This week I’m talking with Sarah Schutz, creator of The Cutting Veg blog and @thecuttingveg on Instagram! Sarah not only has a healthy-living blog, but she is working toward getting her PhD while working full-time as a research analyst for the government in Washington D.C.! Shoutout to Sarah for finding a quiet spot in a hotel in NYC — she is a dedicated, loyal friend, and I truly appreciate it!
In this episode, Sarah shares her top tips on how to maintain a healthy lifestyle while being extremely busy with a full-time job and school. She talks about meal prepping, her top Trader Joe’s finds, and how to be more active at work. We also talk about time management, scheduling, and how to balance school / work / a social life / and creative endeavors. We also discuss what it’s like to be a woman in a male-dominated major in college, why women are afraid to speak up, and how women are viewed in different countries. Sarah shares her experience going to an all-women college and having a career that is primarily filled with men. We also talk about eating for your own body, diet fads on Instagram, health lies on social media, and honesty about ads on Instagram.
