  • Season 12, Episode 2: Culinary Nutrition: How to Cook for Health and Taste with Meghan Telpner

    13/10/2021 Duración: 01h10min

    Learning to cook was an important step in ending my food battle. And then post-Truce with Food, I found myself less interested in food, cooking included.  Cooking became “assembling”. We still ate most of our meals at home; it just became some version of frozen vegetable, rice and chicken, give or take some garlic powder. Meh but manageable.   Then we became new, sleep-deprived parents and COVID hit. Cooking was important but even less of a priority. I knew when I did have the time and energy, I enjoyed cooking if it was simple and delicious. How could I get back to a place where cooking was sustainable, simple and enjoyable? I asked Meghan Telpner, founder of the Academy of Culinary Nutrition, to help sort out the jumble of feelings many of us feel towards cooking. Sometimes cooking feels like a chore. And sometimes it fills our soul. How can we make cooking and the food we eat more satisfying? In this episode, Meghan shares: 1. Easy ways to incorporate the flavors and foods that reduce and eliminate craving

After some time away from the mic, Ali gives a personal update and shares:  An unexpected root cause of why we don’t feel satisfied from healthy food and how to change this (and why COVID made eating healthier so much harder) The food shift that instantly reduces cravings while increasing satisfaction of healthy food. The three main lifestyle factors that make healthy food and life more satisfying The sleep-food connection and sleep trouble-shooting tips based on what Ali’s learning from her own sleep coach and perimenopause An overview of the stress-pleasure “checkbook” physiology, its affect on how much we think about food, our food satisfaction and how to balance it

    We have so many beliefs about working out: mainly that we should do the same thing and always be “crushing it”. But this approach to working out doesn’t honor the ebb and flow of women’s bodies.
