What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

We’ve all done it. Eaten because we’re stressed out and need a quick escape, or we have found ourselves mindlessly eating something just because it’s there. I'm sure you completely recognize that these behaviors aren’t ideal. Mindless munching and eating under stress can completely sabotage any forward movement toward your physical goals, not to mention your emotional and spiritual health, too. 

But how can you stop self-sabotaging?

On this episode, we’re going to discuss emotional vs. unemotional eating, and how both are a result of turning your brain off while eating. You’ll learn how to become more mindful, intuitive and aware in these situations. You’re also going to be armed with strategies to combat these behaviors and stay the course with your eating habits.

These are some great questions to ask yourself while you pause and slow down to eat:

  • How do I like the taste, the texture? Is it overly salty or fake or super sweet?
  • How does this food make me feel? How will this food make me feel in 10, 20 or 30 minutes?
  • Does this food line up with how I know I should be eating right now?
  • If this is more of a splurge-type food, is this my favorite splurge? Or am I kind of wasting a splurge right now on something I don’t even really like?
  • Is there anything that I can add to this or do entirely different right now to make this meal or eating situation even better and line up with my eating habits?  


Your questions answered!
At the end of the episode, I’ll be answering your questions about food, fitness, and faith.

From Jenna: "Any tips on how to slow down while eating? I feel that I race through meal prep, eat quickly between standing up 5 times during the meal, then hop up to be in front of the kids after the meal."

From Heather: "I see you working out barefoot a lot in your workout videos. Is that something I should be doing, too? What are the advantages of working out barefoot?"
