Episode 32

Moniqua Plante (Nashville, Drop Dead Diva) wears many hats as an actress, producer, writer, and holistic health coach. After a two month-long case of food poisoning, she found the solution in natural healing and she was hooked into the world of self-love, care, and nourishment. She talks with Ed and Rachelle about the dangers of artificial sweeteners, the importance of gut health, and a trick that actors should use to get rid of nerves about auditions.

2. Stay creative.
