Has your relationship with food been like mine? Varying degrees of complicated? There is a constant contradictory noise around food and nutrition making it difficult to know what to do, what to eat, what’s ok and who to believe. This week, episode 130 of the Positively Living Podcast is about simple ways to make food work for you!

In this episode of the Positively Living Podcast, my guest Wendy Hill brings her perspective as both an experienced nutritionist and a total foodie on how we can heal our relationship with food by understanding what it does to us and for us. She also gives you actionable steps to take right now to make small changes, starting with your next plate and healthier food choices that you can enjoy. 

Wendy and I cover the following topics:

  • Reframing how we think about food, particularly what we view as a “treat” for ourselves. 
  • Taking time to slow down and enjoy the food we’re eating to promote better digestion and absorption of nutrients. 
  • The four components of a balanced plate. 
  • Simple changes we can make to our meals to get the most benefit from the foods we eat. 
  • The difference between processed foods and convenience foods. 

It’s not just the food we eat that matters but the way we eat and our lifestyle surrounding it. You’d be surprised at the simple changes you can make that will have a huge impact on your overall nutrition.
