.

Liz Wolfe: Yeah.

Diane Sanfilippo: But I actually, I think the day I decided I was not wearing bras with wires anymore was the day I was flying and I had a bra on, and I was like, I don’t know what it was, I was just sitting there for too many hours, and I was fed up, and I think I just took, you know, magically women we know how to remove a bra from under a shirt with nobody knowing about it, at least those of us who went to camp for a really long time and were just changing. I don’t know, I was just always really modest, so I would change, and nobody knew what happened. Or you know, you’re on the soccer team, and you’re like, I’m going to put a sports bra on and take my other bra off, I’m going to do this all while we’re on the bus on the way to the game.

So anyway, I took the bra off, just in my seat, because I was just fed up. I felt like it was digging into me, and I just couldn’t take it anymore, and I’ve been wearing those wireless ones ever since. But even when I fly a lot of times I’ll just do the super light weight. We had the ones from Splits 59, those really not super supportive ones, and I know you and I used to wear those for traveling a bunch. You know the one I’m talking about?

Liz Wolfe: Totes.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs} I’m like, did I lose you?

Liz Wolfe: I wear that a lot.

Diane Sanfilippo: It’s a sports bra, but you wouldn’t really run in it.

Liz Wolfe: I think we’ve talked about this before, but I can’t remember who I learned this from. Probably Katie Bowman, because it sounds like something that’s up her alley. But the ligaments in your breasts, I guess the ligament tissue in your breast are actually strengthened by being braless, like we think we need bras for support.

Diane Sanfilippo: Right.

Liz Wolfe: Especially larger chested women, so if those who generally feel more comfortable with a bra, like those with bigger breasticles.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs}

Liz Wolfe: I’m sorry, I just love saying that.

Diane Sanfilippo: It’s hilarious.

Liz Wolfe: It’s like the fifth grade boy in me. Try to go bra free when you can, just to strengthen that tissue in your breasts. But, obviously do what makes you most comfortable.

Diane Sanfilippo: Agreed.

20. Natural mermaid hair [41:23]

Liz Wolfe: Ok, Yummy Yarns. Just had a little dog drive by just now.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs}

Liz Wolfe: Alright, “Liz, do you know of any possible way to make all natural mermaid hair, and would either of you try it? I love the podcast so much and I have so much respect and appreciation for both of you. Thanks.” What’s mermaid hair?

Diane Sanfilippo: I have no idea, I’m Googling right now.

Liz Wolfe: I didn’t know it was a thing. Or maybe she’s just talking about can she get your hair with all natural products? Which we’ve been pretty open about that.

Diane Sanfilippo: I think it’s, no I think it’s colored. I think it’s got to be brightly colored. I think that’s what that means.

Liz Wolfe: Huh. Well, you can get super bright, like orange hair, if you use regular henna and your hair is a little bit lighter.

Diane Sanfilippo: She could mean one of two things. One, she could mean super brightly colored, because when I Google mermaid hair, it’s all like blue, green, purple hair. But, she could also mean the beachy waves thing. And, as far as I know, the only way to do that naturally is to actually be at the beach. There’s like magic that happens with the salt water, and the sun, and the sand, and I don’t think spraying salt water at home is going to do the trick. But my “beachy waves.” Oh, I think that’s the page I made it! I think it’s my website/beachy waves. No joke. It is. Balancedbites.com. {laughs} I could not remember what I called this page! http://blog.balancedbites.com/beachywaves. That’s what the page is. Where I talked about how I get my hair the way it is.

Anyway. I don’t use natural things, so I don’t know how it would stay without a whole bunch of spray.

Liz Wolfe: {laughs} I don’t use natural things. Well, I mean, hairspray is not, I generally don’t use hairspray unless it’s really, really necessary but it’s not, aerosol is not great for the environment, obviously, but like you said last podcast, the stuff that you’re going to wash off that’s not really going to be in contact with your skin all that much. You’re probably fine. So you could just do Diane’s method and then shellac it with a little bit of Aqua Net. I won’t tell.

Diane Sanfilippo: Yeah, the Moroccan Oil is the stuff that I use. I think it’s just worse, whatever I’m breathing in I’m sure can’t be good for me, but I just don’t do it that often. My hair is currently in what Emily Schromm would call an obscene pineapple, one of those crazy top knots.

Liz Wolfe: {laughs} Obscene.

Diane Sanfilippo: Yeah.

21. Favorite/least favorite exercise move [43:41]

Liz Wolfe: Alright, this next section is in the gym. Girl With the Hipster Glasses. “Exercise move that you avoid at all costs/favorite exercise move?” Diane?

Diane Sanfilippo: Mmm. What do I avoid at all costs? I’m trying to think if this is in the workout significantly if I’m going to cherry pick and not go. I don’t know about all costs, but I would say overhead squats are not my favorite. My shoulder has been kind of annoyed lately. I don’t think I’ve ever really liked overhead squats. I just find them kind of boring and annoying. I like snatching, that’s like kind of the same position, except I just have to stand up {laughs} instead of lower and stand up. I don’t know, burpees suck. You know what it is, I just don’t have an ego about it, so it’s like, great there’s 100 burpees in this workout? I’ll be here till the next class is halfway through.

Liz Wolfe: {laughs}

Diane Sanfilippo: So I don’t avoid it, I kind of check my ego when I see something that I’m really bad at and I take my time and I kind of don’t care. Favorite exercise move; cleans. Hang cleans.

Liz Wolfe: Hang cleans.

Diane Sanfilippo: They’re my favorite. Hang power clean.

Liz Wolfe: That’s interesting.

Diane Sanfilippo: Just like ripping the bar from midthigh to my clavicle and not having to get back to the ground again. I’ll just do hang cleans, definitely my favorite.

Liz Wolfe: Alright, so exercise that I avoid at all costs would be “yogging”.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs}

Liz Wolfe: I avoid jogging at all costs. Favorite exercise move; within a Crossfit type context, probably pistols or cleans, clean and jerk. But I also really like walking. People know that. I like walking with loads.

22. Biggest pet peeve at the gym [45:49]

Liz Wolfe: Alright, biggest pet peeve at the gym. Give me 90 asks, biggest pet peeve at the gym. What’s yours, Diane?

Diane Sanfilippo: I think my biggest one is when somebody who is kind of newer drops an empty barbell. As if it has bumper plates on it, just because they see other people dropping a barbell, and they thing you’re supposed to just drop it. That’s probably my number one biggest one, because it’s disrespectful and it’s totally not what you’re supposed to do with an empty barbell, you’re only supposed to drop it if it has bumper plates on it that could bounce, and it could break the barbell. So that really bugs me. I’m like, please stop doing that.

Or if somebody; this is kind of like on the same lines, but if they drop a barbell from overhead and it was like the warm-up weight that we just started with, I’m like, dropping is meant for a load that’s really heavy that you don’t want to carry down in that eccentric way. Dropping the barbell, you should be able to guide the bar back down if it’s really not that heavy. I just don’t like when people do that. I’m like, why are you dropping that?

Liz Wolfe: You’re so mean.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs} I’m like, stop dropping the barbell.

Liz Wolfe: My biggest pet peeve is, “look how hard I’m working” noises. Which is, I’ve no problem with grunting and all of those authentic work noises. You’re tired, you're working heard, you grunt some, you can {grunt}, you can scream a little bit, that’s fine. But when people are just like, rawwwrrrr! That type of stuff.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs}

Liz Wolfe: Or you know, they’re really like, oooh-chee!

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs} Like getting ready for the lift, or what.

Liz Wolfe: I don’t know. It’s like that guy said, what’s porn? I know it when I see it. It’s like, I know it when I hear it. When somebody is just making noise, not for the sake of effort that’s being… {laughs}

Diane Sanfilippo: Yeah. I definitely have, like my breath lets out when I’m coming up out of a squat and it’s the last one, I’m making noise with that breath. But yeah, I don’t think it’s gratuitous.

Liz Wolfe: No, not at all.

Diane Sanfilippo: It’s like, oh crap if I don’t kind of exert myself and now sound came out of my mouth, I’m not going to get up. {laughs}

Liz Wolfe: There’s like a couple of tennis players that are really borderline.

Diane Sanfilippo: Mmm, yes.

Liz Wolfe: I don’t know if you need to really give that type of a scream right now, but whatever.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs}

Liz Wolfe: I’m not a pro tennis player, so I don’t know what it’s like.

Diane Sanfilippo: Yeah.

23. What is your middle name? [48:15]

Liz Wolfe: Alright. Oh Borer, what are your middle names? Like the podcast, thanks for all you do.

Diane Sanfilippo: Oh. {laughs} I messed up the order of that one.

Liz Wolfe: That’s alright.

Diane Sanfilippo: These were supposed to be the in the gym category. My middle name is Michelle.

Liz Wolfe: My middle name is Anne. Surprise, surprise, Elizabeth Anne.

24. Favorite fitness accessory [48:32]

Liz Wolfe: Alright, Go away Shell. What’s your favorite fitness accessory?

Diane Sanfilippo: Hmm. A shake weight? I’m just kidding, I don’t know. {laughs}

Liz Wolfe: {laughs} You totally beat me on that one.

Diane Sanfilippo: Accessory?

Liz Wolfe: Mine would be a full bucket of water, just carry that around and when you need a drink…

Diane Sanfilippo: You’re so Laura Ingalls Wilder.

Liz Wolfe: Right.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughing}

Liz Wolfe: I think just some bars, just to hang from. I think the ability to just hang, to work that grip, is really, really underrated. You can do a lot with a bar.

Diane Sanfilippo: Ok, I like that. I don’t know if it’s an accessory, but I do like a good bar. {laughs}

Liz Wolfe: Are we talking like fitbit? Is this something that you wear?

Diane Sanfilippo: I don’t know. I don’t know, I don’t have any of that.

Liz Wolfe: I like zero drop shoes with a wide toe box.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs}

Liz Wolfe: {laughs}

Diane Sanfilippo: I don’t want to tell you what Mean Girls quote I was thinking of there. We’re not saying that on the show. We have a clean label. I don’t know if it would make us explicit. Probably not, but I’m sure somebody’s kids are listening. I honestly, every now and then I do a wristband like a sweat band, because I sweat like crazy.

Liz Wolfe: Your wrists sweat really bad?

Diane Sanfilippo: No, I use it to wipe my forehead. Because I don’t want to lift my shirt up to wipe my face off, and if I don’t have a towel and I’m kind of in the middle of something, I don’t want to stop and grab a towel, if it’s really hot I do put like a sweat band on my arm to wipe my brow, because I sweat like crazy.

Liz Wolfe: You know what I would have said like 8 years ago? I would have said, my spin shoes. {laughs}

Diane Sanfilippo: I have spin shoes! I’m not getting rid of them.

Liz Wolfe: I’m not either! I really like spin class. I still like it.

25. What are Liz’s animals’ names? [50:26]

Diane Sanfilippo: I do too. Alright, these questions are all for Liz. I think there’s 4 of them, so I, Diane, am going to read these questions. Tons of Thanks asks, “What are the names of Liz’s goats, chickens, and dog?”

Liz Wolfe: Ok, so the goats are named Anne Perkins and Leslie Knope. The chickens are not named because they come and go so fast.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs}

Liz Wolfe: {laughs} The dog is Cal and the other dog is Scout. And we’ve got cows, too. Well, when we had pigs they’re names were Lloyd and Harry, and the cows are Thelma Lou and Helen.

Diane Sanfilippo: Lloyd and Harry were then named bacon? {laughs}

Liz Wolfe: Exactly.

Diane Sanfilippo: Ok.

Liz Wolfe: They will all be named in my belly.

26. Biggest surprise of motherhood [51:05]

Diane Sanfilippo: Laura Wilson LW asks, “Liz, what has been the biggest surprise of motherhood so far?”

Liz Wolfe: The biggest surprise? Wow. So, I love it, and I have the most amazing little girl in the world, but what’s been a surprise and this is kind of a serious note, not so much how hard it is but how much it kind of shakes your concept of your own identity, to the point where you’re like, alright, who am I now, and what am I supposed to be doing? I feel loneliness now when I used to be totally fine on my own. So it’s like a whole new, everything about it is so new, and that’s what’s been a huge surprise. I mean, you become something completely different from what you were before, and it’s so hard to explain, and now I feel this camaraderie with other moms where I’m like, I get it, I get you. I could never explain it, but I get it.

Diane Sanfilippo: I could see that, and I could see how it might feel lonely, because also, as much as you have in common with other moms, there are so many things that you don’t want to talk about because people are just judgey or they just have their way or the right way or whatever. I could see that.

Liz Wolfe: Whole new ocean to navigate, for sure.

27. Best part about being a mom [52:24]

Diane Sanfilippo: Mm-hmm. Ok. Andrada Kitchen, I think we know her.

Liz Wolfe: Yeah.

Diane Sanfilippo: From an event down in Cherryhill, were we, maybe? “Liz, what do you love best about being a mom?”

Liz Wolfe: Well she’s just so stinking cute. It’s like, she’ll smile one time, and you’re like, alright, you’ve earned you keep for the day. I’m good.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs}

Liz Wolfe: I don’t care that you never let me put you down. What I love best about being a mom, the breastfeeding relationship has been really, really amazing. So that’s been wonderful; I’m really grateful that that worked out for us. But the other thing that’s been awesome is just having put together a lot of resources about being a mom kind of beforehand has helped me navigate the first few weeks and months in ways I probably wouldn’t have been able to do had I not put together that base of knowledge. Especially with Meg the midwife who helped me out a ton, but even little things like knowing about tongue and lip tie, and being willing to call a lactation consultant. All of those things have made her life better, as well as mine in this whole process. But here’s the thing that I really love best about being a mom, is how much I appreciate my mom.

Diane Sanfilippo: Mmm.

Liz Wolfe: How much I need my mom, and how much she did for me and how amazing she is. It’s a whole new appreciation, and I’m just so glad that I get to feel that for what she did for me.

28. Biggest postpartum food craving [53:46]

Diane Sanfilippo: Aww, that’s so nice. Ok, Maddie Carr asks, “What has been your biggest postpartum food craving?”

Liz Wolfe: My. I don’t know. I don’t know. I never had that many cravings while I was pregnant or after the fact. But I guess I’ve actually really wanted, like toasted oats.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs}

Liz Wolfe: Like, granola.

Diane Sanfilippo: Mmm.

Liz Wolfe: Which it’s just that crunch with some cream or some yogurt poured over the top. I’ll talk about this a ton in baby making and beyond. The realities of what you should or shouldn’t eat, or what you chose to eat. I’ve been doing yogurt, I’ve been doing, you know, a lot of things that aren’t strict paleo, but have just felt right for my body.

Diane Sanfilippo: Cool.

Liz Wolfe: That’s so boring, toasted oats. Really?

Diane Sanfilippo: With yogurt? That sounds really good.

Liz Wolfe: I should have said rocky road ice cream or something, but no, toasted oats I think.

29. Diane’s cat [54:40]

Liz Wolfe: Alright, so this next slew of questions is for Diane. This one is from Tons of Thanks. “What is the name of Diane’s cat?”

Diane Sanfilippo: Mason is the cat.

Liz Wolfe: Mas! Not named after Kourtney Kardashian’s first son.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs} Named before, I’m sure.

Liz Wolfe: Yeah.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs}

30. All about that wedding [55:01]

Liz Wolfe: Alright, Eboz World. “What superficial thing do you care about most being/going perfect while wedding planning?” And Cami_My Little Jar wants to know some details on wedding plans. And, MCNA0132, besides the gluten free cupcakes you mentioned in episode 199, what else is on your wedding menu, and will Liz, Spence, and baby girl be in attendance?

Diane Sanfilippo: Kudos to the keen listener there, MCNA0132.

Liz Wolfe: {laughs}

Diane Sanfilippo: What thing do I care most about? I don’t know. {laughs} I really don’t know.

Liz Wolfe: Come on, something.

Diane Sanfilippo: Ok.

Liz Wolfe: Even if it’s just everybody else having a great time.

Diane Sanfilippo: I mean, it is that, honestly this is a little bit dark, but honestly I just hope that nothing, I mean we don’t have that much time, it’s in mid September. I hope everything is cool with my grandma until then. There’s no reason why it wouldn’t be, but I truly hope that she will be at the wedding. But she should be. She’s like an ox, she’s so strong, and it’s crazy. She’s 93 and she has like 15 lives, definitely not 9. I mean, she’s doing pretty well.

Liz Wolfe: Good.

Diane Sanfilippo: So that’s that. Any other details? It’s just going to be at my parent’s house in the backyard, and I think the ceremony is going to be in the front yard, and there will probably be about 50 people or so. We’ll be eating barbecue food and some other appetizers and stuff like that. It’s not going to be too crazy. I wanted to keep it pretty low maintenance and I wanted to have a party. It’s kind of a joint going away party since we’re moving; we’re actually moving about a month before the wedding, and then coming back for the wedding. So that’s pretty much it. And I don’t know if Liz, Spence, and baby girl will be there, it just depends on what’s going on in their lives at the time.

Liz Wolfe: We’re definitely working on it.

Diane Sanfilippo: It’s no big deal either way. I would love for them to be there, and I think that will be great. But I think Scott and I are going to try and stop through Kansas City on our drive. I’m not somebody who, I’m not going to be mad or disappointed or make somebody feel guilty if they can’t come for whatever their reason is. It is what it is.

Liz Wolfe: You’re a better person than I, my friend.

Diane Sanfilippo: I mean, I’ll be disappointed, you know, it will be a bummer to just not have shared that day with people who are in my life, but I can’t let that make or break a friendship. It’s just one day.

Liz Wolfe: We’re going to be friends no matter what. {singing} Friends forever!

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs} Oh my god.

31. What other podcasts do you listen to? [57:46]

Liz Wolfe: Alright, now. This could be The.Jame, or it could be The.Jame, like the HBO show, which if anybody knows what I’m talking about then we are friends forever. The.Jame, “You often speak and refer to the many other podcasts that you listen to. I’ve picked up on America’s Test Kitchen and Build Your Tribe, but I’m curious what other podcasts you listen to, and why?”

Diane Sanfilippo: I am opening my podcast app in my phone right now to tell you exactly what’s on here. I started listening to Entrepreneurial Thought Leaders. It’s a Stanford series. Not all of them are great, but a couple of them are really good. I really like the Guy Kawasaki talk; that was really great. It was on enchanting people. I thought that was really cool. Social Media Marketing; I listen to that one sometimes, not always great. Love Ask Gary V. That’s probably one of my favorites. It’s just kind of a no nonsense straight shooter. He’s from New Jersey, I’m like yes, awesome. I kind of wish Marie Forleo would put her video content just into a podcast feed, because I don’t know, I don’t really like having to consume it on video.

Liz Wolfe: Same here, I don’t love video.

Diane Sanfilippo: Yeah. And actually, I recently polled my emailing list, and most of them would definitely prefer audio, too. So we like audio. I’m Happier with Gretchen Rubin. Here’s the Thing with Alec Baldwin. Listen to the RobCast. It’s a Rob Bell spiritual, religious type thing. I am not someone who identifies as Christian, however Scott is, and that’s been something that we’re bridging the gap on, and Rob Bell definitely has the outlook and the mindset that kind of jives with how we can look at the world, so, that’s kind of a little personal insight there.

Chalene, MPR’s Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me. That was probably the first podcast that I ever listened to. I used to listen to the Alton Brown cast when he had one. Sometimes Tyler Florence Test Kitchen, although I’d like to take the word fantastic from his vocabulary, because he says it way too much. But I had a crush on Tyler Florence from Food 911 days back in the day on Food Network. That one and Online Marketing Made Easy from Amy Porterfield. I basically will listen to podcasts while I cook, while I do dishes, while I walk, while I clean up my closet, while I do lots of things, so I just really like to engage. I constantly will have my phone next to me to write down ideas, because I listen and I get lots of ideas. So those are all the different ones I listen to.

32. What are you listening to on Audible? [1:00:25]

Liz Wolfe: Okey doke. Actually, this one I think was,

Diane Sanfilippo: It says it’s for you, but I don’t think it was for you.

Liz Wolfe: It says, well I have Audible, I don’t really listen to it right now. The question was, “I know you like Audible. I do too, being a mom, and I have no time to read so listening is where it’s at. So I’m curious what you’re currently listening to and/or what have been some of your favorite Audible listens?” So since you're the one who’s super into audible, Diane, why don’t you give a couple of your favorites, and then I’ll open up mine and see what I’ve got in queue.

Diane Sanfilippo: Ok, I’m just basically opening mine. I haven’t listened to that many things, because I have this weird thing with long form audio where {laughs}. I’m really strange. I’ll just listen to it to fall asleep, and I like to listen to it after I’ve already heard it so I don’t try and stay awake to hear what’s going to happen next. It’s totally weird. But I’ve listened to Bossypants probably more than 50 times in some way. I’ll just hit a chapter randomly and just start listening, and then I’ll fall asleep within 5 minutes, just because I’m not like, oh what’s she going to say next? I know what’s going to happen next.

So Bossypants, Yes Please from Amy Poehler, Bossypants is Tina Fey, obviously. Tina Fey is my spirit animal. Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, that was Mindy Kaling. I love Mindy, but her book actually feels a little bit like a Mindy Kaling version of Bossypants. It’s like she took a lot of the same ideas that Tina did, and just wrote her own version. Which is fine, she’s had a similar trajectory to her career, I think. What I Know for Sure by Oprah Winfrey, I didn’t need to say Winfrey.

Liz Wolfe: {laughs}

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs} I like that book. It’s just a little peaceful, little short insights, and I really like that. I’ve got some Rob Bell stuff on here, What We Talk About When We Talk About God and stuff like that. Just have listened to Crush It from Gary Vaynerchuk, The Thank You Economy, Gary Vaynerchuk, I love those because he was off script a lot, which that’s my jam. I just love when he’s just like, this was not in the book but I’m going to tell you this, because it’s so real. I tried to listen to Food, A Love Story by Jim Gaffigan, but that didn’t go to well. I don’t really like fiction, so I end up listening to a lot of sort of autobiographical stuff. Better Than Before is the other one I have on here, Gretchen Rubin, that goes along with Happier, her podcast. But yeah, that’s what I’ve got on there now. What about you?

Liz Wolfe: Ok, so I’m going to read my queue on Audible because I actually do have quite a few that I’m excited about. Ok, so I’ve got Move Your DNA, which I’ve been working through. Animal Farm; I like the classics. Atlas Shrugged; Baby Knows Best; Bossypants, because you made me; Little Women, The Tipping Point, Call of the Wild, Glass Castle, Grapes of Wrath, Gulliver’s Travels, the Power of Habit; A Short History of Nearly Everything; Your Self Confident Baby, You Are a Badass, Folks This Ain’t Normal, and The Myth of Jake. Actually, that’s not on my Audible list, that’s on my ….

Diane Sanfilippo: That’s a nice queue. You’ve got a good mix of fiction in there; that’s the thing, I just can’t. I’m not a fiction person.

Liz Wolfe: I do like fiction. And that is my little call for Christine Rudolph, if you haven’t done it already, put The Myth of Jake on audio book so I can finish it. Actually, I probably need to double check to see if she’s actually done that yet, because she may have. But that one is on Kindle, too.

Diane Sanfilippo: Here’s my other thing about Audible; I pretty much only buy it if the author has read it. I just have a thing, I think you just cannot get the right vibe if it’s somebody who did not write the book reading it. Unless they’ve passed away.

Liz Wolfe: Well that’s why I can’t listen to To Kill A Mockingbird on audio book, because I need it to be the women that was Scout’s voice in the actual movie to narrate it, and that’s not what’s happening.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs} I’m highly sensitive to sounds like that, so yeah. And plus, I hate to say it, but I think Bossypants was the first one I listened to, and that just kind of ruined me for other audio books, because Tina Fey’s acting basically the whole time. Amy Poehler doesn’t really do that, but Tina really acts it out, and I don’t know. I just really like her tone, and inflection, and all that good stuff.

Liz Wolfe: So, how come you didn’t say Eat the Yolks by Liz Wolfe, read by Liz Wolfe.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs} Shoot.

Liz Wolfe: Because that one was super good.

Diane Sanfilippo: I didn’t scroll far enough, I listened to that one so long ago it was at the bottom of the list.

Liz Wolfe: Ok.

Diane Sanfilippo: Sorry.

Liz Wolfe: It’s ok.

Diane Sanfilippo: I don’t listen to your voice as my lullaby, so it’s not at the top.

Liz Wolfe: {laughs}

Diane Sanfilippo: Darn it.

Liz Wolfe: That would be really sad.

33. Splits 59 vs. Lululemon [1:06:00]

Liz Wolfe: Kdeck3. “I’m in the 140 podcast section, and keep hearing reference to Splits 59. I’m a bit Lululemon obsessed, and Diane I know you once worked there, but what are the pros and cons of each, and why should I break my Lulu obsession?”

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs} It’s just styles. I mean, for a while I did not like Lululemon pants anymore. I thought that the fabric, the luon fabric was too thick. That’s they’re signature trademark fabric, and I found it to be too warm, and actually just really liked the fabric from Splits 59. They did send me a lot of that stuff; I didn’t pay for it. They were sponsors. But, I just really grew to like it, and they’re a part of my regular rotation for sure. So I think I tend to grab the Splits 59 pants first when they’re clean, so that’s how you know which are my favorite. And because they’re fun colors and all that good stuff. But they’re pretty similar. So I would only break the obsession if you see a cool pair that you want to try that are a cool color. I wouldn’t just go for black if you love your black Lulu’s. So there’s that.

34. Will you have a “leaving for the West coast” party? [1:07:08]

Liz Wolfe: Ok. SarahDUW. “Diane, my cousin and I live in Montclair and are huge fans. We look for you whenever we go to Whole Foods.”

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs}

Liz Wolfe: “Will you be having a bon voyage event before you move west? We will miss you. The podcast and Practical Paleo have changed our lives.”

Diane Sanfilippo: I will not.

Liz Wolfe: Ok.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs}

35. First date with Scott [1:07:28]

Liz Wolfe: This one is from StephCAPL. “Just started listening and I’m loving the podcast. What did you do on your first date with Scott?” That’s cute.

Diane Sanfilippo: Well we first met after a book signing in Pittsburg. Bill and Hayley brought him to a book signing, and they actually weren’t at the signing event but we all went to a dinner right after. So that’s when we first met, but our first real date, it’s really kind of cute. We went to a restaurant called Legume, which ironically enough we were not eating Legumes, but it’s called Legume in Pittsburg, it’s like a super fancy restaurant there. I was at Bill and Hayley’s house before the date, Scott was working, and Hayley did my makeup so I looked all cute, {laughs} and I think Scott came and picked me up at their house like a proper first date, like I was you know 18 or something, and we went to the restaurant.

I guess Bill and Hayley had called the restaurant to have a bottle of wine or champagne sent to the table, and apparently Hayley totally leaked this out that Bill was just crying about the fact that he sent us this bottle of wine, and was like so excited for us to be on this date because it was such a long time coming for them to introduce us, and we hit it off so well right away. He and I had been talking for about a month before we had our first real date. We had been talking after we hung out a couple of times altogether with Bill and Hayley, so we kind of knew we liked each other a lot before that first date. So Bill was totally crying, and I actually cried a little bit, just teared up when he sent the wine to the table. They weren’t at the restaurant, they had called ahead. It was just really sweet, and I pretty much knew on our first date. I was like, yeah, I really like this guy. He’s a good one. So yeah, that was our first date, was dinner. A sappy dinner. {laughs}

36. Favorite bands [1:09:32]

Liz Wolfe: Sappy dinner. Alright, so let’s get through these last ones quickly. Pop culture and life in general related question. Kate Hudsonwood; “What are your favorite bands?” Diane.

Diane Sanfilippo: I’m going to have to say, probably the Beatles.

Liz Wolfe: Nice. I like James Taylor, if we’re going with classics.

Diane Sanfilippo: I’m a 60s music, like if I have to pick one era, I’m listening to the 60s. So.

37. Favorite guilty pleasure song [1:10:00]

Liz Wolfe: Alright, Jenny S. Stanley, “Favorite guilty pleasure song. This is the song you love listening to at home alone, but wouldn’t necessarily inflict on anyone else.” {laughs} I would inflict any of it.

Diane Sanfilippo: Yeah, so would I! {Laughs} I have no shame. I don’t know, maybe guilty pleasure songs in general, Jimmy Buffett. Anything Jimmy Buffett.

Liz Wolfe: I listen to Gloria Estefan’s Conga at home whenever I need a pick me up.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs} I think I knew that. That’s like trivia from back in the day, old episode of the podcast.

Liz Wolfe: Oh yeah.

Diane Sanfilippo: Yeah.

Liz Wolfe: It’s a throwback to the Birdcage, which I haven’t been able to bring myself to watch since we lost Robin Williams.

Diane Sanfilippo: Mm.

Liz Wolfe: Just picture Hank Azaria in the kitchen dancing to it.

Diane Sanfilippo: Oh yeah, of course.

38. If you were stranded on a desert island… [1:10:47]

Liz Wolfe: Alright, Andrada Kitchen, “For both of you, if you were stranded on a desert island and could only listen to one CD, watch one movie, and read one book, what would they be?” This just shows that Andrada Kitchen is from our era, because I think the appropriate thing to say would be playlist, not CD. {laughs}

Diane Sanfilippo: Totally!

Liz Wolfe: But I totally, like CD, that’s .

Diane Sanfilippo: Or like album, or album you would say now, right?

Liz Wolfe: Yeah. Ok, so one CD, one movie, one book.

Diane Sanfilippo: Alright, so I already said the Beatles, so I’m actually not going to say a Beatles album, I’m just going to say one that’s relevant now because I’ve been listening to it now. Beach Boys, Pet Sounds. That would be one CD. One movie; {laughs} this is so revealing, but I’m so corny like that, that probably I’ve got…

Liz Wolfe: Beaches?

Diane Sanfilippo: No. I’ve got 2 movies; 3 movies that I could probably. I have to narrow it down; 4! There’s 4 that I just narrowed it down to. Darn it. I think Mean Girls is coming off, I don’t think that’s going to be on there. Ok, 3 movies that I just love and could watch over and over; Grease, Ms. Doubtfire, and Pretty Woman. And it’s so random, and weird, but those are movies that I love. If they’re on an airplane, I’m watching them.

Liz Wolfe: Yeah.

Diane Sanfilippo: If they’re on TV, I am watching them. Ms. Doubtfire; Robin Williams, come on. And San Francisco? I mean, combine that with a little bit of drag action. It’s just amazing {laughs}. Anyway, one book. Jeeze. I don’t know, I’m not a book person. I guess maybe {laughs} I don’t know. Eat the Yolks. I’m going to bring Eat the Yolks.

Liz Wolfe: Yeah, exactly. Thank you.

Diane Sanfilippo: Mm-hmm. M-hmm. Mm-hmm.

Liz Wolfe: Alright, so for me, James Taylor’s greatest hits, and it would be really hard for the movie to chose between MASH, like old school with Donald Sutherland.

Diane Sanfilippo: Mm-hmm.

Liz Wolfe: Princess Bride.

Diane Sanfilippo: Oh!

Liz Wolfe: And I don’t know, I love watching the Social Network, just because…

Diane Sanfilippo: You had that on your iPad!

Liz Wolfe: I did?

Diane Sanfilippo: Yeah.

Liz Wolfe: I don’t have an iPad.

Diane Sanfilippo: It was Spence’s iPad or something on a trip we were on.

Liz Wolfe: Yeah.

Diane Sanfilippo: Yeah.

Liz Wolfe: Just because the score is so good. I think Trent Reznor had something to do with it. And I’m sure there are others; like Shawshank Redemption. It would just be a hard choice.

Diane Sanfilippo: I can’t believe I forgot to say Elf, but she was asking for one and now I’ve said 4.

Liz Wolfe: I know. It’s tough. We could spend all day on that.

Diane Sanfilippo: Ok.

Liz Wolfe: And then book wise, Practical Paleo, totally.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs} Shut up.

Liz Wolfe: But definitely To Kill a Mockingbird.

39. Celebrity crushes [1:31:31]

Liz Wolfe: Alright, Jenny Stanley. She asks, “Celebrity crushes. Top 3 you fancy?”

Diane Sanfilippo: Oh, shoot.

Liz Wolfe: Who do you fancy?

Diane Sanfilippo: I don’t feel like I know enough relevant celebrities.

Liz Wolfe: They don’t have to be relevant. You could even have a top one. I love Paul Rudd. Paul Rudd forever. Paul Rudd forever. Love you.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs} Did you see the Amy Poehler/Tina Fey intro to whatever it was, it must have been Golden Globes, and they play the game of would you rather, so it was alluding to at the beginning with desserts? You have to go watch this clip, because I feel like it’s you and I.

Liz Wolfe: Ok, but do you have anybody that you fancy?

Diane Sanfilippo: I don’t know. They were playing, would you rather, and it was this whole thing. I don’t know. I don’t know. No.

Liz Wolfe: Ok.

Diane Sanfilippo: I can’t think. I’ll come back to it. I’ll let it simmer.

40. Bucket list items [1:14:28]

Liz Wolfe: Ok. Katherine James “What’s something you want to do or experience before you die?”

Diane Sanfilippo: I just want to keep traveling and see more of the world.

Liz Wolfe: I want to go to the beach. Like literally, I just want to go and be on a beach and have nothing else to think about expect being with my little naked family on the beach. I don’t care where we go.

Diane Sanfilippo: What does Spence think about that?

Liz Wolfe: He’s aware.

Diane Sanfilippo: Ok.

Liz Wolfe: He’s aware of this demand. He should be working on it.

Diane Sanfilippo: Ok.

41. The red or the blue pill? [1:14:57]

Liz Wolfe: Alright, Suez Marty. “Would you chose the red pill or the blue pill?” Oh my gosh, my husband is obsessed with the Matrix. Shamefully, I cannot remember which is which.

Diane Sanfilippo: I have no idea what this means, so, yeah. Go ahead.

Liz Wolfe: It’s from the Matrix. But I would take whichever pill Neo ended up taking.

Diane Sanfilippo: I don’t know anything about the Matrix, because that’s how little I watch movies for all those good years in there. Just based on a completely noncontexualized question {laughs} if you’re asking me which pill, I’m just going to go blue. I don’t know. Red seems like deadly, so I’m going to blue.

Liz Wolfe: {laughs}

Diane Sanfilippo: Yeah.

42. Advice for your 10-year-old self [1:15:43]

Liz Wolfe: Alright. Mcalanann. “If you could go back and give your 10-year-old self one piece of advice, what would you tell her and why?” This one could get me a little choked up, I think.

Diane Sanfilippo: Hmm. What were we doing at 10 years old?

Liz Wolfe: We were just developing, probably, a sense of shame about our bodies and who we are as women. 10 years old, that’s kind of when girls start to get a little mean to each other. I remember I kind of started to realize that the world could be a little bit cruel around that age.

Diane Sanfilippo: That’s deep. I don’t think I was there yet. I think I was just still skinny kid in my GAP t-shirt and matching socks, and I don’t think I knew any of that.

Liz Wolfe: There were definitely the popular, the unpopular, and all of that stuff. I think would just tell myself, you do you, girl. You do you.

Diane Sanfilippo: Mmm. Yeah. Like, when you’re done with all this, none of these rankings matter. And generally those of you who are kind of hanging out in the middle are going to do just fine.

Liz Wolfe: That’s a tough one.

Diane Sanfilippo: Mm-hmm.

43. Favorite part of job [1:16:53]

Liz Wolfe: Alright. Unbound Wellness. “Congratulations! What’s your favorite part about your jobs?” I think congratulations on episode 200. What’s your favorite part about your jobs?

Diane Sanfilippo: Me, it’s freedom.

Liz Wolfe: Nice. My answer to this question is, this is a job?

Diane Sanfilippo: Mm-hmm.

44. What’s your ideal day [1:17:11]

Liz Wolfe: Aright, next one. Paleo to the Rescue. “Describe your ideal day, from when you wake up till you go back to sleep. Food, activities, weather, theme music, etc.?” Ok, don’t get that in detail, because I’m really going to need to breastfeed my kid in like 10 minutes.

Diane Sanfilippo: We don’t have that much time. My ideal day would not be working, except maybe a little bit. Maybe I’d check in somewhere so I’d feel like, mmm. But I’d be waking up pretty early, I’d be somewhere where there’s a beach and eating lots of fresh seafood and ceviche, and maybe a little dunk in the pool, and it’s not too hot/not too humid, and there’s Jimmy Buffett/Rastafarian music playing in the background and I’m just laying down and relaxing. That’s my perfect day really. I didn’t say it was realistic every day, but.

Liz Wolfe: Well, so I would have to say April 25th.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs}

Liz Wolfe: Because it’s not too hot,{laughs} and all you need is a light jacket. Beach day. I pretty much already answered that one.

Diane Sanfilippo: Ok.

45. Favorite way to destress? [1:18:16]

Liz Wolfe: Alright, E Watermelon. “What are your favorite ways to destress, both of you?”

Diane Sanfilippo: I like to take baths and I like to cook.

Liz Wolfe: I like to have my back tickled by my husband, but that doesn’t happen enough.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs}

46. If you had a million dollars … [1:18:38]

Liz Wolfe: Ok, Miss Kelly Anne. “If you each had a million dollars, ala BNL’s song, what would you gift each other?”

Diane Sanfilippo: Ohh. Liz, I would gift you…

Liz Wolfe: {laughs} A brain.

Diane Sanfilippo: Is it just one thing?

Liz Wolfe: {laughs} I would give you a brain.

Diane Sanfilippo: I would pay for a couple of employees for you for a couple of years.

Liz Wolfe: Oh shucks, that would be amazing. If I had a million dollars, I would gift Diane, I would send you a pygmy goat.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs} Ok.

Liz Wolfe: I’d just be like, here. Enjoy it.

Diane Sanfilippo: Ok. Awesome.

47. Skills magically learned [1:19:19]

Liz Wolfe: Ok. T Pop86. If you could magically have all the skills to have a different job, anything imaginable, what would it be?

Diane Sanfilippo: Oh I don’t know. I don’t really want to work that hard. {laughs}

Liz Wolfe: I would totally be a professional soccer player.

Diane Sanfilippo: You know what’s funny, I was actually going to say that I would be a circus performer, but I don’t want to do that job, I just want those skills. Does that make sense?

Liz Wolfe: Yeah, totally.

Diane Sanfilippo: Isn’t that funny that we both said something that’s kind of physical. It’s what I was thinking, but I was like, I don’t really want to do that job. I don’t want to travel with and get paid, I don’t know what they get paid. I don’t want to do that, I just want the skills.

Liz Wolfe: I don’t want to do that.

Diane Sanfilippo: I don’t want to do it.

Liz Wolfe: What I’ve sort of been doing lately is kickboxing.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs}

48. Same outfit every single day [1:20:04]

Liz Wolfe: Ok. Casey Barnes OLF.

Diane Sanfilippo: Zero.

Liz Wolfe: “If you had to wear the same outfit every single day for the next year, what would it be.” This is assuming that I haven’t worn the same outfit.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughing}

Liz Wolfe: Every single day for the last year {laughs}. Which I have been, which is a black tank top and Lululemon pants, the studio pants because they have pockets. That’s what I wore my entire pregnancy, every single day.

Diane Sanfilippo: {laughs}

Liz Wolfe: And still wear it.

Diane Sanfilippo: That’s pretty much what you wore every day that I ever knew you.

Liz Wolfe: Yeah. I’ve got some pockets to put your stuff when you’re moving the house so you can keep your phone with you.

Diane Sanfilippo: Mm-hmm.

Liz Wolfe: That’s it.

Diane Sanfilippo: If I had to wear the same thing every day, it would definitely be some kind of black leggings and some kind of tank top. Yeah, {laughs} black leggings and some kind of colored tank top and a hooded sweatshirt that’s not too messy looking so I can wear it wherever. Yeah, that’s it.

49. Favorite Mean Girls line? [1:21:04]

Liz Wolfe: Alright, final question for this incredibly self indulgent, self possessed podcast that we just did. This is from Cook it up Paleo. “Favorite Mean Girls line?” Diane?

Diane Sanfilippo: I feel like we’re not going to be able to do just one.

Liz Wolfe: We should both shout it out at the same time.

Diane Sanfilippo: Uh.

Liz Wolfe: Ready, one, two, three.

Diane Sanfilippo: Is butter a carb? {laughs}

Liz Wolfe: You can’t sit with us.

Diane Sanfilippo: You can’t sit with us? That’s a good one. Is butter a carb has to be, as related to this podcast, it certainly is. Is butter a carb.
