Let’s talk about food! We follow intuitive eating, an evidence-based model and self-care eating framework integrating instinct, emotion, and rational thought that ultimately teaches you how to be the expert of your body, rather than leaning on outside rules to make your eating decisions. Intuitive eating does not mean ignoring health; rather, it’s recognizing that nutrition and health are NOT a one-size-fits-all approach.
Intrigued? Read this Q&A with an Intuitive Eating Nutritionist, and then check out Why Diets Don’t Work + What to Do Instead and How Intuitive Eating and the Anti-Inflammatory Can Co-Exist.
