What French Women Can Teach Us About Food And Life with Tonya Leigh

Have you ever seen a French woman who has so much ease and joie de vivre and thought, “I want what she’s having?” What if you could have more fun and experience more pleasure, and improve yourself along the way? The good news is personal development doesn’t have to be so hard and stressful or all work and no play!

Welcome back to Once Upon a Food Story episode #8 with Tonya Leigh. Tonya is a certified Master Life Coach and founder of The French Kissed Life. Tonya works with women all over the globe helping them to create more joy, beauty, and meaning in their lives. After visiting Paris and observing the women feeling so comfortable in their bodies, Tonya went from a size 20 to a size 2 by embracing the lessons she learned there, trading the obsessive calorie counting and diet mentality for a more carefree way of eating and living.

Now, after years of being connected to her mind and body, she believes that you have the power within you to become the person you are meant to be… and you can enjoy the journey, no matter where you are in the world. Tune in and let Tonya inspire you to start experiencing true pleasure on your plate and in your life!
