Blood Sugar Balancing Hacks

with podcast guest

The Glucose Goddess, Jessie Inchauspe


Jessie Inchauspé, better known as the Glucose Goddess on Instagram, is on a mission to translate cutting-edge science into easy tips to help people improve their physical and mental health. She holds a Master of Science in biochemistry from Georgetown University, and her work at a genetic analysis start-up in Silicon Valley made her realize that food habits beat genetics for good health. In her new book, Glucose Revolution, Jessie walks readers through easy-to-implement hacks that will help them balance their blood sugar.

In this episode, Jessie and I talk about why balancing her blood sugar was a central turning point for Jessie’s heath, symptoms of glucose spikes, the connection between blood sugar spikes, inflammation, and your reproductive health, why this is essential for people with PCOS, how breakfast can set you up for success the rest of your day, and so much more!

If you’ve been hanging out with me for any time, you’ll know that I talk a lot about blood sugar and how much it impacts our hormones and menstrual cycles. I hope you get so much from this conversation, and I’d love to hear what you think. Let me know over on Instagram (@NicoleMJardim).

Hormone balance is essential for healthy, regular periods, and getting enough nourishment is essential to hormone balance.
