Listen on Apple Podcasts, Spotify or online


This week, I’m speaking with Cindia Luest, a writer, entrepreneur and creative powerhouse behind Spice Journeys, a lifestyle company that draws upon culinary storytelling with a mission to bring food and culture to life while sparking conversations for positive change.


Health & Life Coach Heidi Hauer shows you how to use intuitive tools and access life-changing mindset shifts that support you in leading an abundant, meaningful and successful life.

In the episode, Cindia draws us into her exquisite and sensory world of food, inviting us to see it as a window into tradition, ritual, creativity and pleasure. We talk about her new novel The Spice Temple, a mysterious story set in a Swiss villa that weaves together a thrilling tale of magic, manipulation and vengeance – and, of course, food!

As Cindia shares the process of writing her book, we delve into an inspiring conversation about cultivating creativity, finding inspiration, and working through the functional and celebratory stages of writing. We also address what authors should think about when it comes to the big question: how to approach publishing.

Whether you’re a writer, creator or a passionate foodie, this episode is for you.
