Jeannette Ogden of @shutthekaleup on Balance, Mothering, and Collagen

Jeannette Ogden, the woman behind the popular Instagram platform @shutthekaleup, is all about balance.

She’s the kind of person who firmly believes in the power of nourishing foods, and also in treating yourself to wholesome desserts made with real ingredients. She also happens to believe in the power of collagen protein, and incorporates it in her daily routine to keep her healthy.

In addition to taking care of her own body, Jeannette is a mom, and sat down with us to tell us about why she prioritizes health and nutrition in her home. Growing up, she didn’t get a lot of exposure to healthy habits, and when she finally did start learning about healthy eating, she quickly learned that it’s all too easy to become preoccupied and obsessive over what you eat.

“I got very obsessive over food, so it was always back and forth, I either wouldn’t eat enough or I was eating way too much. And then I found a balance by just being around people who love me, being honest about my relationship with food, and that really helped. That’s when I felt like I was normal.”

Today, Jeannette has found her balance. And she’s inspired thousands of other women and moms to develop a happy balance in their lives, encompassing both health and happiness. Check out our interview with Jeannette to learn more about her story.
