Episode 495: Aarti Sequeira on What Praying Before You Cook Can Do

This is a fun one, y’all! Yours and my favorite Food Network Star, Aarti Sequeira is back to talk all about how her faith impacts her professional life, aging publicly, and staying true to who she is. I am SO excited that Aarti is back on the pod! Her new devotional cookbook, Unwind, is out now. Y’all. This book. It’s amazing! I just love this whole idea. My soul felt so full after talking to Aarti and I know yours will too.
