Get ready to meet your newest Lifestyle Blogger BFF, Audrey Dunham! Audrey is a certified nutritionist, fitness trainer and a former fitness competitor. After years of enduring a super strict diet (and not a very healthy one, she admits) and exercise plan, she now wants to educate the world about plant-based nutrition. The food-loving cook and baker has created her own series of health seminars — Plant-Based, Slim Living—Simplified — which is launching at the Hollywood Improv.
In this fun, breezy interview, Audrey talks about her life as the wife of comedian Jeff Dunham and mom to 2-year-old twin boys, Jack and James. Plus, she discusses easy meal prep and intuitive eating, developing a new mindset about working out and making meaningful connections on social media. We also discuss her transition from being Jeff’s constant companion to being an at-home mom, and how she keeps her relationships in check. Really, you will feel like you just met your newest workout bud!
