What other’s have said about the Plan Simple Podcast…

“Mia brings together the ideas and people to inspire a more balanced and meaningful life as a mom. She keeps it real and makes me laugh! I listen while I clean, walk, drive and fold laundry. She’d like a wise and caring friend who understands and supports the journey of motherhood. Mia know just what to say so that I feel understood and then provides the nuggets of wisdom with personal stories to reinvigorate my day.”
“Each week, I look forward to this podcast. Mia thoughtfully interviews guests who share their tips and tricks for encouraging healthy living for moms and their families. The ideas are not the traditional ones, and I am always in need of new, slightly unconventional ideas.”
“I love the simple and practical view that Mia takes on food and life. It encourages me to keep leading a healthy lifestyle that is accessible for any mom!”
