The Appetite

Aug 22, 2019

Do you know how to eat in a healthy way? Most answers to the question of healthy eating actually have more to do with what foods you should be eating, rather than the HOW; Ellyn Satter digs into this, offering adults scaffolding for the how behind building a healthy relationship to food (both for one’s self and for those adults that are parents, modeling healthy eating for their kids). In this first of a four-part series on Satter’s “eating competency skills,” Opal Co-Founder and Nutrition Director, Julie Church, RDN, CEDRD-S, CD talks with host Carter Umhau, LMHC on the skill of “Food Acceptance.” Food Acceptance is all about the acceptance of appetite and our desire for food.
