For me, prioritizing eating intuitively defines my approach to food and includes,

  • Going out for dinner and choosing what I’d really like to eat, free from guilt
  • Enjoying the vibrancy of colourful meals and snacks
  • Exploring new recipes in the kitchen, both sweet and savoury

  • Seeing food as a joyful aspect of gatherings and celebrations with family and friends

I truly believe that there is so much more to food than…
