Small Steppers Win – Sid Garza Hillman – Episode 52

Sid Garza-Hillman is a Small-Stepper. That may seem insignificant, and that’s the point. So many insignificant and small steps, incorporated into you life, make a very significant difference.


Sid is the author of Approaching the Natural: A Health Manifesto and Raising Healthy Parents: Small Steps, Less Stress, and a Thriving Family. He graduated from UCLA with a BA in Philosophy, is a public speaker, podcaster (What Sid Thinks Podcast), certified nutritionist, and Small Steps Coach–teaching his unique approach to healthy living at He is the Stanford Inn Eco-Resort’s Wellness Programs Director, co-creator with Matt Frazier of Health Made Simple, and Race Director of the sold-out Mendocino Coast 50K trail ultramarathon.


Sid and I connected on his path to becoming a small-stepper (what is this anyway?) and nutritionist. His health and wellness approach is truly remarkable. On the podcast we talk about his approach to nutrition and rating the health of foods, solving stress which resolves stress-eating, parenting children in a healthy way, COVID-19, replacing poor habits with healthy habits, little victories, SHOULD-ing on yourself, dealing with overwhelm easily and keeping things fun, the Mendocino 50 kilometer race he organizes, his next book, and….. home roasting coffee!
