How to Kick Your Sugar Habit (featuring Mareya Ibrahim)

Hello! Welcome to the Motivating Mom podcast. I am your host Lisa Druxman and it is my hope to inspire you, motivate you and give you the support you need in your day. This is a special episode that is part of our That Mom series. What is That Mom you ask?

Well it started when my son Jacob was upset about me bringing healthy snacks to his game. “I don’t want you to be that mom” he said. Well I don’t want to be that mom either. So, I am wanting to educate you on why we all need to be that mom. I am interviewing some of my favorite mom food ambassadors. And my guest today I’m lucky enough to call my friend.
