Megan Hallett is a practicing nutrition and holistic health coach currently studying to be a nutritional therapist at London’s college of naturalistic medicine. She’s a huge wellness enthusiast, recipe developer, and voice behind the blog Plant-Based Londoner. Megan’s interest in hormone health came when she was diagnosed with PCOS as a teenager and was left frustrated to find doctors simply prescribed pills to mask the symptoms, rather than providing any information to enable her to tackle the root cause. Megan is also the author of The Happy Balance: The Original Plant-Based Approach For Hormone Health, which features a chapter I contributed on hormonal health and periods throughout the lifecycle. It is now available in bookstores everywhere.

In this episode, we talk about how Megan’s health journey led to her fascination with hormonal health, our motivation to write The Happy Balance, what you can learn from the book, why every diet doesn’t work for everybody, how to take a healthy approach to starting a plant-based diet, and so much more!

  • The problem with the medical profession’s persistent recommendation to use birth control pills to treat hormonal issues
  • How The Happy Balance goes beyond the recipes to teach women about hormonal health
  • Why Megan and I decided to take a flexible plant-based approach in the book
  • How increasing our vegetable intake positively impacts our hormonal health
  • Why you shouldn’t become attached to specific dietary labels

  • Why healthy fats and protein are essential for good hormonal health
  • Why being vegan doesn’t work well for everyone
  • How to take a healthy approach when starting a plant-based diet
  • The types of recipes included in The Happy Balance
  • Why it was important to Megan and me for the book to be positive and accessible
