Jessica Murnane is a wellness advocate, podcast host, and soon-to-be cookbook author.
Her cookbook, One Part Plant, will be released in Spring 2017 with HarperCollins/Harper Wave, and you can find tons of recipes (and more) at jessicamurnane.com.
Her podcast, called One Part Podcast, features conversations with some of the most interesting and inspiring minds in wellness, music, food, fashion, and design.
In this episode, Jessica talks to me openly and honestly about endometriosis - what it is, her symptoms and how she was diagnosed, all of the treatments that didn't work, and finally the dietary and lifestyle changes that have healed her pain. Since this is a condition that I might have as well, it was such a comfort and a relief to hear the truth from Jessica. We talk about the importance of being your own health advocate, the emotional challenge of changing your diet and your life, and the grief that comes when you no longer eat the same foods as your friends and family. She also shares some stories from working on her first cookbook, plus the dark side of living and working online - such as dealing with haters, trolls, and mean comments. So basically we talk about a lot of different stuff, and Jessica is super open and honest about it all. Enjoy!

I HAD to comment on this before I finished the podcast. What an amazing topic to get out into the world. Endo (and it’s cousins, I was just diagnosed with adenomyosis) are complex, complicated, and confusing. Empowering women to take charge of their bodies and get diagnoses is so important. But what I REALLY appreciated was the frank talk about how eating “differently” SUCKS sometimes. Yes, we all know WHY and have committed to do it, but some days are worse than others. Thanks so much for what you do and keep up the amazing work.
